With Valentine’s Day approaching faster than an arrow from Cupid’s bow, you might be worried that you’ve left it too late to surprise your loved one with a Valentine’s gift for him or her that says ‘You mean the world to me’. But don’t fret! Not only have we come up with a host of thoughtful and inexpensive personalised Valentine’s presents – all of which can be ordered and collected in-store in as little as two hours – we’ve also drawn up an around-the-clock Valentine’s Day action plan to keep your sweetheart happy all day!
As 14 February falls on a Thursday this year, it might be tempting to put off the celebrations until after work. But why wait? Get the day off to a romantic start by setting your alarm early so you can enjoy a leisurely snuggle before the emails and conference calls start vying for your attention. As a romantic surprise, leave a Valentine’s gift on their bedside table to wake up to. Along with your card, a pretty photo snow dome with a romantic picture of the pair of you is the ideal gift to bring a smile to their face as soon as they open their eyes!
Of course, bringing your Valentine breakfast in bed is one of the nicest things you can do. In our fast-paced world, breakfast is often the first thing to suffer – slice of soggy toast on the run, anyone? – so Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show your other half exactly how important they are. Naturally, you’ll want to make your brekkie Instagram-worthy (is it even a Valentine’s breakfast if you don’t show it off?) so we’re talking smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, a stack of pancakes, or even eggs fried in a heart-shaped mould. Put the finishing touch to the breakfast tray with another little surprise – a couple of glasses of buck’s fizz, served on gorgeous personalised glass coasters showing wonderful images of a special time together.
Forget over-the-top bouquets of ridiculously expensive flowers – it’s the little gestures that will really tug at the heart strings. Our cute personalised keyrings are just the ticket, so why not surprise your love by secretly attaching one to their keys before they leave the house for work? Aww. While you’re there, you could order a romantic photo fridge magnet or two too, so that every time they reach for the milk from now on, they’ll get a warm, fuzzy feeling when they see your happy faces smiling back at them!
If it gets to mid-morning on Valentine’s Day and you still haven’t sorted out a special gift for the one you love, we’re here to help! Some of the easiest, most thoughtful and personal gifts you can give are sitting on your phone. Select your favourite photos of you and your partner, order them to be printed, and pick them up in your local Jessops store in your lunch hour. The gift of a box of carefully curated photos that show just how much they mean to you will go down a treat. Choose the most romantic moments from places you’ve visited, events you’ve attended and special times you’ve shared – think sunsets on your favourite holiday, dancing until dawn last summer, and the very first snap of you together.
Want to set hearts fluttering and earn extra Valentine brownie points? Then
welcome your Valentine home from work with a beautiful Heart Photo Glitter Box Frame. Not only is it the perfect way to celebrate your love, it’ll brighten up any boring hall table, work space or neglected windowsill. This super-cute gift is guaranteed to become a talking point wherever you decide to keep it, as passers-by won’t be able to resist giving it a little shake to watch all the hearts drifting over your photo!
Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a hearty homemade meal. Recreating a dish from one of your favourite holiday destinations or local restaurants will show that you’ve put a lot of thought into your meal and really want to make the evening special. Set a romantic vibe by decorating the room with candles or fairy lights in jars. To make the meal extra memorable, decorate your house with photo prints << https://photo.jessops.com/product/click-and-collect-photo-prints >> or photo Vision Blocks << https://photo.jessops.com/product/vision-blocks-click-and-collect-in-2-hours/ >> of magical memories, create a playlist of your favourite songs, and link them to moments and places that mean something to you both and will spark happy memories you can relive together.
So you’ve spent the day or evening spoiling your loved one with all sorts of precious gifts. Surely there’s nothing more you can do, right? Wrong! Now’s the time to really put the icing on the cake by presenting them with a breathtaking Multi Frame Print featuring four, 13 or 16 of your most romantic moments. This gift will be a lasting reminder of your love – not just on 14 February, but all year round. Order yours and make this Valentine’s Day the best one ever!
