Catch feelings with flowers 

Everyone loves a little old-fashioned romance and there’s no better way to show them how you feel like a bunch of sweet-smelling flowers. Did you know different flowers hold different meanings? Whether you want to support a flower shop and shower them with a bouquet in person or want to surprise them by sending a bunch of letterbox flowers to their door, a pretty posy of their favourite blossoms is a sure way to their heart. We love the idea of setting them the task of working out the secret message in their bouquet too!

A touch of personality

Looking for a unique gift that'll really stand out from the crowd? There’s an array of gorgeous options when it comes to personalised gifts and they’re guaranteed to give them that warm fuzzy feeling! 

From your greatest snap together canvased on the wall to personalised calendars to count down to your big adventures together, photo gifts will remind them of the good times you’ve had and the memories you’ll make when you’re reunited. Alternatively, why not opt for a special name, song, or date engraved onto a gorgeous keepsake? After all, what’s more, romantic than etching a special lyric or message onto a stunning piece of jewellery like a personalised necklace or personalised bracelet? It’s certain to hold that sentimental value for years to come. Another option is to grab handmade gifts such as personalised wine glasses and personalised gin bottles - great for couples who love a tipple together and a wonderful way to celebrate the day at home. Whatever you choose, a personalised gift is sure to create lasting memories. 

Grab a gift card  

You seriously can’t go wrong with an e-gift card or voucher! An essential if you’re away for the big day or living long distance at the moment, a sweet surprise such as this in their inbox is certain to make their day. Ideal for both new and long-term relationships, gift cards are a fantastic solution for if you haven't been together long and don’t know what they’re in to, and also a fail-safe option for if you’re married to the love of your life and still can never seem to get it right.

You can purchase a gift card for them to spend at their most loved brands from fashion and tech to homeware and experiences, perfect for him or for her. With an array of big names to choose from they’re sure to be spoilt for choice!  

If you are not sure what your partner wants, you can grab a Chooza Gift Card and let them choose!

Delicious treats 

Fabulous food - need we say more? Bubbled up with your other half and can’t get out to your favourite restaurant right now? Why not bring the restaurant to them? Few people can resist a delicious meal or a night in with some mouth-wateringly delectable treats. If you really want to wow, perhaps you could make a Valentine’s themed hamper complete with a bottle of bubbly, a richly naughty dessert and a seriously tasty dinner for two. 

Alternatively, you could set up an at home cinema night and snuggle up in front of their favourite film with a chocolate box filled with decadence. You could make it even more personal by putting together a food hamper filled with their favourite snacks. Did you know that you can get customisable versions of their fave brands including personalised Nutella, Toblerone and Cadbury chocolate? 

If you are planning to indulge on a takeaway to tuck into on the big night in, then you could purchase a Chooza Eats takeaway gift card where you can treat your partner to their favourite takeaway delivered directly to their door. No need to get hangry, with Chooza Eat everything is on the menu! Whether it’s pizza, Chinese, kebab, desserts or an Indian curry that they crave … give them the choice of thousands of takeaways across the UK.  

The internet can be a real blessing in times like this and if you’re apart and want to feel connected, why not set up a watch party on Netflix, or have dinner over zoom and get the hamper delivered to their door? They’ll still feel spoilt and you can feel closer together too.

Add a little ambience 

Does your partner deserve to take a well-earned break? It can be hard to wind down when your happy place is now also your office and the kids’ school. Why not help them to chill out with a signature candle? There’s something incredibly comforting and special about the warm glow of a candle flame and it’ll bring an element of relaxation instantly into the room- not to mention they’ll come in handy for that previously mentioned candlelit dinner too!   

There’s an abundance of choices when it comes to wax themed gifts. You could opt for a popular brand name that you know will never fail like a scented candle from Yankee Candle, or we all know someone who is obsessed with wax melts and if that sounds like your other half, you could permeate the room with their favourite scent. Every time they burn it they’ll be reminded of you. We needn’t tell you of how utterly romantic it is to fill your abode with the rosy ambience of candlelight. Go on, light a flame in their heart this Valentine's Day.
