It’s that time of year again. 14 February 2023 is just around the corner and if you’re anything like me you probably haven’t had a chance to cherry-pick a present for your special someone just yet—or, you’re simply avoiding it because you’re completely stuck on where to begin. Either way, Valentine’s Day can be daunting for a number of reasons, and it’s a good reminder that you never need an excuse to treat someone, no matter your relationship status.

However, if you are crushing on someone this year, here’s a list of five presents guaranteed to drag their attention away from their FYP. And if all fails, I’m sure Chat GTP has some good ideas as well.

1. Go classic with a box of chocolates

There are very few things in this life that can’t be solved with a box of chocolates. And if you add a hue of luxury on top, you’re almost certain to win over your crush. Godiva is the Jeffree Star of chocolate brands—rich, dripping in luxury and prone to controversy. But when it comes to V Day, you can’t go wrong with a collection of Godiva treats.

Coming in a rosy plush red keepsake box, Godiva’s £68.76 Valentine’s Day Fabric Heart Chocolate Gift Box features 37 decadent treats. If this gift doesn’t sweeten up your crush, nothing will.

2. Go big or go home: the romantic getaway

If you’re looking to push the boat out, there’s always the option to whisk your crush away on a mini break. Take a day of annual leave and spend 48 hours pretending that Rishi Sunak doesn’t actually exist, if you know what I mean.

If you already have a specific destination in mind, then you should do you, boo. But if you’re a bit stuck on where to escape, then I’ve got a tested and approved getaway for you. Situated in beautiful Tarragona, eastern Spain, the spacious and bright Classic Mare room features impressive views of the sea, and even comes accompanied with a bottle of cava to set the mood, and the most romantic meal known to man—strawberries and chocolates.

Also included in the package is a buffet breakfast for two. Stay in and enjoy the room or go out and explore the city’s rich culture—either way, this present is the perfect way to make some incredible memories with your beloved.

At only £120.38, you honestly can’t go wrong with this one. Valentine’s Day is only a couple of days away, so hurry up and head over to  H10’s website to book this bargain.

3. Put on a show (the right kind)

Okay, okay—this one will definitely set you back a couple of hundreds, but you can’t put a price on love, am I right? Pick up some tickets to one of 2023’s most anticipated shows, Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour.

Belt your heart out to all of Queen Bey’s hits with your favourite person by your side, and make memories that will last forever. Just make sure you order yourself a silver cowboy hat beforehand.

Alternatively, if you aren’t a member of the Beyhive, TicketNetwork also has tickets to one of the hottest and longest-running West End theatre shows, The Lion King. Tap into your childhood nostalgia with a live on-stage rendition of your favourite Disney story—I have been, and trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

Beyoncé tickets are currently available for £332.88 on TicketNetwork. If I sold you more on The Lion King musical, tickets start at $69, so £56.65.

4. Capture your love

No need to break the bank when it comes to showing someone just how much you care about them. Compile all the special moments you’ve spent with them in Snapfish’s LOVE Linen Photo Book, which retails at £28.99, and offer them the chance to never forget about your relationship’s highlights.

5. Treat yo damn self

This one is pretty much a 2-for-1 present. Give your crush some well-deserved relaxation time and create the perfect date night all in one go. If you tend to be extra, create an at-home spa experience with candles and zen music.

LOOKFANTASTIC’s skincare package is currently on sale for £24.50 and includes a set of 12 facemasks. You can use them for V Day and beyond.
