Valentine's Day is a holiday dedicated to celebrating love and affection between close companions on February the 14th. Every year, countless amounts of people around the world express their feelings for their nearest & dearest by exchanging gifts.
If you're buying for your boyfriend, spouse, girlfriend, or crush, choosing the right gift can be a challenge, let alone something that will truly catch their attention. In this short blog, we'll explore the most sold gifts on Valentine's Day and why they remain popular choices year after year
1 - Chocolates
We often associate food being the quickest way to a significant others heart. Chocolates have long been associated with Valentine's Day as a way of showing your affection. Everything from a heart-shaped box of truffles to a big bag of their favourite confectionary from the supermarket, anything to please a sweet tooth can be a winner on Valentine’s Day.
2 - Flowers
Sometimes nothing can scream romance like a bunch of flowers. From the local petrol station, through to a local independent florist, a well-presented set of roses or tulips can be a fantastic way to express your feelings for someone without the need for words.
3 - Hampers
You can show someone how well you know them, or seem to, by gifting them a luxury hamper. While we might be bias at Spicers of Hythe, but no matter how well you know them a hamper can be a fantastic way of appearing to have their taste down to a tee. Include anything from a bottle of bold red wine, through to a case of beers. A gift hamper can be a clever way of appearing to know their taste, while you may not be 100% certain.
The bonus of course for hampers is whatever you choose to gift them, they might even let you share!
To conclude, three of the most popular valentine’s gifts we’ve mentioned all have short shelf lives. Not to be doom and gloom but flowers, if they aren’t plastic, will inevitably wilt, chocolates will be devoured & food or drink hampers enjoyed. It’s up to you on which gift will leave the best and longest impression this Valentine’s Day.
Good luck & fingers crossed they love it!
