How to get Valentine's Day gifts right

How to get Valentine's Day gifts right

It may not feel like two minutes have passed since Christmas, but somehow Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. So if the occasion has rather crept up on you this year, we don’t blame you.

However, we’d wager that your beloved would not be so understanding if you overlook a gift on the most romantic day of the year. And take note - it’s advisable not to leave it to the last minute.

Guardian readers recently shared the worst gift they have received on Valentine’s Day - which included a handful of chocolate Santas, one half-eaten. Other curious gifts included dog biscuits and a potato with a cocktail stick stuck in it.

The cliche of hastily-purchased petrol station flowers will probably not cut it either. If you are struggling with gift ideas though, we are here to help. We think a fully personalised gift is the perfect way of showing you’ve put in lots of effort to make your partner feel loved and cherished - and it is clear the gift was not picked up on the drive home!

We’ve come up with some amazing options to wow the significant other in your life - and the good news is there is still plenty of time to order in time for February 14th!

Check out our recommendations below and get designing…


Heart Star Map

Select a place, date, and time to create a design showing the night sky (or day!) as it was, or will be, at that location, at your chosen moment, in a beautiful heart shape. It’s the perfect romantic gesture and an ideal way to capture your most important relationship moment.


Dual Star Map

This design allows you to capture two bespoke maps of the night sky on one print. It’s the ideal way to capture the birth dates of two children or important relationship milestones.
