So, You're Looking For Valentine’s Day Ideas - Exactly What Makes a Great Valentine’s Day Gift?

Valentine’s day is a celebration that is familiar to us all and it’s one that has it’s origins way back in the annals of history. It's believed that the name came about during the 3rd Century AD when Emperor Claudius II executed two men, both named Valentine in different years, but coincidentally both on February the 14th. The men were seen by the Catholic church as martyrs to the cause, which led to their canonisation and the birth of the celebration that we know today.

The celebration is enjoyed by millions in many parts of the world as a day on which to show your undying love to that special person in your life. However, it’s not one that’s met with universal approval, as believe it or not, it’s actually illegal to celebrate in Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Pakistan, as it’s seen as immoral under Islamic law.

Despite this, Valentine’s Day is still widely enjoyed by couples across the globe and this article, we take a look at exactly what constitutes a great Valentine’s Day gift.

Cheap or Expensive?

There is a tendency to assume that the more expensive and extravagant a Valentine’s Day gift is, the better it is, however when we did a little research, the spending trends of couples didn’t necessarily reflect that. Whilst most men typically spend less than women do on Valentine’s day gifts for him, the majority still spend under £10 on their other halves.

Spending a low-ish amount like this does place a limit on the sort of thing it’s possible to buy, which is potentially why the most popular of the available Valentine’s day gifts for her is a card and box of chocolates. Those spending more than £10 went for options like a romantic night out and jewellery, with a few bucking the trend and going for expensive items for their partner.

Meaningful and Heartfelt

The common theme amongst all the research we carried out was that most people will try and give their partner a gift from the heart, with the cost being largely an irrelevant factor. Everyone has had to tighten their belts in recent years, so it’s little wonder that many are having to celebrate Valentine's day on a budget.
