How to Buy the Perfect Valentine's Day Gifts

  • Occasions

I know what you’re thinking and I know that we haven't even made it through Christmas yet. Whilst you’re absolutely right (I haven’t finished my Christmas shopping), there’s nothing wrong with planning ahead and thinking towards the future…

That brings me to Valentine’s Day gifts. Yes, we’ve got to deal with January first, but that’s miserable and I personally have never known a single exciting thing to ever come out of the month. We then get to February, which still isn’t great, but does offer a glimpse of some kind of happiness.

Valentine’s Day isn’t even really the important part; many people think it’s overrated and a waste of time, which is completely understandable. Although, if you’re reading this blog, you’re probably not one of those people.

The reason that I think it’s great is because it brings about the opportunity for Valentine’s Day gifts. Or, more specifically, the opportunity for gifts in the form of lingerie (which is where I come in). This isn’t me being materialistic, it’s just that I think showing some appreciation towards your partner, friend or self is something that should never be overlooked, and this is perfectly done through a good lingerie set.

I’m going to start with a little overview of Valentine’s Day, because I like to cover all of my bases. (Plus you might have landed on my page trying to find out what Valentine's Day is and I'm trying very hard to be a nicer person.)

When is Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day takes place on the 14th February every year. Unlike Pancake Day (my favourite holiday), Valentine’s Day is always on the same date.

What is Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love, inviting people to show their appreciation for either their partner and/or loved ones, often through giving cards, flowers and gifts. Valentine’s Day means something different to everyone, but the main thing is that it’s a day for a celebration of love and relationships.

If you’re wondering where Valentine’s Day actually originates from, it started as a Christian feast day honouring the martyr Saint Valentine. You’ll have to do some more research if you want to understand how that turned into Valentine’s Day as we know it, because I have more pressing matters to discuss (like the lingerie you should buy for Valentine’s Day gifts).

How Many Days Until Valentine’s Day?

Right now, it’s 53 days until Valentine’s Day. However, if you’re reading this any time after December 23rd 2022, it will be less than 53 days until Valentine’s Day.

What is the Best Gift for Valentine’s Day?

In case you hadn’t already got the message, I think that lingerie makes some of the best Valentine’s Day gifts. This is, however, completely down to personal preference, so there really isn’t a right or wrong answer to what makes the best gift for Valentine’s Day. 

The best gifts are always the ones with thought behind them, so whoever you’re buying for, you should be safe just as long as you’ve actually put some effort into it. Think about what you know they like, any inside jokes the two of you share or something that they’ve been talking about for ages.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her

Okay, you definitely get the hint. Lingerie makes the perfect present for any occasion. Let’s get to the recommendations…


First up, I want to point you in the direction of one of our newest collections, Hypnolove from Aubade. It’s available in two different colourways: Eclipse and Evergreen, both with gorgeous gold detailing and crystal diamantés. It features four different bras, three briefs and even a basque and suspender belt, so has everything you need for an outstanding lingerie set. 

Shop Hypnolove Half Cup Bra in Eclipse - £140

Shop Hypnolove Tanga - £75

Shop Hypnolove Suspender Belt - £95

Aubade is one of our more luxurious brands, which is why it’s got the price tag to go alongside it... Everything Aubade is completely worth it (you’re paying for quality and detail), but I know that this is definitely on the higher end of the scale and we all need options.

So, with price in mind, why not think about Temptress by Freya? The Cherry colourway is currently on sale and pairs perfectly with the brief options in Black. The classic red colour is just the right amount of sexy, with the black adding a fun contrast. The collection also features a suspender, giving you the option for a complete lingerie set. A fabulous option for some Valentine’s Day gifts if I do say so myself.

Shop Temptress T-Shirt Bra in Cherry - £22.95

Shop Temptress Short - £16

Shop Temptress Suspender - £22
