Valentines Day Survival Kit Part 1: For Her

Monday, 4th February, 2013


It is Valentines day next week, so I have put together a survival guide to get your through the day. If you are struggling to find something for your girl, or you’re a ‘typical guy’, then you may find this useful.

The inexpensive gifts

Flowers – Aldi are running a promotion and offering a dozen red roses for only £5! (available from 11th February) Get your girl some flowers, she’ll love them and not know how cheap you really are :mrgreen:

If she is impressed with the flowers, then you might need the next item, condoms. Durex have a range of condoms, including their thin feel which RRP at £8.99 for a pack. If you really want to use these then you probably need a couple of other items before hand 😉

Music – How can she say no to the Spice Girls Greatest Hits or the Girls Aloud album: TEN. So many hits on both of these albums, pop perfection, ballads, party bangers and more. These will cost around £7 each on CD.

Chocolates -Forrest Gump said life was like a box of chocolates. You can buy the Lindt heart box, everyone adores Lindt by Lindor chocolates, I LOVE them, they are amazingly nice! They are around £6 for a handful of chocolates. If you want something a bit more classy, then go for the Charbonnel et Walker chocolate truffles. A pack of 3 in a heart box costs around £4, not the cheapest thing in the world!

Films – Have a cosy night in, watch a film or two. Why not get Valentines Day or New Years Eve. Pure girly chic flicks, around £20 for both.

Make a meal – If you are feeling adventurous then you could make a meal, I prefer spaghetti bolognese, it’s really easy to make. She’ll love you have went to some trouble to make a meal just for her 😉

A bit more expensive…

Champagne – I am a champagne lover, and this one is a bit more selfish, because it’s to share 😀 Make it a bit girly, you can get pink champagne and get a nice presentation box or case. Pictured above I have chosen pink Bollinger (Rosé) which comes with a pink cooler. It looks pretty nice and costs £60 from John Lewis.

Perfume – It’s usually a home run, just make sure you get something which she likes! I have picked out Dolce & Gabbana Femme, a classic scent. This costs around £35.

And there you have it, the Valentines Day survival kit. The key to getting or keeping your girlfriend…until next year at least 😉
