That time of year is fast approaching whereby you need to spoil that special someone in your life. But since they say that love begins with you, we’ve put together an alternative Valentine’s Day gift guide that not only sparks joy for the lady, but brings just as much pleasure to the gentleman.
Bluetooth Stereo Headphones by Hër
There aren’t many couples that enjoy the same music, at least not all the time, so buy your ears a treat and free the apartment of Taylor Swift once and for all. These super stylish Hër headphones include a built-microphone so she can even answer calls without needing to touch her phone, and feature up to 23-hours talk time or 21-hours playback time before needing a charge. They’re so comfortable (thanks to soft padding) that she’ll be glued to them for hours on end while you take over the lounge speakers.
Velvetiser by Hotel Chocolat
When the AC is on too high and you’re both in the mood for a barista-style hot chocolate, there’s no need to run downstairs thanks to the Velvertiser. It takes just two-and-a-half minutes; add your choice of milk and a sachet of Hotel Chocolat flavors, and you have the perfect cup to snuggle up with in front of a movie. The system is super easy to clean – just rinse to make your next cup, or wet sponge wash when done completely.
Personalised Towels by Personally Presented
