This is in fact a pretty generic gift and one that is very popular, because it can be made unique by adding some special photographs of memorable moments you’ve enjoyed together. Why not take the opportunity to book a boudoir photo shoot with a professional photographers so you can include some really intimate snaps for his eyes only. Include a USB cable and the instructions so he can continue to add more images in the coming years.

A monogrammed bathrobe for your Valentine
Bathrobes can be a very intimate gift for your loved one, and will keep him warm and comfortable when he steps out of the shower. A black or red one will be in keeping with traditional Valentine colours and the pocket can be embroidered with his initials. Why not give yourself a matching bathrobe so you can share the luxury together?

A trio of skincare essentials
This is the perfect gift for the special man in your life, if he’s proud of his appearance. It includes shaving cream, skin cleanser and men’s moisturiser. Specially formulated for men’s skin and blended using masculine and earthy scents and essential oils. All are designed to leave his skin feeling silky smooth and soft.

A wooden puzzle that explains why you love him
Think of one special reason why you love him so and have it made into a wooden puzzle. This gift will make a beautiful personalised love token for the man of your dreams and give you the opportunity to tell him why he’s so special.

Valentine’s Day is one day in the year when you get to express your feelings for a certain someone. But not everyone is lucky enough to have someone to share their life with. Let’s look at some ideas for those of you who are single.

Unique Valentine’s Day gift ideas for those that are single

Treat yourself to a pamper day – There aren’t many things that will make you feel more special than a pamper day. Time to give yourself some royal treatment. Just because you’re on your own it doesn’t mean you’re any less special than those who are part of a couple. Time to feel like a prince or princess, even if it’s only for one day.

Get in touch with other singles – We bet you’ve got some single friends or family members that would really appreciate a phone call or at the very least a text message or post on Facebook. Time to let others know how much they mean to you, even if it makes you feel a bit mushy. If you’d rather put your feelings down on paper then pop out and buy some Valentine’s greetings cards and get them in the post.

Volunteer your services – No matter how alone you might be feeling, we bet there’s someone far less fortunate than you. Deliver some flowers to your local old folks home and bring a smile to the faces of some sweet old ladies and men. Or you could volunteer at the local homeless shelter or make a donation to one of the many charities.

Time to finish up with some unique Valentine’s Day ideas for the man in your life.
