With Valentine’s Day coming up, it is time to think about a surprise for our loved ones. You want to make sure that your gift will be special and unique – but how do you find the perfect one? Well, we have made things easier for you as we have compiled a list of 25 amazing gifts for couples that are bound to touch your hearts.
But first, you need to find out what your partner likes. Most couples go through a phase where their partner thinks about gift giving differently, so if you are caught in the middle of that change, it will be difficult for you to choose a gift. The best way is to just sit down and talk with your significant other about your preferences. Or, if you don’t want to ruin the surprise, you can ask your partner innocent questions that would reveal clues as to which gift could be the perfect fit. For example: "What would you think about [insert here the thing you are considering gifting]?" Their answer should give you an idea about whether you are on the right track – so keep that in mind when shopping around!
Next, make sure that your gift will say something about you. It is a gift from you to them, so it should leave no doubts as to how much you care. If they are not expecting the gift, all the better – but even in case they know it is coming, try to add a personal touch to it. The possibilities are endless, and it all depends on your creativity!
With that being said, let's not waste any more time and see what is on the offer:
Valentine's Day Gift Guide.
25 Sweet and Thoughtful gifts for couples
1. A fruit basket with wine
There is nothing like a romantic dinner in front of the fireplace with good food and wine to create an intimate moment. But why not add a touch of mystery by hiding a message in one of the fruits? Just use natural markers such as berries or spices to write down romantic messages that will keep them guessing. You can even include chocolates or taffy with romantic messages in them.
2. A romantic dinner at restaurant
Dinner for two is always romantic! Make a reservation at one of the local fancy restaurants, wear something classy and have a pleasant and memorable evening together. Handing your partner, a romantic note stating that he/she has to cook dinner with you will definitely put a smile on their face. Just make sure not to add anything spicy (because after the dinner the evening itself might become spicier), and don't forget about dessert - it should be romantic too!
3. An escape room experience
Escape rooms are great fun but they take things to the next level when you can enjoy them with your romantic partner. If you are not familiar with the concept, escape rooms offer an immersive experience where participants need to solve puzzles and riddles to get out of a locked room. Use this opportunity to bond while getting out of a tricky situation in a safe environment. If you think about it – it is very romantic.
4. A romantic picnic
If you have a romantic night planned, why not start it with a romantic picnic? Pack your favorite foods such as strawberries and chocolates in a basket and head outside your city to enjoy them together! You can even hire a musician to add an extra romantic touch or pick up some firewood so you can have a romantic evening under the stars.

6. Chocolate tour
Chocolate is romantic no matter how or where you eat it but there are some places that are known for their chocolate production.

7. A romantic date at home
Create a romantic atmosphere by setting up romantic candles all around you while enjoying a romantic evening for two. If cooking is not one of your talents, consider hiring someone else to cook the best romantic meal for two this V-day allowing you both to sit back and enjoy some quiet time together over candlelight while sipping on wine (or whatever drink you fancy).
8. Retro video games
The romantic thing about retro video games is that they allow couples from all walks of life to enjoy them together regardless of age, gender or experience. If both of you love certain games, consider hosting a marathon at home where you can play until one of you wins!

Couples who love music can create a romantic playlist using songs that have special meaning for them, whether it relates to the lyrics or if it is because they danced to it at their wedding. You can share this gift through social media or burn each other CDs filled with your favorite songs so you can take them anywhere you go. The best part – this does not cost a dime!
18. A love letterbox
If you are looking for a special way to give them your heart on Valentine’s Day, consider creating a small “love letters” deposit box where both of you can leave romantic messages that only the other person will have access to.

19. Concert tickets

Even if they keep moaning about how lazy they seem to be, deep inside it is what they want to do – and everyone wants to be comfy during the cold season.
22. A love poem written just for them

23. Statement piece of jewellery your partner will cherish forever
A great gift idea is jewellery, as it can fit any budget and be personal.

And, of course, if you want to make a splash and impress your partner with an expensive gift, jewellery will provide you with this possibility as well.
24. A piece of wall art that reminds them of your love story
One of the best gifts you can give this Valentine’s is unique wall art that tells your partner how special they are to you. It could be a painting or just a simple drawing, but if done right it will surely bring smiles to their faces!
