Valentine’s Day gifts & delivery

Got a last minute gift to send this Valentine’s Day? Or just want to shake things up a little? Then we have some alternatives to the normal Valentine’s Day rigmarole.

Hide and Seek

Valentine's Gift

No matter what the gift prolong the surprise. Go the extra mile hide the gift and make hand written clues to help find it. Even if you did forget and got something last minute no one will ever know.

Unusual Vehicle 

ASTON MARTIN

Looking for a different way to deliver your gift? How about hiring a super car, limo, horse drawn carriage or an ice cream van! This is like a gift in itself and the experience will be unforgettable.

Deliver it Personally

PERSONAL DELIVERY

If you don’t live together then delivering a gift personally is a nice touch, showing you’re making a real effort. If you do live together then getting Brad Pitt to deliver the gift may be better received.

Celebrity

A little farfetched but apparently it’s what people want. In 2015 a delivery firm conducted a study asking UK online consumers which celebrity they’d most like to deliver their Valentine’s Day gift.

Brad Pitt, Barack Obama, Leonardo Dicaprio and Stephen Fry were amongst some of the most popular celebrity couriers. But they may cost a little more than a professional courier.

Gifts with a Courier Service

Who says bouquets have to be made of flowers? Last minute gifts from the local corner shop can be made to look much more exciting with these DIY gift ideas. 

All you need is;

  •  Chocolate bars/treats

And to add that special touch, send it by courier so it looks like you sent it days ago. Give it a go you'll have them fooled into thinking you're an old romantic!
