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
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.
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
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.
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
These days most online retailers will offer a 24 hour delivery service. Meaning you can send flowers, hampers, cards and much more within 1 day. All that’s left for you to do is choose the gift. There's also help with this these days, with special Valentine’s Day offers and plenty of blogs.
