Romantic Gifts for your loved one


Posted on January 28th, 2016 by Rachel Jackson

Anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, Birthdays…there’s no end of occasions where you need to don your thinking cap and dream up some excellent gift ideas for your partner.

Sometimes it’s tough to come up with great gifts again and again but the good news is that with the wealth of ideas, experiences and products out there, you’re sure to find something that your partner will love with a bit of research.

What’s even better is that with TheGivingMachine, you can contribute to a local charity or cause that is close to your partner’s heart at the same time. Here are a few gift ideas for the ‘him’ or ‘her’ in your life.

For Her


Everybody loves flowers and you could buy your partner a whole year’s worth! Not at the same time, as that’d be a bit of a mess, but every month your partner could receive a bouquet of beautiful flowers that reflect the seasons and show how much you care.

This is a gift that keeps on giving and will put a smile on your partner’s face throughout the year.




Spa breaks are the perfect way to show your partner that you appreciate them having to put up with you all of the time. A bit of rest and relaxation can work wonders and everybody deserves a break and a chance to be pampered and truly indulge themselves. Giving someone a gift that’s an experience can be a nice change from a typical present and shows some extra thought.

Afternoon tea is all the rage, but what about going for afternoon tea with a difference? Tuck in to some delicious afternoon tea at the London Hilton Green Park, including scrumptious scones, cakes, sandwiches a choice of different tea or even something a bit fizzier! Then you can take your partner all the way to the top of the world famous Shard; at 800ft up, it’s sure to be one of the most picturesque places to gaze across London from and it’s a gift that your partner will remember for a long time.




One of the most popular drinks from the last couple of years has been Prosecco and it’s easy to see why. It’s fruity, fragrant and a bit more fun than champagne. Buy your partner some prosecco with a difference in a classic, golden bottle that she definitely won’t want to throw away in the recycling afterwards. It’s the perfect gift to make a special occasion a bit more special.


For Him

Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a beard grooming set! Help your partner to keep his beard in good nick by providing him with a package full of products that’ll give his beard that little something extra. Beard soap, beard balm/oil, moustache wax and a beard comb are all part of the beard-tastic bundle that won’t disappoint.



If your partner is into his beer drinking, the next best thing is helping him make his own. A home-brewing kit might sound like something that won’t fit in your kitchen, but you can pick up small, reasonably priced kits that can help your partner make up to 40 pints of his own beer. He’ll receive all of the equipment and ingredients he needs to brew the perfect pint.

Fitness is a big part of some men’s lives and a FitBit Fitness Band is a great way to track general health and wellbeing. It’s stylish, sophisticated and subtle and can provide statistics on your partner’s daily routine. FitBit bands can track the amount of steps someone takes in a day and their overall calorie burning total. It can monitor heart-rates, sleeping patterns and provides an overall picture of what areas of someone’s health can be improved. Results can be tracked through an app and online, so your partner can take control of their routine.



Buying your partner a meat thermometer might not spring to mind as the most romantic of gifts but cooking a steak is a fine art and it’s the little things that count, right? The thermometer and timer can be used when cooking any meat or poultry and will help him to cook you lovely, romantic meals. Everyone’s a winner!

We hope that this has filled you with some often much needed inspiration when treating that special someone in your life.
