Another year, another Valentine’s Day around the corner. While this is an exciting occasion for many, there are plenty who dread cheesy romance - especially if you’re out of thoughtful and meaningful gift ideas, with the holiday just a few days away.

If you find traditional romantic gifts a little overdone, we’ve got a few ideas that will help you nail a gift that’s not just exciting but entirely out of the ordinary too.

Some of these are also excellent if you’ve decided to celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day - it’s a great opportunity to honour a lifelong commitment to the one person you can truly count on: Yourself. 

Now of course many SendGold customers have already send the gift of gold this year - the perfect last minute gift - with their custom message and unique virtual gift card. But if you still need other ideas, here is a list we've come up with:

An Amazon gift card

Valentine’s gift-giving can be stressful because no matter how well you know someone, there may be certain things they don’t share with you - like their secret obsession with miniature Disney figurines, for instance.

Regardless of what they’re not telling you, Amazon gift cards are the perfect Valentine’s Day gift because you’re basically just sponsoring a shopping spree on one of the biggest e-commerce marketplaces on the internet. No biggie. 

A smart home assistant

Smart homes are all the rage these days and if you’re looking for a gift that will add real value to your partner’s (or your) life, a smart home assistant is a surefire choice.

Not only can these order you an Uber, place your go-to order on the Domino’s app, and wake you up on time, but soon, you will be able to have entire conversations with sophisticated assistants like Alexa.

The best part about buying one of these devices is that they’re available at different price points and come with incredible features - did you know that they can even double as powerful Bluetooth speakers?

Digital gold

They say diamonds are forever but few naturally-occurring commodities like gold have retained value over thousands of years and continue to be highly relevant, high-value investments.

If you want to be more creative than simply gifting your partner a gold chain or any type of gold jewellery, digital gold is a great way to make an investment on behalf of your loved one this Valentine’s Day - it doesn’t get any more non-romantic, yet deeply meaningful, than that!

Digital gold also happens to be a great gift to give yourself - one that will bail you out on a rainy day, especially given that gold only continues to become more scarce and is increasing in value.

On our app, SendGold, you can not just buy and wrap up your gift in exciting Valentine’s Day-inspired gift wrap, but you can also sell your gold just as instantly as you buy it!

A weighted blanket

Another extremely popular (and non-romantic) gift idea is the weighted blanket that has set the internet ablaze with its proven benefits for anxiety and sleep.

Basically, these fluffy duvets, built with innovative cooling technology, are weighted, which means that when you cover yourself in them, there’s a relaxing pressure placed wherever your body is covered.

Proven to improve sleep, these blankets can be bought at different weights for people of different ages, tailoring the weight of the blanket with the bodyweight of the person it’s bought for.

Blue-light-blocking glasses

If you or your partner are all about the latest tech goodies up for grabs, blue-light-blocking glasses are a high-tech way to commemorate one of the most romantic days of the year.

These are perfect for people who spend all day in front of a computer or peering at their smartphones (basically, all of us). The glasses filter harmful blue light that disrupts the body’s Circadian Rhythm, which ultimately throws your sleep cycle off-balance.

Celebrate Valentine’s day with fun gift ideas that are meaningful and non-romantic

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be celebrated the way society demands you to. On the 14th of February, gift your special someone something that’s not a framed photo, a spa treatment or jewellery and actually make them feel special with something that’s a little different.

If it’s just you this Valentine’s Day, our gift ideas are still amazing - you just get to enjoy all the benefits yourself. Head to SendGold to begin your Valentine’s Day shopping - gold is a gift that keeps giving.

She spent nine months lugging you around wherever she went, first as a lump of cells, then later as a fully formed human waiting impatiently to come out. Of course, you didn’t make that easy, kicking her belly from the inside and waking her up in the middle of the night. Well, you did the latter even after coming out, and maybe the former as well when you didn’t get your favourite dessert after lunch, or that birthday present you really wanted.

Oh, but those were just a few slip-ups. She never let you go to bed hungry, made sure you were warm and cosy during winter and light and fresh during warm summer nights, tucking you in right after the 200th retelling of Hansel & Gretel. She picked you up every time you fell off while learning to ride a bike and made sure those cuts and bruises never got infected. You surely got ice cream that day as a treat to forget the pain, not that it hurt too much, anyway. She probably wanted to make up for the time you didn’t get your favourite dessert or that silly birthday present.

Those school years were impeccably amazing for you: packed school lunches, clean clothes, and new shoes. If you didn’t take the school bus, you got picked up precisely on the dot. Sometimes, your homework was miraculously completed the morning of the deadline, even though you didn’t touch it after storming into the house after school.

When times got tough, she made life easier. The principal got a stern talking to when that schoolyard bully made the thirty-minute break a living hell, and the other parents as well if they were not so lucky. You got an extra hour of TV after that, just so you slept a little quicker, and in the morning you had pancakes with chocolate syrup, starting the day off on a high.

You definitely notice these things and are immensely grateful. You love her, but your actions begin to suggest otherwise. Those teenage years are the first indicator, late nights, forgetting curfews, skipping dinner to roam around with your friends. The list goes on. A report card of your transgressions would go on for pages, but it’s still fine. You’re around, living under the same roof so everyone gets to see each other daily, even if you’re locked up in your room every Sunday from dawn till dusk.

Then the harder times roll in when more than a few miles get in the way. You go off to college to get that fancy-sounding degree, but you still need a phone call back home to make sure your dinner doesn’t turn into an inedible mess. A care package was always around the corner when you needed it. Boxes of instant noodles, school supplies, and extra pocket money when your wallet was as light as a feather.

After the first year, though, the missed calls pile up. Drinks on Friday and Saturday nights, hangovers on Sundays till the sun sets, then those crammed study sessions in the library and exams the day after. You eventually have a lengthy conversation when it’s time for graduation, and she drives all the way for your special moment. It’s picture-perfect, but not the full story.

Longer spells of absences follow as you jump from one job to the next, hitting hard times as life seems to fall apart. She’s always there as a shoulder to cry on when your plans go awry, and you needed to access an eternal fountain of hope and optimism. You lose friends and co-workers with every snag, but not her.

Things eventually do get better. You land a promotion, find someone special, and after countless hours and days together, you end up tying the knot. The wedding’s a big success and married life after that, too.

She’s there for every great moment and every awful one. When you move into your first home. When you hit a hiccup in your marriage. When the first grandson is on the way. When an untimely tragedy strikes. She’s always there.

You don’t have to ask or shout or scream for help. She just knows. You may have kept your end of the bargain and been there for her as well, but you know it’s not enough. There’s no repaying her, no matter how much you try. You know it deep down.

Simple gestures might have decent beginnings. You can go with a bouquet of flowers or even a box of chocolates delivered every other week by FedEx. But how long will they last?

This Mother’s Day, celebrate the women in our lives turning every moment, both good and bad, into a golden one. Nothing under the skies will ever make it up, but a gift of gold is a decent place to start.
