A new iron or vacuum may not go down well as a romantic gift. Even if your household needs a new one, no one is going to get too excited at unwrapping a cleaning appliance on Valentine’s Day. However there are plenty of appliances that do make great gifts for the other half.
To help you choose the perfect gift for your Valentine this year we’ve put together some of our favourites.
A spiralizer makes eating your five a day more fun, which can only be a good thing. Pop hard vegetables or fruit like apples or courgettes into the machine and they will come out perfectly sliced into spirals. If you need spiralizer recipes the internet is awash with them. A quite internet search and you’ll have an abundance of delicious spiralizer ideas to try.
If your partner enjoys healthy eating, a blender with a build in bottle is a really easy and convenient way to enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables. There are a whole range of these appliances that let you easily make a daily smoothie, protein shake or fruit slushie with minimal washing up. Just attach the bottle to the blending part of the appliance and blend. Then remove the bottle and screw the lid onto it. It really is as easy as that.
A Coffee Grinder
True coffee connoisseurs prefer coffee made with ground beans, but from the moment beans are ground they start to lose their flavour. Let nothing compromise the taste of your love’s favourite beverage. A coffee bean grinder will let them enjoy the most rich intense flavours and can also be used to grind nuts or spices.
A Deep Fat Fryer
Healthy eating is all well and good, but sadly most really indulgent foods tend to be on the less healthy end of the food scale. Indulging now and then is no bad thing. Let your Valentine enjoy homemade chips, tempura, samosas or even fruit fritters with a deep fat fryer. Cooking deep fried food using a chip pan can be dangerous as the pan is liable to spit, so a deep fat fryer is safer too.
A Personal Care Appliance
Every morning when we get up and start the day and have to spend a fair amount of time getting ready so that we look (at least somewhat) presentable. Personal care appliances like hair straighteners or shavers make the getting ready process quicker and easier. Give your loved one the extremely valuable gift of more free time with a personal care gadget to make their mornings run more smoothly.
As well as gifts for the love of your life, whilst Cupid’s arrow is firing, show your appliances a little love this time of year too. See our article for top appliance maintenance tips. There’s still time to go until the big day, so plenty of time to treat both your Valentine and your household appliances.
