Valentine's Day - Unusual Gift Ideas

Valentines Day Gift Ideas For Him & HerThere are many interesting facts to Valentine’s Day such as Valentine being the patron saint of beekeepers and epilepsy – we didn’t see that one coming either! However, we digress.

Many of you will exchange Valentine cards, gifts or flowers to that special someone in your life. It is the one time in the year (actually we discovered it isn’t – but that’s for the interesting fact link) where you can showcase your romantic side with a gift or surprise. More often people have a tendency to stay with what they know without realizing that something simple can be more magical and definitely more memorable.

Chillistick has over the years adopted a much-said tag line … “dry ice is not just for Halloween”. It is important for people who are not as familiar with dry ice as ourselves to avoid looking at dry ice for spooky effects or witch’s cauldrons and wizardry potions. Hopefully more articles like this can showcase the absolute genius of dry ice and just how effective it can be for almost any occasion and application.

We often speak to our customers and provide advice on the best uses during this time. Ever heard the expression “think out of the box?” Valentines Day 2018 we helped a very nervous customer create a magical moment - the ring was presented in a fabulous box of dry ice. On opening a lovely cloud of fog surrounded the ring - we were told it was a magical moment and of course who could then say no?

Thoughtful Gift Ideas This Valentines 

The real amazing thing here is the gift of surprise - the reality is that buying dry ice on-line, having it delivered and adding water is quite simple - one of the least stressful ways to create a wow factor. Makes you look great whilst everyone else  thought chocolates would be a good idea!

OK so maybe you are in a relationship not quite at that level or perhaps already married but still would like to show how different you can be? Well how about serving a bottle of champagne in a cloud of dry ice – our Ice Cloud is great for this. Not into champagne? How about a signature dry ice cocktail – you can make this at home with a small pack of ice and a chillistick – simple. Perhaps you fancy a whisky as a nightcap…. The angel’s share is definitely something we recommend. Rather than having a cocktail the cloud effect in a whisky or brandy glass is something rather different and the aroma will come through which again is another one of those life experiences to make you smile and that’s definitely what Valentine’s Day is all about.

If you would like to share your valentine moments with us we would love to hear from you and share your photo’s.
