If the date itself hasn’t already clued you in, then the proliferation of hearts, chocolates and roses that adorn every shop’s checkout is sure to have reminded you that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.
If you have a freelancer in your life, or you’re one yourself, you will know that it takes something a little different to get excited about this cheesiest of celebrations. If you want to show your freelancer some love and affection, and get them a gift that appeals to their unique sense of style, then check out our run down of five of the best Valentine’s gifts for the freelancer in your life.
For the Gourmet Freelancer
The Molecular Gastronomy Kit is perfect if your freelancer is a natural born entertainer. Say goodbye to tired, dog-eared copies of traditional recipe books and introduce something a little different to their Friday night dinner. Including a DVD of 50 recipes and gadgets galore to create Heston Blumenthal worthy gastronomic experiments, this is the perfect gift for the creative and the resolutely individual.
For the Gadgeteer Freelancer
Does your freelancer love their smartphone? Always looking at their screen? We don’t blame them – smartphones are taking over the world, with television streaming sites such as Netflix available on your phone. The Smartphone Projector allows everyone to share what’s on screen. A great little DIY project, all you need is some glue and then you’ll be ready to have a movie night courtesy of your smartphone!
For the Green Fingered Freelancer
If your freelancer is blessed with green fingers but is a little short on outdoor space then this grapevine in a box is the perfect way to indulge their horticultural side while giving their home office a splash of green…plus the promise of future wine is always a welcome gift!
For the Image Conscious Freelancer
One of the many great benefits of freelancing is not having to worry about office policies on facial hair. If your freelancer prides themselves on their stellar beard then a kit to take tip top care of their facial hair would be perfect!
For the Experimental Freelancer
The perfect blend of mixology and relaxation, if you have an engineer on your hands who loves to find out how things work, the Artisan Gin Makers Kit will allow them to quench their thirst for knowledge while also quenching their actual thirst at the end of the working week.
So there you go! With only a few days to go, hopefully our blog has helped you to find a way to make Valentine’s a little quirkier for the freelancer in your life.
