Valentine’s Day

It’s almost Valentine’s Day.

You can’t forget it, because it’s everywhere.
Signs in shop windows, gift guides in magazines and little red hearts everywhere.

Now I know there a few of you that are very anti-Vday, but listen up.
If you’re single, it’s the perfect excuse to either treat yourself to a night out with your girlfriends or consume a pint of ice cream guilt free.
If you’re loved up, it’s a day to show someone hey, you make me happy and I like sharing my world with you. 

If you’re stuck for ideas, I have a few varying in price and mushiness for your boo, girlfriend, best friend, and even your mum.

The Gift:

Chanel Red

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour £18
Everyone has a lovely lady in their life that deserves to have killer claws. My favourite is Rouge Noir, Number 18


Pierre Hermé Macarons £14-£22
Nothing says I love you like a box of decadent macarons.
Pop into Selfridges and customise your gift by selecting his or her favourite flavours.
A box of 7 macs are £14, or get the Valentine’s Day box Les Macarons de Saint-Valentin for £22.

I Love You Ring

Tiffany & Co. I Love You Ring £100
For the serious couple, say it with Tiffany’s.
No, not an engagement ring! Just an I love you ring, so she always knows you love her…even when you forget your anniversary.

Perfume Floris Bespoke Perfume £195
For this one, you’d have to really know the other person’s favourite scents in order to create their perfect perfume. But, I think that this is such a thoughtful gift.
Spend 90 minutes consulting with a Floris perfumer and choose from a range of scents to personalise a 100ml fragrance.

Massage Oil

Massage Oils £10
To tease and please, why not give a sensual back massage with Polynesian Massage Oil.

Hotel Chocolate

Chocolates £45
When it comes to chocolates, everyone knows that the bigger the box, the more you love them.

LingerieSomething sexy to spice up your night £20-£200
Take a cheeky peek at Agent Provocateur for some luxury lingerie or Gilly Hicks for a great deal on on some down undies.

Flower card

Flower Card £10-£20
Don’t get her flowers, they die.
Ok, she probably likes flowers. But instead of paying an extortionate price for roses on Valentine’s Day, how about a big bunch of her favourites. Or how about this neat flower card. Strange, but creative.


The Bacon Club £17-£30
Give the gift of bacon because let’s be honest, who doesn’t love bacon?
Remind your man how much you love him every month with a nice stack of meat.
The Bacon Club sends a 2 pack of British bacon for £17.50 or 4 pack for £29.77 will be delivered right to your door each month.

Batman cufflinks

Batman Cufflinks £16
For the inner nerd that manages spreadsheets by day and crime by night.
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na BATMAN!
(you’re welcome for now having that stuck in your head for the rest of the day)

Oil set

Vom Fass Customised Oil Sets
For the chef, pop into Selfridges for a Vom Fass customised oil set. You can choose from a selection of different bottles and sample which flavour oils you’d like to buy. Alternatively, order them online to be shipped to your door. If you’re doing this, I’d suggest the miniature oils and vinegars gift set which gives you a variety of 8 little bottles for £25.

Passport Holder

Leather Passport Covers £29 him / her
For the frequent flyer that loves a good travel accessory.

Destination Print

Personalised Destination Print £38
For the traveling couple, this awesome print of destinations you’ve been, or plan on going. It’s a sweet way of encapsulating memories without putting all your vacation photos on display.

The Date:
Now if your girlfriend / friend / boyfriend / mum is anything like me, the way to their heart is through their stomach.


For an easy, romantic night in, why not grab some pre-made dough and all his or her favourite pizza toppings and spend the evening making your own pizzas. Share them cuddled up watching an action rom-com movie.

Kitchen TableFor the gourmet foodie, surprise them with seats at Bubbledog’s Kitchen Table. Check their twitter feed here for seats available and reservations.
There are limited seats left for Valentine’s Night – email to reserve your spot.

Bubble Food Valentine

If you don’t want to battle for reservations, you could pull out all the stops and have molecular gastronomy created right in your very own kitchen.
Bubble Food will bring molecular fine dining to you with liquid nitrogen cocktails, deconstructed canapés, floating mains, and a Valentine’s Day dessert of champagne caviar sabayon with bitter chocolate crispy strawberry and liquid cherries.
No true foodie could turn down this love potion.
Contact them to arrange your showstopper evening here.

Complete your gift with a thoughtful, meaningful Valentine. I’ve attached a few for inspiration.Valentine

Valentine Valentine

I hope this V-day fills you with lots of love and chocolates whatever you do.
But mostly chocolates.
