The most romantic day of the year, well at least in the retail calendar, is upon us. Whether we find it overrated or not, it is still a lovely gesture to surprise your loved one with a Valentine’s gift. And what a lovely excuse for a bit of a shopping spree?
So if you’re still hesitating on a purchase, consider the following and sneak the wish-list into your partner’s pocket.
This isn’t perhaps such an obvious choice for this occasion, however if your Valentine is an avid foodie, you are in for a treat. Spoil someone special with an indulgent box of atelier chocolates. Beautifully, packaged, handmade or organic, this delicious gift should melt the heart away. A famous chocolatier Charbonel et Walker, who is based at the Royal Arcade on Old Bond Street in London, holds the Royal Warrant as manufacturers of chocolate to her Majesty The Queen…impressive indeed. Their Sea Salt Caramel Truffles will please even the savoury taste lovers.
Fine quality beverages make an elegant unisex present. Wine or champagne seem like a good and easy choice unless your Valentine is a wine connoisseur. Why don’t you try something a little different? Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb & Ginger Liqueur is a delicious distraction. Infused with pure rhubarb and ginger, this small batch, warming liqueur is a deliciously sweet drink with a tart twist, zesty aroma of the finest juniper berries and spicy to taste.
JEWELLERY & ACCESSORIES
Elegantly expensive, but as they say…’diamonds are a girls’ best friend’. Necklaces & pendants, bangles & bracelets, earrings or watches. What artillery to flash. It may be from Tiffany’s, but it may also be from NotOnTheHighStreet.com, where a selection of unique, personalized gifts are widely available.
With perfume and fragrance being a sensual and grand option, why not try something a little bit leftfield. Neal’s Yard Remedies are made in Britain, organic, no parabens’ products and have amazing aromatherapeutic qualities. They simply smell out of this world.
Still unsure? Remember that a beautiful bunch of flowers never fails to impress.
