Bet you didn’t see this one coming – Valentine’s Day is almost here! Shades of red and pink are starting to appear in shop windows and dinner deals for two are popping up everywhere you look!

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for that special someone, we’ve got gift ideas galore that will be sure to get you into the good books (for a while at least!)

Gifts for Her

Anything that sparkles or smells (or tastes!) delicious is sure to do the trick! Men of the world – if you’re shopping for the lucky lady in your life my top tip would be to find a lovely sales assistant in store and don’t be afraid to ask for a hand to find something special.


What girl doesn’t dream of jewellery and perfume on Valentines Day?! These classics are sure to please! If you’re opting for jewellery – have a sneak peak at what she already has so you get an idea of what her tastes are. If you’re not sure – keep it simple, easy to wear and classic. If you want to make it super personal, add an engraved message to the piece – that will be sure to make her smile!


If she’s a lover of beautiful words there’s a huge range of books available full of romantic love stories and uplifting quotes. Or, perhaps you could pen some words from the heart yourself!


Don’t worry ladies, he has good taste – he chose you afterall!

Gifts for Him

If you’re struggling to buy for him – cologne is always a great option! Scope out his usual, and get him a top up or pick out something new that you think he might like to mix things up a little. There are literally hundreds to choose from so spend some time testing out a few scents and pick a favourite or even opt for a mini set with a variety of different scents that he can switch between.


If food is the way to his heart, chocolates are the answer! Pick out some beautiful handcrafted chocolates and pop them together with a sweet card, or a nice block with a romantic theme to it.


Add a bit of “bling” to his everyday outfits with a classic piece of jewellery – you can’t go past a good dress watch!

If presents aren’t your thing keep it simple with some quality time together – pop out for a nice romantic dinner, a quiet walk or a night out at the movies! Enjoy, and cheers to love!
