Breaking out in hives over what to get your Valentine next week? We’ve put together a list of our favourite V day gifts to ease your shopping anxiety!
WATCH: LORD TIMEPIECES
This delicate watch from Lord Timepieces has an undeniably feminine and discrete design, is available in silver, gold and rose gold and comes at a reasonable price (so you can get her flowers, too).
£60 – £65, Lord Timepieces
LINGERIE: ADINA REAY
Whether raunchy or demure, consider the quality of the lingerie you’re buying. Red may be the shade of the occasion but we suggest Adina Reay’s Ava in blush rose or Fran in black for a classic yet sexy look. A delight for big-breasted ladies, the brand stocks sizes from 28DD to 36G! Tried and tested, we’re big fans.
Prices range from £40 – £250 Adina Reay
PERFUME: JO MALONE
For Valentine’s, Jo Malone has put together the Valentine’s Day Red Roses Floral box. The intoxicating aroma has notes of lemon, scarlet velvet rose and honeycomb. The Eau de Parfum will be presented in the classic black and crème box, nestled amongst freshly cut flowers! Made by British florist Philippa Craddock.
£130 Exclusive to Selfridges
CHOCOLATE: LADY GODIVA
Treat her to a divine experience with the three-tier Valentine’s chocolate gift tower from Lady Godiva or sample the flavours together with a bottle of champagne or a fine red. A guaranteed aphrodisiac.
