Valentine’s Gift Guide: Treat Yourself or Start Droppin’ Some Hints

We know how much stress Valentine’s day can be, but don’t remember what it’s all about. Valentine’s Day is a day of opportunity, to show the special someone in your life how much you really do appreciate them. Love can be shown in all forms, but a little gift never hurt nobody!

So no matter what your budget is, here’s our roundup of the best gifts to treat your loved one, or even yourself to.

To this day, everyone knows that flowers are one of the loveliest and simplest gestures of affection. Nothing quite says “I love you” like a dozen red roses. We love Bloom and Wild, their letterbox flowers quite literally fit through your letterbox, quite revolutionary in the world of flower delivery if you ask us! £38, Bloom and Wild.

The entire Daisy Jewellery range is beautiful – it’s hard to choose just one piece!

Estée Lalonde’s collection is our current favourite and is all mix and match. Start your collection with earrings for Valentine’s Day, then a bracelet for your birthday, and a necklace for Christmas. Voilá!
