Valentine’s Day is approaching and we say it every year, but instead of opting for the same old boring flowers or chocolates, why not be a little more thoughtful?
When you consider that a bunch of roses are going to set you back around twenty quid, you may as well put your money to good use elsewhere.
If you need inspiration, worry not, we’ve come up with some cracking Valentine’s Day presents, and all under a score.
Definitely a gift for a partner with a sense of humour. This is a ceramic mug that has a print of a red rose on the side, to remind your loved one that a bunch of roses from the garage just won’t cut it. We like it as it is a nice big size, perfect for your morning cuppa. Also available in white.
If your loved one already has a Radley designer handbag, this keyring will go nicely with it, and best of all, she’ll know how much you spent on her for Valentine’s Day!
If you cannot afford Jo Malone candles (and let’s face it, who can?), this range from Linea are a great alternative. Loads of different scents including wild fig, tuberose and fresh ginger.
Beautifully bound in vegan leather, these journals contain 192 blank pages for your loved one’s musings. You also get a lovely pen and reader reviews state that the quality of the binding and paper is outstanding.
We love this because it is delicate but not overly slushy with tons of hearts all over it. Buy it if your partner is a bit of a tomboy but still loves the fancier things in life.
A pair of designer leather gloves? Yes please! And why not for Valentine’s day? These come in a range of colours, including grey and tan. Available in these sizes – S, M and L.
Recreate a spa day for your missus, or mister, with these DIY hot stones therapy packs. Complete with stones, instructions and everything else needed to create the mood, including a candle and body oil.
A quick heads up fellas, ladies love this sort of stuff, your name and theirs, intertwined like you used to do at school. Comes all ready to be framed.
100% silk, this beautiful scarf has prints of butterfly wings that on first glance look like leaves, until you get closer and see the intricate detailing. Perfect for any season and a must for those who love butterflies (ahem, thank you!)
This is a gorgeous silk wrap that features a pretty floral print all over and ties at the waist. Comes in five sizes, 8-10, 12-14, 16-18, 20-22 and 24-26.
