V Day: The Deliberations

Whether the very thought of dreaming up the perfect Valentine’s gift brings you out in a sweat – or you’re simply wondering how to play things this year –
coming up with the perfect gift year in year out can be a tricky affair… But here we hope to banish those feelings of dread and doubt and give you a hint of divine #Giftspiration.

An expression of floral magnitude


Let’s face it – there’s barely a girl in the land that doesn’t appreciate flowers. Whether you go for the ultimate declaration of love with a dozen… or even a hundred red roses or a simple bouquet of her favourite blooms, you’re sure to put a smile on her face. Couple it with a ‘Love Actually’ moment… and she’ll well… Love you… actually.



Check out Debenhams  for their great choice of blooms.


Something sentimental

When it comes to Valentine’s, you can’t beat a bit of bling… so if you typically shy away from this sort of thing, perhaps it’s time to take heed? There’s no pressure to seriously splash the cash – after all it’s the thought that counts right? And no… we’re not suggesting you put a ring on it either… but hey, every girl loves a bit of sparkle don’t they? Whether you add a little personal charm to her Pandora collection or opt for a timeless classic at Carter’s, you’re sure to melt her heart. For him, a new watch will ensure he thinks of you (at least a little bit) from time to time…


The novelty factor


If you’re a bit of a comedy cupid or simply don’t take the whole V:Day thing too seriously, a gift that cracks a smile or even a proper giggle can be the perfect solution.


Quality time together


It’s that age-old conundrum – what do you get someone who has it all? Our answer is simple: Time. If you struggle for quality time with your other half, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to drop everything. Keep it simple with a meal in The Vaults or take it up a notch with a must-see movie at The Light. If your aspirations are really flying high then splash out on a city break or weekend in the sun at Thomson.
