Fall in love with Valentine’s Day shopping!
It's February - officially the month of love. Originally celebrated on 15th February as a fertility festival, Pope Gelasius I declared 14th February to be St Valentine’s Day around the year 496.
Having been around for so long, you might think that buying Valentine's gifts for loved ones was second nature. However, as many of us will know from past experience, this isn't always the case! The wrong gift or forgetting to buy a gift altogether can really dampen a romantic evening!
To provide a little helping hand to ensure your loved one is happy with their Valentine's Day gift this year, we've compiled a list of the top gifts to purchase and the websites to buy them from in the UK. Remember, just because a website doesn't offer international delivery, that doesn't mean you can't purchase from it. Using our parcel forwarding service, you can buy from the UK, have your parcel shipped to our UK address, then we will send it in to you. So there's no excuses!!
If your loved one has a sweet tooth, you simply can't go wrong with a chocolate gift from Hotel Chocolat. This UK based chocolate 'boutique' has won countless awards and is a brilliant 'go to' option for a special treat for that special somebody. With several choices of boxes of chocolates alongside Valentine's themed chocolate slabs and hampers, you'll be spoiled for choice. There's even a chocolate dipping experience gift set - the perfect accompaniment for a quiet night in for two!
There's no greater a romantic gesture than a proposal, which makes Valentine's Day a great choice to pop the question. UK retailers including Goldsmiths, Ernest Jones and Boodles all have a great selection of engagement rings online.
Even if you're not popping the question, jewellery is an ever-popular choice. There is a beautiful selection of silver jewellery pieces all at 25% off on Silver Jewellery's website, or for something a bit more sparkly, you can't go wrong with Swarovski.
It may not be the most inventive of Valentine's gift ideas, but that doesn't mean it isn’t a good one! From classic red roses to bouquets in hues of pinks, purples, pastels and yellows, Marks and Spencer have Valentine's Day flowers sewn up. There are even a couple of early bird pre-order offers available - but you'll have to be quick!
Synonymous with adding some spice to your bedroom, a gift from Ann Summers rarely leaves much to the imagination! The company's lingerie, nightwear, toys and gifts are hugely popular here in the UK and amongst our international customers.
