  1. In the past I’ve relied on Fortnum & Mason for some gift hampers and they’ve always been very impressive.

    I’m sure that their Valentine’s Day Champagne Box will also live up to expectations.

    1. Yes, Craig… always a sound choice! Businesses don’t usually stick around for more than 300 years if they’re not getting things right for their customers!

  2. My dearly beloved is vegan and very diet aware. I think the Sparkling Wine Case from Drinkwell might even meet her demanding standards.

    1. I hope it lives up to expectations, Tom! There are a lot of ’empty calories’ when it comes to alcohol usually, so this is a great alternative option.

    2. My wife’s gone vegan too and looks very good on it. I haven’t gone vegan and still don’t look very good at all. At least these wines are a gift that we could enjoy together.

  3. I know that it’s not the most romantic of gifts but I would really appreciate one of those Helly Hansen mid-layers. Lately, there have been a few mornings when it’s been – 6 when I’ve bern walking the dog.

    1. I’ve got a whole outdoor wear wardrobe of Helly Hensen stuff and they are yet to let me down. Thoroughly recommend their gear, it always does the job.

    1. I feel like it’s so easy to please a woman on Valentine’s Day because we like so many things! But maybe the men in our lives need a list like this!

  4. I think the pendant could be the gift for my partner. I’d want to check with her first. I’ve sometimes given her jewellery which she’s never worn. I’m not that brave.

    1. I think those boots would be a win with my partner. I think I need to sleep on that one before I make a purchase. Oh and I also must check her size without getting spotted.

    2. Good luck with that, Darius! Unlike many of the other boots of this kind, the Gatcombe boots are fully waterproof all the way up to the knee which can be extremely useful.

  5. I’ve got my own laptop tray, using it now as I read in bed. I’m sure that my other half would appreciate one too, especially if I designed it for her. What more could a woman want for Valentine’s Day?

  6. That’s a lucky coincidence. You’ve just reminded me that my wife had dropped a subtle hint about getting a blow dry volumiser. Now I know what she was talking about and what to get.

  7. That Fortnum and Mason breakfast box would be the dream start to Valentine’s Day. After that the pressure would be on. What comes next? Private jet to Paris for lunch?

  8. There’s always something deliciously decadent about wrapping yourself in a luxurious dressing gown. All the top hotels know that. I’d be very happy with a gown for Valentine’s Day.

  9. My girlfriend loves houseplants but is away on business or long weekends so often that the plants often look sorry for themselves. The Urban Botanist would be the perfect problem-solving gift for her.

  10. My culinary skills are legendary. As they’re so bad. I think I’ll have to call on Dukeshill for the romantic meal for 2 to get me out of a hole on the 14th.

    1. I think you’re talking for a lot of us here. I’m going to turn to Dukeshill. I wouldn’t trust myself with a Valentine’s meal.

  11. We don’t usually do Valentine’s presents. I think the eternity ring would make for a great surprise. After all we have been married for a quarter of a century.

  12. The marketing for the Jean Paul Gaultier So Scandal is certainly out there. Then again my girlfriends into extravagant statement fragrances. I think this fragrance could be a great match for her extrovert character.

  13. There’s a huge diversity of gifts here. My partner is a very discerning lady though I hope to find something amongst all these suggestions for her.

  14. I can see the personalised map being an absolute winner. For so many of us are best memories are often intertwined with travel.

  15. Looking ahead to the next tricky days for us men are you planning to dine of these gift guides for Mother’s Day? It’s probably looming ahead towards the end of March.

    1. Don’t worry, Tom… we have already started compiling one for Mother’s Day! That will be a first for us this year, and we’ll look to do a piece both for Mother’s Day in the UK (27th March 2022), as well as Mother’s Day in the US (8th May 2022).

  16. I know that I’m leaving it late and that I need to get on with it but I think the heart travel charm could be the answer.

  17. Should not Valentines Day in the title have a possessive apostrophe? Most of the recommended gifts have the honour of a possessive apostrophe.

    1. It should, you are quite correct, Gerald! We had it right throughout the article, but slipped up with the title. Thank you for the correction – I know many reading will probably think this is all rather pedantic, but I’m a pendant myself so am happy to be corrected… off to put it right straight away!

  18. I’ve always looked for gifts that we can share for Valentine’s Day, so my contenders are the breakfast box, the meal and of course the wine.

  19. How things have changed! When we were first married all I got was a card. Then about 10 years ago I started to get some roses as well. Having read this selection, it’s time my husband moved up through the gears for Valentine’s Day.

  20. Great list of gift ideas for Valentine. My favorite (to give and to receive) is the sparkling wine case from Drinkwell. But a dinner invitation would be also nice.

  21. So many things that women will love! My favorite is the breakfast box from Fortnum & Mason. Everything looks yummy and pretty. The boots will be great as well.

  22. You got me at Egyptian Collection Luxury Towelling Dressing Gown. However, I am also intrigued at the personalized maps. This is a list I am forwarding to my mate soon so he can settle with what he can give me on V-day, haha!

  23. Such great ideas for celebrating Valentines Day. Any of these would be welcomed, especially the classics of chocolate, wine, flowers, jewelry and lingerie.

  24. I would gladly take any of these. But a special points from me would come from that HH jacket. I have had many clothes from them and they are so great. And the hair dryer is awesome. I have one.

  25. Ok, I’d be lying if I said there were only a few things on this list I’d love to get for Valentine’s Day! So many of them pulled at my heart strings (like the destination themed shadow-box) and appealed to my love of luxury indulgences.

    I would adore waking up with a tray of breakfast treats and champagne, beautiful flowers, and an assortment of decadent chocolates. Call me a traditionalist, but you sure know how to make girl feel special!

    Thanks for giving me some inspiration. I’ll definitely be ordering a several of these luxury gifts for myself and a few as gifts for others – even beyond Valentine’s Day.

  26. Very good list of Valentine’s day items for him/her. Each item is one of a kind and any one would appreciate to receive them.Petite ecosystem by Urban Botanist is very good.
