I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to see any roses or chocolates on Valentines Day. This may sound awfully bah humbug of me but I’m looking for more thought and less predictability from my other half. I’ll be doing the same for him after all!
If you relate, read on for my round up to give you oodles of inspiration for original Valentines Day gift ideas…
Brighton-based Designers Makers, DesignSoar and Claudia Made This do hearts yes, but in the coolest possible ways.
The Orange Heart Earrings, £4 are made from polymer clay and I love the alternative colours to the usual pinks. There are many more heart earrings and lots of other styles available in their shop:
TOPSHOP at Churchill Square has plenty of novelty gifts, lingerie and shoes.
For the men – TOPMAN is brimming with sharp shirts and cool cufflinks. I, however, have my eye on this cute t-shirt, Love Is My Drug Tee by Goldie, £28. If you’re single and ready to mingle or want to cheer up a friend who is with the wrong guy, get the Dump Him Tee by Tee and Cake, £22.
Every Valentines beer bouquet contains a handpicked selection of real ale, craft beer and craft lager from some of the UK’s most exciting small and independent breweries, plus a bar of chocolate to wash it all down with. Both available at Not On The High Street’s website.
