...mailable Valentine's Gifts
“Are you away from a loved one this Valentine's Day? Or does shopping bring you out in a sweat? Whatever your reason, find the perfect gift for a loved one online this year.”
We all complain about Valentine's Day but sadly - especially for those in relationships - not acknowledging it does increase the risk of waking up with one's belongings strewn across the street below. So for those who partake in this supposedly romantic day (be it through genuine sentimental urges, or just for fear of your underwear ending up in the neighbour's shrubbery) we have sourced the most wonderful gifts, the sweetest treats and the prettiest and funniest cards. And - even better - we have found them all online eradicating the need to brace the shops, the crowds and the public embarrassment of carrying a pink teddy around.
If you’re looking to spoil a loved one this Valentine’s Day (or in fact at any time of the year), The Gift Library is a must-visit. An online offering filled with inspiring gift ideas, from the small to the extravagant , for all occasions and budgets, a present sourced on Gift-Library.com will be a certified success. Also offering well-thought-through gifts (albeit by someone else) is Happy Box London. Whether choosing from their beautiful collection or their made-to-measure 'Couture' items, Happy Boxes allow you to select individual gifts to create a box of happiness for that special someone.
For something unique that isn’t going to break the bank (remember, it is the thought that counts) you can send biscuits, quirkily decorated with coloured icing from Biscuiteers, heavenly cupcakes in unique 'jar' packaging from G Desserts or chocolate-dipped strawberries from Berry Scrumptious.
If you don't want to go over the top but want to put the message out there that you care and are thinking of someone special (hopefully the recipient of the card), Hello!Lucky have a unique collection of cards available to purchase online and as always Moonpig is there to allow you to personalise your sentiment, so why not embrace the cheese and modify a card with your own caption and image? DoughDough.com is also an inspired solution for those wanting to make a heartfelt gesture without making a well-matured stilton seem mild, with simple sweet treats with cards for under £5.
For those wanting to pursue the traditional route (and those that know that Valentine’s Day is just an excuse to eat luxurious chocolate), renowned chocolate shop Melt in Notting Hill offers an online ordering service as does the wonderful chocolatier William Curley.
Or if you would much rather spoil your loved one in person, True Deli deliver pre-prepared Valentine’s meals (with three courses, plus canapés and petit fours) to your door complete with very simple, final cooking instructions. For under £50, this is a sure-fire way to impress your partner, without breaking into a sweat in the kitchen or breaking the bank. Score! Who said romance was dead?
