38 Valentine’s Gifts To Fall In Love With

Spoil your paramour this Valentine’s Day with these tokens of your love.

As with just about everything else, Valentine’s Day will be a little different this year. Romantic restaurants and intimate little out-of-the-way wine bars are, of course, off the agenda – yet none of this means that you cannot delight your beloved. We may be home-bound, but a cosy candlelit dinner a deux and a little package – whether said parcel contains something tiny and sparkling, edible or just a sweet token of affection – will never go amiss. Scatter the scene with flowers and chocolate heart and, voila, the scene is set. After all, as the ever-wise fab four once sang, ‘love is all you need’.
