Valentine’s gifts – our top picks and something new from Jo Malone
Valentine’s Day is approaching, and news just in – Jo Malone has created the most beautiful gift!
Exclusive to Selfridges London, Selfridges Birmingham and Brown Thomas Dublin from the 7th to the 14thFebruary, Jo Malone have nestled a bottle of their finest fragrance into one of their iconic Jo Malone boxes, surrounded by fresh cut blooms. Heady and irresistible, the scent is inspired by seven of the world’s finest roses, with crushed violet leaves and a hint of lemon.
“Delicious at first, compelling to the last. Like love.”
Pre order is advisable, so don’t miss out! Boxes retail at £140/€155
A touch of Chocolat
If that’s not your vibe, how about a luxurious Valentine’s Day chocolate experience with Hotel Chocolat? You’ll be greeted with a bespoke romantically themed cocktail, there’ll be truffles to taste and chocolate to learn about before you create your very own chocolate masterpiece to take home… although I think mine would be gone before I’d stepped out the door! Tickets are £50 each and events will be held in Covent Garden, London or Leeds, Boar Lane.
Pop some bubbles
If you’re on the hunt for something bubbly, Selfridges offer a personalisation service for bottles of Veuve Cliquot Champagne. Each bottle comes in a tin, printed with a city, country, village, street or place, and the distance from that place to Reims, where the champagne is created. Such a sweet idea to remember a special place – your first date, where he proposed or your first kiss… Bottles cost £56.99 from Selfridges.
Candles are always a winner in my book, and how cute are these limited edition Bella Freud Loving candles?! With notes of tuberose, amber and sandalwood, this luxurious candle is elegantly warming and beautifully romantic! I’ll have two please! You can get these direct from BellaFreud.com for £45 each.
