FESTIVE STYLESome of us are excited about hearts, flowers, sweets, and gifts (and then there’s the cynics!). But even if you think Valentine’s Day is a manufactured holiday for people to spend loads of money trying to impress their partner, the thought of doing something to make your loved ones feel special is a nice one, right? The big day is Sunday, but even if you’re a procrastinator like me, that doesn’t mean you can’t find something lovely online. Check out our gift guide with ideas for him and her (all under £100) and everything can be delivered in time for V-day!

For Him

I’m a fan of giving cufflinks for special occasions, and Not On The High Street have an amazing selection of unique cufflink styles. Whether you choose something fun and quirky, sleek and professional, or personalised with a romantic message, you can find loads of options under £100. My picks: personalised map location cufflinks by Ellie Ellie (£29) and the personalised wedding crest hidden message cufflinks by Sally Clay (£79).

Take him on a stadium tour to see where his favourite team plays! Currently you can find sports experience day vouchers for teams like Manchester United and Chelsea at Virgin Experience Days for under £20 (50% off), including tickets for two adults. What could be more romantic? Standard delivery is within 1-3 days, but if you’ve waited until later in the week, select special or Saturday delivery.

If his office wear could use some updating, or you just want him to look smart for your big night out, pick up a new tie, suit, or four shirts for £100 at Charles Tyrwhitt. The red check shirt is my current favourite!

For Her

Debenhams are offering £10 off favourite fragrances and 15% off designer lingerie, so you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a fantastic gift. My choices: Marc Jacobs Honey eau de toilette (now £40), Floozie by Frost French butterfly embroidered babydoll (now £22.10), or the Burberry Brit Rhythm Floral gift set (now £59), including an eau de toilette, purse spray, and lotion. Next day delivery is available if you place your order before 9 p.m., so you’ve got plenty of time to get these to your door before V-day.

If you really want to impress her this Valentine’s Day, a three-course lobster dinner and Thames sightseeing cruise should do the trick! This experience, now half off at £77, includes a meal for two at either The Steak & Alehouse in Bishopsgate or The Kings Road Steakhouse & Grill in Chelsea, followed by the romantic cruise. Head over to Virgin Experience Days and you can select e-voucher delivery for this one if you’re a super-last minute shopper.

Of course, you can never go wrong with jewellery, especially something special from Links of London. Even better, they’re offering free express UK delivery on all orders placed before Thursday, 11 February. I’m loving the Kindred Soul collection, and this gorgeous sterling silver Kindred Soul ring gives the wearer a special message with its entwined heart design. It’s £55, plus use our code for 10% off, bringing your total down to just £49.50.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
