The perfect valentine’s gifts for her for every budget, from flowers to lingerie

The most-romantic day of the year is this Friday, and if you’re anything like us you’ve left things to the last minute.

Now, you’re not quite sure what your wife, girlfriend, date, lover or partner would like – even if you know their interests.

That’s where we come in.

Whether your partner is a beauty-queen, a homeware hoarder or an adrenaline junkie we’ve put together a little bit of everything so you can choose the perfect gift.

Enjoy, and happy Valentine’s Day…


1. Paco Rabanne Olympea Eau de Parfum gift set, £64, The Perfume Shop

Everyone loves a fragrance on Valentine’s Day.

Receiving a beautiful bottle of scent makes us feel special (and like you want to get physically close enough to us to smell our skin).

Below that is the divine smell of cashmere wood and Ambregris.

4. Ella lace triangle bra, thong and suspender belt, £29.50, ASOS

The trick to buying the best lingerie gifts is to buy your lover a set which can also be worn, in part or in full, in every day life.

There’s not much point splashing the cash for an uncomfortable or unrealistic set which she only wears once (unless that’s your kink and then crack on).

This feminine, rich wine coloured set has the sexy additional option of the suspender belt, but the thong and bra can be worn every day.

Remember: ASOS do next day delivery.
