Treat Her to Something truly Bespoke and Memorable

To help make your Valentine's Day all the more special, we have collaborated with bespoke jewellery makers, Roseanna Croft, to offer a truly Bespoke Design Experience. Between the 31st of January and the 14th of February, any client booking a Bespoke Design Experience will receive a stunning Wallflower Babydoll. Enjoy an afternoon in an exclusive venue for a champagne afternoon tea, looking through gemstone samples with their designer and sketching up ideas to create your own unique piece of jewellery.

Upon collection of your piece, you will receive a Design Storybook, and to make the experience even more luxurious, a Wallflower Babydoll.

*Please note, this offer is exclusive to Roseanna Croft Jewellery and operates on a first come, first serve basis. There are only a limited number of Wallflower babydolls available.

Avoid the crowds and go out for brunch instead

There are no rules about when you have to celebrate Valentine’s Day, so why limit it to the evening? Take her out to her favourite brunch spot or the fanciest place in town for afternoon tea, many places do Valentine’s themed afternoon tea events. Then, when you are done, go home and spend the rest of the day enjoying each other’s company.



Take a tour of a gin distillery

Many of us enjoy a wine tour, the excuse to get tipsy together over some delicious wine, what is not love? However, with gin quickly becoming our favourite tipple, why not book yourselves onto a gin tour instead? Try new flavoured gins together and buy a bottle of your favourite at the end, when you open the bottle it will always remind you of the wonderful date you had together

Try your luck in the kitchen

If cooking is not usually your thing, now would be a good time to give it a try, especially if you know her favourite meal. There are many recipe ideas online with step by step instructions in case you are not the most confident in the kitchen, and the effort is bound to win you more brownie points!

Enjoy a night away from home

There is nothing more romantic then a night in a fancy hotel, even if it is not far away from home, the change of scenery for a night makes this occasion much more magical. So, book a room at a nice hotel, put on your dressing gowns, order room service and relive the first nights you spent together, before children and bills.

Wine and dine her at her favourite restaurant

Of course, you cannot go wrong with eating out on Valentine’s Day, just make sure you book in advance as the best places do book up quickly. If there is a restaurant that you shared a first date, her favourite place in town, or a new place have been meaning to try together – get in early and make a reservation. On the night, tell her to take her time getting ready, surprise her with the location and enjoy the evening.
