The Valentine's Edit By Emma

While things might not be back to normal, it’s more important than ever that we take time to appreciate our loved ones and look out for one another. I’ve never properly felt the need to do much on Valentine’s Day but because it’s been one hell of a year - I’ve never wanted to celebrate it more. This year we can all do so much better than just a card. I’ve put a list together which includes a list of different, fun and quirky ideas that will help make the day stand out from the rest.

The Valentine's Edit By Emma

While things might not be back to normal, it’s more important than ever that we take time to appreciate our loved ones and look out for one another. I’ve never properly felt the need to do much on Valentine’s Day but because it’s been one hell of a year - I’ve never wanted to celebrate it more. This year we can all do so much better than just a card. I’ve put a list together which includes a list of different, fun and quirky ideas that will help make the day stand out from the rest.

Book Subscription


Books can provide the essential escape from the monotonous routines of quarantine by transporting readers to far-off lands where exciting adventures and endearing characters await. This book subscription gift is personalised to your recipient’s reading tastes, with an expertly selected, beautifully gift-wrapped book arriving each month. 


By Alice


Go vintage for Valentine’s Day this year. By Alice is the dream for finding quirky vintage pieces. Whether it’s colourful tumblers or a large hand carved antique dresser, I always find myself drawn to her pieces as they are something out of the ordinary that has had a past life. 


Donate Food to the Trussell Trust

You don’t have to do something big this year. It’s important that we are all looking out for each other and by donating food to the Trussell Trust you can make a real difference to many thousands of peoples’ lives. The Trussell Trust’s ambition is that one day no one in the UK will go hungry or live in poverty - that’s why food donations are absolutely vital. 


Action Aid - Blanket Gift 


While we are all spending more time cuddled up under blankets with our loved ones this winter, it’s important to remember those who are suffering in the cold. Providing four blankets for a family to help them stay warm when they have lost everything can be just the life-saving gift they need.


Pasta Evangelists Subscription

This really is the gift that keeps on giving. Pasta is definitely the way to my heart - there’s no better way to treat a pasta lover than a gourmet pasta subscription. Their ever-changing menu offers everything from popular Italian classics to lesser-known regional dishes so there is always something new to discover.


Arena Flowers Subscription


I recently bought this subscription as a gift for my mother in law and they have gone down a treat. Arena flowers are all ethically sourced and are the perfect gift to brighten any home and to make your friends and loved ones day. You can simply choose how often you’d like the lucky person to receive them! 


Magnificent Marrow - Sunday Lunch Box


As Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, there’s no better way to mark the occasion than by making a delicious Sunday Roast. Magnificent Marrow has the most wonderful Sunday lunch hamper box, filled with beautiful fresh produce which takes all the stress out of cooking. 


Grape & Fig - Grazing Platter


Feel like you’re in the stunning region of Tuscany sipping on an aperol spritz with these incredible grazing platters. The platters speak for themselves, they are truly stunning and look even more delicious.


The Nue Co - Functional Fragrance 


This fragrance is the ideal gift to lift anyone’s spirits this Valentine’s Day. It’s designed to be an anti-stress supplement in the form of a fragrance. What’s even better is that it’s a unisex scent that can be used throughout the day, or at moments of high stress. Trust me when I say it smells so good you’ll be batting off compliments! 


Breakfast in Bed Hamper - Not On the High Street


While we can’t mark the day by going to our favourite restaurants, it’s important to still spoil that special someone. This gorgeous ‘Breakfast in Bed’ even has a mini milk pudding vase which you can personalise to make breakfast extra special. It’s so important to support small businesses like these which have the most beautiful ideas.
