So you guys are right at the beginning of a new relationship. Sure, you might not know every single thing about your partner just yet, but you still want to show that you care with the perfect gift.
Supedrug is a great place to start when looking for a gift. You can spend as much or as little as you want and whether it’s one of their gift sets for men or women, or just something they can use on a day to day basis you’ll be spoilt for choice here.
To inject some luxury into their everyday routine, you could try the OGX Shampoo & Conditioner Gift Packs that come in all sorts of different scents. Choose from Champagne Fizz, Vanilla & Chai Spice or Pink Sugar Plum. These luxury hair care products leave hair feeling silky smooth, hydrated and completely nourished.
For the ultimate pamper, pick up the Superdrug Spaa Retreat Relaxing Collection Toiletry Giftset which, for just £6.99 includes a Renewing Body Scrub, a Creamy Bath Milk, a Nourishing Body Lotion and Reviving Bath Salts. That way you can run your new bae a hot bubble bath and help them to relax and unwind. Don’t forget to pick up some chocolates whilst you’re in store – a famous red box of deliciously rich, Lindt Lindor milk chocolates will extend the luxury vibes even further.
If you are just looking for something modest and unpretentious; flowers are simple but always effective. Bernard Chapman’s has been growing and selling local flowers for almost 100 years and their bouquets are made freshly on the day so why not pick up a beautiful bunch of red roses or something more unique for your loved one this year.
After a few months together, you might want to start getting a little bit more personal with your gift buying.
If the lady in your life is a total fashionista, then Linzi is the perfect place to pick up a gift for her. You can’t go wrong with their huge range of day time and evening shoes which are always up to date with the latest trends! Just make sure to have a sneaky look at her current shoes and get the right size before you buy them. If she already has far too many shoes (not something most women would actually admit to) why not head to Tina Jayne, Georgi or one of the many other quality boutique fashion stores in The Harvey Centre and pick up a pretty dress for your next date night together!
Another lovely, very personal idea is music! You should know what sort of music your partner enjoys by now so whether it’s the new Coldplay album or they just love a little bit of Ed Sheeran, HMV is the place to get it. Alternatively, you could pick up a boxset for you two to watch on those cold, rainy nights in. Either the next season of whatever series you have been watching or something completely new to start together – either way, that’ll be date night sorted for the next few weeks!
Maybe you’ve hit the year mark and you know what your partner likes so you can pick up something you know they will really love.
If your significant other is a big gamer, then a visit to the GAME store in the Harvey centre is only going to end well. If they already have every game under the sun, why not purchase an XBOX Live credit gift card, then they can buy add-ons for games the already have. These start at as little at £5 and go up to £50.
If it’s football they enjoy and Spurs is there team, then it’s the Spurs store you should be heading to next time you visit The Harvey Centre! With all kinds of exclusive merchandise, there is no doubt that you’ll find the perfect gift for your football fan.
Of course not everyone enjoys football but perfume is universally a good gift for anyone, man or woman. You could simply pick up a bottle, or even a gift set of their signature scent or you could be brave and pick something new out specially. Chat to our staff in The Perfume Shop and let them show you the best sellers this year.
You’ve done this a few times now but of course you are still madly in love after all these years and Valentine’s day is the perfect excuse to remind them of that!
If your other half is a travel lover, then some new luggage would make the perfect gift. Whether they’re often away on business or you are planning an exotic trip somewhere together; suitcases, backpacks or travel wallets – Domo on the lower floor has everything you could want or need for any type of trip. The it luggage Dark Floral Virtuoso 8 Wheel Medium Suitcase is very popular with a beautiful floral design and rose gold features and also comes in cabin and large sizes to complete the set!
One last obvious, but timeless gift idea is a beautiful, sparkling bracelet or necklace to show just how special you think they are, a classy new watch would do the same! There are a selection of jewellery shops in The Harvey Centre so why not head to F.Hinds or H Samuel and check out their specific Valentine’s day ranges to find the perfect piece. Every time they look down to see what time it is, they will be reminded of you.
If you are looking for some bling for your man, then you could head to Charles Fish and pick up some trendy cufflinks!
