Valentine’s wouldn’t be complete without some beautiful jewellery. Monica Vinader are one of my current fav jewellery brands and they have a lovely 25% off if you order before Valentine’s using this link and the code – INSIDERLOVE-D2B2
I already own a number of their dainty, pretty rings, the Siren collection in particular is my favourite. Or if you’re looking for some classic diamond jewellery then the Riva collection contains some stunning subtle yet sparkly pieces. The Riva mini Kite ring is my favourite and works perfectly for every day or for special occasions. They also have a gift wrapping service so you don’t even need to worry about that when your new jewellery arrives!

I’ll be honest, I find picking physical gifts for guys really challenging. Then I stumbled across Lost Universe full of perfect presents for the gadget lover and gamer. They have a wide range of movie and comic inspired gifts including Marvel, Star Wars, Disney or my all time fav Harry Potter. Treat your other half to the Ultimate Harry Potter Quiz and then spend a date night testing each other’s knowledge and watching your favourite Harry Potter Movies while snuggling up in matching Hogwarts Hoodies.
Alongside your movie night why not have an at home cocktail night. Fentimans have a handy guide to create both cocktails and mocktails from the comfort of your own living room. The sparkling rose lemonade is the perfect ingredient for a gorgeous lemonade gin cocktail.
A great gift that would also be really thoughtful would be some alcohol-free beer. If your partner has made it through a gruelling dry January, which is no easy feat, you’ll want to reward them. But it’s hardly worth getting them a beer and breaking their streak, and that’s why some alcohol-free lager strikes that middle ground really well. Since it’s alcohol-free, you may as well get them something a bit fancy, like Innis & Gunn, expert Scottish brewers who offer a tasty, hoppy lager that is totally guilt-free! It’s a great little addition to a hamper as it works as both a lovely valentine’s gift, but it’s also an ideal way to say “well done!” for getting through Dry January.
I know we all talk about pamper nights for women but men need to make time for some pampering and self care too. Arran Sense of Scotland have a range of skincare gift ideas for both men and women. What jumped out at me immediately was a beautiful, luxury shave stone and soap. Not only will this look pretty sitting in the bathroom but it’s such a unique and luxe gift for your partner, he’ll never want to go back to supermarket shave foam!
A his and hers pamper night wouldn’t be complete without some coordinating dressing gowns. Bedroom Athletics currently have a sale on their mens tartan dressing gown and a range of their super fluffy women’s dressing gowns. Perfect for a night at home or packing to bring to a spa weekend away.
I know socks can be a cliche mens gift but Jimmy Lion luxury socks in the coolest patterns are sure to give your other half a smile this Valentine’s Day while also keeping his feet ultra comfy. From dinosaurs to animals, minions to space themed there’s a print for every man’s taste.
