If you haven’t already been made to feel nauseous by the amount of pink and love hearts around, then you may have failed to notice that this weekend it is Valentine's Day.
You haven’t left it too late if you would like to get that special someone in your life a thoughtful gift, here is our guide to impress your partner.
Flowers- In my personal opinion you cannot go wrong with a beautiful bunch of flowers, perhaps go for something more unusual like tulips or freesias, rather than the cliché bunch of roses. Check out the lovely options at www.greatbritishflorist.co.uk for their selection of Valentine Bouquets, they even throw in some chocolate with one of their bouquets.
A Spa treatment- If you really want to indulge in luxury why not treat your partner to a spa treatment or even better have one yourself too! At HolmerPark they have a Serail Mud Chamber, where you can go with your partner and apply mud to yourself or one another. Then when it is all rinsed off you are left with silky soft skin and feeling completely relaxed. See the full selection of spa treatments at www.holmerpark.co.uk
Jewellery- Okay I know jewellery may seem a little obvious for a Valentines gift but you can personalise it by adding an inscription or choosing your partners birth stone on a piece of jewellery. Hereford Gold offers a wide range of pieces including necklaces, bracelets and rings. And you know what they say Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Discover something sparkly at www.herefordgold1.com
Wellington Boots- Hear me out on this one, to me the essence of Valentines day, or just gift buying in general, is buying something for your partner they wouldn’t usually buy themselves. A luxury pair of wellies is not an every day purchase and would be an ideal gift to wear for a romantic stroll around the beautiful landscapes of Herefordshire. Pop in to Phillip Morris to discover their range of sophisticated and stylish wellington’s. Barbour, Hunter or Joules, you will look the part in these stunning wellies. See their range online at www.philipmorrisdirect.co.uk
Ladies if you are stuck for ideas of what to get the man in your life, then you can’t beat a bit of steak. Where in England would you get better steak than in Hereford? If you’re feeling fancy a lovely fillet would be perfect or go for a nice sirloin to put a smile on your man’s face. If you go to your local butchers they can advise you on how to cook it and what to serve with it, but you can’t go wrong with some nice chunky chips, all washed down with a lovely glass of red wine.
So if you’re going for all out romance or a quiet night in with a take away and DVD, don’t forget those three magic words that stand you in good stead for a perfect relationship- you. are. right.
