Being the helpful bods we are, thebestofnorwich has come up with a guide to some of the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas in Norwich.
And because your time is precious, don’t forget that a lot of these ideas can also be used for Mother’s Day, birthdays and anniversaries.
First off, there’s the obvious one – flowers.
Our local Norwich florists can deliver flowers and gifts anywhere in the UK or abroad. Take a look at their website and order your flowers online or, if you’re stuck, just give them a ring. If you order before 3pm they can arrange same day delivery in the UK.
As members of Interflora, you know that quality is guaranteed.
Flowers are the traditional Valentine’s Day gift but other ideas include:
Restaurants – our restaurant guide features a select choice of restaurants ranging from thai restaurants to English Restaurants, some in central Norwich and some on the outskirts of Norwich, but worth the short drive. They have all been checked out by us and come recommended.
Jewellers – Sonkai Jewellers in Exchange Street, opposite Jarrolds, have an on-site goldsmith and offer not only a selection of very reasonably priced jewellery but can also make bespoke jewellery as a Valentine’s Gift that your loved one will love. I am wearing one of their bespoke rings as I type and adore it. The price will also delight you – so don’t be scared to go for bespoke. If you’re worried about ring sizes, they can make up the ring and re-size it once it is being worn.
Hotels – Some of the restaurants mentioned above are based in hotels – why not make the most of the evening and book a night in the hotel. With hotel rooms on our mind, we haven’t yet found a good lingerie provider in Norwich – if you find one that you can recommend, please let us know.
Luxury Norfolk Holiday Cottage - take a short break locally in our clients luxury holiday cottages complete with indoor swimming pool. spa and fitness room.
Chocolate Makers – be different and send your loved one some chocolates handmade in Norwich by our local chocolatiers. Chocolates can be posted anywhere in the UK and make great gift ideas for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, aswell as birthdays. They can even be made in a flavour of your own choice. (Someone has even tried curry!)
Teddy Bears – our Norwich florists have a range of teddy bears which can be delivered as well as or instead of flowers.
Wine Merchants – again the florists can help or for a pack of hand picked wines or Champagnes, speak to Emily at the Perfect Wine, wine stockists in Norwich, sourcing wine from within 1000 miles of Norwich.
Gift Shops – browse in Applewoods in the Mall for skin care, crystals and magnetic jewellery or have a look in their new candle shop at the entrance to Chapelfield.
For the men - what about cufflinks or other accessories from Norwich Tailors Leadenhall Suit Company?
Everyone knows when Valentine’s Day is, but in case you forget, Mother's Day is on 14 March and some of the gift ideas we have come up with here can be used for your mother or mother in law aswell (except the lingerie perhaps!).
And don't forget to take a look at our Norwich events section to see the current Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day events.
