LOVE IS IN THE AIR: VALENTINE’S DAY SHOPPING GUIDE

Love is in the air and you’ll find everything you need for a Valentine’s to remember at Lion Walk and Red Lion Yard. With a mix of big high street names and smaller independent shops, there’s gorgeous gifts, cards and outfits to suit everyone from young lovers to old romantics.

Why not treat your special someone to a scent-sational gift from The Perfume Shop? Great value fragrances for both him and her start at just £19.99, including Lacoste Touch of Pink EDT Spray (50ml) and Boss Orange EDT (50ml).

For the chocaholic in your life, Thortons has boxes of chocolates starting from £4.29 and personalised tasty treats from £1.50. If gift-wrapping leaves you in a tangle, Thorntons team of expert wrappers can take care of that too.

Bed & Home in Red Lion Yard specialises in high quality bedding and unusual vintage-style homeware at a fraction of department store prices. Pick up a quirky Valentine’s treat from just £1, with 10% off all gifts until Friday 14 February.

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to cards with a wide range of funny and romantic options available at Clintons Cards and Card Factory.

Lion Walk makes dressing to impress your Valentine’s date easy with all the high street favourites including Marks & Spencer, Topshop, Topman, River Island and New Look.
