It’s the last shopping weekend before Valentine’s Day but if you can’t face the crowds, here are a few online gift options…
If your partner loves all thing patterned, then George the Chameleon is the perfect necklace for her. George was born from a collaboration between Brighton based designers Designosaur YEAH and Hello Dodo and I just love him! He goes with any outfit!

Although these Charlotte Olympia shoes are called Birthday Shoes, why not get them for Valentine’s Day…extra points for getting your partner’s shoe size and star sign right! The shoes are embellished with a Swarovski crystal Zodiac symbol and come with a Charlotte Olympia horoscope book. I love the embroidered zodiac symbol on the heel! If flats aren’t your girls thing, heels and clutch bags are also available.

Why not get one of these stylish etched apothecary bottles from Rockett St George coupled with maybe a bottle of your partner’s favourite bubble bath or…

…buy a bottle of Lush’s Prince Charming Shampoo. Your partner can be swept off her feet every morning! You can wrap both the bottles in Lush’s Do Knot Disturb wrap which doubles up as a scarf and has a conscience being made from 100% recycled bottles. A Vivienne Westwood designed wrap is also available with all profits going to climate change campaigns and sustainable solutions in the UK. Good old Lush!

I absolutely love this next gift and is perfect for any Instagram obsessive! It’s called Projecteo and you basically pick 9 of your favourite Instagrams online which are then printed onto a single frame of 35mm slide frame. These then get posted to you with a mini projector! Now this is from a US company and it does take them 2 days to create the film then 14-21 days to ship outside of the States so the projector won’t arrive until after Valentine’s Day, but you can buy a gift certificate so your partner can choose her own favourite pics. The Projecteo is only $35/approx £21.50 (excluding shipping and taxes) which I think is great! It’s just a bit of fun but I love it…if only I instagrammed!

The Spicery’s SpiceBox subscriptions are a great gift idea for guys who either fancy themselves as a bit of a culinary genius, or for those that are getting to grips with the kitchen. You simply subscribe to either a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription and then chose between a ‘Friday Night Curry’ box or ‘World Kitchen’ box, then once a month a Spicebox will drop through your letter box containing; laminated recipe cards and a binder, samples of freshly ground spices measured for the recipes enclosed, news, tips, offers and discounts, and a special gift every 3 months. Guaranteed monthly date night….and he does the cooking!

Probably not the most romantic of presents but Joy’s Man Shed Box is quite funny, and perfect for guys who are constantly misplacing things…and who don’t have a garden to own an actual shed!

One Must Dash’s print below entitled ‘Love Letters’ is a subtle reference to Valentine’s Day. It would look great in a study or office.

Not On The High Street is one of the best websites to go to for personalised gifts, and some of the independent designers and makers can turn personalised products around so quickly. Guitarists would appreciate this initialed African Rosewood plectrum by Maria Allen Boutique. If you order within the next couple of days, the plectrum will arrive for Valentine’s Day using standard UK delivery, but a next day delivery option is also available.

If your chap’s Movember facial hair has outstayed its welcome, treat him to an old fashioned cut-throat shave. For London based folk, Ted Baker has numerous Grooming Rooms which you can purchase treatment gift certificates for- judging by the videos on the website, your man will be completely pampered! A few other traditional barbers around the UK include Manchester’s Gentry Grooming, Ruffians (great name!) in Edinburgh and Jack’s of London have numerous barber shops dotted around.
