Our list of original (and classic!) Valentine’s gift ideas for 2023

Jo Malone Cologne Intense Oud & Bergamot, £150

Jo Malone London invites you to rediscover the world of Cologne Intense. The collection, cased in brand new coloured bottle designs, looks to the rich and rare as the starting point for nine distinctive fragrances. Whilst most Jo Malone London scents find inspiration in British landscapes, traditions and ingredients, Cologne Intense allows us to find inspiration from further afield. The collection offers warmth, depth and volume, but still retains the signature clarity that Jo Malone London is known for. We love the Oud and Bergamot scent: captivating oud matched with the richness of black musk, radiating with crisp bergamot.

Nancy Mac Lana Jumpsuit in Garnet Silk Velvet, £289

For the ultimate impact this Valentines’ day, treat yourself (or your loved one) to a piece from Nancy Mac. We are obsessed with their stunning jumpsuits, which are so comfortable and well-designed that they flatter every body shape. This garnet silk velvet is ideal for a romantic evening. The softly tailored velvet has a timeless vintage feel featuring a flattering 1940s v-neckline, elegant 3/4 sleeve and softly draped panelled bodice. The jumpsuits have lengthening wide palazzo style trousers, a centre back zipper and an adjustable tie belt to nip in the waist to suit. The jumpsuits are made so that the trouser length can be easily adjusted to suit with a quick re-hemming by any competent seamstress. Bespoke lengths are also provided on request. The piece also comes in a beautiful drawstring taffeta bag.

Follow Delivery service, £ prices vary

A new delivery service called Flowwow is launching in London. Different from others, it supports and continues the trend toward locality. From now on, Londoners and people from abroad choosing gifts for their friends and family in London will be able to choose flowers and gifts from local businesses, which will support the local high street in return. Flowwow’s main feature is making local florists (pictured: White Angel from Floritta, £125) and gifting brands more visible and competitive, cutting through the noise of ad budgets of significant players. The flowers are of excellent quality and are generous proportion. Expect a hand tied bouquet of pink tulips paired with a box of delicately iced cookies and beautifully scented candle. Flowwow connects customers with local businesses from 1000 cities worldwide. You can find flowers and bouquets, confectionery, gifts, and handmade and craft items to please loved ones, even when they are far away.
