This February, Ross and I have been together 10 years. In normal circumstances, we would collar a babysitter and go out and celebrate. But, of course, it is 2021 and we need to be sensible in the midst of a pandemic. So, another night in it is then!
However, thanks to online everything including shopping and events, I have put together a gift guide for busy couples to help to treat each other this Valentines Day.
Edinburgh Gin Journey Bottling Note Gift set
I absolutely love gin and have lusted after some proper gin glasses for quite some time!
Well, Edinburgh Gin have come to the rescue with this beautiful gift set thanks to Master of Malt. Containing a bottle of Edinburgh Gin alongside two branded glasses, the box looks like a massive book which inspired by the city of Edinburgh’s standing as a UNESCO City of Literature and its world-famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Plus, there is a booklet full of classic cocktails to be made too. Retailing at £46.95.
The Instagram Bag
A useful Valentine’s gift is a great way to show someone they care. I have to say that Ross is excellent when it comes to thoughts like this.
With photography becoming my main profession, The Instagram Bag from Paper bag Co is a great gift for any photographer and provides you with everything you need in one place to enable you to take the perfect food photos.
The stylish 12oz black canvas bag has an internal pocket and mesh divider with zip closure and holds a 15-inch 5 in 1 pop up reflector, 8 postcards with handy tips and 4 photographic backdrops. It retails at £39.95.
This beautiful silver heart personalised locket is made of solid 925 sterling silver and has an adjustable solid silver chain length of either 16 or 18 inches. It holds two images of your choice and you can choose from 3 fonts for the engraving on the front.
Available from Lovelox retailing from £60.
