My Funny Valentine

Pin It


Valentine’s might not be ’til next week, but we like to plan ahead here at W&W. Also, you might need ideas – or to waft this post under the nose of your beloved. Because red roses are not to every girl’s taste.

if a card is not sufficient to express your devotion, then a whole print could do the trick.

Of course, flowers are always acceptable…

As are candles. Always. Neom has – just in time for Valentine’s – released their limited edition Love candle, a heady blend of Mimosa, Tuberose and Jasmine. It smells like a perfect, balmy summer evening. Present me with this and a side order of pretty chocolates, and I’d be yours.

If it’s scent you’re after, Jo Malone’s Red Roses collection is a surefire winner. Classic, timeless, can’t-go-wrong (and almost definitely classier than the cliche bouquet of red roses).

Stationery is always guaranteed to get my heart beating apace…

Books and chocolate? Why didn’t you say so before? I would love a little package of grey deliciousness from Persephone Books. Only hearts of stone could fail to be moved by Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day; The Making of a Marchioness is singularly charming and unexpected (it was one of Nancy Mitford’s favourites); Lady Rose and Mr Memmary is a delightful love letter to – amongst other things – Scotland. (I might get it as a Valentine for my dear friend Katie.

And if you must do underwear, make it entirely lovely. I give you a budget v blow out option, depending upon the depth of your lover’s (or your) purse.
