Best gifts £15 or less: Becki Murray, GTG Contributing Editor

Biscuiteers You Are My Lobster Letterbox Biscuits, £12.95

"How sweet is this lobster-shaped biscuit from Biscuiteers! Hand-iced and with a fresh, lemony flavour that should prove universally tasty, you can always trust the brand to deliver something special and high-quality at this time of year. Plus,  if you’ve left your Valentine’s shopping until the  last minute, worry not because they do next day delivery."


Vaisselle for Anthropologie Love Mug, £12

"Is there a better little act of love than making your loved one a hot cup of tea or coffee in the morning, especially as part of breakfast in bed? In my opinion, no - unless it's being served in this endearing hand-painted L-O-V-E mug, with its statement checked design."


Soak Sunday Rose & Sea Salt Candle 70g, £12

"It’s not very often that you can find a full-sized candle for less than £15, but Soak Sunday have done it, and, what’s more, the brand hasn’t sacrificed quality in the process. Offering 14 hours of burn time, you can expect a punchy dose of classic springtime rose, elevated by sea salt and geranium, making it as good for self-gifting as it is for partners and friends."


Lottie London Blush Bestie, £8

"When this sweet and playful colour-changing blush stick landed on the GTG beauty desk, I just knew it was the perfect Valentine’s Day makeup choice for more affordable gifting. Providing a dewy just-kissed flush, it’s a bit of fun for all ages, but especially for the teenagers in your life hoping to fake (or boost) their newly-in-love glow."


Best gifts £15 - £30: Kerry Potter, GTG Contributing Editor

Charbonnel et Walker champagne truffles, £26

"I won’t win any points for Valentine’s Day originality here but you can’t go wrong with a champagne truffle, can you? These French fancies are my all-time favourite; the packaging as delicious the contents. I like to hide them in my secret treats drawer so no one else in the family can steal them."


& Other Stories twisted hoop earrings, £29

"The jewellery at & Other Stories is the best on the high street IMHO. They get it so right – and at the right price. I’m hankering after this chunky, sculptural iteration of the classic hoop. It’ll elevate any boring old outfit."


SevenSeventeen All The Love candle, £24

"This sweet Brighton-based indie candle brand was created by two former journalists. I’m a long-time lover of their chic amber glass jars, sustainable soy wax and policy of donating to mental health charities. This Valentine’s-appropriate black pomegranate fragrance is both sultry and sexy."


Papier Full Of Heart notebook, £23

"I’m never without a Papier personalised notebook to hand – I’m forever jotting down work ideas (plus my evil plans for world domination). There’s something rather lovely about a book with your name printed on it - and if you lose it, you’re more likely to get it back. There’s a cover design for every taste but this one felt most on-brand for V-Day."


Best gifts £30- £50: SJ Corfield-Smith, GTG Beauty Director

Stanley Aerolight Transit Leak-Proof Travel Mug, £31.99

"My obsession with the best reusable water bottles is now spreading to travel cups and of course, this light pink one from Stanley is what I have requested from my husband for Valentine’s Day this year. Nothing says love like giving your better half the tools to keep their first cup of tea or coffee piping hot for hours. Nothing I tell you.”


Skims Valentine’s Day Socks, £48

“I know socks may seem a bit naff but these come in such great colours, and with love-themed messages making them a gifting winner in my eyes. Plus, like the rest of the Skims range they are super comfy and will fast become part of your daily wardrobe.”


Elizabeth Scarlett Love Makeup Bag, £32

“This is very much a makeup bag but I think it could make a great clutch bag for date nights too. Roomy enough to fit in all your essentials but chic enough to pass as both beauty storage and an accessory.”


The Little Botanical Love Heart Succulents, £41

“Flowers are all very well but not hugely sustainable and also involve a fair bit of admin (cutting stems, refreshing water etc.) which is where this trio of succulents come in. They’re hardy little plants that require very little watering and a mildly sunny spot on a windowsill.”


Best gifts £50-£100: Jemma Thompson, GTG Design and Social Media Manager

Ganni Light Pink Fitted Rib Knit Wool Beanie, £75

“It’s safe to say, almost everyone wants to be a Ganni Gal. The Danish fashion brand has taken TikTok and everyone's wishlist by storm and I want a slice of that cake. This statement fitted wool beanie is the perfect entry point for any fashion lover. Trust me, they’ll be wearing it non-stop.”


Jo Malone London Rose Blush Cologne 50ml, £86

"As SJ mentioned above, flowers are great but they don’t last forever so my Valentine's wish is a floral scented fragrance, of course. Brimming with notes of rose, fresh basil and white musk, this is a guaranteed head-turner. Plus, how could anyone resist a bottle with such a beautiful illustration all housed in a classic cream Jo Malone box?"


Astrid & Miyu Heart Charm Huggies, £70

"Now it can’t be Valentine's without something heart-related, can it? I’ve been eyeing up these huggie earrings for a while now. Not only are the 18k gold-plated sterling silver earrings good value for money, but you can also get two looks in one. As you can remove the charm if you fancy a plain gold hoop - now that’s my kind of gift!"


MZ Skin Hydra-Lift Gold Face Mask Pack of 5, £95

“A relaxing sheet mask is holy grail in my beauty routine. So for me, there’s nothing better than receiving a luxe bougie one as a gift. This opulent pack of five hydrogel sheet masks contains niacinamide, vitamin C, and collagen to plump and firm the skin, leaving you with a radiant, hydrated complexion. I can already feel the brightness!"


Best gifts £100 or more: Victoria Woodhall, GTG Editorial Director


"This duo is ideal if  you have a mantelpiece (you need a candle at either end - preferably two complementary but not samey ones) or if you are racy and have two people to buy for on February 14th. Diptyque candles may be a gifting cliche but thanks to the limited edition cool artwork on these classic scents, and the post-burn excitement of having the poshest pen/ plant/ toothbrush holder around, it’s a gift that keeps on giving."

Liforme White Magic Yoga Mat, £145 (Valentine's offer: second one half price)

“Yoga mats are like white shirts for me - you can never have too many,  and this white and gold Liforme mat designed by top teacher Kino MacGregor, is the ultimate indulgence. A bit like owning a white Stella McCartney coat, you have to treat it with reverence, as the biodegradable PU surface marks easily, so you’ll really want to take advantage of the Valentine’s Day offer of getting a second everyday one for half price to lug to the studio. I’ll take the blue Cosmic Moon mat please.”


Eberjey Inez Washable Silk Printed Short PJ Set, £295

"My bedtime paraphernalia  - bite splint, eye mask, weighted blanket, Sensate power nap pebble  – is anything but sexy, so these gorgeous red (but not tacky red) silk pyjamas provide the romantic levelling up I need. And - music to my ears - they are also washable. (Note to self: uplevel bedtime thoughts also.) The silk is high quality and made with the lowest possible environmental impact. Every night’s a silk PJ night!"



“Who would spend £138 on a hairbrush? No one in their right mind, I thought, until I ran a Bonne Brosse through my hair – and had to do it again immediately, it felt that good. It gently massages even a sensitive scalp and  hair looks instantly glossier, probably due to how finely packed the non-tugging nylon and boar bristles are. The shiny, twisty handle adds an extra aesthetic the experience. A investment hairbrush yes, but one you’ll use evey day for life.”
