Is there such a thing as the perfect Valentines gift that could truly express your undying love for your partner? Well, unless it’s a ring the answer is probably no. And hey, maybe you’re just not there yet but it doesn’t mean you get off scot-free (sorry)… Because yes, even if you said you weren’t getting gifts this year, you’re both still secretly expecting gifts this year…
Is there even a present more stressful than the Valentines gift? Maybe you’ve only been together a month or a year, but choosing a gift that is neither saying too much or too little can be pretty daunting. So, we’ve taken the stress out of the situation and picked our top picks of (relatively) neutral Valentines gifts for your significant other, that you can pick up right here at the market.
You know there’s a strong correlation between scents and love, right? With that in mind, we honestly can’t think of a more perfect Valentines gift than Rose Oud. Designed to be delicately placed on your pulse points, these long lasting, wonderfully exotic scents are ripe throughout the market. Bursting with the sweet smell of rose, it’s a gift you can both enjoy on loveday (interpret that as you will). You’ll find hundreds of scent varieties through market lane, so if you’re looking for your husband or boyfriend, our traders can accommodate with a wide range of male and musky scents. You can find Oud at; Essential Beauty at Stall 48 and Saleem Cosmetics in Shop 45.
Yes, we know roses are as basic as Valentines gifts can get, but is it even Valentines if you don’t show up suited and booted with one in hand? Single or bouquet is totally up to you, but what we can tell you is Gemini’s Florists are having a full stock delivered this Saturday! They are located on Uxbridge Road, under the railway bridge.
Ooh la, la.. Now, this is a tricky one. We don’t recommend going down this route if you’re in a new relationship (sorry for killing your buzz) but lingerie can make the perfect gift if you’re in a long term or stable relationship. The market has an incredible selection of lace, satin and silk lingerie & nightwear on offer for the holiday. Visit Robbies in Shop 41 & Stall 60 and British Lingerie in stalls 34 & 35. Just a little hint though, if she doesn’t seem the type to be into this sort of thing, she probably isn’t, go with the flowers and Oud instead.
From folk to fashion, the market really does have it all when it comes to the jewels. Whether you’re after costume, real gold or semi precious jewellery an abundance is on offer to suit any and all tastes. Visit Bush Stores Jewellery, Sams Fashion Jewellery, Divine Jewellery (Stall 65) and BM Discount Jewellers to see all that we have on offer. But if we may offer some advice, get a box larger than a ring box, so they don’t assume it’s THE ring… if you catch our drift.
