Bookblock Guide to Valentine’s Gifts 

If it were up to us, it’d be Valentine’s every day. There’s no better time to spoil the one you love or treat yourself to something extra special. (We won’t tell… promise!) So whether you’re an old romantic or a contemporary casanova, we’ve got just the thing for you. This is the Bookblock guide to the very best Valentine’s Day gifts.  

Sweet Like Chocolate

The heart wants what it wants. And our hearts want chocolate. There’s a reason the sweet stuff has become a classic Valentine’s staple. Rich, smooth and a little bit naughty, it’s got everything you want in a romantic gift. But when it comes to chocolate, you don’t have to play by the rules. 

We’ve sourced the finest creations from the world’s most inventive chocolatiers. With artisan ingredients and expert craftsmanship, they don’t just make chocolate, they make moments of magic. So treat your other half to something unique. Although you may want to grab a bar for yourself too.  


Pop it like it’s hot
One of the perks of this job is deciding which tipples make the Bookblock cut. We work with expert brewers from the UK and around the world to uncover some truly world-class gems. The result? A beautifully boozy collection of gifts that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Elevate your date night with pre-made cocktails from Forty Liquors or keep things classy with some French champagne. If you’re looking for boozy gifts for him, we have a wide selection of craft beers and ales. However you spend your Valentine’s Day, we’re raising a glass to you all.   


Yes please, accessories
Just as every Juliet needs a Romeo, every outfit needs accessories. If you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day gift they can use again and again, why not treat them to a little extra finery. 

For him, try our range of sartorial staples including satin handkerchiefs and pocket squares. For her, we have a beautiful range of silk scarves, characterful tote bags and personal trinkets. Or for something a touch more romantic, explore our collection of elegant jewellery. Because sometimes, you just need a touch of sparkle. 


Set the mood
You don’t need to splash out on a spa weekend to enjoy some Valentine’s Day indulgence. This year, why not set the mood with our range of pampering goodies. Create the perfect atmosphere with a gorgeous scented candle or authentic Chinese incense.  

For all-out extravagance, treat your partner to a bath with lavender-infused essence. Or get close and personal with massage oils to relax and unwind together. Explore our range of bath and spa treats and enjoy some quality time.   


Wine and dine
With the amount of staying in we’ve all been doing, it’s about time we pushed the boat out. And there’s no better time to get a little fancy than the 14th of February. This Valentine’s Day, recreate the romance of a five-star restaurant with our collection of foodie-inspired gifts. 

Unleash your inner Nigella with artisan ingredients like handmade Italian pasta. Or pour a glass of award-winning wine from one of Europe’s finest vineyards. For dessert, try a box of delectable truffles or go retro with some sweet-shop creations. Well, they do say that love starts in the kitchen. 


Flower power
When talking about Valentine’s Day gifts, we couldn’t forget about flowers. Fresh, fragrant and beautiful, they’re the perfect way to show your love. But at Bookblock we like to do things a little differently. 

Our bouquets are prepared by hand for a truly personal keepsake. And keep they will. Unlike fresh flowers, our dried arrangements will last for years ready to be enjoyed again and again. Treat your partner to something unique or add them to a Valentine’s Day gift box for a final floral flourish. 


Yours sincerely
Is there anything more romantic than a love letter? At times like these, reminding our loved ones how much we care is more important than ever. The good news is our range of personalised stationery is the perfect place to write to your heart’s content.

For a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift, treat your pen pal to a gratitude journal and help them remember the things that matter most. Or gift them a bucket list notebook and plan your next adventure together. Make them swoon with our unique range of hand-drawn designs. You can even personalise our stationery for that extra-special touch. 


However you treat your loved ones this Valentine’s Day, make it special with our one of a kind gifts. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to check out our range of personalised Valentine’s cards.  

With love,
