Create the perfect Valentine’s Day with Whiteley

Valentine’s Day is coming and Whiteley has everything you need to plan the perfect 14th February.

Go big and indulgent and treat someone you love to a pampering day out or an evening full of love. Discover thoughtful gifts to suit their personality or go for a classic Valentine’s surprise (who can truly resist their favourite perfume, a gorgeous bouquet of flowers or delicious box of chocolates?).

With beautiful jewellery, designer nightwear, menus for romantic nights in or fun nights out with your best friends, Whiteley is on hand to make Valentine’s Day something truly memorable this year. Love (from friends and family to your other half) is in the air…

Head to Boots and Superdrug for gorgeous perfumes and aftershaves from Marc Jacobs, Chanel and Dior or cleverly update your partner’s signature scent. For indulgent bathing and body hampers, try The Body Shop which also has an incredible and sustainable grooming range for men or visit Marks & Spencer, Next and Tesco for Valentine’s-inspired gift ideas including beautiful bouquets of spring flowers and delicious chocolates. Holland & Barrett also have bundles full of vegan treats, herbal teas and soothing beauty finds. Give something they’ll definitely love from Waterstones – whether it’s breakout cookbooks for 2023, the latest thrillers (The Mysterious Case Of The Alperton Angels by Janice Hallett is addictive) or memoirs – a book is the perfect way to find something that reflects just how unique they are.

Where to plan your Valentine’s Day out

For a classic romantic date, Wildwood has a menu full of pasta, pizza and cocktails of Pomegranate and Mandarin Fizz or Passion Fruit Bellinis or discover amazing menus at Frankie & Benny’s, wagamama and Bar + Block. Baja Mexicali serve up Mexi-Cali with tacos, burritos, quesadillas, asada fries, churros, agua frescas and margaritas with great music on the side.

For a laidback Palentine’s/Galentine’s, Five Guys, Prezzo and Nando’s will never let you down and for an alternative evening out to remember, lose yourselves at Rock Up climbing or head to Whiteley’s Cineworld. Round off the evening with a trip to the ultimate dessert destination Kaspa’s and share decadent waffles, crepes, sundaes and milkshakes.
