Valentines Day gifts n’ pieces

Valentines Day is the perfect excuse to make a good day special. I have selected a few gift ideas for ‘Him’ and for ‘Her’. If she is a lady of good taste, or is a man of good taste, then my choices should be well received and appreciated.

1. The Romantic get away

Indulging in a romantic get away is always bliss. You have an opportunity to escape from the daily stresses of work, children, relatives and friends with never ending problems. Most importantly, it enables you to refocus your energy into your relationship by reigniting the love you feel for one another and rekindle your  friendship without distraction or interference. Pay attention to your partner’s taste;  would a quaint, cosy country house with oak beams and open log fires be more ideal? Or perhaps a more luxurious, contemporary designer touch take their fancy? It is the attention to detail that’ll get you that extra bit of nibbling of the toes!
