Get Ready For Romance With The Taylor's Valentine's Day Gift Guide
Are you ready to spoil your significant other this V-Day?
Valentine's day is almost here! After the whirlwind of the holiday’s, the prospect of finding another gift for your special someone can be seriously daunting.
Stressing over presents can be a bit of a mood killer, so it can be tempting to rely on the same old staples. Supermarket flowers, chocolate and teddies are fine but come on, surely it’s time for something different?
If you’re stuck on ideas, don’t stress. Here at Taylor’s on the High Street, we take gifting seriously. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite gift ideas that are sure to blow their socks off. So, if you need some last-minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas for her or for him, we have it sorted.
From breakfast in bed accessories for a relaxing and romantic morning, gorgeous handcrafted jewellery and fabulous home accessories, we have them. Scroll through and find your inspiration, or for something to hint for to your partner!
Is There Anything Better Than Breakfast In Bed?
We certainly don’t think so
When it comes to starting Valentine’s Day on the right foot, we think that there’s nothing better than waking up to a delicious breakfast in bed. Even if you’re not exactly the best cook in the entire world, it’s the thought that counts right? Lounging while you have breakfast is an indulgence already, but we have just the thing to make it even more special.
Waking up to new sheets is always a luxury, and luckily for you (and for your partner!) we have a large selection of chic and comfortable options. If you want to really treat them on the 14th, the Laura Ashley Pussy Willow Set is an incredibly stylish gift.
With an elegant design in a modern colour palette, this set features two sides for different decor options. Made using 100% cotton, relaxing is never easier than with a Laura Ashley duvet set.
We have a wide selection to choose from, so you can find the perfect option for your significant other. Now that you have the sheets sorted though, it’s time to think about your serving. We have sophisticated serving trays that turn any home meal into a gourmet dining experience, all without leaving the house of course.
We love the Mindy Browne Sunrise Serving Trays, which exudes old school glamour perfect for setting the mood on Valentine’s Day. These trays are the ideal size for serving, as well as styling coffee tables and bar carts when they’re not in use, so you won’t have to worry about what to do with them after the 14th.
But, maybe you or your other half aren’t breakfast people. These trays are a wonderful way to add a little sophistication to anything you serve, especially a tipple! Why not try our favourite recipe?
Valentine's Day Cocktail
Recipe: BBC Good Food
150ml cranberry juice
1 tsp grenadine
handful of ice
1 lime wedge
chilled prosecco or sparkling wine, to top up
Mix the cranberry juice, grenadine and vodka together in a jug with a handful of ice. Or, do this in a cocktail shaker. Squeeze over the lime wedge and stir with a mixing spoon, or shake briefly if using a cocktail shaker.
Strain the cocktail into two champagne glasses. Drop two raspberries into each glass, then top up with prosecco or sparkling wine to serve.
Give The Gift Of Fabulous Home Decor
Show them how much you care about them, with gorgeous home accessories
Home accessories are kind of our speciality, with stunning pieces sourced from the highest quality suppliers. The best sort of gifts for Valentine’s Day is something they can enjoy well past the 14th. We have heaps of picks for perfect presents, including the stunning Abbas Vase with a unique design that makes it a statement piece.
If you want to set the mood with romantic candlelight, it’s better to do it right! The Sandbanks Iron and Hammered Glass Hurricane uses an antique design with a contemporary twist to offer a truly stylish look.
After a long day, there’s nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa, and we have stunning picks ready for the couch. The Fable Alisa/Mirabel Throw has a classic yet cosy design and goes brilliantly with the Laura Ashley Pussy Willow Cushion.
Put A Twist On A V-Day Staple With Malcolm Appleby Jewellery
Everyone loves getting something shiny.
Here at Taylor’s on the High Street, we’re massive fans of Scottish Silversmith Malcolm Appleby. Exclusive to our online and Aberdeenshire Furniture Shop, these pieces are handcrafted works of art and are perfect for a truly one in a million gift. We’ve chatted about Malcolm’s work before, chatting with the artist himself and discussing the famous Banchory Bangle and it bears repeating!
We’ve picked a few of our most loved pieces that make for fabulous Valentine’s Day gifts, so if you want to send some hints we have some good ideas. We just mentioned the Banchory Bangle, and we’re proud to say that you can get the 2021 design right here. Created with nature in mind, this beautiful bangle is decorated with Gingko leaves.
If you want something a little more dainty, we adore the Narrow Flowers Ring which is engraved with tiny floral etchings. The Primrose Earrings are decorated with silver beads and are sure to wow them on the 14th.
