Here at Vicar Lane we have a great range of shops to suit everyone and we’re pretty sure you’ll find that special something for that special someone in your life.
For the young romantics, this might even be your first Valentine’s Day together! February is the perfect time to pull out all the stops and show your boyfriend or girlfriend just what they mean to you. Whether you want to get a traditional Valentine’s Day gift or something a little more understated, there are plenty of things at Clintons to treat your boyfriend or girlfriend to. The Me to You brand is a classic Valentine’s Day choice and there are some really sweet little cuddly toys with messages on them.
Alternatively, if you want to stay away from the traditional red roses and cuddly toys, why not get your boyfriend or girlfriend a gorgeous photo frame from Clintons to display that cute first photo of you both together. Clintons have a beautiful range and this really is such a personal and sentimental gift that can be displayed all year round. It will remind you both of some really special memories as well as looking lovely in your bedroom.
The Newly Engaged Couple
For the newly engaged, the sparks will still be flying and you’re probably both living in a day dream like bubble of love. Whilst every day probably feels like Valentine’s Day, it is still the perfect opportunity to celebrate your special connection and memories together. You might feel as though you want to shower each other will beautiful gifts and why not just go for it! Feeling in love can distract your mind from logical decisions so just go with your instinct and buy them that special present. F.Hinds have a stunning collection of male watches perfect for your fiancé. Whether they love a shiny, golden, statement bracelet style watch or a more traditional leather strapped and simple looking watch there are lots of brands here for you to browse in order to find the perfect arm candy for your man.
Gents, if you really want to treat your lady to something beautiful you can’t go wrong with a set of stunning underwear… and let’s face it this is also something you can enjoy aswell! There are some gorgeous sets at Ann Summers with colours and choice galore. Don’t worry, this can be a little overwhelming but the friendly staff are more than willing to help you pick out that special lingerie set for your partner so there’s no need to get your knickers in a twist!
Married for years and best of friends!
You’ve been married for years and you’ve celebrated many a few Valentine’s Days together. Perhaps you haven’t put much thought into this day but why not reignite that flame and get those fireworks going again. Don’t just settle for an ‘in joke’ card that will make you both chuckle over breakfast before you get on with your day. This year, why not really pull out all the stops and do something that will take you both back to your former years together. Do something that will remind you both of those flirty glances and passionate kisses you used to share whilst creating more special memories.
We recommend booking a mini break away with Co-operative Travel. They have some great deals on city breaks so how about a couple of days in Paris, the city of love, or Venice, one of the most romantic places in the world. A lazy morning in bed with a croissant followed by an afternoon exploring some iconic city scenes is the perfect way to spend some quality time together and reconnect over a bottle of bubbly.
Valentine’s Day isn’t just for the loved up, there are plenty of fun things to do if you’re single! For the lads, why not have a night in with a new game from Grainger Games and an epic takeaway. From Call of Duty to Grand Theft Auto, there are so many great games here at Grainger Games that will ensure you and the boys have a fun and very competitive evening.
For the girls, why not organise a ladies night out with all your single besties. You make a day out of it too and visit Supercuts for a blow dry. Not only will you feel pampered and beautiful and ready for your night out but your hair will look amazing too!
Finally, a trip to New Look is sure to find you that perfect dress for your evening… there are so many style to choose from so take some friends with you too for the ultimate trying on sesh.
So whether you’re all loved up or ready to paint the town red, Valentine’s Day is a day to be enjoyed by everyone and we hope you have the greatest time whatever you are doing!
