Valentine’s gifts for her

Whether you’re buying for your girlfriend, wife or partner, you’re about to earn yourself some serious brownie points with these thoughtful and inspired Valentine’s gifts for her. And make sure you don’t forget to pair your present with a perfect Valentine’s Day card for her!

Customised herringbone wool throw

The most appreciated Valentines’ gifts for her are the ones where you’ve clearly put some thought into the gift. So if she’s always getting cold, or loves nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa, give her this very thoughtful customised throw, in a soft and cosy herringbone wool knit, woven in the UK and personalised with your romantic message (you’re on your own for that bit, though.) Even if she’s an interior design fanatic, this throw is stylish and subtle, so it won’t look out of place in your front room or at the bottom of your bed.
