Feelin’ the lurrrrrve this February? To help you prepare for V-Day, we’ve shared some of our favourite gift ideas and experiences at Spitalfields Market that will seriously impress your significant other.
As exciting as it is to have a huge bouquet of roses delivered to your office on V-Day, isn’t it so much better when you are gifted something you can keep? The Peony Rose Scented Candle from Source gives you all the delights of fresh flowers- without the despair of having to dispose of them a week later- for 40 hours! Or spread the love to your interior décor – quite literally – with the ‘Love’ neon sign. The perfect prezzie for the light of your life! Still can’t decide? Head in-store to shop the latest trinkets.
Treat your other half to a Valentine’s to remember with a memorable dining experience at the French Michelin-starred Galvin La Chapelle. If the food doesn’t seriously impress you, then the incredible converted schoolhouse will- it’s pretty clear to see just why it is regarded as one of London’s most romantic restaurants. Michelin-starred brothers Chris & Jeff Galvin have designed an exquisite menu especially for the big day, including Champagne and canapés to start as well as after-dinner coffee with handmade chocolates and macaroons. Bon Appetit!
Is there anything better than the gift of good skincare? Malin+Goetz products are suitable for all skin types and genders, which means no fighting over the Grapefruit Face Cleanser or the Detox Face Mask! We recommend the roll-on Perfume Oil in ‘Dark Rum’– the spicy aroma is sweetened with ripe plum and crisp bergamot, and notes of leather, rum and creamy milk are blended into an intoxicating mix that adapts perfectly to its wearer. Feeling generous? It’s also available as a 50ml EDP.
Looking for something slightly more sentimental, but still totally unique for your loved one? Choose either a pendant or one of the brand-new watches from Unique Lockets and Charms and fill with an adorable selection of charms that illustrate your partners’ personality. Choose from flamingos, music notes, Frozen characters, crystal initials, champagne flutes, dogs- you name it! We recommend allocating yourself plenty of time to choose your charms at the stall in the Traders Market, you’ll be totally spoilt for choice.
