Looking for luxury perfume and aftershave? Head to Superdrug, The Perfume Shop (where you can find the newly launched Marc Jacobs Perfect EDT from 1st February) and Boots for Chanel, Dior and more to find their new signature scent (or update their current favourite).

For indulgent bathing, candles and pampering hampers, try Holland & Barrett, TK Maxx and Next while Hotel Chocolat has Chocolate & Fizz collections plus boxes of colourful hearts and macarons specially for Valentine’s.

And, don’t forget to pick up a huge bouquet of flowers from Marks & Spencer – go for spring tulips and lilies as a refreshing alternative to red roses.

Where to plan your Valentine’s Day out

For a classic romantic date (dinner and a movie at the Odeon), Fort Kinnaird has everything from bruschetta and freshly made risotto at Tony Macaroni (they also do a fine line in Prosecco cocktails, mocktails and Amaretto Sours) to relaxed nights out at wagamama, PizzaExpress, Bread Meats Bread and Frankie & Benny’s.

Or if you’re celebrating Palentine’s/Galentine’s with your best friends, enjoy a Nando’s or Five Guys feast or book a table at Fridays for a night of delicious burgers, ribs, vegan fajitas, gin cocktails and Belgian chocolate shakes.
