Be head over heels this Valentine’s Day

Valentines Gift Guide

If inspiration is running low, look no further as we’ve put together a lavish list of decadent delights and tantalising treats available from retailers at The Centre.

Scent is a powerful sense and can transform your mood from fresh and fun, to sultry and seductive in an instant. Boss Femme by Hugo Boss, £42, The Fragrance Shop, is a classic for a reason – hints of blackcurrant, tangerine and freesia combine with wood and musk for an ultra feminine, modern fragrance. Perfume lovers might also be tempted by the latest Narciso Rodriguez scent – Fleur Musc for her is new for 2017, available in Debenhams, a romantic mix of rose, peony, musk and patchouli.

For ladies embracing the cosy hygge trend this winter – a fanciful pink knit mermaid tail blanket from River Island, £26, will be sure to add a touch of charm to an evening curled up on the sofa. Dive into the latest thriller from Waterstone’s, light a scented candle and enjoy!

Hygge is also about taking time to appreciate the small things in life – a cute wooden memory box, £1 from Poundland, is a thoughtful, affordable way to store mementos of friends and loved ones.

For a fun nod to all things romantic, why not opt for a funky badge detail shoulder bag, £20 from Next – the practical shoulder strap combined with quirky slogans gives a playful, modern twist to any outfit.

Revamp your lingerie and sleepwear with touches of silk and lace; for a chic confidence boost which won’t break the budget Primark has a stunning range of guipere lace bralettes (from £8) and briefs (from £3) or opt for a siren red pyjama playsuit, £25, River Island.  

If high heels are a particular weakness, look no further than a gorgeous pair of stiletto lace up, laser cut sandals, £35 from M&S, in seductive red. Guaranteed to please, these heels are part of the Insolia® range which include innovation technology designed to redistribute weight, reduce pressure, increase ankle stability and allow the heels to be worn comfortably all day long.

Try a new look – the Ultimate Eye Collection from Kat Von D and Too Faced, £46, Debenhams, is loaded with everything you need to create fab and fearless eye looks. With pigment rich eyeshadows in matt, shimmer and metallic finishes, a sumptuous liquid liner and volumizing mascara this set provides everything a girl could need to channel her inner make up goddess.

Indulge in some me-time with a pile of Lush goodies – the Love & Kisses gift set from their Valentine’s range, £24.95, includes Prince Charming Shower Gel with hints of pomegranate juice and grapefruit oil, a Love Spell massage bar with organic cocoa butter and rich rose hip syrup, Love You, Love You Lots soap infused with rose petals, oil and syrup, and The Kiss lip scrub – a sweet treat which guarantees super smooth lips.

For a truly relaxing pampering experience, why not take advantage of the February offer at The Retreat Health & Beauty Spa – for just £70 you can unwind in style and enjoy a Shellac file and polish, an ishga deep cleanse facial as well as a shoulder, neck and back massage.
