The best Valentine’s Day gifts for 2020

Grind bean & ground coffee refillable tin

An ideal gift for the coffee lover in your life, this reusable tin in pretty pastel pink comes filled with either whole or ground coffee beans, straight from London’s Grind. We love the house blend, with notes of chocolate, but there’s also the lighter floral black blend or a decaf option.

Available from: 
Amazon (£8.95)
Grind (£9)

Latte ankle socks

These make a fun, budget-friendly gift for your favourite wannabe barista. We love the cute latte-art-design, and they come packed in a takeaway coffee cup.

Available from:
Anthropologie (£12)
Ohh Deer (£11.50)
Trouva (£11.50)

White Heron British framboise

Fresh, zesty and intensely raspberry-flavoured, this liqueur is made with Herefordshire raspberries and has the perfect balance of tart and sweet. Add a dash to a glass of champagne for a perfect Valentine’s Day aperitif, or try using it in cocktails.

Available from:
White Heron Drinks (from £12.50)
Waitrose & Partners (£19.99)
Ocado (£20)
Amazon (£24.02)

Pierre Marcolini Valentine’s hearts chocolates

Chocolate might seem like an obvious gift, but there’s a reason it’s so popular. You really can’t go wrong with this beautiful box of heart-shaped chocolates cast in gorgeous gradient shades of pink. Traditionalists will love the hazelnut praline caramel in white chocolate or the salted caramel varieties, but there’s also yuzu, raspberry and rose-passionfruit flavours for those who like something fruitier.

Available from Pierre Marcolini (£23)

Legend mug

Show your partner just how legendary you think they are with this embossed mug.

Available from February from Oliver Bonas (£12) 

champagne and smoked salmon gift set

Forman & Field smoke & bubbles box

For an extra-special start to your Valentine’s Day dinner, treat your partner to champagne and smoked salmon. This gift set from Forman & Field includes their deliciously delicate-yet-meaty, grade-one London cure smoked salmon plus a bottle of bubbly.

Available from Forman & Field (£56.95)

Niederegger marzipan hearts

In love with a marzi-fan? Win them over this Valentine’s Day with a box of dark-chocolate-covered marzipan hearts.

Available from ChocolatesDirect.co.uk (from £3.19 for one)

Gin 1689

This incredibly smooth gin with notes of clove and aniseed has a unique story, having been recreated from a 300-year-old recipe made popular by King William III in 1689, hence the name. The gorgeous, royal-blue bottle with striking gold lettering makes it great for gifting too.

Available from: 
Master of Malt (£39.95)
Amazon (£39.95)

Coeur de neaufchâtel cheese

For a truly cheesy gift, this creamy, heart-shaped coeur de neufchatel is ideal. One of Normandy’s oldest cheeses, it’s similar to camembert, only richer – just the thing to round off your Valentine’s Day dinner.

Available from Paxton & Whitfield (£7.50)

PlayIn Choc JustChoc boxes

Vegans (and those with dairy, gluten and soy allergies) needn’t miss out on high-quality chocolate this Valentine’s Day. We love these silky, dairy-free chocolate pieces (available in milk or dark) that come embossed with little hearts. The packaging it completely compostable too!

Available from PlayIn Choc (£5.95)
