V is for Valentines....

I'm happy to say that I will not be alone on Valentines Day this year! (Well, I haven't been alone for a few years now...but still)
Me and the boy have decided to go to Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth for a bit of outlet shopping therapy, lunch in Wagamama's and then to the cinema to see Gnomeo and Juliet. Can't wait!
I also sold my print gocco on Etsy today so I am a little bit richer and can afford to enjoy myself for the day.
What have you bought or planned for your other half? Here are a few lovely things that I think would make good gifts.....

World's largest jigsaw puzzle - £199.99 from

Ok, maybe a little bit pricey but how cool?? Keith Haring is an amazing artist and this jigsaw puzzle has 32256 pieces and comes with it's own portable trolley! Nobody would be expecting that as a gift...

Personalised Eye Test Styled Love Quotes

by I Love Design

£20 from

This one is a bit unusual too. I like the idea of making your present a little bit personal. is a great website for all types of boutique style gifts.

This one is good for boys or girls and is a bit of a romantic classic:

USB Mix Tape by Suck UK

only £16.95

I think everyone under the over the age of 30 has made a soppy mix tape at some point in their lives! This is a slightly more modern way of doing it!

Shake a pix £29.95 from
This is a credit card sized, digital photo frame that you shake to change the pictures. You could upload all the best pics of you and your loved one and give to them as a gift. Is that cute or a bit sickly?
Well, I'm sure you have already bought your presents and I can't be bothered to hunt for any more! I'll keep you posted on my Valentines Day antics :)
