Whether it’s on the 14th of February, an anniversary or any other day it doesn’t matter, showing a bit of romance never goes amiss. It doesn’t have to be expensive! After all, it’s the thought that counts, right? Even if you want to commit to the biggest romantic gesture of them all (such as a proposal), we have online shopping ideas for every budget and every stage of the relationship!
For Her Women like to say they are notoriously easy to buy for, but we know it can still be overwhelming! You can either stick to the proven classics or branch out to find a unique gift to really surprise her.
$ - Fashion Jewellery Jewellery does not have to cost the earth to be meaningful and appreciated! You just have to choose a piece that’s going to remind her of you every time she wears it. A ring is a good example, and don’t worry, it doesn’t have to mean engagement! But when she looks down at her hand while working, driving or even reaching for her drink, it will bring her so much joy if there is a shiny gesture of your love perched on her finger. It’s even better if you pick an item of jewellery that compliments her personality or reminds her of a particular moment in your relationship. We often have pieces in our weekly fashion jewellery auction, items like star sign necklaces, charm bracelets, lobster pendants (to bring back memories of your first dinner date perhaps?)!

Looking at his wrist every day will remind him of you, plus you can even get them engraved with a private message on the back! The origins of Valentine’s Day are still doused in mystery, but most people think it began in Rome in the year 268. Roman Emperor Claudius II believed that unwed young men made better soldiers so the obvious thing to do was to ban marriage. Saint Valentine offered a solution to this problem. He married young couples in secret, allowing them to be together as their hearts desired. February 14th celebrates Valentine’s rebellion. Because as we all know, love always wins!
