Alternative & Quirky Valentines Gift Ideas!

Blame it all on Geoffrey Chaucer!


Apparently, the first written reference linking love and romance to Valentine’s Day was in a poem created by Chaucer to celebrate the anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II to Anne of Bohemia. The line in question (in modern language) tells: “For this was on St. Valentine's Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate.” This may have been an error. A better translation would be: “...when every soul visiteth Gifts from HandPicked to choose a love token”. Or maybe not, but as we’re on the subject...

Gisela Graham, Clarke & Clarke, Brightside...


There’s a selection of delightful Fabric Hearts from Clarke and Clarke and Gisela Graham, or a Bright Side “Yep Still Hot” compact mirror (we promise not to tell if you buy one for yourself). Gentlemen, if you feel an act of bravery is called for, simply treat her to a Really Great News picture frame featuring the headline “After longest engagement in history, couple finally weds”.
