Fancy food and fail-safe flowers are all well and good on Valentine’s Day, but challenge yourself to find a gift that keeps on giving this year.

You could earn yourself some serious brownie points by selecting your other half a brand new scent that reminds them of you every time they spray it. Or treat them to a gadget they’d love to own but would never ordinarily splash out on, offer up some stress-busting ‘me time’ with lotions, potions and candlelight.
