Hey there, lovers. We're here to remind you that it's only four days until the big day.

That's right, Valentine's day is once again here. But what if you're perfectly happy being single and don't fancy getting carried along with all that love palava but think you owe it to yourself and your friends to celebrate?

Well, we might have found the perfect antidote. Behold, 10 items that we think are ideal for gifting that special someone in your life, even if that person just so happens to be your best friend. 

From stacking rings to salted caramels, as well as funny cards, you'll love all of these presents so much, you'll probably want to buy some for yourself too. 



  • 6-pack rings

    These stacking rings are brilliant because they will give any outfit a lift. Wear all of them at once for boho glamour or simply one at a time for just a hint of bling.


  • Harling Breton Stripe Jumper

    Brand new hot brand of the moment Finery has just launched and with it a collection of classics with a twist, such as this high neck Breton top. We're in love. Well, it is Valentine's day.


  • Dark Sea Salt Caramel Truffles

    We have it on good authority (from our own taste buds no less) that these are simply delicious. The hard dark chocolate is not too bitter and the moment you crack through it, you get a wash of the most intense salted caramel you've ever tasted. 


  • Lizard Coin Purse

    There are times when presents you buy for others are also presents you'd also like for yourself. This coin purse is probably one of those times.


  • 14k Beaded Friendship Bracelet

    Complete with rose gold beads and silver silk, this is what a grown-up friendship bracelet looks like. 


  • We connect dot to dot Valentine's card

    Just because you love your friend, doesn't mean you can't get them a Valentine's day card.


  • Clueless pencil set

    Cher and co's classic sayings from Clueless committed to pencil. So fetch. Wait, sorry, wrong film. Oh, you know what we mean.


  • Stone draped trench coat

    If you're looking to spend a bit more on your friend, then we suggest this spring season staple. We guarantee she'll always get compliments when she's wearing it, which means she owes you forever. In a good way.


  • Kiss 'n' Tell Posey Rosey lip and cheek tint

    Before heading out for drinks on Valentine's day night, just dab a tiny amount of Cheeky's kiss 'n' tell tint and you'll be good to go. This means more time sipping Martinis.


  • Drink the fat card

    Remember The One When No One's Ready episode of Friends? If not, then perhaps this isn't for you. But, if yes, then like us you'll remember the moment Ross told Rachel he'd drink the chicken fat in the fridge so she'd forgive him for being rude to her.
