Throughout the night you’ll play at being a scientist and try making your own molecular cocktails using dry ice, foam, bubbles and nitrous oxide.

Acne is famed for its clean lines and Scandinavian chic, and this card holder totally delivers. Impossible not to like, we love the cuteness of its size and how easily it’ll slip into one of our mini bags.

We’ve raved about the wonders of silk pillowcases and how they can improve the texture of your hair and help protect your skin, so we definitely wouldn’t say no to one of these landing in our laps come Valentine’s Day.
Byredo Burning Rose candle
Candles are an essential part of any romantic night in, so if you’re planning on spending valentines day at home, use your present to set the mood. We’re suckers for rose at the best of times, and this heady, floral scent has been taken to the next level with smoky, woody base notes.

There Are Girls Like Lions by Cole Swensen
This may be a book of love poems, but it’s far from your stereotypical valentines tome. There Are Girls like Lions is like a love letter to womanhood, bringing together 30 poems which pay homage to the experiences of being a woman, from motherhood to ageing.
It’s just a coincidence that the gorgeous pink and red book art feels fitting of the day, but a very pretty coincidence at that.
Zara Home pyjamas
A chicer take on the classic Valentine’s nightwear purchase, these Zara Home pyjamas are so stylish we’re tempted to take them out of the bedroom. They’re made from 100% cotton and the floral embroidery, puff sleeves and straight-leg trousers with scalloped trim are all worth your attention.
