Separated from your loved one this Valentine’s Day? These sweet, postable gifts can be sent directly to your special person and will make it on time for the weekend.
What is helpful, though, is our edit of lovely, thoughtful Valentine’s gifts that you can send straight to your other half to brighten their 14 February.
From letterbox biscuits shaped into all sorts of cute shapes and gift boxes stuffed with champagne, all of these gifts can be organised from your laptop and posted to your special person without a middle-woman. We’ve deliberately selected options which have not only been crafted specially for the big day but also offer a personalised note, gift wrapping and 13 February delivery.
Plus, because we’re passionate about spreading the word of brilliant small and independent businesses, we’ve also chosen a variety of brands of which many have recently launched.
And so, because no one wants to be the naughty Valentine blaming the postal service for a late (or non-existent) gift this year, get your surprise sorted below.
Not Another Bill mini chocolate and champagne hamper
What are the clichés of Valentine’s Day, if not champagne and chocolates? And hey, while these gifts may be a well-trodden trope, we’d be very grateful to receive a gift as lovely as this.
Presented in a luxury wicker hamper, each package includes a mini bottle of Bollinger Rose Bottle, a bar of Coco Chocolatier milk chocolate and a pretty Love candle.
What we really love about this idea is that it all adds up for the perfect pamper night in, so if you don’t fancy posting it to a Valentine send it to a friend with instructions to run a bath, relax and enjoy.
This product offers UK Next day delivery for £7.95.
Nicely Done stationery gift box
To be a lover of stationery is an insatiable thing. If your Valentine is obsessed with paper goods (something you’ll have no doubt noticed from their growing notebook collection), then we have the perfect gift.
Nicely Done is a joyful stationery subscription and gifting service put together by Londoner Lydia Cameron which unites cards, notebooks, pens and gifts from the loveliest independent artists.
Especially for Valentine’s Day all stationery gift box orders will be accompanied by a beautiful card handwritten using modern calligraphy so that you can send your present straight to your love in style.
The small stationery gift box includes treats such as a notebook, daily planner pad, Kaweco ballpoint pen, Bare Bones 20g bar of chocolate and greetings card.

Pale Fox gift wrapped coupes
Pale Fox is one of the prettiest prosecco brands out there and this glass coupe gift box certainly looks the part for Valentine’s Day.
Your loved one will receive a bottle of prosecco, which comes from the juice of the glera grapes that grow in The Valley of the Foxes in Asolo. Plus two gold-rimmed glass coupes, gift wrapped and ready for delivery.
Pale Fox offers free two-to-three working delivery on all shipments or next weekday delivery for £4.50.

Sending letterbox flowers is the easy way to get some beautiful blooms to your favourite person, safely and hassle free.
Whether they’ve gone for their daily walk, popped to the shops or are in the bath, these babies will get there safely and be slid straight through the letterbox.
Bloom & Wild have a special Valentine’s range for this year’s celebration including The Camille, which features 24 stems including roses, snapdragons, carnations, olive foliage, statice, and eucalyptus.

Bookblock berry champagne gift box
Bookblock is a brilliant option for last-minute gifting that needs to go directly to the recipient as you can design your own box online and everything comes beautifully gift wrapped. In fact, you can even pick a card of your choice and have a personal message printed in it.
Berry champagne gift box is one of the pre-made options and pairs Bottega’s rose gold prosecco with Truffle Kerfuffle’s strawberry and champagne truffles as well as a vintage champagne flute. Dardiman’s blood orange crisps which are part coated in white chocolate are also included, as is Forty Liquor’s miniature Hot Toddy.

Treats from the Honeywell Biscuit Co. aren’t just sweet to eat, they’re sweet to look at, too. We love their Valentine’s range which, as well as these cute otters, includes biscuits themed for food lovers, floral designs and an adorable pair of rabbits.
The Valentine’s range is letterbox friendly so they’ll be delivered safely whether your Valentine is in or not. You can choose to include a personalised message, gift wrap and a nominated day of delivery.
