PSA: It is not predictable to get red underwear for your girlfriend. It’s very, very welcome. This gorgeous set from Lounge is giving off a sexy Bridgerton vibe.

Stackers heart travel jewellery box – £25.50

Siesta Club Safari Bikini Set – £79

Domaine du Météore Le Cratère Sparkling Rosé – £30

If you’re going to get booze as a gift, it has to be a flex. It also has to be sexy (aka not pints). This drink is both. Le Cratère is an organic “methode champenoise” sparkling rosé wine made in limited quantities (970 bottles) from Syrah grapes. Over 10 thousand years ago a meteorite struck a hillside in Southern France and helped form, Le Cratère, a cosmic wine from another dimension. There you go, perfect for an astrology girly. You can get it here.

Fruity Booty Propose To Me 2-Piece – £72

If you’ve got a cool girl on your hands, she’ll be well acquainted with the underwear from Fruity Booty, the London-based it-brand powered by repurposed fabrics and sustainably sourced materials. Kendall Jenner and Matilda Djerf are fans. You can see their full playful Valentine’s collection here. But if you’re looking for something different (i.e. not lingerie) they have gorgeous slinky dresses too, like this one made from deadstock fabric.

Love by Coach – £76

Valentine's Day gift guide 2024

You can buy it from Champion right here.

Champagne and ‘I Love You’ Giant Cookie & Brownie, both Morrisons – £12.50, £7

If you really really want to get the message across this Valentine’s Day, there’s no better way to do it than with a huge (and delicious) brownie. If cookies aren’t your thing, Morrisons has plenty of other sweet treats to choose from here. It’s only right that you get her a bottle of champagne to wash it down with too (and only £12.50 if you have a Morrisons card).
