Share the Love Locally

Valentines gifts for all - the perfect chance to share the shop local love.

Valentine ’s Day is our Love Local Day – and it will soon be upon us -  so whether you have a special someone to share the day with or you would rather forget the day exists, we think it will be all the happier if you share the love with your local businesses. 

If you are treating a partner, your parents, your siblings, a friend, someone you really care about or just pampering yourself - we’ve got lots of gifts to say ‘I Love You’ or to call to say how much you care.  From handmade ornaments, personalised gifts, commissioned arts pieces or edible sweet treats - we are here to help you find that perfect gift to give to that special someone.

Lots of the shops will offer postage -  if you are lucky enough to live locally to these fabulous spots or buying for a friend / family member that are local you can get home delivery or click & collect (depending on your local Covid19 restrictions)
