Nous aimons Saint Valentin!!
Long gone are the days of young men stripping off and using goat skin whips to spank the backsides of young women thankfully. Although we are desperately in love with the story of Valentin of Rome who was imprisoned for carrying out secret weddings for soldiers, and we have Geoffrey Chaucer to thank for linking the day to ‘romantic love’.
Today Valentine’s is celebrated in numerous ways, from poetry and feasts to more obvious purchases of flowers & lingerie. So with all things love on our mind and in our hearts, Veruca Salt presents some must-have amour goodies…
For those with a fondness for food head to Fortnum & Mason for their Valentine’s food collection. We simply adore the Swallows Love Biscuit.
Devoted to drinks then look no further than new Polish vodka Silver Rocks. Sure to be appreciated by the most discerning drinker. We love their Silver Bullet cocktail containing 50ml Silver Rocks Vodka, 12.5ml Orgeat and 50ml fresh apple juice poured into a glass lined with a teaspoon of grenadine.
For a discreet Rose, the S.T. Dupont Ligne 2 lighter is the perfect keepsake.
More Than Words Eau de Parfum from Xerjoff Join The Club provides a modern day twist for poetry lovers.
And because we couldn’t resist the old cliche of lingerie, the Gloria collection by Agent Provocateur is a must!
We leave you with Will Shakespeare’s Ophelia in Hamlet:
“To-morrow is Saint Valentine’s day,/All in the morning betime,/And I a maid at your window,/To be your Valentine.”
