Now that the fun of the festive season is over, it can mean only one thing – Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and romance is in the air! It’s the perfect time to plan ahead and track down a Valentine’s Day gift or two to make your special someone smile; at The Centre you’ll find everything you need to mark the day in style - from tasty chocolates and cards, to flowers and gifts.

If you’re running a little low on gift inspiration, here’s our guide to some of the most stylish and indulgent products available from retailers in The Centre - guaranteed to show your loved ones just how special they are.

Fragrances are a classic Valentine’s Day gift for good reason, with scents having the power to conjure up some of the strongest memories we have. At Choize, not only can you choose from their gorgeous new luxe oil based perfumes - Cheron - that are exclusive to Choize, but you can also pick up some of the most luxurious names in the world of fragrance including Creed Aventus, £185.

This iconic men’s fragrance is a sensual mix of fruity head notes of Calville Blanc apple, blackcurrant, pineapple and Italian bergamot, fresh and floral heart notes of jasmine blossom, birch, juniper berries and patchouli and woody base notes of oakmoss, a touch of vanilla and Creed’s signature ingredient, ambergris.

Hotel Chocolat is not only home to a host of delicious chocolate boxes that would be guaranteed to please any chocolate-lover but they also have a sumptuous new skincare range called Rabot 1745. Let them escape to Hotel Chocolat’s St Lucian cacao plantation with the Cacao & Kaolin Clay Thermal Body Masque, £14.95. Cacao butter and macadamia seed oil soften skin, while mineral-rich kaolin clay revitalises circulation for a healthy glow. (Image 2)

For another pamper treatment that they can enjoy in their own home, consider a gift or two from Lush - put together a selection of your Valentine’s favourite products in a hand selected knot wrap or opt for one of Lush’s indulgent gift boxes. We think their Goddess collection is perfect for the occasion – a sensual mix of enigmatic oudh, smoky sandalwood and floral jasmine absolute. The range includes a shimmering soap for £8, spray perfume for £45, solid perfume for £10 and a classic bath bomb for £5.95. (Image 3)

If you’re buying for someone with a vast make-up collection – why not treat them to a stylish new dressing table.

Flowers are always a popular choice on Valentine’s Day but if you’re looking for a floral memento with a longer shelf life why not opt for a cute faux option. At B&M they have florals to suit every décor style – from sprigs of pine and winter berries to complement a cosy woodland retreat, to contemporary succulents in geometric planters. For a vintage vibe opt for simple but romantic pink roses in a white glass pot for £5, perfect for a bedside table or mantelpiece. (Image 5)
