Valentine's Gifts for Her - The Vintage Edition

"One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love." - Sophocles

Valentine's Day, that day in February for taking that little bit of extra time to show that special person how much they mean to you - but we know it can also be incredibly difficult to find a valentines gift for the lady in your life, without it being flowers and a box of chocolates! I don't know about you, but I'm of the opinion that the most treasured gifts are the ones where some thought has gone into it. For lovers of antique, vintage and retro, receiving a gift that truly appeals to their style would be truly appreciated!

We've gathered together some of our valentine present ideas for your partner, wife or girlfriend that we think would appeal this Valentine's Day! If you don't find what you are looking for, you can find our full gift selection here.
