Flowers with a Difference!
Last Minute Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Say it with Flowers

Who doesn't love to receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers on Valentine's Day? The classic choice is of course a dozen red roses, but the guys at FLOOM just took it up a notch with their fresh, seasonal, handpicked flowers from local florists. Floom searched London high and low to find their team of hidden gems. Gone are those tired mass-market bouquets you get sent by your office team when you're off sick -- no, these are beautiful, artisanal seasonal flowers that your loved one will love. The brainchild of Paris-born and Bali-raised founder, Lana Elie, whose career was in fashion and luxury brands, Floom brings the passion and aesthetic of couture to those magic moments when you say 'I love you'.

Even the names of some of the bouquets make us smile: Sherlock ❤️ Watson, Elizabeth ❤️ Darcy, Thelma ❤️ Louise.  Order Floom Flowers This Valentines!

Secret Heart
Last Minute Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Give Them Your Heart!

This amazing heart contains a secret. Break it open and you'll see it hides a ring, pendant or other piece of jewellery. From Islington-based jewellers Stephen Einhorn (and unique to them!) this is a great idea to present a memorable gift in. This is unusual, romantic, patented, breakable plaster packaging available in blue, red and a bunch of other colours. Encase a piece of their jewellery or one of their gift certificates inside and watch the recipient's eyes light up as they crack the heart open to reveal their prize. LOVE IT! £49

  • Stephen hails from the north of England but has spent more of his life in Oxford, Cambridge, Boston and London than anywhere else. He lives in an architect-designed modern house in North London which was featured in themodernhouse.com which he is slowly filling with midcentury finds to complement the bare bricks and skylights. Stephen wishes he could afford all the things we feature on The Idealist.
