Are You in Love with an Old Romantic?

Although unique favours and elaborate gift ideas are all the rage, we at our luxury serviced apartments in Mayfair believe that tokens of love should always remain both thoughtful and classic. With this in mind, we bring you some failsafe Valentine’s Day gift ideas for those heading to the capital looking for a gift this February 14th


There is nothing more romantic than receiving a beautiful, handpicked set of underwear. Think less trusty old Marks & Spencer and more high end for Valentine’s Day. Some suggestions in the local area include: Agent ProvocateurRigby & PellerCaroline Randell and Lucile. Just remember to take a sneak peek at your Valentine’s sizing before purchasing as underwear is non-refundable.


From a single red rose to a bunch of pale pink tulips, keep it classic when it comes to floral gestures of love. Our serviced apartments in Mayfair are surrounded by plenty of gorgeous florists for you to choose from. From the Appleyard and Jane Packer to Pulbrook & Gold and Wild Things, you will quite literally have the pick of the bunch during your stay with us this Valentine’s Day.


From Charbonnel et Walker and Alexeeva Jones to Rococo and La Maison du Chocolat, Mayfair is full of high end chocolatiers to choose from. As dark chocolate is an aphrodisiac, why not try gifting your lover with this instead of milk chocolate for a nice twist on this Valentine’s classic.


If diamonds really are a girl’s best friend, then it’s probably fair to say jewellery is a failsafe option. With gorgeous silver and gold options available from the range of jewellers in our local area, we recommend browsing Bentley & SkinnerHouse of GarrardAdler or Jooal to find bespoke pieces for the lucky lady in your life.
