Good value Valentines
Windows are being filled with stunning displays of balloons and flowers, chocolates and jewellery as Jesmond’s retailers prepare for the annual festival of love.
For a gift straight from the heart, try Gourmet Gifts on Acorn Road, where there is an array of heart shaped delights, and simply delightful trinkets, plates and champagne glasses, all decorated with messages of love and devotion. With a range of handmade and speciality cards on offer, from jigsaw hearts to simple handcrafted designs, from as little as £1.19, there is something to suit most budgets and relationships.
Wooly Blue, on Brentwood Avenue, which re-opened last month, has a lavish array of loveheart themed furnishing gifts in its colonial window, including cushions and throws delicately embossed with hearts and love messages.
Me Me Me jewellery and accessories on Clayton Park Square is now stocking a limited edition Valentine’s Pandora charm. The Pandora Silver Love Me Charm with 14k gold and red enamel has a double heart-shaped pendant and is available online and in store for £45.
Alternatively (or in addition), treat your Valentine to a treatment at one of Jesmond’s salons and parlours – such as a full-body, hot stones massage at Jesmond Beauty Clinic for £66, or a chocolate facial at Julie Carter for £69.
If you’re quick, you could pop along to Lebeado on Acorn Road for its Boys, Beer and Beading Evening this Tuesday to create a personal piece of jewellery for your Valentine. The fun starts at 6pm on Tuesday 9th February and will include a range of discounts and offers available for all men attending.
