Yes, we know we're still in January, but Valentine's Day is fast approaching. You can never go wrong with being organised in advance and this year, luxury department store Fortnum & Mason is the place to shop for gifts if you're in need of inspiration.
From hampers filled with Champagne, truffles and chocolate to novelty pork pies, there's a huge selection of delicious, fun and fabulous treats to show a token of appreciation to your partner.
Best of all, the famous London department store has bought back its limited edition 'I Love You' pork pies, which first launched in 2020 and due to popular demand have been part of the Valentine’s range ever since.
Costing £29.95, it's a decadent treat that you both can share on 14th February, filled with 100% British Lincolnshire Pork and encased in rich, crumbly pastry and recommended for sharing between up to four people.
There's also another Valentine's Pork Pie which is less pricey at £7.95, with a cute heart pastry lid and is recommended for sharing between two people.
It's not the first department store to offer edible Valentine's gifts either – Marks & Spencer launched a novelty 'love sausage' last year, made from pork with a hint of truffle and wrapped in bacon, nicely shaped into a love heart.
Fortnum & Mason's hampers start from £80 and feature an impressive stash of cheeses, booze, biscuits, and a whole lot of love, so if you're feeling romantic, make sure you snap one up.
We've handpicked our top-rated sweet and savoury foodie gifts for 2023 to shop now, all that's left for you to do is buy a card.
The best Fortnum & Mason Valentine's Day gifts
Delivered in a wicker basket that's perfect for summer picnics later in the year, this features melt-in-the-mouth Belgian milk chocolate coated raspberries, heart-shaped caramels, honey and lavender shortbread and Valentine’s tea. What's not to love?
The Lovestruck Hamper | £100
A peek inside this delicious hamper is sure to whet your appetite. With honey and lavender shortbread, Valentine's tea, strawberry and rose preserve, vegan truffles and chocolate-coated raspberries, it's a feast we can't wait to tuck into.
The Utterly Smitten Hamper | £160
Romance of course calls for Champagne, so make this Valentine’s Day extra special with this hamper. Alongside a bottle of bubbles, you can also enjoy a whole host of treats, ranging from chocolate-coated raspberries, Piccadilly chocolate pearl biscuits, strawberry and Champagne preserve and a heart chocolate selection box.
This indulgent hamper is still more cost-effective than buying all the contents individually. There are two bottles of fine wine (a Bordeaux Blanc and a Beaujolais), chocolates, truffles, shortbread, jams, stuffed olives, cream cheese and Stilton cheese straws.
You can't go wrong with this classic cream tea selection box, with everything you need for an afternoon sipping Champagne and eating scones. Kickstart the celebrations with pink Champagne truffles, chocolate pearl biscuits, followed by clotted cream, strawberry preserve and almond brownies. Bon appetit!
