Lockdown Valentines Gift Guide 2021

*Ad-Gifted. All opinions are my own.
No one could have imagined this time last year the path the last 12 months have taken. If there has ever been a time that we deserve a treat it is now. Valentines is upon us and whether you have a special someone or not, you can mark the occasion. Treat yourself or someone you love, with one of these beautiful or somewhat delicious treats.

In The Pink This Valentine’s With Mermaid!

Aromatic and refreshing, Mermaid Pink Gin infuses the flavour of fresh Isle of Wight strawberries with the smooth yet complex taste of Mermaid Gin, a blend of lemon zest, grains of paradise and fragrant rock samphire. The latter, foraged from the island’s cliffs, is known locally as ‘Mermaid’s Kiss’, hence the gin’s name! 

Perfectly balanced, subtle yet vibrant, Mermaid Pink is less sweet than most pink gins and has no added sugar. Distilled using strawberries from the island’s Arreton Valley – a rich and fertile place that receives some of the best sunshine levels in the UK – the gin has a gentle pink hue. 

Four Roses – Born Out Of Love 

Few Spirits Better Suited For Valentine’s!

The history of Four Roses Bourbon is a love story from the very heart of Kentucky, the picturesque and historic town of Lawrenceburg – making it the perfect spirit for Valentine’s. 

It began when Paul Jones Jr., the brand’s founder, became smitten by the beauty of a Southern belle. He sent a proposal to her, and she replied that if her answer were “Yes”, she would wear a corsage of four roses on her gown to an upcoming ball – which she duly did.  

And today, roses feature heavily on Four Roses’ Small Batch bourbon – from the cut glass rose in the centre of the label, to the bottle resembling the shape of a rosebud when held upside down!

For this Valentine’s, Four Roses has created a new cocktail – a delicious, celebratory, drink using simple ingredients that can be quickly created with a distanced sweetheart or loved family members and friends. 
The ‘Lawrenceburg’ is a gorgeous, ruby-coloured, blend of Small Batch’s rich spicy flavours with the sweet tang of cranberry juice and the clean, fresh, bite of ginger ale and lime juice.

40ml Four Roses Small Batch. 50ml cranberry juice. 5ml lime juice. 5ml sugar syrup. Ginger beer as required. 

Shake all the ingredients bar the ginger beer with ice. Pour into a glass and top with chilled ginger beer.

There’s plenty more in the sea…

Of course, this is the phrase you offer when a friend loses out on a sweetheart… but Phoebe Buffay is no ordinary friend. She’ll still go down a nautical theme, but she’s not so certain there are plenty of fish to go around… because you only need one.

According to the You Are My Lobster Mug, the love lobsters share is an unbreakable claws (sorry, clause) that sees them together forever. So, don’t be shellfish by dating loads of people: Just get out there and find your lobster! We know one thing is for sure, you’ll definitely find a little lobster once you finish your cuppa, but we can’t guarantee that this one is your soulmate.

If there’s anything else The One With the Prom Video teaches us, it’s that that your old VHS tapes may feature some shoddy haircuts and zany clothes, but they may just help you get the girl!
