Here are 3 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas which our reviewer team has tried and tested.
Krug Baümen Air Traveller Black Dial Black Strap 400206DS
When the Krug Baümen Air Traveller Black Dial Black Strap 400206DS gentleman’s watch first arrived, the presentation of the watch in a nice gift box was a pleasant surprise. The instructions for the date and time were and chronograph were straightforward. The only downfall was the amount of time it took me to put it on, as there were no instructions with regards the fastening mechanism. I then worked out that I could press the sides of the fastening mechanism and lift it, and this allowed me to put the watch on (you can watch a video on how to adjust the strap here). This watch is described as a “Gentlemen’s Sports Split Time Chronograph with Tachymeter function and Slide Rule with a 3 eye chronograph display. The stainless-steel head is finished with polished IPG (Gold) plate for a stunning look. Genuine leather strap with personalised IPG plated buckle”.
The watch looks great, really smart and looks good with anything which I wear. Being a builder, I don’t tend to wear the watch for work, so put it on straight after my shower every night.
Once on my wrist, it is really comfortable to wear and I have received compliments about the watch. It is very secure once fastened and in place on my wrist, so I am not worried about losing it or it falling off. With it being water resistant I have been able to wash up whilst wearing it. I do not want to risk going in the shower while wearing it.
The gift box even contains a diamond certificate saying that this time piece has genuine diamonds set in a normal dial (features 8 single cut diamonds). With a RRP of £339 it is currently selling for £169.50, saving 50%, on watches2u.com.
The watches2u.com website has a great selection of male and female watches to choose from, to suit all budgets whether a treat for yourself or as a gift for a special someone. With this watch, the price you pay is what you get. i.e. you pay for quality and style. This would make a really nice Valentine’s Day Gift for that special someone in your life.
I rate this watch 4/5 and would recommend to a friend.

Waitrose Champagne Rose
I was delighted to receive this Waitrose Champagne Rose to review. The bottle looked simple yet stylish. It had the allergy information clearly displayed, which was a relief for my friend who has a gluten intolerance. The bottle was easy to open. We both enjoyed the taste of this champagne. It did cause some laughter as it was very bubbly/gassy. I opted to have it without lemonade, my friend enjoyed it as a spritzer, but also tried it without as well.
Made from 100% Pinot Noir grape and 12.5% Alcohol Volume this 75cl bottle of champagne is really good value at £24.99 and is currently on offer for £19.99 (until 21/02/2017).

Adnams White Burgundy, Cuvée Paul Talmard
This 75cl bottle of Adnams White Burgundy was elegant but simple in design. I enjoyed this wine round my friend’s house at the weekend. It tasted lovely, not too dry or too sweet and has an alcohol volume of 13%. It was nice both with lemonade as a spritzer or without it. At £9.99 it is really good value (£107.88 for a case of 12).
Rating: 5/5 | Available to buy from Adnams here.
All of the items mentioned above would make the perfect Valentine’s Day Gift, gift for another special occasion or maybe just to treat yourself.
