Valentine’s Day is fast approaching so the Citywealth team has pulled together a list of lockdown treats and gifts to show your special somebody you care.


For the foodies

Fortnum & Mason have an exquisite selection of Valentine- themed hampers. The Lovestruck Hamper, £100, features Rose Biscuits to pair with a delicate Rose Pouchong and floral Valentine’s Blend Tea followed by all the sweet treats: a Heart Selection Box, Marzipan Hearts and chocolate coated raspberries; while the Valentine’s Champagne Breakfast Box, £145, contains everything you need to impress with breakfast in bed.

For those on a smaller budget, The Kir Royale Box, £57.50 will be sure to impress.

If you happen to be living in London within the M25, restaurant COYA has launched a Valentine’s menu in collaboration with BYREDO to be delivered to your door. The finish-at-home sharing menu includes dishes such as Tostada de Atun - love bites of corn tostada, albacore tuna, seaweed salad and spicy mayo, the reviving Vuelve a la Vida - seabass, octopus, prawns, mussels, aji rocoto and avocado, Bife Angosto de Wagyu - Chilean wagyu rib-eye with crispy shallots, aji limo and star anise followed by Chupe de Langosta - featuring lobster carapulcra, a take on the traditional Andean hot stone stew and aji amarillo. The menu will also be accompanied by a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne and a Cupid’s Arrow cocktail.

To complete the experience, guests can enjoy the subtle scent of delicate rose from BYREDO’s Rose Hand Wash, with opening notes of pink pepper and raspberry and combined with a base of papyrus wood and white amber to create a sophisticated, long-lasting scent that lingers. 

Available for delivery via reservations team by email or telephone 020 7042 7118. Orders to be placed before 6pm on Wednesday 10th February for delivery between 9am - 6pm Saturday 13th February. Priced at £260 which includes delivery for two people; delivery within M25.
