Valentine's Day Inspiration

Whether you’re treating a partner, friend, parents, children or another special person in your life, Ealing Broadway has all you need to help share the love this Valentine’s Day.

From a romantic meal and movie to candles, chocolate and more, here’s our top pick of Valentine’s ideas for 2022.


Spending quality time together

Spend your evening with a visit to one of our restaurants which offer plenty of choice for Valentine’s dinners and drinks. From tasty curries to steak and chips, there’s something to suit everyone’s taste.

Get in touch with restaurants such as Castano Lounge or Turtle Bay directly to find out more and reserve a table. Bread Street Café is also perfect for a special Valentine’s menu, with cocktail canapes and three courses to choose from.

Or if you’re planning to spend the evening at home, you can’t go amiss with M&S’ Valentine’s Dine In Package which comes with a starter, main and dessert.


Classic gifts

Chocolates and flowers are popular choices that bring a smile at any time of year, and especially on Valentine’s Day.

Find a range of Valentines flowers at M&S and Tesco, from traditional red roses, to other springtime favourites like lilies and tulips.

Woman recieving gifts from various hands

Pair a bouquet with a box of chocolates from Leonidas , and a teddy bear from Card Factory or Clinton Cards too – and don’t forget the Valentine’s card.


Something extra special

There’s plenty of extra special gifts to pick up at Ealing Broadway for your nearest and dearest.

Find a watch at H.Samuel , a range of clothes and accessories at stores such as H&M and River Island, or a piece of Valentine’s jewellery. Pandora has a range of charms to personalise your gift or find a pair of matching bracelets or rings for you and your loved one.

Find some of the best perfumes and aftershaves from brands including Paco Rabanne and Yves Saint Laurent at Beauty Base and Boots. Or find a pair of new shoes from designers such as Adidas, at Foot Locker or Clarks with everything from trainers and loafers to high heels and Ugg boots.

Make getting up that little bit easier with a new coffee machine from Argos – and don’t forget to keep their pod supply topped up!

Or, take a trip to our Pop Up Art Gallery, located next to Tesco and browse a range of original contemporary art, handmade jewellery, cards and gifts from 12 local artists.


Tech they’ll love

Wireless earphones or headphones are a great idea for people who love to listen to music on a commute, run or just for fun. Look out for those with noise-cancelling features to help enjoying music without interruption and – more practically – to help if they’re joining calls in a busy house while working from home.

A new or upgraded fitness watch from Argos is also a great idea to help fitness enthusiasts of all levels track their daily exercise, workouts and steps.

And if you’re looking for Valentine’s gamer gifts, Argos stock a wide range for every taste, with some new releases including Call of Duty Vanguard, Battlefield 2042 and Just Dance 2022.


Or how about…

And if nothing has taken your fancy just yet, a unique Valentine’s Day gift that feels very personal is sure to be a hit.

Whether it’s a book from Waterstones, or something related to a particular hobby or interest they have like Lego, Disney, or Harry Potter, available from Primark – these make great gifts for showing them how well you know them.

You could also print out one of your favourite photos together at Boots with a frame from The Curated Collective. Or look out for matching mugs which are also cute additions to the home.


And don’t forget to give yourself some love

Valentine’s Day is all about sharing the love, and that should include yourself too! So, if you’ve had your eye on something new for your wardrobe or a special addition to the home, now’s the perfect time to treat yourself and get it.

Or give yourself some love with a pamper evening with face masks, bath bombs, creams and more. Head to The Body Shop or Superdrug for some inspiration and pick up a new book from WH Smith or Waterstones to prepare for the perfect relaxing evening.
