Valentines day continue the loving feeling and support local independent businesses this year

Although we might usually strive to use this time of year to support small businesses and find unique gifts for those we care about, lockdown 3.0 has left us with limited options.

Many romantic minds may find themselves last minute panic buying and succumbing to using quick delivery corporate giants such as Amazon.

As Valentine's Day has now arrived, we're urging everyone to carry that loving feeling forward throughout the year and support small businesses. Here's our guide to some independents you should check out...

1. Wongs Jewellers

This family-run jewellery store has delighted customers from Liverpool and beyond with its stunning handmade jewellery since 1979.

Owner, Brian Wong, has over 50 years’ experience in crafting bespoke jewellery with amazing attention to detail.

Although the store is mostly known for their stunning engagement and wedding rings, they also have a selection of Valentine’s Day gifts suiting any budget, starting from just £30.

2. Planet Doughnut

Although their store is based in Shrewsbury, Planet Doughnut also deliver to the North West in Manchester, Liverpool and Chester.

With their Liverpool deliveries taking place on Sundays, you could have a fresh box of tasty doughnuts turn up on your loved one’s (or your own) doorstep in time to enjoy on Valentine’s Day.

They even have a selection of vegan doughnuts too so everyone can enjoy a sweet treat. Order the Planet Doughnut DIY doughnut box for a fun 'val/pal/gal-entines' activity.

3. 92 Degrees Coffee Subscription

Nothing says “I love you” like a hot cup of great quality coffee first thing in the morning. With 92 degrees famous blends, you can enjoy their infamous blends from home at any time by purchasing one of their subscriptions.

Choices include the Hope Street blend, where the roastery first started the cult favourite in the Georgian Quarter several years ago. Pair it with one of the brand’s reusable keep cups so your loved one can enjoy a cup of joe on the go.

4. Baby Jungle Plants Liverpool

This amazing mini-indoor jungle usually resides within Ten Streets Market on Cotton Street, however they are offering a delivery service as well as collection over lockdown.

They have a variety of house plants, dried flowers, and home ornaments for your green-fingered valentine – their huge selection makes a bunch of red roses look boring in comparison.
