Show you love her with these Valentine’s Day treats.

Next Saturday is Valentine's Day and while I believe we don't need just one day to celebrate our love, it's a good excuse to spoil your special friend.

Lingerie is a fabulous place to start and it doesn't get any hotter than Bendon's newly launched collection,Heidi Klum Intimates. The Sofia set, pictured, would put a smile on anyone's face.

Sofia Underwire Bra $69.95
Sofia Thong $29.95
Sofia Suspender $49.95
All from Heidi Klum Intimates

Also, from handmade lingerie specialist Goss is a special Valentine's issue of the super chic Christy Bralette and G-String.

Jewellery always works and I love this vintage Yves Saint Laurent Choker from Love and Object. Hearts would flutter at receiving Partridge Jewellers' Aura Ring.

Or go for a traditional favourite with a twist. Eden at The Botanist is a floral genius and she will step away from the expected by creating more unusual bouquets. Jordan Rondel, aka The Caker, is offering mini heart-shaped, gluten-free flourless dark chocolate cakes with stunning decorations especially for Valentine's.

No one could resist M.A.C's Lady Bug lipstick, a red that will look amazing on any skin tone. Dolce & Gabbana's Intense EDP has a scent that is powerful and sensual and Linden Leaves has released a Memories Deluxe gift set to help set the mood.

I would go bananas if my man gave me these McQ by Alexander McQueen Derby loafers ... Hint, hint.

Keeping on the romance tips, start with a bottle of Chambord then add vodka, pineapple juice and handful of ice to a shaker and you'll have the most divine French martini and impress your lover with your cocktail skills.
