Valentine’s Day Gift Guide…
Love is in the air this month and even us ‘non-romantics’ are more likely to make more of an effort for their partners on 14th February.

Schedule a romantic evening meal for after work, leave a present on the kitchen table?
Something to show our appreciation for our significant other is necessary on this day.
To help with ideas why not check out our 2020 V-Day Gift Guide… there’s something for everyone…
Food and Drink…
Mermaid Pink Gin
Aromatic and refreshing, Mermaid Pink Gin infuses the flavour of fresh Isle of Wight strawberries with the smooth yet complex taste of Mermaid Gin, a blend of lemon zest, grains of paradise and fragrant rock samphire. The latter, foraged from the island’s cliffs, is known locally as ‘Mermaid’s Kiss’, hence the gin’s name!
Perfectly balanced, subtle yet vibrant, Mermaid Pink is less sweet than most pink gins and has no added sugar. Distilled using strawberries from the island’s Arreton Valley – a rich and fertile place that receives some of the best sunshine levels in the UK – the gin has a gentle pink hue.
To create it, the strawberries are steeped in the distillery’s signature gin for four days. Then, half is removed to be distilled and eventually added back to the remaining infusion – lending the gin a refreshing and intensely aromatic, strawberry flavour.
Mermaid Pink is presented in a plastic-free bottle (even the seal is biodegradable) which is 100% recyclable. It is both vegan and gluten-free.
Mermaid Pink Gin 38% ABV. Marks & Spencer, £40.00/70cl. @mermaidginIOW (Twitter) / @mermaidgin (IG) / mermaidspirit.uk
Enjoy an exquisite selection of our award winning handmade chocolates, beautifully gift wrapped.

This replica gin was based on the original 1689 recipe of the spirit made by the Dutch King William III (AKA William of Orange) after he was proclaimed King of England, Ireland and Scotland that very year.
The recipe, which was amazingly uncovered in the British Library’s rare book section, lists the original ingredients but unfortunately, the quantities were concealed by code, which proved unbreakable.
The task of deciding new quantities was given to Herman Jansen in Schiedam, Netherlands, a distillery that dates back to 1777.
Every beer is an opportunity to tell a story about the beauty of botanicals, and Lowlander hope to connect people with the natural wonders of the world by creating more diverse beers full of flavour and character.
White Ale is a style of beer typical of the Dutch Lowlands, but Lowlander wanted to give theirs an appealing twist, keeping the acidic & sour flavours lower and spiking it with both refreshing citrus and fragrant fruit.

Dynamic RF™ technology is based on RF technology but it takes it one step further. The Sensilift device has two electrode fingers that move constantly over your skin and heat the treatment area.

• Unique combination of dynamic RF energy and massage creates a more effective treatment
• Improves natural collagen production

Protect Your Home This Valentine’s Day with the Arlo Pro Range
Valentine’s Day is upon us and with the promise of a romantic dinner for two also lies the rare opportunity for burglars to catch you with your guard down and an unoccupied home.
So why not protect what you love most with home security experts, Arlo. With their easy-to-install Pro range, it’s never been easier to guard your home while you’re out and about.
The Arlo Pro series showcases a number of features including weather-resistant hardware, flexible powering options, long-life and rechargeable batteries as well as smart-home device compatibility. With the most recent product in the range, Arlo Pro 3, you can keep an eye on what matters with the 160° diagonal field of view. Once installed, you can check in on the live video directly from your phone, no matter where you are.
Not only does the wireless camera provide crystal clear, super sharp 2K HDR imagery, the Pro 3 also features colour night vision ensuring the highest quality video, and captures more important details than ever before, even in the dark. With auto-zoom and tracking, the Pro 3 instantly recognises moving objects and digitally adjusts its zoom to focus – and follow – what matters, notifying you directly of any suspicious activity.
For those who prefer not to be interrupted, a Smart subscription allows complete control of notifications. For users taking advantage of the Smart subscription, you can set up activity zones, allowing you to monitor (or ignore) specific areas, so you only receive the notifications you need.
The Smart subscription offers a range of additional features including rich, interactive notifications, specific object (or animal) detection and the ‘Call a Friend’ option for those unable to rush home. With two different subscription plans available, it’s a quick and easy process to ensure maximum home security.
In the unfortunate case of a security breach, the integrated spotlight can be set to trigger automatically, or manually from your phone along with the built-in Smart Siren; warding off suspicious characters and keeping your home safe and sound.
The Arlo Pro range is available now from £549.99 (2 camera kit) at www.arlo.com. Smart subscription pricing starting from £2.49 per month.
