You’ll learn more about the community-based project, Bee Urban, while sampling honey fermented beers and ales.
If he prefers gin to beer, tantalize his taste buds and blow his mind on Valentine’s Day with a bottle of Warner’s Distillery’s Honeybee Gin.

After learning how to expertly transform simple ingredients into scrumptious dishes, you can battle it out in your kitchen at home with who can make the most impressive Valentine’s Day dish.

Lobster And Steak
Let’s face it, Valentine’s Day is going to be chilly in London. And what do we need to stay warm? Really, just two things. A cosy space and, of course, food. A bit of whisky doesn’t hurt either. If your man loves his meat, then treat him to this Scottish Highlands-meets-contemporary “Coo & Claw’ menu with cosy wooden beams and leather. Perfect for that romantic V-Day date night.
SodaStream One Touch Sparkling Water Machine
Unless they have a carbonator at home, lovers of soda water know how quickly all those supermarket bottles of the stuff can add up, and then there’s all that single-use plastic. If your partner can’t get enough soda water, give him a Valentine’s Day gift that will make his life a little easier (and cut down on the plastic use), with the SodaStream One Touch Sparkling Water Machine.

Brookstone Friendship Lamp
If you and the man in your life don’t live together, a Brookstone Friendship Lamp would be a Valentine’s Day gift for him that gives new meaning to the sentiment that it’s the thought that counts! Purchase a set of two Wi-Fi-enabled lamps, keep one for yourself, and give one to him. Whenever he’s on your mind, touch your lamp, and his will light up. All together now: Ahhhhh!
Chocolate Tasting Tour
Just because you shouldn’t buy him a measly box of chocolates doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get him chocolate at all. After all, it is the quintessential Valentine’s Day gift. Keep your man curious by surprising him with a chocolate-tasting adventure through the historic streets of Chelsea and Belgravia.
Personalised Wooden Take Away Dice
Does your partner know the struggle of trying to choose something when you’re treating yourselves to take away food? Make him smile on Valentine’s Day with a gift of personalised wooden take away dice. There’s room for names and 5 different take away options on the laser-engraved six-sided dice.
