Food, Flowers and Fabulousness for Valentines

Because we are physically based on the sunny Isle of Wight, we love to big up our local small businesses. And so, with that in mind here are some Valentine’s ideas for online ordering and delivery from our doorstep to yours…

Food: Chef Robert Thompson presents UBChef – a restaurant menu box of delights that is delivered UK-wide. For Valentine’s Day, he’s offering a five course dinner kit for fishy folk, meat eaters and veggies with an optional cheese course – think salmon, turbot, Isle of Wight chicken and a Gateaux St Honore… All you have to do is heat up and plate up. View the menus and order at

Flowers: Meet the Foxglove Club – a floral subscription service and online florist. Sign up to receive fresh, beautiful, seasonal flowers hand delivered to your door weekly, fortnightly or monthly. They also have a similar scheme for a monthly houseplant – the gift that keeps on giving! Order at Foxglove Club

Fabulousness: This Valentine’s day, pamper a loved one (or yourself!) with a Monique Lucas eye mask and lavender bag. Designed and made in the UK – using organic cotton, eco-friendly inks and filled with Isle of Wight lavender – the Sea of Roses prints are inspired by the flora of the coast. Choose from Orchard Rose, Blue Rose or Red Rose, each beautifully coloured and adorned with a rose illustration, especially apt for February 14th. Order at Monique Lucas Design

Isle of Wight jewellery designer Adrienne Wroath creates contemporary treasures  that explore texture, form and rustic luxury. Designed and handcrafted onsite in her Newport studio, she celebrates the imperfections, traditional methods with an air of the ancient that have tactile quality and are timelessly wearable.
