From flowers to champers and even a few surprises in between, our Valentine’s Day page will give you plenty of gift ideas for him and her and let you know the best ways to bag a romantic bargain.

Remember, while it's romantic, don't be forced into an over-commercialised day. Of course, you could always make your loved one a handmade gift or simply give them the gift of your time. See our Valentine’s gift cheques to make your other half a promise straight from the heart.

If you are going to be giving gifts, here’s our round-up of the best deals we could find.

A dozen red roses in store


Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without flowers. Unfortunately, this hasn’t escaped the attention of flower retailers, who are reluctant to offer big discounts. Thankfully, we've still managed to find the best offers and lowest prices on a dozen red roses.

WARNING! In past years, some big firms’ Valentine’s Day deliveries have gone wrong. Hopefully it won’t happen but there’s always a risk. Consider that before buying.

Valentine's dine-in deals


They say the way to a man's (or woman's) heart is through their stomach. Yet there’s no need to slave over a hot stove for hours. Best of all, bung the packaging in the bin and pretend you cooked it all from scratch.


Valentine's Day logo£30 free-range meat bundle via code*Costs at least £40ish plus del at supermarkets

2,500 avail

You can get a 'Gourmet Dinners Selection' meat bundle, including duck, sirloin, gammon and more, for £29.95 all-in (£25 plus £4.95 delivery) if you enter the MSE Blagged code MSEFEB online at meat supplier Market Porter*. It's all free-range, outdoor-bred and reared, UK meat.

It’s normally £56 all-in and we found it to be worth at least £40ish plus delivery at supermarkets - so you can make a tasty saving with this deal.

'Gourmet Dinners Selection'

The offer ends at 11.59pm on Tue 28 Feb or when 2,500 bundles go, whichever's sooner. This total is spread across both this and a bigger bundle as well - see below. 

The meat will be vac-packed fresh (not frozen), but can be frozen - Market Porter told us shelf life on receipt will be five days for the duck and a minimum of seven days for everything else (if refrigerated). Sadly it can’t deliver to all postcodes, see 'more info' below.

What's included in the 'Gourmet Dinners Selection' bundle?

This box bought separately elsewhere would (very roughly) cost at least £40ish plus delivery (and you'd need to meet minimum spends online), so we reckon paying £30 all-in with this deal is worth having a butchers at.

We’ve listed what you’ll get below, as well as the price you’d pay for similar from a supermarket. We couldn't find some of these free-range items in supermarkets - for these we've listed a price comparison using other online meat retailers.

  • Two 275g duck breasts (£10.20 at Beechridge Farm online).
  • Two 250g duck legs (£5 at Beechridge Farm online).
  • Two 175g flatiron steaks (£7.40 for 340g at Ocado).
  • Two 227g sirloin steaks (£11 for 500g at Tesco).
  • Two 227g gammon steaks (£3.29 for 200g at Ocado and Waitrose).
  • 227g unsmoked back bacon (£2.61 for 200g at Waitrose).

For details about Market Porter, see 'more info' below.

Want a bigger bundle with steaks included? Get a £73 bundle for £40

If you enter the MSE Blagged code MSELARGE you can get a bigger bundle for £39.95 (£35 plus £4.95 delivery), including all of the above plus the following:

  • 700g lamb rack (£16 at Beechridge Farm).

So, this box bought separately would (very roughly) cost at least £56ish plus delivery.

 

MSE Lucia says:

We've covered a few Market Porter deals and they've had positive feedback from MoneySavers and MSEers. Here are some examples:

MSE Alison said: "MP is now my go-to meat provider. I love the care they take in sourcing their meat and you can really taste the quality. Great produce and great range of cuts."

MSE Josie said: "The whole user journey was easy to navigate, they delivered on time and the meat is just delicious. I’ve even recommended them to my parents!"

Laura tweeted: "My pork loin steaks from @MarketPorterUK were so ridiculously delicious. I cannot wait to eat my other cuts from the MSE deal. Such a treat!" 

Marianne said: "I bought one of your Christmas turkey packages via a discount offer on Martin Lewis' website...What can I say? Everything, from the delivery onwards, was absolutely top notch".

What is Market Porter?

Since spring 2014, Market Porter has worked with free-range British meat producers to deliver meat directly from producer to customer - think of it as a middle-man.

Postcodes that Market Porter is unable to deliver to:

AB10 onwards, DD9 onwards, DG, EH35-46, FK18-21, HS, IV, KA27, KA28, KW, PH10 onwards, TD, ZE, TR21-25, PA20 onwards, Scottish Islands, Channel Islands, Scilly Isles, Northern Ireland & Isle of Man.

Market Porter delivers Tuesday to Saturday, and you can choose your delivery day. You can order meat until 1.30pm for delivery the next day. 

Both codes are limited to one use per person. If you want to buy both bundles, you'll need to do it in two separate orders.

Cheap champagne & prosecco

Restaurant deals

Valentine's gifts for her


Valentine’s gifts shouldn't be about how much you've spent - rather, it's how much thought you’ve put into your present. Here are some offers on beauty, jewellery and more...


Ciate logo £75 Ciaté nail polish collection for £20*15 mini polishes, incl glitter, matte & pearl effects

1 day left

MSE Update, 12pm Wed 15 Feb: Ciaté has decided to extend this offer until the end of the month, or until all 800 sets are sold.

You can get a set of 15 mini (5.5ml) Ciaté nail polishes for £19.95 delivered (norm £75, £5 each), if you sign up/in online at Ciaté* and enter the MSE Blagged code MSESHIPPING.

The deal ends on Tue 14 Feb  Tue 28 Feb or when all 800 sets are sold, whichever's first - so go quick if you want to nail this deal.

The set includes:

  • Speed Coat (clear)
  • Ditch the Heels (turquoise green)
  • Pool Party (bright blue)
  • Dangerous Affair (burgundy red)
  • Mistress (pillar box red)
  • Cupcake Queen (bright pink with blue shimmer)
  • Kiss Chase (coral pink)
  • Amazing Gracie (ballerina pink)
  • Girl with a Pearl (pearl studs in multiple sizes)
  • Sloaney Sweetie (matte dusky pink glitter)
  • Violet Vixen (gold and purple glitter)
  • Ride My Rocket (black, white & silver glitter)
  • Mineral Positivity (matte black & gold glitter)
  • It’s Haute in Here (matte red, white and black glitter)
  • Couture Noir (black & silver strand glitter)

Although you can sometimes find certain individual polishes cheaper than the prices above as part of promotional sets, you'd be hard pushed to find them for £20 all-in.

MSE Rhiannon says:

This is a great set to give as a gift as it is - but you could also separate it into several smaller gifts.

Cheap perfume/aftershave

It's a pretty bog-standard Valentine's gift which you might leave late, but actually you need to act early to grab intoxicating deals.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
