Calling all love birds! It's that time of year again where the sun shines a little brighter, the birds sing a little sweeter and you're overwhelmed with love for that special someone. Sure they can be a pain in the ass at times but isn't that what love is?! So go on and surprise your cherished one with something a little different this Valentine's Day. Here at Maia we have hand-picked the sweetest (and sometimes funniest) gifts that we believe will go down a treat this February 14th.

For your Juliet:

Maia is filled with cute and sentimental gifts so you can't really go wrong in our little gem of a store however getting it right can be hard so we thought we'd highlight a few of our favourites just for you lucky customers! Why not go traditional this valentine's day with our range of 'Beemine Candle Sets'. Fill the air with the smell of sweet floral roses, all with the knowledge that 3% of the profits from Beemine go to conserving the bee population. Now that's sharing your love with the world! Speaking of rose's we have a wonderful collection of real flower jewellery, yes real flowers! Nothing says your undying love to that special someone than our “Long Stem Rose Necklace”, a miniature rose placed in resin to ensure it remains as perfect as the day you got it. Now roses are romantic and all but can be slightly outdated for the modern woman so why not present her with a Katie Loxton 'Love Love Love'Heringbone scarf which will be a sweet reminder all year round of how much you really value her. Love comes in all shapes and sizes and that means sometimes the smallest gifts can have the most meaning and that's true for our “Love Wish Bottle” which allows you to write a message to your sweetheart this valentine's making it completely unique and heartfelt (and gives you bonus points with the Miss!).

For the Romeos:

Yes, even men like being reminded how loved they are and what better time to tell them than valentines. So on valentine's morning why not serve him his morning cup of coffee in one of  our best selling Lisa Donati Mugs. You can select from the loving“  Partner in Crime” to the more tongue in cheek “Fannybaws” mug (cause after all he is your little fannybaws). Sometimes simple is best, so why not simply say it with this “Together is my favourite place” cushion, will make perfect edition to the living room or bedroom (keep it clean people!). Now valentine's day usually features cuddly toys however this year we're giving it a superhero touch our range of Itty Bittys, especially our 'Yoda Itty Bitty' because after all your love for him really is out of this world. Now it wouldn't be valentine's at Maia without a wee bit of humour which leads us to our Hot Stuff Grow Own Chilli's” for your own hot stuff of a man (well he was when he had hair at least..).Valentine's Day (where they have to just suck it up and accept your declaration of love no matter how cheesy it is!).

 Party at Singleton

Valentine's day isn't just for the couples, its a day to love yourself and treat yourself to something special regardless if you're a single Pringle!
