Not ready for Valentine’s Day yet?

Valentine's Day

Uh-oh – it’s getting close to Valentine’s Day and you haven’t bought a card or a gift yet? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered at our UOE Stores. Whether you’re buying a Valentine’s card for your partner, children, parents, friends or even pets (people do!), you’re bound to find what you need.

If you’re not going to be able to spend the day with that special person, you’ll already be in the Post Office, so you can buy a stamp and get your card in the post straight away! Have you left everything to the last minute? We wouldn’t want you to get into trouble, so ask us about the ways we can guarantee next-day delivery on your card and gift. 

When it comes to last-minute gifts, we’ve got a wide range of fun and beautiful products they’ll love, from designer stationery to quirky novelties, games, arts and crafts. 

Thinking of popping the question? 

Of course you could do it quietly, but wouldn’t it be better to make a big thing of it? Take advantage of our business services to print photos, make personalised posters asking your loved one ‘Will you marry me?’, or laminate messages to create a treasure hunt in your local area. 

You can also invest in high-quality diaries and planners to help you organise the wedding. You may also want to buy a beautiful Moleskine notebook to help you make notes for the most important day of your life – the guest list, your shortlist of venues, menu options, entertainment ideas, etc. As it’s a special occasion, you might want to invest in a Lamy fountain pen to write your notes with. Hopefully, it’ll help you practise your handwriting so it’s nice and neat for when you sign the marriage certificate! 

Send a card, just because

Always remember that you don’t have to wait until Valentine’s Day to send a nice card to your partner or a friend who means so much to you. We stock a wide range of beautiful cards in which you can write your own special message. Receiving an unexpected card or handwritten letter in the post makes people smile and really brightens up their day. So spread a little sunshine by expressing your love, just because – you don’t need to wait till Valentine’s Day! Whether you want to send a message of love to your partner, tell a friend how much joy they bring into your life, or just want to cheer someone up with a lovely picture, we’ve got a card that’ll fit the bill perfectly. 

Visit your nearest UOE Store for inspiration.
