As I walk through the streets of Truro, I first approach Inhabit, which has a marvelous welcoming heart decorated shop window looking out into Green Street.  I browse in wonder and am struck by the owl sock pockets ‘love birds’ which are so original, however I am also drawn to the fabulous range of purses, wallets and traditional satchels.


Lorelei, a divine card shop has an incredible range of Valentine day themed wrapping paper and the essential card.  Pure Silver Design’s front of shop has a smattering of hearts and a piece of jewellery can be such a special gift.  Other traditional Valentine gifts could come from Lush or the Bodyshop, bubbles – fragrant cream and pampering.  Or simply heart shaped chocolates from Thorntons or PennyworthsThe Cornish Food Box, along with Halzephron do splendid taylor made food hampers – always a good way to someones heart!

Emma’s Home has a rich selection of items for sale, stocked with Kath Kidson essential bags and matching accessories.  I am delighted to see the large photo frames, where I can imagine placing my family pictures in.  The scarves and trinkets are thoughtful and would make for a perfect Valentine’s gift (even if you have to buy it for yourself!).  Valentine’s Day is to remember to tell someone how much you love them.  However, I feel you should do this every day, as life is too short. Have a look at Rosewood – The Truro Florist, I am sure they will put something special together for you!
