The decadence, the scrummy nibbles, the bubbles - everything about afternoon tea at The Dorchester oozes romance and charm. And they're putting on a special Valentine's Champagne version from Saturday 12 to Monday 14 February, which includes, of course, fabulous fizz, as well as specially-created pastries and a surprise gift. There are five sittings, which take place at: 1.15pm, 2.30pm, 3.15pm, 4.45pm, and 5.15pm. We might just book it as a present to ourselves!

OK, smellies might not be the most original idea, but we don't know a girl who wouldn't be made-up with a set of Molton Brown goodies. It's all in the brand you know, boys. Their Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod Body Lotion, Bath & Shower Gel, and Bathing Milk, will make a soak in the tub that little bit more special.
