Valentine's Day Gift Guide | #ShopLocal

8 February 2019
February is the month of love but I want to show you that it can be done locally and on a budget whilst supporting local businesses in the area. Everything you need for Valentine's Day is right on your doorstep, and you can surprise your loved one this Valentine's Day with something super special and unique from just around the corner.

Here are a selection of my gift ideas if you're lacking inspiration, this might help give you an idea of where to find the perfect gift this weekend, in time for Thursday 14th February - by the way, that's this Thursday!

With everything from chocolates to chopping boards, Goodwin & Belle in Uppingham will have something perfect for the lady or gent in your life this Valentine's Day. I particularly fell in love with these 'Terms of Endearment Notes' which are perfect to pop in a Valentine's Card to show your loved one how special they are.

If you're a Barclays customer, your local branches are now Oakham, Stamford and Corby. 

While banking services will be available over the counter at The Post Office, we'll also lose the ATM at Barclays on High Street West meaning the quick cash withdrawal locations will be Budgen's, COOP, McColls, One Stop and the Market Place ATM.

The branch on High Street West will close on Friday 26th April.

The Barclays poster encourages customers that 'there are still so many ways to do your banking essentials - in person, online and over the phone - or you can visit your local Post Office'.
