Always Time for Romance

Some of us may be suffering from a post-wedding season come down, and with Valentine’s Day a whole half a year away, it’s time to spread a little love into September. Whatever your budget, however busy you are, there’s no excuse to neglect the little things in love. There’s nothing more romantic than ‘just because’, so take a look at our top tips for a little love rekindling.




Keep all your romantic memories safe in a personalised scrapbook as a spontaneous present. Whether it is ticket stubs, old birthday cards, photos or special little memories, they’ll be glad that you’ve preserved them. It’s easy to find unique and customisable scrapbooks on Etsy, waiting for you to fill them.


This custom scrapbook by Claire Magnolia is handcrafted in a range of sumptuous fabrics such as velvet, silk and satin. The delicate velvet ribbon can be inscribed with a personal message or the name of your loved one for that personal touch. This luxurious scrapbook for classy, elegant tastes.


BeautyBoundBooks offer a traditional, vintage scrapbook alternative. Each book is bound by hand by an individual artisan, and is spaced to allow room for bulk. These scrapbooks have that homely touch which can be treasured for years to come.


LisandreCrafts leather scrapbook looks like a treasure found at the bottom of an eighteenth century chest. This book is made to be filled with love poems, and romantic little thoughts. If you want to go that extra mile, dab the first page with their favourite perfume or a scent which reminds them of a special time together.

Obviously, you’ll never quite be able to recreate the dizzying and exciting experience of your honeymoon. However mini moons, seen popping up all over the papers, are a great alternative. Mini moons are a whirlwind getaway experience just for the two of you to enjoy. It’s a great opportunity to tune out everyday life and tune back in with your partner.


Take them on the romantic trip of a lifetime, and run away together on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express for a mini moon to remember. Enjoy fine dining, divine views and secluded cabins decorated in an ornate style. After your plush journey through the Alps you’ll find yourself in Venice, where more romance undoubtedly awaits.




An age old romantic surprise is jewellery; wrapped up in delicate tissue and hidden in their everyday lives for the ultimate surprise. Nona’s jewellery collection set with white, apricot and smoky cubic zirconia is the perfect ‘just because’ gift because of their elegant design, which is suitable for any occasion. The earrings hold a beautiful cluster of gemstones which will add a touch of radiance and shimmer to your evening look, without being overpowering.


Nona’s accompanying sterling silver ring comfortably folds itself around the wearer’s finger like it was made especially for them. The bracelet’s graceful design is meant to be worn with the long flowing fabrics of an evening gown, and its autumnal colours are apt for the upcoming season. Complete the set with this idiosyncratic necklace which will easily compliment a casual outfit with its smooth, hypnotising shape and calming appearance.



How do you keep your romance alive?
