Our guide to the perfect valentine's day gift for the CA in your life.

1. Champagne on demand

There is nothing quite like a glass of fizz when you are celebrating. With this in mind, why not take your special someone to London’s Bob Bob Ricard restaurant in the heart of Soho this valentine’s.


Not only does this eatery boast a stunning interior and a mouth-watering menu, every table has its own ‘Press for Champagne’ button, which has made the restaurant famous for pouring more champagne than any other in the UK.


2. A weekend break in Europe

With Europe on the UK’s doorstep and a smorgasbord of cheap flights on offer today’s traveller is spoiled for choice when it comes to romantic weekends away.

Eiffel Tower

Spend an afternoon biking along the canals in Amsterdam, take in the stunning architecture of the Sagrada Família in Barcelona, or kiss under the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

The world is your oyster.

3. Wine subscription

This gift is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of any wannabe wine connoisseurs.

My Viti Box is just one of many great wine subscription services available for wine lovers.


Each month My Viti Box will send two bottles of wine, selected by an expert sommelier, along with an information booklet about the wines including tasting notes.

Enjoy your specially selected wine with your better half or show off to your friends by holding a wine-tasting party.

4. Wine decanter

You’ve got them the subscription so why not top the gift off in style with a gorgeous wine decanter.


Stick with the valentine’s theme by opting for the Riedel Bliss 'Heart' Decanter, available from John Lewis.

5. Inspirational mug

There comes a point in most people’s work day when they need a little extra boost to get them through those last couple of hours.

That usually means a trip to the kitchen to put on a brew or a strong cup of coffee.


Why not give the CA in your life a pun-based reminder, with this personalised mug from Super Mug, to help them be audit they can be…

6. A home-cooked meal

Sometimes the simple things in life are the best. Yes, flashy jewellery and expensive gadgets are impressive, but they can’t beat a bit of thoughtfulness, to show you care.


Why not book a half day, stop by the shops on the way home and pick up the ingredients to cook your better half’s favourite meal?

Skip the overcrowded, overpriced restaurants and opt for a candle lit night in with your loved one instead.

7. Don’t forget the card  

No valentine’s day would be complete without a cheesy card to help profess your undying love. And, as this card from online store Zazzle proves, accounting can be romantic too.


If you prefer to send an e-card why not opt for one from Axa's range of finance-themed cards that can be shared on a number of social media platforms. Nothing lets the CA in your life know how much you mean to them than a digitally-shared card that reads ‘I’ll never lose interest in you.’

Happy valentine’s day!
