Valentine’s Day is here once again, Hooray! Choosing your desired shopping location is the first decision before venturing out to complete your gifting mission. If you are well prepared this year or prefer a last-minute spree, arrange a visit to Ards Shopping Centre, where you can find a wide variety of stores under one roof – yes only one stop required & free parking!

Whether your theme is traditionally cheesy or significantly unique, Ards Shopping Centre has the perfect gifts in store for your special someone. When choosing Valentine’s Day gifts chocolates, hearts & flowers are a sentimental way of expressing your love on the special day but why not pull out all the stops this year by showing your other half why you love them.

If you were drawn to their stylish wardrobe, charming scent, or love of coffee, you can capture it perfectly with the right gift.

Browsing along the colourful aisles of Tk Maxx, Primark & The Perfume Shop, to name a few, I have chosen a must have list below that includes all you need this Valentine’s Day to make it THE occasion to remember this year. P.s with Starbucks, Costa & Subway your shopping trip will be fueled by the best. Who says Shopping can’t double up as selfcare eh!


TK Maxx – Fulfil your treasure seeking dreams in TK Maxx, home of all well-known brands in home wear, fashion and accessories.
