Celebrating the idea of nice gestures rather than tangible gifts is Together’s Valentines offering – the Together Tokens, which can be used in exchange for gestures such as ‘one day of compliments’, ‘one breakfast with all the trimmings’ and ‘three errands of your choice.’ The tokens are in the style of ration books, and based on the idea that the best things in life are free.The tokens can be downloaded from http://www.facebook.com/TogetherDesign and Together Design will be awarding a bottle of fizz to the best photos or stories letting them know how it goes on twitter @together_design.

Here at DW we’re big fans of animal print – and the Lomography special-edition Animal Prints Valentines camera range ticks all the boxes, adorned in leopard, zebra and snake patterns. We’re not entirely sure what this has to do with Saint V, but they look very lovely nonetheless.

FYI our address is 79 Well Point, Wells Street W1T 3QN. Don’t be shy.
