Say it with candlesticks!

With supermarket aisles filling up with heart-shaped, rose-adorned chocolates and love tokens, whether you’re loved up or not, Valentine’s Day is hard to miss. And if you are trying to treat a special someone, these days it’s getting harder and harder to be original. Do you go down the traditional route of flowers and cards or try your hand at rustling up a romantic dinner for two? Or are you among those hundreds of people who leave it until 6pm on 13th February…?

Our solution? Say it with candlesticks. And of all our sterling silver designs, the XY Candlesticks are ideal for this kind of social semaphore…

All you have to do is decide which position will best reflect what’s in your heart… Still not sure? Luckily you’ve got plenty to choose from! Here are a few suggestions:

The Horse-Shoe: age-old symbol of good luck for newly weds, this should set the scene for reminiscing together about your special day


The Rose-Bud: an intimate arrangement that completely encloses and intertwines the two candles


The Flower Ensemble: the two candle holders kiss at the front in this symmetrical arrangement that incorporates the traditional red roses


Cupid’s Bowl: this horizontal arrangement allows for dewy-eyed glances at your beloved across the candlelit table with the two candles meeting in the centre of the bowl

Don’t forget, the XYs are designed with removable drip-pans so you can change from one arrangement to another as the evening progresses.

So say it with candlesticks. Who cares about the food.
