This isn't a job interview, so unless you're taking a potential employer to dinner this Valentine's Day, there's no need to turn up in a full suit.

But if you're taking your date to a swanky restaurant that even P Diddy would have trouble getting into, this is one of the few occasions where dressing to impress still counts. An upmarket setting demands a smart blazer, like this one, a fresh white shirt, and a strong accessory or two (think patterned pocket squares and a pair of statement socks).

Feeling super-confident and appropriately attired, the next step is to fix your Valentine with a more than appropriate gift. For a quick and easy rundown of the best gifts on site, click here and get ready to receive a whole lot of gratitude.
