Valentines Day in Grimsby and Cleethorpes

Valentine Cards


If you haven’t heard of Fran Young yet, then where have you been? Her unique Grimsby and Cleethorpes-inspired pieces adorn many a local household, for all the right reasons and this year she has released some brand new cards, especially for Valentine’s Day. Each is – of course – in Fran’s classic pink style.¬†

Valentine Gift Ideas

Traditional Gift Ideas

Nothing defines Valentines Day quite like a beautiful bunch of flowers. Whether your gal pal or partner loves the classic and more traditional red rose or something a bit different, we are lucky to have a number of small businesses in Grimsby and Cleethorpes that will help you find the perfect blooms to really make someone’s day incredibly special.

My personal floral recommendations are:



A staple seller at The Original Emporium, Stem & Co grew their empire and opened the most adorable little jungle shop at 22 Sea View Street, Cleethorpes just before Christmas. 

Check out the¬†Stem & Co website to see some of the gorgeous flowers she has on offer, or why not pop into her shop? I guarantee you won’t leave empty-handed.

*WARNING – I cannot guarantee that you will leave with just something for your beau…


I first discover SeaHolly when I purchased some absolutely stunning sunflowers from her at a market back during COVID, and she ended up being my first customer when I launched the Made in Grimsby Merch (Abigail purchased a magnet, that I no longer sell).

To purchase some flowers check out the SeaHolly Instagram page


If flowers aren’t quite your thing, but you still want to opt for a traditional option, then how about a stunning piece of jewellery? No matter your budget, or their personal taste, Grimsby and Cleethorpes has a huge variety of jewellery.

Sometimes images say much more than words, and I definitely think that is the case with jewellery, so enjoy these beauties… (click the images to find out more about each seller).







Everyone [almost] loves chocolates, and I hear these are addictive. So treat your sweet toothed love with these perfect Valentines offers.
