Love is in the air! The day that cupid makes his most famous appearance shooting arrows left, right and centre, with couples acting besotted with each other everywhere is almost upon us! Whether you have a love/hate relationship with Valentines Day, it is undeniably the perfect excuse to celebrate the most important people in your life and those you care about. And this year, well…let’s just say we are all in need of a bit of extra love!
When it comes to February 14th, it’s the daunting prospect of giving a gift that can really leave you scratching your head especially if your annual routine of Ferrero Rocher and M&S flowers just isn’t going to cut it this year. If like me, it has always been your responsibility to buy on behalf of the boss (shhhh…don’t tell anyone!) the added pressure to pick that perfect something can leave you absolutely stumped.
Now there are not many secrets I would normally let you in on however in the spirit of Valentines Day and as The Assistant Room is celebrating its 1st Birthday on the 4th February (currently pinching myself…) I am ready to disclose my secret weapon when it comes to gifting whether that’s for the upcoming 14th February or in general any occasion whatsoever.
From the world-renowned store, the Corporate Service at Harrods team lead by the amazing Tracy Finn is dedicated to providing a creative gifting strategy for businesses to thank an individual or a team for a job well done, strengthen relations with a client or simply toast success.

Harrods – Urban Retreat
Signature Morrocan Hammam Experience

The Georgian At Harrods
Champagne Afternoon tea experience for two
The epitome of elegant dining, Harrods’ Georgian Restaurant is as much of an institution as the store itself. You will be seated at an impeccable table before then being served a luxurious version of the quintessentially British treat: a range of finger sandwiches, tea pastries, fresh scones with clotted cream, fragrant rose-petal jelly, tangy lemon curd and sweet strawberry preserve.
These will be accompanied by the unlimited loose-leaf tea of your choice, to be taken from Harrods’ extensive menu; including the finest teas from around the world, each blend on offer has been specially selected by Harrods’ tea experts and a flute of Rosé Champagne.
For the trail-blazer
For the ultimate foodie
It’s definitely worth mentioning that with clients all over the world, the Corporate Service team is prepared for every celebration, festival or occasion sourcing appropriate gifts to suit the moment including Chinese New Year, Easter, Eid, Diwali, Hanukkah or Christmas. So when I say that they are an amazing option for sourcing this years Valentines Day gifts, it would be a whopper of a mistake to only stop there with them!
The Corporate Service team can also manage Harrods Corporate Rewards accounts and will arrange the dispatch of gifts within the UK and internationally for you acting as an ongoing point of contact for any requirement. Their award-winning team will fulfil every request with imaginative ideas and have always exceeded expectations in my experience.
From a PA’s perspective, these guys are a dream. The time spent on arranging gifts for any occasion and if on a regular basis really can consume a lot of time so why not let an expert take responsibility for this task and really, yes you know Harrods will be dealing but will the boss? Queue a pay rise!
If you want to contact the Corporate Service team at Harrods directly for more info on how they can help you or to discuss business gift requirements, you can drop them an email on firstname.lastname@example.org or if you’re feeling brave, give them a call +44 (0)20 7225 5994!
Wishing you all an incredible Valentines Day 2017 and for a happy and easy life with Corporate gifting from this point forwards!
