Some gift ideas for Valentines this year...
February, where did you come from?! It's really that time again already! If you're celebrating Valentines this year, I've got some great gift picks for him and for her which can help you out a little if you're struggling with ideas.
I love Valentines Day, not for the gimmicks and overpriced restaurants, but it's just a day to show your loved ones how much you care, or to spend some quality time together. Whether that be your other half, or your children, it's just a day you can dedicate to having that special quality time that you don't usually get the time for in the midst of busy family life. I'm currently making my little boys a Valentines basket and I can't wait to give it to them, it's going to be so cute!
Now, onto some cute gift ideas, keep reading for some inspiration...
Something to wear...
It's always nice to feel pretty and feminine, especially on day such as Valentines day when you might be having a date night and some quality time with your partner. The Bobette Lingerie Set from Rosa Faia is gorgeous and very sexy, it comes in black and a stunning ruby red that compliments every skin tone. Another gorgeous pick is these Silk Pyjamas from IDENTITY LINGERIE which are silky soft and a dream to wear. The best thing about these picks is that they can be worn all year around, they're both beautiful.
For him, I've picked out the Burgundy Original Tee from Fields Apparel, this is a unisex tee but I know it's right up my partners street and he will look fab in it. The burgundy colour is very fitting for Valentines too. It's made from 100% organic cotton and comes in different colours, it's super soft and lovely - I might even have to steal it for myself sometimes!
Miller Harris Scherzo Candle...
I love a candle as much as the next girl and the new Miller Harris Scherzo Candle is ultra-dreamy. It comes in a beautiful matte white jar with pink hand-painted glazed drips and has a floral scent with hints of sweetness. The notes include rose, peony, tangerine, oudh and patchouli just to name a few. It's the perfect scent as we approach Spring and looks gorgeous on my mantle.
Lezzeri Star Stud Earrings
Jewellery is always a big hit when it comes to gifts, and I have the most beautiful pair of Star Stud Earrings in Gold Vermeil from Lezzeri. They are such a dainty, yet stunning piece to add to any girls jewellery collection and I adore them so much. They work great paired with a larger earring such as a pair of hoops, or they work perfectly on their own as an everyday earring. So versatile!
Doll Smash Cosmetics
Doll Smash is a luxury, vegan and gender-neutral cosmetics brand that does some gorgeous bits. I picked out the Paradise Luxury Gloss in the shade 'Spell' and it's such a beautiful gloss that pairs perfectly with any lipstick shade, as well as looks pretty on it's own. I also have the Ultimate Coverage Concealer in the shade 'Curious' which is such a lovely product to use, so creamy with incredible coverage for any dark circles or blemishes. If you're looking for a beauty gift, this is a great place to start.
Beauty Base do so many great beauty products, but they also stock some of my favourite fragrances including Giorgio Armani Si Eau de Parfum which I feel is the perfect fragrance pick for Valentines. It's rich, seductive and sexy with notes of cassis and freesia, whilst containing feminine hints of sweetness with notes of vanilla and patchouli. It really is a gorgeous scent and a must-have in any fragrance collection - especially for date night!
Evolve Organic Beauty
Another gorgeous beauty brand is Evolve Organic Beauty, which is a natural and organic beauty range selling some incredible skincare products. I picked out the Gentle Cleansing Melt which is the most dreamy cleanser containing organic baobab oil that hydrates whilst melting away makeup and impurities. I also picked out the Smooth Hands which is a super soothing hand cream with a fragrance blend of rose geranium, ylang ylang, mandarin and vanilla leaving your hands super supple and smelling delicious. I'm obsessed with this brand!
Gin In A Tin
For the gin lovers - Gin In A Tin have the L.O.V.E. Set of Gin which contains four miniature 35ml tins of delicious gin. The flavours are coriander, cardamom & lemon peel | dill, apple & beetroot | raspberry, cardamom & pomegranate | samphire, angelica & coriander. They are £20 each and come in pink and blue.
Grace & Stella
Grace & Stella are a really lovely girly brand that sell the perfect Valentines gifts for any lady in your life. I picked out the Rose Water Facial Spray which is a dreamy face spray that calms your skin down and keeps it lovely and hydrated. I can see this being a firm favourite throughout the spring/summer months coming up. I also picked the Berry Lip Mask which is a lip balm formulated with castor oil and cocoa-seed butter to give your lips all of the hydration they might need. I've been using this daily and it's gorgeous!
Calvet Crémant de Bordeaux Brut Rosé
If you're looking for something to drink on Valentines, the Calvet Crémant de Bordeaux Brut Rosé is a delicious choice, with hints of strawberry and biscuity notes. It's only £12 so a much more affordable alternative to champagne and it really is a delight. You can find it available at morrisons.
A bit of a random one, but Micro Scooters do a range of scooters including adult scooters, which could make a great gift for someone, especially to make them feel young again! But, they also have this amazing festival trolley which works perfectly for camping, beach trips, festival weekends and the works for the whole family. I know this is something a lot of men (including my partner Jake!) would love, especially those who are into camping and the outdoors. If you're looking for a gift that's a little outside the box, and would get a lot of use, then this trolley works great. I know that we will use it so much as a family and it's something that my partner has wanted for ages.
