Some high end gift ideas

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, a little guide/wishlist won't hurt anyone :) I picked a couple of things from Chanel, Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs and you can see them on the photo above.  

I don't know anybody who wouldn't be happy to receive a high end product for Valentines Day, or other occasion.  Me and my husband always celebrate Valentines Day and we don't go crazy with presents, but we always get each other something lovely and have a romantic meal. I think that for the past 4 years, I have been getting jewellery, flowers and chocolates as a present, so I would actually like to get something different this time. I am always happy to receive a Chanel lipstick or perfume, or maybe a gorgeous blusher (hint, hint!). I have been lusting after  Tom Ford makeup as well and would love get a gorgeous TF lippie. I've never tried anything from Tom Ford before to be honest and I want to change it. The Black Orchid perfume is definitely on my "To buy" list but I can't justify spending £68 on EDP at the moment. When I was exploring the world of Tom Ford, I also noticed a pair of  Tom Ford Sunglasses (pictured on the collage above) and they look very interesting. I think that all TF designs are very classy and elegant.

Another brand/designer I really like is Marc Jacobs. The Daisy EDT is extremely popular and loved by many bloggers and I am planning to get it when my spending ban is over. I am loving Marc Jacobs jewellery as well, and the prices are reasonable. The bracelet costs £80 and the earrings cost only £30. I also found lovely Marc Jacobs Sunglasses from focus-online.com . I love the Dark Havana frames and gold detailing with tiny pearls. Beautiful! When I was preparing this post, I found out something I didn't even realize. There's Marc Jacobs (high fashion and more expensive) and Marc by Marc Jacobs (more purse friendly) and they are different ranges. I didn't even pay attention to that before, but I learn something new every day :) Now, I will be looking for Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses instead of Marc Jacobs ones ;)

Do you like to receive high end gifts? What is on you wishlist at the moment?

  1. These are really great ideas :) I love the colour of the Chanel blush it's beautiful. Have to agree with you on lusting after Tom Ford. Way out of my price range but we girls can dream! :) x


  2. Great picks! My boyfriend and I do the same, buy a little something for eachother than go for a meal. We're looking to try somewhere new this year! He actually bought me a perfume for Christmas so I'd feel a bit guilty asking for another but I'll definitely be on the lookout for something nice! x

  3. I would love a Tom Ford lipstick xxx

  4. I'd be happy to receive any of these gifts but, truth be told, I always feel a little guilty/spoiled getting something so luxurious!!


  5. I love Daisy it is my favourite perfume!(:


  6. Chance and Daisy are my favourite perfumes:)! x


  7. The Marc Jacobs earings are really cute for £30, thought they would have been more!

  8. Oh all of the above please :)

  9. I want everything you showed on here, you have such great taste! the chanel spring collection is so gorgeous, in love with that lipstick :-)



  10. I got that bracelet from Marc by Marc Jacobs for my Christmas, and it's never off my wrist. I love it so much, but I have the red because the pink was a total skin tone clash. I want a Tom Ford lipstick so badly I'm tempted to swap my first born child for one, but since it's my birthday in a few days maybe I'll be sensible and just throw some hints around! My Valentines present to myself is going to be a new Chanel varnish - because I'm worth it (no wait, that's not quite right.....).
