Valentine's Day Gift Guide

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I have a few lovely suggestions, mostly for her. From gorgeous makeup to fragrance and personalised homeware. 

Let's start with this amazing Too Faced deal. They teamed up with Skinny Dip London bringing out this stunning limited edition 'Love, Lashes & Chocolate Set*, featuring a makeup bag full of Too Faced products. What does it include?

 -the beautiful Chocolate Bar Palette
-a full size Better Than Sex Mascara
-a mini Melted Chocolate Lipstick in Honey 
-a mini Love Flush Blush in Justify My Love. 

All that for £50.00 (£92.00 value). Available exclusively at www.toofaced.com till the 9th of February.

Next, a quirky Initial light box from SGT Smith*(£45.00). It can be personalised with two initials and you simply plug it in and use it as a little light. It's quite bright, but cosy enough for a nice romantic evening. I love it! And the wooden frame goes nicely with our living room decor.

Classic option and a no-brainer - an Emma Bridgewater Pink Hearts Mug (£19.95+ £1 per letter). You can personalise it as well to make it even more special. And if the price tag of EB puts you off, Home Bargains have some lovely bits in at the moment, including this cute heart mug for 99p.

How adorable are these Love Tokens from Tiger!!! Only £1.00 and they would be a great addition to any Valentine's Day gift.

For a sweet tooth, we have the Prestat Raspberry Dark Chocolate* (£3.00), which tastes AMAZING! And for the makeup lover, the Too Faced Melted Matte in Bend & Snap*(£19.00) might hit the spot. I am absolutely obsessed with it!

Viktor & Rolf Bon Bon*(50ml,£73.00) will melt anyones heart with the stunning bottle and an incredible scent and the cute Foreo Luna Play*(£29.00) would be an amazing idea for a skincare addict.

I know that gin is a very, very popular drink, so you might want to get a special edition bottle of someone's favourite gin or maybe a little gift set. The Pinkster 'Let the Love BeGin' Limited Edition Gin*(£34.95) not only tastes great, but the special V-Day label also makes it an amazing gift for gin lovers! You could also opt for the Pothecary Gin & Chocolate Gift Set*(£22.95) if the love of your life loves gin and chocolate equally and you just can't decide what to go for :) Both available from www.31dover.com

I don't have many suggestions for him this year, but I was very intrigued by the Ferrari Fragrance iPhone Case*(£30.00). I actually think it's a genius idea, phone case with a little 25ml edt insert inside. I mean... I am sure some men want a quick spray of their favourite aftershave before a date, right? But they don't have a bag to keep it in. Well - this is the solution! I love the concept! The set comes with two 25ml inserts, so 50ml in total.

And you can never go wrong with some fancy boxers, like these HOM HO1 Boxer Briefs*(£29.00). Such nice quality! 

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? We do it very low key, but I think that it's always nice to celebrate love and relationships!
