Valentine's Day Gift Guide

This post features gifted items/PR samples

With not much time left for Valentine's Day, I thought I would put together a last minute gift guide for her. Whether you're single or in a relationship, it's always nice to treat yourself or be spoilt by your partner, right?

Fragrance is one of the most popular gifts for any occasion and Valentine's Day is no exception! You can get it last minute in Boots or a perfume shop, add a bow and some flowers or chocolates and you're sorted.

I am a huge fan of Armani fragrances and the new In Love With You EDP*(50ml, £68.00) is a gorgeous addition to my collection. It comes in the same packaging as the previous edition and there is an option for men as well if you like 'twinning'. It features sweet black cherry, heart of jasmine and notes of patchouli and it's described as an intense fruity, floriental. I absolutely adore it and if you love the last one or the Si fragrances, you will definitely enjoy In Love With You.

 Candles are one of my (not so) secret obsession and I have a huge collection, but this one is possibly the most extravagant one yet! It's the MOR Rosa Noir Deluxe Soy Candle*(£27.00) and it comes in the most beautiful black jar with a lid and gorgeous fuchsia pink tassells! Once you lift the lid, the pink wax is revealed and you're treated to the most beautiful scent of Rose, Carnation , Lily of the Valley, Sandalwood, Musk and Tonka Bean.  It's not a classic rose scent and I love the notes of Lilly Of The Valley (on of my favourites), as it makes it smell like a gorgeous bouquet!

 The candle is made with hand poured soy wax and a 100% cotton lead-free wick  for a cleaner and longer burn (up to 50 hours) and it feels very luxurious. You can buy it from www.feelunique.com.

 Now onto the fun stuff! I have never discussed sex toys on the blog, but when I got an email from So Devine about these, I couldn't say no, as the timing was perfect for Valentine's Day. You can actually pick these up in Boots, Superdug, Asda and Tesco, which is great as a last minute option! If you want to treat yourself or your partner to something fun, definitely check out So Devine. The Vibrating Love Egg*(£54.99) comes with a remote control and it's made from the softest silky soft silicone. It features 3 Speeds & 7 pulsating patterns, is water resistant and latex and phthalate free. It also comes with a luxury storage bag and it's beautifully packaged in a sleek white gift box.

 If you buy from Boots, you get a free bullet with it as well (in gold, the one pictured is a new Afternon Delight design). And if you order directly from the So Devine website, they have a 25% off offer at the moment. I actually love the look of these as well, as the design is quite discrete and very aesthetically pleasing with the intense purple colour and rose gold touches.

 Last but not least, we have this gorgeous limited edition Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter*(£11.00). I love the scent of this body butter (and the full range) and the cute pink  tin with gorgeous illustrations and a rose on top is a perfect touch for Valentine's Day. Are you a Soap & Glory fan? 

 PS. The cute heart confetti is From Home Bargains and I also picked up some adorable balloons and other bits and bobs from their Valentine's Day section. You will probably see them tomorrow in my cliché Instagram photos.

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? We don't go 'all out' for it, but I think it's a nice way to celebrate love with a partner, friends or family.
