Hurrah! February is here, the month of love (and shameless consumerism). Sure, love should be given freely all year round, but isn’t it lovely to have a day dedicated to celebrating its existence? With this gift guide I have curated a mix of gift ideas to make any lady smile. These gifts will save you from a last minute dash to the supermarket for the standard flowers/chocolates/wine and you won’t have to spend a single awkward second browsing your local department stores lingerie selection.
Whether you’re looking for inspired gift ideas for your Valentine , Gal-entine, Pal-entine or even a cheeky treat for yourself – check out my top picks for the perfect gift.
KissKiss LoveLove Coral lipstick by Guerlain returns this Spring, within the delightfully chic packaging (pink casing with rainbow accents) sits a lipstick that is heart shaped. This cute design is perfect for creating a bold cupids bow.
Available in five shades.
Spectrum Collections have been going from strength to strength recently. Off the back of an incredible Mean Girls collection, comes the Sweetheart range. The heart shaped brush might just be the most “empty Diptyque candle jar” worthy brush I have ever seen.
The softly domed bristles are perfect for sweeping on dual highlighter, blush or bronzer powder products – perfect for date night glam or a day time glow!
Whats more, Spectrum brushes are vegan registered and cruelty free. Winner winner Quorn “Chicken” dinner.
Kocostar have done it again, they’ve created a product that looks incredible. These delectable lip treatments would make the perfect addition to a pampered night in. They come in the cutest lip case that just screams “Valentines”.
Sugar by name and by nature these tints are so sweet looking, they’d make the perfect addition to a valentines pamper bundle.
Instead of traditional flowers, why not buy a brooch with her birth flower on it (each month is associated with a different bloom). Don’t worry, no need for a degree in botany, the folks at I am acrylic have done the research for you and created a fun range of floral brooches. Even better, acrylic jewellery is having a bit of a revival right now, making this gift both stylish and thoughtful.
…Because every girl loves a designer bag (and this one is ridiculously appropriate if you don’t feel like being subtle with your message). The End.
Affordable, unique, stylish and functional. This bag has serious wow factor. From the tweed fabric, to the statement heart design and bold colours. This is shoulder wear with serious flare.
Makes reaching for your Oyster card a lot more glamorous. Small luxury items like this make great gifts as they are indulgent yet practical.
Great smelling fragrances don’t need to cost a fortune. This one is fairly inexpensive, yet looks (and most importantly smells) expensive, elegant and sophisticated. Great alone or could be combined with some of the other small items listed above to create a Valentines Hamper.
Can you tell I’m obsessed with these candles. I mentioned them in a recent post How to transform your regular bath into a Zen like spa experience. These candles are divine. They look incredible and come presented in a luxury box with dried flowers (can you get any more romantic…? Candle light √ Flowers √).
Calligraphy has never been cooler. Black and white prints featuring romantic phrases are having a major moment. These prints are so affordable at £3, all you need to do is source a gorgeous frame. The perfect way to say how you feel, without having to say how you feel.
Because biscuits are cool. Chocolates and macaroons are alright, but hand iced biscuits are the real deal.
Exactly as it sounds. Send them a pic of her most loved animal companion/s and they will capture it in a personalised t-shirt. BEST. GIFT. EVER.
