Gifts For The Girls
Valentines Day is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about gifts. I promise, I will make a gift guide for the boys super soon, but for now, let’s focus on the girls; sweet treats for your girlfriend or BFF. Let’s be honest, these days, Valentines Day is just as much about the Besties as it is the lovebirds. Let’s get cracking shall we?
Jo Loves Personalised Valentines Candle
Jo Malone is a very talented woman, she created one of the worlds most loved brands, Jo Malone London and now she’s a best selling author with a new perfumery project, Jo Loves. Meeting her was a true highlight of my blogging career and I can’t recommend trying her products enough. Her latest treat is the Jo Loves Limited edition Valentines Candle, it comes with the date pre-printed on the candle and you can get it personalised to read yours and your partners names. It’s scented with White Rose & Lemon Leaves and it’s just the most special and thoughtful gift!
Aspinal Of London Purse
A ‘small leather good’ is always a great gift, it’s something which can be used every day and will bring a little bit of joy every time it’s reached for. Personally, I am a huge fan of Aspinal Of London and I adore this simple purse, it’s the perfect size for all your cards and cash without being so big it takes up all your handbag space. Also, the colour is stunning, it’s sweet and romantic, without being obvious in pink or red.
Too Faced Sweet Peach
These Too Faced Sweet Peach Lip Glosses are such a cute valentines day gift! Not only is every insta-girl lusting over these right now, but the name of them is so cute that all you have to do is scribble a card saying ‘To my sweet peach, blah blah blah’ and you have one thoughtful Valentines day gift. Also, traditionally lip glosses are know for being sticky and gross, but these lip glosses are more of a lip oil, so they have the glossy finish, but they are more of a non-sticky, hydrating finish. Oh and they smell like peaches! So. Much. Cuteness!
Dower & Hall Jewellery
If your girl loves jewellery, then why not get her some candy coloured crystal rings from Dower & Hall. I have a fair few of these now and I just love them! The stones come in a variety of colours and sizes and you can wear them alone or stack them up! They really are the cutest treats which can be worn day in, day out!
Aveda Wedding Masque Skin Care
If your girl is actually a fiance, then this Aveda Wedding Masque Skin Care could be a lovely skin care treat! It is named ‘Wedding masque’ as it’s inspired by the the Haldi ceremony from India, a pre-wedding tradition in which a homemade turmeric paste is applied to the bride and groom for glowing skin on their wedding day. Great for any girl who loves indulging in skin care, it’s also a really sweet sentiment if you are engaged to be married!
Crabtree & Evelyn Rose Delights
If you like your rose scented treats to be full on, heady red rose (rather than blended with other florals and citrus fruits) then Crabtree & Evelyn have all the Rose goodness you need! From Rose & White Chocolate Biscuits, to Rose Overnight Handcream and the iconic Evelyn Rose perfume. For all the rose purists out there, Crabtree & Evelyn should be your first port of call this Valentines day!
Marc Jacobs Make-up
Show your girl you know what’s hot with a selection of the new Marc Jacobs Make-up. This collection has taken everyone by surprise, not because it’s good, we expected that, but because it’s great, like life-changingly good! Whilst the Marc Jacobs perfume collection is youthful and playful, the make up collection is luxe and elegant. Beautiful and fabulous! Favourites of mine include the blusher and the beautiful lipsticks.
The ladies love Swarovski jewellery, the beautiful crystals and the delicate designs make it enjoyable to wear and easy to stay for work or play. Indulge in a little Swarovski Jewellery this Valentines day, either something simple and meaningful like this beautiful Crystal Wishes necklace (you can wear both, or share one for you and a friend) or if she likes something a little more standout, then try the new Crystaldust Bracelets, they are so beautiful and so much fun to wear! I’m tempted to stack these up and wear all the colours together!
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom
Everyone loves a new bottle of Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb, but right now there is a new limited edition twist on the classic, Flowerbomb Bloom. Imagine the iconic fragrance with a little added pomegranate and peony. Fresh, floral, crisp and now a little juicier and darker! A stunning addition to the collection, it’s funny how a dash of pomegranate makes things so much more exciting! Oh and it’s only available from Debenhams, so make sure you pick it up instore or online.
Love the classics? Flowers, chocolates and underwear, then why not try a pretty set from Freya. I’m usually an M&S girl, but I recently got a set of Freya and I’m hooked, their underwear is beautiful; great quality, supportive and flattering. Oh and we are grown women, not FHM girls, unless you want to wear crotchless panties and nipple tassels, then buy the underwear you love and feel comfortable in. Confidence is sexy, 50 Shades of Grey is a film, not an expectation.
Liz Earle Rose Scented Treats
Hands up who loves Liz Earle! I doooooo! This Valentines day, why not indulge in a few delights from Liz Earle which are all delightfully rose scented! Personally I adore their Rosemary & Rock Rose Hand Repair and candle, both of which are uplifting and zesty, but also relaxing and Balancing. I also adore their Botanical Essence No. 20 Perfume as it contains rose, jasmine, pink pepper, mandarin, sandalwood and vanilla. It’s got romantic rose and floral vibes, without being too overwhelmingly floral.
And for those who love a little chocolate for Valentines Day, then why not give it with a twist, I’m talking about the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette! Normally this bad boy costs £39, but at the moment, you can buy the Too Faced X Skinnydip Set for £50 and it include the Chocolate palette, Love Flush mini blusher, Better Than Sex mascara and Melted Chocolate liquid lipstick. All beautifully packaged in a lust-worthy Too Faced X Skinnydip make up bag! There’s even a little spare space left in the make up bag to pop some Hershey’s Kisses!
…And there we have it! Lots of suggestions of gifts for your girl! Personally, I’m going to be boyfriend-less this V-day (he’s going to be away with work) so if you want to keep me company on the big night, tweet me funny gifs!
