Valentine’s Day: the self love gift guide!
Hello Friend, how are you! Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I want you to take this post as a sign to treat yourself! After all… self love is just as important as any other love and you can’t fill anyone else’s cup without a full cup of your own. Celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day! Let’s chat about some great luxury Valentine’s Day gifts!
a cashmere jumper or scarf
When it comes to knitwear you can’t beat cashmere! It’s not a cheap yarn, but it is wonderful and will last for years if you look after it. So treat yourself to the good stuff for cosy joy all winter long!
First up! Let chat LoveHoney treat! I’ve got a 20% discount code for you, so if you fancy buying something very special… get 20% off with the code BBLFL. Enjoy!
We all love a good bath, don’t we?! So why not treat yourself to a new bath soak. There’s loads of amazing ones out there, like Olverum or Aromatherapy Associates, but the one I always come back to is my fave Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak. It’s amazing!
New bedding is something I rarely treat myself to and whenever I do, I think ‘why didn’t I do this earlier?!’. New sheets just feel SO good!!!! I recently got some bedding from Linenbundle and I can’t say enough good things about their amazing sheets. The quality is amazing, the prints and colour palettes are gorgeous and it’s the best self-care treat! Thank me later!
A fresh tan!
A good tan is an instant mood boost, so why not treat yourself to some new self tan?! There’s loads of amazing brands on the market which make tanning at home easy, but I’m always a fan of natural tans like this new one from Tropic.
New nail polishes
What is it about freshly painted nails which make you feel SO good?! Personally I’m SO over gels and I can’t handle fake nails, so I’m all about the classic polishes! The trick is; invest in a good quality polish that you don’t have to reapply all the time! For me, that’s Mavala and these colours are perfect for summer!
A ‘life’s too short’ handbag
Do you ever think; ‘life’s too short, buy the bag’? Me too!!! Give yourself some self-love and buy the bag!!!!
A new face mask
I bloody love a good face mask, they give so much impact and really make you feel like you are taking care of yourself. Personally I always go for hydrating and nourishing masks over clay and detoxing masks, as I have sensitive skin and I can find the latter quite stripping. So if in doubt, look for something hydrating, especially in the winter months. Personally I love the new lifting and plumping jurlique face mask!
A new journal
If journaling is your thing, or you would like it to be, then treat yourself to a new one. Personally, I love to go for one with a beautiful cover a lovely thick paper.
Elizabeth Scarlett Pouch
Elizabeth Scarlett pouches are SO joyful! You can use them as either a clutch bag, make up bag or as a handbag organiser. Whatever you do with them, they are super beautiful and joyful and make a great gift to yourself! Read my full review here.
Art & craft supplies
If you love to craft, then treat yourself to some new art and craft supplies! This could be baking supplies, fabrics, pens, paints or even something more ambitious like a kit for gold leafing!
Westlab bath salts
If budget is tight, then my favourite pick-me-up is always a bag of Westlab bath salts! Their salts are SO good for the mind, body and soul, for £5.99 a bag it’s a perfect self love treat!
There’s truly nothing better than an electric blanket. IYKYK!
One of my favourite self care treats is my beloved Rejuvenated Supplements. They care for your hair, skin and body from the inside and I really do see and feel the difference when I take them. A perfect self care treat! If you are new to the brand, I can’t recommend H2O Night or collagen shots enough!
As much as I love a small, super luxe candle; sometimes I love to buy a big candle which I can burn lavishly and enjoy every night; not just on special occasions or at the weekend! For me, it has to be either Yankee or Woodwick candles; their scents are so nice and they really fill the room. Plus Woodwick have special wicks which crackle softly as the burn! It’s really lovely!
Acqua di Parma Perfume
I’m a firm believer that you should wear perfume every day, just for you! Even on the days where you are home alone, it just feels nice! One of my all time favourite perfumes is Acqua Di Parma’s Rosa Nobile, it’s truly wonderful; fresh, rose-filled and with a hint of juicy tangerine and spicy black pepper! No self love gift guide would be complete without a gorgeous perfume!
The kitchen gadget you’ve always dreamed of!
Is there a kitchen gadget you’ve always dreamed of owning? Then now is the time!!!! It might be a coffee maker, air fryer or even a slow cooker! It might make your life easier, or bring you joy because you love cooking… but either way, treat yourself!
A new pair of pyjamas is always a good idea! Personally I love soft cotton options, but if you favour fleece or silk… go wild! And if you live in a cold house… why not treat yourself to a hot water bottle too!
A holiday… or a night in a spa with your bestie!
No really! It’s SO easy to not book a holiday, but if you can afford it… book it!!! It’s sooo good to have something to look forward to! And if not, then why not book a night away in a spa for you and your bestie!
