I am obsessed with bath bombs. I usually stock up in the Boxing day sale at Lush, I had never even thought about making my own until I saw this kit from The Soap Kitchen.

I was so excited when this arrived and I couldn’t wait to give it a go!

Each kit contains enough base ingredients to make approximately 6 large bath bombs using the moulds supplied.

The Floral kit includes:
600g Sodium Bicarbonate

200g Citric Acid Granular (European)

2g UM Violet powder pigment

2g UM Pink powder pigment

2 x 5g Dried Petals (rose & lavender)

10ml Lavender essential oil.

10ml English Rose fragrance oil.

2 of your chosen moulds Moulds (4 halves)Instructions

I chose the large heart shape moulds for mine 🙂

You can select different kits and also different moulds. There is a great one for Christmas too!

I recently came across Victoria Mae Designs and noticed she had designed a range of tea gifts. I spotted the cat range and instantly fell in love. If you know someone that enjoys a good cuppa this is the ideal gift.

There are so many ranges to choose from, you can view them all here.

Each tea bag is enclosed in a hand crated pouch with a unique picture/quote and I plan on keeping them all to use as a collage after I have used the tea bags 🙂

It is such a unique idea and a great gift. They range in price depending on how many tea bags you require but it is definitely something special and worth buying for yourself or your loved one.

For the last couple of weeks I have been burning my Lemongrass & Verbena candle from www.candlesjust4you.co.uk

What I love the most about this candle is that even after you have burnt it, the beautiful scent is still as strong as when you first lit it!

These candles are specially made so that the scent is evenly distributed and they smell gorgeous right down to the very bottom. They seem to last for hours and really are luxurious!

I do find that with cheaper candles they smell nice the first few burns but then the scent dies out and as you get closer down you can’t really smell them but with these they smell great all the way through. This is a great gift for yourself or anyone else that appreciates candles.

If you are looking for a new candle but are unsure on the scent you can request a free scent tin to be posted to you so you can see what the candle will be like 🙂

You can do this by clicking here and choosing from the following:
Lemongrass and Verbena
Sandalwood and Cedar
Lily Of The Valley
Citrus Fusion

Hands up if you like cute stationery? Did you put your hand up?! Haha. This monthly subscription from Hello Paper Lover is only £10/month (the relaunch price will be £5/month) and last months pack had the cutest mermaid inspired card in!

Hello Paper Lover

In the pack you get a mixture of different sized cards and envelopes as well as a notebook. This theme was sea/mermaids and I loved it!

You can see some of the past packs here. The brand is re launching at www.hellopaperlover.com soon so make sure you sign up and give it a go 🙂

Some people celebrate Valentine’s day, and others don’t, it is a personal preference. If you are looking to get your special someone a gift, I have put together a few ideas.

Part 1 can be viewed here!

Kitchenware/Food

Chocolate fondue

Chocolate fondue set
£4
This set is available to purchase from Flying Tiger stores across the UK

I think this is awesome idea, all you need to do is light a tealight underneath and put some chocolate in the bowl, once it is melted you an use the forks provided to dip whatever you want in to it, marshmallows, strawberries, whatever takes your fancy!

mugs

Good morning mugs
£7.50

These mugs are the perfect his/hers mugs, you could buy one for your loved one or buy them both so you have matching 😉

They are dishwasher proof which is great as often mugs/glasses with designs on can get ruined if you don’t hand wash them, but these are just fine! I really like the idea of these and now my husband and myself can have our morning tea together in style.

egg cup

Heart design egg cup
£12

This beautiful marble deign egg cup has a gold heart on and is great for any egg lover. Marble homeware is being very fashionable and to be honest, you could use this for anything, not just eggs! It would look so cute on a bedside table with rings or odd small jewellery items in.

They have a great range of marble items but this one is just so cute and is really well made. It is the kind of thing you wouldn’t mind leaving out on the side in your kitchen as decoration when it isn’t in use!

Crabtree & Evelyn - All Butter Rose & White Chocolate Biscuits

Crabtree & Evelyn – All Butter Rose & White Chocolate Biscuits
£5

These limited edition biscuits would win my heart any day. They taste so good and the fact they have crystallised rose petals in is pretty cool! Crabtree & Evelyn have a great range of biscuits and confectionery, not just bath and body 🙂

*********************************

Jewellery

Lucy Quartermaine drip ring

‘Waterfall 5-Drip Ring’ in Sterling Silver
£48

This beautiful ring is part of the Lucy Quartermaine new waterfall range, it is so beautiful and would make a lovely thoughtful gift for any jewellery fan.

You can wear it two ways, with the drips hanging up or down and it is great quality for a really good price.

*********************************

Electronics

Varta Powerpack

Varta Powerpack
£24.99
Available from Ebay/Amazon/B&Q and Homebase

I wanted to include this as a great alternative gift, it is something everyone would have use for really. The amount of times I am out and about and my phone dies! It has two ports so you can charge 2 items at ocne, whether it is a phone or a tablet and it can charge your phone fully 4 times!

I think this would be pretty cool as nowadays most people have a phone that they can’t live without!

*********************************

Books

Lifetricity

Lifetricity
£9.99

Another fabulous gift for someone would be a book. This book is a great read about self development and personal growth. There are also some amazing tips on how to live a happier life and Yvonne really has put a lot of time and thought into this inspiring book.

There are some sections for you to complete yourself and I really think this would be a great gift, this is the kind of thing my husband would appreciate.

*********************************

I hope I have inspired you with some of my gift selections 🙂
