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 🙂

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.

Bodycare

mad beauty bath fizzers

Mad beauty bath fizzers

£6.99

www.madbeauty.com

I LOVE Mad beauty, they have such an amazing range of gifts, not just for Valentine’s! The bath fizzers are a great gift, for anyone that loves to pamper themselves (I am a massive bath bomb fan!). I love the packaging for this range as it is multicoloured hearts and it is just such a lovely gift.

ren moroccan rose body wash

Ren Moroccan rose body wash

£32

The Ren moroccan rose range has got to be one of my favourite body ranges out there. I love the scent and have used the body lotion and oil before and just adore them.

Ren have teamed up with McQueens florists for this limited edition body wash. It is a great size(500ml) and I just love the design on the label.

jurlique rose body oil

Jurlique rose body oil
£38

I love the whole of the Jurlique rose range, the formulas, the scent, how gentle it is to your skin and how simple but beautiful the packaging is.

I have used a Jurlique facial oil before to help my acne and really helped. Even though the rose body oil is only 100ml it literally will last forever!

The oil is so luxurious and lovely to use after a relaxing bath, you don’t need to put it all over, you can use it wherever you like and it really is moisturising. It sinks in quickly so doesn’t leave you feeling oily which is a bonus 🙂

Amphora aromatics

Amphora Aromatics – Love it gift box
£11.95

This beautiful set contains a bath oil, massage oil and a body lotion. The bottles are a good size and this is really great value.

The bath oil smells so amazing, it contains lots of great oils that are good for your skin and the bottle contains enough for up to 8 baths. The massage oil can be used either on yourself or your partner and I like that is isn’t too oily if that makes sense. The body lotion is very hydrating and leaves your skin so soft and leaves you smelling divine!

Makeup

urban decay vice lipsticks

Urban Decay vice lipsticks

£15 each

www.urbandecay.co.uk

I have been a massive fan of the vice range since it was first released, I have recently added the above three to my collection and wanted to add them into my gift guide as I think they would make great gifts.

The lipsticks are so pigmented and easy to apply, they last ages and come in a range of what seems like a gazillion colours.

From top to bottom:

Tryst

Obsessed

Morning After

I think the names in the range are great too 🙂

blank canvas brushes

Blank Canvas dimension series brushes
www.blankcanvascosmetics.com
Prices range from £6.50 to £14.50

These brushes are every mermaid/unicorn wannabees dream (including mine!). The colour is just beautiful. Why wouldn’t you be attracted to something so shiny and pretty and champagne pink?!

I am lucky to have got my hands on the F08 dome buffing brush and F06 bevelled foundation/contour brush. They are both such great quality and so lovely to use. A good brush really does make a difference and to your make up routine.

Perfume

how to marry a millionaire perfume

How to marry a millionaire perfume
£20
Can be purchased from most major perfume retailers.

One of the coolest perfume bottles I have a seen, a massive diamond ring!
This perfume is inspired by the film starring Marilyn Monroe and smells really sweet.

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

Skincare

Jurlique rose moisturising cream mask

Jurlique rose moisturising cream mask
£32.50

I have used the rose water balancing mist and face cream before so to add this cream mask into my beauty regime was really exciting. You can either use it as a mask for ten minutes or if your skin really needs saving, you can leave it on overnight.

It has so many great natural ingredients in and leaves your skin super hydrated and looking fresh and far more awake!

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


Nail/Handcare

deborah lippmann nail set

Deborah Lippmann nail varnish set
£28
Available from February 2017 online at Harrods / Lookfantastic / Feelunique / Selfridges

This set contains 6 beautiful rosy nudes and wold be great for any nail polish fan or even someone that prefers natural looking nails as the colours are all very neutral.

I have always been a fan of this brand as they are easy to apply and seem to last ages. The packaging is gorgeous and I just love the names of them: life is rosy, the look of love and a trail of petals to name a few.

mad beauty hand cream

Mad beauty hand cream

£4.99

www.madbeauty.com

Another one from mad beauty.  This hand cream is also within the same eye catching packaging. It is the perfect size tube to carry around with you and I mean, you can’t have enough hand cream can you?!

Jurlique rose hand cream

Jurlique rose hand cream
£18

I have been using Jurlique hand creams for a few years now, a couple of Christmas’s ago I got a set of four different scents and instantly fell in love. Keeping in the theme of rose I wanted to include the rose hand cream.

This hand cream is the perfect size to carry around with you and with its non greasy formula and beautiful scent you can use it whenever you are in need. Particularly with the cold weather here at the moment hand creams have been a massive savour for me.

Crabtree & Evelyn - hand therapy

Crabtree & Evelyn – hand therapy
£6

I love their range of hand creams.  At only £6 each they are great value and the perfect size to leave in your desk, bag, car, pocket, wherever you may need one. They come in such a variety of scents and would make the perfect gift for any women(or man!).

They smell great and soak in quickly, what more would you want from a hand cream?!

the english soap company

For the one I love soap

£4.95

www.theenglishsoapcompany.com

As I have mentioned before, I love a good bar of soap. A great smelling soap is pretty good gift for anyone at any age.

I love the quality and luxuriousness of the soaps from The English Soap Company, you can really tell they take pride in their products and have put a lot of effort into the scents and delicate packaging.


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

Haircare

Crazy Color conditioner for coloured hair

Crazy Color conditioner for coloured hair
£4.95

Products like this are a godsend for coloured hair. I have previously used the shampoo in this range for red hair but now my hair is multicoloured I cant use a specific colour product, so this is meant for any colour 🙂

This would be the perfect gift if your loved one has coloured hair!

Osmo matt salt spray

Osmo matt salt spray
£8.99 in Sallys

This salt spray is great to use to get the beach wave look. This is a great gift for male or female that loves their hair and likes to style it.

It is easy to use and you don’t need much, meaning the spray will last a long time!

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

Keep your eye out for Part 2 tomorrow 🙂

Trying to make sure my hands look perfect for my wedding day I have turned to the Crabtree & Evelyn pomegranate ultra moisturising hand therapy to try and sort them out!

This hand cream now goes everywhere with me, as I know on the big day there will be lots of people wanting to look at my ring (and I will wan pictures too!) so I need to make sure my hands aren’t dry.

As the box says, it is ULTRA moisturising and I definitely agree with this. It is great as it contains lots of things great for your skin: shea butter, argan oil and many other great ingredients.

The size is perfect to carry around in your bag or leave next to your bed and the cream isn’t greasy at all. It smells lovely, it is hard to describe as it has a hint of citrus, so go and try it yourself!
