I am a sucker for anything sparkly. This choker is so stunning with an iridescent heart on and only costed £6! If you visit Unicorn Born you can see the full range, they come in so many colours 🙂

The necklace is so well made, packaged well and arrived super quick. You can pick different lengths as well as what colour heart you want. They also have a lot of other designs, including initial necklaces which I think are really trendy.

It is such a delicate necklace and really does sparkle beautifully in the light!

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 🙂

I am a big jewellery fan. I always wear the same rings (wedding
band/engagement ring) and tend to stick to the same watch but I have a big
necklace collection! One of my new additions is this beautiful piece from Natural Amber.

I always think that if you are wearing a necklace it is one of the
things someone will always notice when talking to you as its in their line of
vision. I had seen a lot of celebrities wearing “coin” jewellery and
I think it looks great.

I really like the idea of it being a sixpence as opposed to a
pound coin or another coin as a sixpence is meant to be lucky. One of my
sisters actually gave me a sixpence on my wedding day as it is supposed to
bring good luck 🙂

If you look closely at my necklace, one coin is from 1965 and the
other from 1963, yet they both look brand new. The coins have been cleaned and
polished to a high standard and then attached to the chain. You cant really see
where the loop is attached to the necklace or how the coins are stuck together
which makes it look even better 🙂

The silver chain is a perfect length as I don’t like necklaces too
long but it mentioned online the length so I knew what to expect. I am usually
a bit weary about buying expensive items online as you never know how they will
turn out but this definitely lives up to standards, in fact it looks better in
real life than in pictures. That’s why I wanted to share my thoughts and
feelings with you 🙂

coin necklace

This necklace would make an ideal present for a loved one, or even
as a treat to yourself (you deserve to splash out now and again, that’s what I
tell myself anyway!). The necklace is £94.99 which at first I thought was quite
expensive, but the chain is silver and once you see the quality of the necklace
you realise it is definitely worth it! I have seen similar ones online for
£200+ so this is a really good price.

I don’t often review things like this, just mostly make up and
stuff but when I come across something like this then I really just want to
show it off and let you all know how lovely I think it is 🙂

I never used to wear much jewellery but since getting engaged and married I always wear my rings. I came across www.connoisseurs.com when i was searching for jewellery cleaner and decided to try some of their products.

This is the back of my rings before I cleaned then. The top is my engagement ring which I have had a lot longer than my wedding ring. They are both white gold but you can see the top one is very dirty and tarnished.

Look how much dirt came off when using one of the wipes, so gross!

But you can see how much cleaner they both look, especially the top one!

I also used the dazzle stick on the diamonds. You just wet the brush and twist it up then you can clean your jewellery and then simple rinse after.

I am really pleased how sparkly and clean my rings now are 🙂

Accessories 

Zebra satchel bag
£17
I love zebra print and handbags so what more could I ask for?! It is from Bad Sheep Boutique who are an online shop that have a great range of clothing and accessories. They also do this bag in plain black 🙂 It is a good size and also has a long strap you can use. Satchels are very popular recently so this would be a great gift! 

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

Cloud necklace
£8
Cloud earrings
£5
These are so cute it is unreal! I love little jewellery pieces like this, adds a finishing touch to any outfit. They have lots of jewellery items on their website and I want them all! They are so reasonably priced as well and have been hand crafted to a high standard.

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

Clothing



Dark Bunny Tees Gremlins jumper

£25

I am a massive massive massive Gremlins fan, if you haven’t seen the film, go watch it right now! When I came across Dark Bunny Tees on Twitter, I just had to have this jumper. They do jumpers a t shirts from lots of different tv shows and films so it is worth checking out their website. This jumper fits me perfect and is a soft sweatshirt material, can’t wait to wear it on Christmas day!

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

Hello Kitty flashing t shirt
£12.99
This is literally so cool. It reacts to sound and flashes (video on link above!). I love hello kitty so this was a must have! You imply put batteries in the battery pack and turn it on. The panel at the front is removable and so is the battery pack so it is easy to wash. Something like this would be great for anyone as they have different designs for men, women and children 🙂

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

Superman flashing t shirt
 As above, you simply add batteries and off you go! This is a great one for man, they also have spiderman and batman 🙂 I just love the concept of these and the fact they are sound activated means they aren’t constantly flashing, just when you are near music or if someone is talking to you!

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

I hope you enjoyed reading this and I hope it has helped to inspire you for gift ideas!
