Yay, it is the month of romance, love and happiness. Even if you are single why not treat yourself to a goodie or two. I have compiled a lovely selection of Valentine’s appropriate gifting for him, her and even for you. I find buying for boys so much trickier than for girls. For girls I ten to just buy double of what I am buying and keeping for myself. For boys, well, adult boys, I tend to buy alcohol! In this list there are some treats for men to make them feel like they can pamper themselves whilst you pamper yourself too. Read on to find some amazing inspo.
(This gift guide contains gifted items which I requested for content creation)
LET’S GET LIPPY
Romance is so much about kissing right? Well here are some lovely products to plump up your lips and make them look beautifully rosy. This petite Winky Lux ‘Steal My Heart-Call Me’ lipstick scream Valentine’s and I am so pleased I have finally photographed it so I can use it. How beautiful is its heart shape and pinky colour. If you want to plump up your lips in preparation for kissing season then this product by Bybi is what you are after ‘Plumper & Buffer’. I have shared Rodin products before in my Christmas gift guides and I have been using their lipsticks ever since. These beauties decorated in a red floral design are the perfect present (Lilium and Dianthus).
YOU KNOW THE WAY TO MY HEART
These two goodies are all about the luxury and not quite going to break the bank! Both come beautifully packaged as well which makes a present 1000x better in my opinion. I have loved Lulu Guinness for a really long time and have the classic red lips clutch and red lip print make up travel holder. I am now the proud owner of this divine ‘heart purse’. It is a good sized coin purse lined in the black and white striped fabric. The outside has a red side and a pink size. Oh I love it so! It would make such a wonderful gift for anyone in your life. Buckley London are always creating fabulous classy gifts which come packaged in such cute ways. This beautiful gold heart bracelet comes in the most adorable white and black edged box which looks like a teeny hat box.
SPRITZ YOUR WAY TO MY HEART
Girlies, I am here with some beautiful scents to make hearts flutter and strangers ask you what perfume you are wearing. You know that experience of when you are in a room and someone says, “who smells good?”, well, now that person can be you. I am always trying to think of new inventive ways to tell you about a perfume through words so I have decided to give you a few descriptive words to help you imagine the scents that I can smell here.
Goutal ‘Rose Pompon’ : Feminine, sweet but not sickly, a luxury holiday in the Maldives.
Tory Burch ‘Love Relentlessly’: young adult, balmy Spring evenings in the park with friends.
Elle ‘L’edition’: youthful, floral and a little bit sweet.
Here are some beauty and romance goodies for the cheeky girls amongst us. Why not make your eyes flutter like they have never fluttered before. Kiss have incredible lashes and these Splendor lashes of their will have boys and girls staring at you from across the bar. I feel so much better when I have nice nails and have always loved Leighton Denny. Here are three divine romance inspired colours you will love (‘Plush Pink’ ‘Paparazzi’ ‘Provocative’).
Real roses, die and leave stains on surfaces and bedding. Why not save the roses for your beautiful vase and buy this bag of fake petals which you can use time after time…and if you are a blogger, they are a great prop for your blog posts. Why not pop this little pleasurable and discrete goodie from Bondara in your shopping cart when you buy your rose petals.
PRESENTS FOR YOUR GUY
As I said earlier, boys are tricky to buy for, right!? Well, here are a selection of lovely male goodies. It would be so lovely and special to get this array of goodies and pop them in a mini hamper, don’t you think? Gillette is such a classic isn’t it. My aunty actually uses this mens razor and said it’s the best razor out there. So maybe get the man in your life this razor but secretly know that it is a joint present ;P . I am the biggest fan of Tweezerman and swear by their tweezers. I have the pink ones and after I spotted Liam using mine a few times I popped a black pair in his stocking a few years ago. Tweezerman have great little gift sets. They come packaged so beautifully with great black leather travel cases. Check out these two here and here. These hillarious Valentine’s Day cards from Moments With Cards are currently only £1.99!! You will have a whole lot of laughs reading the front of each card. Black Leopard have an incredibly luxe range of products which you can buy in gift sets or choose your own products and pop into a gift box.
I hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day. Have you got any plans?
