I am not a Valentine’s day fan. Don’t get me wrong I like a card of acknowledgement (lol) but I am not one for the over exaggerated ideas of ridiculous displays of love- giving or receiving. It’s false and forced. It is like when you are in a relationship and one says to the other “Tell me you love me” and the other one does but neither feel it. It is fake… it it totally fake.
That aside, there is a hell of a lot of you that love it and want to be given the world.
Sometimes the budget doesn’t quite reach that far though. For those who have a more feasible budget here are a few lovely gift ideas;
The Body Shop
I think everyone has at least a little bit of love for The Body Shop. I know I do. Their Ginger shampoo works wonders. Ginger aside this valentines day they have a lovely selection of gift sets for Her and for him.
The Strawberry Heart Gift Set is a personal fave of mine and is a perfect juicy treat. The set comprises Strawberry Shower Gel 60ml, Strawberry Softening Body Butter 50ml and Strawberry Lip Butter 10ml.
The strawberry smell is not overpowering and is the sweetest of smells. It is one that I definitely would have on my top 5 list.
Wild and Bloom
Wild and Bloom offer a whole variety of beautifully hand picked bouquets. They are, personally, one of my favourite online florists and one I use whenever possible.
They have a beautiful range of flowers for specific occasions and a great selection of Rose bouquets to suit most price brackets.
Prices from £25-185

Noble and Isle are a quintessentially British brand that just keeps popping up in my life recently. All their products I have used so far have been gifts from family and friends and ones they have maybe been previously missed off my radar.
Having dug deep and found a few products and started using them I have found something that quite frankly reminds me of home.
The first lovely item from Noble Isle is a gorgeous gift set duo titled Little Trinket. The set contains two warming and enliving bath & shower gels both 75ml . In the set is one Fireside Bath & Showergel 75ml and one Summer Rising Bath & Showergel 75ml.
The second gift is a Fragrance Sampler gift set which comprises of four travel size bath and shower gels. Beautifully packaged the gift oozes elegance and class. The Sampler contains Willow Song Bath & Shower Gel 30ml, Fireside Bath & Shower Gel 30ml, Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel 30ml, Whisky & Water: Bath & Shower Gel 30ml. These are ideal for him or for her.
Retailing at just £12 the set, in my opinion, could be part of a really nice little pamper hamper!
Fushi is not a brand I have come across before but after trying these beauts I couldn’t not stick them on.
This gorgeous set is titled Heavenly Rose and Jasmine Complete Body Care Collection. It is a beaut collection that has strong floral hints of rose and jasmine of course. This is more for someone that really does love these floral tones. Rose is a
wonderful scent for uplifting the mood, Jasmine is soulful and calming whilst Sandalwood is soft, warm and woody.
The set itself retails for £35 which, for the quality, is pretty damn good.
NotOnTheHighStreet is always one of my go to sites if I need a quick and easy but good unique gift.
They offer a lot of really cute, personalised items that can really be heart touching.
For example they have some ‘Why i love you’ Notes for only £21, a stunning personalised ‘Handwritten Bangle’ for only £26 or (a personal favourite) Valentines Malteser Red Drizzle, Heart Tree for only £24.99… let literally look amazing!
I’ve also always found their customer service to be impeccable.
Becca Cosmetics is a brand I had heard of and only bought once or twice but only because becoming a mum has led me to curb my excessive lipstick collection.
There gorgeous products are fantastic quality and great addition to any growing makeup bag.
Loved by Khloe Kardashian the intense lipstick shades retail from as little as $24.00 and the Skin Perfector Liquid from just $41.00. The perfector liquid is a personal fave. It is a sheer liquid highlighter that subtly illuminates skin so beautifully.
