Perfect Picks For Valentine's.

|
With Valentine's Day being just around the corner, today I thought that I would post my Valentine's gift guide before it's too late to buy your loved one a gift. Now normally both my husband and I tell one another that we won't do Valentine's Day as we celebrate our wedding anniversary a month later. But every year he walks in the house with a bouquet of flowers and chocolates. But saying that, most people like to feel a little appreciated on the big day of LOVE!



So I thought that I would compile a little gift guide this year, nothing gets me excited more than creating some flat lays. In this gift guide, I have put together a couple of ideas that I would love to receive on Valentine's Day, but if I am honest I'd be happy with some chocolate or tulips! So I guess the first place we need to start is lingerie. Let's be honest, you can't go wrong with this one. Whether you're looking for something feminine, sexy, or lingerie that provides figure flattering appeal on your curves this beautiful piece from Hunkem√∂ller will be perfect. The Doutzen Allover Lace Top is so pretty, looks elegant and is super sexy. It's made from a semi-transparent all over lace with intricate dealing and a beautiful plunge neckline that is an irresistible choice, this Doutzen all over lace is far more luxurious that it's £20 price tag. As for the finishing touches, the all over lace features spaghetti straps with custom metal embellishment to add an elegant touch. 

Being someone who loves stationary, I have to add this into the gift guide really. The Gifted Notebook* has a selection of luxury notebooks that make the perfect present for both men and women. Hand selected from a range of European designers, each notebook is carefully crafted with a selection of delicately embossed or more colourful and creative covers. Available with lined or plain paper, some of the notebooks also come with accompanying pencil. Helping to make a lasting first-impression, these notebooks can be used for work, when out and about or at home. Ideal for scribbling your inner most thoughts and feelings or simply to remind you of your work commitments or shopping list, they are the perfect personal gift. 


Jewellery is also something that will always be appreciated. I have some of these cute earrings from Next which are of course in Rose Gold. However if you're looking for something more special the How beautiful is this Personalised Bar Necklace* from Find Me a Gift? I know that this one is going to become one of my favourites and the fact that it's personalised with my daughter's name, make even more special This gorgeous necklace features a bar hanging vertically from a chain; it's a simple but striking design, suitable for everyday wear.


Beauty. Now if I am honest we could be here for hours. But we've all got places to go. But here are some of my beauty picks. Something that I have been really enjoying at the moment is this oh so cute palette from MEMI Makeup. Anyone will be able to unleash their inner millennial with this amazing collection of 12 pigment rich matte and shimmer finish shadows. This palette is by far my favourite as it offers a range of surprising different range of neutral hues that you can mix and match to create some beautiful looks. Benefit Black 'BADgal' Bang Volumising Mascara is incredible and would be the perfect gift for Valentine's. The formula is jet black so it makes your lashes pop. it’s super lightweight, yet the volume and length it gives are the best I’ve ever seen! The wand is beautiful, so many bristles, nice and flexible and it tapers so I can get every single lash. My lashes have never looked so good! Not forgetting their nails! Ciate keep it simple and classy with the only go-to nude you'll ever need this season, making sure their nail are perfected with this Leighton Denny crystal nail file. 


A gift that will make her smile will undoubtedly be this little beauty from The Body Shop. With this Mango Essential Collection you'll be able to treat someone to this fabulously fruity and brilliant value bundle of goodies. It’s beautifully boxed and ready to gift, and is the easiest, most fun and thoughtful way to tell someone you love them. In this box you will receive a Shower Gel Mango, Body Scrub Mango, Body Butter Mango, Soap Mango, Bath Lily in Orange.


Something a little different?The Hero Project Glow Drops Facial Oil. Skin will have an instant, youthful glow and radiant texture when you use this must-have dry touch oil. Glow Drops® features 10 gloriously scented natural essential oils blended with Vitamin C. What’s more, the bottle has amazing Last Drop Technology that keeps you Gorgeous to the last drop®, ensuring you get to benefit from every single drop of glowy goodness.



Now for those who like a indulgent evening or two a week then this Olverum Bath Oil is hands down the most luxurious bathing experience they will ever have. EVER! Olverum is a highly concentrated therapeutic bath oil which contains 10 essential oils, the formulation has remained largely unchanged for a staggering 83 years. Why mess with perfection I say! A bit of a cliche, but perfume is a pretty safe bet when it comes your loved one. Some of my favourites are Chlo√©Calvin Klein: Down TownMarc Jacobs Daisy, and Yves Saint Laurent - 'Black Opium'. Though I must say I am always open to trying new fragrances. 


Flowers are always a goof shout, and pretty in demand this time of year. So make sure you order yours now. 123 Flowers has an array of gorgeous bouquets for all occasions, so there is something for everyone. Their flowers arrive fresh daily from trusted farms in Holland and Kenya and each bouquet is hand tied by their talented florists with care to make sure your gesture gives maximum impact. You could even get some artificial flowers because they do last a little longer! Not forgetting chocolate is a great option too. So, there you have it, my perfect picks for Valentine's Day. I'm more than sure that by now, you're feeling a little more inspired about what to get for her.
