A Valentine's Gift Guide

As Valentine's Day is just around the corner, what better time to write a little gift guide for you. We don't typically exchange gifts for Valentine's Day, perhaps something small, if anything. I have a wide variety of options for you, including different price points so it can cater all budgets. Most people like to feel a little appreciated on the big day of LOVE so why not show them you care with some of our Valentine's Picks.

For The One Who Loves Beauty & Skincare...

Now it couldn't be a gift guide without some kind of mention of a makeup treat can it? As you know I am beauty girl who love great price and I say this time and time again in my post, you can never go wrong with Makeup Revolution. I think my favourite pick from all these amazing products has to be that beautiful colourful Makeup Revolution Reloaded Fundamental Palette. 15 shade eye shadow palettes that are bound to pack a punch at an affordable price. Warm burnt shades for lovers of orange, pinks and neutrals, in a variety of matte and shimmer shades. I cannot believe the price of this palette and the fact that you can create so many different looks all from one palette really amazes me.

How about a skincare treat? What better way to spoil a loved one and show them that you really care that with this African Extracts Rooiboos CLASSIC 3-Step Everyday Starter Kit. It's a great way to show them you care and a great way to help kick start a daily routine, or to use if your skin needs a little shake up! The CLASSIC selection that is suitable for all women of all ages with most skin types. As a combi girl, it can be pretty hard to get product that caters to both issues as I have dry cheeks and chin but an oily t-zone. African Extracts is a skin care range, with all the protective, soothing benefits of Bio-Active Rooibos, chamomile and Vitamin E to keep your skin looking and feeling beautiful. This gift set included a cleansing lotion, toner, and a day cream SPF15 which is a great way to kick start a new skincare routine.

I have seen a couple of fantastic deals online and out and about in town. Fragrance is always a winner. My favourites this year are Jimmy Choo Fever and Calvin Klein Obsessed for Women. They both smell incredible and are long lasting which can be hard to find sometimes. A fairly new discovery for me is Jimmy Choo Blossom which is a floral fragrance that opens with bright and sparkling top notes of red berries blended with a citrus cocktail. A delicate heart of sweet pea and rose complements rich and sensual base notes of white musk and sandalwood.

For The One Who Likes To Keep Things Simple...

Candles are always a winner in my book, however these are candles with a difference! A sweet geometric design bunny candle with a dark secret, light the wick on the Hoppa Pyro Pet candle and the outer wax layer will slowly melt away to reveal a sinister skeleton within! A bunny with a split personality. This Hoppa White candle is a lot bigger than you'd think but very lightweight, these Hoppas are available in a neutral white, black, soft peach, and coral so these little bunnies will go with most decors. However there are so many different colours and designs that you can choose to cater to different likes and taste just like the lovely Einar Unicorn Lilac or the Dýri Reindeer White.

The Sweeter, the Better...

Is there anything more simple than a gorgeous cup of sweetness? Whittard of Chelsea has this limited edition Rhubarb & Custard Flavour White Hot Chocolate and it's pretty good. Not everyone in this household likes it, but me? I really liked it. It reminds me vintage sweet shops. The sherbet-sweet flavours of rhubarb and creamy custard on a white chocolate base for a luscious pink treat, a perfect combination.

For The One Who Likes A Clean Cut...

Men are really hard to buy but a razor is always something that they need and they can never have too many. The Bluebeards Revenge offer a range of barber-grade shaving, beard grooming, skincare and hair styling products for all - they have quite an impressive range for those with troubled stubble, goatee to full on beard. This gift set included a Cutlass Double-Edge Safety Razor with the signature Bluebeards Revenge shaving cream to give them the ultimate shaving experience. The Bluebeards Revenge are proud to be in partnership with The Lions Barber Collective charity and have come together to help raise awareness and prevent male depression and suicide with their "Man Up and Talk" campaign. It's always great to see brands getting involved with charities.

For The One With a Little Style...

Now a gift that you can't go wrong with is an aftershave. You could head over to the closest fragrance shop and enjoy a spritz or two. My husband loves Paca Rabanne and Prada Luna Rossa Black but another aftershave he really wants to try is Calvin Klein Obsessed for him and it really does smell so good. As my husband is an engineer he is always in the mood to get his hands dirty, so this Letterman FREE P4 Multipurpose Pliers are the perfect gift for him. With 21 tools that are held closed by the magnetic architecture and open with a push of the thumb, it will keep his hands very busy. It's convenient, versatile utility, and by so vastly better than any other tool he has. 

For the lady in your life a little luxury will always the way to go. Sometimes the simplest styles can be the most striking. Browse Nordgreen Watches and their extensive collection of watches you will be able to get something to suit your style. Scandinavian fashion is a timeless style and can be coordinated with so many different ranges at Nordgreen. You can choose from the Native, Philosopher, or Infinity analogue timepieces and mix and match with a wide range of different metals, colours and types. If you're looking for a minimalist yet sophisticated style will most definitely make a statement. Just like a classic choice of a gold case and a gold mesh strap, but for those days where you want something more practical then there are so many different coloured leather straps available.

For The One Who Likes to Indulge...

Would it even be Valentine's without a glass of bubbly? Nothing wins brownie points more than a beautifully presented bottle of fizz and chocolates, or truffles in this case. Abel & Cole has some of the most delicious gift ideas for loved one and this Prosecco & Truffle Set is the perfect way to say I LOVE YOU! A glass of bubbly and indulgent truffles just go together, don’t they? In this gift set there is a bottle of classic Prosecco Frizzante and extra-special handmade, organic champagne truffles to give that special someone. With a focus on organic, seasonal, wild food that’s extra special there is endless choice with Abel & Cole. They offer brilliant recipes with step by step instruction using the best ingredients in their recipe boxes, juice and smoothie boxes. In addition to organic wholefoods they have some many products for the home such as laundry, bathroom and kitchen essentials, toiletries and even pet food.

How about something a little different? Coole Swan Irish Cream Liqueur a unique blend of Irish Single Malt Whiskey, Fresh Irish Cream and White Belgian Chocolate. Yes please! This would be great gift idea if you're planning on making a romantic meal for two and you want to male a couple of cocktails like a Coole Daiquiri or a Pina Coolelada. Fresh vanilla cream combines with creamy chocolate and refined top-notes of rich cocoa and delicate hints of soft whisky to give your taste buds an experience you will never forget. 

Or how about this Chocolate Prosecco and Strawberries gift set? Made from the finest pure Belgian chocolate this punnet of strawberries and solid white chocolate celebratory bottle is the perfect gift for a love one. What makes this gift a little special is that is is beautifully packaged in a luxurious hamper box this delicious duo will make your loved one feel truly special. They really look too good to eat.

For The One Who Loves a Pud...

Light the scented candles, stick on love tunes on the stereo and cook up one of the romantic meal ideas that you have been thinking about. But for a romantic pud? Why not create your own? For those who are looking for something that is organic, vegan friendly or free from then Creative Nature who specialise in healthfoods are your only choice. Their ranges include healthy flapjack bars, superfood powders, green powders wholefoods and breakfast toppings. An impressive range. They even have baking mixes such a chocolate chip brownie. banana bread or muffin mixes. So get into that kitchen and be creative without too much hassle.

I really do hope that my gift guide inspires you, even a little.
