Whilst I am never going to turn my nose up at a box of chocolates and a bunch of flowers, I have to admit that I love a special gift that is just a little bit different. I love knick knacks, beauty treats and I will always be a sucker for a good accessory. So, I thought I would gather together some of the things that I adore and think would make the most amazing gifts this Valentine’s day. Go on, time to get hinting…
1. Treat Yo Self Print by Cat Coquillette £24.00
Parks and Rec forever. I adore Cat Coquillette’s prints and this one never fails to make me smile. Her shop is full of gorgeous prints with quotes to make you happy and I reckon anyone would love to have one of these to keep.
2. Giraffe Ring Holder by Umbra £8.75
Because what girl doesn’t love a trinket holder? The whole range of these sweet animal ring holders are too cute to believe and make the perfect little gift. They have elephants and bunnies too and I want them all!
3. The Workshop Ring Box £95.00
I actually won this in a twitter competition and I am so impressed by it. Basically, it is everything you need to carve and shape your perfect ring out of wax. Then you send it back to The Workshop and they cast a solid silver or gold ring from your design. I absolutely cannot wait to recieve mine back and I can’t image a better romantic guesture. They also do workshops you can attend if you prefer a little more guidance whilst you learn how to make your own ring. I am so in love with this whole company!
4. The Lookfantastic Beauty Box #LFLOVES Edit £15.00
The best kind of present for a beauty fanatic. The February #LFBEAUTYBOX makes me smile every time I look at it, That box! The magazine! The contents! I think these make such a good present and this one is just too perfect for Valentine’s day.
5. Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Bath Oil and Blush Suede and Peony Cologne £54.00 and £42.00
Jo Malone will forever be my favourite. The Pomegranate Noir I wore on my wedding day and I just adore it. Whether it be a bath oil, a candle, or a cologne, nothing feels like more of a treat. Total luxury.
6. Karl Lagerfeld Cross Body Bag £195
For the real big spenders out there, I really think that nothing is better than a gorgeous bag. Especially if it is a ridiculously cute mini cross body bag with gold hardware. I honestly love this bag far more than I should and I don’t think I am the only one that would feel like that. Guaranteed to earn months and months of brownie points!
Will any of these going on your wishlist? Or are you a traditional card and flowers kind of person? Either way, I hope you have a wonderful galentine/valentine/me time day!
