Valentine's Gift Ideas For Her

This year, Boyfriend and I have decided to keep Valentine's Day really low-key. With the wedding coming up, and lots of things we need to do, we are just keeping 14th February really understated. Our plan is to cook a nice meal and just spend some quality time together before things get really crazy.

Valentine's Day is about celebrating all kinds of love, so with that in mind, my gift guide this year is one that can be applied for a special lady in your life - be that a partner, a best friend, a relative, or yourself. Love comes in many forms, and, contrary to what society may tell us, this special day should be about recognising all the different forms of love we have in our lives.

It wouldn't be a gift guide of mine without mentioning something from ESPA Skincare. We all know how much I love this brand. If you are buying for someone who loves to soak in a roasting hot bath and completely pamper themselves, the Bath Oil Collection  would make a perfect little luxurious present, and provide the chance to sample a range of different blends. It's also a great gift to introduce somebody to the brand.

Following on with the pampering theme, you simply cannot go wrong with a bottle of fizz, a box of her favourite chocolates, or bouquet of flowers. I get so excited when Boyfriend surprises me with flowers. It's always such a surprise. If you are like him, and what I like to call "unexpectedly romantic" then any of these gifts will go down a treat. My favourite luxury chocolates are the Charbonnel et Walker Strawberry Truffles. They are rich, and indulgent, and I feel so naughty eating them because they are a little bit on the more expensive side. For fizz,you can't go wrong with prosecco, Asti, or even champagne, and when it comes to flowers, either fresh or artificial blooms look beautiful, and are a great thing to display. Clock on to what her favourite flowers are, and you're definitely on to scoring more points!

If she loves make up, keeping an ear out and picking her up a gift from her favourite brand to add to her collection would be a fantastic present, and something she would really appreciate. Currently I am lusting after so many Too Faced products. I got the Chocolate Bar Palette with some Christmas money, and I am honestly obsessed with it. Next on my list is the Natural Eyes palette because, quite frankly, I have an eyeshadow problem, and the colours in this collection just look so pretty.

I'm not going to lie to you, when I saw those super cute mugs as I was making this board I knew I had to feature them (you can find them here) But for a lover of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or any warm beverage, a super-cute set of mugs accompanied by their favourite drink would make a great little care package present, especially if they live somewhere cold or are susceptible to feeling the chill easier.

A watch is definitely an awesome accessory, and there are just so many beautiful timepieces out there that you can easily find one to suit your budget. From pretty pinks and rose golds, to watches with big faces, to more classic leather straps or metal links...the options are endless. Spend a little more and get it engraved for extra sentimentality, or go back and buy one you know she's been eyeing up. Watches are one of those things that look good no matter what you wear them with, and never go out of style.

What will you be treating your loved one to this Valentine's Day?

Remember to pamper yourself too!

  1. Love the watch, Olivia Burton have some amazing designs out right now, I'm torn between that and Daniel Wellington, not that I even wear a watch but still, it's nice to have an option!
