Valentine's Day Gift Ideas!

Its nearly Valentine's day peeps and if you are finding yourselves somewhat short of inspiration then hopefully this post will help you out!

Chocolates are lovely and flowers are pretty, but there are so many other fab products out there that don’t cost the earth and that are guaranteed to make your other half feel very spoilt and lucky, whatever type of lady she is!

If you don't have a someone special to buy or make suggestions for (or a partner that doesnt 'believe' in Valentine's day....) then you can always just treat yourself! 

There is something for everyone, so take a look and I hope you feel inspired! 

Krispy Kreme Limited Edition Valentine's Day Doughnuts: For the Foodie

There’s no better way of saying I love you than with baked goods, so thanks Krispy Kreme for your two special Valentine's day offering!

First is their Red Velvet doughnut cake is dipped in white chocolate icing, filled with cream cheese and topped with a sprinkle of candy hearts.

The Chocolate Truffle is their other delicious item, a heart shaped doughnut, dipped in Belgian chocolate icing, filled with chocolate truffle cream and strawberry jam.

Hotel Chocolate Cocoa Juvenate : For the Choca-holic (minus the calories!) 

Yes, didn’t you know, Hotel Chocolat now have their own skincare range, Cocoa Juvenate! 

(well, they do know all about the benefits of cocoa!)

The range is rich in full of the wonderful benefits of Cocoa without the calories; antioxidants, vitamins and minerals 

Despite being products of Hotel Chocolat, the products don’t smell of chocolate, rather, imagine invigorating scent inspired by freshly cut cocoa pods with notes of bergamot, green tea, lime, exotic florals and warm sandalwood.

My personal favourite is their Revive Body Butter (£20). It is light and fluffy to touch but deliciously nourishing and leaves your skin feeling and smelling like you’ve just stepped out of a spa!

Cadbury have just launched a brand new personalised gifting service called Joyville Made.

new cid: iblossom blush: For the Beauty Addict

Bring a natural and gorgeous colour to your cheeks this Valentine’s day with a pretty blush from new cid cosmetics called iblossom (£18.50).

This silky powder blusher stamp with mirror with simple-to-use sponge applicator adds an instant healthy flush of colour to the cheeks.

Yes, it looks kind of like a stamp, but i really rather like the packaging, its different from anything else I’ve seen on the market.

I love iblossom in shade Rose which is a really pretty, girly pink shade with a hint of shimmer.

Pink to make the boys wink girls!

Les Senteurs Gourmandes Vanille Chocolat : For The Fragrance Connoisseur

Seduce your fragrance connoisseur this Valentine’s day with a beautiful fragrance from Les Senteurs Gourmandes.

 Intertwined with a sensual base of Vanilla, the alluring Gourmand notes never fail in their power to seduce and enthral.

Available from Marks & Spencer, the collection comprises of a range of delectable fragrances, each based around the sweetness and distinctiveness of Vanilla.

One of my favourite from the range is Vanille Chocolat.

(See, another great chocolaty based gift without the calories!)

Vanille Chocolat smells exactly as the name suggests, of intense, bitter aromas of chocolate mixed with warm vanilla which creates gorgeous, distinctive notes with tobacco accents.

It is also, if I may say so, a total dupe for Thierry Mugler’s  Angel. 

The Les Senteurs Gourmandes range and the Vanille Chocolat  EDP is available from Marks & Spencer for £22.50  for 100ml.

Simply Beach: Gossard Femme Fatale Lingerie set: For the Fashionista

 Lingerie has always been and will probably always be synonymous with Valentine’s day, but ‘sexy’ doesn’t have to mean cheap and nasty.

Simply Beach have a stunning range of gorgeous lingerie perfect for this Valentine’s day.

One of my favourite items is the Gossard Femme Fatale set, for obvious reasons- Its lush!


The Femme Fatale Plunge Bra (£36) is a beautiful lace bra with delicate sequins designed to give an eye catching, deep cleavage. 

This underwired bra gives you the support you need without hoiking your boobs up under your chin and is sexy while also sophisticated and chic.
