Valentine’s Day Gifts That Are WAY Better Than Chocolate And Flowers

Hey Lovelies!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whilst we are aware it may well be yet another well-marketed way of cashing in on the customer, we need something to cheer us up on the frankly freezing cold and dreary winter mornings – and what better way of doing this than imagining the postman falling over as he struggles to carry a tonne of cards and presents to your door? For anyone wondering what to gift the love of their life this February 14, read on:

1.Personalised Wood Memory Box For Couples by DUST AND THINGS, £17.49 (Was £34.99), notonthehighstreet.com

As far as romance goes – this is way up there. Made from solid pine wood, this rustic-looking personalised memory is the perfect gift for you to keep tokens of your sweetest memories and experiences safe, so they can be treasured forever.

2.Return To Tiffany Bead Bracelet, £145, tiffany.co.uk

OK, so maybe there is something that beats the memory box; behold the Tiffany’s Bead Bracelet. As a true sucker for all Tiffany’s jewellery, I may be slightly biased – but I think this beautifully elegant bead bracelet featuring a mini heart tag in pink would be a winner this Valentine’s Day.

3.Personalised Plaited Leather Bracelet, £14.99, prezzybox.com

Whilst it might not go down to well should he buy you an expensive Tiffany’s bracelet and I return you gifted him this – something has to be said for the romantic gesture this man’s bracelet evokes. Featuring a matte metal engraved charm, he doesn’t need to be a hippie or surfer to appreciate this gorgeously stylish band. After all, each time he glances at his watch/Fitbit/sleeve he will (hopefully) smile at your thoughtful declaration of love.

4.Personalised I Love You Candle, £8.99, findmeagift.co.uk

Everyone loves a candle, don’t they? Even if they aren’t at the top of your fave list, come the most romantic night of the year, these little gems are a must-have. So, what better way to show your adoration for that special someone by making them their perfect meal, amidst candlelight that is that little bit more special?

5.Multi Photo Upload Framed Print – Photos With Message, £19.99, gettingpersonal.co.uk

In a recent study whereby, prosecco and champagne were given to blindfolded customers, the customers chose the prosecco as their favourite. Although I would never turn down the Veuve Clicquot, this prosecco is the next best thing (and once your guests have enjoyed a Baileys or two, you can tell them it’s Veuve Clicquot and they probs won’t even realise!). Win, win.

4.Mum And Best Friend Bracelet, £14.99, eBay.co.uk

Nothing makes your heart melt more than receiving a gift from your child. I was overjoyed when I opened two hand-made cards (always the best) but couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this. Thank you to my two angels!

5.Isotoner Black Faux Fur Thermal Gloves, £111.20 (was £14), debenhams.com

I’m so grateful for these – not only because they are on-trend, but I get the feeling that although it’s bizarrely mild weather in the UK right now, I get the feeling we are yet to experience the ‘real’ winter.

I hope all of you received some gorgeous gifts this Christmas and have had an amazing time. Pease leave any messages/comments below xx

Last-Minute Beauty Stocking Fillers For Under £40

Hey Lovelies!

Well, it’s just over a week until Santa tackles the chimney (excuse me while I nip outside to scream in sheer panic). If like me, you’ve almost run out of cash and at present the stockings don’t exactly look brimming, read on. Here are some amazing beauty stocking filler gifts (at such a good price you can even buy 2 of each and keep one for yourself). #Hohoho!

1.Benefit Benetint Lip And Cheek COlor, £21.67 (Saving £3.83 Online Only), boots.com

For beauty lovers of all ages, check out this amazing stocking filler gift. Whether the colour in your lips is beginning to fade and you want to inject a boost of beautiful colour for Christmas or are simply after a key colour trend to see you through party season, Benefit’s Benetint is the perfect answer.

My advice – don’t think of this as a lipstick per se when applying to your lips. When I first tried this I simply brushed it on – big mistake. What you need to actually do is brush a few drops on and blend, repeating the process until you achieve the desired colour. The results are a gorgeous rosy glow that truly lasts. LOVE!

2.L’Oreal Double Extension Beauty Tubes Mascara, £11.99, Superdrug

Do you know someone who loves the extra-long lash look? Instead of buying more falsies (that are bound to hang off by their third cocktail) why not treat them to the next best thing? L’Oreal’s Double Extension Mascara offers a two-step system comprising of a conditioning base coat  (loaded with Ceramide R and containing fibres), of which ensures a luscious lengthening effect. The other side gives your lashes that much sought-after deep colour. This is one of my favourite mascaras – no clumping, smudging or mess – just stunning lashes!

3.Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Duo Gift Set, £36 (Worth £48), feelunique.com

If you read my recent article on the best setting sprays, you will know Urban Decay is one of my most treasured brands.  Their innovative formula combines Proprietary Temperature Control Technology that will prevent your makeup (and you) from going into meltdown mode. This super long-lasting spray means that you can stop worrying about the whether or not your makeup still looks amazing (then going to the bathroom, looking aghast at your reflection and spending the following 20 minutes trying to work out if the hot guy who smiled at you might actually have been smiling for the wrong reason). With Urban Decay’s magic All Nighter you can simply get on with enjoying the evening and know that everyone will be smiling at you for the right reasons!

Have an amazing Christmas! xx
