Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day
Friday, 8 Feb 2019
Today I am sharing a few Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day, and to be honest, you would probably want to buy a few of them for yourself! There is something for all tastes, and all budgets, but let me warn you it is a long post.
Unfortunately the Valentine’s Day Grinch has caught the Lush Valentine’s Collection at sea, but luckily there are *all year round products that are just perfect. Hopefully the collection will still arrive in time, so keep an eye on their social media pages for updates.
You definitely can’t go wrong with a Lush Bath Bomb, especially Goddess, it has the most amazing floral scent and will turn your bath into heavenly silver and purple creamy water! The Sex Bomb Bath Bomb with Jasmine and Ylang Ylang will calm your mind and leave you feeling relaxed. Other favourites of mine are the Tender Is The Night Massage Bar for a night of romantic pampering and Ro’s Argan for an in-shower moisturiser that smells like a bed of roses. New to my life, and that I am ever so grateful for are the Rock Star Soap, Silky Underwear Dusting Powder and Bubblegum Lip Scrub which I think would make anyone happy.
Speaking of calming your mind and feeling relaxed, Duo Calm, a new product from Fusion Labs does just that. I have been struggling to sleep recently, thank you stress and anxiety, and taking one of these before bed has really helped me have a more restful sleep. I have also been a huge fan of Trichotin for hair loss and Dermagen for skin radiance for quite some time, and if your partner struggles with any of these issues, I am sure these luxury supplements would be highly appreciated.
But, before bed, a massage would be appreciated, and an oil or massage candle are both good options. Because I love the scent of Jasmine, the *Spalicious Jasmine Flower Bath, Body & Massage Oil is a great pick, and I love that it has multiple uses. The new *Theravine Aromavine Massage Candle combines two of my favourite flowers, Franipani and Jasmine for an amazing pamper.
For makeup lovers, the Real Techniques Setting Brush is a winner, as is the WetnWild Liquid Catsuit Lipstick, both are affordable options too. The only downside about wearing makeup, is having to remove it, but this Ciate Makeup Melter makes the job really easy.
You can never go wrong with a fragrance either, and the new *OUI fragrance from Juicy Couture is young, but sophisticated, and the bottle is just a stunner!
One of my favourite hair treatments is the Kerastase Elixir Ultime, and every single person I know that has tried it, has loved it too!
It is always hard to buy skincare for someone else, but I have three picks that would be perfect for the skincare obsessed. The REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask is a firm favourite to get rid of dull skin and increase radiance. The *Filorga NCEF Night Mask is the perfect overnight treat to leave skin looking plump, healthier and more refined by morning. Lastly I have the *Skin Smoothing Cream from Dermalogica, a medium weight moisturiser that is suitable for most skin types. It soothes and hydrates, but also protects against environmental aggressors.
Found nothing so far? One of my favourite gifts, and something that I always mention when I am asked for a wishlist is home fragrance, whether it is a scented candle or a diffuser. I love the luxury options like Diptyque and Jo Malone but there are such wonderful affordable options too. The Lotus Flower candle below is from MRP Home, and look how stunning the packaging is. The diffuser is Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow from Beauty Factory and it smells so good, it fills the room so well! For a few luxury home fragrance picks you can check out this post. Although soap seems like a very mundane gift, scented soaps is one of my little pleasures, and would mean a lot to a new home owner. These options by *Morlage & York smell amazing and last long and are wrapped in the most beautiful packaging. My favourite is obviously the jasmine one!
Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to show the ones you love how special they are to you, whether it is your partner, mom, sister or best friend. We are all guilty of not being appreciative or grateful enough, and even though a commercialised day shouldn’t be the only time we show people how much they mean to us, it is a good excuse to spoil someone special and maybe yourself too. I hope you found some gift ideas, I also have a gift guide that I put together for Christmas that would still be relevant.
