Now I’m sure this hasn’t gone unnoticed amongst many of you. But next week is Valentine’s Day. A day designed to show your affection for the one you love. Now I know not everyone celebrates Valentine’s Day. But if you do, then with only a week to go until the day of love, here is my guide on finding the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. And if you don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, then please use this guide to help you pick what to treat yourself to next. As after all, we all deserve a treat or two don’t we?
So let’s start with the fragrances.
Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely Fragrance
This is the classic fragrance from Sarah Jessica Parker’s range and I have to say it really is lovely. It’s a delicate scent that oozes femininity and romance with notes of lavender and apple martini. It honestly smells absolutely delightful and the bottle is oh so cute!
Star Wars Fragrances
Perhaps your Valentine is a Star Wars fan. If they are then these fragrances are probably perfect for them. Especially as they’re unisex scents. I have two of them – Light which is a strong but fresh fragrance with notes of Rosemary, Cardamon, Sandalwood and Patchouli. And Rey which is a powerful but fruity scent with notes of Mandarin, Jasmine, Honeysuckle, Cassis & Amber.
Leighton Denny Light & Dark Eau De Parfum
If you;re looking for some different fragrances then you really need to try these Leighten Denny ones out. With four scents to choose from, there’s something for everyone here. From left to right you have: Desire (unisex) has a mix of vetivert, patchouli and cedar tempered with moss, amber and crisp spicy elements of pepper and nutmeg. Along with citrus top notes of grapefruit, lemon and bergamot. Lively (unisex) gives sparkling citrus notes of bergamot, lemon and grapefruit entwined with beautiful white florals and a warm spicy accord of nutmeg, ginger, pepper and cardamom. Delightful is a luminous and sensual scent with a mix of red fruits, lotus flower, mirabilis jasmine and pink violet. And finally Original is a fruity mixture of pepper, myrrh and incense, offering a warm welcoming unique fragrance. With its heart of gardenia, jasmine, lily and rose, which are merged with top notes of mandarin, grapefruit peach and white pepper.
Next up are candles. Even if it wasn’t Valentine’s Day next week. Candles are always a great gift idea.
Rathbornes Wild Mint, Watercress & Thyme Candle
When it comes to candles, it doesn’t get more luxurious than a Rathbornes candle. As the world’s oldest candle makers, their candles are a real treat for your home. With sharp and sweet top notes of mint, lemon and eucalyptus, mixed with rosemary. This complex herbal blend is warmed by base notes of thyme and ginger, and smells absolutely beautiful!
Ted Baker New York Candle
If you want a slightly more stylish and chic candle then the Ted Baker ones might be the ones for you. Not only is it a beautiful design but the smell is gorgeous! It’s a beautiful blend of Vanilla and Cedarwood that makes for a real warming and inviting fragrance.
And finally it’s time for the beauty and pamper gifts. Because who doesn’t love a little pamper session?
Now I have the larger version of this which is responsible for giving my skin a gorgeous glow. So this mini version is perfect for those who want the benefits of healthy skin in a portable device. Once charged you can use it up to 100 times and this is perfect for those who do a lot of travelling.
Patisserie De Bain
This is such a fun bath range. The whole Paisserie De Bain is lovely to use and incredibly affordable. With a romantic blend of crèmes, lotions and melts, anything from the range would make a great gift this year.
Ciate Pretty Stix Lipsticks
How pretty are these gorgeous Pretty Stix lipsticks from Ciate? I love the packaging details and the fact that these have a high-shine pigmented finish. They’re also super creamy with a buttery texture that offers intense hydration and long-lasting colour.
