Less than 2 weeks to the big day so those of you who have Interflora on speed dial and think you are still in the 90s then think again, look at this list of gifts that we really would like. Flowers are for life so take to surprising your woman with those all year round, Valentines day deserves something a little more special…
A personalised necklace from Jewellery box. I firmly believe Valentines should be a day for love no matter who you are and since I have no significant other this year I am taking to treating my girls. We all have necklaces which I think are so cute and the start of the girls proper jewellery collection, the fact I get to give them their first pieces is really special. The fact it also signifies the relationship the girls have is completely by chance – Amelia got a little cat and Evie the bird… since Amelia constantly has Evies life I think this speaks volumes in my unintentional choice of jewellery for them!
Chocolate are always a good option, I am on Slimming World and I still love to receive chocolates. I ration them out and its a treat at the end of the day and something to look forward to – especially if they are as cute as the Jenny Wren collections. Presented in little drawers that you can use for countless things once the chocolates have gone, these handmade chocolates are all kinds of droolworthy including champagne, cherries and Grand Marnier! On offer at the moment too – £6.50 from Sainsburys!
One of my favourite chocolates are the dreamy Guylian seashells! I mentioned these in my Christmas gift guide as I truly believe they should be given and received all year round. These very moreish chocolates are best left to melt in the mouth and since they all taste the same there is no fight to leave behind the ones you don’t like – you will like them all!!
We all love receiving love notes and what better way than sending messages via text. Nothing makes you smile more than waking up to ‘Good morning Gorgeous’ or ‘Miss You Babe’. The Alcatel U5 4G Smartphone has a 5 megapixel rear camera which makes it the perfect phone for loved up selfies too. With Face Mask offering dramatic masks and sounds to personalise your pictures and video clips this could be the cutest way to keep in touch. From £64.95 from Argos.
Everyone loves a candle or two and since the revival of Hygge these little cosy companions have seen a boom in popularity. I am a total convert to body candles which can be melted and used as massage oils and Mummy loves Organic have produced a heady range to calm, relax and invigorate this Valentines day! Light the candle for 30 minutes to enjoy the wonderful aroma, allowing it to form a therapeutic pool of oil. Blow out and allow to cool for 2 minutes. Drizzle the wonderful warm scented oils over any part of your body in need of treatment. £35 each
I hope you all get what you wish for this Valentines day, whether that be a candle, a box of chocolates or just 5 minutes to go to the loo in peace! The joys of being a mummy outweigh all the gifts but just once I think we would all just love a bath alone too!
I was gifted some of the items above for the purpose of this guide.
