Valentine’s Day is a week away! I know not everyone is going to be celebrating it, and it may be more of a day to spend with your gal pals. But even so, if there is some gift buying involved, then a few hints and tips along the way are always a good idea. The is though, chocolates and flowers are all very well and good. So you may be looking for something a little ‘outside of the box’. Not to mention, your girl may be the one that has everything, and if she wants new makeup or beauty products then she just buys what she wants because she knows exactly which ones she wants.
So if you’re in that camp, then it can be tricky knowing what to get them. So here are a few gift ideas to help if you don’t have any idea what to buy. Be quick though, you haven’t got long left to buy!
Is it even valentine’s day if you’re not wearing some new lingerie? Heck, even if you’re single just wearing some to work under your regular clothes can feel pretty empowering, am I right? Which is where a brand like Twisted Lingerie comes in. The Xenia classic set (for bra and knicker priced at £50) can work as a day-to-night option, as it would look just as good under a t-shirt as it would in the bedroom.
The designs of the lingerie are stunning, and the sheer material makes for something a little kinkier than your standard bra and knickers. The range is well made and comfy to wear – hello no underwires! I think they would be a good gift for your love, or to even treat yourself to.
Rustic Flower Pen
Some new stationery is always going to go down well (with my anyway). And what is better than something quite unique that is handmade just for her? Rustic by Marney creates a selection of handmade flower pens for all occasions. A red rose one, like the pretty one I have would be perfect for valentines, but it could be made to be her favourite flower. Plus, priced at £6.99, including postage, it works as a gift to supplement alongside something else, or to just get by itself. Talk about a bargain.
Treats Direct Subscription
Having a gift that keeps on giving is always a good idea for the girl that has everything. And a box of chocolates is all the cliché on valentines day. So why not get them a subscription to a sweet delivery service like Treats Direct? In a box that fits through the letterbox, it contains four different kinds of sweets, delivered weekly or fortnightly. It is a fun way for her to remember you all year, as well as satisfy her sweet tooth. The good news is there are so man flavours to try, that it almost brings back a feeling of nostalgia looking through the sweets on their list.
Your first box is £2.49 (and then £3.99 thereafter, both prices including postage), so you can keep the subscription going for as little or as long as you’d like.
Do you celebrate valentine’s day? Have you got any gifts planned? Would love to hear what you think and if you’ve heard of any of these brands before.
