Valentine’s Gift Guide 2016

Now, I may have totally let you down when it came to a Christmas gift guide… but never again!

I know you love them, and I should have been more organised.

Hopefully this wee Valentine’s round up will make up for it, even just a little.

Valentine’s Day means different things to different people. Some use it as an excuse to shower their loved one in affection, gifts and attention – to show them how much they appreciate them. Some do cards and cuddles. Some flowers. Some avoid it all together!

There’s no right or wrong way to celebrate, just do whatever feels good. And just incase you feel in the giving mood, here are a few of my suggestions.

Kicking off with bits & bobs for the chap in your life:


Mens Valentines Day gift guide

Barbour weekend bag // Travel backgammon set // His’n’Hers soulmate bangles

Mr Marvelous scent // Leather strap watch

Tom Dixon room scent // Photo frame (filled with a photo of you two)// Taschen Tattoos

Smooth shave set // DW leather strap watch

Red velvet truffles (genius because he’ll share with you!) // Happy socks

Funny skivvies // Sunnies

Though it’s quite possible all he’d really like is this!

And now, a little somethin’ somethin’ for the ladies:


Valentines gift guide

Cocolux candle // Pink Loubies // Chocolate bouquet // Pink Krug

Rose L&J watch // Pink diptyque candle // Spring flowers // Personalised Nutella

Cheeky undies // Copper phone // Josephine candle

Love hearts // Little Kama Sutra // Ship of Magic

Silver May Sparkler Rings // Immortal peonies // Mui Mui shoes

Maybe you’ll fill the house with flowers and pile the bed high with pressies!

Maybe you’ll light all the candles and fill her a bath.

Maybe you’ll cook her a meal or order in.

Maybe you’ll head out for a night on the town.

It’s never about how much you spend, but always about the effort and thought you put into it. Just remember that!

And last but not least, a collection of cards bound to have them grinning from ear to ear:

Valentines cards

Hungry // Yoda // Like you

Chips // It all began (personalised) // Horny

Cheesy // Swiped // Nicely

Duvet // Snoring // Otter // Brie

 So come on, spill! What are your dream V Day plans?

  • Oh great suggestions Rosie! I love your card selection, and so many of them got me chuckling – I so much prefer the lighthearted Valentine cards as opposed to the ones that can have too much of a creepy stalker-ish vibe! xxx

    An overnight at a safari, balloon ride over Napa, or a macron making class are on my wishlist. Anything were I get to actually do something with my sweetie!

  • If anyone’s looking for something cute but very affordable, I picked up this little Hotel Chocolat Valentines selection ( link ) which I think my boyfriend is going to really like! But then again, I’m not sure he would be sophisticated enough to enjoy those leopard print boxers =p
