5 awesome Valentines gifts (that aren’t red roses)

Valentines Day is fast approaching and all over the world Florists are rubbing their hands together with glee at the over inflated prices of those long stemmed roses. But roses don’t have to be the only option (especially if theyre purchased on the way home at the “servo”)

Why not scroll through this list of thoughtful and slightly different gifts intended to wow your partner, leave them out for your significant other to see (or lets be honest.. just buy them for yourself cos there aint no bigger #relationshipgoals)

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette

One of the most popular palettes of the year from Eyebrow and now makeup maven Anastasia Beverly Hills is perfect as a gift for your loved one this year. The soft neutral tones accompanied with the rich red and pink tones make for the perfect warm eye look. This palette is fantastic for most skin tones with a wide range of shades to compliment any Valentines outfit.

Perfect red lipstick

The perfect red is hard to find, however by looking at the undertone of the shade you can choose the right shade for yourself * ahem* I mean partner. Some of my favourites include;

Kat Von D’s  bright Bachelorette, Revlon’s brand new Love Is On and the rich Rita from the Nars Audacious Lipstick line.

Peter Alexander Under The Tuscan Sun

Some people love fancy lingerie, others prefer comfort. However comfortable doesnt always equate to pretty and romantic so when I saw Peter Alexander’s latest collection I immediately thought it would make a perfect gift.

Featuring a range of prints inspired by arguably the most romantic country in the world there are bralettes, shorts and nighties in fruity, warm prints and nautical inspired pieces for him.


Personalised products

Nothing adds a touch of luxury like personalizing an item for your loved one. In the last few years a few companies have emerged offering monogrammed leather wear. Mon Purse is one of these companies, they offer pieces from small pouches to larger handbags. My favourite piece they are offering at the moment is the Grainy leather pouch in this gorgeous floral design.



LUSH goodies.

LUSH always bring the goodies. This year is no exception, with products such as the super rosey Love You, Love you lots soap. Rose Bombshell bathbomb and Love struck bubble bar. My favourite item from the line this year however has to be the The Kiss lip scrub, which is not only pink and full of tiny hearts but also smells AMAZING and leave lips feeling (and tasting) good.

Happy Valentines Day lovers!
