This is definitely a post to subtly leave open on your computer at home, just as your husband or boyfriend walks in… Valentines Day is just around the corner and although it’s now deemed by many to be too commercial, I do think it’s an opportunity to cherish the loved ones in your life and take stock as to how lucky we are. I’ve been known to give Valentines tokens to my colleagues, friends, mum, even postman (he delivers a lot of heavy stuff to me practically every day!) so why not treat your special someone (or yourself) to something sweet and thoughtful this forthcoming February 14th? I’ve picked eight fabulous beauty gifts that would put a smile on any face.
Chloe ‘Love Story’ Eau de Perfum (£65.00)
latest launch from the Chloe fragrance house is inspired by the
on the Parisian bridge of the Pont des Arts. With clean and fresh notes
neroli, orange blossom and stephanotis, the scent is delightfully chic
with just a touch of something sexy. I adore the elegant packaging,
making this the perfect gift for a special lady that loves anything
Arran Aromatics Stargazer Valentines Candle (£20.00)
This beautifully scented wax candle is presented in a heart shaped box, meaning there’s no need to even faff around with packaging. It offers up to 25 hours of burn time, while the glass is printed with a delicate design that ensures this is something to be treasured. The fragrance is described as: “a beautiful contrast of fresh white floral jasmine, orange flower and tuberose to create a warming, sensual aroma.” It’s definitely a candle you’ll want to light on a cold, dark winter’s evening.
Burberry Spring Nail Polish Collection (£15.00)
dusty pink polish is the perfect shade to adorn on Valentines night, as
well as throughout the spring period. Burberry polishes aren’t exactly
Barry M prices, making them a rarely justifiable treat that’s often left for
special occasions. A little polish and a box of chocolates is the
perfect treat for any beauty lover, while offering them something on-trend and totally current.
Zoeva Rose Gold Makeup Brushes (£55.00)
tools don’t have to just be functional, as this beautiful collection
from Zoeva proves. Packaged in an indulgent metallic clutch, these
makeup brushes are something to be treasured every single time they’re
used. The rose gold touches make them Valentines appropriate, while the
super soft bristles ensure a perfect result.
Venus With Love Locket Necklace (From £15.00)
you want to show a loved one how much you care, then what better way
than with a keepsake filled with trinkets that illustrate your love?
Fill it with initials, birthstones, significant milestones or simply
bits and bobs that they’ll love. Prices start from £15.00, making this a
really affordable way to give your loved one something personalised and
Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Bath Oil (£40.00)
The scent of Pomegranate Noir Bath Oil rising from a warm, steamy bath is the ultimate indulgence for the senses. Notes of pomegranate, casablanca lily and guaiacwood infuse the air while providing a lingering scent on the skin. Although this is definitely a complete indulgence, the beautiful vintage bottle make this a gift worth giving – and receiving – any day of the year.
Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick (£26.00)
Saturate your lips with high impact colour and a comfortable result; no woman can resist the glamour of a luxurious red lipstick, but often can’t justify spending such a large amount on herself. I know I’d be delighted to receive a bullet full of colour that I could treasure all the way until next Valentines… Especially if it was wrapped up in a little black Chanel bag.
Diptyque Roses Candle (£40.00)
is probably one of my favourite scents, helping to comfort and cocoon my senses. I adore anything that evokes the same feeling as a
freshly bought bunch of roses or box of turkish delight, and this
beautiful candle does just that. Diptyque’s candles are definitely some of the best and make perfect gifts – as well as setting the scene for a cosy night in.
