We’d suggest casually leaving the page lying open on the iPad or laptop, in the hope that your loved one might just find some inspiration for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Or by all means be totally blatant, use us as show and tell – this, this and this please. Pretty please? We’re happy to help in your quest for the best V Day ever.
1. Diptyque Eau Rose Eau de Toilette Roll-on – £32 (BUY HERE)
We LOVE Diptyque’s limited edition collection with French fashion designer, Olympia Le Tan! The collection centres around a scent designed to celebrate the mystery and allure of a lady’s bag – think rose, lipstick and a hint of leather. There are candles, a scented disc, solid perfume and more within the range, but we think this handy little roll-on perfume is a handbag essential.
2. Biscuiteers Lipstick Biscuit Card – £9 (BUY HERE)
Lipsticks + biscuits = a happy Valentine. These quirky vanilla biscuits are hand-iced to perfection, carefully packed in an illustrated gift box and delivered straight to your Valentine’s door.
3. Charlotte Tilbury 1st Edition Make-up Bag – £15 (BUY HERE)
The ideal make-up bag for Valentine’s day! Adorned with the lip prints of some of the most iconic women in fashion on the front, and a fabulous quote on the back…
“Give a woman the right make-up & she can conquer the world”
Amen to that! For added bonus points, we suggest popping one of Charlotte’s new K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipsticks in the bag – choose from Kiss Chase
or Between The Sheets
A truly beautiful gift. Soigné’s professional Nail Art Tool Kit includes the following –
Dotting Tool: Double-ended with two different size heads, this is perfect for marbling or creating spots on the nail.
Striping Brush: The long slender bristles make this ideal for creating fine, elongated lines without error.
Clean Up Brush: This is ideal for removing nail lacquer from the skin surrounding the nail. Dip the specially designed brush to the nail polish remover and brush away imperfections.
5. Kiko Milano Endless Love Lipstick in Candy Red – £5.90 (BUY HERE)
Red lipstick in the shape of a heart. As Joey Tribbiani would (probably wouldn’t) say, “Could it BE any more Valentiney?”.
6. Kure Bazaar Nail Polish in Fabulous – £15 (BUY HERE)
This sassy vivid pink is sure to make a statement. One of our favourite polish brands, Kure Bazaar offers great nail colour with a conscience. Vegan, and made from 85% natural materials, it goes on like a dream and provides a super glossy finish.
7. Acqua di Parma Rosa Nobile Eau de Toilette – £71 to £91 (BUY HERE)
Romantic, feminine and elegant. This exquisite Italian fragrance is made from essence of hand-picked centifolia roses. Carefully selected, just like your Valentine.
As Lush say… “If there was ever a good reason to get naked, it’s right here in this box.” Wink wink. The heart-shaped box contains – a Lover Lamp bath bomb, A French Kiss bubble bar, Rose Jam bubbleroon, Tisty Tosty bath bomb, Sex Bomb bath bomb and a Unicorn Horn bubble bar.
9. Petits Rituels Sensual Healing Scented Candle – £35 (BUY HERE)
One of our favourite scented candles, the seductive Sensual Healing fragrance is filled with the intoxicating scents of Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Rose and Lavender. The perfect addition to a romantic evening at home.
An amorously aromatic blend of pure essential oils in mineral-rich Himalayan pink salts. Bath for two please!
11. Lancôme Gloss in Love in Scarlett Starlett – £20 (BUY HERE)
The key to the ultimate kissable glossy red lip.
Swatches of rose, coral and peach packed into a pretty heart which provides the lucky wearer with the perfect romantic flush. You know the look we mean *blushing*.
13. Yves Saint Laurent Kiss & Love Collector’s Edition Palette – £47.20 (BUY HERE)
We’ve been coveting this palette for quite some time. The name and packaging scream Valentine and we really hope Mister TLBG is FINALLY going to take the hint! What’s inside?…
Eyes: High pearl gold, dark brown, silvery shimmer and champagne gold shadows create a glamorous smoky eye.
Lips: Saturate the lips with one of the two Rouge Volupte shades, Playful Light Pink or wicked Pure Red. The signature formulation quenches the lips, leaving a shot of colour and an irrepressible shiny finish.
Cheeks: Finally, the cheeks feel the first flush of love as a delicate fresh coral delivers a naughty glow.
14. Bobbi Brown Travel Brush Set – £125 (BUY HERE)
A pretty spectacular gift for any make-up lover. If you really want to splash the cash to show your love, this is how to do it (if diamonds are out of the question of course). The sleek, silver case houses a travel size Blush Brush, Foundation Brush, Concealer Blending Brush, Eye Shadow Brush, Eye Sweep Brush, and Ultra-Fine Eye Liner Brush.
Love and kisses. Xx
