Valentines day always comes around quickly and I’m so useless with organising something in advance. I’m left with rubbish restaurant choices, no idea what gift to buy and feeling pretty shitty about the whole thing!
So, whether you’re treating yourself, a friend, a boyfriend or girlfriend, here are some lovely last minute presents I’ve found.
- XAVIER HOME CANDLES
Who doesn’t like candles? Seriously, this is probably THE easiest present and you can’t go wrong buying from Xavier Home. I recommend their Valentines Day Collection as each candle says “To My Valentine” on the front. They come in the three best selling fragrances: Saint, Raspberry & Black Pepper and Pink Champagne and Pomelo. Each scent smells incredible, they’re suitable for men and women and starting at just £19 for 300ml, it’s a no brainer!
If there are any readers who live in South East London, Xavier Home currently have a pop up in The Glades Bromley between Feb 1st and March 11th.
- Boux Avenue Odette Undies
Thong – £15, Bra – £36
The colour of this set is so beautiful and I love the lace detailing!
- MAISON DE FLEURS
Spring Couture Collection – The Charming £100
If you’re looking for a beautiful arrangement of flowers this is the place to go. They are expensive but the quality of the flowers is amazing and would make anyone feel special on Valentines Day. A little tip – whatever you do, just don’t buy flowers from the supermarket!
- HOTEL CHOCOLAT
The Everything Sleekster Chocolate Gift Box – £22
I don’t know anyone who would say no to a box of chocolates. Even if they try to use the ‘I’m on a diet’ excuse, valentines day is for indulging and as soon as they smell the velvety smooth choccies they won’t be able to resist!
- THE BIRMINGHAM GIN
GIN 700ml £44.99
Something a bit more masculine for the gin lover.
I hope this helps,
