Valentine Gifts

So its that time of year again when "couples" are meant to show their love for one another with gifts ever big or small. But you don't need a partner to buy valentine gifts for, you can buy them for yourself, friends and maybe family members, anyone you love. 

This gift guide will give you some ideas of what valentine gifts are available on the high street this year and there is lots to choose from. 


I Love Strawberries and Milkshake Bath Creme 500 ml 

Retails for £2.05 from Superdrugs, Morrison's and Co-op 

 This product comes from the I Love cosmetic range and comes in loads of different scents from Vanilla and Ice Cream to Blueberry and Smoothie, so more for me to try out which is always good. These smell brilliant, they are not over powering and they can be used as bubble bath or as shower gel which is always a bonus if you are watching the purse strings. 

Nail Polishes

Barry M.  Raspberry 

Retails for £2.99 from Boots and Superdrugs 

Nail polishes make nice gifts as a polish can change a persons hands straight away.
Most companies will bring out ever a nail polish or a range of nail polishes in colours that are normally associated valentine (Red and Pink). 
One such company is MUA that is available in Superdrugs who have just brought out they love heart range which includes nail polishes and lip balms. I try to purchase some of this range in my local Superdrugs with no joy. 
But I did see this lovely colour from the Barry M range. Barry M nail paints as there are called is a good choice of gift as they come in arrange of different colours and good value for money as most of their nail paints cost £2.99. These are easy to apply and two coats will give you the look you want. 
The only down side to the nail paints I would say is to not apply them when you are in a rush and always use a top coat to stop them chipping so quickly. 


Lacoste - Touch of Pink 

Retails from around £25.00 in most perfume stores.

Perfume is always a nice gift to give or receive as it shows that the person has been really thought about as a scent can tell many stories. 
A scent that I think is good for valentine is Lacoste Touch of Pink I received this as a gift myself and I just fell in love with it. Its smells very girly and reminds me of days on the beach as its a very youthful scent. 


Moulin Rouge

Retails from £2.99 at many retail stores

A DVD is always a good choice of gift has it is something the receipted will have for a long time. Around valentine most of the romantic genre of films makes a come back into stores and one that I feel as shown the test of time is Baz Luhrmann film Moulin Rouge which stars Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor. The reason I feel this is a perfect valentine film is because it shows how hard people will work for love and even if you work hard for it you may not always get the result you want. 

Old Fashion Ideas 

Flowers and Chocolates

Retails from £1.00 from most stores

If you are ever stuck for ideas or want to do it the old fashion way you can never go wrong with a box of chocolates and a bunch of flowers. The flowers can be roses but why not try and find out what is the persons favourite flower and get a bunch of them it will show them you have though about them loads. 

Well whatever you buy or do this valentine I hope each and every one of you has a brilliant time. 

See You Soon
