Flowers, £75 by Phillipa Craddock http://fave.co/1bndoon

It’s that time of year again and whether you love it or you hate it there’s nothing you can do to stop it rolling around again, it’s Valentines Day. Whilst I can do nothing to slow it’s arrival, I can make life much easier when it comes to what to buy that special someone. Whether you’re single or coupled up here’s my guide to the best presents around, for her, for him, or for yourself. I’ve added links to everything so all you have to do is click and order, how easy is that? xx

For her:

Who doesn’t love a good candle? Especially this limited edition Rosa Mundi one from Diptyque, £42:

Haven’t been together that long? How about taking your other half wine tasting? It’s fun, you’ll learn something and that wine will get rid of any nerves that may still be hanging around.

Happy Valentines Day!

What are you hoping someone will treat you to on Valentines Day? Is there anything you think I missed?
