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
Who doesn’t love a good candle? Especially this limited edition Rosa Mundi one from Diptyque, £42:
If you want something to brighten her mornings, this big mug from Emma Bridgewater, £16.95 should do the trick:
These silver earrings are small enough that she can wear everyday so she’ll always be thinking of you, £12:
Or if you’re inclined to splash out a bit, how about this gorgeous pink wallet from Sophie Hulme, £240:
Give her something she can always wear to know she’s loved. Love bracelet £85 by Astley Clarke:
Or some rose massage oil from Aromatherapy Associates, £40 if she’s in need of a bit of relaxation:
Now that she’s nice and relaxed, maybe her pj’s need a bit of an update? You can’t go wrong with this little number from Elle Mcphearson, £60:
If she’s always scribbling something down, what better place to do it than this Smythson notebook, £35. It’ll make her smile every time:

Or if soppy’s not really her thang, I don’t know many girls who wouldn’t love this bag, a total classic. Lancaster bag £295 by Russell and Bromley:
All he’s really going to want is you, especially when you’re all wrapped up in this underwear from Mimi Holliday, from £18.50 :
But if you want to get him a little something he’ll actually be able to tell his mother about, this tie from YSL, £95 is a good option:
Or some cheeky chocolates from Rococo, £14.95:
This stylish and practical holdall, £149 from Barbour will last him for years (and may give him the inclination to book a weekend away, win win):
And because you can never go wrong with Penhaglion’s, how about miniatures of their best selling fragrances. Gentlemen’s collection, £30
If he’s partial to a tipple then this is a must, £9.99:
And if his knicker drawer is looking a little lacklustre then these Ralph Lauren’s, £25 are sure to brighten it up!
February’s a pretty bleak month as it is so why not brighten things up by treating yourself to this beautiful scarf, £165 from Liberty?:
And if everyone else is getting chocolates then so should you, these are some of my faves. Salt caramels, £13.95 from Artisan du Chocolat:
And of course there’s always the classically cool Larsson and Jennings watch, £205:
Or maybe you fancy a bit of pampering, get baby smooth skin with this body polish, £32 from REN:

Not forgetting of course, the timeless red lipstick, £25 from YSL. I love the old school glamour of this packaging:
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!
