Valentine's Gift Guide 2.0

30 January 2018



Valentine's is swiftly approaching so I thought I would share my second gift guide to help you guys and girls out there; whether you are looking to buy a present for a friend, family member or partner, I've include a complete range of products that have you covered. From the beauty addict to the hopeless romantic, I've decided to share some of my favourite brands alongside some newly discovered ones that I'm sure you will love to!

My first 'Valentine's Gift Guide' is here if you want to check that out for more inspiration. I'm also hosting a giveaway in that post that ends in two days if you want to try and win some beauty goodies!






THE JEWELLERY LOVER

Luv & Bart are a stunning jewellery company that sell your beautiful statement pieces alongside your dainty everyday wear. Although I usually stick to silver jewellery, I decided to branch out and choose three golden pieces from their vast variety of products. I chose the Cecile necklace - a large golden coin on a thin golden chain. The simplicity of the design allows this piece to be paired with almost every outfit, whilst still making a statement. I think this is going to look stunning with a low v dress or bodysuit! Also, I opted for the Charlene bracelet because I'm obsessed with the tassel trend that is still floating about the fashion industry. The innovative design completely drew me towards this product; it is going to look so cute paired with my summer outfits! Finally,  my love for statement earrings at the minute is explicit on my Youtube channel. I cannot stop buying large, crazy earrings as I think they are so cool and completely make an outfit. From Luv & Bart, I loved the look of these double chained star earrings. You can definitely dress these up or down, making them look classy on a evening out paired with a little black dress or alternatively, you could wear these with a festival inspired look (lots of glitter and tonnes of jewellery).

THE HOPELESS ROMANTIC

If you're into the classic Valentine's gifts like myself, a beautiful bunch of flowers are a perfect way to keep a smile on my face. I love roses so much and have a gorgeous bouquet in my university room honestly brightens my day! It's crazy how much a bunch of flowers can increase my mood?! Anyway, Prestige Flowers kindly sent over one of their stunning luxury rose bouquets; partnered with an adorable little teddy bear and a box of chocolates. If you want to make your girls day, chocolates, flowers and a teddy bear is the perfect option. 12 red roses wonderfully gift wrapped in red decor arrive at your door in a safely packaged cardboard box. I was so surprised with the aesthetics of the brand and flowers - would definitely recommend Prestige Flowers not only for Valentine's, but for mother's day and birthdays too!

THE ALTERNATIVE ONE

Something I always love to do for Valentine's is think of an alternative yet thoughtful gift for my boyfriend. I was searching for quirky, innovative Valentine's gifts that were universal and managed to find this incredible star print from Under Lucky Stars. This brand are super original and showcase a variety of personalised star maps that you can customise to fit any date, time and location, alongside chosing your desired colours and style. I love getting creative when it comes to gifts - personalisation is the perfect touch to make a present sentimental and well thought-out. Whether you want to visualise the starry night you had your first date, the time he proposed or your first born child, this gift will be sure to put a smile on anyone's face. I'm so excited to give my boyfriend this wonderful print of the day he asked me to be his girlfriend...it definitely isn't as romantic as it sounds. We were 14 years old, surrounded by a bunch of chaotic year 7's and on a school field. Haha, it's definitely a day that was special though as we are still together 5 years later!

THE PRACTICAL ONE

If your partner is into interior, homeware, organisation and presentation then this one is definitely for you. I haven't got the most wonderful spaces to work with, as I'm currently hibernating in university halls. However, if you want to purchase something practical for your loved one then have a look at some homeware sites. My absolute favourites are Home Sense, Coconut Lane, B&M (if you're on a budget) and Wilko. There are a huge range of shops that sell classic furniture to quirky decor to bring some life to your room.

Here are some of my favourite homeware ranges you NEED to check out:

THE BEAUTY ADDICT

The beauty lover is always a hard one to buy for, especially if you're a male that has no idea about makeup and the right brands to trust. One of my favourite affordable brands is MAKEUP REVOLUTION; they are an ever-growing company sold in Superdrug that house the most incredible all round palettes to beauty tools. Some of my favourite products from the Makeup Revolution range have to be the Soph X Revolution collection - I'm obsessed with both the eyeshadow and highlight palette. I honestly use the highlighting palette every single day without fail. If you are all about pigmentation and longevity, this palette is for you (treat yourself on Valentine's day...why not?!) The shades in the eyeshadow palette are super versatile, allowing you to experiment with a number of creative looks for under £10!
