Valentines Gifts for Her

4 Feb

Women as opposed to men are usually much more bothered about which gifts they receive on Valentine’s Day.

Is the gift thoughtful? He loves me.
Is the gift expensive? He thinks that I am worth it.

Absolutely no pressure at all boys!

I personally think that you cannot beat a handmade valentine’s gift. (I look back at gifts of past and the pricey rug that I received went down less well than the almost free to give origami flowers) Though I do confess I prefer these to be accompanied by a thoughtful gift. I’m not demanding or precious but I put a lot of effort into thoughtful gifting so I do appreciate this to be returned. I also believe that if a man can buy me a gift I will love but get a discount or get it at the lowest possible price – it then frees up his money to spoil me with a romantic weekend of nice food and wine. I have collated some ‘easy wins’ for men to give to their lovely women, to help those along who may need a little nudge!

Bloom Gin
Because…pretty bottle. That’s it, that is all you need to know. Cover a bottle with embellishments and pop a bow on it and yes women will love it.

Blooming Lovely!

BLOOM London Dry Gin: RRP £22.00 for 70cl. ABV 40% at Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Booths and other quality retailers.

Verdict: A very pretty 9 / 10

Jockey Red Chemise
This nightie is not only gorgeous, and sexy – it is so comfortable and luxurious. Available For £27 at Jockey
Jockey Chemise

Verdict: 10 / 10

His and Hers Wooden Tree Carving Coasters
These beautiful little coasters will be sure to melt her heart. All of the romance, none of the inconvenience. A winner all round! Available from Getting Personal for £9.99

Almost like I carved them myself!

Verdict: Ok, it’s a piece of wood, but actually considering I don’t own a saw, or have a tree to chop down £9.99 seems like a bargain! 9 / 10

Personalised Mix Tape MP3 Player
This is the cutest idea ever, a little MP3 Player which in fact looks like a little mix tape. You can charge with a mini USB. The sticker on the front is a little cheap (mine’s half falling off!) so alas it will not give your iPod a run for it’s money, but still very cute. Available from Getting Personal for £14.99

Rachel's Mix Tape

Verdict: A cute 7 / 10

Personalised Rose Champagne
There is nothing more cliché thank pink champagne on Valentines day, but hey ho – a little cliché can actually be quite nice. Available from Getting Personal for £34.99

Yum!

Yum!

Verdict: A bit pricey for pink champagne, but if you have the money well worth it for a Valentines meal indoors 8 /10

CIROC Vodka
It may well be indicative of the secret alcoholic within me, but I really don’t think that you can go wrong by gifting your partner their favourite booze. Make it more romantic by printing a cocktail list and including mixers and any fruit needed all in one nice gift bag. For Vodka lovers try CIROC, it comes in a gorgeous bottle, is high quality (made from fine French grapes) and is priced at under £30 from most major supermarkets.

Verdict: A delicious 8 / 10

Bio Sculpture Nail Varnish in Nude
If you are unsure of what colour to choose when it comes to make up for a girlfriend – go neutral. Bio Sculpture Nail Varnish in Nude is available from http://www.biogel.co.uk for £6.45 and would make a great mini-gift.

Verdict: 7 / 10

Set the Mood
This isn’t a gift as such, but if you are planning a romantic night in how about LED Hut’s pink outdoor/indoor LED fairy Lights. You can wrap them into any shape around your house for that essential mood lighting, and then use them in the summer for garden parties. Available at LED Hut for £31.20

Wrap around your home furnishings
