As lovely as getting ‘things’ is, I appreciate being made to feel special even more, so as well as a gift list this year, I’ve added in some little ‘spoil them’ suggestions to make your loved one feel even more cherished.
As the 14th is a Tuesday this year, I’m not sure many of us will have time for a lie in, but come the weekend, we’ll have little Sophie in bed with us for cuddles and having special tea and biscuits in bed will be a little gesture of love. Get your favourite tray out, add a rose and your good to go.
Is there anything more lovely than a hot bath and time to relax and unwind? II didn’t think so. Add some of their favourite bath oil to the tub, light some candles and pour them a glass of bubbles and you’re favourite person will know how much you care. Leave out some extra pampering goodies for them to enjoy some proper me-time and get prepared for a romantic evening in, or out.
Perfumes are a classic love token, and treating someone to a beautiful bottle of fragrance that looks as good its smells is an ideal gift. I’m in love with the bottles of Paco Rabanne Olympea and Cartier Baiser Fou with their stunning stoppers. ALAÏA Paris Eau de Parfum Blanche is simple and elegant, like the fragrance inside.
A little personal, thoughtful gift is even better than spending lots of money. I’m terrible at losing my keys (and everything else I need!) so a big key ring to help me find them is a gift we can giggle over.
Staying in or going out, end the night with a special glass of bubbles and sweet treats.
Happy Valentines x
