Valentine's Day is coming up this Sunday, so here are some luxury and budget friendly gift ideas to treat the special woman in your life.
Perfume / Fragrance Gift Ideas
Perfume is always a popular choice for the big V-Day, but if you're not sure what to buy, here are three suggestions that you can easily pick up on the highstreet, at your nearest department store or online.
Luxury: Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Parfum*
(75ml, £75, available from Boots)
If you're splashing out, it's hard to go wrong with a seriously luxury designer scent from one of the biggest fashion houses around. D&G's 'The One' is a contemporary beauty with a classic gold topped bottle shape and a strong, warm, oriental inspired floral fragrance.
Mid-range: Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum*
(40ml, £27.96, link, available from Hairtrade.com)
Jimmy Choo's self-named first perfume was an instant success when it was first launched and remains a popular bestseller in 2016. This is a fun, sexy, sensuous scent for the modern woman and I love the art deco, vintage inspired bottle.
Budget: Ted Baker Sweet Treat Purse Spray in Polly Eau de Toilette*
(10ml, £15, available from Boots)
Any of Ted Baker's Sweet Treat Purse Sprays would make lovely gifts as they are all quite different. Polly is an unashamedly sweet floral scent with top notes of Mandarin, Peach and Red Berries. It's very girly but has a grown-up quality to it as well and the mini bottle will be perfect for her handbag or work desk.
Accessories & Nails
Kitsch Hair Ties*
(5 hairties, £6.20, available from mykitsch.com)
Kitsch sell a huge range of handmade, high-quality accessories and jewellery and their hair ties are especially cute. The ones pictured are called 'Crazy In Love' and I think they are just absolutely adorable for Valentine's Day.
Lottie London Tress Ties*
(6 hairties, £4.99, available from Superdrug)
If you want to pick up some colourful hair ties from the highstreet, head for Superdrug and buy these from Lottie London. These are snag and crease free, so they're ideal for ponytails and up dos.
Lottie London Nail Lacquer Trio*
(3 x 12ml nail lacquers, £11.99, available from Superdrug)
For a nail related gift, these sets of three nail lacquers from Lottie London come in several different colourways, and unlike a lot of other nail sets, these are all full-size bottles so you get more bang for your buck.
Leafy & Lovely Cosmetic Bag*
(£4, available from Superdrug)
A new makeup bag always puts a smile on my face and this one from Leafy & Lovely is a good travel size with a really pretty Spring time print on it. A practical, stylish and affordable gift for this Valentine's Day.
Bomb Cosmetics Valentine's Romance Collection*
(from £2.09 each, available from bombcosmetics.co.uk)
Bath treats need not be expensive, as Bomb Cosmetics' Romance Collection clearly demonstrates. Their products are all handmade here in England, and they have some super cute designs, with some bath products shaped like cupcakes which look good enough to eat!
