Valentine's Day. I'm going to be a bit of a joy kill and say I'm not particularly a fan. It feels a bit unnecessary but there's no escaping it, so like with this kind of thing, if I don't like it then I'll put it off and off which is why I'm writing this last minute gift guide for all of you out there. It's slightly generic, but that's Valentine's Day for you. I'm talking the kind of gifts you can ask for, or for you men out there, this is something I'm sure your ladies would love.
First up, I'm talking a few perfumes and fragrance is always a safe bet when buying for women. I don't know anyone that wouldn't be happy with one. I mean, even my mum who isn't the biggest beauty fan likes them so I feel like that says something. If you've been reading my blog for a while now you'll probably know that Marc Jacobs Daisy is my favourite and has been for years. I've used it for as long as I can remember and I can't see it leaving my collection any time soon (I will always repurchase this) so I just had to mention it. If you've already got Daisy though, I'd completely recommend Paco Rabanne Lady Million* and Victor and Rolf Flowerbomb. Beautiful beautiful fragrances and right up the Daisy street. Other fragrance recommendations include 007 For Women* and Hugo Woman*, both a little more on the budget side but still really nice.
Chocolate, I really don't need to say much more as it will ALWAYS go down well. Lindt* have some amazing offerings this year and I can tell you that they taste equally as good. The packaging is a dream and there's something about Lindt that feels as though it's a special occasion only kind of chocolate if you know what I mean. Plus, the Lindor Strawberries and Cream Truffles pictured are an absolute DREAM. Totes want to eat some more right now but I'm 'attempting' to be uber healthy. Let's see how long that lasts with these babies stashed in my drawer...
Other sites I'd recommend looking for gifts are Not On The Highstreet and StreetHub. But maybe that's not really for us last minute shoppers. Pop to the shop and pick up a bunch of flowers, some lindt choccies and a fragrance and trust me, you can't go wrong.
