Valentines Day is upon us and I have been thinking about what I want to write about in this gift guide when inspiration struck - I wanted to bring you a cheap and cheerful guide of presents to give to the girl you love. For me it's more important to spend money on spending time together, rather than gifts - this year for example we are going away for the weekend to spend quality time together and splash out on dining and exploring Shropshire, which to me is the perfect way to celebrate Valentines Day. So, if you're on the same wavelength and me, but still want to give the girl you love a little something on Valentines Day then read on!
Let's start with the classic: chocolates. I don't think I know anyone who wouldn't like a box of delicious chocolates to land on their lap - especially on such a sweet and sickly day! My pick is Lind Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles* - they are simply divine. Sweet, soft and truly indulgent these chocolates won't break the bank with a price tag starting at £1.35 for a 50g box. These are a present both of you can enjoy whilst watching your favourite films on Netflix! You can find Lindt Lindor Truffles in most popular supermarkets.
I have been a huge fan of I Love... skincare because it is such a cute brand and the products they make smell absolutely divine. The best thing? They're very affordable. I chose to indulge in the Strawberries and Cream range* this Valentines Day because it's a pretty cute and romantic theme, sweetly scented and comes in a huge variety of products. From shower gel to scrubs, lip balms and lip tints, and my favourite scented spray - you can gift your loved one from £1.49 at Superdrug.
When it comes to underwear, I'm currently loving New Look - they have a huge selection of styles and colours at a great price! I love this set which is very versatile and perfect for everyday wear, as well as special occasions, and the best thing is that you can mix and match items from their range. This set comes it at under £10 with the bralet costing £4.99 and pants £3.99 - amazing! At this price, it would be silly not to grab a couple more in different colours!
If you are wanting to spend some dolla this Valentines Day, then perfume is the way to go. A classic like Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel will sit on her dressing table for years as this perfume really does last a long time - the scent is strong and unique so one spritz is really truly enough! Fresh and strong, the scent sparks of vibrant orange, jasmine, rose and underlying accents of patchouli and vetiver - YUM!
