Valentines gift guide 2021

Wait what its February already. That means only one thing. Valentine's day. Love it hate it it is nearly here. I love it, it's a fun day where you celebrate your love.  Whether that be for your other half or your bestie it's all just about love. Of course, you dont have to give a gift to tell someone you love them but if you do want to I have compiled my favriote gifts for this valentines. 

Some of these items have been sent to me for inclusion and some I have bought for this guide. So without further ado let's get into it. 

Cosmetics 

Buying someone their favriote fragrance is always a winner in my book. 
This is Armani In Love With You From Perfume Direct

What the brand says. 
Tell her you love her this Valentine’s day with Armani In Love With You. Inspired by passion and the feeling of being in love, this fragrance is a composition of opposites with both gentle and bold notes throughout. Tangy sour cherry, sparkling raspberry and blackcurrant open the scent to instantly surprise, while the heart is formed of delicate, feminine notes of rose and jasmine contrasted with bitter wormwood.

How about the gift of a luxury bath oil with an amazing twist. Its anti-ageing.  
This is slow ageing essential bath essence and it is heaven in a bath oil. 
The benefits of the bath essence 
Slow down and sink into the bath, or slip into a shower, with this mood-restoring botanical essence. Beautifully fragrant essential oils of rose, juniper and cypress enhance mental and physical energy while renewing and protecting skin cells. Irritations are calmed, stressors are soothed and softness is regained.
