ULTIMATE VALENTINE'S GIFT GUIDE 2017


With less than a week to go now until Valentine's Day, I have put together a Gift Guide for your special loved one! But if like me you are single, then why not go ahead and treat yourself regardless!? 

I have chosen a few of my favourite gifts ranging from fragrances, to food and drink, finishing off with some little treats! I hope you enjoy this Gift Guide, and I hope these inspire you with some ideas!

FRAGRANCE:

FOR HER -

FOR HIM - 

Marc Jacobs - Daisy; Eau So Fresh/Kiss

I have lost count with the amount of ladies in my life who are in love with this fragrance! A sweet, yet fruity scent and one that will instantly make you a winner in any girls eyes! 

{ Purchase }

Viktor & Rolf - Flowerbomb

Another classic ladies fragrance; Flowerbomb! Similar to the Mens Spicebomb version in the sense that they are both very strong when it comes to sillage.

{ Purchase }

Narcisco Rodriguez - For Her; Fleur Musc

I find that the bottle of this looks like an enlarged, elegant version of nail varnish.. Just me? Anyway! A floral yet musky scent with vibrant notes.

{ Purchase }

Chloé - A Love Story

A clean fragrance that is equally as floral as it is citrusy! Perfect for the upcoming Spring season! 

{ Purchase }

Davidoff - Horizon Extreme

A woody, spicy fragrance that has incredible longevity and can give you many compliments!

Review || Purchase }

Viktor & Rolf - Spicebomb

My first ever fragrance, and one I will always go back to due to it's stunning scent, and the powerful sillage it leaves behind.  

{ Review || Purchase }

Issey Miyake - L'eau D'Issey Pour Homme Noir Ambre

An oriental scent that feels warm and sweet. Perfect for a nighttime, and the bottle is just as stunning as the fragrance!

Tom Ford - Extreme

A strong, solid masculine scent. One I believe should be in Tom Ford's Private Blend Collection, it's that good. A woody, earthy fragrance and one that lasts for hours upon your skin!

{ Purchase }

FOOD AND DRINK:

Hotel Chocolat - The Valentines Pick Me Up

Chocolates from Hotel Chocolat are always a guaranteed way to make somebody feel good! Within this little goody box you get;

  1. Shortbread covered in 50% Milk Chocolate
  2. 6 white hearts flavoured with Passion Fruit 
  3. A slab of caramel-milk chocolate covered in puddles and florentines
  4. 2 hearts, one containing a hint of chilli (my favourite!) and the other, their signature praline

{ Purchase

Kraken Black Spiced Rum

I had been sent a little sample of Kraken Rum last year from 31Dover.com, and ever since that sample, I have been hooked. Honestly, it is all I ever drink now! It is sublime. I drink this with Coke as I have found it to mix perfectly, although I am looking for new mixers and cocktail suggestions to use Kraken Rum with? Any help?

GIFTS:

TK Maxx - Stags Head

A gift bought for me a couple of years ago, that I have found instantly grabs peoples attention wherever this is placed within my house. (It is also heavily featured in some of my YouTube videos that you may have seen!) Stunning, slick and bold, a must have for any man after something eye catching for their room!

Now, as with TK Maxx stores only stocking certain items, I have included the link for their website so you're able to find similar options to the stag and I have also found an alternative to the one photographed.

Jo Malone - Mens Cologne Collection Gift Set #JustBecause

As a huge fan of all things Jo Malone, I was flattered when I had received their Mens Cologne Collection containing 5 of their miniature fragrances; 

  1. Dark Amber & Ginger Lily
  2. Grapefruit
  3. Amber & Lavender
  4. Wood Sage & Sea Salt
  5. Incense & Cedrat

As part of their #JustBecause campaign, in each of their boutiques, they are currently personalising each gift with a special message for your loved one! Your chosen gift will be wrapped with a 'Just Because' ribbon, and will feature your personal message on a gift card. Why? Well, just because!
