Welcome to a brand new blog post! Valentines Day is slowly coming up soon. As its a massive marketing campaign to put a price on love and affection, I thought that today, I would write a gift guide telling you what you could buy for those who you love. If you're single like myself, then all of the below gifts can be bought for yourselves too.
Jelly Belly was founded in 1898, and began making jelly beans in 1976. Today, Jelly Belly products are sold all over the world. Jelly Belly jelly beans are certified kosher, vegetarian, and free from gelatine, gluten, fat and dairy. Jelly Belly products are the best thing for those who like sweets, but aren't a big fan of chocolate/can't have chocolate for reasons such as allergies or intolerances, like myself. I think that these Sparkling Wine Jelly Belly's are the best for a Valentines Day gift, due to them being full of light and refreshing flavours. The product also comes in a cute Champagne Bottle which I think is adorable!
Lindt are the epitome of Valentines Day Chocolates, in my opinion, due to them being a little bit extravagant and delicious to eat, but also aren't too expensive. They also do the cute Chocolate figures such as the Gold Bear/Bunny. I think that this would be a cute gift on its own, as you get delicious chocolate and a cute charm, to attach to whatever you want. If you're within driving distance of a Lindt store, then I urge you to pop in, as they offer a Pick & Mix service which would be great as a present. You fill it up with all yours or your partners favourite Lindt Lindor truffles, and then all you would need to do, is buy a ribbon and attach to the bag.
Charbonnet Et Walker
If you're feeling extravagant, and you are wanting something that's a little bit luxurious, then Charbonnet Et Walker is the place for you. Charbonnet Et Walker are known for their terrific truffles and a box of them with a ribbon, would make a perfect present for yourself or someone else. Flavours include Strawberries & Cream, Sea Salted Caramel, Whiskey, Pink Champagne and many more. All of their truffles are amaing, as I've tried them before and I can remember eating them like it was yesterday.
Old Fashioned Sweets
Do you miss the good old days where you could run down to the corner shop, and pick up a bag of sweets for not that much money? Well, why not treat yourself/loved ones to some amazing old fashioned sweets such as Liquorice, Mint Humbugs and Aniseed Balls.
I think that AVA-J are the best underwear brand around in the United Kingdom. Their underwear fits amazingly and looks great on anyone. They stock great underwear such as Boxers, Boxer Briefs, Jockstraps, Briefs and much more for yourself/the men in your life who need some great underwear. They even stock nightwear such as gorgeous dressing gowns! They even have a sale on at the moment, which I'm trying to avoid, due to still not finding my wonderful pair of AVA-J underwear when moving to Leeds, and because I'm trying to not spend loads at the moment. I love their jockstraps and briefs as they're gorgeous and super comfy.
Bravissimo is an amazing lingerie brand for those who want to feel sexy and confident no matter what. Bravissimo stock their amazing products, in a vary od different sizes and colours. If you are a big boobed woman or know someone who is, eg, a partner or someone then this brand is for them.
Debenhams is known for its amazing array of fragrances, from ones such as Jimmy Choo to Viktor and Rolf to Tom Ford. There is a luxury fragrance for everyone. If you want to treat yourself to a new scent or get someone special, something that they'ce been lusting over then Debenhams is the place for you.
The Perfume Shop
The Perfume Shop is known for having amazing perfumes, from brands such as, Calvin Klein, DKNY, Paco Rabanne, and celebrity fragrances such as David Beckham and Nicki Minaj. If you know someone who loves a certain celebrity then a fragrance from them might be a great gift. If you or yourself need to top up on a fragrance then this is the best place for you, due to their many offers.
Alcohol is a great go to present for anyone around Valentines Day, especially if they have a favourite liquor or brand. You can also always grab a bottle of something and add things, such as mixers and fruits to give them or yourslef a DIY Cocktail Kit. Check ASDA, Tesco, Morrisons. Sainsburys or your local Supermarket for whats on offer/what kinds of alcohol they stock.
Experiences and adventures have become such a great gift. Things ranging from car experiences to afternoon tea to spa treatments and much more. Red Letter Days do a range of couple experiences which are great for those wanting to get back in touch with their other half but, there is also things like mentioned above that are great for one person or a group of friends.
Have you got anything planned for Valentines Day such as presents/experiences? Let me known down below!
