I always struggle when it comes to Valentines Day gifts for my other half so I can imagine how men must feel because I think they always struggle when it comes to buying gifts.
Saying that I have scoured the internet (my previous years gift guide) for some gifts that I think will be perfect for men and women.
Firstly I think getting the card right is a major thing because I think women especially love a good card, I absolutely love the cards from love Layla
They are really funny and just a bit different here are a few of my favourite cards I found,
We are giving away 1 card to 5 lucky people so if you would like to win one of these hilarious cards then all you have to do is follow me on Instagram The Mummy Diaries & also Love Layla and also comment on this post with your Instagram username to let me know that you have followed us both. The winners will be chosen on the 4th February and cards will be sent out the following week so will arrive in time for your valentine.
So lets get on to the good part, the gifts,
You cant go wrong with perfume because its something that will always be used, for everyday use or special occasions – I think every woman has a going out perfume! I have chosen two different perfumes with 2 different price ranges because not everyone has an expensive budget for valentines gifts.
I love this fragrance from Armani and its always been one of my favourites, this is now on sale at Boots for £30.50 which is a really good price.
Then for the more expensive perfume is the Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Acqua, not only is the bottle colour amazing but its unisex which is a gift you can both use. I often wear aftershave as I think they can be unisex and its nice to not always wear a feminine scent. This is £140 from boots but so worth the price,
Not everyone likes to receive underwear as a gift but it is your typical valentines gift and its nice to have some matching underwear for when your going out, for your man or just to feel good while wearing it.
I just adore this matching set from Boux Avenue its £30 for the set and the colour and style are perfect for Valentines.
If you have a bigger budget then this set from agent provocateur is perfect, at £195 it is pricey but I think I’m actually a little bit in love with this.
Every woman loves a candle and Keith always goes mad at me because they are everywhere and there are ones that I wont light because I don’t want to ruin them. The Amber candle from Diptyque is my favourite, its part of the woody family and is the perfect evening, relaxing scent. You can get this candle from Space NK fr £45 and its the bigger candle – bonus!
Like perfume aftershave is another gift you cant go wrong with and Bvlgari Aqua is one of my favourites which I have bought for Keith and steal it every now and then. It is a masculine scent but very wearable as I said above for a woman. You can get this from The perfume shop for £48 – £66 depending on the size.
This is a perfect gift as they can get to chose from 196 choices and there’s everything in there from Car racing, Surfing, Sky Diving to champagne afternoon for two – he might even take you (present for him, present for you). At £59 from Virgin Experience days this is a bargain.
I love the idea of this it keeps the bed side table tidy and looks stylish to. Its an unusual gift that you wouldn’t see everywhere. This is half price at Not on the high street for only £17.50 and you can personalise it to what ever you want.
I hope this has given you some inspiration and I would love to hear your suggestions for gifts.
