Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Some Self Love

February 10, 2019 No Comments

It’s coming up to that time of year again that some people love and some people hate. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day as I’m of the opinion that you should show someone you love them every single day and not just once a year. I also don’t think that Valentine’s Day should be only for a partner but for any special person in your life that you love!

There is no one more special than yourself!

So I thought why not give yourself a treat this Valentine’s Day. We all need some self-love and self-care and who doesn’t love an excuse to treat themselves, eh?!  Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t treat your loved one to any of these gifts too.

Personalised Valentines Salted Caramel Truffle Sweet Tree – £29.99

Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Valentine's Day

How about this gorgeous Personalised Valentines Salted Caramel Truffle Sweet Tree from Prezzybox?

It is available in two sizes – this is the regular size (25cm) and costs £29.99. The large size (35cm) is £46.99.

I think it’s a fun and different way to receive chocolates. It feels a bit more luxurious and extravagant to have a tree of chocolates rather than just a box.

You can also personalise the vase AND everything except the vase & stem is edible. The centre of the tree is made from Belgian toffee crisp and of course, the chocolates on the tree are salted caramels.

They also despatch within 24hrs too.


One Year Roses Make Up Box – 4 Piece – £49.99

Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Valentine's Day

Now, this I would class as a little bit of luxury and on the pricier side of things at £49.99. However, this beautiful acrylic Make Up Box from Prezzybox comes with one year Roses. Yes, REAL roses that last up to a year if cared for properly.

You can use this to store smaller items of makeup, hair accessories, jewellery – just about anything really. It’s ideal for those small items that you always seem to lose. They’d also look good as a blog prop too! I really love acrylic storage boxes and the roses are truly beautiful; it would look amazing on any dressing table!

The roses come in a choice of colours:-

  • Rouge Red
  • Vintage Pink
  • Classic Champagne – sadly these are currently out of stock

Drawer size:

100mm x 100mm x 50mm

Whole Box Size:

W107mm / D107mm / H113mm

How To Care For Your Roses:

  • Do not water
  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • Do not expose to high levels of moisture or humidity
  • Keep roses around room temperature
  • Clean delicately if dust gathers over time
  • Avoid Crushing, Pressing or Folding the Roses
  • Roses are happiest in the original box – Do not remove


Prosecco Spumante Gift – from £28.99

Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Valentine's Day

Fancy treating yourself – or your loved one – to a gorgeous packaged bottle of Prosecco from Sparkling Direct?

‘A great tasting Prosecco Spumante from the Casa Defra family vineyards. The Spumante is the most popular style of Prosecco produced and is the full sparkling one. This Prosecco has a lovely crisp flavour to it and it is presented in one of our fantastic wooden gift boxes.’ – Sparkling Direct

As you can see it comes in this fun wooden gift box – which could be easily repurposed afterwards for some kind of storage box.

You can choose your delivery date and they have free next day wine delivery (Mon-Fri UK mainland)  If you want to, you can also include a personalised gift card as well. Perfect if you are sending it to someone other than yourself.


Hempz Blushing Grapefruit & Raspberry Creme in-shower hydrating herbal body moisturizer 250ml – £16.99

Valentine's Day

Now, how about some pampering goodies for your skin! This Blushing Grapefruit & Raspberry Creme in-shower hydrating herbal body moisturizer from Hempz smells amazing! It will leave your skin so soft, feeling smooth and just smelling heavenly. Containing Shea Butter, Cucumber Extract and Vitamins A, C and E, plus of course 100% Pure Natural Hemp Seed Oil, your skin will love you for using this.


Upcircle Face Scrub Citrus Blend – £12.99

Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Valentine's Day

Nothing like giving your face some TLC either and this Face Scrub from Upcircle  {Affiliate} is perfect.

Made with repurposed coffee grounds and a host of other good ingredients, this scrub will gently slough away dead and dry skin. Your face will be left feeling soft, smooth and refreshed after use.  Coffee is great for stimulating blood flow, it’s a fab antioxidant, a skin brightener and is a good anti-inflammatory.


Coffea Arabica Seed Powder, Sucrose, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Oil, Lippia Citriodora (Lemon Verbena) Leaf Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus (Eucalyptus) Leaf Oil, Citrus Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Cedrus Atlantica (Cedarwood) Bark Oil, Boswellia Serrata (Frankincense) Oil, Benzyl Alcohol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzoic Acid, Sorbic Acid, *Limonene, *Linalool. *Natural constituent of essential oils listed.

Available in a Citrus Blend and a Floral Blend. It is also natural, sustainable, vegan & cruelty-free!


KISS Natural Flourish Blooming Lash – £6.75

Valentine's Day

I’m a big fan of KISS products and these lashes are just beautiful. A perfect little treat for yourself. They have so many different styles of lashes that you are bound to find the perfect pair – and hey – who says you only have to buy one pair?

These particular lashes have  ‘Multi-Angle technology delivers flourishing layers of lashes on a single lash band.’ When you look at the lashes side on, you can see the different layers. They look a lot more natural and therefore, they blend effortlessly with your own lashes.

You could use these for everyday looks or just for going out. Whenever you choose to use them though, you can be sure that they will enhance any makeup look that you create.

Well, that just about wraps it up for my suggestions for giving yourself some self-love/self-care this Valentine’s Day! There are plenty more things that you could do for yourself. Like, get a manicure or pedicure, a spa day – even just a takeaway & movie in bed! It doesn’t have to be expensive but there is nothing stopping you from going to town either if you want to.

What do you think about Valentine’s Day? Do you love it or hate it? Do you splurge on your significant other if you have one? Or do you treat yourself if you are single? Let me know in the comments!

  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
  • {gifted} I don't really like wearing foundation so this 'Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base' by @touchinsol_ldn is perfect for me. It's not only a great base to use under your makeup but also makes your skin glow all on its own! 😍⠀ ⠀ I happily wear this without feeling the need to put foundation on, or even a BB or CC cream. ⠀ ⠀ Of course, it is a honey & collagen-based primer with a host of natural extracts & vitamins, so no wonder it makes the skin look, radiant and, for want of a better word, bouncy! 🍯 ⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite primer/base to wear alone or under makeup?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #touchinsol_ldn #mmcl_ldn #primer #skincare #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #discoverunder20k #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #kskincare #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #theblogtribe ⁣#화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⁣ #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #kbeauty #abskincare #abblogger #instablogger #kbeautyblogger #petitejoys #theeverygirl #touchinsol⠀
