Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Cupid is out in full force this week as Valentine's Day approaches, and whether you're looking for some tasty treats or pampering products our gift guide should help to put a smile on your loved one's face. 

Valentine Gift Guide

If you're planning on having a night in with your partner this Sunday then a little r&r will certainly go a long way. Created to reduce lines and wrinkles these masks leave skin feeling soft and refreshed while also moisturising a delicate area. With a formulation of active ingredients - including Olea Europaea Husk Oil, an extract from the olive fruit rich in antioxidants, anti-pollutants, and lactic acid to provide excellent results, it's not surprised they are so well loved by celebrities too.

Looking for a chocolate fix without the calories? This pretty set from Bomb Cosmetics contains creamers, meltz, mallows and gems for the bath which release beautiful cocoa scents! The lavender and Gernaium essential oils will help you to unwind while deeply moisturising you from tip to toe. They are even coated in real chocolate, coffee and vanilla pods!

Lips, lids and cheeks will glow beautifully when this rich balm is applied. The main ingredient, fermented pawpaw, has soothing and healing properties whereas the tint provides a subtle hint of colour. It's fragrance free and bound to become a handbag necessity in no time. Ideal for smooth and kissable lips this Valentine's too.

If you're looking for a gift that oozes elegance without breaking the bank, you can present your lover with champagne and diamonds this February - the name of this stunning set. There are 16 chocolates within the bold gold and hot pink packaging with smooth caramel, raspberry truffle jam, creamy praline and champagne ganache flavours to devour. A real treat.

Rock & Ruddle Brush - £20-£30

Made from quality boar bristles which are both strong and resilient, this haircare range makes your tresses shiny while detangling and distributing sebum (natural oil) during brushing. There are lots of designs and colours to choice from including hot pink, love hearts or zebra print for the animal in you! You can even personalise them with a name for a special added touch.

Milk Tray - from £1

For over a decade, Cadbury chocolates have been the perfect gift for anyone with a sweet tooth and they make a delicious gift for Valentine's Day too. The iconic box is filled with classics but there is also the new Apple Crunch and Salted Caramel Charm to tempt you. The deep purple boxes come in miniature size right up to 530g so you shop to your budget.

Love Hearts - £20.99 and £14.99

Say I love you with retro sweets from Swizzels! The silver plated heart shaped trinket can be opened to reveal a message of your choice on a pack of traditional Love Heart sweets - the perfect proposal? Either way it's a stunning keepsake that can be used to store jewellery, money or maybe hair accessories inside afterwards.

The wicker hamper is bursting with love themed goodies so it would be a great gift to share during a romantic night in. You can add a personalised message which is attached by pretty red ribbon to show just how much you care this February. The basket contains a mixture of Giant Love Hearts rolls, foil-wrapped mini Love Hearts rolls, Love Hearts Dips, Love Hearts Squashies, a limited edition Love Hearts tin with mini Love Hearts inside and Love Hearts Lipsticks.

Enriched with Arnica extract, this dual-purpose balm will help your partner to unwind while enjoying a soak in the tub. It can alternatively be used for a romantic massage to sooth tired muscles and remove tension while the scent of grapefruit essential oils and lavender help you to relax. If you're looking for an evening in together this is a great product to have to hand.

Bradford Bakers Personalised Rose Cupcakes - £21.90

Combine beautiful roses and chocolate in one with a wonderfully presented cupcake delivery. The 8 floral iced cakes surround a personalised version in the centre and they are presented in a satin keepsake box complete with ribbon. They are packaged very securely to prevent damage in transit - you can be assured they will all arrive looking equally as fantastic!
