Valentines Day Gift Guide for Her

Valentines Day can mean different things for many people and you'll probably be celebrating it differently too, whether you're single or in a relationship. If you're in a relationship you may be dining out, going on a romantic walk or spending the day inside, watching netflix with a takeaway and a glass of wine in hand with your loved one. I will most probably be doing the latter, except with a glass of good ol' OJ instead. If you're single though, you could be doing multiple things. Perhaps you'll be enjoying a night out with the girls, dining out, staying in with the family or even going on a date. Whatever you're doing, I hope you have a fabulous day! 

 Now, there is just two days until the big day! I know how difficult it can be to buy a gift for your significant other, no matter what the occasion is, however Valentines Day is so much more difficult than a Birthday or Christmas I find. Christmas was just under two months ago so you're probably thinking, 'What can I get someone that has everything?'. Well, there's always something a girl wants, let's face it. In my case there is anyway. Something will always catch my eye, whether it's a stunning piece of jewellery, a brand new bag or the newest makeup launch. 

I have made it a little bit easier for you if you're struggling to buy a gift for your loved one, or your 'galentine'. I have put together a Valentines Day Gift Guide with a few of my favourite gifts that I'm sure any girl would really appreciate on the day.
Valentines Day Gift Guide for Her
Starting with Jewellery, these beautiful bracelets from Boho Betty would make for a snazzy gift. There is quite a range of different colours and styles to choose from but my personal favourites are the *Haine Metallic Taupe Leather Bracelet(£15) and the *Loge Grey Crystal Beaded Stretch Bracelet(£10). Each and every piece from Boho Betty is inspired by travel. For example, the Haine Metallic Taupe Leather Bracelet is named after the famous rivers that run through France. Isn't that lovely? For me, this particular bracelet is quite delicate and oozes elegance with the rose gold plated bar and strands of rose gold leather. It also has a hook clasp to fasten so it fits well and you will have no worries about it slipping or sliding off your wrist. It's unlike anything I have seen before. It is so beautiful and suitable to wear during the day or night. As for the Loge Great Crystal Beaded Stretch Bracelet, it is beautifully handmade with a variety of different coloured beads, grey crystals and a cute grey tassel which I think looks quite fun and 'hippie-esque'. 

The great thing about these bracelets is that you can easily stack them up and combine them to create a boho look. I personally like that look! Each bracelet comes careful packaged within a grey velvet pouch and a care card so you can make sure to look after it and store it well. 

Onto Fragrance, I have two to choose from. The first is DKNY Fresh Blossom EDP(£38, now £18). As you can imagine by the name of it, it's quite a fresh scent. It almost mimics the smell of Spring! It lasts so well through the day and it's just a beautiful scent overall. If your gal or girlfriend is a fan of strong, fresh scents then this may be for them. It makes it all the more sweeter that it's reduced from £38 down to just £18 too. Now that's a bargain in my book. The other choice is *I am So...? EDP(£6.99, now £3.49). It is again a fresh but fruity scent with notes of mandarin, orange blossom and cashmere wood. 

 For some, fake lashes and nails are a must. I'm more of a nails gal but your other half or best friend could be quite the opposite. Speaking of nails, the *KISS Impress Fake Nails(£7.99) are the best I've tried for a long time. They are super easy to apply and they don't damage the nail underneath. No glue is needed with these! They come in many different shapes and styles too. For reference, I have the styles 'Night Fever' and 'Rock It'. I totally recommend KISS for their fake lashes too. I have included two different styles from their range, the *KISS True Volume Lashes in Ritzy and the *KISS Lash Couture Faux Mink Lashes in Midnight. The True Volume Lashes are more for the daytime I'd say. They look quite fluttery and wispy, while still looking natural, but the Faux Mink Lashes are the opposite. They are more suitable towards the night time as they look more full, volumised and super black. Seeing as I'm not usually a fake lashes kinda gal, I actually bloody love them, and maybe your fave girl would like them too.

Now, moving onto my favourite subject, Makeup. The Buxom Plump Gone Wild Set(£14) would be a good choice. It contains a mini trio of a gloss, lipstick and a cream which, when used together make lips look full and voluptuous. Surely that's perfect for Valentines Day right? I'm sure there will be plenty of smooching, whether you're in a relationship or single. 

If there's one thing that will make a makeup junkie super happy come Valentines Day, it's something from Charlotte Tilbury. I for one would be all over it like a rash. Gross, but true. The Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk(£24) would be the perfect gift. It's a neutral nude pink which is so wearable and the perfect pairing for all or most skin tones. And if you want to go down the less pricier route, you can always opt for one, or perhaps a few of the I Heart Makeup Blushing Hearts(£4.99), a triple baked blusher which you can use as a singular blush or merged together. Not only is it light on the purse strings but the heart shaped packaging is so appropriate for V-Day too, right?

Now finally is something for bath/body, the *Hempz Sweet Pineapple and Honey Melon Bath and Body Oil. It is enriched with 100% pure natural hemp seed oil which benefits the skin by restoring moisture. You can either use it in the bath by running it directly under the tap, or apply using your hands after the bath. I prefer it as a bath oil as it effectively does the same thing without needing to make the effort to rub it into the skin. It made my skin feel so soft and silky, and the scent made it all the more pleasurable as it lingers on the skin throughout the day.

I hope I helped you out here! There was so many other products I wanted to include too but I didn't want it to be too overwhelming with products.  

What are you hoping for this Valentines Day, and how are you spending it?
