Valentine's Day Gift Guide

I wanted to pop together a little girly gift guide for Valentine's Day as I just think it's the sweetest thing ever and I love anything pink, heart-shaped and chocolatey. Although I'm dreaming of a beautiful bunch of pink and cream roses, I've collected some of the loveliest items that I think would make the perfect treat for your sweetheart... 

I spotted this gorgeous new lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury on Pink Peony Home's Instagram stories before Christmas and it instantly went straight onto my wishlist. I adore the gorgeous rose gold tube that the lipstick comes in and even though I don't own Charlotte's famous Pillow Talk Lipstick (although I wish that I did!), I had to add this one to my collection. It's a beautiful soft shimmering rose pink colour with a very fine golden sparkle throughout which looks perfect paired over other nude or pink lip liners but also looks just as pretty on it's own for a subtle sparkle. I love the blush pink packaging with the gorgeous gold glitters on it and the quality feels so creamy and luxurious to wear on the lips, as well as being quite long-lasting. 

Another love-themed makeup product that I have is one which has been in my collection for quite a while but is one of my favourites. I love the gorgeous heart-shaped packaging which would make a sweet gift for Valentine's Day and the shade I have is 'Candy Glow' which is made up of three shimmering pink and peach tones. If you swirl them together, they create a lovely flushed pink colour which I think is so pretty and fresh for over the spring and summer months.

One of my fave candles ever! I bought this Blush Bouquet candle from Yankee Candle's Sunday Brunch collection last year and have since repurchased as I love the scent and colour so much. It's the perfect one for around Valentine's Day and springtime as it's a soft sugary pink colour and the scent has notes of peonies, sweet pea, lilies and cherry blossom so it has the most gorgeous floral scent which isn't too overpowering either. It reminds me of walking through the park on a fresh spring day amidst all of the falling pink and white cherry blossom petals! 

I don't know many girls that don't love a gorgeous bubble bath and around Valentine's Day, I love to have a pink bath filled with lots of bubbles, scented candles and a little glass of prosecco. One of my favourite products for a really luxurious bath is this Summer Dream Bubble Heaven from Champney's which comes in gorgeous blush pink packaging and looks so pretty displayed on the side of your bath. It has a really lovely fresh and fruity scent with a mixture of peach, mango, orange and passionfruit although I do think it smells a lot like strawberries and champagne which is perfect for Valentine's Day. It creates loads of fluffy bubbles and is heavenly for some chilled out me time! 

I have a special little place in my heart for the Charbonnel Et Walker Pink Marc De Champagne Truffles as they are just my favourites ever, but as they are so expensive, they are a little luxury that are reserved for treats only! I decided to include the pink love heart-shaped box that they have available which is so perfect for Valentine's Day and the chocolates themselves are so dreamy. They are white chocolate truffles with a hint of strawberry and velvety champagne centres that are dusted in icing sugar and are perfect with a glass of pink champagne! 

I've had this gorgeous blush pink jewellery box from Ted Baker for a little over a year as I decided to treat myself to it in the January sales last year. I chose the small size as I do already have another jewellery box and I want to use this one to keep really special items in (and I'm forever wishing for the large Ted Baker jewellery box with the spinning ballerina!). This one is a beautiful soft blush pink colour complete with a grey suede lining and finished off with a dainty rose gold bow detail which is so girly and pretty. It would make the loveliest gift to treat a special someone to and you could even complete it with a pretty love heart necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings to go inside. 

One of my favourite brands for beautiful skincare products is Jurlique and I particularly love their Rose range. I treated myself to their Rosewater Balancing Mist a few years ago and haven't looked back! It's such a lovely refreshing product which I like to spritz on my face after I've used my other skincare products and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and glowy. It also has a very fresh delicate rose scent and is the perfect product for using over the spring months. I adore the gorgeous ombre pink bottle which looks so dreamy sitting on your dressing table and it would make the perfect princessy gift! 

Pink Love Heart Marshmallows 
If you're looking for a little sweet something to add to a gift or just for a smaller present, I came across this adorable little round box of love heart marshmallows in The Card Factory. Finished with a pretty pink satin ribbon bow, they would be lovely for adding to a Valentine's Day hot chocolate for a romantic treat! 

White Chocolate Pink Heart Lollipop
The last item that I wanted to include in this blog post is another little gift idea from The Card Factory. I thought this white chocolate lollipop adorned with pink and white love hearts and sugary sprinkles was so cute and you could even pop it inside a Valentine's Day card too! 

Which one of my Valentine's Day gift ideas would you most like to receive?
