Ok, ok, I know this is a little late, but these days it’s pretty easy to pick up Valentines Day gifts last minute. So here I am with some suggestions for you.
Firstly have a think about what she enjoys on a daily basis. Is she into fitness, cooking, beauty? Does she have a hobby or particular interest?
Personally, I love makeup and can’t get enough of it. If you don’t know what to get simply rummage though her make up bag and order whats almost run out or has been well used. She clearly likes it and would be happy with a replacement!
Places like Boots are ideal fro last minute Valentines Day gifts for her. You could pick up hair and beauty items, perfume, even things like photo albums and DVDs.
You could buy her some of her favourite tanning products, like these from St. Moriz*. Being a pale, English rose, I quite like to use tan enhancing products to give myself a natural glow. Especially in the winter! I’ve heard great things about this brand so they’re worth a try, especially as they are so reasonably priced.
This Christmas I received an amazing gift set full of Sleek make up* products. They are such good value and amazing quality. I highly recommend their eyeshadow palettes and lip glosses. Not to mention their lush highlighting palette. My fave lip cream is called Birthday Suit.
You can’t go wrong with buying her a new perfume. I absolutely love having 2 or 3 different scents that I can choose from. Vera Wang Princess is a popular choice, and not too powerful that she won’t like it (in my opinion). My favourite is Lancome La Vie Est Belle, which is rather sweet. You can pick up decent perfumes from most supermarkets or your local boots. So there’s still time!
I’m really into my skincare routine at the moment and go through cleanser and toner super fast. I’d be really happy if I received some new bottles of the Clarins products I use to clean my face each night. It’s expensive so isn’t something I can always afford to buy myself.
Lingerie could be a good option for a last minute Valentines Gift, as you could secretly look at her current underwear to find out her size. Then pop to your local supermarket and I’m sure they will have some lovely bits to choose from. Not exactly your Ann Summers, but better than nothing! Or do you have an out of town Next store near you? That’s the perfect place to buy some nice underwear. I love this set from Fantasie.com*. They offer a great selection and go up to a 38G so cater for bigger sizes.
Those are just a few last minute Valentines Day gift ideas that you can hopefully pick up quite easily from somewhere local.
And if you really can’t find any gifts, remember a bunch of flowers, box of chocolates and lovely card goes a long way.
