Valentine's Day Round Up

Wednesday, February 07, 2018


I am not usually a big fan of Valentine's Day but this year I have someone special to celebrate with and I think that makes all the difference. I know many see it as a gimmick and that you should tell your other half you love them every day but what harm is there in telling them every day AND having a few days per year where you make an extra effort and enjoy spoiling each other?! For those of you who love to treat the love of your life I have a fabulous round up of items here I thought would be perfect for Valentine's Day.


If you are a chocolate lover and like to try new flavours, this Jenny Wren three-layered folding box is really cute. The box contains twelve hand-finished Belgian chocolates and truffles. Four milk, Four white chocolate and four dark chocolate. Whether you buy them as a gift or for the two of you to share after a nice romantic meal. 

I can definitely vouch for them. Me and Sam have finished them all off between us. Thankfully he loves white chocolate whereas I am a milk chocolate fan so there were few arguments over who gets which and although I don't usually like dark chocolate, the flavours were so intriguing and I actually enjoyed them too! The box is really lovely too, it opens up so that you can view all three trays at once. I would definitely buy them again.

They are available to buy in Sainsbury's in the lead up to Valentine's Day at £6.49.



I think jewellery can be a great way to let someone know you love them. Some of my favourite possessions are pieces of jewellery that were gifted to me by friends and family and therefore mean a lot to me. Whether you wear it every day or on special occasions, you always think of that person whenever you look at that item. Jewellery doesn't need to be expensive to be special either. Jewellery Box have a huge range of stylish jewellery at really low prices. The sterling silver 'Love you to the moon and back' pendant is just £23 and the arrow set above which actually consists of separate necklace, ring and earrings come to just £18.36 together. The website has so many nice unique pieces to suit everyone and is definitely worth a look if you are on a budget. 


If you are looking for something a bit fun and different then why not think about a gift for the bedroom. So Divine are a new sex toy brand who are looking to provide sex toys for everyone. If you are a beginner then something simple like a vibrating bullet is a great starter to be used alone or to be enjoyed together. So Divine have a great beginners guide for anyone to help choose the best toys for your lifestyle!


For the guys out there you may want to look your best for a Valentine's Day date night, or ladies you might want to gently persuade your man to do some grooming before you go out. The Gillette Fusion Pro Shield Chill lubricates before and after, the blades lay down a protective layer to shield from irritation. Plus, FlexBall Technology makes maximum contact* over contours and gets virtually every hair. Gillette Fusion ProShield is Gillette's most advanced razor and is available to buy from Boots and other retailers. 

Guylian is definitely one of my favourite chocolate brands. You may not know that the Guylian brand actually started with a love story. 'In 1958, lovers Guy and Liliane combined their delicious praline recipe and delicate shapes to create the seashells we now know and love'. How cute is that?! I had no idea. There is actually a large range of Guylian products and as well as the classic sea shell shape we are used to, they also do a selection of praline hearts especially for the ones we love. I am always happy to receive Guylian chocolates, whatever the occasion. 

Guylian's Valentine's Day chocolates are available from all major supermarkets, selected independent stores nationwide and via the website www.guylian.com


This is an exciting one. So many of my friends watch the show, and it is next up on my watchlist (so please no spoilers!) Peaky Blinders is hugely popular and people are going crazy for merchandise and themed parties etc. so if you and your partner are partial to a bit of Peaky Blinders, there is now a range of spirits available at 31Dover.com. The range consists of Rum, Irish whiskey and Gin each with their own unique flavourings. I was sent the Spiced Dry Gin to try, it is made from a blend of nine botanicals including ginger and grains of paradise. It is so good! Paired with a good tonic, you can't go wrong. 

Of course if that is not your thing 31Dover.com actually sell a huge range of alcohol to suit everyone. It is definitely worth a look!
