Valentines Day

Monday, 6 February 2012

If you are looking for inspiration for Valentines Day do I have some gorgeous things for you! Whether you are your own Valentine, buying for a friend or "subtly" leaving your partner a hint, here are some ideas for him.....oppps I meant you ;)

Vera Wang Lovestruck Eau de Parfum
Talk about romantic!! The bottle is sooooo gorgeous and it matches the floral scent. Even though we know we should store perfume in a dry cool place, this bottle is just too cute to hide in a cupboard! Adore Beauty and David Jones are doing a shower gel GWP now. When you buy the 100ml you get a free 150ml shower gel. Get in quick!

Anything from "Dusk"
I really love Dusk. They have some beautiful candles and their home decor range is GORGEOUS!! If you have too much make up or fragrances, then you can find some gorgeous things here. If you're planning on buying flowers, go ahead and buy a vase from here too!! Check out their new range here. I have about 12 things I want from them on my wish list.

Peter Alexander PJs
I own so many of PA's nighties that it is ridiculous. I mean there are only 7 days of the week right! I love how comfortable they are and they are so cute! His overnight bags are amazing too. They even have a Valentines range. My favourite has to be this one. They also sell Glasshouse candls there which are divine! 

Mecca Cosmetica
Meccas sites is fantastic for guys who hate going shopping. Just choose what you want, pay and then wait for it to get shipped to you. They have a lot of brands that are hard to get in Australia all in the one place. And the great thing with the site is you can solely look at just the gift sets, or even talk online to their customer service to get help in what to choose! With brands like Too Faced, Smashbox, Nars, Eve Lom, Stila, This Works and Kiehls, it is hard to just pick one thing! You can see there gifts here

Absolutely Gorgeous Skincare
If your more into natural skincare, this brand is for you! They are free of parabens and SLS, and don't test on animals. Their packaging is gorgeous! It is worth reusing the bottles because they are too cute. My picks are their Bath Milk (left picture) or their travel gift pack (right) that includes a cleanser, moisturiser and face mask in a cute cosmetics bag. You can find their products here. If you sign up as a member you get $10 off your first order (over $50). They also offer gift wrapping (first is free, and others are $3.95) and a free sample!

Red Balloon
Red Balloon is a great site for something a little different. You can choose gift boxes or experiences. Depending on their personality, you can pick something for adventurous girls, or something less heart pounding like a cheese making course or wine tasting day. Girls check out ideas for your man too here! You can give him his dream of being a racing car driver, or learnt how to make his own beer and grill the perfect steak!

Are you a fan of Valentines Day? What are you giving? Or hoping to get?


  1. We don't do Valentine's day but one year he surprised me just before work with roses and balloons. I loved it:) Because our birthdays are in late February/early March there is just too much present-rush so I'm going to make him a great dinner on V-Day xx

  2. Mentioning Peter Alexander pj's was actually a really cool and cute idea to change things from the usual romantic (or corny) stuff. =D

  3. Awww Ingrid, it is always nice to get a surprise :)

    Reibun I'm glad you liked it. The usual flowers or underwear can be very tacky ;)
