Thought I would get in the romantic spirit and post about some of my favourite finds which I think would make great Valentines Day gifts. Me and Ste don’t overly celebrate on February 14th as we don’t think you should need a special day to treat each other, but we do get little gifts and normally celebrate with a nice dinner. What are your plans for the big day? Let me know in the comments below!
First up – who can resist some sexy lingerie? Jasmine Stacey is an absolutely amazing and talented designer who I have talked about before. Her lingerie is designed for ostomates although it is perfect for anyone fancying a little more coverage in the tummy area – mum tums can be banished! The Red Bow Ouvert Brief is perfect for Valentines Day and will make you feel a million dollars as well as being a treat for your partner.
If you are looking for something a little more covered up, I couldn’t recommend the classics (both in black and the slightly more risque, crotchless ivory) enough and also Jasmine’s new designs – the Floral Collection, the Emerald and Royal Blue which are simply stunning.
Check out the Jasmine Stacey Collection website here and have a browse, you won’t be disappointed. And you better be quick as I hear some sizes are already out of stock or in short supply. As a side note I hear the men’s range is coming along nicely so hopefully it won’t be too much longer before we can see what Jasmine has designed for the men in our lives.
Next on the list is always chocolate! I follow the lovely lady on Twitter (check out One Hull Of A Mum) and saw she posted these amazing looking treats. I know many people who follow a vegan diet and most of the time treats for them aren’t well publicised so here I am doing my bit for awareness and all you vegan readers. I just thought they were beautifully packaged, are fantastically priced (from £3) and I am a big fan of supporting small businesses. You can order from the Scrummy Crumb Vegan Etsy shop by clicking here
If you are looking to treat the lady in your life to some pampering treats I would highly recommend The Mummy Club subscription box. For £18 a month, the special Mummy will receive a box filled with support, goodies and pick me ups straight to her front door. There is also the option to purchase mini boxes and one off boxes as gifts. It is another great small business which I am pleased to support (I am a subscriber) and £1 from the sale of every box goes to PANDA which helps support parents with pre- and post-natal mental illness. Check out the website here and you can also contact them on Instagram.
Don’t forget the card! I have ordered from Love Layla before and the cards are great quality and arrive quickly. There are far more (and much more risque) available on their website, but here are a few of their Valentines Day offerings. Obviously being an ostomate I don’t have to worry about farting in front of my boyfriend, but you can’t beat some toilet humour!
One for the boys now and especially for those bearded fellows. I came across Beard Poo on Instagram and loved their little Valentines Day limited edition gift set which includes
- Beardpoo Shampoo
- Beardpoo Moisturiser
- Love Hearts
- Flute of red beard glitter
This set is available for £19.99 by clicking here and with every purchase you will be helping support CALM, a charity helping prevent male suicide as Beard Poo donates 25% of it’s profits to them which is amazing.
You can’t go wrong with a nice bottle of perfume or aftershave. Some of my favourites are This Is Her, Armani Diamonds and Jimmy Choo. This is Him for men is also one of my favourites to buy for Ste, as are Jean Paul Gaultier.
Hope you like some of my ideas and you have a really lovely and romantic day next week. And if you are single don’t forget to go and treat yourself too! Would love to hear how you are celebrating in the comments below, don’t forget to let me know!
