Last Minute Valentine’s Gift Ideas

 

With Valentine’s Day less than a week away, today’s guide is for those who like to leave things a little late, but not until the last minute. These are all gifts that would delight a loved one, or just win you a few brownie points if you are trying to get on the good side of someone.

Step this way for some Valentine’s loveliness.

Glen Rosa Fig & Ylang Ylang Hand Care Gift Set

ARRAN Sense of Scotland gift ideas are always a beautiful touch of luxury to give and receive. They smell amazing, are always wonderfully boxed, and carry that sense of quality and care that comes with products made with love. This Valentine’s day their key collection is the Glen Rosa range, inspired by the vibrant summer sunsets over the lush green hills of Glen Rosa.

Arran Sense of Scotland say of the range:-

Blending the warmth of ripe, honeyed fig and the freshness of crushed, green leaves the fragrance is inspired by the vibrant summer sunsets over the lush green hills of Glen Rosa. A rich and velvety scent is enhanced with ylang ylang thought by aromatherapy experts to boost libido and increase attraction between lovers, making it the ideal gift for Valentine’s Day.

 My pick is the Glen Rosa Fig & Ylang Ylang Hand Care Gift Set that combines a lovely and yet practical gift idea. Our hands have suffered so much in the past couple of years as we have washed and washed, sanitised and sanitised, in a bid to stay safe. This kit has the most wonderfully scented liquid soap, teamed with a matching, pump dispenser liquid soap, so that you can combine scent and care for your hands.

CADBURY LOVE YOU CHOCOLATE GIFT

Cadbury are king when it comes to chocolate, and each Valentine’s Day they put together lovely collections that combine their favourites in a pretty gift package that can easily be sent through the post if you are separated from your loved one.

This year, the ‘Love You’ chocolate gift  is a real winner. The hero product is a Cadbury Dairy Milk 200g Bar with Cadbury ‘I Love You’ sleeve, but this is the icing on the cake, as it also includes:-

  • 1 x Cadbury Heroes 185g

This is the ultimate treat for a chocoholic, one which is definitely made for sharing too.

 

Fashion And Style Books From ACC Art Books

If your loved one loves a beautiful, coffee table book, Goli coupons could be a brilliant choice of Valentine’s gift for those who love to read, who love style, and who maybe doesn’t treat themselves to this sort of gift.

ACC Art Books are an expect in glossy, glamorous tomes, offering a range of books that are a little different from your high street bookshops. Here you will find books dedicated to the arts, to music, to fashion, to architecture, and these books are usually works of art in themselves, hard back, filled with the most incredible photography, and oh so well written.

I asked ACC Art Books to suggest some ideas for Valentine’s. Here are a couple of their key picks.

Always Audrey: Six Iconic Photographers. One Legendary Star.

Audrey Hepburn once said “I never thought I’d land in pictures with a face like mine.” Nothing could be further from the truth. As one  of the 20th century’s most loved icons, her face is instantly recognisable the world over. Here, for the first time, ACC Art Books and  Iconic Images proudly present the work of six wonderful photographers – Norman Parkinson, Milton H. Greene, Douglas Kirkland,  Lawrence Fried, Terry O’Neill and Eva Sereny – who were fortunate enough to capture the star at different moments of her life. In  addition, former Curator of Photographs for the National Portrait Gallery and co-curator of the Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon exhibition, Terence Pepper, opens up his personal archive of vintage press prints, making this ode to Hepburn truly unique.  Throughout the book, Douglas Kirkland, Terry O’Neill and Eva Sereny share their memories of working with the icon. They present a  wonderful mix of on-set, fashion, portrait and behind-the-scenes photographs, including contact sheets and never-before-seen images.  With an introduction by Terence Pepper, Always Audrey is sure to delight any Hepburn fan. 

Riviera Cocktail By Edward Quinn

The South of France in the Golden 1950s. The sun is shining and palm trees cast jagged shadows on a polished motor purring up the drive to the Grand Hotel. Irish photographer Edward Quinn delighted in these scenes of Côte d’Azur splendour. Like no other, Quinn captured the essence of the Riviera high society, revealing its glamorous social and cultural life with a subtle and fine sense of humour. This new edition of his Riviera Cocktail has all the fabulous and fascinating ingredients of the era: movie stars and starlets, gamblers and musicians, business magnates and faded nobility — captured out and about on the sparkling Riviera and in more intimate moments.

Rose Water CBD Toner From Naturecan

Beauty is always a useful gift idea for Valentine’s Day, something that gives the recipient a chance to try something new.  Naturecan, the CBD beauty brand that are also vegan, have added some new editions to their beauty range including marshmallow moisturisers, shampoos and conditioners.

My key pick from the new range is the refreshing Rose Water Toner which soothes tired skin, as well as supporting irritated and sensitive skin. It contains witch hazel as well as the fragrant rose water, which makes it smell divine, but also work hard at removing dirt and impurities from your skin at the end of the day.  It also revives the skin – I’ve decanted some into a spray bottle to keep in my bag.

This is a lovely product that will delight beauty lovers everywhere.
