Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone, although it is a great excuse to either: receive a present, give a present or get a present for yourself – because let’s be honest, we could all use an excuse to splurge on ourselves.
This year, forget the typical flowers and chocolates combo and try something a little less overdone, something a little more personal. And because we know that’s easier said than done, we’ve put together a list of really great presents that any one of us would love to receive! Hint, hint.
Sweet Mickie Cookies
Literally everyone loves cookies (if on the rare occasion that they don’t, then more for you) and Sweet Mickie makes them so, so good! Choose from their range of gift boxes – our favourites are: Bloody Legend, I Fucking Love You and Treat Yo Self. Or, if you’ve got quite a few people you want to buy for, you can purchase 30 and customise them to say what you want!
Lace slip or lace bra? Yeah, nah. We want cute, comfy AF pjs instead. ASOS always have the cutest ones and right now they have some Valentine’s Day themed ones that you (or your loved one) just have to get your hands on.
Our faves: Wildfox Valentines What Boyfriend Lounge T-Shirt, $139.00, asos.com.au, ASOS Love Club Singlet & Pyjama Set, $36.00, asos.com.au, Hey Peachy Love Stories Ruffle Sleeve Night Dress, $40.00, asos.com.au
Sometimes a great card and dinner is all you need. And ASOS has a pretty great selection to choose from! Make it personal and write something nice, it’s the little things.
Our faves: Veronica Dearly Ryan Gosling Valentines Card, $6.00, asos.com.au, Girl Gang Card, $5.06, oldenglishprints.com.au, True Love, $4.99, cottonon.com, You’re Weird Card, $4.28, oldenglishprints.com.au
There’s a pretty high chance that the person you’re buying for likes bubble baths, but if they don’t there’s still a high chance that they’ll like a bubble bath with you. Here are some of our favourites, all love themed of course!
Chances are, if you turn up to your partner’s house with a package from Mecca or Sephora you’re going to be a pretty big hit. Get a little of everything and make it a haul: a lipstick, a mascara, a face mask, an eye shadow palette and of course some good skincare. If you’re stuck, head to the new arrivals section – that’s your best bet.
Our faves: Tarte Toasted Eyeshadow Palette, $69.00, sephora.com.au, Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain (1 Rouge Tatouage), $57.00, mecca.com.au, Dr Jart+ Mask Water Jet Vital Hydra Solution (5 sheets), $36.00, sephora.com.au.
