Soda & Lime Candles
Nothing sets the mood for love like an ambient glow! However, Soda & Lime candles are a bit more special than some wax in an overpriced jar. These designer babies are upcycled treats from some of the finer tipples, such as Hennessy, Billecart-Salmon and a cheeky ‘Quickie’ sav blanc. Each candle is handmade, cut from the original bottle and filled with a scented soy wax of your choice, featuring a wooden wick. The scents are addictive and can be chosen to match the character of your bottle, our faves fragrances are Champagne and Strawberries, Brown Sugar and Fig, Tahitian Vanilla and Sangria Punch. Yum!
Sexy underwear is synonymous with Valentine’s Day. A cheeky and presumptuous present, as there’s some assumption that you’re going to be seeing the recipient prance about in it later in the night. But what magnificent prancing they will be doing in the sexy little numbers from ASOS. Think Victoria’s Secret , but for a more wallet-friendly price. Itt’s a solid fave on the Valentine’s Gift Guide.
Bailey’s Chocolat Luxe
Indulge your loved one, or simply #TreatYoSelf with Bailey’s Chocolat Luxe, a concoction of Belgium Chocolate, Irish Whiskey and cream (serious drool). Who doesn’t love Bailey’s in all its creamy goodness? Well this unadulterated indulgence one-ups the classic with a rich chocolatey taste that makes it a pure sensory indulgence and the perfect way to woo. So good, it might just be worth stocking up on a couple of bottles! A serious date weapon, that never disappoints.
There is no woman alive that wouldn’t SWOON over a bouquet of chocolate flowers! Oh, so she says she doesn’t eat chocolate, LIES. Combining two of the most romantic items on the face of the planet means you can’t really go wrong. In case you are wondering Ryan Gosling was the third. If can’t hire Ryan Gosling to deliver the chocolate, we suggest going through a company such as Edible Blooms to choose a sweet bouquet to your budget and have them delivered straight to your loved one.
Giani Bernini Love Knot Necklace
I live by the mantra that if it features in James Bond, then it’s probably worth a look in. In my fave Bond movie, Casino Royale, brunette hottie Vesper Lynd sports a stunning ‘Bulgarian Love Knot’ necklace which probably costs an overseas holiday. However, you can profess your love for a fraction of the cost with this gorgeous Love Knot necklace from Macy’s in silver or gold. So, ditch the obvious heart symbols and go for something with class.
A Romantic Print
The trick with this cutesy and thoughtful idea is to NOT buy it from Kmart or Target! Because there’s a good chance your partner, lover or hot date has already seen it. Unless said partner is a monk who cares not for material possessions, and even then, they probably still signed up to the catalogue. We recommend Etsy for a romantic print that will earn you some serious points, a big ‘awww’ and affection for the rest of the night.
Kama Sutra Weekender Kit
For those who enjoy a bit of kinkiness just on the weekend or special occasions! It’s kind of like a Clarke Kent/ Superman scenario, it would become boring to be a superhero all the time, right? Tickle your partners fancy, literally with this cheeky little kit in Strawberry Dreams which features kissable body powder with feather tickler, body and massage oils in exotic flavours and of course some ‘love lubricant’. Indulge with these petite sensual luxuries, perfect for a naughty weekend away.
Keep your love smelling sweet with some swanky scents! Whilst you probably need a basic understanding of what smell and fragrances your date actually likes, it’s hard to go too wrong with these classics. Versace Man Eau Fraiche is a fresh interpretation of the Versace Man fragrance. A subtly sexy scent with smooth fruits, spiced with summer smells to leave your man smelling like a 10.
For the female love of your life, you can’t really go wrong with a fragrance called Romance, right? Right! This perfume will alight your senses with alluring ingredients including rose, citrus oils, lily, white violet, spicy notes of carnation and ginger. Patchouli, oakmoss and white musk finish the composition gently. We also think this perfume would suit our Boho Glam on a Budget look to a tee.
Heart Shaped Waffle Maker
Just YES! Waffles, the staple of all good romantics, sweet-tooth’s and hangover breakfasts available in the shape of cute little hearts. It’s the present that keeps on giving! But best of all this waffle maker from Maxkon has interchangeable plates so you can create your favourite breakfast treat in all sorts of fancy shapes. When my resubmitted food pyramid featuring waffles as the staple ‘eat all the time’ food gets approved by credible health authorities, you’ll wish you had purchased multiple as gifts. It’s a no-brainer.
Mumm Rose Champagne
There’s something magical and scientific about popping a bottle of champagne. The anticipation, the POP, the bubbles racing to the top in ways I could explain if I’d listened in Year 7 science. It also enhances your ‘chemistry’…see what I did there. Nothing screams ‘I am totally a sophisticated adult that doesn’t play video games!’ like a swanky drop of champagne…better yet, nothing screams it louder than PINK champagne. If you want to look sophisticated AF without breaking the bank, then reach for a bottle of Mumm Rose and the correct champagne glasses to celebrate the international day of love.
