A guide to Valentines Day gifts 2018

As the most romantic day of the year nears, I thought that it would highly useful to give you some ideas as to what would be good Valentine’s Gifts For Him & Her. When it comes to gifts - particularly for celebratory days, most of us are often conflicted as to what we should buy so I hope this gift guide gives you a good idea of some classic and unconventional gifts you could use or even inspire you to make your own.


How could you possibly go wrong with candles? With more than a plethora of scents available, it's almost impossible for you not to find a scent that you think someone will like. Although everyone has different likes when it comes to scents so try and find out what kind of notes e.g amber, floral that your giftee may like and then make your choice from there!

Something homemade

Not got any cash to spend on a present or simply want to give a gift that personal touch? Make something homemade! Materials as well as make your own/DIY kits are available from a bunch of stores such as Poundland and the materials are super cheap. One of my favourite things I like to do using DIY materials are decorate a picture frame or personalised letter. Recently, I gave one of my dearest friends a personalised picture frame that I had decorated with positive words to remind them of how amazing they are!

Makeup Brush Sets

Any beauty lover always needs more brushes... enough is never really enough when it comes to makeup tools. There are also a number of colours you can purchase a makeup brush set in so if you know the person your buying a gift for has a favourite colour e.g pink, blue .. there are 100s upon 100s of brush sets in those colours and more! 


I think that journals or diaries are really great gift simply because they are a great outlet for people to share their feelings, emotions, achievements and more. They are also incredibly varied in their designs and colours therefore its very easy to go for a classic look or find something a little more eccentric. It's a great reminder as well as being motivating for your giftee to keep chasing after their dreams, be more organised and express themselves.


Yes, the classic go to gift that is not only enticing but hard to get wrong. Buy some chocolate for your giftee! I would say go for a chocolate set that offers more than just two to three different variations of chocolate, a good suggestion would be Thornton's continental collection or Hotel Chocolat's The Valentine Sleekster!

I would love to hear your own gift ideas below in the comments and make sure to let me know if you decide use any of these gift ideas!
