Valentines Day // little gifts

Valentines Day is a funny one - a proper love/hate holiday for a lot of people. I personally enjoy it, even though I know it's commercialised and I know you "shouldn't need one day to show your other half that you love them" blah blah blah. I didn't want to do a full on gift guide (a la my Christmas ones) because they take a ton of work and I've recently had a huge deadline at uni and been on holiday. Anyway, long intro aside, here's just a few Valentines Day gifts.

My favourite hand creams BY FAR come from Crabtree & Evelyn; I've tried sooooo many scents and they're all just lush - so you can imagine I was buzzing to get my hands on three more. Pun intended, always. The scents are Evelyn Rose, Pear & Pink Magnolia, and Rosewater. These came alongside their actual Valentines promotion: their limited edition rose & white chocolate biscuits which were actually surprisingly nice, and I don't particularly like the taste of roses. Except the Cadbury's chocolate version.

BEES. Something that makes a lovely gift is art, and Etsy is the place to go to find it - this piece is by a lovely lady called Colette who runs the store Canvasbutterfly. I love bees, and I love art, and this is just so incredibly beautiful, it makes me smile every time I see it. At £6.50 this is such an affordable amazing present for someone 

I've also got the most amazing handbag in the world ever - Vendula London's Diner Box Bag, which is just everything you could ever want in life. It's cute, quirky, good quality and fits more in it than I expected it to. What self-respecting human being wouldn't want a bag that literally looks like a diner? The detail is amazing and it's got a little twisty clasp thing to keep your stuff safe. Absolute winner.

What will you be buying for your loved ones this valentines day?
