A Couple of Valentine’s Day Ideas…..

Posted by

This Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath Anniversary Edition is expensive but makes your bath that extra bit special. It has an old fashioned glass bottle which you can reuse and it smells gorgeous.

Something a bit cheaper but still just a lovely smelling is a Bodhi gift set. The products don’t contain any harmful parabens, sulphates and petrochemicals and has a high ratio of essential oils. I love this cute I heart…. t shirt from La Redoute and it’s much cheaper than you would think at just £9.

Find-Me-A-Gift have some good ideas including this Rose Compact, the Valentine’s themed snuggie blanket and loads more. Not too sure about this Cupid’s Cushion though!  I mean it’s a fun idea but I personally wouldn’t pay £18 for it (certainly not the £30 when it’s not in the sale).  There are some much nicer gifts on the website which I would choose over this cushion.

For something different, why not try this Black Moth Truffle Vodka? I’ve got to admit that I wasn’t a massive fan when I first tasted it – it tastes quite salty. I’ve never actually had a proper truffle so can’t say whether they taste anything like the vodka but it is made using them so I would assume that it does! The website has lots of ideas for cocktails using the Truffle Vodka, some of them are very odd and not what you would think to put together but they somehow work!If you’re not sure about something quite as exotic as the Truffle Vodka, why not try BLOOM Gin.  It has “delicate floral notes and aromas, enriched by the natural botanicals of chamomile, pomelo and honeysuckle, capture the uplifting sense of spring” according to the website.  I’ve got to be honest, I’ve only tried it with tonic but there are some really nice looking cocktail recipes on their website if you want to jazz it up a little.

I don’t know about you but I can’t tell the difference between sparkling wine and proper Champagne (unless I drink one after the other!) so if, like me, you can’t afford to splash out on the real stuff then Hardys have a great alternative – Hardys Crest Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir. They’ve also got a rose version which tastes delicious as well.
