February is the month of LOVE. I feel like with January lasting 6 years it’s now time to actually enjoy 2018 and this month isn’t going too bad, especially with the killer week next week that contains Pancake Day and Valentine’s Day consecutively. Unbelievable scenes.
Of course Valentine’s Day is all about that special someone in your life. I’ll be spending my evening at the Chinese with my other half (probably going to turn into a tradition knowing us), but I think it’s also important to appreciate the women in our lives whether it be our best girls, our online gal pals, our mums, our grandmas, anyone who is alone, or of course OURSELVES! Who says Valentine’s Day has to be so limited to one person when there are so many people that we love?
I’ve teamed up with Debenhams to share some gift ideas for the women in your life (which will also work if you’re a guy in need of a few hints!). No matter how big or small your gift may be sometimes it’s the thought that counts!
Girls, we love perfume, don’t we? If you’re stuck on what to get then generally (if you’re like me) you’ll accept anything, but if not then pick something out with them, or have a look at what they already use and see if it needs topping up. If you didn’t get them any for Christmas then there are so many post-Christmas perfume sales on at the moment!
I picked up this Gucci Bloom perfume from Debenhams as I’d tried a sample in the past and never purchased it – it’s the most GORGEOUS scent and isn’t the bottle the most photogenic thing in the world?! I’m thinking of buying one for my mum because I know she’d love it and it’s also the first Gucci thing both of us would’ve owned… Fancy!
Some earrings or a necklace can make the perfect small gift (especially if you’re on a tighter budget) plus you usually get so much choice that even the novice-ests of novices (keep talking Robyn) can find something that they think a girl might like.
This pair of oversized earrings are *drumroll* only £4.20 in the sale and you’ll be amazed at some of the other jewellery/accessory bargains in the Debenhams sale. I literally feel like a royal when I wear these!
Ahhh lingerie. The ultimate gift, and one for the special ones in your life (listen out boys). Whether you’re in a new relationship, an old relationship, you have that bond with your girl pals, or you want some for yourself, Debenhams have got you covered.
I know you’re thinking “BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT SIZE SHE IS”… HONEY, JUST ASK HER.
Lingerie is one of those more intimate gifts and can sometimes mean a little more if you really want to impress, so don’t be shy and if you’re particularly clueless then ask your girl what sorta thing she wants.
I’m definitely a comfy lingerie girl so bralettes and silky sets are what I tend to go for. The black crop top bralette above keeps you all covered up but I love the open-back details and the frill black lace. It’s got the sexy vibe but it’s SO comfortable that I can lounge around in it too which is definitely what I want from a bralette like that.
Secondly I opted for the dark grey set below (bra, underwear) – trying my best to steer away from black and thought the grey was a lush option. There’s nothing better than wearing matching bra and underwear either is there?!
Make sure you head over to Debenhams for your last minute Valentine’s Day gifts! Let me know in the comments what you think of the bits I chose and if you think we should remember the others in our lives on the day!
