8 Valentine’s Day Treats for Yourself or A Loved One2 min read

Valentine's Day Treats

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. But don’t let it be a day that you hate! Instead look to it as a day to love yourself! It’s not often we have an excuse to splurge on ourselves so take advantage of it! 😉 I have put together this little Valentine’s Day Treats guide for anyone who is looking to treat themselves or to spoil a loved one.

Valentine's Day Treats

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight

These are some of my favourite items, especially the flowers – aren’t they absolutely stunning?! I really love how they are presented.

Lush have an amazing Valentine’s range including bath bombs, bubble bars and a shower cream appropriately named Prince Charming! Prices start from as little as €2.50.

When I think of scents for Valentine’s Day, fresh and floral comes to mind. Try Miss Dior’s Blooming Bouquet or Jo Malone’s Peony and Blush Suede.

I am obsessed with candles. They make the perfect gift! This set from Baylis and Harding immediately screamed “Valentine’s Day” to me! However, some other options would be Fresh Cut Roses or Cherry Blossom from Yankee candle – also making the perfect transition into spring!

Many cosmetic companies bring out a special range of products for Valentine’s Day. I love this Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Penelope Pink, however they have a lot of other beautiful shades too. Another option would be Too Faced’s Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette!

Alex and Ani have jewellery for whichever female in your life you are buying for: whether it’s your friend, girlfriend, mother, grandmother or godmother – they’ve got you covered!

And let’s face it, you really can’t go wrong with chocolates!

Or why not celebrate it as “Galentine’s Day” by throwing a party with your favourite girl friends and drinking rosé?!

Whatever your opinions of Valentine’s Day are, I hope this post has reminded you that you shouldn’t forget about yourself!

P.S. I am fully aware that these gifts may not be the cheapest but we all deserve a treat once in a while! I’m sure whoever you are buying for will really love you if they receive one of these!

What are some of your favourite treats for Valentine’s Day?

    I love the selection you’ve chosen – particularly chocolate (yum!) and the flowers (gorgeous!). Out wedding anniversary is 2 days after Valentine’s Day, so we don’t get to celebrate it much, but I LOVE the idea of treating yourself – all us ladies deserve a bit of pampering right?! #humpdayhype

    I love the look of that lipstick, and pink champagne is always a winner with me. Sometimes it’s nice to treat ourselves isn’t it? And totally allowed. Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo and for joining us, it’s fab to have you along.
