Valentines Day Gift List

It's pretty difficult to avoid anything Valentines Day related at the moment, there are TV adverts, online gift lists and pinterest boards bombarding everyone. Admittedly it's pretty hard to believe in love and not be bitter about it this year, I've so far unfollowed any Valentines related boards on pinterest and found it hard not to be a tiny bit jealous of couples telling the world what their plans are for Friday. However, instead of focusing on the negatives I've decided to join the hoards in coming up with a gift list, except this gift list is for those ladies out there who are single. Maybe you've not been in a relationship before, been single for a while, don't want to be in a relationship or you've just come out of one and you could do with loving yourself for a while, take some time out and spoil yourself this Friday.

1. Time to pamper yourself, stick to the theme of all things pink and opt for a super bright nail polish by OPI.
2. Burn a gorgeous smelling Jo Malone candle, because lets be fair, who doesn't love a trip to the Jo Malone shop?
3. Whilst we're pampering ourselves, how about a new lipstick? I'm an absolute sucker for buying pink lipsticks at the moment, and this one looks gorgeous.
4. Treat yourself to a new mug to sip a warming hot chocolate from. Whipped cream and marshmallows are mandatory, obviously.
5. Why wait for someone else to buy you flowers? I'm planning on buying myself a bunch of flowers on Friday.
6. Angel by Thierry Mulger is my go to perfume at the moment, I'll definitely be wearing this for Valentines Day.
7. To round off your pamper night how about a new onsie?
8. Not much of a onsie wearing? This nightdress should do the trick.
9. If you don't fancy a hot chocolate, something fizzy would do the trick. Not that I want to alert people to a problem but I currently have two bottles of prosecco on my nightstand, maybe I should pop one in the fridge now.
10. Cake! Hopefully I'll be able to muster up the energy after work on Friday to make a cake, it's been my Valentines plan for a few weeks. I highly doubt that it'll look like this one but hopefully it'll be tasty.

Single this Valentines? Let me know what you're up to, happy Valentines Day everyone!



  1. Aw, I love this idea! It's so hard to write about Valentines as a single girl without being all bitter so this is a lovely positive spin. Love that nailpolish!

    1. It would have been quite easy for me to have been bitter about it this year (being dumped by your husband has that effect!) but I'm on a mission to change the way I think of myself, the world, other people - everything really. I know it's a cliche but it's so important to love yourself, and treating yourself on Valentines Day is one way to do that :)
