Valentine's gift guide

Are you a traditional roses, wine and chocolate giver or do you like to give something a little different?, maybe something more personal related to your loved ones interests.
I have put together  a few ideas for both for you this valentine's Day in my gift guide.

Firstly let's stick to traditional - 
Wine - you can never go wrong with a good bottle of wine so how about trying out this gorgeous rose- 
The Ned Pinot Rosé is the perfect wine to share over a romantic meal this Valentine’s Day. This
bright,crisp wine has a wonderful rose petal scented aroma and citrus and watermelon flavour, it makes the perfect accompaniment to a starter of steamed asparagus with shaved parmesan.
Or a beautiful goats cheese tartlet served with a green salad, or even a delicate seafood risotto
or paella. A match made in heaven.
The wine is blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, from the Waihopai Valley, Marlborough, New
Zealand, which gives it its gentle blush colour, and a creamy, dreamy texture.
Available from Majestic for £12.99 and Ocado for £9.34
The Ned Pinot Rosé will make Valentine’s Day a little more special this year.

For some truly indulgent treats that will big a missive hit then look no further than The Fudge Company. I have enjoyed trying the luxury Caramel selection and they are amazing!
A luxury, keepsake box stacked with twelve creamy, hand worked caramel favourites in six flavours: Sea Salted Caramel, 
Cherry Bakewell Caramel,

Mocha Caramel, 
Raspberry Caramel, 
Chilli Chocolate Caramel. 

All coated in thick milk chocolate and hand decorated.

If you are looking for something a little more personal for the one you love then how about something they love doing, maybe a gift voucher for a day out, a pamper session at a spa hotel, or something to help with their hobby.

What about this lovely Derwent Bullet Journal Set for the creative writer or sketcher in your life - 

The perfect Sketcher's companion, this journal has been designed with practicality in mind. At a handy A5 size you're ready to capture the world around you at a moments notice.

Skincare is really important especially as we get older so treating your loved one to some luxurious skincare products is bound to be a winner, especially when the results are going to get great result and visibly younger and healthier looking skin. I have been trying out these two products form Higher Nature and already can see and feel a difference.

For skin that feels firmer, try Higher Nature’s Aeterna Gold Collagen Crème Serum. From the age of 30, collagen levels drop, leaving skin prone to fine lines and wrinkles. This formula has been specially created to give skin back its bounce, with a nourishing dose of marine collagen extract, aloe vera leaf juice, sweet almond oil and vitamins E and B5. Apply sparingly on the face, neck and décolletage at night before your usual moisturiser for optimal results.

  • Collagen infused skin serum
  • For healthy, younger looking skin
  • Fights signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines and reduced elasticity
  • Contains powerful plant extracts
  • Use at night for best results

Healthy skin starts from the inside out, which is why Higher Nature developed Aeterna Gold Collagen Drink. Formulated specially to support firmer, more youthful looking skin, this glow-getting collagen drink contains carefully balanced vitamins, botanicals, hyaluronic acid and pure marine (non-shark) collagen. It comes in a highly absorbable form that can be added to your juices and works to maintain skin's moisture, aid tissue renewal and support collagen production for skin that looks and feels great. The perfect partner to collagen creme serum.
