Last Minute Valentines Day Gift Guide

Though valentines day is not about materialistic goods, it is a good opportunity to treat the one you love. It's 3 days until valentines day which is crazy considering it feels like a week since I posted my Christmas gift guide! 

Here are some last minute gift ideas for the special person in your life. 

C H O C O L A T E 
The way to anyones heart, chocolate is always a safe option and one that will be much appreciated by the receiver! this is the ultimate last minute gift that is easy to access so I couldn't not include this! 

P I Z Z A P L A T E S 
Another food related gift (can you tell I'm a foodie?) how adorable are these pizza plates from B&M? Sit back, order a dominos and have a chilled out valentines evening together - simplicity can sometimes be key! 

B A T H T R E A T S 
I think a Lush bath bomb is perfect for any occasion so these will always make their way into my gift guides! They have some really beautiful sets in store right now so if you live near a Lush this is the perfect gift. 
For a luxe bath treat I am obsessed with the Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée honey bath and I think this would make a lovely valentines gift, the perfect pamper treat to gift  your loved one! 

F R A G R A N C E 
Like chocolate, this is another timeless last minute gift idea - is there a specific scent you know your loved one can't get enough of? or something sentimental between the two of you? even just a scent you think they would like - perfumes are the perfect personal gift. 

B E A U T Y 
Heading away this valentines day? if so, lucky you! World Duty Free have some incredible beauty pieces in and for a discounted price meaning you can treat yourself and your loved one. I have been loving the Galifornia* blush from Benefit and it would make the perfect pink date night blush, pair with the Loreal miss manga set* and you have a completed date night look.  
The Body Shop have a lovely collection of body massage oils available and I think these are the perfect valentines treat for you and your loved one to enjoy a massage.

What are your go-to valentines gifts?

My Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Collection

Charlotte Tilbury is by far my favourite beauty brand, everything from the oh-so beautiful packaging to the quality of the products has me repurchasing and adoring everything the brand has to offer. 

Before stumbling across Charlotte Tilbury on a Selfridges trip in Oxford Street I felt as though I hadn't found anything that wowed me in terms of makeup, I had never been into collecting products from a brand and I owned 2 'high end' lipsticks from  MAC... Since the first lipstick I tried from CT everything changed and I am now well and truly obsessed. 

Kim KW, Hot Lips Collection 

This really is the perfect pink/beige toned nude, I was a little sceptical at first as to how this would look once applied against my ghostly pale skin tone but it is beautiful. The application is easy and the tapered square end of this lipstick makes it even easier to get a flawless finish around the lips, the longevity of this is just as incredible as all other CT lipsticks I've used and this is a treasured lipstick amongst my collection. 

Bitch Perfect, K.I.S.S.I.N.G Collection 

The lipstick that started my obsession with CT and one I hold close to my heart, this is a stunning peach toned pink and the perfect shade for Spring. 

Valentine, K.I.S.S.I.N.G Collection 

Sadly this one is now sold out *sobs* but this is one I am lucky enough to have in my collection, it's a beautiful soft pink shade and as the name describes the perfect valentines/day night lipstick. 

English Beauty, Matte Revolution 

This one is limited edition so if you are hesitating whether or not to get it, do! This is another beautiful pink lipstick (they're all different, promise!) the matte finish to this makes it very wearable and this is one I have been reaching for a lot lately. 

Pillow Talk, Matte Revolution 

Perhaps the most spoken about CT lipstick shade ever?! Though the hype is very much deserved as this is one of my all time favourite lipsticks! This is a dreamy shade of pink, with a slight beige undertone which is SO flattering - I am obsessed. 

Secret Salma, Hot Lips 

This was the second CT lipstick I was lucky enough to get and one that Dan very kindly chose for me (he's a keeper!) This shade is so flattering on brunettes, whenever I wear this I receive compliments on how glowing my skin is looking and I think its down to this! Its the perfect dark toned pink lipstick. 

Show Girl, Hollywood Lips 

My first CT liquid lipstick is this beautiful dark pink shade 'Show Girl' - the formula of these means they're easy to apply but last for hours, I was so impressed when I first tried this! I can't wait to buy more to see how the formula changes by colour. 

Do you own any Charlotte Tilbury lip products?
