We don’t really ‘do‘ Valentines Day in our house – we never really have as it’s just not our thing. However, as the days count down before Baby Peaches arrival, it’s got me in the mood to celebrate our last Valentines Day together as a couple, before we become a little family. We aren’t exchanging cards but as little gestures to each other we are giving sweet (but useful) gifts – things that will pamper and make each other feel special and to celebrate a day of just being ‘us’ before baby. So, with this in mind – I’ve put together a few gift ideas along the same lines. Here are a few of my favourite picks this year:
Pampering before baby is high on my agenda at the moment, so this lovely bundle of treats from Crabtree and Evelyn is my perfect gift right now. The All Butter Rose and White Chocolate Biscuits (£5.00) are rich and delicious and with the Ultra Moisturising Hand Therapy (£6.00 per tube) so fragrant and luxurious – a real treat after all that busy nesting and scrubbing around the house!
I absolutely love flowers, but always feel a bit sad when my lovely, beautiful bouquet withers and dies. That’s why I was so excited to find these beautiful faux flowers by Cote Noire. These Oriental Lillies in Clear Glass (£50.00) are so realistic, but will last forever, so we can enjoy them time and time again. The arrangement also comes with a 10ml Spring Flower Scent bottle so you can refresh your flowers at any time. The scent is light and pretty and adds a touch of freshness to any room.
I absolutely love long, hot, baths – so having my own Personalised Towels from Christy (various prices) is the perfect gift for me. We have a lovely heated towel rail in our bathroom, so getting out of the bath into a warm, fluffy towel is just a dream. I love Christy towels as they are such great quality and are so lovely and cosy – We have a green set too, you might have recently seen them in our New Bathroom Tour!
With our baby due on 20th Feb, Valentines Day is the perfect last moment for us to reflect on life as a couple before we expand into a little family. To remember all of our favourite moments in 2016, I put together this sweet Favourite Memories Box (£22.00) from Love Give Ink for Vee. It has 4 photo memories and 8 sealed notecards, you can completely personalise every last detail, making this a really lovely keepsake gift and something a bit different.
Hope this list has given you a little inspiration for a gift for your loved one this year! Have a fabulous day, whether you are staying in or going out – I hope you are spoiled or pampered and treated like a King or Queen. Happy Valentines Day!

Those faux lillies are beautiful! They’re definitely going on my list!
I absolutely love those lillies, such a good idea, and they look so realistic! Also loving the favourite memories box, so sentimental and a lovely keepsake!
I love all the silliness of Valentines Day I have to admit. Luckily my husband is also mushy so it works. I bet you can’t wait to become a family of three. Elinor x
I love all these gifts, they’re so thoughtful and super pretty! J and I don’t really do Valentine’s. We generally buy each other a box of chocolates 🙂 x
