Valentines day is fast approaching next week. Personally I really aren’t one for huge romantic gestures with roses and meals out. I’d much rather have a well thought out gift and a night in with a special meal.
As I have got older I’ve learnt to appreciate small well thought out gifts. Gifts that I have a connection with and have been picked with some thought about who I am and what I like doing; things that will cheer me up. It isn’t always to do with the cost of an item. Something costing a few pounds can often be more gratefully received than something costing much more. I really do think with age you appreciate the thought that has gone in Tina gift rather than the cost.
Firstly no gift list in my opinion can be complete without a Cath Kidston mug. How on earth can you go wrong with one of these beauties?
I also love notebooks. A5 or A6 are perfect sizes and I am constantly jotting things down and planning what I need to do for work or this blog. Right now I am loving this town house note book, this set of 3 notes books and I would love a moleskine book. This pale grey is a favourite.
I am currently carrying out some renovations at home and although some might feel something for the house isn’t a good present I’m at the stage in life if its something pretty that I like then why not? A hoover or kitchen appliance would be taking it too far but I see nothing wrong with a snuggly cushion, a tealight holder or some make up bags
Finally jewellery. Just loving this heart charms from Pandora. Currently my Pandora bracelet has a purple theme but I would love a few pink coloured charms so I can wear it with other outfits. I love the heart charm and this pretty heart spacer too.
But most of all what I would like is to spend some quiet time together. Just us with no interruptions.
What is your ideal valentines celebration like?
