I don’t go in for Valentine’s Day in a massive way, and I’m not overly keen on huge romantic gestures or extravagant presents, but I must admit to enjoying a little surprise gift so I decided to compile a small, budget friendly gift guide to help anyone who may be struggling for inspiration!
This gift guide is not about expensive presents, but small tokens that you can give the beauty addict in your life. So what products have caught my eye?
Soaparama soaps – Soaparama is a small Manchester based company that handcraft a range of lovely soaps, bath fizzers and candles. Their soaps are especially beautiful and their attention to detail when it comes to packaging too is second to none. Their products start at £2.50 and are available here.
Makeup Revolution I ♡ Makeup Bronzer and Blusher – This gorgeously presented triple-baked powder bronzer is just one in a larger collection of blushers and highlighters available. The bronzer performs really well and the blushers are the perfect dupe for the much more expensive TooFaced blusher. At £4.99 these are an absolute steal.
Limited Edition Carmex Lip Balm – Carmex is a household name thanks to its cult lip balm. This limited edition version priced at £3.89 is so cute. Its perfect for carrying in your handbag and keeping your lips kissably soft!
Lush Soft Coeur Massage Bar and Lonely Heart Bubble Bar – These are just two items I selected from the vast Lush range, which includes a selected of limited edition Valentine’s Day themed products. First up take a lovely indulgent soak with the lavish Lonely Heart bubble bar (£3.50), then enjoy a relaxing massage with the silky smooth Soft Coeur massage bar (£4.95).
Makeup Revolution I ♡ Makeup I Heart Passion Palette – Makeup Revolution make another appearence in my gift guide with this swoon-worthy palette. Affordable yet highly pigmented you can go wrong with one of the many palettes they sell, but this one with its heart embellishment is particularly suited to Valentine’s Day and at £7.99 won’t break the bank.
So that concludes my Valentine’s gift guide. I hope it’s given you some inspiration of how you can treat that special person in your life, even on a limited budget. Who knows you may even have some money left over for bubbly and chocolates! Hope you have a very lovely Valentine’s Day!
