With Valentines Day just a few days away, I have put together some different gift ideas for anyone who is still struggling. Love is in the air . . . . .


For him.


How about the new BRAUN  series 7 Shaver? 


The Braun series 7 is a fantastic high performance shaver, designed to deliver better comfort as well as efficiency, this is down to its three stage cutting system and flexible head, which adapts to all of the unique contours of his face.

This new offering from BRAUN has a 30% increased shaving area, combined with 1,064 holes, 10,000 micro vibrations in every stroke and 30.000 cross cutting motions catching hairs as short as 0.05mm, this is likely to be the cleanest shave yet.



Apart from the close shave, my Husbands favourite feature about this model is Braun's patented Clean and charge system which kills 99.9% of germs while charging in the stylish looking base (pictured).

RRP £299.99 - price is at the discretion of the retailer so shop around!

If he is more of a blade Man, how about the new Gillette ProShield razor?



The Gillette ProShield introduces a new lubrication strip, situated before the blades to help protect and prevent the skin from irritation while shaving extremely closely.

The new cartridges fit all Fusion and ProGlide handles and come with a precision trimmer for accurate edging.

My Husband is a big fan of Gillette razors and has already subscribed to regular deliveries of these blades. 

He said the shave is as close as his Fusion Power blades but smoother so definitely worth changing too as his face sometimes get irritated from shaving so often.

RRP £12 from all good retailers.

For her:

Jewellery from Brilliant Inc



Brilliant Inc is a luxury jewellery boutique in Sloane Square London dealing primarily in a stunning collection of non-mined fine diamonds. 



This non mined diamond tennis bracelet is set with 48, 4mm round stones, in a four prong sterling silver setting. With a beautiful fluidity, this 7 inch bracelet is very comfortable to wear and is definitely an eye catcher - even from across the room.



For safety reasons it has been finished off with a double security clasp, which clips closed and is then reinforced by clicking two small arms into place over the lock, helping prevent it accidentally opening. 

Always design led, you can be assured that each simulated stone is carefully chosen, before being hand set by master jeweller craftsmen in solid gold or sterling silver.

The finished designs are presented beautifully in a luxurious box, complete with velvet pillow and finished with a lovely sleeve and satin bow.

Brilliant Inc offer a complementary clean, so if you are popping in store, be sure to take your previous buys with you!

Why not pop over to www.brilliantinc.co.uk for a look at the full range?

Priced at £245 for 10ct (image shown) or £295 for 27ct.

Fresh cut roses Yankee candle.


Instead of a bunch of roses that will last a few days, how about a Fresh cut roses Yankee candle?

I absolutely adore this scent, it smells so fresh and not at all overpowering like some floral candles. It literally smells like a fresh bunch of beautiful flowers all through the downstairs of my house. 

I would be thrilled to receive another one on Valentines Day! 

Burning for between 110 and 150 hours, it will definitely last a lot longer than real roses!

Priced at £21.99 for a large.

To enjoy together


Ned Pinot Rosé Wine.



The Ned Pinot Rosé is a new launch from Marisco Vineyards in New Zealand and is the perfect Valentine’s day wine.

Personally I am very with rosé as I really dislike any sweetness, so if like me you enjoy a lovely dry rosé then I highly recommend this bottle.

Creamy and delicious, with a classic bouquet of red berries and hints of rose, this delicious rosé will be an ideal aperitif or a great companion to our Valentine dinner!

The ABV for this wine is 13.0, the bottle contains 9.8 units and has a screw cap should you have any left over.

Priced at £10.65

This gorgeous piece of furniture has real character and is also very useful.

Made from various shades of brown distressed faux leather, it is completely wipeable - which is a big plus when you have a 4 yer old who has really taken a shine to it!

What a perfect way to spend an evening together, and we may even learn a thing or two in the process.
