Valentines Gift Guide

Anyone that knows me knows I really like Valentines Day. I'm sorry, ok!  For me it's nice to have something positive to celebrate after a dull January - and January's are always dull. Yes, we should appreciate our loved ones every day of the year but it's good to have a kick up the bum to remind us to make time for a little treat. Especially since being a busy working Mum, I need this and I like having something to look forward to, something to give me a moment to be 'me' and not just 'mummy' - we all need a much needed moment for ourselves from time to time. It's not about the gifts, it's about the time spent together, but some times a treat can put a big smile on someone's face - I'm happy if somebody buys me a Cream Egg!


While you just can't go wrong with flowers (Aldi ones are mega cheap and really lovely by the way!) I have a few lovely pieces from UK Lingerie to show you that would make an amazing Valentines treat to someone (or yourself!).

UK lingerie is the place to head to for great lingerie, loungewear, nightwear and robes. They've got a wide selection of brands to suit all price ranges too. 

So here are a few bits that I think would make excellent gifts for any occasion - but as Valentine's is coming up, it's the perfect excuse to pick something up.

A night in on the sofa watching a film is one of my favourite kind of dates. When it's cold outside it's lovely to get all cosy and spend some time together. These silky pyjamas  make me feel like a Kardashian and they are so soft! The elasticated waist makes them really comfortable and the button front gives them a classic, stylish feel. I am actually tempted to wear these out!


chemise  is a great alternative to silky pj's if you want something a little special. It's perfect 'night away ordering room service' attire. A chemise is great to wear under a dress as a slip too. This one has soft lace cups with a matching lace trim and it's really stretchy and comfortable.


The new 50 Shades film is out this month so if it's inspired you to get a little adventurous this seductive eye mask might be a good first step. The cat flick is really flattering and I'm always a fan of a bit of sparkle so I love the detail on the front.


It wouldn't be a Valentines gift guide without suggesting a lingerie set. When we think 'sexy lingerie' we get visions of red and lace but if that's not your thing you can opt for something a little more subtle. This bra (£26) from Pour Moi is something that can be worn day to day. Is it just me that feels really put together if I've got a nice underwear set on? Even though nobody else knows it's nice for me! The little vine leaf pattern highlights the curve of the cup and the pale pink is really pretty contrast against the black. It also has removable straps so it's a versatile one too! There's a matching thong (£14) and if you want the full set throw in the suspenders too. These have a cute bow and diamante details which look really lovely. 


Are you a matching lingerie fan or do you favour a night in your pjs? In my eyes both are equally attractive, just in different ways. Let me know your Valentines Day plans!
