Valentines 2017 On a Budget

It is that time of year again where the stores are depleted of Christmas décor, and red hearts and teddy bears flood the shelves in anticipation of Valentine’s Day. We all like to let our special someone know that we love them, and celebrating this holiday comes hand in hand with being in a relationship – but for those of us that need to watch our wallets, the anticipation for this day can be stressful. I researched the corners of the Internet to come up with handy and thoughtful ways to celebrate love, without breaking the bank.

Valentine’s Gift Ideas: Men

You may have seen my post during the week in which I shared my picks for valentine presents for the ladies in your life and I promised I would do the same for the Men as well. I have picked the best I can find and will admit openly to struggling in the past for present ideas for Bob. I have put a fair bit of effort into this and have found novelty items as well as more pricier items for those who are willing to spend more. I would if I had the money to or won the lottery (which is something I have planned for my future of course!)

Babyliss 10-in-1 grooming system//Smartphone Projector//BBQ Branding Iron//GoPro Jaws Flexi//Sony Playstation 4//Google Chromecast HD//Self Stirring Mug.

I have tried to pick something for most guys there. My boyfriend would absolutely love me to buy him a PS4 if I was willing to spend that amount of money, but at the same time, if I bought him a BBQ Branding Iron he would be thrilled. The GoPro flexi jaws would be a fab gift for anyone who has a GoPro as you can clamp it to an object like bike bars and let it film as you go.

Hopefully I have given you some great inspiration for the men in your lives. My ladies collection can be found HERE and my full collection of gifts can be found on HERE. If you have any gift posts then leave me your links and I will have a look.

Valentine’s Gift Ideas: Women

It’s Wednesday, not long to go until the weekend! Yay 😀

I thought I would create some ideas for Valentine’s gifts for your lovely lady. I will be doing a post re Male gifts in the next couple of days as well (it’s only fair eh?)

Yankee Candle Fireside Treats//Clinique Whole Lotta//L’Occitane en Proven//Le Creuset Cerise ST//Magimix Nespresso In//Benefit Smokin’ Eyes//Urban Decay Naked Basics//Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 – Redemption.

My Valentine’s gift collection can be found on HERE! and This is where you will find my Guys gift list in the next day or 2 as well. My list is compiled of mainly makeup and kitchen goodies as most women will not be able to deny that these are ideal presents. We recently got given a coffee machine by a relative so have been lucky enough to be enjoying the capsules for a while. The makeup I have featured can all be found on the links underneath the photo and where they can be bought for great value for money.

Bob and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day or haven’t really in the past. We have done the occasional meal out on the weekend to celebrate but often found its more expensive. Last year Bob gave me a card and flowers, both of which he got free from work. Some of you may think this to be cheeky but I was very proud that he hadn’t spent any money and used some initiative. I love a bargain or a freebie so I was very impressed with him.

Click the links under the picture if you are interested in finding the prices of these items and link’s for buying them as well.
