We are just not one of those couples who celebrate Valentine's Day. I think it might be my turn to cook up a bit of a special meal and I'm sure we'll exchange cards but as far as gifts go I can only dream. Not that I'm complaining. I get spoilt at Christmas, birthdays and our anniversary so I'm happy to let Valentine's Day slip past almost unnoticed. If we were that kind of couple, here's what I'd be hoping for.
01: Candles are probably a really boring choice for a lot of people. I, on the other hand, cannot get enough and I currently have one on the go every evening at home. Lily Flame Candle, £15
02: I am the queen of list making. Seriously. It's such a running joke between me and my boyfriend that this would be the most perfect gift he could buy me.
03: These Pink Champagne Truffles (£9.75) are to die for. Taste so good.
04: I'm getting quite the collection of novelty mugs. This one (£19.95) by Emma Bridgewater is so sweet and I'd really love to drink my morning coffee from it.
05: A fancy schmancy watch. Ok, clearly this is a dreamy wish list. If you have a massive pot of money (lucky you) I think Frederique Constant watches are quite understated and cool (although really rather pricey! see here). A vintage Rolex would be nice too. I do intend to buy a watch this year (# it's on my 2013 to do list) so I'm busy investigating my options!
06: I'm such a fan of quirky and original artwork. I just wish we had more space at home as our walls are pretty much full up! Wouldn't this (£65) make the loveliest Valentine's Day gift?
p.s there's still time to make a batch of my Lazy Girl's Red Velvet Cupcakes to give to your chap tomorrow! I'm making some more this evening :)
