'The perfect Valentine's Day' - gift guide
Looking to treat yourself or someone you love this Valentine’s Day? We’ve had a think about what the perfect day looks like and have some super suggestions to get yours off to a great start, whether you’re single or not.
We love this pin badge from ChronicallyDivine on Etsy - it’s super cute and is dispatched from the UK so you won’t be waiting forever to receive it.
Another adorable Etsy buy comes from ChronicCreationsGB. This Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Zebra Awareness Bracelet is such a thoughtful and beautiful gift.
Plus, it’s from a UK shop, so you’re showing some love for sustainability, too.
If you're looking to treat yourself or someone else long-term, why not check out The Spoonie Box? These uplifting subscription boxes for people with long-term illnesses bring some sunshine into your day with thoughtful, carefully curated products.
One of life's simplest joys, in our opinion, is the humble candle. Plenty of UK independent brands are elevating theirs, creating candles that smell incredible and take you on a sensory journey, as well as helping you to relax.
Check out 'The Mini' from Sunday of London. Made from aromatherapy grade pure essential oils, this £12 candle gives you 20 hours of burn time and you can choose from a selection of scents, from 'Rooftop Garden' to 'Beyond the Pines'.
We couldn't finish this blog post without mentioning an integral part of a perfect day: comfy, snuggly clothing.
Starting with the fundamentals, we love this floral bra from Elba London. This innovative front-closure bra offers ease of dressing and has been beautifully created by Elba London owner Judith.
And finally, we obviously can't omit Kintsugi from this list. Our Farley joggers are 100% cotton, have an elasticated waistband and pockets, and are perfect for lounging around in style. The silver side panels add visual interest, proving that comfy clothing doesn't have to be dull. Bonus: they're on sale for just £18!
So, treat yourself for Valentine's Day and enjoy the day. It doesn't matter if you're coupled (or throupled) or not. V-Day can be as much about self-care and self-love as the love you have for others.
Happy Valentine's Day!
