February Birthdays & A Flash Giveaway!


So far, I've talked about unconventional Valentine's Day gifts and the perfect traditional Valentine's Day bouquet, so today I'm mixing it up even more and combining a thoughtful Valentine's Day-type gift with a birthday gift. We've all got those friends who decided to be born in February, right after Christmas and right around Valentine's Day, meaning they can be incredibly hard to buy for. There hasn't been enough time for them to refresh their wishlists after their Christmas presents and to make it harder for us buyers, the focus is around thoughtfulness thanks to Valentine's Day falling smack bang in the middle of February. My friend Jess is one of these February people and as it's her birthday today (Happy birthday Jess!) I thought I'd show you the pressies that I got her, suitable as a Valentine's gift for a close friend or a partner, or as a February birthday present.

First up, we've got some beautiful flowers from Blossoming Gifts. Like I've said in previous posts, I'm more of a fan of the unconventional flowers and Blossoming Gifts have a really amazing range of alternative Valentine's Day bouquets that are a bit different than the traditional roses, meaning that they're perfect for a friend or the less romantic type people, but are no less beautiful. This beautiful "Pink Bunting" bouquet, features oriental lilies, a handful of roses and carnations. It's an alternative bunch of flowers that are just as beautiful as the traditional Valentine's Day bouquets!

I've spoken about my own travel journal on this blog before and I absolutely love it so I decided to get Jess her own personalised travel journal for all of her travel memories. This one is from Not On The High Street and has pages to write down where you went and what you did, blank pages to stick photos in and cardboard pockets to store all of those tickets and keepsakes. It's a lovely little idea perfect for a Valentine's Day present or a birthday gift, especially for those who are well travelled. PJs are another failsafe, especially when they're from somewhere as great as Boux Avenue. They are definitely my go-to for underwear and nightwear gifts, whether they're for me or for someone else!

Get 33% off a bouquet at Blossoming Gifts with the code BGIFTS33. You can order bouquets to actually be delivered on Valentine's Day and as it's looming ever closer you better get a move on!

  2. I think flowers are perfect gifts for both birthdays and Valentine's day! My boyfriend got me a bouquet of my favorite roses on my birthday but they died...Ah, well. It's the thought that counts! Haha <3
