Valentine's Day is fast approaching. Get ready for public displays of affection, heaps of heart-shaped everythings, bouquets of flowers and boxes of chocolates. Though you may not be overjoyed by the impending love-filled occasion, you don't have to quash the festivities altogether... We're talking a well-deserved spot of self-love in the form of shopping - for ourselves. Because why not? We've put together a wishlist of things we actually want this Valentine's Day (flowers and chocolates aside). From us to us.
Christian Louboutin Lip Colour in Velvet Matte
It's no secret that when you're feeling a little deflated, a beauty purchase can perk you up. Treating yourself to makeup is therapeutic, especially when it's as luxurious as this Rouge Louboutin lipstick. The Velvet Matte shade is romantic and the regal casing is heavenly - it would look great on your lips and in your makeup bag.
£65 from christianlouboutin.com
Coach Envelope Card Case
We love everything from Coach, and this pink coin purse is next on our wishlist. It's the perfect size to hold all the cards you need, as well as some change for coffee, and still fit in your clutch or cross-body bag. For those city-goers who are looking to revamp their accessory collection, this is where to begin.
£60 from coach.com
Olivia von Halle Daria Topaz Silk Shirt and Wide Leg Trouser Set
There is little more satisfying than climbing into a freshly-made bed dressed in luxury silk pyjamas, and this Olivia von Halle set completes that fantasy. These pyjamas are so nice, in fact, that they can hardly be counted as loungewear. Our love for pyjama dressing in the daytime is long-lived, and these wide leg silk trousers demand that they be worn as evening-wear too - with heeled boots or mules and a long coat. So really it's a 2-in-1 purchase (as if we need justification to buy it).
Silk Pyjama Set, £365 from Olivia von Halle
Liz Earle Botanical Fragrance No.20 Eau de Parfum
Calling spring in early, award-winning beauty favourite Liz Earle has encapsulated the romantic essence of the Damask rose in full bloom for their latest fragrance. To celebrate the brand's 20th anniversary it has collaborated with Grasse-based perfumer Domitille Bertier to create the Botanical Essence No.20 Eau de Parfum. If you're coveting a fresh and feminine scent (and, like us, you're done with winter) then you'll love this.
£49 from lizearle.com

Coconut Milk EOS Lip Balm, £6.50 from ASOS
Keep your lips super soft and smooth with the new EOS Soft Lip collection. They contain nourishing ingredients as well as Vitamin C to encourage collagen production for a radiant pout. They are also 95 percent natural so you can't go wrong when it comes to lip care.

Who doesn't love a pamper session? This Love Soak Set is the perfect gift to yourself if you love to bathe. It contains Well-Earned Soak (filled with lavender essence) and Coconut Dreaming, which is pina colada scented. Ultimate relaxation can be reached.
Bath and Body collection from L’Artisan Parfumeur
Luxury perfumery brand L'Artisan is launching a bath and body range, featuring their best selling fragrances in lotion form. La Chasse Aux Papillon is the most romantic scent in the collection - it smells like white flowers on a sunny summer's day.
Matte For You Brush, £12.95 from KIKO Milano
KIKO Milano's Matte For You limited-edition collection is Valentine's themed. The Matte For You face brush has soft heart-shaped bristles which allow you to collect just the right amount of product for an even, smooth look.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Pop & Suki have launched heart-tags to put on your keys. They come in black and pink, and for £32 you can get them customised.
Rose De Mai Massage Candle, £36 from OSKIA
For candle obsessives (hello), this candle by OSKIA is heaven. The two-in-one soybean and coconut oil candle melts down into a body oil which you can then use to massage into the skin to nourish it.
Button-Back Bell-Sleeve Top, £65 from J.Crew
This pink bell-sleeve top from J.Crew is oh-so cute. Dress it up for the office by tucking it into a skirt, or dress it down with jeans. It also comes in a muted pale blue version.
Lips in Saint, £8 from Topshop
Add a slick of pink for your pout with Lips in Saint. Topshop's collection of lipsticks are both gorgeous and affordable, so go on, treat yourself.
Belted Flare Trousers, £69 from & Other Stories
We're loving these beige trousers from & Other Stories. The dramatic flares with a clinched-in waist makes for a sophisticated, urban outfit - the ultimate city look this season. Perfect with a tight jersey top and statement boot heels.
