Valentine's Day Gifts We Actually Want

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.

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.

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

Anthropologie Homewear

Your environment can greatly affect your mood and happiness, so don't neglect to decorate your home. Take interior inspiration from Anthropologie - their homewear collection can bring the dullest of spaces to life. Eclectic pieces with clashing prints and bold colours will inject some joy into your surroundings, and the best thing about homewear is that it can last forever, so you won't be ridden with guilt if you ivest.
