Last year, I did a ‘Valentine’s Day Gift Inspo’ guide and I’m here to do another! The last one was based on getting lots of inspiration from the web (have you thought about checking out a gal’s Pinterest page? Chances are you will find a wish list waiting right there for you!).
This year, the guide is dedicated to small but thoughtful Valentine’s Day gifts, that can be ordered online or found easily in Irish shops. From coffee holders to pretty bras, these presents are everything from practical to things that make you go ‘awwhh’! It’s the little things that count.
Bloom Magic Flowers
As I opened up with in my last post, I honestly think that nothing can beat a fresh set of flowers. I had a gander at Bloom Magic’s website and they have so many different bouquets on offer. If you want to go that extra mile for a Valentine’s Day gift, Bloom Magic also give you the option to add on choccies, teddies and candles. Their ‘Parisian Hatbox Collection’ is literally to die for, with a range of flowers displayed in the cutest box which can be found on their site here – and the best thing is their next day delivery all over Ireland!
Nothing says I loves ya like pretty underwear. Topshop have a gorgeous intimate section which has something for everyone. From funny underwear that costs €16 for 3 pairs, to lacey sets for €30 – every price and style can be found on this section of their site.
I love love love these guys, there is always something cute and unique to find on their website. I have filled in one of these books before and there is a surprise on every page. From cute sayings to funny sentences that will make your other half laugh, reading this will be such a treat for the receiver (and the sender!). This little book is only $10/ €9, found on their site here – which is a major bargain!
Muji is filled with lots of cool bits and bobs. One of their most popular items is the mini storage units that are perfect for makeup lovers. The one pictured here is just one of many pieces from their collection, it is around €30 and can be found on their site here – or at their Dublin branch at 5 Chatham Street, Dublin 2.
A delightful Irish jewellery maker, who makes the most dainty and lovely little pieces. From wire wrapped rings to unique gem earrings – there is something for every minimalist. You can find examples of what’s on offer on the Facebook page here – or you can have something made from scratch!
If you are looking for some last minute Valentine’s Day gifts or want to get lots of little things, Primark is your go to! The Home section have gorgeous little items that would make up the cutest gift bag, with most things being a fiver or less.
This Cactus Photo Clip is €1.50 or the Pink Pom-Pom Frame at only €5 (with a (a printed picture of you both will cost you about 50c!) will be a winner. For their room, a little Flamingo Decoration (€1.50) will look funky with the White Heart Lights (€4). The cute Palm Coffee Mug (€3.50) will sort out those early mornings and a Champagne & White Rose candle (€4) will be a relaxing scent to chill out in. A winning combination of practical but sweet gifts that add up to less than €20! Primark don’t deliver, but you are never too far from one in Ireland!
