Love it or loathe it, Valentine's Day is something you can't quite escape from with romantic gifts in every shop corner, so it's time to embrace the romantic day for all that it stands for; love.
We believe the relationship you should nurture the most, is the one that you have with yourself and we're encouraging everyone to give themselves that little bit of self-love this Valentine's Day that you completely and utterly deserve.
And to celebrate you in the most fabulous way, we have rounded up some of our favourite gifts to treat ya self this Valentine's Day.
If there's one way to love yourself right, it's through a delicate skincare regime. We'd recommend this kit from Neal's Yard which offers and introduction to their beautiful Rehydrating Rose skincare range, perfect for normal skin times. Utilising the essence of damask rose to provide beautiful, nourished skin in a ready-to-go skincare ritual.
Award-winning Author and Journalist Elizabeth Day has been encouraging us all to embrace our failures in life. Through her weekly podcast she invites guests to celebrate the things that haven’t gone right and inspires us all with her mantra that "understanding why we fail ultimately makes us stronger, because learning how to fail in life, actual means, learning how to succeed." With chapters spanning from friendship to dating, to sport and babies, she offers a cathartic insight into the struggles of life and walks us through the impossibility of a flawless world to find a place where failure is our strength. A recommended read to get your bounce back and give you that inspiring lift that we sometimes all need.
Despite their beauty, houseplants also come with an array of health benefits mentally and physically, which is why they are a great gift to yourself this Valentine's Day. Our String of Hearts is on trend and a super cute houseplant to enjoy. If it's heart shaped leaves aren';t enough to persuade you, perhaps some of the scientific benefits of houseplants can:
Boost mood, productivity, concentration and creativity
Reduce stress, fatigue, sore throats and colds
Clean indoor air by absorbing toxins, increasing humidity and producing oxygen
We love nothing more than coming home and unwinding with our favourite drink. Whether it's a cosy hot chocolate or a refreshing gin, whatever we're drinking, it's important to do it in style. Here at wild about flowers we are favourable of a gin tipple and these pink gin glasses from Oliver Bonas feature hand-etched and gold-foiled decoration. Perfect to enjoy a G&T!
This powerful little candle has been blended with pure essential oils and is intended for meditation, yoga, before sleep or when you need to settle your mind. Eucalyptus is uplifting, cleansing and fresh whilst the floral notes of Lavender softens this scent and provides a sense of calm. Frankincense provides a resinous base note that's grounding and earthy. The overall scent is comforting, pure and luxurious.
We are told we'll spend an average of 26 years of our life sleeping and almost 7 years trying to get to sleep. Sleep is something that is so important for our bodies and gives us that vital time to relax and recharge. When dedicating so much time in our lives to getting some shut eye, it more than helps when you can be comfortable and we believe sometimes there's truly nothing better than snuggling in some beautiful pyjamas. This beautiful, heavenly satin set from The White Company oozes luxury and is the perfect indulgent gift.
If you're anything like us, you can't go anywhere without one these days for those all important spontaneous shopping trips. Tote bags have become not just a great way to be sustainable and kind to the planet, but also a stylish way to shop too. We love this design from Rock on Ruby which is made from organic cotton for a durable carrier.
A cup of perfect balance to restore body and soul with a combination of flavours that are kind to the body. Made with organic and delicious ruby-red cranberry, the tender press of rose, softness of shatavari and dappled with vanilla sweetness. This tea from Pukka Herbs is naturally caffeine free and ethically sourced, with 100% organically grown ingredients.
A journal can have many positive uses, from writing daily lists to keeping a note of things to do or read. We're huge fans of journals here and have one for almost anything. We also think it makes a little difference when your journal looks the part too. This copper embossed notebook from Christian Lacroix is a favourite choice of ours. With 152 lined pages and A6 in size for easy transportation it's great for keeping a note of those all important notes that help you do you!
A hot soak in the bath is the perfect activity to include in your self-care regime. With a combination of ingredients in this bath bar, the lemon, rose and geranium oil will help perk you up, while Fair Trade cocoa and shea butter leave you feeling gorgeous. The rose oil helps to clear your mind and boost your mood.
