This isn’t going to be a BS ‘down with Valentine’s day, I don’t need a man’ post, where I just wallow in self-pity…but rather a list of Valentines Day gift ideas to celebrate your single BFFS, your mum, sister or even yourself! (as if you need an excuse to buy yourself ‘gifts’)
While there are things I hate about Valentine’s Day, there a things I love about it too. I don’t like that every store/brand/restaurant assumes everyone is in a relationship, but I do love all the cutesy heart-shaped things and special release products that are in stores around this time! I’ve always been obsessed with heart shapes, drawing them on my notepads in school just because I like the way they look. I will always believe in romance, even if it never happens for me.
Valentines Day Gift ideas for single ladies

Glasshouse Verona- A Dozen Roses mini candle, 60g RRP$21.95- I love the smell of roses, so I knew straight away that I would love this candle! It is definitely a ‘true’ rose scent, but along with the other notes, it isn’t overbearing. It is available in the large size- 350g and mini-60g (which is surprising, LE candles hardly ever get released as minis!) The thing I love the most about Verona, is the beautiful jar that has silver cursive writing all over it!
Limited Editions Marquee Heart Light- Red from Target, RRP $40- As soon as I saw this marquee light I knew I had to get one. I have seen heart Marquee lights at a few different stores, but the Target one looked like the best quality (and was one of the cheaper ones!), Target also has other marquee lights in different shapes…star, ampersand (&) and arrow.
Beyonce Heat Wild Orchid EDP 50ml, RRP$59 from Priceline and other perfume stockists- This fragrance is gorgeous! I it is a fruity-floral scent, but without being sickly sweet. It smells fairly unique too…sometimes perfumes can smell similar to other scents. I purchased mine from Chemist Warehouse when they had a sale on, for $39.95. It’s in a pretty magenta bottle too!
FUJIFILM Instax Mini 8 Camera- Pink RRP $99- I purchased this camera early last year and I love it. It takes clear wallet sized Polaroids and has a few different settings. It comes in a few different colours too. You can now also buy a photo album to keep your prints in, from Target!
Hope you have a great Valentine’s Day, whether you are in a relationship or not!
Note: I realised that I left apostrophes out of ‘Valentine’s Day’, this was just for SEO purposes…back off grammar Nazis 😉
