According to my wonderful husband Valentine’s day shouldn’t be celebrated as it is, in his words, “commercial codswallop”, ah the old romantic 😉 “What a lucky girl you are” I hear you cry. Don’t worry, I won’t let his anti-romance snarls dampen Cupid’s day. As it looks like I will have to resort to lavishing gifts upon myself I have put together a rundown of the gifts I would most definitely love to receive. And should my super romantic husband take a peak then at least the hard work is done.
Heading up my romance-laden list is a brand that are really exciting me at the moment. Alberta Grace have made a huge impact on the jewellery scene with their range of stunningly beautiful hand made creations in pearl and semi-precious stones. On top of their delicious collection they have just released two exclusive limited edition designs especially for Valentines day, yippee!! The first is the classic Valentine Heart cluster in silver, pearl and mother of pearl. The second, the Bee Mine Necklace (heart melting at the uber cute name alone!) features the brand’s signature silver plated bee. Each design comes with a blank card so a lovely bf/husband can write a romantic message to his love. All this for £25, without doubt this is the best value gift on the whole list and will guarantee a very happy recipient!
