stuff girls like

so v-day is less than three weeks away, and, unfortunately for me, my present and evening have all been planned and it's all one big sodding surprise (anxiety has already set in). in case the chap is trying to double bluff me and he hasn't done anything, i have accumulated a pretty banging list of perfect valentine's day presents. i've recently started to like the idea of jewellery again (i know! who knew!) and because i can't afford it, i'm hoping the chap uses this post as a reference for all upcoming occasions (i joke) (i don't). if you are a boyf and completely forgot that the special v-day is arriving, have a snoop through my guide of wonderful gifts that would make girls happy and not be in a strop with you (all links and deets are below the images because i'm helpful like that, and i've tried to put them in to some sort of order so it doesn't overwhelm you and blow your mind).

/ pretty sure i'll have to buy this for myself.

/ these ring are super cute. you can stack them up and have the initials of whoever you think is sexy, kim k style. or you could spell out love. cos that is nice.

/ these nugget bracelets are yummy, i want one (again, i'm sure i'll just have to buy it for myself). personally i like the labradorite stone, but you can get a green onyx or moonstone if that is what you're into. 

/ i love dogeared stuff. their red string bracelets are yummy, but i think for v-day you'd probs want something that lasts a little longer (the bracelets are intended to fall off naturally and your wish comes true. it's all very sweet). the red string 'make a wish' bracelets would make a good 'i am very sorry for being utterly useless' kind of present. the first one is more romantic, the second one is just one that i would like. 

/ i mean if you want to say you like someone, love even, what better way to say than with leather goods. obviously first choice would be the celiné boston, but seeing as that is virtually impossible to get hold of, let alone even look at, givenchy's antigona bag is a good runner up. personally i'd get the black grainy leather as it is less likely to scratch and get damaged, but if she's like an actual proper lady then you should probs get the smooth leather. i'm going to put it out there - you get this, i guarantee she won't be mean to you for a while (timing dependant on meanness of gf).  

/ the beauty of these animal onesies, is that they're fun and sexy at the same time. and what is even more beautiful, is that you can get one too and when you're having a good old snuggle, you can snuggle in these together (for more of a selection, click here. i think the dinosaur or the giraffe make good boy ones). these two are my personal faves. i'm genuinely not taking the piss, girls love this shiz. for me, the weirder/funner the present is, the happier i am (the chap bought me a plastic toy hippo - i was more overwhelmed with gratitude towards that hippo than i was when i got taken to zuma for dinner). me and my chums would have a party wearing these and would think it is the best day of our lives. 

/ lastly, bake her some cookies. not as the main present, as a starter. make sure they're super gooey and yummy then bam this stamp into them and you look like you're loving and thoughtful. boom. 

(i love you cookie stamper via suck uk. don't worry, there's a recipe on there before you start hyperventilating.)

ok chaps, get back to work and earn some moola to buy her something amaze.
