BELLA MECCA BLOG: Be My Valentine Gift Guide
Valentino and Valentines! My top gift picks for Valentines day that will suit all the single ladies and femmes in love.
Oh its that time of the year again. That time when you are either deliriously in love, baking heart shaped cookies (when the last thing you cooked was a lean cuisine) and leaving love letters for your boyfriend all over the house. OR like some, you want to smack those happy people in the face. If thats the case, I have compiled a lovely lust list of Valentines gifts you can give yourself. Because you deserve it. And if you do have a boyfriend? Well they always need a bit of help…subtly email the link or just be bold and leave it under his pillow I say…No seriously do. You’ll want all these things ladies!
'To all the Boys I've Loved Before' by Jenny Han
OOOOH a book of love letters! Well, sort of. This girl has written love letters to every boy she has ever crushed on and stuffed them under her bed. They get mailed to each of the boys and then…well you will have to read it to find out! A New York Times bestseller, I highly recommended it for anyone looking for a fab read on Valentines Day. You may even work up the courage to send your own love letter to someone…
BOW HEELS from Downtown Virgo
Who doesn’t love a lady in red? Dress these up with your fave frock or I like to wear these dressed down with a pair of jeans, red lip and a white tee. But if this isn’t the perfect pump for your Valentines romantic dinner I’m not sure what is. More colours available too! from Downtown Virgo online.
THE LUST LIST LOVE PRINT
Sally Spratt strikes again with this gorge ‘LOVE’ print . I’ve ordered these for my girlfriends for Valentines Day this year and inexpensively framed the print versions. Such a great gift these fashionable wall art illustrations and they’ll have them forever. They come in a beautiful A3 print that can be framed or you can purchase a pretty stack of gift cards.
MCQUEEN PINK LEOPARD PRINT CARD HOLDER
Well where else do you put all the boys calling cards? This striking little piece is such a great gift for someone you have just started seeing – not too big or flashy, but you’ll impress with McQueen! Its also great for a work bag or evening clutch for the single girl as you obviously need somewhere to put the boys business cards! A perfect way to declutter all your credit cards as well this is certainly a keeper from McQueen.
DIOR 'SO REAL' ROSE GOLD SUNGLASSES
So we all know I’m a little obsessed with Olivia Palermo…who yes. Has a pair of these. AND the perfect husband…sigh. But thats not the point many celebs and fashion editors have these perched on their face, so there really is nothing more amaze than these super cool shades from Dior. I also love love love the pink rose gold version. They are particularly pricey..but your long term girlfriend will literally cook you dinner every night for the rest of your life if she received these for Valentines Day. Just saying…
BABY ANYTHING PEARL RING
Heard of Elle Ferguson (They All Hate Us…hello!!)? Well, this range of dainty jewels is the brain child of her sister, Lucie Ferguson @babyanything. This sweet little ring will stack well with your existing pieces or just by itself. Who needs a big diamond ring when you can have this!
THEY ALL HATE US X PALM BEACH COLLECTION CANDLE
I love a scented candle more than most things in life and literally have them scattered on every possible shelf, desk, table in the house. Cult candle brand Palm Beach Collection has collaborated with Tash and Elle (yes, They All Hate Us again. Yes. LFM girls are obsessed.) on this ‘Love’ quoted candle. Burn this for your lover over dinner. Or – you know. Just buy it for yourself and add to your existing collection!?
MUD CAKE CLASS
You know what they say…the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach! Well – unfortunately any man is pretty much out of luck with me on this one. (yes. I did own restaurants. Dont hold it against me). But I just love the idea of gifting an experience – particularly one where you can learn a new skill and educate your palate at the same time. So why not consider this Mud Cake Mastery Class by The Nutty Baker in Sydney? Your lovely lady will also be served lunch and a glass of wine. But the best thing? She’ll get to bring the mudcake she made home with her and straight to you – so its the gift that keeps on giving! Yep. I got your back guys. Well – your stomachs at least.

THE DAILY EDITED CUSTOMISED LEATHER POUCH
If you are looking for something a touch more personal, that doesn’t scream – ‘move in with me’ or ‘I want you to have my babies’… Then jump onto The Daily Edited and customise this pretty pink pouch with your loved ones initials. She’ll think its thoughtful, fashionable and practical but not too full on…And if it all turns out well for you both, you’ll be gold embossed and remembered forever…!
