Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and along with (what I’m guessing) will be the majority of people out there, gift ideas baffle me.
I’m usually quite a good gift buyer, if I do say so myself. But my boyfriend is much more of an experience type of guy, who enjoys activities and plans rather than the materialistic things in life. I redeemed myself for our anniversary by arranging a Wintery trip away to Bruges (which you can read more about here), but when it comes to those occasions where you want to give a present to physically open, boy do I struggle.
Luckily, I have managed to find a suitable gift for him this year, but I’d best not reveal it as I know he reads my blog! I basically thought long and hard about his passion for the outdoors, heading out on adventures, making future plans and his love for experiences, and went along this route.
But what about gifts for all the ladies out there? What gifts are suitable fail safe’s for girls like myself, who sure love experiences, but equally favour materialistic gifts too?
For the blokes reading this – or even the girls who may want to treat themselves – I can’t rave enough about timeless jewellery. So not trend jewellery, which can last a season or two and go out of fashion. I mean those classic, forever pieces, which have sentimental meaning and lots of thought behind them.
Mococo is a jewellery retailer which stocks the most beautiful, much-loved brands. You have Chlobo, Daisy, Thomas Sabo and Swarovski all under one little retail home. I currently own this stunning Chlobo Sterling Silver Filigree Heart Pendant Necklace, and it’s truly a keepsake for me.
This gorgeous long chain necklace appears as part of Mococo’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, wrapped in the prettiest pink organza bag, and tucked away in a mini drawer type box (and super cute gift bag!).
For £90, it’s one of those pieces which I’ll wear forever, and it will never date. It’s long 65cm chain is a winner for me as I love longer length chains, and it’s pretty intricate detailed pendant is a style every woman would love.
