Valentine's Day Gift Inspiration & WIWT

With it being the 1st of February tomorrow it's time to start thinking about Valentine's Day, so today I thought I'd feature a few gift ideas, as I don't know about you but it doesn't hurt to steer our hubby's/partners in the right direction does it?!  So hubby if you're reading, yes please to any or all of the following ;-)

First off I thought I'd feature some lovely home/food inspired gifts, some of which regardless of whether it's Valentine's Day would be lovely to use any day of the week.  

In fact I can definitely vouch for the heart silicone cake mould as I got one a couple of years ago but made the mistake of just ordering the one & then when I decided I wanted a second one so it made it quicker to do a sandwich cake they were sold out & I couldn't find a heart shaped one the same size or shape.  So yup you've guessed it another one has been ordered this year pronto!

Gift Inspiration, my midlife fashion, valentines day, moet pink champagne, blossoming gifts luxury red roses bouquet, culinary concepts heart toast rack, marks and spencer box shaped chocolates, jo malone room spray, marks and spencer silicone heart cake mould, marks and spencer heart mug, heart cake slice, champagne truffles

Then for more personalised gifts you can't go wrong with jewellery, perfume, underwear or a silk nightie.  So here's some ideas for adding to your wish list.

Gift Inspiration, My Midlife Fashion, Valentines Day gift inspiration, white gold small heart earrings, swarovski crystal double heart bracelet, personalised friendship bracelet, heart compact mirror, marks and spencer by rosie floral satin pyjamas, jo malone blue agave and cacao perfume, gold plated double heart necklace, jo malone scented candle, Marks and Spencer by rosie silk and lace bra and pants, liberty beaded heart bracelet, mulberry heart keyring, ops dutch tulips nail polish, marks and spencer by rosie silk designed lace nightie, personalised double heart necklace

So ladies how do you celebrate Valentine's Day?  Do you celebrate in style, mark the occasion with cards, get spoilt with romantic gestures or simply refuse to celebrate as it's too commercialised?!  I'd love to hear.

We always mark the occasion with cards & gifts but generally opt to cook a romantic meal & celebrate at home as opposed to go out for a meal.

Anyway hopefully I've featured some gift inspiration that has got you thinking & will help your partners spoil you this Valentine's Day.  I mean it couldn't be easier, just a link & a note of size/colourway with a heading 'Yes Please For Valentines' means they've got no excuse & can't pull the old 'I forgot' number, after all, all the leg work has been done for them ;-)

Have a lovely day.
