Regular readers of my blog will know that I heart Baylis and Harding goodies. Their pretty-in-pink goodies for Valentine’s are the perfect pressie choice for any discerning sweetheart. Or simply ideal treats to give yourself a lift (after all, who needs a man to buy these?)
My favourite is the pale pink heart box (much like a 1950s chocolate box). Inside is a Balancing Shower Creme and matching Body Lotion both scented with Pink Magnolia and Pear Blossom (£10, www.ocado.com). It’s a sweet, spring-like fragrance that gently lingers on the skin throughout the day.
Also in the collection is the weighty Triple Wick Candle, scented with the same notes of pink magnolia and pear blossom. It comes in a heavy glass jar and is perfect for creating that elusive romantic ambiance (£15, www.debenhams.com).
Lastly is the bumper Baylis & Harding Pink Magnolia & Pear Blossom Five Piece Gift Set.
Channelling notes of spring, the set contains a Hand & Body Lotion, Shower Creme, Soap, Body Wash and rose shaped Body Polisher. The products are beautifully packaged in a dusty pink and white colourway and the formulas are rich, pampering and lush, leaving skin gently fragranced and soft to touch. (£20, www.houseoffraser.co.uk). Just the thing for a love fest – even if you are home alone.
These are perfect gifts from a loved one or ideal as a little indulgence from you to you. Love yourself, why not? Heart Valentine’s.
