You shouldn’t need Valentine’s Day to show someone how much you love them, but, then again, why not? There’s really no better day of the year to indulge someone special with a few treats. Whether it’s a partner, a friend or a relative, you can share the love around with Baylis & Harding‘s pampering (and affordable) gifts – specially curated for Valentine’s Day.
The British brand has long been my ‘go-to’ for unique gifts which show someone how much you care. This year, the pink-hued pressies are all Pink Gin Fizz themed. From the Fragranced Bath Bubbles – which come in a cute bottle like the real thing, and which promise an hour of bliss in the tub, to the Hand Wash – which leaves hands gently fragranced and velvety soft – each one looks good enough to… well, drink.
The Bathing Trio gift set, which contains Body Wash, Body Lotion and Shower Creme, is perfect for a cheeky weekend away (throw that in, too, and you’ll earn extra brownie points). In fact, why not take off to the brand’s own Fuzzy Duck Inn to really join up the dots?
The Cotswolds bolthole, owned by the brand, is, in fact, the inspiration behind the Pink Gin Fizz range. The characterful inn was refurbished in 2013 by the family behind Baylis & Harding, and echoes the brand ethos that luxury should be affordable. Each of the four bedrooms have individual, cosy designs – think roll-top baths and luxury bedlinens – with bathrooms stocked (of course) with Baylis goodies.
I love the on-trend pastel hues and pretty vibe each gift brings – enough to brighten your day and your bathroom shelves. And the Pink Gin Fizz scent is sweet and alluring – just don’t let it go to your head!
