Meadow Playsuit, £325 from Needle & Thread
While some people view Valentine’s Day as a commercial con, we view it as the perfect excuse for some pretty presents. So (naturally) we’ve drawn up a list of gorgeous gifts that we girls here at Brides Up North HQ would love to receive come February 14th.
Anyhow, a girl can dream – and we feel that if a Valentine’s present drought or disaster does occur, then we’re 100% justified in going out and buying one of these fabulous treats for ourselves (just maybe not the ring!)…
Poppy Print Waisted Dress, £46, from Warehouse – whether dining in or out this Valentine’s, every girl needs a pretty new dress for the occasion.
Hey Girl Bow Point Courts, £72, from Office – We are totally crushing on Office’s latest collection of heels and this swoon-worthy pair makes the perfect pressie, all wrapped up with a bow on top!
Lulu Guinness Glitter Perspex Lips Clutch Bag, £245, from House of Fraser – For an ultimate statement clutch it has be Lulu Guinness and it doesn’t get much more on point for Valentine’s than this swish, shiny number.
Pink Satin Kimono, £45, from Victoria’s Secret – With warmer weather on the way soon (we hope!) a lighter type of cover-up is required for those ‘getting ready’ moments – this cute kimono certainly gets our vote!
Rosie for Autograph Silk and Lace Bra, £26, and knickers, £12.50, from Marks & Spencer – lingerie may be a predictable gift at this time of year, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Turn things up a gear with this racy red set from our major girl-crush Rosie.
Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum 100ml, £96, from Boots – Full bodied and opulent with addictive floral notes we think this is the scent of pure romance .
Milano Mozart Ladder Detail Jumper, £65, from French Connection – As it’s not mild enough to ditch the jumpers altogether, we like the idea of this peak-a-boo, cut-out detailing, revealing just the right amount of skin.
Dior Addict Lip Glow, £24, from feelunique.com – As we prepare to pucker up for some extra kisses on February 14th, a gorgeous lip-colour with staying power, such as this fabulous product from Dior, would be greatly received.
Rose Embroidered Mom Jeans, from Topshop, £59 – We’re all for a big Valentine’s bouquet, but this type of flowers will last much longer than a dozen real red roses.
Tiffany Legacy Engagement Ring, starting at £12,400 from Tiffany & Co – because diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right?!
