Something Different for your Special Valentine

Do you get stuck in a rut, thinking of something different to buy or treat your Valentine to.   Here is a guide to some gifts with a difference.  

Flowers by Appleyard London,  Hip Flask by Zippo, Non alcoholic wines by Botonique,  Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur and Personalised phone case by Tirita. 

Appleyard  London 

This stunning bouquet comes from Appleyard London.   Arriving in a sturdy box, once you open up the first thing that hits you is the amazing aroma of the gorgeous blooms contained there in.  

Stunning Fragrant Blooms 

The bouquet shown is called Goddess.   Containing Red Grand Prix roses, soft pink sweet avalanche roses, eustomas adom and fragrant freesias, the flowers arrive mid bloom.  

Once placed in a vase and the stems cut as advised, within 24 hours the blooms start to open and the full aroma comes out.   

Who would not love to receive these as a gift from their special person.  They are absolutely stunning.

I wanted to share with you a product from the iconic, American brand Zippo. Although famous worldwide for its iconic windproof lighter, Zippo’s product range extends to quality outdoor accessories and a range of men’s leather goods.

As well as the  hip flask, that I am reviewing, there are wallets and hand warmers as well as lighters in a variety of designs. Perfect for gifting that special someone this Valentine’s Day. For a more sentimental touch, the lighters can be engraved with personal text or initials, creating the perfect keepsake.

Zippo Hip Flask 

This 3oz Hip Flask is an ideal gift for him or her.  Ideal handbag size or pocket size.   Made from stainless steel, this hip flask would be a great Valentine’s gift.  It has a secure lid and is slightly curved for comfortable carrying.  To make it even more special, this item can be engraved and personalised.  

I absolutely love mine.   It will come in handy when I go out on shoots or on occasions where it may be needed.

Botonique Non AlcoholicWines in Blush and White 

When I open the box to take out the samples of Botonique I had been sent, the first thing that caught my eye was the gorgeous bottles.  A real eye catcher to have on any table.   

What an ideal gift to give to someone for a Valentine gift. 

Botonique  is an unique British-made natural, dry, sparkling non-alcoholic drink alternative for lovers of wine and other sophisticated forms of alcohol.

In addition, it contains the beneficial elements of Prelixir®, a unique blend of vitamins, minerals and amino acids which alcohol is known to deplete. This unique element means that Botonique is able to provide anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, alkalising, detoxifying and hydrating benefits. 

I sampled both the Blush and White wines and they are delicious.  An ideal compliment to any meal and a super gift to give to anyone.

Chambord Black Raspberry Liquer

Chambord’s limited edition 20cl bottle, which comes packaged in a sumptuous purple and raspberry box, makes the perfect gift to transform everyday drinks into something more memorable, any day of the week. Who would be disappointed with that!    Also ideal to drink with a sweet pudding or even use if you decide to make a Raspberry cheesecake. 

Whoever you’re sharing this Valentine’s Day with, be it a loved one, your mates or some catch-up TV, enjoy it together with Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur.

You could choose the same old fizz… but why not mix things up with a Chambord Royale instead! Your favourite bubbles, be they prosecco, champagne or cava, topped with Chambord and a fresh raspberry. It couldn’t be simpler to make things a little fancier.

Gin is well and truly in,but forget the usual G&T! Try a Chambord Collins, a fruity mix of Chambord and gin, with a refreshing splash of lemon juice and soda water.    This is a definite yes for me. 

I love Chambord and would recommend you try.  It is an ideal gift to give to someone special as a Valentine.  

This limited edition gift box is available from most major supermarkets at a price of £8.00


Tirita Phone Cases

Nothing nicer than receiving something personalised for Valentine’s Day.   In the modern age phones are so important to daily life and Tirita have the ideal gift you can buy.  

Get a name put onto one of their gorgeous cases.   Lots of glittery, marbled, intricate designs to choose from and a lot of choices of phones they are made for.  

I had this made for our daughter and she loves it.   So nice to choose and make something so personal.   This one was £9.99 and extremely sturdy.

Hope you all have a super Valentine’s day and evening. 

I received samples of all products and any opinions are 100% my own.
