An Alternative Valentine's Gift Guide.

After 7 years together myself and the hubby don't really celebrate Valentine's Day. This year is going to be a little different as we will be in New York for Valentine's and I absolutely cannot wait. I know Americans take 14th February a little more seriously than us Brits so it will be nice to see how things work across the pond. 

For those wanting a some V-day inspiration that's little different from those cheesy, romantic gifts, I thought I'd get together a few ideas, with a little help from the lovely people at Amara*. 

If you or your partner are anything like me, you will change your phone case like the weather. I think this pretty floral phone case is the perfect present for anyone that permanently had their phone attached to their hand. 

Next up something a little more personal. I adore this mug and it's even more special as it has my initial on. I love the hand-made feel to this and is the ideal present for tea and coffee lovers!

This next present idea is actually something I popped in as a treat for my other half. As I've mentioned we will be in NYC in a few weeks, I thought this scratch off map was the perfect way to tick off all our sight seeing. Plus it's something fun to look back on when we get home. 

Finally a little something for the home. This gorgeous copper lantern is so pretty and filled with a tea light is just so lovely. This is just something practical but a super thoughtful gift! 

Do you celebrate Valentine's day?

    Have an amazing time in New York!!
