Choose the perfect Valentine's Day treats for your partner based on her personality type and passions. Find out what her favourite activities are and look to surprise her this February!
Do you remember how you have celebrated last Valentine's Day? Well, little did we know at the time that it was going to be four weeks from national lockdown and working from the sofa—no more dinner dates at restaurants or travelling.
As Valentine's Day is just around the corner, it is the perfect time to have a fresh look at how to spoil your love. In the absence of romantic surprise trips to Paris and fancy restaurant meals with live music, I believe the best presents are kindness and making one feel extraordinary. Also, I think there is nothing more romantic than choosing a gift based on her personality and passions.
The best way to shop is to consider her hobbies and passions.
If she likes working out and considers exercising a fun way to pass the time, she is the active type. It doesn't matter what exercises she does, from running to Pilates, as long as she is consistently working out. You will need to dig a little for this type of woman to get her something in the sports accessories department or activewear. She probably has most of the gear and equipment already.
If she works out consistently, then for sure she will appreciate a massage on Valentine's Day. Make the moment special by adding some natural products as a present which you will use to release any tension in her body. Such a treat will be appreciated not only on Valentine's Day, but the products will level up her body care routine.
A great massage oil is the Green Angel Seaweed and Argan, which hydrates and tones the skin making it radiant. Combine the treat with a Luxurious Green Angel Sunrise Magic body polisher in rich gold tones that she can elevate her bathing rituals after her sweaty workouts. The Sunrise Magic smoother combines pure organic essential oils of Grapefruit and Lemon and will enhance the skin's elasticity and smoothness.
The jewellery collector is the most precious type of women to shop for and to impress on Valentine's Day. Check her wish-list if you can and gift her a piece of jewellery that you know she has been eyeing up lately. Accessories are still being worn daily even under lockdown and make any outfit look put together for the conference calls. More than ever, hair accessories have been stealing the show in the past year: from scarfs to bejewelled hairpins.
If you want to gift something different, choose a present to show you understand her jewellery passion and look beyond the obvious gifts. One can give something complimentary to her already extensive collection, such as a jewellery box or jewellery drawer organiser. These are much-appreciated gifts and will make her very happy to have a way to display her beautiful collection and be inspired every time she will choose a piece to wear.
If she is a ring or bracelet fan, you can also upgrade her hand care routine and make it a luxurious experience. The Green Angel Precious Oils Collection gift box has a selection of hand creams neroli, jasmine, ylang-ylang will pair beautifully with the Green Angel Sunset Heaven Smoother to enhance the elasticity and smoothness of the skin.
Her rituals and having luxurious products to treat herself every day are essential needs to her. Her body is a temple and taking care of it is her religion. From the moment she wakes up, she will start her little rituals with her skincare routine in her silk or cashmere robe while having a cup of delightful and exotic coffee or tea. She will begin her day but pause to do a yoga session or a stretching routine. She will start her evening ritual early, and she always chooses her perfume based on her mood.
The sky is the limit when shopping for the self-care queen: from silk fabrics to the fabulous home-spa experiences, one is blessed to be able to choose from a wide range of products. Escape the routine and treat her for a spa-like experience this Valentine's Day.
Elevate her at-home beauty rituals with a gift set containing the Green Angel Collagen day cream and Seaweed Night Cream with 6 Essential Oils. The face cream with Botanical collagen may improve fine lines and wrinkles by providing an antioxidant boost that supports new skin cells' healthy growth. The night cream has a rich, blissful blend of calming and moisturising juniper, neroli and lavender and will help deeply nourish the skin while she sleeps.
She loves her home, and she is passionate about every corner's identity and style. She has curated the furniture, the art and the ambience to match her lifestyle. For this type of girl, bring the biggest flowers bouquet, and she will happily display it on her coffee table for the next week. Choose flowers that do not wither quickly or that have some sponge-cushion with some nutrients to make them last longer.
Indulge her senses with some ylang-ylang products for her home such as the Green Angel ylang-ylang candle and matching Green Angel reed diffuser. The Green Angel candle has an incredible sensual floral scent that will take luxury to a new level. The combination of flickering light and mood-boosting fragrance will create the perfect romantic atmosphere for your Valentine's date night.
Ylang-ylang has a fruity floral smell and is one of the ingredients of the famous luxury perfume Chanel No.5. If you want to spoil your partner, indulge and gift her an extravagant fragrance with ylang-ylang tones. She will feel the harmony between her new perfume and home scent, creating the impression of her house as an extension of herself.
The businesswoman will always be awake first with a big cup of tea or coffee and the planner in her hand. She will be scribbling ideas, notes and check the day's schedule before her actual work begins. She surrounds herself with to-do lists and her notebook is an essential tool in her day-to-day activities.
For Valentine's Day, gift her a Recycled leather notebook for scribbles, to-do lists and daily notes. It is a gift for her and the planet, as the notebooks have been ethically produced in Bristol, UK. The Recycled leather notebooks are available in various colours to match her style and have subtly debossed the message "make a mark" on the front cover.
Late nights and early morning are inevitable, and you can gift indulgent coffee beans to spice up her mornings. And for Valentine's date night, learn to make Espresso Martinis for a great surprise! All you need is some cold sugar syrup, vodka, ice, coffee liqueur, a cocktail shaker and of course espresso.
