Valentines Day gifts for her that won’t be in the bin by Monday.
Girl v’s Cancer Tit-tees
Brain child of Lauren Mahon who began Girl v’s Cancer after she was told she had cancer. At the age of 31 her life was dramatically altered and she shared her cancer treatment through social media as girlv’scancer.
These t-shirts, classily called the tit-tees, were born out of Laurens desire to raise money for charities with a caner focus. They cost just £28 each, 25 per cent of the proceeds is donated between four charities – Coppafeel!, Trekstock, Future Dreams and Look Good Feel Better.
A Reusable Bottle
Yip, I’m that boring but really – getting a reusable water bottle will make you feel epic and save the planet at the same time. Plastic bottles are not sustainable and plastics particles are literally everywhere now. Still not sure – google these words – north pacific gyre.
& look how pretty they are!
This was inspired by this blog post by Meg Wiggins.
A Glossybox is a monthly subscription which gets you mini and full versions of cult make up items and of the moment treats. 5 products will be posted through your letter box and each box costs £10, and the subscriptions are available in a 3,6 or 12 month plan. They often have great little products that you woudl normally find it hard to get your hands on.
This is a thoughtful gift for any make up lovers and it is especially sweet because its always a surprise when it drops through the letter box.
Choose Love Shop
We already have the t-shirts, and the sweat shirt – and if you are buying for someone who already has everything then you might want to take a look at the Choose Love shop.
A fully functioning shop – you buy things for refugees who don’t have the luxury. Gifts range from warm socks, life jackets, family accommodations, and a hot meal. A worthy cause which as been doing an excellent job. Your purchase (and any Gift Aid contribution) will be used to fund the purchase, transport and distribution of a similar item or service at one of the 80 projects we operate in Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Serbia, Turkey and the UK. For example, if you donate £5 for meal ingredients, we can use this to provide fresh fruit, vegetables and dry food for a family in Greece via The Food Project. However, if a lot of people buy the same items in store, we will seek to even things up overall to continue to provide the full range of vital services our projects need. This means some of your donation could be used for a different item or service. Whatever happens, we promise that the full cost of your purchase will be used to fund humanitarian aid for refugees, and reach those they are intended to help within weeks.
& if you have to buy underwear –
make it Calvin Kleins
I just asked the husband if I’m allowed to mention pants on our blog – he said maybe. Soooooooo – No tacky reds, or scratchy flammable materials – with lounge wear being the new luxury it needs to be comfortable and classic. The Kardashians are currently wearing them so they must be trashy/sexy/on point. Here you go… – look how comfy they look!
Or just make pancakes (i heart pancake 4eva).
