There’s nothing like a soothing bath to unwind after the end of a long day, and LUSH Cosmetics have you covered when it comes to all things bath bubbly! From bubble bars to bath-bombs, the super cute Valentine’s day products will add a bit of fun to your regular relaxing routine. We love the bright red ‘Heart Throb Bubbleroon‘ with glittery gold in the middle which smells sweet and makes a bath very soothing. The shea butter is perfect for keeping skin soft and of course, we’re huge fans of the natural ingredients and safe synthetics that are used!

8. Jo Malone Struck By Love
If you’re stuck for what to get as a gift, then perfume is a fail safe option. Who doesn’t love a brand new bottle of the sweet smelling stuff? Personally, we’re tempted to try the new ‘Struck By Love’ Red Roses range from the exquisite Jo Malone. With notes of rose (of course!), violet leaves and a hint of lemon, this is the ideal scent for the celebrating Valentines day, and is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Grab a 100ml of cologne for $1,120, or stick to a 60g travel candle for just $345 with the same soft scent… or take a look at the whole The Red Roses collection and choose whatever you fancy!
