Valentines Gift Ideas with The Works #WIN

I dedicated an entire crafty post at Christmas-time to The Works thanks to their innovative and incredibly cost effective ideas. 

Well, just because Christmas has been and gone, it doesn't mean that Valentine's season is any different. Yes, there is lots of inspiration over on their site for Valentine's Day this year and I've picked out my faves...

I've been having the best time over the past week filling in this "It's All About You" book ready to gift to my husband. It's a 110 page hardback book with pre-printed pages revolving around things like 'our first date' and your partner's 'firsts'. 

I tell you what, it's made me realise how much I do know about him, and also throws up things I didn't know, or didn't even think to ask. This will spark brand new conversation between us - even after having been together for 8 years! 

What a fantastic idea it is, and at only £2 you just cannot go wrong. You couldn't make your own at a more cost effective price, nor would you think of so many different 'chapters' - trust me, there's so much you've probably never even talked about. Awww, imagine the grandchildren in years to come getting to read this? GET ONE!!

If you have your very own Superhero-mad  Man Of Steel at home, the Superman book to accompany the movie is spot on. A very heavy hardback book, measuring a mighty 28.5 x 24 x 2.2cm, usually retails at £29.99 is now only £6.99.

If it's not up your partner's street, why not put one aside for a loved one at Christmas whilst you can at such a good price?

For the inked up lover, why not present them with a collectable item that can also produce endless hours of fun and games? This Tattoo Playing Card Game Set is £4.99 and comes complete with 2 packs of cards, 5 dice and a card game book, nicely contained in a presentation tin for safe keeping and show-off-ability!

I love the colourful design that runs through the contents and it doesn't look cheap. It's just perfect for male or female recipients and for any occasion whatsoever. 

Valentine's Day neeeeeeds Love Hearts. Pick up this cute, limited edition, heart shaped tin bursting with mini yumminess for just £1.99! Keep the tin thereafter for love notes and other such smush!

If you're anything like me, I like to opt for useful and humorous gifts when it comes to the hubby. I laughed my socks off when I saw that The Works sell a mini handheld drill. We don't own any power tools and that's the excuse I always get when it comes to something being done - pictures mounted on the wall etc.

Well I'm sure he would just love this - how handy, hey?! Only £4.99 this is a genuinely practical as well as a sincerely thoughtful gift for your loved one this Valentine's Day.

Reflexology is one of those therapies that I would love to master. There is nothing like a good massage and what better idea than to learn how to do it for your loved one? 

This brilliant boxed gift set comprises a hardback book for beginners and an 80 minute DVD to boot. Incredibly, you can pick this up for less than a fiver at The Works. Perhaps you could make a night of it and learn together? N'awww, romantic!

adore storage solutions (am I sad?), so this next beautifully stunning piece is exactly what I would choose for my own dressing table, as I'm sure many other's would wish for too. That's why it's in my faves list as a gift idea... 

A wooden decorative box with 6 compartments to store your trinkets and treasures in securely with the addition of the metal clasp. It's versatile in that it can sit as pictured above, or stand as pictured below (with some nail varnishes in as an example)

This box is only £4.99 as a single or you can buy a set of 2 for £7.99

Dating Slick Rick or Dapper Dave? How about opting for something pretty swish like this stainless steel decorative hip flask complete with a 64 page book where you can discover the history of whisky, how it's made and where to find the best whiskies.

There is also an extensive guide to well-known whiskies and some less common brands to expand your taste horizons. At only £4.99, it's a pocket money purchase that packs a 'whisky-based' punch!

We all know that 50 Shades of Grey is about to explode onto our screens (crikey! no pun intended!) so pick up the trilogy to get an idea before you go to see it in the cinema surrounded by strangers... it could be a little, um, awkward if you don't know what you're walking in to! 

The rrp is £23.97 but The Works have it on offer for just £12.99 right now so be quick, QUICK.

I've teamed up with the lovely guys over at The Works to give away one such trilogy to one of you lucky devils. Just enter via the rafflecopter widget below. Good Luck!!
