Love is in the air, Valentine’s Day is nearly here to brighten up February! Tot up the cost of a night out, flowers and Champagne, and celebrating your love can become quite the expense. So this year, why not get your other half some beauty, it is the gift that keeps on giving, all year long.
Let’s talk fragrance. A bottle of scent lasts 12-18 months with every day use, that’s a pretty great gift. Younger girls who love fashion and celebrities will know the designer Vera Wang. Her Pink Princess fragrance comes in a heart-shaped bottle with a crown for a lid, your girlfriend will feel like Royalty (RRP €39.95, now €19.99, saving 50%). On a tighter budget? Beyonce’s Wild Orchid was €25.95, now €14.95, that’s super value for a 30ml scent.
Premium fragrances are always popular, Emporio Armani He or She 50ml Eau de Parfums come with 42% discount, instead of being €52, right now they are €29.99 each. Davidoff’s Champion Energy 50ml is hugely popular, a dumb bell bottle and a citrus, spicy scent. If your guy is sporty, or even better spicy, it costs less than €20 at just €19.99 (RRP €37.50, that’s 46% savings).
There’s lots of premium fragrances at LloydsPharmacy, including Gucci, Hugo Boss, Chloe and Marc Jacobs. And for Valentine’s Day once you pay €40 or more on a fragrance you will receive a free Fuschia make up case with 5 miniature products absolutely free – worth €19.95!
Another popular fragrance gift is one that includes a lightweight cologne along with body lotion and shower gel, especially if it’s from luxury brand, Clarins. From February 2nd at LloydsPharmacy choose from scents Eau Dynamisante, Eau Ressourcante or (my favourite) Eau Des Jardins that usually cost €61.70 when bought separately, right now they are €41.50, a saving of €20.20!
Of course, savings are great but who doesn’t love a free gift? At present, French brands La Roche Posay and NUXE both have complimentary gifts on offer in LloydsPharmacy with purchase of other products as does Kiwi skin care range, Trilogy. If your love is already a fan, head in store and get the details.
Perhaps you’re not entirely sure what to get your other half? Let the experts guide you in store. Personalising a gift or hamper is very thoughtful and appreciated. Choose the contents yourself or get advice. Makeup is a good idea, at the minute both Rimmel and NYC are on 3 for 2 at LloydsPharmacy. The two ranges are very fashion-forward and great value. Some on-trend makeup and maybe a bottle of Juicy Couture La La which was €60, and is on special at €29.99? The staff at LloydsPharmacy are only happy to help and create your perfect gift! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
