First and foremost, I’d like to welcome you back to the second part of my Valentine’s Day Gift ideas series. If you haven’t already read the first part in which I showed you some amazing food and drink options, you are absolutely missing out. In addition to that post, I will be sharing with you so many more amazing products and brands today, to really give you some inspiration. I can’t wait for you to see what I have selected so lets get started.
Box42 was set up last year by Caroline & Jai, who were getting restless being stuck indoors. They were frustrated at the lack of options to keep their weekly date night routine going through lockdown. They launched Box42, a pun on “box for two”. The aim is to make date nights at home easy, fun and meaningful. Each month is a new themed box containing interactive couples activities to set the mood, snacks and drinks from indie brands. In addition to this there is also an optional dinner menu, a playlist, additional content and so much more. Despite Covid putting a stop to normal date nights, Box42 would be a great way of celebrating a unique, pandemic-proof Valentine’s at home.

Crosskey Avenue is a boutique perfume house based in London. They are passionate about perfume and its transformative power to take us back in time to a significant memory. They have recently launched with their first collection of fragranced candles. Each candle is inspired by a global destination. Having personally tried the Ischia candle with hints of citrus lemon, rose and tomato leaf, I can safely say these are like having a holiday scent in a candle. The perfumed soy blend wax candle has such a luxurious scent to them which is in keeping with the lovely box and packaging of the candle. You can choose from three scents, Haputale, Ischia and Langkawi. If you are feeling particularly generous, you could even buy all three at a discounted price.
Lastly, I would like to introduce to you Bunch Skincare. They create professionally formulated, beautifully packaged, vegan products. Their products contain all you need to look after your skin and hair in a natural and easy to understand way. Without a doubt, everyone should be able to understand what they are putting on their skin and hair. The majority of Bunch Skincare products contain less than 10 ingredients. Importantly, each ingredient is included for their powerful beneficial properties. Bunch skincare offers a selection of 9 face and body oils, packed in beautiful glass bottles with practical pump dispensers. As well as this, they also offer fragrance-free products to cater to natural skincare lovers with sensitive skin. At the beginning of February Bunch Skincare will be launching face cleaners. In addition to this, they are also launching the first of their hair care products, an all-natural revitalizing dry shampoo.
