Hmmm... Valentine's!

So Valentine's day is looming. A bright light on the horizon of gloomy wintery days and dark evenings. Can't wait for Spring!! We at FiveGoMad HQ are a bit sceptical of Valentine's day. There is huge amount of pressure to send a loved one a card, flowers, chocolate, or go out for that slightly tacky meal. Is this the busiest day in a restaurants calendar? If so, why do they charge so much and do so little? All awful, and you wouldn't catch us doing any of that, but there better be a card through our door!! So for that very reason we are going to share with you our favourite Valentine finds for all you romantics out there!!!

We can't help but love Twisted Twee's Combat Pillows. Why sleep when you can have  a good fight? We are also curiously drawn to the Coalition Love Pants for the loving couple, HA HA HA. Twisted Twee's Man Bags for the disgruntled male shopper made us chuckle. How many of you men out there have said "whatever I get will be wrong" and why is it that you lovely men have a tendency to forget what her indoors sent you out for?

Twisted Twee's valentine bunting is totally fab, 'It will end in tears', for all you eternal pessimists.

Now, if you want to score brownie points for your other half I strongly suggest getting a candle. You can't go wrong with a candle. The candles by Pure Light are wonderful; handcrafted from soy wax  and environmentally friendly.

Their new scent is Rose Geranium and Black Pepper, which naturally soothes and seduces, and gives a true sense of well being.  Apparently black pepper essential oil also acts as an aphrodisiac. Whoop whoop!

Another winning Valentine's Day offering is… well, anything that’s sweet and yummy actually. Talking of which, Yummycard does personalised ‘Cake Cards’ which would be perfect for an after dinner Valentines indulgence. They are organic and Fairtrade and, cleverly, small enough to fit through your letterbox! So economical and - importantly when time is in short supply - easy.

For you men, who don't have a Valentine and want to treat yourself, we strongly suggest a spot of redecorating. Go on, order yourself some She Wallpaper by Beware the Moon. You know you want to....

Alternatively, for you single women our advice would be 'Valentine yourself"  and treat  yourself to a gorgeous 'I love you' necklace by Marte Frisnes. 'cause if you don't love your self  how can you expect anyone else to?
