A more genuine Valentines Wish List

A more genuine Valentines Wish List

So I have already shared my lingerie wish list for Valentine’s day and I have to say … if I do get any of the items, it will not actually be for Valentine.  My husband and I are not the soppy romantic kinds – we do not go out for luxury meals on the day  (especially not when you can get the same meal for half the price the next week), we do not shower one another in expensive presents, and there is never a chocolate or rose in sight.

We’re trying (and trying is the operative word here) to save money – the idea of a house is quite a nice thought and, failing that, I wouldn’t mind a holiday somewhere warm and sunny where I don’t have to get dressed – ever!

Instead, come Valentine’s Day, we swear that we’re not going to buy each other presents and then we do anyway.  But they are of the small and personal kind.  No doubt, my ever organised husband has already arranged a small something for me but, just in case he hasn’t, these are a few items that I’m rather potty about!

Shakespeare’s Folio Editions by The Globe


The globe releases a new facsimile of Shakespeare’s First Folio whenever they produce the play.  So far I have collected The Tempest, Measure for Measure, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hamlet & Macbeth.  Perhaps I’ll soon have another to add to the collection?


The Hobbit Door Necklace


I saw this on Just Me Leah and feel completely in love with it!  I don’t think I could ever be parted from it if someone *hint hint* would buy it for me!


Buy Go Stationary Notebooks


I’ve taken to jotting things down lately – the positive things that happen, lists to be more organised, blog ideas, shopping lists, random thoughts that pop into my head.  These mini notebooks are super cute and will fit perfectly into my handbag.

So you can see, I’m fairly low maintenance when it comes to Valentine’s day and, to be honest, I would be perfectly happy with just a night in front of the fire, some good food, and a bottle of wine!

How about you?  Does anything grab your fancy? Would love to know what you’re hoping for so leave a comment below and let me know!
