I love to promote lots of small businesses through gift guides and here is my Valentine’s Day 2023 guide. These could also be used for Birthdays, Christmas, Anniversaries or for a just because present.
Mylee London [AD]
I have been talking to the lovely team at Mylee London about what what they have for Valentine’s gifts this year and I have 2 items which I love to show you.
The 1st item I fell in love with is this two ring necklace which is personalised with names, emojis or words of your choice. I got a 3 ring necklace in silver with Ezra, Ethan and Robin on mine to wear daily. They have different options online: singular ring, 2 ring, 3 ring and 4 ring option as well as different lengths for the chain. The rings are available in silver, gold or rose gold so lots of options to make sure they are perfect.
We haven’t been sent these but I found them online and they are brilliant! If your partner loves to make milkshakes, iced coffees, or just loves cute items then these Animal Double-Walled Glass would be perfect. You can choose from Cat, Bear, Teddy Bear and Dog and it comes with a Personalised Metal Straw. I think the teddy bear is super cute and would look adorable with squash in it or a pimms in the summer. These glasses keep drinks both hot or cold and reduce the risk of burnt fingers. They come in a black gift box as well.
I love these Heart Metal Straws that can be personalised and if you love Boba Tea / Smoothies then these bigger straws would be perfect and they can be personalised too! Metal straws are the best alternative to the paper straws that places now give out.
You can get 10% off at Mylee London during February using MEGAN10 in the discount box.
Gummee Teether Hearts [AD]
Ezra was GIFTED two heart teethers last year from Gummee Glove to be use with his Glove and solo which we love! They make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for a teething bubba if you buy for the kids too.
I love the fact that they are soft which means their hands don’t get sore from holding them and the drool is easy to wipe over as it is food grade silicone. We now have grey, purple and red which is adorable and plenty for us to have one everywhere which is exactly what we need right now.
Ezra seems to love them and using them with his Gummee Glove helps us as he drops everything right now. The design is brilliant and child friendly that it isn’t offensive or too OTT and I don’t mind the colours either which is unusual for children’s product as usually they are very obnoxious.
Gummee is very proud to have won multiple product and business awards over the years. Although we have never really sought out awards We are always pleased to receive them, but we do believe that customer reviews, social media likes and Gummee live video views mean more because that’s where real mums and dads have told us how much we mean to them, through good communication and always being there if they need any help with teething. Gummee Mummee (Jodine Boothby) goes live via facebook and instagram every Monday at 20:30 and every Wednesday at 14:00 to discuss our products as well as doing a live giveaway of the product of the week from another company who will also be a small business. Hope you can join us.Gummee Glove Website
We LOVE this product and it has helped us so much with Ezra now he has found his hands and we really hope it will help you too.
Everytime you support a small business they do a happy dance and you are not paying for a second home or an expensive holiday but you are supporting a family, paying for school activities and new uniform, as well as much more. It means an awful lot to them.
Clean Co [AD]
Nick and I don’t drink alcohol so this is perfect for us so we can still enjoy the look of drinking but without the hangover and without the consequences of drunken behaviour. Clean Co was created by Spencer Matthews before the birth of his first child when he decided he wanted to make a life change.
Developing CleanCo was not to preach about alcohol consumption, but to give you a choice when mixing a drink, without compromising on taste or social experience.You should be able to enjoy the delicious, refreshing cocktails you know and love without the repercussions. We now make alternatives to gins, rum, tequila, vodka and whiskey and are proud to be the leading independent brand in the UK. We continue to innovate regularly so that we can bring you the best non-alc spirits in the market and we will have a great time doing it.
Some say that CleanCo sells non-alcoholic spirits… We say we sell time. Cheers to a life less wasted.Spencer Matthews – https://clean.co/pages/about
We got gifted the Clean W which is the non-alcoholic take on Bourbon Whisky. I love how it has the characteristic notes of oak and sweet vanilla and it tastes great with coca cola and I 100% don’t miss the alcohol in it.
We really liked it and we both agreed that we would drink it over “Proper” whiskey any day as it has great notes of spice, fresh apple and I would say a hint of figs too. Nick agreed he liked it and he isn’t a huge whiskey drinker usually.
You can shop the whole range here.
Really Good Conversations Card Game [AD]
Really Good Conversations is packed full of thought provoking conversation starters and it isn’t just the “what would you eat every day for the rest of your life?” type of questions. This game creates a huge chance for everyone to share and listen to each other like never before and I love that.
I think many people would agree with me but often when we talk to people we listen but we don’t necessarily take it in and remember what they have said. This game allows you to really tune in to what is happening, what is being said and the idea is that you remember and digest what is being said.
This would be perfect for first dates, or when you meet your other halves friends for the first time and you want to ask all the questions but you don’t want to be too full on.
It is light enough to carry and take with you so could be used on lots of different journeys i.e trains, planes, automobiles, or during picnics, but the opportunities are endless.
Each pack contains the standard 53 cards that you would find in a playing card deck but each of these special cards contain the unique question cards (as well as the instruction card.).
I really love this game, and the couple behind it are so genuinely in love with their product and you can tell they really enjoyed creating it as well as marketing it to the sellers at Top Drawer. As a bonus it has been designed and manufactured completely in the UK so that is a big selling point for me.
It would make a great Valentine’s day gift as part of a hamper or Date Night Gift Idea and you can get it now on their website.
