The lovely people at Find-Me-A-Gift sent me one of their Valentine Gift ideas to try out for the blog. They asked me to choose from the following selection:
Personalised Glitter Heart Key Ring
Bomb Cosmetics Bath Melts - Chocolate Gift Set
Red Rose Compact Mirror
Big Hug Heart Cushion
Living in one of the wettest parts of the UK I chose the umbrella. Typically for nearly a week after it arrived we had no rain at all so I didn't get to try it out for a while. Eventually there was the perfect wet school run to road test it on!
It feels like a pretty robust umbrella and I wasn't afraid that it would blow inside out. The umbrella is also a decent size and could comfortable fit 2 adults under for a romantic walk in the rain. To show scale here it is by my front door:
The umbrella kept my head and upper body dry in the rain. It also drew a lot of glances and comments with its unusual shape. This makes both a fun and practical gift for the lady in your life.
They are currently on offer at £13.99 and come in a choice of red, bright pink and light pink. If I hadn't already got one it wouldn't upset me to be receiving one of these on Valentine's Day. It will last longer than a bunch of roses and won't pile on the pounds like a box of chocolates!
