Wowcherching’s Valentine’s Gift Ideas

Love is all around us…

Valentine’s Day… the perfect opportunity to treat your boyfriend, husband, girlfriend, wife, fiancé, partner or, let’s just say, special someone who’s yet to make an official title. Play your cards right and buy a gift through Wowcherching, and we guarantee you’ll receive a very happy return – cashback, of course!

For all the remaining singletons, we’d like to dispel the idea that Valentine’s celebrations require an essential other half – you are complete as you are, and deserve to rejoice in love and reap the cashback rewards too! Plus, as Wet Wet Wet (among others) soothingly sang, ‘love is all around you’. In other words, no wallowing, no grumping around, and you have two options: 1) share the love, be it with your lover, friends, family, pet or indeed self, and get cashback; or 2) find the love (of your life), and get up to £60 cashback with eHarmony or up to £45 with match.com!

How does cashback work? You click through to a retailer via our website and shop as normal. We do all the rest for you – any purchases you then make from said retailer will be tracked and before you know it you’ll receive cashback in your Wowcher Wallet plus 10% bonus, all of which can be spent on Wowcher Daily Deals! As a Valentine’s treat, we’ve compiled a list of Valentine’s retailers which will get you 25% cashback bonus – all the retailers mentioned in this post included!  Read more

Spring Bling!

Springtime. The season where fashion blogs burst their stylish banks with the word “transitional”. Have you embarked on the transformation that is ‘updating, tweaking and reshuffling your wardrobe’? Have you swapped ‘faux-fur for fibre fresh cotton’? Spare us, please. Because just as you’re worrying whether to bin the cable knit for a little linen number, we have another idea; pluck out the jewellery box. There’s one trademark accessory that stretches across all seasons – and it’s the trinkets, charms and diamonds, darrrrling. Let’s revive the trends:

Make a bold statement
Vie for attention – and win – with a statement piece intended to captivate all those who cross your gem-encrusted path. Go for gold, and pair vibrant stones against neutral fabrics and gilded chains with achromatic greys. Or add spice to lack-lustre basics with clustered-style necklaces bathed in clashing colour combos. For best results, team geometric designs such as the Aztec-inspired necklace with tencel tees and feather light camisoles.

Fans of the statement piece include: Olivia Palermo, Millie Mackintosh, Louise Thompson and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Restore your shine
Forget frenemies, the reliability of the not-so-humble diamond provides us with all the companionship we’ll ever need. Lovers of this timeless trend include Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie and British icon and girl-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne. Match Black diamonds with subtle sterling silver to enhance its multi-faceted glory.

Go Great Gatsby
Pearls, pearls, pearls. A stone so precious we need to scour the aqua-marine waters of New Zealand and China to prise them from their clammy shells. These milk-coloured beauties come in eight basic shapes: round, semi-round, button, drop, pear, oval, baroque, and circled. Known for their iridescent sheen, and metaphorically for their celestial qualities; why not channel the elegance of Kate Middleton with a pearl heart tri set, consisting of a pendant, bracelet and pair of earrings? Other collectors of the shimmering stone include Whitney Port, Emma Watson and Scarlett Johansson.

What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Ferocious crooner Tina Turner once sang these famous words, and as the season for increased romance loometh near, we can’t help but agree with her. We may sound bitter, we may sound jaded, but au contraire dear readers, we’re just being practical. Although we have nothing against emotions per se, ask yourself this question: when love fades, the chemistry fizzles and the butterflies cease to flutter, what will you be able to point to?

Through many generations, women have been giving it up merely for a simple dinner and a declaration of eternal love, but in our opinion, empty calories do not a lasting relationship make. A wise man once said, “the best things in life are free, but you can give them to the birds and the bees – I want money,” and boys, you ought to take heed. If you’re reluctant to dole out lump sums of cash, we’re not fussy; we also accept jewellery in lieu. So if you’ve had the pleasure of being jabbed with Cupid’s arrow but you’re stumped for gift ideas, show her you care with diamonds and pearls – or just Swarovski Elements, because let’s face it, we’re not made of money…
