From knock-off perfume to underwear that would have made Caligula blush, the history of Valentine’s Day is littered with ill thought-out gifts which have consigned generations of men to the sofa bed.
Avoid putting your foot in it and let your better half choose her own present with today’s Big Deal on a gift voucher from BU Beauty in the Merchant City.
It is a simple offer. For £24, you get a voucher which can be exchanged for up to £60 worth of full price treatments at the BU Beauty salon.
Slip the voucher in your Valentine’s Day card and you’re golden.
It’s brilliant. Your loved one gets to choose her own Valentine present and you still come across as thoughtful, considerate and generous.
It gets better. While she is being pampered at the salon, you could work on your love sonnets. Or go to the pub. Or play on the X-box. Or simply enjoy the rare experience of doing nothing.
Top end products
Located within Kavanagh Hair & Beauty salon on West Virginia Street, BU Beauty offers a full range of nail treatments and a wide selection of other beauty treatments.
This friendly city centre salon uses top end products such as NSI, Nfu.Oh and Gelish – names which may mean nothing to you but will have your partners’ eyes glowing.
Qualified beautician Karen has over a decade’s worth of experience in the beauty sector. While nails are a speciality, BU Beauty also offers waxing, party lashes and Remy hair extensions.
The voucher can be used for multiple visits. So, for example, your partner could spend £30 of the voucher’s value by having a set of acrylics fitted in February. Then in May, as the warmer weather approaches, the remaining £30 credit could be spent on a ¾ leg wax – everyone’s a winner.
Or she might just pop in to the salon for six file and polish sessions at £10 a time – the beauty of this deal is that it gives the voucher holder a great deal of choice as to which treatments to have and when to have them.
BU Beauty has been winning fans on its 5pm Health & Beauty entry. This is what one happy customer thought of her experience at the Merchant City salon:
‘Love love love my Gelish! First time visit to BU Beauty and was very impressed! Karen is lovely and so friendly. Knows her stuff when it comes to nails! Will definitely return again!’ Rating 4.6/5
