I’m pretty sure my husband thinks chocolate is the go-to gift for Valentine’s Day. Not that there is anything wrong with chocolate, but sometimes a little extra thought would be nice. Guys, if you are reading this, ditch the chocolate and the roses, and pick something extra special for your lady.
One of the biggest parts of gift-giving is really thinking about the person. After really thinking about that person and what they would want, you can make the gift extra special by spending just a little more on it or by picking something they would think is a tiny splurge. All of the gifts in this guide are affordable but they are special enough to make a statement. To really make an impact, find a pretty card and wrap the present in a nice box or gift bag.
Candles make a really great gift for anyone from your bestie to mom. As long as you have an idea of the types of scents they like you can’t go wrong. But instead picking up any candle, pick one up that smells beautiful and looks beautiful too!
Our go-to place for buying candles in Anthropologie. They have so many great options at a variety of price points. We really love the Voluspa candles. If you want to make the gift even more personal check out this monogram candle.
Splurge Worthy Beauty Products
Getting a lipgloss or a bottle of shampoo isn’t exactly going to impress your gift recipient. But a splurge-worthy, luxury beauty item will make a lasting impression.
While there are plenty of beauty items we could recommend, here are five that we think would make a great gift.
Olive & June Studio Box Mani Kit | Who doesn’t want to get a salon-quality manicure at home?
YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick | This lipstick is almost too pretty to use. It will make a great impression on the vanity and on the lips. Not sure which color to pick? Shades 89 and 44 will look on any skin tone.
Victoria Beckham Beauty | Any beauty lover would be happy to receive an item from this luxury, clean beauty line. We can’t wait to get our hands on the mink lid lustre.
Bath Time Essentials
For those that love a good soak or even a spa-like shower, bath products make a great Valentine’s Day gift.
