Love is in the air as Valentine’s Day is fast approaching (1 WEEK!). In celebration of this Hallmark commercialized holiday that I love, I thought I’d write-up a gift guide to help inspire you!
Today’s edition is for the woman in your life, be it your galpal, mom, girlfriend or wife, the gifts on this list are sure to make her smile!
For the makeup lover in your life, you can pick up this gorgeous set from your Sephora or order it online just in time for Valentine’s day. It’s a nice neutral lip kit that has everything she needs to prep her lips for a date night. If you want to amp up this gift, you could DIY a spicy cinnamon lip scrub and moisturizing balm to use prior to this set (my favourite recipe can be found from HelloGlow. Of course, don’t forget to throw in her favourite treats!
Bath Bombs ($4.50-$19.00 CAD)
If the gal in your life loves to pamper herself, why not try gifting bath bombs? You can DIY your own here, or if you’re not that crafty (aka you have no idea where to get Citric Acid – I’m with you on that one!) you can buy so many different kinds! One of my favourite Bath Bombs to gift is by Charmed Aroma ($19 CAD+), because your loved one can not only pamper herself, but she’ll get a nice piece of jewelry out of it – It’s a win win gift for sure! If she’s more of an “au-naturel” kind of gal, consider getting her some bath bombs from Lush ($4.50 CAD+), there are so many to choose from and they all offer so many great benefits, you’re sure to find the perfect one for her. To amp this gift up, why not pair it with a nice body lotion and some sheet masks for the ultimate pamper night. (Bonus if you’re getting this for your significant other, take advantage of jumping in the tub together and doing face masks, such a great and affordable date-night in idea!)
Personalized Phone Case
Okay, I know this seems super cheesy, but I think this would be such a cute idea for gifting to parents or to your BFF, or if you’re extra, for your partner. Find a picture that they love, and get it put on a phone case. You can get this done at Walmart, VistaPrint, and pretty much anywhere that offers photo services these days! Now your s/o can carry you anywhere they go! It’s like the modern-day photo in a wallet, but on your phone for the world to see!
This is such a beautiful gift set for any gal in your life – It’s the perfect gift for anyone who’s not a fan of bold colours, but likes that radiant “glow from within” look. It’s also perfect for achieving that every day no-makeup makeup look, for even your laziest of friends! If you’re giving gifts for Galentine’s to your friends, you could totally split this gift up and pair it with a DIY lip balm and some candy.
Last but not least, why not gift fragrances? I know this seems risky, especially if you’re gifting this to a friend rather than your partner or parent, but I think this is such a lovely personal gift, I know I love receiving perfumes for Valentine’s day from my man because I know he took the time to smell a bunch of fragrances and chose one he not only likes himself, but thinks I would also like. When I wear perfumes my guy got me, he always recognizes the smell and it instantly brings him joy. For this time of year, my favourite scent is definitely Pink Sugar. It smell so sweet and spicy, the perfect combination for Valentine’s day! You can pick this up from Sephora, but also check Shoppers because I’ve seen Pink Sugar giftsets the $20 perfume rack.
There you have it, beauties. I hope this list of gift ideas inspires you to pick out something unique and lovely for the woman in your life. In the coming days I’ll be releasing my Valentine’s Gift Guide for Men, because Lord knows, shopping for dudes is ultra difficult!
