It seems like I barely got done putting away my holiday decorations when Valentine’s Day cards and gifts popped up! I’ve pulled together some of my favorite gift picks for that special Valentine in your life, all guaranteed to spark joy.
Fragrance is a classic Valentine’s Day gift. Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale is new and very special. It’s feminine, delicate and sure to be a new favorite. It’s like a bouquet of white florals that envelopes you in warmth and sunshine. With notes of Sambac Jasmine, peony and lavender-vanilla accord, Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale is romantic and perfect for spring. The “quadrilobé” bottle is exquisite!
Whatever the holiday, makeup is always an option for a beauty girl, and neutral eyeshadow palettes are universally loved. For Valentine’s Day, turn up the glam with Huda Beauty’s New Nude Eyeshadow Palette. This palette takes nude eyes to next-level status with an assortment of 18 eyeshadows. I found the quality of this palette to be giftworthy: beautiful finishes, excellent pigmentation and eyeshadow colors that are blendable and wearable. The glitters are spectacular (apply with your finger for best results!).
Add a little whimsy to her life with the Kate Spade for Minnie Mouse ‘Lacey’ Wallet. I received this wallet as a gift from my husband, and no matter when I pull it out, I get complements. Plus, it’s so fun and happy. On the inside, there are plenty of slots for cards and cash. If she’s a Disney fan, or loves Minnie (really, who doesn’t?), she needs this. Love!
Looking for a gift that’s romantic? Create the mood with this Diptyque Damascena Candle. Scented with the classic Damask rose, this limited-edition candle is presented in a special pink and orange glass container. Once the candle is gone, she’ll have a decorative glass to hold makeup brushes, q-tips or other necessities.
One gift that’s always appreciated is a hand cream. Chanel LA CRÈME MAIN Hand Cream is a luxurious and thoughtful gift. The sculptural design of the bottle makes it easily retrieved from a handbag. The hand cream itself nurtures, protects, brightens and thoroughly hydrates skin without leaving a greasy residue. I find LA CRÈME MAIN Hand Cream to be excellent during the cold, dry, winter air. There is a very light, fresh scent. It’s lovely!
I’m firmly on “team treat yo’self”, so one gift I ordered for myself is the YSL Heart and Arrow Rouge Volupte Shine Collector Oil-in-Stick Lipstick. This is my favorite YSL formula; it’s sheer and super hydrating; more like a tinted lip balm. One of the few lipsticks that I will use right to the bottom, it’s that good! Once I saw the cute packaging, I was all in.
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a gift of jewelry. Show her she has your heart with this Monica Vinader Mini Heart Diamond Bracelet. I love the rose gold bracelet, with 43 pavé diamonds in the heart. It’s delicate and something she’ll wear and treasure daily.
