Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? Normally I would celebrate with my folks (it is their wedding anniversary) then with my hubby for dinner. Being that we are so far away, clearly we won’t be doing that. We usually exchange gifts & such as well! So, if you give gifts to your wife, sister, cousin, co-worker, daughter, or any other female, I hope you find this helpful! I tried to include some options that you could go pick up eight this minute along with some others I personally just love.
Lips & Blush – Let’s start with one of my favorite blushes ever, Everyday Minerals Blush in Wild Vines. This is the easiest to wear cool toned rose pink blush, perfection. In the red lip spectrum I chose OCC Lip Tar in Stalker & Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 111 Kiss of Life. Both are gorgeous reds that last a long time without the tight long wear feeling. For pinks I had to throw in one of my very favorite brighter pinks in 06 from the Rimmel Kate Moss line. For a cupcake/vanilla scented pink gloss there’s Palladio Herbal Lip Gloss in Eleventh Gorgeous. Want something more natural? Korres Pomegranate Lip Butter is without fault.
Dr. Hauschka Aromatherapy Bath Kit – I honestly think this kit is perfect for someone who loves a bit of luxury. With scents like Spruce & Sage this kit is super original & smells lovely. Other scents are Lemon, Lavender, & Rosemary. I have found you should use less than recommended, these are intense! Great gift idea for someone who needs a bit of stress relief & relaxation. This set is from Cut & Blow.
Pinch Provisions Minimercency Kit for Her – I included the for Him kit in my Men’s roundup & clearly love this one as well. What a fantastic idea! The Pinch Provisions Minimercency Kit for Her contains a bit more than the men’s but when don’t we need more stuff? With everything you’ll need in a mishap this kits is seriously the perfect kit for anyone. From elastics to clear nail polish to earring backs this kit kick butt!
Cleanlogic Soap + Sponge in Peach Berry – Let’s start with: I am now obsessed with soap sponge combos. I got one in a Glossybox & have been seeking out more. This one smells incredible & fruity & is just more special than your average bar of soap! I’ve also found these to be easier to grip & they don’t wear away as fast. This would be a great addition to a bath set!
Ghirardelli Chocolates – If nothing seems to quite fit, go with a winner. Ghirardelli is some of the best & my house takes chocolate pretty seriously. Dark chocolate is usually my flavor of choice. Dark Chocolate with Strawberry Filling? Yeah that doesn’t last long with my husband. Not into dark chocolate or even milk chocolate? Try the Ghirardelli Sublime White Vanilla Dream All Natural Chocolate which is made with real vanilla beans. It is ridiculously good.
Fragrance – If you are in a really giving mood (& preferably if you know the person & their preferences) then a fragrance can be an amazing gift. On the left is Victoria’s Secret Seduction Dark orchid which is a super sultry, sexy scent. The adorable bottle on the right is Betsey Johnson Too Too which is kind of a sexy rocker scent. I think this one might be going away (I’ve been seeing it on sale) so if you want it, grab it fast!
So there are my picks for Valentine’s Day this year, hopefully you can find something to suit your needs. What did you pick up for the women in your life who you love? Still unsure what to get the men in your life? Jump on over to my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Men 2013!
