Valentines Day is soon approaching – yep, we’re only 2 weeks away! I like to think that I’m always prepped in advance with great gifts but this year it kind of slipped my mind with so many other things going on. So while I’m doing some online shopping, I thought it might be helpful if I compiled a list of great Valentine’s Day gifts (that could also be referenced for birthdays or any sort of gifting!)
It might be obvious to you, but guys don’t always know what we want. Send him here for some good ideas.
Who doesn’t want a good pair of pajamas to lounge around in at home. A cute teddy is like the dressed up version of being comfortable or you can opt for an upgraded silky matching set.
Because it’s so cold right now, a snuggly robe could be the perfect gift to use after a warm shower or to lounge around the house when you’re getting ready to brace the cold outdoors.
This one is self explanatory, but candles make your house smell amazing. I light one everyday. They could also be used to set the mood on a special night.
Scents evoke memories and make you feel good. I don’t feel fully dressed before I spray myself with perfume. Why not have your loved one pick out something they like for you?
There’s nothing better than receiving chocolate. Whether it’s a box of mysteries, some truffles or chocolate covered fruit. Plus they’re easy to share – or not.
Who doesn’t love jewelry? I’m personally into stacking rings and dainty necklaces these days. These don’t have to be big ticket items, rather little investments that’ll always remind you of this Valentine’s.
Makeup Brush Set
Brush sets are crucial to good makeup but they could add up to be a little more than you want to spend on yourself. You’ll use them every time you apply makeup and maybe before your big Valentines Day date.
Another classic, which is always welcome but now there are new brands that help keep your bouquet alive for a full year. Enough said.
This is another easy piece that’s maybe too practical for you to think to buy for yourself. If you have a wallet you love already, you might need a card case to use in smaller bags or to just slip in your pocket while running errands. Plus, you’ll think of your partner every time you see it.
Every time I ask my husband what he wants as a gift, he says nothing. So without his help, here’s a little guide:
I don’t know about your guy but mine loves to blast the volume. Whether he uses his speaker for music or for sports, that’s up to him.
Golden Goose Sneakers
I love when my husband dresses in brands I love. His style is very streamlined and basic so a cool pair of sneakers will add to any look.
If he doesn’t already have these, he needs them. They’re great for hands-free calling and switching to music while running around in the cold.
Women aren’t the only ones who like to feel good all the way down to the underwear they’re wearing. Get him great higher-end underwear that he could feel proud in.
A great belt is another useful accessory that he could wear as much as he wants but may not want to spend money on himself. This is where you come in.
A cold weather necessity. I bought a pair for my husband last year and he lives in them.
Oliver Peoples Sunglasses
Sunglasses are a great gift because you could never have too many. Get him a style he loves or purchase something daring that he might be scared to get for himself. Oliver Peoples sunglasses all have a timeless style that I think make a great gift.
These are great for around the house, running errands and bringing to the beach on vacation. Win, win win.
We’re not the only ones who want to lounge in style. Get him a nice comfortable pair for cuddle hours.
My husband takes his facial hair very seriously but doesn’t love to moisturize his skin. Get him a set for either and help him develop his regimen.
This blog is all about gift giving, and what’s wrong with gifting yourself? There are some things that you might really want but they just don’t feel right as a gift. Treat yourself.
There’s nothing I love doing for myself more than rejuvenating my skin. Whether it’s the material I’m sleeping on or a quick facial, I don’t think I could have enough of these little gadgets.
A designer bag is a big purchase, but you deserve it. Find a style that you could get a lot of use out of or splurge on a special piece that you’ll only use for special occasions.
There are so many amazing beauty products out there. Here are a few of my current favorites to add to your current makeup routine:
Masks are another indulgence that I try to do a few times a week. I like to switch it up for different problems I might be dealing with like dryness, discoloration or even a good ole’ detox from the NYC air.
I used to lay my jewelry out on my dresser until I discovered my multi-level jewelry box. It keeps everything super neat and I feel good knowing where everything belongs. Plus, it helps with my OCD!
Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to treat yourself (or your partner) to some new lingerie.
Now that I’ve done some gift research, I have to finalize my February 14th plans. How do you usually spend Valentine’s Day?
