Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love, no matter with whom, right? This year, my S.O. will be heading out of the country on Valentine’s Day, so I’ve decided to dedicate this Valentine’s Day to the women in my life (Hi mom, sister, and girlfriends!) and myself by treating us to something other than chocolate and flowers. I’ve rounded up my top picks for gift ideas for her/you that will last long after Valentine’s Day (unlike that box of chocolate). Shop them all by clicking the name of each!
With the expansive collection of colognes Jo Malone offers, you’re bound to find one (or more!) that you love. Instead of getting a bouquet of flowers, why not get the Red Roses Cologne so the scent of fresh flowers can be enjoyed year-round? My mom, sister, and I are all hooked on Jo Malone colognes, so they are our go-tos for gifts.
Not getting enough beauty sleep? Look no further than Beauty Dust, an adaptogenic blend of herbs that helps fight the effects of stress and bring out your beauty and glow from within. A perfect gift for your new mom friend – or any girlfriend for that matter – because who doesn’t experience at least some stress?
Known for its daring name and to be the most universally flattering shade of blush, Orgasm is a cult favorite. So much so that a whole collection has been built around it. I myself have been a devotee of the blush for years because of the natural look it gives with its pink, peach, and gold tones. Can’t think of what to get that friend who has everything? Not anymore! You’re welcome.
Moisturizes, protects, and smoothes your lips, while leaving a soft, rosy tint. What more could you ask for in an easy to carry lip balm?
This is hands down my favorite candle, not only for its scent and aesthetic, but also because it is phthalates, paraben, and sulfate-free. Candles make the perfect gift for any occasion and for every woman in your life.
Who couldn’t use another pajama set, especially one that is soft and luxurious? Don’t get me wrong – sometimes your favorite old, large tee does the trick. But when you want to get your hygge on or Netflix and Chill, trust me, you’re going to turn to this oh-so-soft set (and the splurge price tag will be long forgotten).
Forget 31 flavors. How about 33 flavors and some that are dairy-free?! Healthy ice cream that you can indulge in without the guilt? Is it too good to be true? Try it for yourself! My personal favorite is the vanilla bean flavor. Why not make a night of taste testing some of the various flavors with your closest girlfriends for Galentine’s Day?
If you want to spoil your fitness fanatic bestie, your search is over. These running shoes have special cushioning and a sleek design, so she’ll get your money’s worth from her CrossFit class to all-day errands.
My sister and I love to get each other inspirational and self-improvement gifts, so this one is for you, Jessica! This particular book includes 100 activities to help you reconnect with your body, mind, spirit, and surroundings. Count me in!
Sale alert! I’ve had my eye on these pants for a while now, and now that they’re on sale, I just might buy them as my Valentine’s Day gift for myself. With the athleisure trend still going strong and the flattering fit and floral print, they’re hard to pass up!
Nipple covers are great to have as part of your styling kit. They come in handy when your dress or top is low-cut and you need to wear something in lieu of a bra. The fact that these are heart-shaped, pretty, and sexy is just the cherry on top!
A white tee is a closet must-have that everyone should own. The heart print makes what would be an otherwise simple tee playful and whimsical. It would make a fashionable and practical gift for any gal pal.
Taking baths is something I’ve recently come to enjoy. What’s better than unwinding after a long day of work or just taking some time for yourself in the middle of a weekend day with a bath? This goop bath soak is made to center the body and spirit and help relax the neck and shoulders.
According to a recent study, taking a bath could have similar health benefits as those you get from working out (read more here). I’m all for that!
I swear by Hanky Panky thongs for everyday wear and for working out. They are discreet, comfortable, yet sexy, and don’t ride up. For those reasons, they are on my essentials list. They’re one-size-fits-all, so you don’t have to worry about knowing the recipient’s size!
