It feels like just yesterday we rung in the new year. How is it February already?! Let’s be real here; we never needed a reminder because stores have been shoving it in our faces since Christmas ended, BUT in case you needed another… Valentine’s Day is coming up. Or Galentine’s Day… or Single’s Awareness Day? Whatever you want to call it haha! To be truthful, I’m not the biggest fan of commercial “holidays” like this one, because truly – everyday should be Valentine’s Day! We should always let those that we love know that we appreciate them. However, amidst busy schedules and sometimes distance, an occasion to spoil your best gal pal, mom, sister, or even yourself couldn’t hurt 😉
Let them know you’re thinking of them with these fun gift ideas!
Beauty Gift Sets
Everyone could use self-love and pampering often, so gift sets are always fail-safe. Think nail polish trios, bath bombs, face masks, fragrances, aromatherapy socks, and body care items. Be thoughtful and create your own set in a basket if you have to! For me, the gift of giving is exciting because I get to make my presents look like I put in lots of effort and love into them.
Treat the foodie in your life with a delightful gourmet snack like delectable chocolates, homemade baked goods, chocolate-covered pretzels, or cute heart-shaped candies. For the health nut, maybe quality dark chocolate or a nice fruit platter might be the better way to satiate that sweet tooth 😛
Okay, maybe this one’s a bit clichéd. But who doesn’t want to look and feel their best on this day – and everyday? I can personally say that I’ll never turn down pretty lingerie haha! Surprise your loved one and boost her confidence with a new sexy lingerie set, a soft plush robe, or cozy pajamas!
I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for home goods like candles, plush throws, pillows, unique picture frames, kitchenware… you name it! I feel like these gifts are not only fun to give and receive; they are also very practical for the homebody 🙂 Plants are another awesome gift idea if you know someone who is an avid gardener or just enjoys having them around in the house.
Jewelry, bags, wallets, and sunglasses are always great accessories to consider for the occasion! I love perusing through Marshalls and TJ Maxx because they’re filled with inspirational accessories. LOL. By that, I mean stuff that you wouldn’t necessarily THINK to get someone, but you’ll see it and then realize, BOOM! This would be the perfect gift for so and so. If you’re crunched for time, you can even just browse the checkout aisle and find cute iPhone cases and other girly fun tech, along with jewelry, mugs, travel goodies, and more. The best part is, everything is very affordable!
What are some of your favorite gift ideas for the month of love?
