Valentine’s Day. Some might think of it as a made up Hallmark holiday, others might think of it as a conspiracy against all the single people in the world, and some just freakin’ love it! Over the years I have been on all sides of Valentine’s Day – good & bad. But I still always loved to do something nice for the special people in my life.
Here are a few gift ideas for the special people in your life to celebrate just how awesome they are!
Gifts for Him:
Nothing beats a gift card to get a nice massage. Treat your man or special guy for a nice rub down at any of the local spas that accept Massage Envy. Pick up one at any retailer that sells gift cards.
I mean, who wouldn’t love that?! Get your special guy a nice bottle of scotch, vodka or wine of his preference. If you have no idea where to begin with this one, head to your local liquor store (Total Wine & More, Crown Wine & Liquor) and talk to any of the employees working. They know their stuff and can guide you in the right direction.
Treat your feet for Valentine’s Day! Cushion your feet with tender, loving care with these warm, indulgent slipper boots, filled with a superior blend of 75% white down and 25% sea bird feathers. Made with 100% cotton.
Or how about this bathrobe fit for a king. Made from premium cotton in a rich, double-cut terry cloth, it features Hästens signature blue check design.
Gifts for Her:
Your lady may love this exquisite fragrance experience with Eau Aimable, the Botanical Cologne of Love, from Le Couvent des Minimes. Sparkling and delicious, this floral-fruity blend combines sweet orange blossom, citrus fruits and five beneficial plants to evoke sweet memories. The scent transports you to a springtime stroll through Mediterranean orange trees and conjures the fresh, juicy scent of summer fruits.
What better way to say I love You than with this adorable couple’s initial necklace. Available in silver or rose gold, customize with your initials. This one is my personal fave – as my husband got me this for Christmas.
How about something for yourself? This stunning perfume oil is packaged in a luxe 18kt gold plated necklace. Warm and sensual, deadofnight opens with green top notes. The complexity of the Oudh heart is balanced with light, floral hints of Jasmine and Rose, and finishes with nuanced Sandalwood, Amber, and White Musk. The sophisticated, unique fragrance finishes with a lingering hint of mystical allure. Handcrafted in small batches, the exceptional oil is slowly absorbed into the skin, combining with the wearer to create a deeply personal, unique scent.
This trendy wraparound ring is one of the hottest pieces around and a sure win. Available in gold, hematite and rose.
Can’t go wrong with sending your lady for a day of pampering. In fact, she may even come back happier than she was receiving it! Check the salons and spas around your area to see if they are doing any Valentine’s Day specials. Hell, do a couple massage!
