2019 Valentine’s Day Gifts

My husband and I don’t usually do Valentine’s Day gifts – my birthday is four days beforehand and over the years we’ve opted for travel rather than things for gifts (although he does send beautiful flowers!). But that’s not to say you shouldn’t do regular gifts, as it’s always nice to receive one from someone special in your life, especially if it’s something you’ll use and love.

Whether you’re asking your significant other for something you’ve had your eye on or giving your bestie a treat, here’s a list of my favorite Valentine’s Day gifts of the year. These all make great gifts for any occasion!

Valentine's Day Gifts

1. Flowers that last a year. I had no idea these existed until a coworker got them a few years ago. They’re not cheap, but I do like the concept behind them – these real roses are pretty, come in several sizes and will last up to a year. They also come in smaller & bigger options.

2. A cozy cashmere wrap scarfA couple of my coworkers also have these and swear by them. This is definitely an investment piece, but is such high quality that you can go ahead and get rid of other blanket scarves once you get your hands on one of these. They also come in lots of different colors, so ask for one you’ll wear often. Select colors are on sale here and here.

3. A nice neutral, leather bag or wallet. I have this carryall bag and love it because it isn’t too big but still fits a ton and has a cross-body strap. This brand is one you can count on lasting – the leather is good quality and they keep costs down by selling direct-to-consumer. Their zip-up wallets are also great picks. Everything comes in several colors of leather, but I’m partial to the stone or blush colors because they go with everything.

4. A fresh pair of (rose) sneaks or slides. My husband and I are sneaker lovers, so they make for good gifts in our household. I personally think that rose pink is becoming a neutral – it goes with everything – and I love when that extends into my footwear. I love these sneakers and these slides.

5. Dainty gold jewelry. I’ve been into layering simple gold jewelry and these are pretty easy to pick out for someone else without much guidance. My favorite places to shop for these pieces are Missoma, Mejuri and Gorjana (linked some of my favorites, which more as you scroll the images below!).

6. Book a weekend getaway and accessorize with a suitcase or other travel supplies. You can’t go wrong with a nice suitcase (love this rose gold option) – Delsey sent me their hard shell suitcases last year and they were so great we ordered another set for my husband soon after. Other ideas: a leather passport wallet (less expensive version here) or a travel set with a silk pillow and eye mask. The cashmere travel wrap mentioned above also fits into this category.

7. Nice candles & spa-like skincare products. I’ll never be disappointed if someone gets me a good quality candle. This brand is one of my favorites and they have pretty rose gold sets right now (another here). But I’m also into soy candles like these, which are also rose gold. This set is filled with clean skincare products like a hydrating rose mist, lip conditioner and body polish.

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide… for You!

I made it through my 31st birthday this weekend and now its onto Valentine’s Day. We’ll be heading out to San Fran to visit friends after work for the holiday – we typically prefer travel over gifts. But I do think Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to treat yourself to something fun you’ve had your eye on.

So today I’m sharing my Valentine’s Day gift guide… for you, all of which you can shop using the links below! You can’t go wrong with a nice pair of PJs, fun earrings or a good candle. I went ahead and grabbed the faux suede jacket below when I spotted it 40% off, so stay tuned for that! How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and whether you’ll be celebrating with your significant other or friends, I wanted to share some gift ideas, all of which I would love to receive myself. Read on and let me know what you’re wishing for this Valentine’s Day!

Valentine's Day Gifts

 

Gift sets with both jewels and makeup…

Two of my favorite brands – BaubleBar and Benefit Cosmetics – have teamed up for three Valentine’s Day gift sets. I love the Sparkle, Shine & All Things Fine set, which comes with two pairs of statement earrings, highlighter and lip & cheek stain. The Love, Luck & Long Lashes set has two stud bracelets and the popular they’re real mascara, and the Real Romance and a Rosy Future set includes an XO necklace, mascara and lip & cheek stain. {baublebar.com, $34}

Not-to-traditional chocolates…

Chocolates may be a traditional Valentine’s Day gift, but you can take it to the next level with these Dark Chocolate Hearts from Kohler Chocolates. They’re filled with a soft, raspberry ganache center that has hints of champagne and cognac notes, which is delicious with the dark chocolate. And they’re extra festive because they look like shiny red hearts. {kohlerchocolates.com, $9.99-$59.99 depending on size}

Pretty-in-pink flats for any occasion…

I’ve said it before, but I’m so picky when it comes to flats. I used to wear so many different pairs every day of the week, but now I stick to brands with high-quality flats that are comfortable and last. Tieks flats are made with Italian leather and they fold right up and fit in your bag so you can carry them along for any occasion. Plus they come in so many great colors, like this Fuschia, which is perfect for Valentine’s Day and into spring. {tieks.com, $175}

Fancy yet wearable lingerie…

Lingerie is pretty and all, but it’s even better when you can find something nice that’s also comfortable. Hanky Panky’s Candy Hearts Bralette and Thong are just that. They’re both made with the brand’s signature stretch lace and work for both special occasions and everyday. {hankypanky.com, $44 bralette, $26 thong}

Jewelry that makes a statement…

I always feel more put together when I have statement jewelry on, and I usually go with either fun earrings or a necklace. I’ve always loved Sole Society‘s shoes, and I was excited to try out some of their jewelry too. The Crystal Cluster Statement Necklace goes with practically everything in my closet, so it will be getting lots of use. And the Deco Drop Crystal Earrings will instantly dress up an otherwise casual outfit or can be worn with a dress for a special occasion. {solesociety.com, $34.95 necklace, $29.95 earrings}

A sweatshirt that can be dressed up or down…

I love that crewneck sweatshirts are back in style, especially because they’re now available in fun colors, fabrics and patterns. I especially love them because they can be dressed up with a statement necklace or dressed down with yoga pants and flats or sneakers. This L.L.Bean UltraSoft Crewneck in dark orchid heather has a more flattering, feminine look than traditional sweatshirts and it’s nice and cozy. {llbean.com, $39.95}

A pouch to keep things organized with…

Big bags are my favorite, but it’s easy for things inside to get a little disorganized, making it hard to find anything. That’s why I love Hayden Reis’ Sea Clear Pouch. You can store your essentials in there – money, lip gloss, etc. – and then throw it in whatever bag you’re using that day. It’s especially good for the beach because it’s water-resistant. {haydenreis.com, $28}

Red and pink beauty products to get dolled up with…

A nice mani-pedi is a must for Valentine’s Day, and I’m loving SpaRitual’s Authentically (red matte shimmer), Dynamics (dusty pink creme) and Fall in Love (mauve red shimmer), along with Sally Hansen‘s new, limited-edition Patent Gloss Nail Color in Moto (red).  And I’m all about lip color lately, so you can finish off your beauty look with the new NYC New Work Expert Last Lip Lacquer, available in lots of different red and pink shades. It has the color of a lipstick and the shine of a gloss, and keeps your lips hydrated with color that stays put.  {sparitual.com, $12 each; sallyhansen.com, $5.99; newyorkcolor.com, $3.99}

Spa-like products to relax with…

I’ve always loved SpaRitual for their nail polishes, but they also have other great products, including candles, massage creams and body oils. As someone who is candle obsessed, I’m always buying new scents to try around the house. The Look Inside Candle is made with pure essentials oils and plant essences and the smell is instantly relaxing. And then both the Close Your Eyes Body Oil and Massage Cream are great for at-home massages. I also like to use body oil in the shower for extra hydration. {sparitual.com, $35 each}
