Every year we celebrate Valentine’s Day as a way to show those around us we love them. It’s not only for your significant other. Giving gifts to our friends and family is a great way to show them they areon your mind and that you love them. It can be difficult to break out of the flowers and chocolate gifting rut. Here are a few unique gifting ideas for your loved ones this Valentine’s Day.
Fenty Skin is an extension of Rihanna’s beauty line. The brand recently launched at Sephora, and with that, a great starter set to get an introduction to her line. This set comes with a cleanser, toner-serum, and a sunscreen. The sunscreen has been praised throughout the skincare community as it does not leave a white cast on deeper skin tones. This is a great set for someone looking for an easy way to start a skincare routine.
This cute set comes with two flavors of the cult-favorite Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. This is one of the few products I personally have to have in my purse wherever I go. It is thick and creamy, and super hydrating on my lips. This is a collaboration with Netflix and the movie To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. The set comes with a full-size Berry flavor and a mini size in the sweet candy flavor. This set will be a hit with your giftee.
Instead of a super sweet scented candle, this Heretic candle has an earthy, woodsy scent mixed with vanilla and sandalwood. Heretic makes perfumes and scented candles from naturally derived sources. They specialize in having their scents work for anyone, and they are plant based instead of alcohol. There is a big emphasis on having aromatherapy aspects to these fragrances.
This heart covered palette is the perfect gift for the makeup lover in your life. This is a great six-pan palette full of warm neutrals and a few shimmers for a great everyday look. These shadows are super pigmented and blend beautifully. Every time your giftee uses this palette, she’ll think of you and what good taste you have in makeup.
The Better Than Sex mascara is a favorite mascara for most beauty lovers. This mascara has won multiple awards for how fabulously it performs. It plumps and lengthens the lashes in a gorgeous, no-flake formula. This particular version is a collaboration with the influencer @iluvsarahii. Instead of the usual pink tube, this one comes in glamourous marble packaging.
If you still want to gift roses, this is a lovely set to make it unique. This set comes with a few rose-based products that hydrate the skin beautifully. It includes the Soy Face Cleanser, Rose Toner, Rose Moisturizer, and Rose Lip Cream. So instead of a dozen red roses, try this rose-based skincare to give her skin a deep hydration and glow from within.
Kiramoon is a relatively new brand to hit the market. And it’s no wonder that it’s already a hit with the skincare crowd. This heart-shaped hand mirror is a cute statement piece for a vanity. The Resurfacing Facial is a four-in-one treatment that exfoliates, tightens pores, hydrates, and softens. It’s a mixture of hyaluronic acid, AHA, and Niacinamide. It’s a highly effective, and adorable skincare line.
This adorable set has the S.W.A.K eye palette and a heart blush that create the perfect date night look. The blush is a burnt red, that gives a deep glow, while the eyeshadows are a mix of warm pinks to make a sweet look. Colourpop is a great brand that is super affordable for great quality. Even if the set is sold out, either of these two pieces would make for a great gift.
This set is a great set to try the top sellers from the popular K-Beauty brand Glow Recipe. It comes with the Blueberry Bounce Cleanser, Watermelon Glow Pore-Tightening Toner, Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask, Watermelon Juice Moisturizer, and Sleeping Mask. These come together to be a great skincare routine starter kit.
Do you really need to keep your skincare in a fridge? It’s not a requirement, but it is a nice luxury. I personally use mine to hold sheet masks and moisturizers that I prefer a cooling sensation from. I also keep Vitamin C serums in it to keep them from going bad before I can get to them. It keeps certain skincare ingredients more stable, so they stay usable longer.
This adorable miniature humidifier is a perfect gift, especially with the dry winter air sapping the hydration out of our skin. This comes in a few different colors and makes for a cute addition to a bedside table or a vanity. This model can last for eight hours on continuous mist or ten hours on intermittent mode. The lights on the inside change colors. It’s a great way to keep your skin and face hydrated. If you often get dried out while you sleep, this can really help lessen discomfort in the sinuses. It doesn’t hurt that it’s super cute too.
Yes, perfume is more of a classic Valentine’s Day gift, but this one will really surprise and delight your Valentine. This fragrance is a mixture of Lily and Iris flower scents with a white musk undertone. It’s like a light floral scent that will remind you of relaxing at home on the weekends in the spring. The red bottle design is a limited edition version to celebrate the Lunar New Year, and it will look fabulous on your love’s vanity shelf.
This palette is definitely going to get the Valentine’s Day message across. This palette is versatile enough to lend both to daytime looks, and more sultry date night vibes. The color payoff in Huda Beauty’s palettes is always unmatched. Super pigmented and velvety soft, these shades are what every girl is looking for.
Nothing says romance quite like a hot bubble bath and some luxurious bath gel. It doesn’t get much more luxe than Guerlain. This feminine shower gel has a warm floral scent with jasmine, lavender, and a touch of sandalwood. It’s a sultry, almost spicy scent that will be sure to please whoever you gift this to.
