Whether you’re coupled up, showing some appreciation for your bestie for GALentine’s day, or simply just want to treat yourself because after all, YOU deserve it. Valentine’s Day is for everyone. There are absolutely no rules that say that you have to be in a relationship to enjoy Valentine’s Day. And if you happen to be on the hunt for some Valentine’s gift ideas, then you’ve come to the right place! Here are a few of my favourite gift ideas that might spark some inspiration.
Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas
Beauty Subscription Box
A beauty subscription box is a clever and thoughtful gift idea for any occasion from a birthday, to hitting a personal milestone, to Christmas, nevermind as a surprise for a special someone on Valentine’s Day. For a gift that keeps on giving long after the occasion has passed, beauty subscription boxes are a great idea.
I’ve tried out various beauty box subscriptions over the years and each and every time I always welcome the surprise of several new beauty products to try every month. The Look Fantastic beauty box* is a great option – The monthly subscription box delivers 6 cleverly curated products worth over £50 straight to your special one’s desk or door. You can choose a subscription plan that spans 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or a year so you’ll be sure to find a plan to fits your budget.
The box I have here was part of Look Fantastic’s January box and features products from Ecooking, the eco-friendly GLOV, Australian Bodycare, Mamma Mio, Lord + Berry, Sebastian Professional as well as a copy of ELLE magazine so you can see the kind of variety you’re getting. For me personally, I love the surprise of discovering new brands and reigniting my love for old favourites.
Gifting Pretty Jewellery
I’m not talking about engagement rings here but, it goes without saying that a piece of jewellery is always a welcome gift. It doesn’t have to be an expensive ring or an overpriced necklace, as long as it comes from the heart is all that really matters.
I’ve frequently talked about my favourite jewellery brands over here on GGMH but if you’re looking for somewhere to start, this post, this post and this post will help. Featuring independent jewellery brands catering to a range of budgets, you’ll be sure to find a pretty piece of jewellery that is perfect for a Valentine’s Day gift.
And You Can’t Go Wrong With Perfume
Fragrance can be an extremely personal thing and if you’re choosing a scent for someone else, it can be quite daunting. If your special someone prefers lighter fragrances, I definitely recommend reading this post talking about 3 ‘barely there’ fragrances from Jo Malone, Dior and Chanel that are light, subtle and fresh.
However, last year I shared my entire perfume collection describing my favourite scents which might also be a helpful list for you as I cover niche perfumes, independent perfumes, budget perfumes and more.
And there we have it, a little inspiration on what to get your bae (lol) or yourself for Valentine’s Day (Or GALentine’s day) this year!
