Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2020

A curated selection of my favorite gifting ideas for Valentine’s Day. This list which is great for your girlfriend, wife, mom or friend is full of thoughtful and useful gifts that will make her feel loved way past Valentine’s Day. XO!

Zen Den Candles • Abundance Quartz Crystal Candle ::: I stumbled across this company by accident and wow am I glad that I did! In sticking with the beautiful & unique theme – these are exactly that. This magical candle symbolizes life forces and brings abundance in all things. It’s molded from genuine crystals to create realistic details and is way too beautiful to burn! They also created a Crystal Cluster Heart candle just for Valentine’s Day, perfect for gifting. //

The Wild Sprout • Soaking Crystals & Lavender Refresh Mist ::: If you’re unsure where to start gift-wise, bath products are the way to go! These bathing crystals are actually thickly cut sea salt and offer a luxe bathing experience when mixed with essential oils + a steamy hot bath. And after a relaxing bath, follow up with the Lavender Refresh Mist on your skin or on your bed for a calming nights rest. //

Ovente • Victoria Collection Electric Kettle ::: For the tea lover in your life. I use this daily to make hot tea or lemon water, it heats up water in just minutes and looks chic displayed in the kitchen. And if you want to get even more use from this, use it to boil water for an at home steam facial by pouring the water into a glass bowl, adding essential oils and following up with a mask and a full skincare routine. It’s one of my favorite ways to create a spa-day at home. //

Valentino • Donna Born In Roma Valentine’s Day Gift Set ::: One of my favorite gifts to give (and receive) is perfume & cologne. This is THE perfect set perfect for gifting this Valentine’s Day! It’s a floral fragrance with top notes of bergamot & black currant, middle notes of jasmine flower & jasmine tea and base notes of bourbon vanilla, cashmeran and gaiac wood. It’s luxurious, and smells divine and I can guarantee anyone will love to receive this gift! //

Eucalyptus Farms • Bouquet ::: There is a subscription service for almost anything you can think of, and this is one of the more unique ones that I’ve found. Twelve sprigs of baby blue eucalyptus cut, bundled and shipped fresh from California. This will add a subtle hint of freshness to any space and help bring the outdoors inside during these cold winter months. //

Be Well Company • Smoothie Face Masks ::: Packed with vitamin C, probiotics and plant based enzymes these masks are made from 100% organic, real food ingredients. They act as a gentle exfoliator and will help restore, nourish, calm & brighten skin. The masks pair well with the steam-distilled Hydrosol Activators to activate and customize your mask. //

VitaJuwel • ViA Love Water Bottle ::: Undoubtedly the most beautiful water bottle I’ve ever seen. The ViA bottles are made from pollutant-free glass and encased hand-selected gemstones & crystals. The LOVE bottle features Rose Quartz, the stone of love and tenderness & Fiery Garnet for sensuality and passion. One of the most unique gifts and one that will get consistent use. //

Blume • Superfood Blends ::: 2020 is all about wellness for me and nourishing your body from the inside out is a great way to kickstart a healthy routine. My favorite blends are the Matcha Coconut (I love matcha anything) and the Cacao Turmeric. Matcha lattes are one of my favorite ways to start the day and the Cacao flavor is a great way to end it and unwind. The ingredients are all organic and include cacao, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, black better and ashwagandha and tastes like hot chocolate on a whole new level. //

Olaplex • Complete Hair Repair System ::: If you know someone who never makes it to a salon but still wants healthy, shiny hair (me 🙋🏻‍♀️) introduce them to Olaplex. I’ve heard Olaplex recommended from professionals for years, and I’ve come to learn, it’s with good reason! This collection improves hair health & strength while repairing, hydrating, eliminating frizz, increasing shine and color vibrancy. Yes, it does all of those things and makes you feel like you’ve visited a salon after every use. My hair is noticeably healthier and feels stronger and more manageable, despite it being months since having it cut. //

Made With A Mission • Love Spell Bubble Bath Teas ::: Bath products are some of my favorite things, ever. Each tea bag contains herbs, sea salt, botanicals, essential oils and beetroot powder to turn the water bright pink. Beetroot contains high levels of boron and is a known aphrodisiac, FYI! Enough said… //

Alcone X Formula Z Cosmetics • Forever Lips Alcone Red ::: The color most associated with love is surely red. What better way to incorporate red in your Valentine’s Day look than with bright, bold lips. This is an Alcone exclusive shade and is a long lasting, creamy formula that stays put for hours. //

Alcone • 6 Piece Makeup Brush Set ::: Something any makeup junkie can’t get enough of; brushes. I’ve slowly been upgrading my brushes throughout the years and have noticed a big difference in how easily my makeup applies. They also make a great gift for those who are just getting into makeup and don’t have a set of good quality brushes. //

Morgan Tyree • Take Back Your Time ::: Packed with strategies and ideas on how to make the most of your time, align your priorities and better plan your days. In the chaotic season of motherhood this book has helped remind me to focus on what’s important and let go of the things that aren’t. It’s encouraging, it’s positive and it’s worth the read. //

Becker Salon • Be Chic Collection ::: Plant based luxury haircare that results in smooth, shiny voluminous hair without the use of harsh chemicals. Their products are infused with keratin, aloe, quinoa and coconut oil that work with the natural enzymes in your hair to help restore & transform it to its best state. Hair goals! //

BareMinerals • Gen Nude Palettes ::: There is no such thing as too many neutrals, especially when it comes to eyeshadows. The Gen Nude palette collection comes in a handful of variations made to flatter every skin tone. Pictured are the Rose (cooler tones suitable for light skin tones) and Latte (rich neutrals ideal for deep skin tones). The easy to use formula is fool-proof and these palettes will work for anyone and everyone. //

FollyFire • Drop The Shade Pressed Face Pigments ::: Beautiful, bright and bold. This indie brand is vegan, cruelty-free, gluten free and more than likely something even your most makeup obsessed friend hasn’t tried! The cheek pigments come in a wide range of shades from everyday wearable colors such as Soy Frappuccino (warm caramel – my favorite) to intensely bold, Turbulence (luminous deep lilac). There’s a shade for every mood and colors to help you step outside your comfort zone. //

Full Leaf Tea Co. • Healthy You Sampler, For Her ::: Organic Pink Tea, Organic Sleeping TranquiliTea, Organic Detox Tea & Organic Beauty Me Tea. A great selection for anyone perusing wellness (we all should make wellness a higher priority!) This cute little set of loose leaf teas are packed with antioxidants, and formulated to help you balance hormones, calm your mind, aid in detoxification and promote clearer skin. //

Sarah Knight • Book Set ::: Each title really says it all. Advice of how to say no to things you don’t want to do, how to stop worrying about what you should be doing and how to be who you are and take control of your life. Straightforward self-help advice that is humorous and relatable in the most genuine way. I have truly enjoyed reading these books. //

Green Bubble Gorgeous • Bath Products ::: I LOVE finding smaller companies that outdo bigger well known names (cough cough lush). Green Bubble Gorgeous has one of the best selections of artisan hand-crafted bath and body products I’ve ever tried. Everything smells so amazing and the bath bomb contains a Crystal inside it and was created to help restore your chakras and aid in immunity which is more than welcome during the winter months. //

Livana • The Minimalist PerfectTemp Leather Cosmetic Case ::: The most innovative makeup case I’ve ever seen. This contains PerfecTemp technology that protects your makeup from melting and a micro fiber lining making it a breeze to clean. I love throwing my daily makeup essentials in this and not having to worry about uncovering a huge mess. Whether she’s a makeup enthusiast or a minimalist, she will love this. //

Truly • Skincare ::: Skincare that screams Valentine’s Day. The Dew You Love Me Jelly Face Mask contains biodegradable glitter hearts and vitamin C and retinol that will leave your skin bright & glowing. The Unicorn Fruit Whipped Body Butter is my favorite of the bunch and leaves my skin so soft and hydrated and is more than appreciated on my dry winter skin. They offer a huge selection and have something for everyone. //

Herbal Dynamics Beauty • Skincare ::: Minimalist skincare that will get the job done. I love that making natural, effective skincare at an affordable price is their priority. The Cacao & Chamomile Clay Mask is potent and will leave your skin flawless, this has been a nice addition to my spa-nights at home. I also love using their eye cream to brighten, soften and help fight future wrinkles. //

Mindplace • Kasina DeepVision Bundle ::: I am a big advocate of meditation and anything that helps you find your calm. The Kasina uses visual objects to help you focus your mind. Put in your earphones, relax to the soothing sounds of nature (amongst other options) synchronized to the visual experience. A great option for anyone who needs assistance in focusing or stress management. //
