Valentine's Day Gifts Your Best Friend Will Love

Saturday, February 2, 2019

A day highlighting love, Valentine's Day shouldn't only be about your sweetheart. With so much love in the air, there's no harm is extending a little extra kindness to your best girl friends this V Day.

While most may have stocked up bags of sweet heart-shaped chocolates and candies to share with their favorites, some of us may have our eyes on somethings better than the classic box of chocolaty goodness. From cheerful baubles to extravagant treats, I've rounded up some stylish gifts your bestie will love. 

This set features three perfect shades with which you could create endless manicures. Whether your best gal pal is a fan of complex nail designs or simple, clean manicures this set is sure to fit all manicure needs. Including the perfect romantic red shade (Ardor), simply painting your nails with this shade will have you beautifully set for V Day. For a an extra dose of glam, the luxurious, ultra-glitzy topper shade (Gala), can be applied atop either Ardor or Prim, a soft, off-white polish. 
I cannot recommend JINsoon's polishes enough as the formula is just beyond wonderful. The brush makes application a breeze and the polish dries down to a lustrous finish which  makes top coat optional. As someone who always likes her nails in tip-top shape, JINsoon's luxurious nail polishes hold up brilliantly throughout the week and makes it a gift you'll want to use till the last drop. 

Valentine's Day isn't complete without a little something sweet and this lovely box of decadent macarons is a fresh (and delish!) alternative to a classic heart-shaped box of chocolates. The box itself is beautiful but what's housed inside - Laduree's iconic macarons - is the epitome of dreamy indulgence. For this limited-edition V Day box, heart-shaped macarons will be nestled alongside Laduree's classic best-sellers. The special heart-shaped sweets will be a unique rose and lychee flavored blend that are sure to taste as amazing as they look. 

How stunning are these earrings? I first saw them on Ashley Brooke of Ashley Brooke Designs and thought they would make the ideal statement gift for your BFF (or yourself!) this V Day. The heart design itself is very on-trend but its rich red shade and classic beaded construction make it a  fast favorite you could wear time and time again. Best of all, these beauties are lightweight so won't be in tears from the pain by the end of night, as I so often find myself when wearing statement earrings. 
*This style of earring also comes in a stunning soft pink shade 

Blair Waldorf's favorite hair accessory is having a resurgence in the fashion industry and there's no one designing better or more high-quality headbands than Lele Sadoughi. Her stunning, crown-like crystal and pearl adorned styles will make you feel like city-chic royalty. If you like a more subtle look, her embellish-free knotted headbands come in a variety of fabrics and prints. Upon browsing her beautiful collection her Velvet Headband in Cherry Red instantly caught my attention as it screams glamorous Valentine's Day style. From casual to dress, this lovely hair accessory is a gift that'll upgrade any look. 

While most find gifting fragrance a bit tricky this pretty set makes it so much easier. This unique set of nine beautifully blended scents is meant to be used and layered to your liking. Introducing the method of Intention Scenting, this set encourages you to apply each fragrance with a positive intention and perspective during application which leads to a comforting mindset. Additionally, the kit includes a beautiful rose quartz and set of intention cards to continue with the theme self-reflection. This mood-altering gift is one that keeps on giving in a healing fashion. 

For the friend who has everything, gifting a cute card on Valentine's Day is a treat in itself. These special cards go beyond the simple versions available at drugstores and are sure to make a memorable impression. Along with its colorful designs and witty messages, each card comes with a matching sachet of fragrance for a quick spritz of delicate aroma - such a cute idea.
