Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas
Happy Friday friends! With Valentine’s Day coming up in a little over a week you might be looking for some ideas or inspiration for small gifts to get the special people in your lives. Well look no further, because today I’m sharing a list of my current favorites that would all made wonderful gift ideas for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re getting something for a significant other, a friend, a sister, your mother or yourself, hey the relationship you have with yourself is the most important, I have you covered.
The Sweetest Things
Because duh, it’s Valentine’s Day. Candy is practically necessary. I love all these wonderful Paleo friendly treats, which are much better than traditional chocolates. They are all free of refined sugar and are a million times better than those sketch candy hearts. Eating Evolved chocolate and Coconut Butter cups are just the best. They are rich and so satisfying, that a little goes a long way.
Ona Cookies are just wonderful, perfect for when you don’t want to or don’t have time to make your own. Made with all clean, Paleo friendly ingredients, they are a no guilt indulgence.
And who needs chocolate truffles when you have these Coco-Roons? Not me, that’s for sure. I especially love the Lemon Pie flavor, they are soft and have a lovely lemon flavor.
The Cozy Things
Because sometimes people don’t like sweet treats. Blasphemy, I know, but those people exist. I’m looking at you Mom! So a cozy gift is perfect, especially if you live in a cold part of the country. This cozy, plush blanket is just the best. I use it as a throw when I’m on the couch watching TV. And these slippers are as cozy as can get. They’re super soft and comfortable, and keep your feet nice and toasty.
The Pretty Things
Because sometimes a small gift like a journal might inspire someone to start writing. Or a gift like a mug might inspire someone to have more coffee or tea at home, saving them lots of money in the long run. Valentine’s Day is all about the frilly, lovely things.
The Pampering Things
Because as good as Bath and Body stuff smells, you know it’s filled with sketch chemicals you do not want to put on your skin. Seriously, how do they get the Island Breeze scent and all those other nondescript scents. These brands are my go-to where I am looking for hand lotion, body lotion or lip balm.
Primally Pure lip balm is what I use all winter long to keep my lips nice and moisturized. It’s really a glowing endorsement considering I live in Chicago, and it’s always like 5° here.
Acure is another non-toxic brand I love! They have skin care items, face care items, soaps and hair care. Their Calming Lavender Body Lotion is a favorite of mine. It leaves my skin smooth and has a wonderful lavender smell.
100 Percent Pure is a brand I recently learned about and I’m pretty much in love. They have skin care, body lotion, hair care and makeup. I use their makeup and adore it. I especially adore this Coconut body lotion. Made with all natural ingredients and the smell is incredible, like chocolatey coconut. It’s so good I want to eat it.
And if you’re not on the Beauty Counter band wagon yet, you need to be. I love their products, they are all non-toxic and actually work. This rose hand cream is what I use all winter long to keep my skin nice and smooth. NO gator hands here.
The Fun Things
Because sometimes there’s nothing more fun than a new pair of shoes! I love these running shoes, they’re so light and comfortable. They feel like you’re walking on pillows. And these rose colored shoes have me wishing for an early spring, so I can wear these shoes all the time! And they’re rose gold, perfect for V-Day!
The Yoga Things
Because these yoga socks are too cute not to share. I wasn’t planning on adding these to my list, but I got these for myself last month and I absolutely love them. I wear them to my PIlates class and they help me stay planted on the mat, and not slip and slide everywhere. And have I mentioned how cute they are!
These are all item I personally own and love. They would make a great gift for anyone. Share the love and make someone’s day! It’s amazing how a small act of kindness can help improve someone’s mood.
