5 Fool-Proof Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas + Bulova Giveaway
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and whether you celebrate the holiday or not, you can’t help but take the time to give either your loved ones or yourself a little somethin’ somethin’.
While I’m a firm believer that you should always continue to express your love and gratitude for your loves all throughout the year, I also believe that it can be fun to use the day as an excuse to really show someone you care. And as much as I spoke about how to spoil yourself for V-day last year on the blog, which you can see here, this year, I’m all about those fool-proof gift ideas that will always end with a smile!
Whether you are showing some love to a friend, family member or significant other, you truly can’t go wrong with any of these items.
The Scent of Love
I feel like Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to give a beautiful scent, but I find it mostly overlooked. I’m not sure why, because I love the idea of gifting a yummy scent to a loved one. Years and years ago, my boyfriend gifted me a perfume and at first I didn’t think much of it, but it soon got me thinking. I loved that he took the time to carefully select a scent that he not only liked, but thought that I would like as well.
I see perfume as such a personal touch to someone’s character and personality, so gifting a perfume can really feel romantic. I’m currently loving the Dahlia Divin Le Nectar Spray from Givenchy with its notes of Mimosa, Sambac jasmine and Tonka. Not only is the scent intoxicating, but the bottle is beautiful and makes for a stunning addition alongside jewellery and stylish displays in your home.
All Dolled Up
After the Holidays, it’s expected to forget a little bit about beauty gift sets, but Valentine’s Day is just another occasion when beauty brands that I love, release adorable gift sets that are just perfect for the holiday of love!
I personally love the idea of gifting a favourite gal on your list a pretty beauty set like this Limited Edition Be Mine Valentine’s Day Duo from BeautyCounter. A classic red lipgloss in ‘Ruby’ along with a feminine light pink nail polish from Côte make for a perfect pair! And not only is the lipgloss stunning, but its moisturizing – what better way to show your loved one you care, right?
I’ve said it time and time again, that you really can’t go wrong with flowers for Valentine’s Day. My boyfriend and I don’t always celebrate every milestone or holiday, but he always likes to surprise me with fresh blooms. This gorgeous bouquet called “The Bella” from Tonic Blooms is the best gift idea I can suggest to you. This tulip-filled bouquet, along with other options are available for pre-order so you can have your bouquet delivered to your loved one at the perfect time – having gorgeous fresh flowers that will definitely make them smile!
And as if that isn’t enough, each bouquet includes a FREE sweet treat from Squish Candy!
Doughnut You Know How Much I Love You?
Who doesn’t love an excuse to eat sweets? For me, I’m a fan of showing some extra sweetness this time of year, but I am definitely not a box of chocolates kinda gal so I always appreciate a creative option. Last year I was about the cupcakes, but this year, I am ALL about the doughnuts. I really feel like you can’t go wrong with surprising your loved one some doughnuts and Jelly Modern Doughnuts are my number 1! I’ve been a fan of theirs for years now and their Valentine’s Day menu is too sweet to pass up.
You can choose between heart shaped doughnuts, a box of four like the above L-O-V-E doughnuts or even a box of 16 three-bite doughnuts. You can even be the best Valentine of life and give a gift card so you can plan a Jelly Modern mini-date and visit them for a sit down treat!
Instead of doing chocolates or candy this year, think outside the box and gift a true sweet tooth with a box of Jelly Modern goodness!
Nothing But Time For the Ones You Love
No matter what, spending time with the ones you love is the most important thing when it comes to showing love. That’s why, instead if elaborate jewels or simple jewellery, I love what a watch represents for Valentine’s Day.
One of my first presents from my boyfriend was a watch and he said he wanted it to show how much he wanted to spend as much time with me as possible. Beautiful, right? So a watch to us is so much more than an accessory, which is why I had to suggest it for V-day. This stunning Women’s Diamond Watch from Bulova is every bit feminine and classic. With it also available in silver and gold-tone, you can’t go wrong with he countless options at Bulova. The design of each watch is so beautiful and will last you forever.
From the Ladies’ Diamonds Collection. Newcontoured case in stainless steel and rose gold-tone, 24 diamonds individually hand set on case frame and on brown dial, curved sapphire glass, stainless steel and rose gold-tone bracelet with double-press deployant closure, and water resistance to 30 meters.
