Valentine’s Day is just a couple weeks away! These are the best gifts to get yourself, get your coworkers or friends (I had a LOT of requests for under $25 gifts so I spent extra time working on that one), or just send this post to your guy as a not-so-subtle hint. 😉
Admittedly these are all very female centric gifts – I’m not planning on doing a gifts for guys guide this year but I have in the past… for inspiration on that front, check out this post, this post, and this post! When it comes to gifting your guy, I’m a big believer in experiences > things. Plan a fun date, a weekend away, get tickets to a concert or comedy show… he’s probably going to like that a lot more than whiskey stones or another sweater… just my $.02!
The Best Valentine’s Day Gifts Under $25.
This was a fun one to work on. I inadvertently chose a lot of drinking receptacles (3 mugs and a tumbler, oops!) but they’re all very cute and would make for a great gift to give your coworker or work contact (who doesn’t want another mug for their desk – whether you use it to store pens or drink tea, they always come in handy!) And i know I know, it isn’t very Valentines-y but I’m obsessed with this $12 notepad – and the colors are right!!!

The Best Valentine’s Day Gifts Under $100.
Okay I am so excited about goop’s new baths. At $35 a pop they’re a bit pricy but you do get 3 baths out of it (think of it as less expensive than a spa treatment?) but I can’t think of a better way to treat yourself to something really decadent. The Martini sounds perfect right about now… an emotional detox! Also I realize that this water bottle is totally crazy and a little extravagant but if ever there is a reason to treat yourself (or a best friend), now is the time!

The Best Splurge Valentine’s Day Gifts.
Admittedly, this was my favorite to work on as I pulled a few things I’ve been crushing on, as well as a few of my own favorite splurge items. I bought myself these Beats Headphones and love them so much. And while it isn’t pink or red, I have a feeling we are going to see a lot more from this brand. I bought myself this bag in powder blue (you’ll be seeing it soon) and can’t say enough good things. It’s one of the best designed bags I’ve ever laid eyes on. I love the size, the back pocket, how it lays flat to my body… it’s perfect. And on the jewelry front, I included a few favs from Monica Vinader, but I am super into Herkimer diamonds right now. They’re a little more rustic (and less expensive) than the real deal but they are so cool! Also this fragrance smells so good. Like candy, in the best possible way.
