With Cupid’s arrow ready to strike in less than a week, my blog wouldn’t be complete without compiling a Valentine’s Day gift guide for all the lovely ladies. Depending on what type of relationship you’re in, purchasing gifts for Valentine’s Day can be a tricky area to navigate. Did you just begin dating? Are you in a serious relationship or have you been in a long-term relationship? Whatever your Facebook relationship status, I’ve rounded up an eclectic mix of items at multiple price points to appeal to your heart’s desire. All you have to do is drop a few hints, leave this gift guide conveniently on the kitchen table for your guy, or simply buy an item off this Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for yourself.
For any men who might be reading this, you could end up becoming the romantic hero this season! Yay!
This curated list of handbags covers the price conscious consumer to the shopper who want to splurge! It wouldn’t be a list worthy of DWR without an obligatory cameo appearance by the color pink. Okay…the bulk of the bags are pretty shades of pink, but I think it makes them more swoon-worthy and desirable on a Valentine’s Day Lust List. A few of my favorites include the heartshaped Rebecca Minkoff bag with chain detailing, a simple and classic Madewell blush tote, Topshop’s pink envelope clutch, and the puzzle bag from Loewe. My ultimate lust is Loewe’s blush puzzle bag. I could just die over this handbag! Not only is this bag ultra chic and stylish, Loewe’s unique origami silhouette makes it instantly recognizable. This bag can be carried and worn FIVE different ways due to the precision-cut leather panels. Talk about ingenious!
For the accessory aficionado, this list of pretty baubles will add the perfect finishing touch to an ensemble. My favorite items from this list include the MVMT minimalist watch with pink leather straps, spiked hoops with crystal accents from Rebecca Minkoff, the fuzzy faux fur portable charging bank (because who wouldn’t want a puffy portable charger? Can you say beyond cute and oh so bourgeois?), and the Lumee light up phone case. Your selfie game will reach new heights when taking photographs with a phone-case that perfectly illuminates your face.
For the beauty junkie, a few popular items include the new Dyson supersonic hair dryer, YSL’s Touche Eclat blur perfector, the cosmocube makeup organizer, and Jo Malone’s Red Roses Cologne. I don’t know what it is about the fragrance from a silky rose petal, but it is intoxicating. I always fall in love with scents containing rose as floral note. Consequently, Jo Malone’s perfume contains seven different types of roses from around the world. Not too shabby for the consummate lover of roses.
I’m the first to admit I’m not the best at organizing my makeup, so naturally, this acrylic organizer caught my eye. I foresee Cosmocube’s organizer being a future purchase to assist me in smartly and stylishly organizing my glam room. Lastly, YSL’s blur perfector is ideal for blurring any imperfections, minimizing pores, as well as creating a nice rosy-glow. This versatile compact can be used as an all over complexion perfector, as a setting powder, or as a mattifying touch-up powder. Brilliant!!
My last grouping includes an assortment of items ranging from clothing to candles. Want to set the mood for a little romantic interlude? Light any of the three candles to infuse the room with an unforgettable warm, romantic, scent; slip on some silk pajamas, or channel your fierce modern girl via Calvin Klein’s signature cotton intimates. My personal favorites include the calvin klein undies and bra combo, a pair of pink fuzzy slippers, and an oversized ADIDAS sweatshirt. I can envision myself lounging on a sunday morning working on my laptop in this oversized coziness sans pants. Why? Because Sundays are for lounging, eating breakfast in bed, and lounging around the house pants-free!
