February is the month of love and, in a relationship or not, there’s definitely a loved-up vibe in the air. What better time to show the people in your life how much they mean to you?
Whether you’re celebrating Valentines with bae or Galentines with the girls (or maybe you’re not celebrating at all – but it’s the perfect excuse to treat your mum to something special), we’ve got loads of ideas for gifts for all of the ride or dies who are there for you. Trust us, they’ll appreciate these gifts much more than any bouquet or boring bottle of scent!
What to get everyone in your life for Valentines Day
There’s nothing quite like a mother’s love and she probably deserves an island, but let’s start with something you can actually afford for the woman who brought you into the world. After all, mama doesn’t want you spending all your cash on her! A cosy night in together with films, popcorn, a bottle of fizz and some pamper essentials like our Nourish + Hydrate sheet masks and your nail polish collection will make mum feel so appreciated.
For your partner
Valentine’s gifts for your other half can be kind of predictable and once unwrapped, they’re likely to be forgotten about. Most couples could do with a little more quality time together, so how about booking a night away for you and your love? It’s something you can enjoy together and shared memories are better than any box of chocolates. It doesn’t have to be anywhere exotic - just an overnight stay in your nearest city or favourite local hotel is sure to get you in the mood for love.
For your BFF
She’s been by your side through thick and thin and even when you’re fighting, you know you can always count on her. You remember every single make-up faux pas the other has ever made - from concealer lips to the fake tan fiascos - so why not give her the gift of some grown-up glam make-up? You know what shades flatter her skin tone best, so a luxurious lip colour is the perfect gift. Is she a Goji Red or a Mauve Lychee? Both will leave her pout kissable for her own Valentine!
Thank your pa for all those lifts he gave you as a teen with a gift that helps him pursue his passions. Give the guy a little time to himself! Whether he’s into gardening, brewing his own beer or burning off steam on the golf course, there’s bound to be a gift you can give him that’s related to his hobbies. You can't go wrong with books on the topic, new accessories or a voucher for his favourite place. Buying for Dad doesn’t have to be difficult!
For your sister
Everyone knows the best thing about having a sister is being able to borrow her clothes and make-up, right? Get strategic with a Valentine’s gift you can steal! Our Blush Serum Vault has four beautiful shades of lip and cheek colour, so you can both choose the ones that suit you the most. We’d say that’s reason to go halvsies!
