Gifts for Your Valentine (Or Yourself)

Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to treat the ones we love, showering them with flowers, chocolate and gifts as a public display of affection. For all the men out there who are clueless as to what to buy their special ladies and the women who want to show their selves some love, here’s my list of treats worth giving.

 

valentine's day gift guide the offbeat venusian beauty

Sigma Beauty Essential Kit ($160, Nordstrom.com)

For the woman who loves makeup or is just getting into it, this is a great high-quality kit! Sigma has AMAZING brushes that perform at a professional level, and this kit includes everything necessary to apply a beautifully blended full face.

Tocca ‘Bianca’ Body Lotion ($20, Nordstrom.com)

TOCCA fragrances are so delicate and sophisticated. I recently purchased some of their hand creams for my mother and she absolutely loves them. This body lotion would look so luxurious sitting atop a vanity table!

Women’s Baublebar Gabriela Tassel Fringe Earrings ($48, Nordstrom.com)

Okay, there’s no denying how cute these are. What better occasion to wear bubblegum pink tassel earrings than Valentine’s Day? Pick these up so you have them ready to pair with your date night outfit, or wear them all year long. You do what you do!Sugarfina Xoxo 2-Piece Candy Bento Box ($18, Nordstrom.com)

How cute is this little bento box from Sugarfina? You probably know the brand for their champagne and rosé gummy bears, but they have so many interesting candies. These are packaged in a beautiful keepsake box that doesn’t even need to be wrapped — that’s a win!
 Madewell Small Transport Leather Crossbody – Brown ($128, Nordstrom.com)

If your girl’s anything like me, she probably won’t be into designer purses. This is a great, high-quality leather bag to carry all of her beloved necessities. From her laptop and tablet to her current favorite novel, this is the perfect size for someone low-key and on the go.

Urban Decay Naked3 Palette – ($54, Nordstrom.com)

The Urban Decay Naked palettes are classics, and this iteration is the perfect collection of romantic and rosy hues. What I love about this palette is its ability to go from day to night! Women of all different beauty genres will be able to appreciate this, plus it’s a flattering shade range for a spectrum of complexions.Women’s Mantraband ‘I Love You To The Moon And Back’ Cuff ($35, Nordstrom.com)

This is a super cute piece of jewelry with a subtle profession of love. Not quite a diamond ring, but not exactly a quarter machine prize. Mantraband also has a bunch of other messages on their bracelets if love isn’t your thing.

Kate Spade New York Glitter Love Potion Iphone 7/8 & 7/8 Plus Case – Pink ($55, Nordstrom.com)

I love clear iPhone cases like this because you can see the color of your iPhone peeking through. The glitter is super cute and is a fun way to add a little pizzazz to your get up. I’m a pretty low key person as far as clothes go, so my phone case is the one thing I go a little crazy with. Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette – ($42, Nordstrom.com)

I have no words to describe how much I love this palette. This is my NUMBER ONE eyeshadow palette — formula and shade range. Highly pigmented, extremely versatile, and totally unique. This is an awesome palette for both beginners and artists, and the warm tones are beautiful for all year round. Of course I had to include this beautiful palette on my Valentine’s Day gift guide for the amazing range of pinks and reds.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette – ($62, Nordstrom.com)

Luxury beauty at its finest. In the most beautiful travel-friendly compact, these powders are amazing ways to add glow to your complexion. Beauty influencers all over rave about the Hourglass powders, so go ahead and give into your greedy desires so you can get that glow!Jouer Blush Bouquet – ($30, Nordstrom.com)

These beautiful blushes from Jouer are gorgeous to look at. Talk about amazing packaging! I’ll be picking this compact up for myself this holiday — I’ve watched so many influencers rave about these pretty powders. They come in a range of pinks and nudes, so there’s something for everyone.
