Few of us would be disappointed to receive the usual chocolates and roses combo this Valentine’s Day, but if you want to treat your loved one to something a little more thoughtful this time around, beauty gifts are a fantastic place to start! Here are our top beauty gift recs for her…
Fragrances can be romantic, evocative, and of course, sexy. Choosing the right perfume for your partner is a deeply personal process, and you probably know your date’s taste in fragrances better than anyone. But if you’re not sure where to begin, here are our top picks:
- Floral: Dolce Floral Drops – Dolce and Gabbana. This fresh, delicate floral recalls sunny spring days – the perfect romantic perfume.
- Fruity: Amor Amor Forbidden Kiss – Cacharel. This fruity gourmand fragrance is an intoxicating mix of fruity top notes, a heart of coffee, and a musky vanilla base. Forbidden Kiss is one sexy perfume.
- Fresh: DKNY Women – DKNY. If your partner prefers lighter, zestier perfumes, DKNY Women should be a hit. Citrus top notes give way to a floral heart, then a gentle, woody base – with impressive longevity. You’ll need to wait for hot summer days to get the best out of DKNY Women, but it’ll be worth it!
Again, we recommend that you check out our full range of top brand fragrances to find the perfect perfume for your partner.
Scented candles, bath soaks, and more pampering
If your other half deserves some TLC this Valentine’s Day, put together a pampering kit! Buy her a selection of scented candles, bath products, face masks, and any other luxurious gifts you can think of (how about choccies and wine?). Find products with scents that she loves, and package them with a note saying how much she deserves to be pampered!
For a future holiday
If you’re planning a surprise summer getaway with your partner, tease the trip with some suitable summer beauty products before revealing your holiday plans! Sunglasses, sunscreen, travel sized cosmetics… you get the picture! These thoughtful gifts not only make your holiday reveal all the more exciting – these products will actually come in handy when you do jet off!
Makeup and skincare
For a partner that adores makeup or skincare products, a well-chosen addition to their collection can make for a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift. If you want to make sure you get the perfect product without spoiling the surprise, it’s a good idea to stick the brands you know she loves. Is her favourite eyeshadow palette looking a little sparse? Treat her to a new one, or a palette with a similar range of shades. Does she love a specific Molton Brown body wash? Grab a hand lotion from the same collection.
One final tip…
Valentine’s Day is a notoriously expensive occasion – but your beauty gifts don’t need to break the bank. Treat your partner to the big beauty brands she knows and loves without the eye-watering price tag at Direct Cosmetics!
