When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I always have a love-hate relationship. I love the holiday for kids and think it is great for friends to celebrate with each other. After being single for a long time and having a big push from retailers and restaurants centered around the holiday, it never felt good mentally. So take this with a grain of salt and feel free to click out if you aren’t interested. I pulled this post together because I am drawn to the explosion of pink, red, and hearts and the idea of celebrating love. It is always fun to see the bright colors pop against the grey days of winter. Below are some of my gift ideas for Valentine’s Day.
Diptyque Candles are a classic French gift for yourself or a friend. The Tuberose and Rose candles are two of the scents I love the most and gift often! The Tuberose has a special edition candle holder from the traditional Diptyque look. I collect matches from my travels so pairing that with a candle or a beautiful match set would make a nice addition.
Monica Vinader is always a favorite. It’s a sustainable female-owned brand from the UK. You can use the code REBECCA20 for 20% off. I love this locket necklace that can be engraved. These earrings are affordable and a personal favorite, I have super sensitive ears and no issues wearing these.
For a little pampering, the Lake Pajamas are so cozy. I pair mine with these UGG slippers which are a winter house essential. If you want to do a face mask this Black Rose Mask smells so good and does wonders. A bathrobe is one of my guilty pleasures and I find myself using mine more and more. This waffle robe looks incredible too.
French Girl classics for Valentine’s Day include the Gaspard sweater from Sézane. I am crushing on the Rosewood color but any color would be great. This adorable sweatshirt with a heart would be something I would totally wear.
If my husband is reading this post, this is on my wish list from Cuyana. This is one of my favorite leather brands and I feel their products are great investments. Other Cuyana favorites include this laptop sleeve which looks beautiful on a desk and packs up well for travel. (also on my wish list) If you are looking for an elevated tech pack, I love the look of this which fits into any Cuyana bag.
A little self-promotion for my small business, if your friend, girlfriend, or wife loves Paris. The Print Shop is a great place to shop. I recommend placing an order on the earlier side towards the end of January and very early February to make sure you get it in time. For romance, this print is one of my favorites, for a girl’s room, this is always a home run, and for a friend who loves Paris, you can’t go wrong with this print.
I don’t have much to offer. My husband and I don’t celebrate the holiday much. We may do a night out for dinner. He booked us a French restaurant to try that we haven’t been to before. I am much more for experiences than gifts. He does love Vuori joggers and shorts. I have also gotten hooked on the Sézane men’s brand Octobre which he now owns this shirt in two colors (sized up to an XXL) and I just bought him a new pair of Chelsea boots.
My niece and nephew will always be my Valentines as long as they want to be. I truly love sending them care packages and being able to have a positive association with the holiday. Heart pajamas, cards, and candy is always a homerun for little ones. I have no idea how we will celebrate once they are older. For now, it is a lot of fun. Last year, I bought my niece these matching pajamas. They call them Auntie pajamas and always wear a pair when I am visiting and love to match.
