I have always had a love-hate relationship with Valentine’s Day. 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. Enjoy these Valentine’s Day gift ideas.
Diptyque Candles are a classic French gift for yourself or a friend. The Tuberose and Rose candles are two 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 an excellent 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 bit of pampering, the Lake Pajamas are so cozy. I wear mine with these UGG slippers, 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. Also, I love the Betty in Rosewood. This style is so cute. I own it in three colors.
I love the quality and designs of Cuyana. These small leather items make a great gift for her, him, or a friend. You can monogram the pieces to make them extra special. I have been collecting their pieces over the years and use them for travel and home.
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 early February to ensure 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 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 is in two colors (sized up to 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 genuinely 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 I always wear a pair when visiting and love to match. For the little one who loves Paris, these are too cute!
