Valentines gifts

Why, oh why, do we care about Valentine’s Day? It’s simple, really. We’re women, and we adore gifts. So why wait for your beau to figure it out? Why not gift YOURSELF this year? No matter how indie, or trendy, you may be… we are all enamoured with lovely things. We like to look good, feel good, and smell great. So whether you’re single or loved up this Valentine’s Day, pamper yourself a bit and make the holiday special with these ‘self love’ gift ideas, created by women, for women.

Kissably Soft Skin

Juice Beauty was founded by a dynamic duo out of California who believe that the organic lifestyle not only revolves around what we eat, but also what is absorbed into the body. Melissa and Karen are educating women about the long term benefits that healthy, organic products can have not only personally, but globally. The entire Juice Beauty line is made up of certified organics containing no toxins or parabens, while still utilizing the power of science to ensure results. Try the recently launched Green Apple Collection for an amazing assortment of products for every skin type.

Laidbare, a brand new line of bath and body essentials from Sarah Silvester, is ethically produced from all-natural components, and leaves skin feeling silky to the touch. These eco-aware products use only the best ingredients from living plants, making Laidbare the perfect choice for women seeking organic alternatives that pack a punch. I highly recommend Laidbare Organic Shea Body Butter, which contains fresh rosehip, carrot and avocado oils. Absolutely the only choice for perfectly kissable, moisturized skin…just in time for Valentine’s cuddles.

Treats for the Sweet

The girls at Tickled Pink have my vote for best all around great girly swag. Just browsing the TP site is loads of fun, and the products are whimsical and feminine, with lots of sweet choices like Bubblemint Crème and Red Velvet Cake. Mia makes all of her inventory by hand, using concentrated oils for maximum effect; the blends are amazing! Tickled Pink offers an extensive catalogue of scents to choose from, which can then be incorporated into body mists, butters, or even perfume oils. If you’re buying for the first time, stop in at the sample shoppe so you can try a bit of everything. Why settle?

Also, this just in from Astrid at… limited edition scents for the month of February! Blooddrop is offering a FREE Droplettes bottle of your choice on orders of $35 or more (even better if you’re in the UK) and the new blends look absolutely delectable. Honey, strawberry, milk chocolate and more, all the sorts of things you’re craving at this time of year. Plus, with the launch of the spanking new site, Astrid has added a few new scents that will be available year round, and some new bath and body items as promised. I’ve already broken down and bought a bottle.who am I to pass up a deal?

Of course that’s not all – that’s just it for now. Happy shopping, and have a smashing Valentine’s Day!
