Can you believe we’re a couple of weeks away from Valentine’s Day? This is the first time I’ve had a significant other for V-Day in 5 years, so I’ll have to admit: I’m a little rusty at picking out gifts for him. However, gifts for myself and gal pals? That’s something I’ve mastered over the years! 

I’ve gotten a few mailers from some of my favorite brands that would make perfect Valentines Day gift ideas this year. This new Caudalie Premier Cru Serum and these pretty little pair of Kendra Scott earrings from their Spring 2018 collection have been fabulous new additions to my closet and beauty counter. My birthday is two weeks after Valentine’s Day, so in the past, I’ve asked my boyfriends at the time not to make too big of a deal for V-Day. I usually like to go out to dinner and maybe catch a movie. This year, we’re going to Paris in March, so we’re not going to be exchanging gifts this year, but here are a few Valentines Day gift ideas if you are exchanging gifts with your gal pal, mom, or boyfriend this year!

Sleep Mask | Phone Case | Hanky Panky Set
Lip Duo | Pajama Set | Perfume
Love Letters Bag | Instax Camera | Mug
Bracelet | Rose Colored Sunglasses

Even though I now have a boyfriend, I still plan on keeping the Galentine’s Day tradition strong and exchange some smaller gifts with my gal pals. These are also great picks if you just want to treat yourself this season — no shame in that! I just scooped up an Instax Camera for Christmas, but I had no idea you could get it on sale at all times if you purchase it from Nordstrom Rack. This camera is a big hit at parties and on trips, so I’d highly recommend it! Other things I’m loving are these rose-colored glasses, this pajama set and this love letters bag (if I weren’t saving up for Paris, this would be a gift for myself!)
