It’s another season of the year when gift-sellers will experience another rush! February is just some weeks away and Valentine’s day is fast approaching! A lot of people call it a month of love and see it as a time to act out the love they have been saving a long time for a loved one. But I don’t see the need to overhype that day! To me, love can be displayed any day not just on a particular day!
But since we all look forward to that day to have fun with a loved one(s), then it’s cool we have a gift or two to exchange that day! If you want to skip the regular flowers, cards and frames (which you should, lol), there are still amazing items you can give her and she’ll really love them.
Yeah, we all know that the best gifts come from the heart, not from any store and really not determined by how pricey it is. It is not the gift but the feelings that actually matter. I agree money can buy gifts, but it’s not enough to bring a smile on someone’s face! They need to feel that love dripping from the gift no matter how little.
Now if we talk of the reality, buying a present for the people you love can be a pain in the ass. You will find yourself asking what if they don’t like the gift? Will they ever use it? What if they get the wrong impression? What if it’s not good enough? So many what ifs! These questions do cross our minds; but like I still say, the love behind the gift counts more.
When I say people you love, I don’t necessarily mean that special one sitting right in the middle of your heart! In this case, I’m talking about your mum, sister, female friend, female neighbours, female colleagues or even female classmates. Those people you keep close and you just feel nice around them.
So here is a list of “somethings” you could get for her (mum, sister, girlfriend, other female friends or even yourself if you are a girl!) on that day. These gifts can be bought by anyone and given to a female friend. Which means, whether you are male or female, you can pick an item off the list and give to that loved one without any awkward feeling. They aren’t expensive items so even though you are on a budget you can still pick something lovely and decent. Plus, these items are loved and appreciated by most girls and some of them have agreed to not minding receiving such from their partners, family or friend.
So, let’s dive in! Here are some Valentine gift items I suggest you should try getting for her without going overboard:
Some girls may think this is crazy, but others have come out to say they are yet to receive such from their partner or any other friend. You can skip the flowers, cards and frames at this time and get her something fancy to store her makeup items. Well, unless you are sure she just got one very recently. These makeup bags are fancy, colourful, light, portable and easy to be loved by the receiver!
Even if she is not the makeup type of person, the bag can still come in handy for storing toiletries, gadgets and other little items. You can pair this up with a piece of simple jewellery or chocolates if you know her taste.
Unless your partner, mum, friend, sister etc, is not the makeup type, you would have won yourself a medal getting her a/some makeup items!
Girls love makeup (fact), girls love people who give them the makeup more (proven)! So if you have ever peeped into her makeup purse/box/bag and noticed what she likes using, then you will succeed in making her fly when you present her with new and improved items she can use to replace her old or finished ones! But this can get tricky, in some cases, you have to know what matches her skin, lip, eyes and all that so you must have been that close to her to know all these. Or you can just ask her in an unsuspecting way if you aren’t sure (wink).
A lot of girls love getting these as presents! Buy a girl any GOOD facial care product and you have just made her day (or maybe her month or even as long as the product lasts). She will appreciate that you care this much and will never forget the gesture. Try any of these essential oils for a start:
These oils are great facial products and can do a lot from moisturizing, clearing blemishes, preventing wrinkles, smoothening and tightening the face. You can go in with some flowers to spice it up when presenting any of these oils to her.
To cut down cost of buying different items, you can go for a set and also blow her mind, you can get her a complete set of some makeup items. They are usually like five (5) or less/more items packed in a kit. She will definitely love this as the kit gives a variety of options she’ll like to explore.
Any of these makeup sets would go well as a Valentine gift:
These makeup sets come in handy if she does a lot of makeup or is a makeup artist. There are just a lot of colours in the kit to choose from and she’ll enjoy exploring them. A personal frame too can go with any of these kits.
Sure it’s the time to show love to people who matter to you and so nothing looks too small or big in their eyes. In fact, your love may be all they need! Whatever you want to do, just do it as there is no right or wrong way to show love this season or give a gift. She’ll still appreciate you all the same.
Whew!!! That’s all I can put down for now! Just go crazy and think of something your loved one(s) will go excited about when they receive the gift and would definitely appreciate!
