Cute Valentine’s Day Gifts Ideas

It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Christmas but we are well into February and it’s time to talk about love. My husband and I just got back from Europe (check out my Instagram feed for photos) so right now we are more interested in recouping from jet lag and getting back into our daily routine.

He actually called while I was writing this article and asked me to be ready by 4 pm. I have no idea what he has planned but spending time together never gets old.

In my teens and early 20’s I expected my boyfriends to pull out all the stops on Valentine’s Day. Nowadays I don’t care very much about dinner reservations, expensive flowers that I’ll surely kill or big teddy bears that will sit in a corner collecting dust. My hubby is always surprising me with spontaneous dinner dates, romantic outings and luxury vacations. Everything we do together is fun, memorable and special so we don’t really need a specific day to celebrate our love. I am totally content snuggling up in bed, watching Netflix, eating pizza and falling into a blissful junk food coma.

Even if you don’t have big plans tonight, you can still buy yourself a little treat. Makeup is always a great gift because it doesn’t wilt and it won’t make you gain weight.

Avon’s lipsticks are usually under $10.00 and the Queen of Hearts Collection is beautiful! The colorful tubes are decorated with pretty feminine artwork and the satiny pigments drench your pout in kissably soft color. The shades I have are Red Hot and Berry Romantic. Both are creamy, lightweight, moisturizing and vibrant but if you plan to do a lot of smooching, you will need to reapply.

If you’re more of a lip gloss kind of girl, this little compact might be more your style. The lips are filled with small heart cut outs and inside there are two sheer shades.

The texture is quite sticky but it stays put and locks in moisture to prevent dryness. This is a nice gift for anyone who is obsessed with adorable gloss.

If you’re planning a sexy bubble bath, the Be Mine Conversation Bath Bomb ($8.99) is sure to get the party started.

Arbonne also has some sassy lip colors to put you in the mood. The Glossed Over Lip Gloss in the shade Cardinal ($32.00) makes your pout appear bright, plump and sensual. The smooth, non-tacky formula contains a moisturizing hydro-lipid water layer that helps the pigment disperse evenly for longer wear and loads of nourishment with no smearing. The color is sheer yet vivid so I often use it to refresh my lipstick.

Available at and through independent consultants.

Subtle pinky-nudes are very trendy so you might want to get your hands on Arbonne’s Double Take Matte and Shine Lip Duo ($41.00). The creamy matte side is called Petunia and the color is infused with mineralized clay which gives it a highly saturated velvety finish. At the other end you have Hydrangea – a flattering nude that can be worn alone or applied over the matte. Both textures are hydrating, comfortable and gorgeous on every skin tone. Arbonne also sells retractable lip pencils ($32.00) that define and accentuate.

Tonight I’m going for a bold red lip, shimmery gold eye shadow and dramatic jewelry. Have fun and stay warm!
