Valentine’s Day is weeks away and now is the time to start thinking of what to get for that special someone. Wether it’s for your mom, wife, girlfriend, sister, aunt, friend or co-worker, you better start planning now. My advice is to take your time and really pay attention to that special someone.
I’ve put together a list of gift ideas that I am sure any woman in your life would truly enjoy and appreciate.
Beats Headphones- Beats are a great gift for the fitness lover in your life. This is a gift you know she will love and use on a daily basis. Not only that but she will appreciate you thinking of the little things that will make her workouts that much better.
Take a Cooking Class- If you do your research in time, you can join a cooking class in your area. This is a special surprise for foodies. Most classes are kept small between couples so that you may enjoy your time creating a stunning three-course meal and mingle with the other couples. It’s the perfect gift and dinner in one.
Smart Battery Case- This is one of my favorites. Think about it: women use their phone all day long. There is nothing worse than wanting to take a picture of your kids or having to make a call only to realize you are on 5% battery. I have the Apple Smart Battery Case and it has been a life saver.
Kylie Cosmetics- This brand has been all the hype since it launched last year so why not surprise her with some goodies from Kylie Cosmetics? You can always get a Sephora gift card, but the key here is to think outside the box and give her something she won’t expect.
Spa Gift Certificate- Who doesn’t love a good massage? This is a gift idea that will never go wrong. Give the gift of pampering and relaxation. You can always make it extra special by adding a manicure and pedicure to go with that massage. Trust me you will make her day!
Designer Shoes- Ever heard the saying chocolate is good, but shoes are carb-free? If you really want to splurge on her for Valentine’s day you will never go wrong with a pair of designer shoes. The Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps are a winner! She will literally love you for the rest of your life.
Camera/ Lens- Moms and women in general love taking pictures. A DSLR camera would make an incredible gift. There’s an article that says that women have triple the amount of pictures on their phone than men. It sounds crazy but I actually have 3,000 pictures in my phone as i’m writing this (yikes!). If she already has a camera, a new lens would be a great alternative. Lenses could make all the difference in the kind of pictures she wants to take.
Take a Painting Class- Surprise her after dinner with a painting session at Painting with a Twist. You will be able to spend some quality time together, painting and sipping on wine. This is a perfect gift not only for couples, but it’s an experience you can enjoy with friends as well.
Pandora Charm- Pandora has a variety of charms for that special someone. These make beautiful gifts because every charm translates a special moment in someone’s life.
Roses and Chocolates- If all else fails, you can always go with the classic roses and chocolates. Make it interesting; send them to her job, or have them delivered to her before your date. While we find it romantic if you come home with roses, something about receiving them while you are not present is more significant.
