Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and with it comes all the chocolate boxes, prix-fixe to-go menus, and stuffed teddy bears our hearts and stomachs can handle. If you’re someone who likes to give presents on February 14, perhaps instead of buying a pricey bouquet that will die in a couple of days or trying to find the least cheesy card in the store, why not give the gift of beauty this year? That way, you’re gifting something that not only looks lovely but will also bring a little love into the recipient’s daily routine.
Take Charlotte Tilbury’s Hyaluronic Happikiss tinted lip balms, for example, which dole out a rich, creamy color while it hydrates, or Smashbox’s curated makeup kits for each astrological sign that comes with a love forecast. Diptyque’s limited-edition candle, on the other hand, features one of the coolest prints we’ve ever seen from the iconic fragrance brand, while Love Beauty and Planet partnered with East Olivia to create a fun take on a classic love note.
We rounded up these — and so much more — for a roundup of romantic and chic beauty gift ideas that are perfect, whether you’re buying a treat for someone you adore or simply showing yourself some much-needed TLC.
