Valentine's Day Gifts for Her
Fine jewelry isn’t always practical when little ones are in the mix. The brilliant baubles from Anjie + Ash, made especially for mamas with teething babies, are fashionable and functional. Constructed from food-grade silicone, this bold cuff can double as a chewable distraction for babies when you’re out and about.
Toss the rubber ducks and floating boats out of the way and reimagine what the word “bathtime” can mean. Infused with CBD, this trio of botanical bath salts from Foria Wellness are each formulated to stimulate both body and mind and awaken the senses for intimate moments. And because a woman’s sexual wellness is at the forefront of every Foria product, these salts are free of any icky, irritating ingredients that spell out something the opposite of sexy. No chemicals, fragrances, additives or synthetic anything.
Cocktails (or mocktails) on your Valentine’s Day menu? The awesome mixes from WithCo make shaking up a signature drink a simple as possible. Simply mix with your alchohol or base of choice (gin is the perfect pair for Bouquet, but it’s equally at home with soda water) and the evening is instantly more fancy.
Like the perfect pair of jeans, these simple-but-stunning diamond studs are an instant signature piece you’ll want to wear on the daily. Marrying a diamond stud with a 14K gold disc they’re luxe without being showy.
If you’ve spent more than five minutes on Tik Tok, you’ve probably stumbled upon Wonderskin–the innovative lip color that’s making us rethink everything we know about lipstick. The two-step product starts as a metallic purple gloss that can be left on for 10-45 seconds. Then, spritz with the activator spray and peel. Voila! Perfectly colored lips. The stain won’t budge (even under masks!) and lasts for hours. And if that’s not sorcery enough, the gorgeous colors manage to work on every skin tone.
What’s more romantic than keeping someone dry in the rain? And while we do love a gentlemanly offer of a jacket to hold over our heads, a pretty umbrella is even better. Like this floral beauty from Rifle Paper Co. which not only makes a dreary day more colorful, but is compact enough to carry around just in case.
If you’re more of a wine person, check out the almost-too-pretty-to-drink (but so delicious you absolutely have to) wine sampler from In Good Taste. Their mini bottle flights feature wines from around the world, presented in the most fun and approachable way. Explore new flavors and varieties and maybe even discover a new favorite! They also offer virtual tastings which can make an at-home date night a little more exciting. A major plus these days, isn’t it?
Little rituals can make all the difference. This stunning little diffuser set is designed to sit on your desk, bathroom counter, nightstand–anywhere you need a little aromatherapy pick-me-up. Just add some drops of the essential oil to the ceramic disc that’s nested inside the quartz dish and take a moment to feel calm and collected.
Bringing their gorgeous glow to anywhere from the living room to the bedroom, Everlasting Candle Co. has created what might be the perfect modern candle. The sets include a simple glass vessel and three wick-filled metal “candles” which absorb the included clean-burning oil which isn’t exactly “everlasting”—but close.
Foria gets two mentions because it’s too hard to pick a favorite. Their Intimacy Sex Oil with CBD has permanent placement on my nightstand (a statement that sounds bold, but in its amber bottle, it looks much like every other body oil and serum I have laying around.) Unlike typical lubes, it’s slick without being sticky (a sensation I personally can’t stand) and dare I say, even keeps sensitive skin and landscaping moisturized and happy. The inclusion of CBD helps to relax and enhance arousal, and some even report that it helps make sex less painful when battling things like endometriosis and other pelvic and genital pain conditions. What’s sexier than that?
Ok, maybe this is sexier than that. The Vibe from Maude is so aesthetically pleasing it’s on the shelf at the MOMA Store and so pleasing in general, that I’ve considered buying back up to ensure I’ll never be without it. Like most, it has three speeds which cover a wide enough range of power, but what it has has that others lack is a feminine softness that changes everything. The tip is somewhat flexible so it feels comfortable and gentle without being clinical or unforgiving. It’s also quiet enough that you can use it without worrying you’ll wake light sleepers—a benefit which can’t be underestimated.
Infuse date nights with excitement and fresh energy with this fun and beautiful game designed by relationship and intimacy guru Esther Perel. Through prompt cards that set the mood and direction (ex. “Share something crazy”) and story cards that provide the first line of an answer (ex. “A phone number I need to delete…”) you’re guaranteed to learn something new and thrilling no matter how many times you’ve heard their best stories. Get ready for instant memories and enhanced connection.
Don’t get me wrong, fresh flowers are absolute perfection, but Instagram has made the case for dried arrangements–and they’re not the tacky bathroom decor you might be envisioning. This soft stunner from Urban Stems brings all the organic spa vibes to your powder room or boudoir and lasts for months, no water necessary.
Scarves and hats are nice, but we’re loving this contemporary twist on cashmere accessories. Cuyana’s impossibly soft 100% cashmere bandana is a dash of timeless elegance that’s not only beautiful but sustainably produced as well.
If your favorite blanket, your coziest sweater and your utilitarian robe all had a baby, this would be it. From the cloud-soft experts at Sunday Citizen, the Nube Ribbed Long Cardigan is made for lounging but if you dash out to pick up while still wearing it, we wouldn’t blame you.
Merci Maman totally crushes it when it comes to gorgeous personalized jewelry. Their impressive catalog or affordable styles features everything from simple signet rings to a Duchess-worthy charm necklace—all of which can be engraved with any title or phrase you’d like. We love this sweet two-piece pendant which can be engraved on both sides.
Corralling all the necessary travel needs is easy (and stylish!) with the new Steward Dopp Kit from Dare to Roam. Crafted with their hardworking antimicrobial and water-resistant fabric, you can plop it on any bathroom counter without worry and it’s so roomy you don’t have to make too many tough calls when packing. Win win!
In the doldrums of February, there’s nothing like a warm drink with someone you love. From hot cocoa with the littles to a mug of mulled cider with fellow adults, it soothes the soul and the senses. This aromatic gift set from Spice House comes with hot cocoa mix, mulling spices, chai spices and a gorgeous Korintje Ground Cassia Cinnamon to punch up all your favorites.
As elegant as it is practical, we just adore the simple zip around wallets from Cuyana. The pebbled leather is available in a wide range of colors and can be personalized with the recipient’s initials. And as much as we love the look, we’re even more in love with their ethical manufacturing in a woman-owned factory.
Inspired by the belief that our children do not need us to be perfect, just present—this piece is the perfect gift for a bestie, or yourself. The lay-flat profile means it’s easy to wear even when you’ve got your hands in, well, everything.
For the candle obsessed bestie! Choose from one of their three signature scents—a fruity mango guava, a rich Moroccan amber and my personal favorite (which sells out on the regular) a fresh bergamot, grass, tonka bean that I want every room to smell like 24/7.
The pandemic (and let’s be real–advancing age) has made me a real puzzle connoisseur. Sitting at the table with a glass of wine, a puzzle and a podcast is one of my favorite forms of self care and at this point, I’ve done so many I have favorites–like Piecework. Each one makes me wish I could transport myself into the scene and the matte pieces are super high quality. And if podcasts while you puzzle aren’t your thing, each one has a very well curated Spotify playlist to accompany you. In fact, this one is now in my regular romantic time rotation. (I mean, they had me at Otis Redding.)
My personal request this Valentine’s Day is this absolutely incredible piece from woman-owned Catbird. Seriously, I can’t stop thinking about it. Designed by Laurie Fleming, the magical piece puts you in the artist’s seat by choosing each of the included elements. From beautifully detailed roses and ranunculus to sapphire sparkled irises, your selections are arranged into a sentimental garden that’s one of a kind, just for you. Swoon. 😍
