Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, but it’s still not too late to get a few last-minute gifts for your best friends. Whether they’re into beauty and fragrances or bags and jewelry, we’ve got you covered. But these sweet treats aren’t just for your girlfriends. Take a little time to treat yourself to one (or two) of these gifts. After all, you deserve a little extra love this Valentine’s Day, Super Mom.
Not many beauty brands can say that their products are affordable, let alone 100% vegan and cruelty-free, but Pacifica is all three. Known for their soft hand creams and intoxicating perfumes, the all-natural company also has a line of cosmetics, including a few love-inspired products perfect for V-Day. At $10 a pop, the Power of Love Lipsticks are perfect for gifting or even treating yourself. We especially love the shade Super Love, a true blue red that makes your teeth look whiter.
Adding to their already enticing selection of scents, Pacifica has released Persian Rose, a blend of Bulgarian rose, violet, myrhh, and fruits. Bonus: the packaging has an old world feel, so the perfume will look just as pretty as it smells sitting on your vanity.
Small, sleek bags are trending right now, but finding a purse that’s the perfect mix of chic and cheap is not so easy. This vegan pocketbook from Angela Roi is the best of both of both worlds. Perfect for toting day and night, the V Chain Cross-body bag in red will add a pop of color to even your most neutral outfits. We especially love the removable gold chain and magnetic closures for safekeeping.
Ahhh jewelry. Is there any gift more Valentine’s Day-appropriate than a sparkly ring? We don’t think so. Of course, jewelry doesn’t come cheap, which is why Chamilia sterling silver stackable rings are an absolute steal. Featuring sweet text message-inspired phrases around the bands, the rings can be worn together or on a chain, as seen in the above picture.
Who says you can’t be your own Valentine this holiday? Give yourself (and your best girlfriends if you’re feeling generous) a sweet but sexy underwear set from Naja, a lingerie company dedicated to hiring single moms and women who are the heads of their households. No matter your style, you’ll find something that strikes your fancy. Along with hiring women in need, Naja is also committed to helping the environment; more than 50% of their products are made from recycled materials.
