When it comes to Valentine’s Day I honestly do not expect a gift from my man. He may surprise me with flowers (which I love) or an amazing bottle of champagne (which I love even more) but in general we are not the over the top Valentine gift sort of couple. Probably has a lot to do with the fact that our anniversary is 9 days after Valentine’s…which is when we do it up right with a fabulous night out for 2.
That being said I LOVE to give sweet little surprises to my girlfriends. I don’t do it every year…but sometimes you just see something and think “so and so would love that.” It’s purely a selfish act because there is nothing better than making someone’s day with a tube of lipstick or bottle of nail polish. (And those boys think we are difficult to make happy…..pffffff)
Cosmetics are almost always a no fail gift option for girls. The companies know this too because they’ve got them all packaged up like a box of Valentine’s chocolates. Here are some of my favorite beauty products to surprise your best gal pal with:
1Forever 21 heart eyelash curler/2Too Faced chocolate bon bons palette/3Sephora heart-to-heart makeup sponges/4Marc Jacobs enamored hi-shine nail polish in hot pink/5Fresh sugar tinted lip treatment SPF15/6Everlasting Locks style saving shower cap/7Too Faced love flush long-lasting 16 hour blush
Which one would you love to give? (Or get…I’m really digging that shower cap!)
