Let’s be honest – when it comes to gift-giving, most men are clueless. So if you haven’t already dropped some major hints, don’t be surprised when your man comes home with a tired box of Russell Stover chocolates.
That’s why I am an staunch advocate of buying treats for oneself on Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re in a long-term relationship or presently unattached, there’s no shame in purchasing these lovely gifts for yourself.
Here are some Spoiled Pretty picks:
Fresh Cannabis Rose Eau de Parfum: Fresh’s newest fragrance is the ultra-sensual and completely intoxicating floral counterpart to the highly popular Cannabis Santal Collection. Top notes burst with the captivating aroma of Bulgarian roses infused with pomegranate flower and Italian bergamot. An alluring blend of cannabis accord, sheer jasmine, and rich dark chocolate make the heart of this sultry scent truly intoxicating, while base notes of white musk, patchouli, and oolong tea leave a lasting sensual finish. ($75).
Lush Silky Perfect Match: Includes Lush’s very popular Silky Underwear solid perfume with jasmine and vetivert and their equally popular Alkmaar soap in a special heart shape. Making these perfect matches even more precious, the packaging is 100% biodegradable. In fact, if you plant the box with someone special, you can watch your love grow – literally. The entire box contains real seeds and when you plant it you will grow beautiful wild flowers to enjoy together. ($19.95)
Kissable Couture Valentine’s Collection: Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Kissable Couture adds three more shades to its repertoire. New colors include Fantasies (Red Rose), Dreams (Soft Pink, Very Airy, Truly a Hint of Color), and Bliss (Mauve, Rose Pink). ($22 each)
Noodle & Boo All of my Heart: This heart-shaped soap is not only fun, but has a rich and creamy lather that gently cleans delicate skin leaving it soft and supple. Made with 100% pure vegetable oil, it does not contain the dehydrating detergents or irritating surfactants in most soap today. Wholesome oatmeal and aloe carefully soothe, while sweet almond oil and nutrient-rich milk protein moisturize skin. ($15)
Suzanne Aux Bains Relaxing Organic Massage Oil: Pamper your skin with this natural, nourishing massage oil with a captivating scent. This soothing massage oil softens the body while relaxing the mind for a spa experience right in your bathroom. Perfect for all skin types, especially dry or sensitive skin, this quick-absorbing, golden-hued oil from France is certified organic. It helps ease muscle tension with Jasmine, Mandarin, Ylang Ylang, Chamomile and Lavender essential oils, while a combination of organic Apricot, Sesame and Jojoba essential oils protect and soften the skin. Kirstin, the beauty behind Saffron Rouge, says it’s her favorite body oil. ($37)
Philosophy Candy Hearts: Contains three mouth-watering flavored lip shines with sweet-nothings written right on the tubes. Say “be mine” with melon daiquiri, “ask me” with vanilla birthday cake, and “love you” with raspberry sorbet. ($25)
