Valentine's Day is one of the most challenging "holidays" in terms of gifting. Whether you're gifting your significant other (guys, listen up), friends, or family you want it to be something thoughtful, yet simple - something that's bound to put a smile on her face. If you have a beauty lover in your life, follow my simple (but genius) gift edit for the most perfect little something that she only dreamed you'd get her. You really can't go wrong with one of these.

A DREAMY CANDLE - There are so many amazing candles on the market that are bound to make any living space smell dreamy. When it comes to a gift everyone will love, this is where it's at. I'm not sure who wouldn't be happy receiving a home fragrance...especially when it's luxe and comes in a reusable glass jar. My favorites for gifting are from Diptyque (you knew that was coming), Byredo, Le Labo, Antica Farmacista, Maison Margiela Replica, and Lafco. But, if you really want to take the guesswork out of choosing altogether, Diptyque usually launches a limited edition candle just in time for the holiday. This year it's called Rosaviola; it smells of roses, lipstick, and creamy leather and comes packed in a pink frosted jar designed by Olympia Le Tan. This one is something special... 

A NEW FRAGRANCE - Special occasions deserve special fragrances. They're one of the best ways to make a memory last - every time you spray the scent you'll be instantly brought back. I love changing up my fragrances for this reason exactly and what's more appropriate than a lipstick-inspired scent for Valentine's Day? Maison Margiela Replica Lipstick On is the perfect finishing touch to any date night look. It smells of beautifully scented rice powder, iris, lipsticks, and warm vanilla. Beware...this scent is seriously addictive. 

A SWEET TREAT - Macarons. From Ladurée. Need I say more? (If you can't get to a store try ordering some uniquely delicious sweets from Sugarfina.)

A LUXE LIPSTICK - Lipstick, you ask? Yes. There's nothing more universally loved, yet personal in the beauty world. Make a woman's eyes light up when unwrapping a luxurious tube of the stuff. She'll feel like you read her mind and won't be able to wait to wear the new shade that same night. Tom Ford, Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury, NARS, and Giorgio Armani are always a good idea.

Happy Shopping!
