Popular Gifts for Valentine's Day

Beauty gifts for Valentine's Day are all about pampering your special someone. Whether it's a treat to a professional service such as a manicure or a gift of selected quality products to pamper your loved one, there are a number of beauty supplies to make your gal--or guy--feel special on Valentine's Day--or any other time of the year!


Special Valentine's Day Scents

Special scents for the body are another great beauty gift for Valentine's Day. Coconut, lavender, and vanilla are all timeless scents enjoyed by just about everyone. Shop for body lotions and special butters, along with perfumes with unique scents.


Products for Hands and Feet

You can certainly purchase a certificate for a manicure or pedicure for your special someone. A fancy French manicure--or even a simple manicure--can sure make a lady feel better. I've had only one manicure in my life, and, yes, it definitely felt like a treat.

I've only had one pedicure in my life, too. Although I am not much of a foot person, the pedicure was a unique gift that I appreciated. Pedicures aren't really my favorite thing, but I know that a lot of people get them regularly. A pedicure is a special splurge for most women, and perhaps some of the men out there, too.

Other gifts for the hands and feet include aloe-infused socks and gloves, as well as special lotions for hands and feet. These products can be bought in store or online at special discounted prices. Pampering the feet and hands is a popular luxury for many.

For men? Perhaps men are not into excessive pampering of their hands and feet; however, many could use a heavy-duty lotion for dry hands in the cold months.

Spa and Bath Items

Even though many people take showers over baths on a regular basis, they might still enjoy baths as a special treat. Valentine's Day is a perfect holiday to give a bath gift that can be used for a special time of relaxation. Special bubble bath liquids, bath crystals, and moisturizing bath oils are perfect to fill a gift basket with a bath theme. Add body scrubs, scrubbing loofahs, and scented soaps to complete the collection.

Coconut oil is all the rage now. You can easily find specialty coconut baskets with coconut butter lotions, shower soap, specialty body scrub, and even coconut lip butter for soft lips.

Whatever bath ensemble you decide upon, you might add in a CD of soft music to add to the special, romantic feel of a luxurious spa or bath.


Beauty Gifts to Avoid for Valentine's Day

Yes, there are definitely some beauty products to avoid for purchase as a Valentine's Day gift for that special someone. Don't buy anti-wrinkle or aging spot cream, for instance. On a day about love, avoid reminding your sweetie that he or she is getting older.

Definitely stay away from the cream for age spots and the firming cream for sagging skin. Stick to the positive. Purchase gifts that pamper such as lotions and bathing implements. Look for comforting moisturizers, oils, and scents that enhance the already present beauty in your valentine.

Corny, yes, but, hey, it's Valentine's Day!

      Vicki - I've got , to say, I love your tip on what not to buy - anti-wrinkle or age spot cream! Can you imagine getting that as a gift? I think perhaps you should put together a complete list of what not to buy. I used to work in retail and around Valentine's Day there were certainly a lot of guys in desperate need of help.

      Great suggestions. You are so right. Valentine's Day is not the time for age spot or sagging skin creams.

      Kathryn--Oh!!!! Anti-cellulite cream! Now that would be the worst!! haha

      I loved the section about what not to buy! Buying anti-wrinkle cream for a woman would be as bad as buying really strong deodorant for a man- or maybe worse. Anti-cellulite cream would also be a terrible thing to buy. That would not go over very well!

      Thanks, Kelly! Yes, positive, positive. Although some anti-wrinkle cream might be kind of nice to have. It's pretty expensive. Haha!

      I love the way you thought to recommend what NOT to gift as well, so many wouldn't think of this.. I liked the commercial too. My daughter wouldn't use anything other than 'Body Shop' products unless it was natural.

      Thanks, Bill! I really liked the commercial, too. It was so natural, embracing natural beauty. :-)
