The Best Valentine's Day Beauty & Makeup Gifts for Her
Chocolates and flowers are lovely, of course, but beauty and makeup are the gifts that keep on giving. Perfume, body care, makeup, skincare: these gifts last a lot longer than a box of chocolates, which are usually gone within a couple of days... OK, who are we kidding - we mean minutes.
We know that shopping for your other half isn't always easy, especially when it comes to something as personal as beauty products. But let’s face it, we all like a good pamper and we guarantee that one of these beautifying Valentine's Gifts for her are going to sweep her off her feet come February 14th.
VALENTINE'S FRAGRANCE GIFTS
Probably the trickiest thing to buy for someone else since our preferences can be super specific when it comes to fragrances, but perfume is a great gift if you can get it right. Check out the notes of the perfumes your special someone tends to wear and pick something that matches, or of course, replace one of her favourites. If a single bottle of perfume, however pricy it might be, doesn't seem like 'enough' of a gift, then we definitely recommend grabbing a set mixed with body care or home fragrance products in the matching scent.
If you're totally at a loss or your partner is pretty easy-going about their fragrance choices, here are a few of our own favourites that are loved by millions.
Nuxe Prodigieux Floral Eau De Parfum£43.81 £45.00 (3% off)
Give the gift of a beautiful aroma with this must-have Nuxe perfume. This feminine fragrance is a great Valentine’s Day gift for a loved one who needs to update their collection. It contains an irresistible blend of grapefruit, magnolia and white musk.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau De Toilette£64.50 £68.00 (6% off)
If she loves fresh and summery scents, you'll definitely want to grab her a bottle of this pure, classic Marc Jacobs fragrance. It has notes of wild strawberry, grapefruit, cedarwood and gardenia, housed in a cute daisy-topped bottle as a bonus.
Versace Crystal Noir Eau De Toilette Gift Set£79.99 £83.55 (5% off)

In addition to the full-size fragrance, she'll get a handy travel-sized version to carry with her wherever she goes, plus a shower gel and body lotion!
HOME SPA VALENTINE'S GIFTS
Products that help your special someone create a spa-like experience at home are NEVER unwelcome. Not everyone likes makeup or perfume, or even chocolate (though we can't imagine a life without chocolate), but everyone likes relaxing me-time, right?
These products and tools are some of our go-tos for taking some time away for ourselves and pampering mind, body and soul. Choose one, two or all of them for that lucky lady in your life.

We don't know about you, but we'd definitely be lovestruck if someone gifted us a full night of sleep in a jar!
