10 Valentine's Day Gift Ideas For Her

1.) Beauty Box Subscription - Julep Maven, Glossybox, Memebox, Ipsy, Birchbox...there are soOo many beauty subscriptions out there.  Sign her up for a month or three or a year!  Links are down below:

Use my referral link & promo code to get the first box free: http://www.julep.com/rewardsref/index/refer/id/35573/
AND type in unique invitation code: 2739121
Sign up for GLOSSYBOX by using my referral link:

New to the scene and continues to sell out super quick.  If your girl is adventurous and would like to try Korean beauty products, this is the box for her!  The 8th, 9th, and 10th boxes are being sold as a set. http://us.memebox.com/Product/Detail/view/pid/3003/cid/80
(You get $7 points for ordering your first box, $5 points as a welcome gift and $5 more promo points if you email hi@memebox.com and write Jennifer Yu referred me - http://www.youtube.com/jenncyu ...that's $17 points total the your girl can use for a future box or products on the memebox website.)

I'm not a huge fan of Ipsy because their products are very hit or miss, but it's cheaper ($10) per month.  http://www.ipsy.com

Another $10 per month beauty box, but there's always a wait list for Birchbox.  For this reason, I would go with one of the other options first.  http://www.birchbox.com

2.) Candy & Flowers - but put your own spin on it!  Go to a flea market or a thrift store like Goodwill and buy a decorative candy dish or container to put her favorite candy in.  And instead of buying flowers...maybe a flowering plant?  Or herb plant if she cooks a lot.  It's more practical and ecofriendly.

3.) Spice Rack or Artisan Oils - This is perfect for a girl who loves to cook!  I love the acrylic spice racks from The Container Store.  And don't get me started on what truffle oil can do for food!
4.) Monogram - As I mentioned in the '10 Valentines Day Gift Ideas For Him' post, J.Crew can add monogram to most anything.  Being a woman myself, I would really love a monogrammed baseball cap or monogrammed jeans from J.Crew!
Accessories at jcrew.com

5.) Tickets - Like men, women love activities too, so check to see who's coming to town!

6.) Lingerie - Some people think this is tacky, but I think it's a win-win for both of you.  Buying lingerie can be awkward, but it's worth it, is it not?
7.) Gift Basket - fill it with candles, sweets, nail polish, lotion...etc.  Anything that will make her feel pretty and feminine and loved.

8.) Pamper Her - set up an appointment for her to get a manicure or pedicure.  Massages and facials are wonderful but they're more expensive.  Or you can buy some oils and light some candles to create an home spa and pamper her yourself.

9.) Jewelry - I don't mean expensive jewelry.  Just something small and meaningful.  Check out etsy.com for great gifts like this dainty initial ring.  An initial necklace would be fantastic too.  You can order an additional pendant so she'll have her initial and your initial on the same necklace.
10.) Just be cute - Gifts are always welcome, but with the holiday wallet pangs still lingering, maybe the last thing either of you guys need to do is to exchange another gift.  All a girl really needs is a cute note.  Maybe a cute note for every hour of the Valentine's Day day?  Or maybe she's a breakfast in bed kind of girl?  Just be thoughtful!  If she gets upset with you for being simple and not going all out...you may want to re-evaluate your relationship.

I tried to make this Valentine's Day list different from the men's list, but there are a couple of repeats.  I hope these ideas help and good luck on your gift search!  Have a great Valentine's Day!
