Valentine's Day is almost upon us and it means celebrating love in all its forms. Whether that's going out on a date with your boyfriend, planning a picnic with your family, or just staying in and having a sleepover with your besties. I for one love celebrating this day and enjoy all the festivities. I send my near and dear ones chocolates and flowers to remind them of what they mean to me.
If you're all about finding love in platonic relationships then this is the perfect occasion to shower your friends with gifts and love. If they love beauty, then these budget-friendly presents would be perfect.
Who doesn't love bold, red lipstick? It's gorgeous, it's eye-catching, and it looks hella fierce. This one by MyGlamm has a matte finish and a creamy texture. It's enriched with hyaluronic acid and silicon butter which helps it glide on beautifully. If your bestie loves to rock bright lippies, this one works wonderfully.
For all your coffee-loving friends, this gift set is ideal. It's got a body polishing oil which is enriched with Vitamin E, a coffee scrub which also has coconut in it to really deep cleanse your pores, and a wooden massager to improve blood circulation and destress the body. So, instead of waking up with a shot of espresso let your bestie give her skin some caffeine love with this set.
We all talk about skincare and haircare but in the bargain, we forget to look after our lips. Especially in this cold, dry weather, it's important to nourish your lips with hydrating ingredients and this lip kit helps with that. It consists of five lip balms- vanilla, rose, strawberry, orange, and cinnamon and they smell amazing. They're enriched with Vitamin E and jojoba oil which are both nourishing ingredients. Trust us, your gal pals will love these.
This fragrance by The Body Shop has been loved by so many across the world and for good reason. It's got really uplifting notes of pink pepper, bergamot, peony, and lily that give it that fresh aroma. Perfect for the upcoming spring months, nothing says Valentine's Day quite like a fresh and floral scent.
If your best friend is a big fan of Ayurvedic skincare you can't go wrong with this little face care set. It contains pure rose water and a really gentle aloe vera cleanser. Made up of pure essential oils of rose and jasmine, this hydrates the face and soothes the skin. She can use the rose water as a toner or spritz it on her face to feel a bit refreshed. And the best part is that it works for all skin types.
For makeup addicts, this is another gift set that will make for a great V-day present. It's got two of Smashbox's iconic lipsticks, one in the shade Bawse which is a deep red colour, and the other in the shade Gula-bae which is a cool-toned pink nude lipstick. They're both lightweight and will stay on the lips all day. So, treat your BFF to this Shobhita-approved lip kit.
Since most of us are being careful and not venturing into a salon at the moment, at-home manicures are all the rage. This set of neon nail paints is great if your galentine loves changing her nail colours every now and then. There are four really fun shades that are perfect to add some brightness to these gloomy days.
So, which one are you picking up for your real soulmates?
