Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Her

February 7, 2018

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas | The Beauty Look Book

Valentine’s Day is just a week away! I’ve put together a little gift guide whether you’re looking for a little inspiration, hint ideas or something to treat yourself! A year ago this time I was still in San Diego busy packing up our loft and recovering from wisdom teeth removal. Not a fun time! As a surprise Andrew bought me the most beautiful boxed roses from Venus Et Fleur (you can see them here). They’re real roses that come in boxes that are preserved to last an entire year. I did not think it was possible but here we are a year later and they still look amazing! So many of you asked for a full year review. I did a February through August month by month snapshot. In August we started living the nomadic life and they went into a climate controlled storage unit until January. You can read all about them on their website – they stay inside the boxes and you don’t need to water them!

Today, one year later they are still in nearly perfect condition. The edges have started to become a little ragged looking but there has been zero browning and the colors have remained the same. We were a little rough with them because quite frankly we had a challenging year last year. These went through a 3,000 mile 5-day drive in the back of a moving truck (with no AC) from San Diego, California all the way to Tampa, Florida. They also survived a few more truck moves and stayed in a storage unit for several months. Both Andrew and I are truly impressed!

Byredo for Valentine’s Day

Byredo has a few fun offerings for Valentine’s Day this year including a Limited-Edition I Love You Travel Case ($120). They have a few assorted travel spray trios this season, La Selection Florale ($110) has 3 x 0.4 oz./ 12 mL in Blanche, La Tulipe and Rose of No Man’s Land. There are a few other variations including the La Selection Boisee, La Sélection Best-Sellers and a six piece set La Selection Byredo ($220) as well. Trio and travel case shown above next to a 50 mL perfume and hair perfume for scale. I’ve bought the minis before and it’s highly recommended that you purchase a case for them. I’ve had a few break in my purse without it.

Pink Treats

Three super cute pink beauty things include the Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Hair Mist, Nuvola Rosa Nail Polish and the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask mini. There are a lot of perfume brands out there that have hair perfumes to match their regular scents. I just recently tried hair mists last year and I think they’re a fun way to wear scent. Chanel Eau Tendre is a youthful bright spring scent with a mix of Grapefruit, Jasmine and White Musk. They have the perfume and other body products at a number of places but the Hair Mist is a Chanel.com exclusive.

Nuvola Rosa Le Vernis is one of the prettiest baby pinks I’ve ever tried! In case you missed it review here. And yes! I’ll be reviewing a lot of the newer launches very soon.

Glow Recipe launched two new things recently. Their Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask has been super popular and for good reason! It has the most delicious smelling watermelon scent. I’m still in the early stages of testing this. I’ve tried it 3 nights so far and it has a nice lightweight bouncy texture that doesn’t feel super thick. When I wake up skin feels noticeably softer! The two new things include a Mini Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask (shown below) and also a moisturizer version called Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer (not shown). I’ll have a more detailed review soon, but I think the Mini Watermelon Mask would make for the cutest Galentine’s Day Gift for girlfriends!

Sweet Treats

When in doubt, I don’t think you can go wrong with candy or a luxury candle. I’m the biggest junk food junkie and can never resist anything Sugarfina. They have some cute sets out for Valentine’s Day with some fun labels on the tops. The XOXO 2-Piece Candy Bento Box is $18. There’s also a 3-Piece Box for $26 and a 4-Piece Box for $34.

The best candle you can give as a gift this season (in my opinion) is the Diptyque Rose Delight which I reviewed a few weeks ago! It’s just so so pretty!

New YSL and Chanel Lip Preview

There are usually a lot of new lip products launched during this time of year. I’ve already reviewed the new Cle de Peau Beaute Radiant Lip Glosses on the blog. Two other new launches include the YSL Volupte Liquid Colour Balms and Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush. I’ll have a more detailed review in the next few days. In the meantime here’s a sneak peek of swatches in case you want to see what they look like and can’t wait.

First impressions are the YSL Volupte Liquid Colour Balm are decently pigmented for a balm! They are super cushiony but have less slip than the twist up stick balms. There is the same fruity scent. On my lips they seem to have a slight plumping effect but without any tingle, but then a lot of balms make my already full lips look fuller. #1 is supposed to be a night mask which is interesting. I haven’t tried that one yet but will report back once I do.

The Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush is a hydrating lip and cheek color. Colors are bold but once you blend it the color sheers out quite a bit for more of a stain. They feel weightless but a bit dewy. I’ll have to do more testing to do a proper review. They come with a sponge tip applicator. A more detailed review to follow as soon as I can!

    These are such great ideas! I can’t wait for your full review of the YSL Volupte Liquid Balms. I love the regular balms and the tint-in-oils, so I’m really excited!

  • Glenda February 7, 2018 at 1:11 pm

    VD was never a very important holiday for me. Nothing against it whatsoever, I think I just might not be very into holidays in general, heehe. That being said, I’m kinda excited for it this year because it will be my first ad a married woman 😛

    Also, I’m originally from Brazil, and VD there is on a totally different day and month.

    I love the selection you did, as always! Even though I’m also not into roses (flowers in general, though I like orchids), those arranges are so aesthetically pleasing!
    I want to know more about these balms too. 🙂

  • Yolennie February 7, 2018 at 1:16 pm

    OUUU those Chanel lip blushes are so pretty!!

  • satelliteoflove February 7, 2018 at 2:34 pm

    Hey Sabrina, I’m curious if you find the Chanel Chance Eau Tendre similar to Byredo’s Mojave Ghost? I got the Boise selection (wooof, that ashtray note in Black Saffron is so off-putting!), and as soon as I sprayed Mojave Ghost I was like “Whoa…Chanel Eau Tendre!”

  • talker blogger February 7, 2018 at 2:45 pm

    Noooooo ….. they are too much temptation to resist !!!

  • Maria February 7, 2018 at 3:52 pm

    We always have a romantic dinner at White Castle! You need reservations, they have red tablecloths and table service. It’s so much fun. We have a nice dinner at a nice restaurant another night, avoiding the higher prices and rushed service.

  • Lori Jenkins February 7, 2018 at 6:23 pm

    Oh it’s all so pretty Sabrina!

  • Cheryl Parker Smith February 7, 2018 at 7:27 pm

  • Petunia February 7, 2018 at 7:44 pm

    Any post that is so lovely and light pink makes me heart sing. I love the lippies on the YSL glosses. What a great touch.

  • Aracely Torres February 7, 2018 at 8:05 pm

    So many goodies! Everything seems so light and airy and makes me long for Spring! I have my eye on the Chanel polish, (the perfect baby pink hue) as well as their Coco Lip Blush in shade #414 Tender Rose.

  • Calvin F. February 7, 2018 at 8:53 pm

    Really sweet gifts, thanks for this guide.

  • so_schilly February 7, 2018 at 9:06 pm

    I caved on the rose Diptyque candle. No need to wait for Valentines day, I bought it for myself haha. I love most YSL lip products so I’m excited to try out the new lip balms!

  • Valerie Manke February 7, 2018 at 9:21 pm

    I love the Byredo travel set, I’ve been wanting to try their fragrance for so long.

    The YSL balm #10..! Whenever you include it in your pictures, I lust after that celine bracelet.

    Omg those roses are gorgeous!!

  • Liz February 7, 2018 at 10:28 pm

    I’ve always been facinated by those roses that last for a year. Now I know they’re really worth it!

  • Aidan Krainock February 7, 2018 at 10:38 pm

    Dying to try those YSLs!

  • Justine R February 7, 2018 at 10:42 pm

    I really wish the Watermelon Glow was available on Sephora Canada, because I want to try it! I couldn’t find it in store in Chicago. I am loving Rose Delight so far – I picked up the votive and the full size, so I could use one with my carousel. The roses still look nearly new – I’d never have guessed they were a year old!

  • Sanda Remakus February 7, 2018 at 11:41 pm

    My husband and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day but we always give one another gifts randomly. I can’t wait to hear what you think about the new YSL Lip balms!

  • Lisa Vandersniff February 7, 2018 at 11:44 pm

    Those roses are amazing! I am already looking forward to your review and comparison of all the new glosses.

  • C. Dang February 7, 2018 at 11:50 pm

    Those roses 🌹 look amazing!

  • Marina February 7, 2018 at 11:53 pm

    Oh! such a great list of gift! I would probably choose something from Byredo. I haven’t seen limited edition here in Australia, but will be looking forward 🙂

    I adore your roses and still can’t understand how they are surviving for the whole year!

  • Colleen P. February 8, 2018 at 12:23 am

    I am so impressed with those roses! My birthday is 2 days before Valentine’s, which I hate. Hotels are usually more expensive because of the holiday and restaurants are always so crowded. I usually end u celebrating a couple of weeks after my birthday to avoid the crowds/prices. I do enjoy the fun beauty gifts that are available! I purchased one of the Guerlain KissKiss lipsticks in the heart shape as an early birthday gift for myself. In general though, I don’t really have any special VDay traditions.

  • Candice @ Beauty Candy Loves February 8, 2018 at 12:25 am

    These are all such great ideas.

    This is definitely the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift guide. I would be so happy to receive any one of these items.

  • Laura Schmaltz February 8, 2018 at 12:31 am

    Those roses are just amazing – but the Sugarfina looks like something I need to try soon. I love candy!

  • lawler February 8, 2018 at 12:56 am

    Oh wow! I remember when you got those roses. That is so impressive. I remember really liking the variety of options Venus Et Fleur had.

    Thanks for the for-scale photo of the Byredo options. I keep hovering my finger over the order button for one of the mini sets. Anyone have a second to describe Blanche to me? I have the hair perfume of both G*psy Water and Bal D’Afrique, so I assume I’d like Blanche if it’s in a set with the other two; but you never know.

  • Catherine E K Christensen February 8, 2018 at 1:13 am

    I LOVE the new Diptique candle! (It smells amazing, but I was so in love with the packaging I am not sure it would have mattered!). Beautiful post(s)!

  • Julia February 8, 2018 at 2:06 am

    I really like the Byredo set. I wish they let you mix and match the scents of your choice, though. I love La Tulipe and want to try Bal d’Afrique.

  • Suzanne Lewinson February 8, 2018 at 2:33 am

    Those roses are beautiful. I have to check out that nail colour!

  • Andreia SPR February 8, 2018 at 4:02 am

    I would love to try the lipsticks…

  • Sofia February 8, 2018 at 6:10 am

  • roxlet February 8, 2018 at 7:33 am

    Love those roses!

  • Fortune Dushey February 8, 2018 at 8:14 am

    Those flowers are beautiful!!!
    Great ideas!

  • Cindy Krenek Arco February 8, 2018 at 8:38 am

    I’ve been contemplating the watermelon sleep mask since it debuted and kept selling out at Sephora- now they have a 250 point reward with a deluxe sample so your perspective put me over the top to adding that to my cart!

    Also, since I know you are also in Florida and have a sweet tooth, check out Peterbrooke Chocolatiers- it’s an a amazing Jacksonville based company with locations around the Southeast- I think the closest store to you would be Sarasota. Their chocolate covered popcorn is heavenly!! https://www.peterbrooke.com/about/locations/

  • Amy B February 8, 2018 at 8:50 am

    I love this gift guide! I just got the Diptyque candle for myself and it’s lovely. I’m impressed by how well your roses have survived through your moves!

  • Julie February 8, 2018 at 9:20 am

    All the beautiful pinks! I’m dying for that Chanel chance hair mist. That’s one of my favorite fragrances. I can’t imagine how amazing it would be on the hair! 😍😍😍😍

  • Amy Heffernan February 8, 2018 at 9:22 am

    The candle looks very nice.

  • pinksuzanne February 8, 2018 at 9:24 am

    This is a very luxurious post for Valentine’s gifts and I am not sure which is my favourite. The roses are just so intriguing as it is so hard to believe they can last that long.

  • Jessica February 8, 2018 at 9:28 am

    Those flowers really are the ultimate V-day gift. Beautiful colours.

  • Natalie Lebeau February 8, 2018 at 9:30 am

    Oh my.. those flowers are to die for!!! I’m also a self proclaimed candle addict! Too bad I’m super single for vday!

  • Amy L. February 8, 2018 at 9:37 am

    Those roses…unbelievable. I always hated getting roses because they died so quickly. These seem perfect then since they’ll last a whole year! (and beyond!)

  • Laurence February 8, 2018 at 9:40 am

    Lovely selection, Sabrina! I am amazed at the longevity of the flowers. You can’t go wrong with Sugarfina, one of my favorite candy company.

  • Canadawest February 8, 2018 at 10:04 am

    I sent the link for the roses to my boyfriend. I’ve never had roses that have lasted more than a week.

  • MBAMommy February 8, 2018 at 10:11 am

    The YSL liquid color balms look great! Like you might have a bit more control vs: a stick balm.. will have to see how the nude color swatches and then possibly treat myself for vday!

  • Lauren February 8, 2018 at 10:15 am

    Those roses are so cool! I hadn’t really heard of them before. I love the little lip windows on the YSL color blams plus you can see which color each one is!

  • Ericca Brock February 8, 2018 at 10:18 am

    I showed my mom these roses and they were like for 339 dollars for 49 roses they should last all year. lol

    Oh, Sabrina, those roses. I have looked into getting some myself. They are so beautiful! I loved the review you did of the Chanel Nuvola Rose Le Vernis. I purchased that one through the link on your post. I might try the Diptyque Rose Delight candle next.

  • msh111 February 8, 2018 at 10:46 am

    Looking forward to searching those new YSL in person! They have the best lip products, although Dior is a close second!

  • Karen E Young February 8, 2018 at 10:48 am

    I wonder what the Chanel Hair Mist is like. Might have to check it out!

  • Anna February 8, 2018 at 10:50 am

    I collect YSL lipcolors. They are the best. I want to try #2 expose me rose for spring.

  • Monica Palacios February 8, 2018 at 10:54 am

    Can you please do a Valentines day gift guide for Him? That would be super helpful!

  • Ellemomo February 8, 2018 at 10:54 am

    I’m just dying to try those roses! Would be so perfect to brighten up my office 🙂

  • Tammy Duong February 8, 2018 at 11:05 am

    Are the Byredo glass very fragile? What if you do not carry them in purses, are they okay to leave at home without the case? Thank you! Btw I love this Valentine’s selection. Should do a Valentine’s Day guide guide for Him!

  • Jenn Serrano February 8, 2018 at 11:16 am

    I just received my first order of the Venus et Fleur roses myself yesterday, I really hope my roses last as long as your roses. They look incredible especially after all they have been through over the past year! What an outstanding Vday gift guide, any woman would be delighted to receive something off your guide.

    • lawler February 8, 2018 at 11:55 pm

      Which ones did you decide on, Jenn?

      • Jenn Serrano February 9, 2018 at 12:37 am

        Hi Lawler, I got two orders actually…the Le Mini Square in plum roses and their Le Clair Cinq in blush pink. Between the two the Le Clair Cinq is my favorite hands down, I love anything acrylic really!

        • lawler February 9, 2018 at 1:18 am

          The plum shade is gorgeous. If I were to pick a non-traditional color, that would be my first choice too. Thanks for the reply and enjoy your Le Clair Cinq!

    Looking forward to the YSL balm review, very curious.
    We only celebrate Valentine’s Day by spending some quality time together, but this was a lovely selection of gift ideas.

  • MALINA CRISTESCU February 8, 2018 at 6:30 pm

    To be honest, for me he best Valentine’s gift would be a pair of red shoes or sandals 😀

  • Anne Capitant February 8, 2018 at 6:38 pm

    I just got a mini of the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask and the Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer as a Sephora perk and cannot wait to try them out! Also based on those swatches I don’t know which to run out and try first, the YSL or the Chanel! They both look amazing. The fact that they are sheer or semi sheer and can leave a decent stain is perfect for the warmer months to come!

  • SarahJ February 8, 2018 at 6:43 pm

    If only my husband would read this…maybe I’ll leave my laptop screen on.

  • Jaki M February 8, 2018 at 7:00 pm

    I need to try the overnight YSL Balm! It is a great idea, and I love all of the YSL lip products that I have purchased to date!

  • all that jae February 8, 2018 at 7:02 pm

    I always love lancome oil tint shaker, so now I think I have a crush with YSL Volupte Liquid Balms.

  • Cassidey February 8, 2018 at 8:49 pm

    The flowers are so beautiful! I can’t wait to see the review of the YSL Liquid Colour Balms. 🙂

  • BluBaBy630 February 8, 2018 at 8:51 pm

    I’ve been wanting to try the sleeping mask for a while now. Thank you for this opportunity

  • flyergal82 February 8, 2018 at 9:04 pm

    I love the roses-it’s amazing that they’ve lasted a year.

  • Linda S. February 8, 2018 at 9:35 pm

    Such great gift ideas and I’m such a sucker for pink packaging especially for Valentine’s Day.

  • Stephanie February 8, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    I’m still trying to figure out sleeping masks. Is it supposed to dry down or sink into the skin? For some reason I always thought of applying them like a wash away mask and then getting it all on the pillow… But I am excited about your upcoming reviews of the YSL and Chanel lip products!

  • Kim Mckain February 8, 2018 at 10:12 pm

    I can’t wait for your review on the Chanel Lip blush, on the fence about this one.

  • Thyya Wan February 8, 2018 at 10:59 pm

    Everything looks so pretty!

  • Amy K February 8, 2018 at 11:13 pm

    I bought myself the diptyque rose delight candle, and it is truly lovely!

  • susan h February 9, 2018 at 12:12 am

    Great ideas, thank you

  • Justine R February 9, 2018 at 1:26 am

    I am more a ‘Galentine’s’ person since I’m perpetually single, but I love it the holiday and all its pink! I tend to buy sugarfina for small presents (who doesn’t love candy, and the bento box packaging is adorable). We usually go out for brunch, but this year there is 30 cm of snow, who knows!

  • Eli Dumas February 9, 2018 at 2:34 am

    Oh, wow! Such gorgeous roses.

  • Imogen Walters February 9, 2018 at 3:56 am

    I can’t believe those roses lasted for a whole year! And they are so beautiful!

  • farrytalegonebad February 9, 2018 at 6:25 am

    Wow realy nice Roses. They are still looking fresh and beautiful. 🙂

  • Ning Shahirah Alfrink February 9, 2018 at 7:17 am

    The Venus et Fleur roses are simply stunning and the fact that they last so long is so worth the price. That would be a wonderful gift to give and receive

  • Eunice February 9, 2018 at 9:15 am

    hi Sabrina, thank you for this helpful gift guide!
    i wish my husband were romantic and generous enough to give me a box of venus et fleur roses.. looks beautiful.
    do they smell good like usual roses?

  • Lisa C February 9, 2018 at 9:21 am

    The roses are absolutely beautiful, and to think they are a year old! I’ve been wanting to try that watermelon mask but can never seem to get my hands on it! I may have to get the Sephora perk that has it in it.

  • cpbebe February 9, 2018 at 9:28 am

    wow on those roses! what a gorgeous thoughtful gift. I love the idea of Galentines gifts, I usually get a little something for my daughter. thanks for the swatches of the new lip products, and I am looking forward to your reviews of the latest Chanel releases.

  • Sheila February 9, 2018 at 9:47 am

    I think something – like the Venus et Fleur roses – that you can both enjoy is the best gift. Save celebrating your partner for their birthday; Valentine’s is about the two of you!

  • Kelly | Kiki & Co. February 9, 2018 at 11:12 am

    I would be happy to receive any of these gifts on the 14th. Those roses are incredible!

    My husband and I usually just go out to eat on or around Valentine’s Day. It’s an excuse to get out of the house. Love all the items, especially the lip blush.

  • Rachel February 9, 2018 at 5:03 pm

    The Watermelon Glow sleeping mask looks really interesting, I like ones that you can leave on overnight! I absolutely am addicted to candles, and these ones are beautiful!
