Valentine’s Day Gift Guide For Her

Ladies, Valentine’s Day countdown is at 5 days! 5 days until the lovey-dovey day and although I am spending it with family and friends this year…some of you need to get cracking on your V-Day wishlists (did that sound a little spoiled? Nah!). With Valentine’s Day in less than a week, now is the time to slip this little list to your S.O. so he knows exactly what to do! Saying that though, even if you decide to check out sites like giftunicorn last minute, try and come up with a list of a few things that you wouldn’t mind getting from your other half.

With this gift guide, you really can’t go wrong with all of these one of these lovely presents!

My Favourites

All of these gifts are marvelous and I kind of want every single thing on this list (hehe!), but naturally, I do have a few that I have taken a liking to more than others…

NARS Blush

Valentine's Day Gift Guide For Her - Pearls and Polkadots

I have taken a liking to NARS products lately. The blush is so smooth and creamy and I just love the different shades it comes in. Personally, I do not own any NARS products yet, but the blush will be the first I buy…because look how sexy that colour is! How could I not pick myself up a little blush?

Kate Spade Gold Watch

Valentine's Day Gift Guide For Her - Pearls and Polkadots

I don’t wear watches…really because I don’t have one that is comfortable on my wrist. I have tried this watch on before and I want it so badly (don’t you wish you had an extra $200 lying around?). The gold detail is beautiful (#teamgold!!) and I love the pink secondhand (that is my favourite part…).

UGG Slippers

Valentine's Day Gift Guide For Her - Pearls and Polkadots

Slippers are my weakness. I wear them in the house all the time because they keep my feet toasty warm! They come in so many different types, sizes, shapes, colours, materials…you name it. However, I love the lined slippers and more importantly, the higher quality slippers. Because I wear them SO much, I need them to last a long time!!

Valentine’s Day is such a fun time of year (despite if you have an S.O. or not) because you get to celebrate the ones you love! It certainly is not a time to splurge on material items, but it doesn’t hurt to receive (and give!!) a little gift from that special someone!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

You can’t go wrong with a scented candle…or what about a really nice pair of gloves? If your man works in construction, look no further than these heat resistant gloves.

I can tell you that some of these gifts are some of my favourite things…and what I’m wishing Santa will bring me this year. However, like every gift guide I do…I like some things more than others…

Kate Spade Darla Wallet in “Ballet Slipper” Pink


This wallet is so cute and right up my alley (considering it is the perfiect colour!) It is the perfect little gift for that special lady in your life or even your best friend. The design is simple – my favourite part of the design is the scalloped edge! So chic!

Mukluk’s Criss-Cross Knit Mittens in Blue


Mittens are pretty much a necessity in Canada (even though this Winter has been very mild). These warm knit mukluk’s will keep the fingers cozy and they don’t look too shabby in this beautiful blue colour. My favourite part of these mittens is the turned up cuff – very nice detail.

Calvin Klein Euphoria Gold Men’s Cologne


One word to describe this cologne? Amazing. It is my favourite cologne on men…it is the best smelling cologne I have ever smelled. Seriously. The design of the bottle is nice (that that too many men care about the packaging…) and the best part about it? It’s not too expensive…

Nordstrom Perforated Leather Gloves


Leather gloves are probably the best looking gloves on a guy. A nice pair of gloves is one of the symbols that a guy is a great dresser! These gloves aren’t too expensive and they aren’t too big either. I like slim-fitting gloves (both for men and women)…they are more useful that way. The perforation on the top is nice too so your hands can breathe.

Well that’s a wrap…(literally).

Putting off your Christmas shopping isn’t a good idea…but most of these ideas can be found at your local mall if you look hard enough…and if you want to express post the items, order them online – everything is linked underneath the guides for your shopping needs! Some other services may still deliver in time too, like photo socks australia if a last minute idea’s come to mind for the perfect image, and it could pair nicely with the slippers for some extra snugness this holiday season. Hopefully he or she has a great Christmas…and your Christmas shopping is already complete.

Merry Christmas!!
