Think out-of-the-box this February 14 and swap the candy hearts for dreamy druzy stones and champagne scented candles.

So, let’s not waste any more time, here are the hand-picked products I’m obsessing over, and I am pretty sure you will too.

For the Fashionista

If you know me, you know that I am a sucker for anything Kendra Scott. I mean, who isn’t? First of all, she is crushing it as a woman entrepreneur and second, her styles are to die for. Lucky for you, we have her latest collection in store. This new line shines in silver, gold and bronze while mirroring the brand’s ‘fresh and innovative’ aesthetic for 2018. Think: dainty and edgy all rolled into one. Surprise your gal with the new Olive Long Necklace. This piece is super versatile as it can be worn layered or alone.

Into more color? Our Druzy Elisa Necklace is the one you’ve been looking for. A dainty metallic chain accented with a one-of-a-kind druzy stone is just the statement you AND she need. This line is amazing because it’s unique and affordable! Get one for you and your BFF.

For the one who’s Sugar, (Extra) Spice, and Everything Nice

We all have that girlfriend who is your go-to for anything daring and fun. The one you know you’re guaranteed to have a fun time with and is game for everything. Hanky Panky’s Rose Thong in pink or red is a gift this friend will love! Not only are these SO comfy to wear and adorable, but the panties are specially wrapped like an actual rose. Cute, right?

For the Wine Connoisseur

rewined candles

Who’s ready for a big night in with re-runs of the Bachelor or Real Housewives? I’m not ashamed to say that I am that friend! We love this girl because she’s down to kick back and get cozy on a Friday night. Surprise her this Valentine’s Day with a Champagne scented Rewind Candle. This amazing candle evokes the feeling of celebration and has sweet notes of white grape, honey, fresh baked bread and light citrus. Hello girl’s night! Wine lovers will appreciate this gift is actually made from a repurposed bottle of vino. Recycle chic you could say?

For the Free Spirit

This thoughtful gift is perfect for your girl who is a free spirit; she’s incredibly unique and embodies individualism. She likes to discover the trends and rock them even before they hit the market. I suggest gifting her a beautiful (and affordable) set of layered necklaces from LA designer, Wendi Grant. Subtle gold and embellished with just the right amount of sparkle, these Wendi Gate pieces can be worn with anything. The options are endless when it comes layering necklaces and you can select styles and symbols that your free-spirited gal with love.

Go to a peaceful place

Pick up a bouquet of flowers for yourself. After all, you don’t need an excuse or a holiday to buy yourself some flowers. Living Color Garden Center is a beautiful place to take pictures and spend your afternoon just smelling the roses. Take your best friend or mom and spend the day building your own bouquet.

This is an excellent place to meditate and learn how to cultivate your life.
