Whether you’re loved up or single, we all know that Valentine's Day is overrated, and the person who really deserves the gifts, the love and the overpriced supermarket flowers, is in fact you. So let’s skip the part where we have to drop hints to our significant other just in case they decide to get in the spirit, and instead just add a few of these goodies to cart because THAT is what we call true love.
Al.ive Body Australia Kaffir Lime and Green Tea Wash and Lotion Duo with tray, $79: Fancy hand wash is our love language and this duo speaks to us on a soul level. An uplifting and surprisingly zingy scent (that’s the lime and sweet orange) with cute packaging that will also pretty up your bathroom – sold.
Blossom Aromatherapy Shower Steamers, $14.95: Take your shower to bath-levels of bliss with these neat little aromatherapy bursts, filled with essential oils. Just pop it on the shower floor close to the water stream and the water spray will gently melt the tablet, releasing the essential oils so you can wind down, wake up or just breathe.
Urban Apothecary Luxury Candle Library Gift Set, $210 (set of 12): Hands up whose partner has ever bought them a candle? Anyone? Didn’t think so. This is why this makes the perfect gift to self because we all know they’re the greatest, and we all want this in our lives but no amount of hinting ever sees them appear behind the wrapping paper. Plus, this way you can sample all the scents in the Urban Apothecary range before committing to a full-sized candle.
Infinite She Fearless Detoxifying Bath Salts, $39.95: Imbued with scents to make you feel like you’ve totally got this (thanks, Rosewood and Wild Geranium) these detoxifying bath salts will also help you de-stress and relax, which frankly is a gift in itself.
Maho Rose Bois Incense, $35: With notes of Rose, Sandalwood and Cocoa Bean, this incense embodies everything we love about love. With a button incense holder included you can take it anywhere to take a moment to yourself, creating a ritual of calm that will (hopefully) last well beyond the burn.
The Perfume Oil Company SANTAL, inspired by Santal 33, Le Labo Perfume Oil, $29.95: Here’s a sure-fire way to get a new personal fragrance that you’re guaranteed to love: choose it yourself! This little beauty stashes neatly in even the smallest handbag and is an excellent dupe for Santal 33, but, you know, a smidge of the price.
Lula Self-Warming Eye Masks in Jasmine, $29.95: These clever eye masks are like a hug for your eyes, warming as soon as they come into contact with the air (and stay comfortably warm). The perfect antidote to tired eyes, they also release the subtle scent of Jasmine that helps you relax, de-stress and ease you into a blissful sleep. Now that is dreamy.
