Run out of Valentine’s Day gift ideas? Flowers too cliché for your liking? Or, let’s be real, you almost forgot that Valentine’s Day is coming up. Don’t panic—it’s not too late to pick up a gift!
Or, if you’re reading this after February 14, they make pretty great makeup gifts, too.
Eau Rose Solid Perfume, Eau Rose Hand and Body Lotion, Damascena Candle and Eau Rose Hair Mist available at Diptyque, R1 Level
Give a (unique) bouquet
While nothing beats receiving fresh roses, Diptyque has blessed our olfactory systems with the next best thing: a rose collection.
The Paris-based fragrance house picked the most sublime roses from the French Riviera and Persia and bottled them up as stylish scents. We couldn’t have asked for a better floral arrangement!
Jo Malone, R1 Level
Make new memories
Scents trigger vivid memories. Why not use this scientific knowledge to associate a bottle of Jo Malone with fond memories of Valentine’s Day 2019? Just don’t forget to plan something fun or romantic to go with the scent. This combo is a surefire way to leave an indelible mark on your valentine.
Kate Spade New York, R1 Level
Write love notes
Writing letters is a lost art. Bring it back to life this Valentine’s Day and stash handwritten love notes in, say, a red bag from Kate Spade New York. You’ll be giving more than just a bag—think of it as a romantic gesture, an elaborate envelope for love notes and other sweet nothings. Or a lot of sweet somethings. (Yes, we mean chocolate.)
Any of these gifts say “I love you,” but only you can add a personal touch to make it unique and thoughtful.
Still looking for traditional fare like flowers, balloons and sweets? Check out the gift and flower fair at Truly, Madly, Deeply: A Power Plant Mall Valentine’s Day Celebration until February 14, 2019. (Story/Photos by: (Jannine Sy)
