Hi, friends! It’s love beauty thrive’s first ever gift guide – just in time for Valentine’s Day! As part of this year’s new vision for the blog (we talked all about it last week), I couldn’t wait to create and share our very first gift guide with you . . . to honour the celebration of love.
This is the first of several gift guides that you’ll see on the blog this year, a new annual tradition. It was so much fun browsing, shopping and compiling this list with some of the best Valentine’s Day gifts I could find. I’ll show you all of my favourite ideas to surprise your significant other, family, friends or other special person in your life with all. the. love.
I’m so happy that launch day is finally here!
What’s In This Gift Guide?
For love beauty thrive’s first ever gift guide, I organized and broke it down by theme, picking at least five favourite items for each. You’ll find Valentine’s Day gift ideas for her, for him, Valentine’s Day specific gifts, gifts for couples, for the little ones, and more (like extra favourites for under $25). I think it’s a nice layout that I just might use for future gift guides too. I hope you like it!
I’m also including a section with some of my own favourite items (things that I really, really personally love). So if you see an item here, you know it’s something I actually have, use and can’t get enough of. I’d be so happy to get any of these on Valentine’s Day (hint, hint)!
Amazon For All
Like so many of us, I’ve been doing most, if not all, of my gift shopping entirely online over the past two years (staying home and safe). And so, this year’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide will focus on amazing gift ideas and easy, convenient, online shopping for every budget. And do you know what’s perfect for that? You guessed it . . . Amazon!
You can get all of the amazing Valentine’s Day gift ideas you see in this guide on Amazon, shipped right to your door – super fast. Everything is linked up for you right in the post for easy, happy shopping. I know you’ll find the perfect gift for those you love this Valentine’s Day!
Don’t forget to show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day too. It’s a day of love, and that includes self love and care. I hope you’ll find wonderful items in this guide for the special person in your life (whoever they may be), but also a way to treat your very special self this Valentine’s Day too.
We all deserve to treat ourselves, especially after all we’ve gone through these past few years. And Valentine’s Day, the celebration of love, is the perfect opportunity. I hope you’ll see an item that brings a smile to your face and treat yourself to it too (add to that cart!) – because you deserve it!
Enjoy love beauty thrive’s 1st Annual Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, 2022! It truly was such a fun list to put together for you. I’m sure it will give you some great ideas, helping you with any and all Valentine’s Day shopping you plan to do this year (for yourself or others). I can’t wait to shop it myself too, for my family – and for me!
I’m already so excited to keep perfecting my gift guide skills throughout the year as celebrations and special days approach. I’d love to hear what you think about this guide’s organization, layout, gift ideas, and browsing experience that I might be able to improve or adapt for future guides. Stay tuned (I’ve already started compiling my next lists)! And with that, on to the gifts!
