This time of year is about showing some love, so let the stress melt away and remember to love those around you (and yourself!) If you’d like to treat a friend, significant other, or loved one to something special this year, you’ll certainly appreciate these Valentine’s Day Gift ideas! Flowers and choccies are lovely, but a mindful gift will bring joy to your loved one long after the last sweet and petals have gone. Discover the power of mindful presents with these Valentine’s Day gift ideas.
Spoil Them With an Experience
After all, memories last a lifetime! Here are Valentine’s Day gift ideas that they’ll look back on fondly:
Awaken their Inner Baker – Are you an expert baker or sweet maker? Then, share your experience with those you love. All it takes is writing up your superstar recipe, measuring out the ingredients, and packing them all up in a cute box or basket. Not only will you share a sweet moment, but you’ll also teach your Valentine how to bake a treat they can always make!
Plan a Special Evening – There’s nothing more meaningful than giving your loved one your time. If you don’t have a chance to make a gift, you can always arrange a special evening for the two of you! A wine and painting night or surprise picnic could provide plenty of fun. Of course, plan the evening according to your Valentine’s taste!
Set Up a Home Spa – Going to a spa isn’t possible for most people at the moment, but that doesn’t mean your Valentine can’t indulge! With a few candles and relaxing music, you can transform your home into a spa. For good measure, diffuse essential oils to provide a sense of calm and use a gentle massage oil to treat your loved one. You can even give them a nice exfoliating pedicure that will leave their feet feeling brand new!
Treat Them With Natural Skincare
We all can use a reminder to practice more self-care. Here are Valentine’s Day gift ideas for pampering their skin:
Fragrant Soaps – Who doesn’t love to smell nice? Handmade soaps are always appreciated, especially if your Valentine loves being squeaky clean. These can be easily made at home using the melt and pour or traditional methods and some of Mayca’s tips. If your loved one is over the moon with their soaps, you can also give them a soapmaking eBook!
Bath Essence – A nice soak in the tub can help anyone feel relaxed. Give the gift of luxurious self-care by reminding your loved ones to slow down and enjoy a calming bath. A homemade bath essence makes a brilliant Valentine’s Day gift idea for anyone who loves aromatherapy and soothing natural skincare.
Moisturising Oils and Butters – Did you know that most people walk around in various stages of dehydration? That’s why the gift of moisturisation is immensely valuable. Handmade skincare gifts make great Valentine’s Day gift ideas for your friends or family members whose skin needs some extra attention.
Share the Beauty of Learning
At WapoBeauty, we believe knowledge is power. Here are Valentine’s Day gift ideas that will help your loved one expand their mind:
Hobby Kits – Have you ever heard your Valentine say, “I wish I had time to…” followed by a hobby they never picked up? Well, now’s a great opportunity to encourage them to learn. From soapmaking to candle making to weaving, fermenting veggies, brewing beer, and building terrariums, there are plenty of mindful hobbies to choose from. You can put together a personal kit or purchase one from a small business!
Cooking Class – For many, the way to their heart is through their stomach! If you have someone special in your life who loves cooking (or could improve their skills) a virtual cooking class is a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift idea. These classes are great for socialising, having fun, and cultivating mindful eating habits. We are what we eat, after all!
Museum Memberships – Museums are inspiring places filled with knowledge that anyone can enjoy. Choose from an array of different museums and give your Valentine a gift that keeps on giving. This Valentine’s Day gift idea is incredibly adaptable and can be given across borders and oceans. Moments spent in a museum help cultivate culture, heritage, and appreciation for the beautiful world we live in.
