Self Love Valentine’s: 10 Gifts to Make Yourself Feel Beautiful

Finding the perfect Valentine’s gift for your love can be stressful. But getting a gift for yourself? That’s where the fun comes in. Ease your stress levels and focus on self love this V-Day with these goodies.

Guerlain KissKiss Love Lipstick – €37.50 from Debenhams

Pink case? Check. Heart shaped? Check. Gives you the perfect pink V-Day pout? Check. This gorgeous heart-shaped lippie from Guerlain molds perfectly to your cupid’s bow to give you kiss-ready lips in five colours.

 

Laura Mercier Honey Bath – €45.00 from Brown Thomas

No self-love Valentine’s Day is complete without a long, hot bath and this addition will make it your best pampering session yet. Shea butter, vanilla extracts and oat proteins will leave your skin (and bathroom) smelling divine.

 

Cloon Keen Atelier Mountain Flower Perfumed Candle – €40.00 from Cloon Keen Atelier

An Irish-made candle inspired by Ulysses’ Molly Bloom? Sounds like the perfect addition to a girly Irish Valentine’s. With notes of grapefruit, magnolia and sandalwood, this gorgeous candle is an earthy tribute to Molly’s passionate soliloquy in one of our island’s most celebrated books.

Lush Love Box – €32.65 from Lush

Lush is always a go-to spot when you need a last minute gift set that’s perfectly boxed and wrapped. So why not treat yourself to one? All of their best Valentine’s offerings, including a sensual massage bar, lip scrub that will leave you ultra-kissable and a sweet cherry body scrub, are included in the Love Box.

Spectrum Valentines Bag and Brush Set – €60.79 from ASOS

The fact that make-up brand Spectrum is PETA-registered and vegan will appeal to your moral compass. With their dreamy blush pink brushes and heart-shaped bag, this set is sure to appeal to your romantic side too.

Jo Malone Red Roses Diffuser 165ml – €78.00 from Brown Thomas

Bunches of flowers look great in the beginning and all, but after a couple of days, the wilting petals are a bit more depressing than desirable. Bypass the flora altogether and enjoy the delicious scent for much longer with this diffuser from fragrance legend Jo Malone.

Silk Ivory Pillowcase – €14.99 from Homestore & More

If you’re rocking the single life, your bed can feel a little lonely come Valentine’s Day. Turn it into a place of luxury with a decadent silk pillowcase, which promises less split ends, better skin and sweet dreams.

Lancôme La Nuit Tresor a La Folie – €55.00 from The Perfume Shop

If Valentine’s isn’t an excuse to treat yourself to new perfume, then nothing is. This new offering from Lancôme features notes of Rose Essence, Bourbon Vanilla and Patchouli to make a sweet, sexy scent that sums up the day perfectly.

ghd Platinum Pink Blush Styler – €199.00 from Peter Mark

ghd has been everyone’s favourite straightener since our pre-teen days, and that love is about to be renewed with this limited edition blush pink finish. With ten euro from every purchase going to the Irish Cancer Society, you can show the charity some much-needed love too.

 

L’Oréal Colorista Washout Pink Semi-Permanent Hair Dye – €7.99 by Boots

They always say that making a dramatic change to your hair after a break-up will make you feel brand new. Whether you’re post-breakup or just in need of a change without the commitment, this semi-permanent dye will give your look and mood some love.
