Of course we love chocolate and flowers, but there are other things we want more than those typical presents! Try to think outside of the box, but also keep it very very basic. Heck - pizza & ranch dressing would do, but if you are trying to step it up I gotchu! 

1. Buy us jewelry that ISN'T HEART SHAPED! 

Meet our limited edition pink cubic zirconia stone necklace just in time for Valentine’s Day: Be Still. A delicate and feminine touch for an effortlessly sexy appeal.

2. Skincare is very expensive. Help a girl out! See what brand she follows on Instagram and buy a gift box. Super easy. 

Need some #WeekendPlans inspo?! Make sure your #shelfie is stocked to target your skin concerns. For those looking to calm stressed skin... -- 1. Cleanse with Calendula Deep Foaming Face Wash to gently remove dirt and oil -- 2. Next, #TreatYourself to our calmative, non-acnegenic Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate face oil that works to visibly reduce skin and is ideal for problem skin -- 3. Moisturize with Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream to visibly even skin tone and boost radiance in just one week -- #TapToShop our Keep Calm Kit that has all three must-haves inside! #Kiehls #SkincareRoutine #HealthySkin

3. She would love some nice warm slippers, and you could even throw in a gift card for a pedicure. 

Roses are red. Violets are blue. Keep the flowers, I’d rather have shoes. Link in bio to shop our Valentine’s Day gift boutique. #UGGlife #HVD

4. If she likes her sleep as much as I do, she will love a cozy and cute pajama set. She might even cuddle and let you be the big spoon. 

Say “thank you for being a friend” with cute pajamas for the whole crew.

5. What could be better than pasteries? WHEN THEY ARE HEART-SHAPED AND PINK! Get her some cookies, cupcakes, brownies, etc.
