Since I’ve been moving for the past few weeks (traveling from Maine to Asheville to Savannah to Florida can take some time), it’s easy to fall out of “the know.” That’s why I love Babbleboxx. BabbleBoxx is a co-sampling initiative that involves testing multiple brands and their up-and-coming featured products for the season. With Valentine’s Day just a week away, my February Babbleboxx couldn’t have come at a better time, and I’m super excited to share its contents with y’all! If you’re also hoping to stay ahead of the curve, consider these items for all Galentine’s and/or Valentine’s Day gifting opportunities… one (or several) of them just may be the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your special someone:
Valentine’s Day Gift Idea #1: Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana and a Perfumania Gift Certificate
Fragrances don’t usually come to my mind when shopping for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, but a new perfume or cologne from Perfumania actually fits the bill quite well. If you’re looking for something new, you’ll literally fall in love with Dolce by Dolce & Gabana. Dolce is a floral, feminine mix that blends the freshness of Neroli with the opulence of White Amaryllis, Water Lilly, Narcissus, and Papaya Flower for a flirty, mild, and sophisticated scent. I’ve been wearing Dolce nonstop, and I’m getting compliments everywhere I go. Oh, and if you use code DEBUTANTE25 at checkout from February 1-14, you’ll get 25% off your entire order at perfumania.com, and you’ll qualify for free shipping!
Another great option, either separate or in addition to Dolce by Dolce & Gabana, is a Perfumania Giftcard! Gift him or her $50 to shop online or in-store at any Perfumania location. If you’re not familiar with them, Perfumania is the one-stop fragrance destination for anyone and everyone, carrying hundreds of brands– ranging from classic designer fragrances to the newest trends. Their team is always super helpful, too, so if you need advice or a tiebreaker, don’t hesitate to consult their fragrance experts.
Don’t forget to use code DEBUTANTE25 at checkout from February 1-14 to get 25% off your entire order at perfumania.com and to qualify for free shipping!
Valentine’s Day Gift Idea #2: Edible Arrangements Signature Chocolate Box and Valentine’s Day Bouquet
I feel like Edible Arrangements is synonymous with Valentine’s Day. They create freshly-crafted gifts for everyone you love, whether your message is, “I love you,” “Happy Valentine’s Day,” or “Enjoy this just because you’re awesome.” From sweet fruit arrangements to decadent chocolate covered fruit, Edible Arrangements has your gifting needs covered this February– even if you wait until the very last minute (cause they offer same day delivery!). Plus, right now you can get $10 off your order when you spend $39 or more through February 11, 2017 with code SAVE3966!
Their official Valentine’s Day bouquet is hand crafted with fresh fruit and chocolate, including some of the sweetest fresh strawberries I’ve ever tasted, gourmet chocolate covered strawberries, grapes, juicy pineapple slices shaped like hearts, and an adorable chocolate heart that says “I love you.” It’s one of my favorite Edible Arrangement bouquets ever, and there’s absolutely no shame in ordering one for yourself or for a romantic dinner you’re planning. Oh, and it comes in one size and costs $75 per bouquet (or $65 with the $10 SAVE3966 discount code)!
Edible Arrangements also curates chocolate boxes, too, and the New Edible® Signature Chocolate Box is to die for. Featuring recipes designed by master chocolatier Jacques Torres, these premium, melt-in-your-mouth chocolates are available in 6 decadent flavors, including hazelnut crunch, caramel, raspberry, orange, pineapple, and passion fruit. I didn’t find a single chocolate that I actually wanted to share (I promise I did, though), so yeah… I highly recommend their Signature Chocolate Box. These boxes start at $49 for 18 pieces and can be doubled in size to 36 pieces (so much yummm) for $98.
Don’t forget– get $10 off your order when you spend $39 or more through February 11, 2017 with code SAVE3966!
Valentine’s Day Gift Idea #3: Faber-Castell Art Supplies
Until receiving my February Babbleboxx, I’ve literally never considered giving art supplies as gifts, and it makes me so disappointed in my gift giving creativity! For any of the art lovers in your life, whether they’re area of interest is professional artwork, design, fashion, or crafting, Faber-Castell has a long history of 256 years of creating the highest quality products. Their expansive assortment of art products makes their products great gift options for creative types on Valentine’s Day.
Outside of the delicious Italian treat, I had no idea what “Gelatos” were before reading the Gelatos® Dolce 2 Gift Set packaging. Faber-Castell Gelatos® are super pigmented, acid-free sticks of color that can be used in Mixed Media art projects. They glide on smooth for vibrant color and blend easily with or without water. They can be used on any porous surface and are available in 68 colors, including beautiful new iridescent and highlighter colors!
Faber-Castell PITT® Artist Pens offer odorless, permanent, waterproof, lightfast inks in sixty vibrant colors and a variety of nibs (art term for the point of a pen). These fancy markers contain the highest quality India ink for unsurpassed lightfastness that won’t bleed through most paper, including Bible pages. These markers are perfect for everything from professional art projects to coloring books to religious study groups! Pictured below are the Faber-Castell PITT® Artist Pen Studio Gift Box of 24 and Faber-Castell PITT® Artist Pen 8-Count Wallet in Black.
Last, but not least, the graphite quality and finely graduated degrees of hardness have made the Faber-Castell CASTELL 9000® Graphic Design Set a longtime favorite with artists and illustrators. Its lead is fully bonded with the wood, making it durable and break-resistant. These pencils have an environmentally safe water-based coating and are available in 16 degrees of hardness for writing, drawing and sketching.
Valentine’s Day Gift Idea #4: Casio G-SHOCK S Series Watch
If you’re searching for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift ideas for any of the fashionistas in your life, Casio’s G-SHOCK S Series watch is guaranteed to make them smile! Casio’s timepieces are specifically designed for the influential, fashion-forward woman who seeks a sportswear-inspired toughness to enhance her modern style. The Casio G-SHOCK S Series GMA-S110CM-2A is the ideal gift for any stylish girlboss who values advanced technology and precise time-keeping in a versatile fashion accessory.
Valentine’s Day Gift Idea #5: Sunsweet PlumSweets
Babbleboxx also considered affordable Valentine’s gift ideas when curating this box, and Sunsweet PlumSweets were the perfect solution! PlumSweets are a delicious combination of decadent dark chocolate and scrumptious, bite-size pieces of Amaz!n Prunes. They retail for $3.95 per bag, and you can download a coupon for $1.00 off a 6oz bag of PlumSweets here.
Sunsweet PlumSweets are actually incredibly healthy, too, which makes them a great candidate for your go-to “treat yourself” snack, as well. They’re made with real fruit and no high fructose corn syrup, and one serving (1/4 of the bag) is 150 calories. Plus, studies have shown that eating prunes supports bone health, especially in postmenopausal women (eating 5-6 prunes per day helped to prevent bone loss). Prunes are also a source of potassium, which helps to increase bone mineral density while reducing bone breakdown, magnesium, which is important for bone structure, and vitamin K, which plays an important role in bone mineralization. Beneficial deliciousness all around!
I hope this round-up of perfect Valentine’s Day gift ideas helped y’all out a little bit! I gotta give Babbleboxx credit for quite a few of my Galentine’s and Valentine’s gifts this year.
