Gift Guide: What to Give the Beauty & Wellness Lover this Valentine’s Day

Just because the past year (and this year) isn’t exactly what we hoped for, that doesn’t mean that there’s a lack of love circulating. In fact, I argue to say that there is even more kindness and sincerity now more than ever before. Folks are banding together and doing what they can to help their communities, families, and friends weather the storm called COVID. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, this usually cheesy holiday has more meaning. I openly categorize myself as a cynic when it comes to love-dovey stuff but even I’m feeling the festive spirit of the holiday. While you can treat yourself, your partner or gal pals to a fun takeaway dinner from a local restaurant, another thing that I quite enjoy doing around this time is cranking up all things self-love. These Valentine’s Day gift picks are sure to give your day a little extra oomph and have you feeling even more fabulous and gorgeous than you already are.

There is truly nothing better than stepping into a ripping hot bath after a long day, or a long and tiring morning. Anytime can be bathtime especially during lockdown so if you’re heading in for a soak, why not ensure it’s the most luxurious and relaxing soak? These bath salts from Surf Soak are available at Holt Renfrew and are part of the H Project program which means it’s good for the planet and people because it’s made from clean ingredients.

While this isn’t necessarily a beauty product, face masks have become a necessity and while they do help protect us from COVID-19, they can also be the culprit behind maskne. If you’re breaking out, switch up your mask to one of these silk ones by slip. Silk is much gentler on the face and should help with any irritation or acne, plus for extra skin protection, spray your favourite toner or essence on the inside to prevent any blemishes. This mask, with a charming kiss print, is perfect for Valentine’s Day, or any day you want to spread a little extra love!

If you’re all about self-care, then you need to know about the boxes that Toronto beauty salon Majesty’s Pleasure has available. My go-to pick is the Do Not Disturb box that’s centred all-around catching up on beauty sleep and getting in some necessary relaxation. The box comes with a face mask, bath salts, a bottle of rosé, a sleep mask, a candle, and even a customized playlist.
