Slay Valentines Day with These Non-Traditional Gift Ideas

Slay Valentines day 2016 with these non-traditional gift ideas that will make your V-Day crush, crush on you even harder (cheers for hopefully thinking). Skip the bizarre high-cal, heart-shaped gifts she doesn’t want—read again…DOESN’T WANT—and go with a small gift that’s not only ridiculously cool but is something she will use long after Cupid packs up for the year. Take back that tacky teddy bear that says “I Love You” and opt for a gorgeous Teal S’Well Water bottle splashed with arrows; it will go straight to her heart. Or, incorporate a little Valentines Day sentiment with a red lip embellished cosmetic bag and toss in her favorite NARS lipstick.

You will be winning the love celebration/made up holiday game, fast. Trust me. And- even if you are disgusted that I am doing a Valentines Day gift idea post, you will want to bookmark everything because these gifts are awesome.

But, there is another pink S’Well water bottle in pink that would make a fun Valentines Day gift too. If you haven’t heard of S’Well, they are basically taking water bottles by storm. (at Nordstroms for $35.00 and Free Shipping)
  6. Kate Spade Live Colorfully Rollerball: Fragrance is always a great Valentines Day Gift, but it’s important to buy a scent she will appreciate and want to wear.

You can make this gift look more expensive, and extra special by placing it into a glass jar (like I did here) and typing a bow around it. (at Nordstroms for $8.50 and Free Shipping)
