Valentine's Day Gift Giving 101

By Shivani Dahiya

 

It's that time of the year again, folks! And as much as we might (pretend to) despise the institution of Valentine's Day, it makes for a perfect occasion to shower your loved one with gifts. Okay, who are we kidding, it is really the receiving part that we are looking forward to.  

However, we are hoping you have more up your sleeve than flowers and chocolates, unless you are living in the Stone Age of course. Also, didn't you get the memo? "Carb Control" made it to the top of our list of resolutions this year.   

So, if you are clueless about your gifting options, you must start taking note. 

This year, we are all about inner beauty, so naturally the next step would be to go on a makeup haul, right? We would love to be offered a chance to channel Jacqueline Fernandez's vivacious energy and bold glam. Her signature line 2.0 ‘Reach for The Stars’ with The Body Shop is one coveted item on our wish list. However, the range earned its wings for being 100% vegetarian and animal cruelty free.  

Or better yet, take a cue from Cleopatra and douse yourself in the goodness of milk & honey with their body butters and lotions that help revive your skin to life. Let's not forget the romance of roses and strawberries to the freshness of moringa and mystifying smoky rose to the enchanting black musk as The Body Shop serves with extensive beauty bundles for every taste.

Also, while you're at it, feel free to toss a chocolate truffle or two in the mix.   

With this, we wrap up creative gift giving 101. You can thank us later.
