24 Valentine’s Day Gifts That Are All About Self CareCRYSTALWEED cannabis/Unsplash

No matter what you’re celebrating — Valentine’s Day with a significant other, Galentine’s Day with your best friends, or just an excuse to treat yourself — ‘tis the season for giving and receiving the gift of self care.

Looking for an updated take on the holiday’s beloved rose? May we suggest a swampy (yes, you read that correctly) scented candle. How about something for your bestie who has a standing appointment with her aesthetician? Potent skincare is sure to satisfy. And what about an innovative idea for your tech-obsessed S.O.? We found an at-home infrared sauna blanket that you can both enjoy.

From tried-and-true wellness boosters (think: rosewater, Ayurvedic perfume oils, and herbal baths) to multitasking lip care, keep scrolling for the ultimate guide to Valentine’s Day gifting.

Kahina Giving Beauty Moroccan Rosewater


We love a rosewater mist all year long, but it seems particularly romantic this time of year. This multitasking elixir can be used as an antibacterial cleansing agent, pH balancer, acne- and sunburn-soother, or even mood booster. Featuring 100 percent pure steam distilled Rosa Damascena from Morocco’s Valley of Roses and no added water, alcohol, fragrance, or preservatives, this is the ultimate mind-body pick-me-up. $40, kahina-givingbeauty.com

HeatHealer Infrared Sauna Blanket


Want the benefits of an infrared sauna without going to the sauna? Simply lie down in the sleeping bag-like accoutrement to relieve aches and pains, calm your mind, sweat, and maybe even burn a few calories – all from the comfort of your own home or wherever you choose to take it (it comes with a carrying case for simpler storage and transport). $568, heathealer.com

Makeup by Mario MoistureGlow Plumping Lip Serum in Plum Glow


Lip color meets lip care with this glossy balm from celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic’s cult-favorite line. A vegan blend of conditioning oils (think: shea butter, avocado, kiwi, argan) plump, nourish, and hydrate the pout, while the neutral, your-lips-but-better shades – we’re partial to this purple hue – impart a subtle tint that’s perfect for puckering up this Valentine’s Day. $22, sephora.com

Emilie Heathe Nail Artist Polish in Champagne Toast


While your V-Day nail look will be lovely with any color polish, there’s just something about a perfect pink to match the holiday. In addition to the beautiful hue, these polishes contain ingredients like bamboo extract, rice bran oil, and sea buckthorn oil to nourish your nails from root to tip. Additionally, the eco-friendly bottles are made of up of 50% post-consumer recycled glass. $28, emilieheathe.com

FORVR Mood Pillowtalk Duo Candles Set


Set the mood with this sensual set. The names alone are enough to make us click ‘add to cart,’ but these 100 percent natural coconut soy wax candles are more than a cute face. Sweet Spot is a sexy blend of orange, chocolate, jasmine, and musk, while Phero-moans is a flirty pairing of pink champagne, citrus, strawberry, apple, and plum – and you can count on both to envelope the room with an intoxicating aroma. $72, forvrmood.com

Ice globes are Instagram and TikTok’s favorite skincare tool, and, while some social media-famous products can be total gimmicks, the cool spheres are actually useful in real life.

TooD bioglitter in Jasper


A grownup take on glitter, this innovative formula is made from plastic-free plant cellulose, meaning it is biodegradable in as little as 28 days in natural environments.
