My husband and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day, but I love celebrating with the gal pals in my life as we take a day to show our love and appreciation for each other. A nice box of chocolates or a yummy Prosecco always hit the spot, but if you're looking for something special, check out some of our favorite gift ideas!
We love succulents, and this gorgeous arrangement from Bloom To Bloom takes the cake! Your Galentine will love seeing it on her doorstep, and we love that this company gives a percentage of every sale to charity and they are committed to sustainability and care for the earth!
We think this adorable sloth telling you that You Are So Loved is the perfect gift to give to a mama who can use it for an Intention or Prayer Box. NaturalLife's founder and overseer of creative design is a Mama of three herself, so she gets it!

Do we ever love this shirt! It says exactly what you need to hear all the time, and if you need to hear it? Just go to the mirror and take a gander! Boob makes this super-soft maternity/nursing shirt just for you, and even donates a percentage of sales to charity in partnership with Every Mother Counts. A win-win, and a must-remember for every mom you know because, damn! They are good mothers!
4. Facial Mask Machine
Don't knock this one before you try it! I was skeptical at first because I am so inept at making things sometimes, but this machine makes it so easy to use natural and organic ingredients to create face masks for enrichment and relaxation. Perfect for a girls' night in with your favorite spa music and beverage, and you'll be surprised at how addicted to mask-making you become!
5. Himalayan Salt Lamp
Not only are the health benefits of salt lamps growing more and more in research, they are simply soothing to have around you. Give your best gal-pal/mother/sister something she may have been thinking about but never took the plunge because she wasn't sure. This one has salt from Pakistan, as there are many on the market that are not and don't give the same benefits, and will certainly give any room it's in a peaceful vibe.
6. Organic, Vegan, Dairy-free, Gluten-free Chocolates
Yes, you read that right! There is such a thing and these are delicious. They allow a divine chocolate experience without some of the foods that many of our friends and family are restricted from. Who says you can't have chocolates for Valentine's Day after all?

7. Alex and Ani Friendship Bracelet
Let's be real. Family is not defined by blood, and you know those girlfriends who stick with you through thick and thin, cases of flu and dance recitals--they are the friends you love more than life. Which is why I love this bracelet that lets them know just how important they are to you! It's expandable too so they can add if they choose!
8. Pressed Flower SunCatcher For Grandma
We love sending the grandmothers in our life flowers, but the thing is...they die. This year, we've sent each a pressed flower suncatcher, so they'll have that love from us year-round, always beautifully hanging. The silver charm lets them know we love them and appreciate the gift of grandparents!
9. Organic Rose Water
Any woman in your life will find this indulgent rose water an amazing gift! It's steam-distilled from fresh rose petals and is anti-inflammatory (bye-bye, puffy eyes!) and skin-balancing. Plus it feels so amazing on your skin. This is not a mixture of oil and water, it's a pure rose flower water and is vegan too. While you're at it, you're gonna want to add one in the cart for yourself!
10. Mongo Kiss Oil Lip Balm
I have very sensitive lips. I'm not sure if it's my aging hormones or just exposure to crap when I was younger and didn't know better about better products, but these days, very few lipsticks can go on my lips without really drying them and chapping them to the point of pain. And only ONE chapstick makes my lips feel heavenly - this one. I love all their flavors and it is an automatic girlfriend 'pick-me up' gift I give all the time because I love it that much. Trust me, so will anyone you give it to!
