Valentine's Gifts {with a Cause}

I know Valentine's Day has sort of become a pretty commercial holiday. But it is still fun to shower the ones you love with thoughtful gifts!

These gifts don't have to be for your significant other, either! That's the beauty of Valentine's Day- I feel like over the years it has become less of a "significant other" holiday and more of a "those you love" holiday (even if it is totally commercialized). A gift for your best friend, your sister or your Mom are totally acceptable and I am sure a welcomed surprise!

Here are some super cute Valentine's gifts for the "anyone" in your life. Even better...some of them are gifts that give back to breast cancer research!


This pink clutch comes with a set of limited-edition shades that complement each other perfectly for any occasion!It comes with Pure Color lipstick in limited-edition Dream Pink, and two mini Pure Color Nail Lacquers in limited-edition Blushing Lilac and Berry Hot. In support of Estee Lauder Companies' BCA Campaign, Estee Lauder will donate 20% of the suggested retail price ($29.50) from the sale to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF).


These are just plain adorable and totally appropriate for the holiday! Plus, they are under $20 so it won't break the bank. These would be such a cute gift for your bestie! 

This ring is not only cute, but it's adjustable, so you don't have to worry about getting the wrong size (its fully adjustable for sizes 4-10).  Handcrafted with white jade as the center stone, this would be the perfect gift! 

The Evelyn Lauder Dream Compact is a detailed, hand-crafted compact with a refillable Lucidity Translucent Pressed Powder. The pressed powder contains a special ingredient blend that diffuses light for flawless coverage and a luminous finish. Estee Lauder will donate 20% of the suggested retail price ($125) to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF). Isn't this compact so gorgeous?!

Nothing says Valentine's Day like hearts, am I right? These are adorable, dainty and perfect for everyday wear! These would make a great gift for any one in your life! 

Modern Muse is the newest fragrance in a limited-edition solid perfume compact. Modern Muse is inspired by today’s woman and complements every aspect of her dynamic life, and conveys confidence, style and creativity. It is a lush floral woody scent. Its innovative dual-impression structure features two contrasting aspects: Sparkling Jasmine Accord and Sleek Woods Accord. Estee Lauder will donate 100% (yes....100%) of the suggested retail price ($49.50) to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF)
I personally love their Marvelous Moxie lip line and have several of the lipsticks and lipglosses in ny makeup bag. I would love to get this as a gift! I mean, Valentine's Day and kissing kind of go hand in hand!

I've been a fan of these little emergency kits for a few years now. They are small enough in size to toss in your purse, but hold all the essentials any girl on the go might need from earring backs to breath freshener. They also have a huge selection of colors and prints! 

This is the perfect gift set! Not only does it come with two pairs of earrings, but it also comes with two makeup must haves: a highlighter (High Beam) and lip and cheek tint (Posietint), both from Benefit Cosmetics. 

Each one of these is hand cut, hand stitched and hand painted and is great addition to any set of keys! Not too over the top, but just enough to let someone know you are thinking about them! Another great gift from Blair's line is her new Travel tote. Loooove them!

I think this is just one of the most clever and thoughtful gifts ever, but fun too! To play, each participant picks three cards: one that says the person with whom the memory must include, (could be a friend, grandparent, sibling, etc); one says a time frame; the third has a prompt such as "that sound that still resonates" or "the accomplishment." The player then shares the memory from the three cards with the group. Perfect for family game night, dinner parties. It's a great way to relive memories and of course create new ones! 

Hopefully this has inspired you a little just in case you are in need of a gift for someone! 

Also, don't forget to enter to win a $50 gift card to Walgreens! They have teamed up with Neutrogena to give away five $50 gift cards! You can enter here. Good luck!
