Best Valentine’s Gifts for Her

by | Jan 28, 2020 | Gifts, Style

Yesterday, I shared the Best Valentines Gift Guide for Him and today it’s all about you! Presenting the Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her.

As always, I have curated a boutique of gifts I know that YOU will love in a variety of price points I know HE will love, too!  Several of these items are things I have and love and are also on the Top 50 Reader Favorites for 2019. That is another great resource for Gifts.

First, I want to highlight this beautiful Michele watch in the dusty pink. The gray version was on Top 50 Reader Favorites for 2019 and was a top gift for her this past holiday season. This beautiful soft pink is a great neutral for spring and summer.

Jewelry is always a great idea whether it is a versatile statement cuff or beautiful earrings.  These are also always the right size! This gorgeous pair of sparklers was a gift from my parents for my birthday and a top seller for the holiday season and for 2019.  I’ve worn them several times in the past few weeks and received a lot of compliments.  They are very light-weight, too.

A beautiful piece of jewelry that I want to highlight for you is the Annabell necklace from Hazen and Co. Taylor Turner, designer and founder of Hazen, is such a talent. Her joy and beauty shine through in all of her designs. Stay tuned for a special collaboration with her coming soon.  Another favorite of her designs is the Margaret bracelet in her signature brushed gold beads and the Betty bracelet.  These signature stacking bracelets are extremely versatile and fun collection to build.

Fragrance is always one of my favorite gifts to give and receive. Top of my list this year is the Aqua Florentina from Creed, a very special fragrance house. The new Aventus for Her fragrance is a companion fragrance to the Aventus for Him that my hubby wears.  Creed’s Spring Flower was created for Audrey Hepburn.

I always recommend my signature fragrances by Joe Malone: Red Roses and Velvet Rose and Oud. I get stopped, without fail, every time I wear the Velvet Rose and Oud! I love that each of her fragrances also is available in bath oil, shower gel, body cream, candles and diffusers. Each of them also make wonderful gifts.

Two of my favorite gifts this holiday season were the Lee Radziwill Black Croc Printed Clutch from my husband and the Tamara Mellon Front Line Sandals from my parents. They are so great to shop my gift guides and have gotten good and the hints I drop! This convertible clutch is the perfect size to hold your necessities and so chic. It is another item you will have in your wardrobe for decades. There is also a detachable gold chain that tucks easily inside. The tomorrow melon front line sandal comes in several colors and is a great wardrobe staple. I received the nude but you know the black is also on my list. They are also a lower heel height than the heeled sandal I wear most often. The simple design is still very unique. Another style you will wear for years.

You know I love a great handbag.  This bag is a great statement piece. Understated and simple but luxurious. The gorgeous dark camel version was a gift from my parents for my birthday this year. This is another classic piece I know I will have in my wardrobe for a long time.

This oversized alpaca sweater in blush is one of my favorites. I received it in the camel for Christmas and wear the charcoal color on repeat in the fall and winter. This is another style staple in my wardrobe that has become a go to. This is another item I am constantly asked about when I wear it in any of the colors.

If you don’t have a pair of Birdies Slippers put these on your list. I have featured the Phoebe Floral Jacquard version of the mule in the collage above. I bought these in December and they were the only shoe I could wear when I broke my toes! This is my third pair of Birdies and I love them!  Don’t let “slipper” fool you.  These are for wear outside the house as well!  I gave this version of the full slipper to my mother for Christmas and she agrees that they are like walking on air! I can’t wait to try a pair of their sandals.

Below you’ll find the boutique filled with the rest of the items I have curated for this Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her. I’ve left notes on each item so you know the reason they made my list.



So many of you are still completing the Reader Style Survey, I’m leaving it open until Friday!  I so appreciate you sharing your feedback with me and can’t wait to announce the winners of the $200 gift cards on Monday, February 3!

One of the ways I am taking advantage of the forced pause is creating the habit of exercise for myself. I don’t talk about exercise much on AWL because, well, I don’t usually do it. But that is changing!
