Lindsay Wigo



It’s almost Valentine’s Day which means you have to have plans, right? Wrong.

If you’re looking to treat yourself (or some of your gals or guys) to gifts this Valentine’s Day season, here are 10 items that would make the perfect present. These are even perfect for you if you’re looking to treat yourself!

1. The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton


If you’re looking for a good psychological thriller about a relationship gone wild, get ready to get your hands on The Perfect Girlfriend. This book drops in the US on March 26, 2019. However, it is available for pre-order on Amazon here! Treat yourself or one of your best friends to this surprise when it shows up next month. 

2. Silk sleep mask


This new item is very trendy right now— and for the right reasons. Silk sleep masks are soft, gentle on the eyes and allow for a lengthy restful night’s sleep. They are available on Amazon (here is a light pink one), and make the perfect self-care item for you and your friends. 

3. The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo

If you love magical realism or have a BFF who loves a mystical read, purchase The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo! This book was released yesterday and is available here on Amazon. This is the perfect gift to give to an avid reader, or to someone who loves stories about otherworldly experiences.

4. Jade roller 


If you or your friends love skincare products, definitely consider buying a jade roller. Jade rollers are great for soaking moisturizer into the skin and they also promote anti-aging! Purchase one here if you’re looking for a creative gift for a beauty guru in your life. 

5. Essential oil diffuser

If you’ve never tried aromatherapy, you’re missing out! Essential oil diffusers are just that— essential. Until you’ve tried one, you won’t understand how calming it is to have your favorite scents permeating the air. Diffusers are sold in many stores, but here is a popular one on Amazon. 10/10 would definitely recommend.

6. Coffee mug

Especially if you’re a college student, you know how important coffee can be. If you love coffee or know a coffee enthusiast, buy them a new coffee mug! It’s a perfect reminder of your friendship and a great gift if he/she likes to also unwind with some tea at night. There are also adorable best friend mugs on Amazon that make an even more adorable gift.

7. Journal

If you have a writer in your life, buying a journal is a no-brainer. Whether it’s for planning to-do lists, writing a day’s agenda or nightly journaling, there are so many different types of journals that make adorable presents for anyone. Here is one that is all about starting a new adventure and traveling!

Whether or not you’re buying for someone special, you can still give your friends some Valentine’s Day treats this year! Check out these Valentine’s Day deals that are perfect if you’re searching for a friend— or wanting to treat yourself.
