10 of the Best Valentine’s Day Gifts For Yourself 2022.
Ah Valentine’s Day. The day of love! From red roses and giant teddy bears to candlelit dinners and romantic trips away, it’s the one day of the year dedicated to showing love and appreciation. In 2022, the idea that gifts for Valentine’s Day should be exclusively for those in romantic relationships seems archaic. This year, we’re choosing to celebrate friends, colleagues and most importantly ourselves with a beauty gift for Valentine’s Day.

We all spend so much time rushing about and trying to tick off the day job, a gym session, the school run and food shop, that we neglect our needs. Why not take the 14th of February as a cue to embrace some guilt-free self-gifting and treat yourself to one or two self-love gifts. We’ve curated the perfect roundup of gifts for Valentine’s Day, including the classic but chic fragrance gift set and limited edition rose-inspired scented candle, alongside the in-demand beauty gadget and skin-reviving face mask.

While almost everyone we know would be thrilled to unwrap these treats, they’re also perfect beauty gifts for yourself. Skin feeling a little bit lacklustre, but you haven’t had the time to book in a facial? We’ve got you. Desperate for a luxurious bubble bath? We’ve got you. Winter blues got you looking a little pale? We’ve got you. Whatever you need to help curb the stress and anxiety that the last two years have brought, you’ll find the perfect tonic with our edit of self-love gifts.

10 Best Self Love Valentine’s Day Gifts 2022

Summer Fridays

Jet Lag Mask, $26.00

What better way to embrace some self-love than pampering yourself and treating your skin to a dose of hydration? Summer Fridays Jetlag Mask helps to revive and plump tired, stressed skin. Packed with vitamin C, niacinamide and ceramides, this mask does it all.


Maison Margiela

Replica Lazy Sunday Morning Candle, $58.50

A scented candle is hands down one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for yourself. Smell is one of the most powerful senses and has the ability to recall memories and instantly transport you to a particular place in time. Blending the scent of freshly ground coffee in the morning with lavender and fresh bedsheets, lighting Lazy Sunday Morning by Maison Margiela is the perfect way to start your weekend.



Super Glow Hyaluronic Self-Tan Serum, $19.50

[copy]When you’re thinking of gifts for Valentine’s Day, fake tan might not be the first beauty product to spring to mind, but bear with us. It’s February and the weather is grey and gloomy, and the warm, hazy glow of summer feels like a long way away. While we can’t change the weather for you, we have found a way of giving you that toasty summer glow. Tan-Luxe’s revolutionary self-tan serum drops not only give you that bronzed finish, but they also help to hydrate and plump skin thanks to the inclusion of hyaluronic acid.



Roses Scented Candle - Limited Edition, $76.00

Turn your home into a cosy cocoon with this limited-edition rose candle from Diptyque. As soon as you light the wick, a waft a freshly bloomed roses will filter through the room, which in our opinion is much more satisfying than a traditional bouquet of roses. What we love most about this particular candle though, is that once you’ve finished it the packaging doubles up as a container for brushes, jewellery or even some flowers. Here’s to sustainable gifting!



Mini Facial Toning Device, $209.00

You know what they say about dynamite and small packages. Continuing the theme of self-love gifts, we have NuFACE’s Mini Toning Device. We like to refer to it as a facialist in a box as this clever tool helps to lift, contour and smooth your skin. It’s the kind of beauty gadget that will supercharge the rest of your beauty routine.


Charlotte Tilbury

K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick, $34.00

Charlotte Tilbury declared that ‘red lipstick is instant glamour’ and we’re with her. Red is the colour of love, but did you also know that it also symbolises passion, confidence, sensuality, and determination? Charlotte Tilbury’s K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick is full bodied and leaves an impression. Enriched with nourishing extracts and UV protectants, it leaves your lips feeling irresistibly smooth and the colour stays in place all evening, leaving you free to laugh, eat and sip on those bubbles with your girlfriends! Our go-to shades are Love Bite, Night Crimson and Coral Kiss.



Blush, $19.20

You’ve heard it on Tiktok but we’re going to repeat it here: gorgeous, gorgeous girls always over blush gorgeous, gorgeous girls are always in a rush! NARs blush is a cult classic and for good reason. The weightless formula allows you to blend seamlessly and provides a natural finish that’s buildable for anyone who wants a stronger finish. We are a fan of this blush because it’s for everyone and works for every skin tone thanks to a very wide shade selection.



Wellbeing Pod, $123.50

If you’re big into your home fragrance, then Neom Wellbeing Pod will be the ultimate self-love gift. Choose your favourite essential oils blend, click it in, switch on the diffuser and relax. There’s a choice of scent intensity too, so you can tailor it entirely to how you feel in that moment.


Laura Mercier

Tinted Moisturiser Oil Free Natural Skin Perfector, $48.00

Lately, we have seen a rise in the glass skin and minimal makeup trends and now you can jump on the bandwagon with Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturiser. The lightweight sheer coverage helps to blur blemishes and even out your complexion, giving you an I-woke-up-like-this feel. We love this oil-free formula as it doesn’t clog your pores and helps to curb shine, even at four o’clock in the afternoon.



The Body Wash Eucalyptus, $25.00

A bubble bath is synonymous with a self-care and Nécessaire is the body care brand that is on everyone’s lips right now. The brand’s Body Wash doubles up a bubble bath and the fresh eucalyptus scent smells authentic rather than synthetic. From the recyclable, minimalist packaging to the niacinamide and omega-6 enriched formula and uplifting scent, there is nothing about this body wash we don’t love, and we guarantee they’ll love it too.
