Whether you're celebrating February 14 with a significant other, your closest friends, or by yourself, receiving one of the best Valentine's Day beauty gifts always add a special touch to the hearts and flowers holiday. Even if they'd gladly receive a large box of chocolates or freshly cut bouquet for the occasion, unboxing a hydrating massage oil or heart-shaped skincare tool will quickly set the holiday mood.
And if you're not looking to be super overt with your surprise this Valentine's Day, we've spotted a number of Cupid-adjacent eyeshadow palettes and hypnotic scents from Byredo, The Maker, and others that come beauty expert-approved. To make choosing a gift for next month practically effortless, we've narrowed down some of the best Valentine's Day beauty gifts available for a self-love treat, or thoughtful surprise for a friend or beau.
Dream Lip Oil
One of the best gifts you can get yourself is an easy lip oil that not only deeply hydrates, but also leaves behind a hint of color. This one from Summer Fridays fits the bill, and happens to be available in four color options if you really feel like treating yourself on the 14th.
GG Heart Barrette in Pink
Help keep hair out of their face while channeling '90s style, with this adorable heart-shaped resin barrette from Gucci. It's even adorned with a crystal trim for a little extra sparkle.
Glossier You Perfume Solid
The Glossier You solid perfume is nicely alcohol-free, and uses a wax base to seamlessly melt into the skin. If they're not already fans of the cult-classic scent, we're betting its ambrette, musk, and pink pepper-blend will be their new favorite for every day wear.
Playdate Gift Set
Make it easy to arrange a play date with your beau next month with this two-piece bundle. It contains Fleur du Mal's versatile silk blindfold, as well as a warming plant-based intimacy oil from the experts at Playground.
Restorative Floral Bath
Add flowers to their bath instead of a vase, with this soothing and restorative bath milk that features a blend of shea butter, green tea oil, jasmine, and plumeria, plus gem deposits from malachite and quartz.
The Pink Valentine Lipstick Set
La Bouche Rouge's Pink Valentine lipstick works for just about every skin tone, making it an easy gift for all of your makeup-loving Galentines. Its moisturizing formula contains a blend of vitamin E, vegetable squalene, shea butter, and jojoba oil to keep their lips hydrated, plus, plumping hyaluronic acid.
Hinoki Massage Set
Few things set the Valentine's Day mood better than a nice massage, and this hinoki wood tool from Tatcha serves as the perfect companion to their favorite body oil. Not only will it fit comfortably in the palm of their hands for a targeted massage, but also can be used as an aromatic diffuser.
Here's a Valentine's—or any time— gift that's perfect you and your beau. It includes Dame's versatile sex wedge pillow for sturdy support, along with the brand's hands-free couple's vibrator.
Wash No. 3
They'll receive two gifts in one, with this set of pH-balancing body washes, which also happen to double as a luxurious bubble bath solution—just pour directly into warm running water.
Daisy Eau So Fresh Eau de Toilette
This slightly fresher take on Marc Jacobs's culty Daisy fragrance is a hit for over 1,400 Sephora shoppers, with one writing that its musky, pink grapefruit blend is, "Beautifully light and clean smelling."
Rose Quartz Eye Mask
Since rose quartz is known for its love and healing properties (and happens to be the perfect shade of holiday pink), we highly recommend snagging them this de-puffing eye mask from celebrity esthetician Angela Caglia.
Love Sleep Pleasure Seeker Kit
Give your bedroom an extra boost on the 14th with this ylang-ylang and patchouli-scented pillow spray. The scent aims to encourage relaxation and a feeling of well-being to help get you in the mood, and even comes with a blindfold to help enhance its sensorial power.
State of Emotion Eyeshadow Palette
Here's a limited-edition eyeshadow palette they'll enjoy using well after Valentine's Day. It features five pigmented metallic and shimmer shades inspired by the tonalities of love.
Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum
We consider Viktor & Rolf's top-rated Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum one of the best fragrances of all time. And while its combination of vanilla, jasmine, and orange blossom notes is timeless, it also makes a great gift to surprise a friend or family member with on the 14th.
Belle Bow Barrette
Making a Valentine's statement is a no-brainer with this dazzling barrette from Jennifer Behr. Its art deco-inspired design can quickly accent a LBD, or their favorite pair of jeans, and features dozens of hand-embroidered crystals.
Uplifting Gua Sha Heart
You can literally give someone your heart this season, thanks to this decorative Gua Sha. It also nicely makes daily facial massage a breeze.
Silk Linen Flip & Eye Mask Bundle
Optimize their beauty rest with this linen and Mulberry silk pillowcase set, which also includes a comfy eye mask to block out light.
Love Trance Eau de Parfum Refill & Bracelet
With fragrant notes of ylang yang extract, tuberose, and hazelnut accord, your galentine can easily put anyone in a love trace with this refillable perfume spray and bracelet from By Far.
Bed of Roses Nail Polish Set
This polish set from Deborah Lippmann is called Bed of Roses for a reason: The nail expert in your circle will be thrilled to receive six of the brand's pink, nude, and purple-toned favorites, which help relieve the pressure of choosing a color at the salon.
Baggage Claim Eye Masks
Here's a gift that can help them get ready for date night. Wander Beauty's six-pack of Instagram-friendly rose gold under-eye patches not only plump and brighten dark circles with ingredients like camu camu extract and hyaluronic acid, but also cool and soothe upon contact.
Special Edition Lava Sparkler Iron
Dazzle your favorite hair enthusiast with this sparkly, one-inch ceramic flat iron that's covered in over 3,000 crystals, and heats up to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lover Eau de Parfum
The Maker's aptly named Eau de Parfum was among the top picks beauty tastemakers loved in 2023. "Once I started wearing it, without fail someone would comment that I smelled amazing and demand to know what scent I had on (which is, low-key, my favorite compliment to receive)," beauty editor and brand consultant Hannah Baxter recently told Bazaar. "It’s lush and hot, with notes of fig, sandalwood, and jasmine, and the ribbed glass bottle looks refined and expensive in the best way."
The Scrunchie Duo
Help them romanticize their hair accessories with options that aren't red, white, or pink for the 14th. This set of oversized satin and organza scrunchies from Ceremonia adds instant elegance to any slick bun or high ponytail with ease.
Delight your valentine with a box of roses on the 14th—well, sort of. They can enjoy the holiday-ready scent in February and beyond with Aesop's rose-themed body care bundle. In addition to its status hand balm, your giftee will also unbox the brand's body cleanser and Rōzu eau de parfum.
You can give them your heart and the perfect lighting for their next selfie all in one with this on-theme lighting attachment. It includes five brightness options and a shatter-proof mirror to help create endless memories.
