V-Day Gifts for the Fashion Girl

Why does the world assume girls love pink? My closet is home to four pink items—I counted—and I can’t remember the last time I wore one of them. As a result, I’m rarely excited by Valentine’s Day gift guides.

For the ladies on the edgier side of the spectrum—or the significant others who want to know what to get them!—I’ve compiled affordable options you might actually want this year. It mixes items I’ve featured with new standouts I’ve been eager to share. Frosted lipgloss and floral perfume not included.

Shashi Solitaire Necklace Frends 'Layla' Gold Flake Headphones Diptyque 'Roses' Candle Daniel Wellington 'Classic Sheffield' Leather Strap Watch H[AMP]M Jacquard-Weave Coat Catbird Yellow Gold Alphabet Ring Smith [AMP] Cult 'Kundalini Hustle' Nail Polish Komono 'The Bennet' 54mm Sunglasses GiGi New York Slate Embossed Python iPhone 6/6s Hard-Shell Case McCrea's Candies Classic Vanilla Caramels Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon '500 Hidden Secrets of Paris' Book Le Labo Eau de Parfums Discovery Set BDB Eyelash Jewelry Dish Set Oscar de la Renta Classic Button Earring Only Hearts So Fine with Lace Bralette Nine West 'Shiso' Peep Toe Bootie Image Map

Beauty—Anastasia Beverly Hills’ contour kit makes sculpting your features Kardashian-style easy. Bite Beauty’s clear crayon turns any lipstick you own matte.

Fashion—H&M’s jacquard jacket is perfect for date night with all black everything and Nine West’s snake-embossed booties. Daniel Wellington’s classic watch is ideal for everyday. It comes in rose gold as well.

Home—Few things scream glam decor like a diptuqye, and their rose-scented candle smells delicious. Marie Farman’s 500 Hidden Secrets of Paris is the coffee table book topping my wish list.

Jewelry—Catbird’s alphabet rings are a forever favorite. Personal, stackable and so special. They come in sterling silver as a more cost-efficient option. Store them in BDB’s adorable eyelash jewelry dish set.

Tech—Frends’ limited-edition marble gold-flek headphones—a Nasty Gal exclusive!—are amazing in person. GiGi New York’s python-embossed phone case comes in seven colors, but I love the grey and gold.

Holiday Gift Guide: Home

I’m a total homebody, so this gift guide is the one I’m most excited about. Like clothes, I’m drawn to clean, minimalist decor. From cozy throws to gorgeous decanters, there’s a little something below for everybody.

Some personal faves: William-Sonoma’s monogram espresso cups bottom right (20% off! for a limited time), Reiko Kaneko’s lipstick mug right, Jayson Home’s hexagon wine rack middle and J.Crew’s windowpane flannel pajama set middle (40% off! with code GETGIFTS). You can never have too many pairs of comfy PJs. And who doesn’t need a book about two-minute chocolate mug cakes you make in the microwave?

Holiday Gift Guide: Glitz

Today’s gift guide is all about glitz. Glamorous pieces that could add a hint of excitement to daily outfits, work well for holiday parties or even New Year’s Eve. For the person in your life who’s mantra is ‘more is more,’ the items below are a look at that mentality through my minimalist lens.

A few standouts: Mango’s burgundy wool cocoon coat top right, J.Crew’s crystal burst earrings top middle (an extra 40% off! with code MONDAY) and Sole Society’s embellished envelope clutch bottom left.

I also love BaubleBar’s ‘Laurel’ collar necklace bottom right. It’s a stunner (and it’s only $68!).

Like last week’s gift guide, mostly everything featured is well under $100. Just click on each item directly to shop it!

Happy Monday, loves!
