February has arrived and there’s no better time to show yourself or those special people in your life some love! This month we’ve pulled together a list of perfect treats for Valentine’s Day, “Galentine’s Day” or just a regular old Tuesday! Drop some hints to your sweetie or just be sweet to yourself — it’s all about spreading the love!
FOR YOUR GALENTINE
Create some cocktails.
You don’t have to be single to spend Valentine’s Day with your girls. In the words of Michelle Obama, “I love my husband, and he is my rock, but my girlfriends are my sanity.” Celebrate with the ladies you love the most with this “Galentine’s Day” book, loaded with amazing food and cocktail recipes for you and your gals to savor. Find it for $16.99 at Home Inspired.
You have a “pizza” my heart.
Working out is so much easier when you have a buddy to endure the burn with. This funny and extremely relatable water bottle makes the perfect gift for your treadmill partner. Just be sure to get pizza after your workout! Find it for $20 at Celebrations.
You “bake” me crazy!
Mug cakes are all the rage, because who wants to make an entire cake for just one person? Okay, we do — but we shouldn’t! Not only is this cake mug adorable, but it also has a recipe for fun-fetti cake on the back. It’s perfect for a Valentine’s Day treat or for a regular old Tuesday — no judgments here. Find this cake mug for $14 at FRESH Boutique 4 Girls.
Benedictine is addicting.
A Louisville love and the perfect dip for ladies’ night — benedictine might be better than having a boyfriend. Throw a Galentine’s Day tea party and serve up some delicate cucumber sandwiches for a fun and fancy celebration. Find our favorite benedictine for $6 at The Cheddar Box.
You’re the bomb!
Bath bombs are everywhere these days, and you can find anything from luxury eucalyptus-scented bombs from Naples, France, to DIY unicorn-colored bombs. They’re great for relaxation and give us an excuse to sit in the tub until our fingers turn to prunes. We highly recommend these natural bath bombs in the pearberry, lavender and Tahiti sweetie fragrances, because they not only smell like heaven, but they’re locally made too! Find them for $2.95 each at Cordial Lee.
We like you a latte.
Mmmm … coffee. Coffee is the giver of our morning “mojo” and the provider of our early-morning sanity, and now coffee is so much more than that. Coffee grounds can be used as a mechanical exfoliate, which means they gently slough away dead skin cells to reveal new, healthy, vibrant skin. That’s why we love this Taylor Lee “french roast” coffee scrub. The coffee in the scrub improves circulation, giving us smooth, glowing skin. We cannot “espresso” how much we love it. Find this magical coffee scrub for $28.50 at 7 Southern Giraffes.
You’re our cup of tea.
Bubble baths, bath bombs and now — bath tea! This lavender mint bath tea smells so good, you’ll want to drink your bath water — but we don’t recommend that. Relax in a warm, fragrant bath and feel your troubles melt away. Find this bath tea in a variety of scents for $15 each at Peace of the Earth.
You’re worth it, valentine.
Treat yourself this Valentine’s Day to Aveda’s Tulasara Aveda Dual Exfoliation Peel. This non-invasive, skin-renewing treatment combines naturally derived mechanical and biochemical exfoliation methods into one powerful, beauty-enhancing punch. The treatment delivers immediate, visible results in improved skin texture and radiance, smoothed appearance of fine lines and refined pores for younger-looking skin. Find this peel for $125 at Omagi.
We like ’em sweet and Southern.
We all know a quintessential Southern woman who needs this sign in her life. It pretty much sums up everything there is to know about a Southern Belle. Give it as a gift, and she’ll be so delighted she’ll bless your heart. Find this sign for $22 at 7 Southern Giraffes.
You had us at “merlot.”
If there are two things Louisville women love, it’s bourbon and wine. Combine the two with this bourbon barrel stave to show off your fancy wine glasses and favorite bottle of merlot. It’ll make a beautiful addition to your dining room or kitchen, and your guests will love it. Find it for $40 at Revelry Boutique Gallery.
I’ve had the time of my life.
This gorgeous antique clock is the perfect addition to any home. Its chic metal frame complements the Old World patina within. Find this beautiful clock for $102 at Set The Stage.
A Valentine’s Day look
Whether you have a date on Valentine’s Day or you just want to dress up to treat yourself, this effortlessly chic and on-trend look will dazzle. Find this hat for $28 and dress for $64 at Six Sisters Boutique. And if you’re too busy for retail therapy between now and Valentine’s Day, Six Sisters just launched their online shop, so now you can get all of their styles from the comfort of your own home.
A piece of our hearts
Give a little piece of your heart with these beautiful sterling silver necklaces. Make them a family gift by giving them to all of the women in your immediate family — sisters, daughters and your mother. It’s a sweet gift to bring you all together. Find them for $35 each at Home Inspired.
Flowers and more flowers
Spring is on the horizon, and so is Derby! We absolutely love this floral print bag, because it can go with a casual spring look or be the perfect accessory to go with your Derby dress and hat. Find it for $38 at Collections.
143 = I love you
Treat yourself or a loved one to this Valentine’s Day bundle special. It includes a Dixie Soul ‘143’ shirt — code for “I love you” — your choice of a dozen red or pink rose bouquet and a two-piece Cellar Door Chocolate treat. This bundle includes delivery to the Metro Louisville area and Oldham County, and it can be ordered in store or by phone at (502) 222-1626. Orders must be placed by Friday, February 9. Find this love bundle for $99 at Blooms by Essential Details.
Pearls for the girls
We just love little local shops in Louisville, and we absolutely adore these mother-of-pearl marquise earrings. They’re perfect for a business-casual day of networking, a night on the town with the girls or a romantic date with your beau. Find them for $25 at Finds Design.
Wine is our valentine!
It’s just not Valentine’s Day if it doesn’t include wine — and even if you don’t have a date night plan, you can still celebrate! Light some candles, strike up your favorite love songs and chillax with some wine and the most important person in your life: you! The shirt says it all. Find it for $25 at Apricot Lane.
