The box of chocolates. A set of teardrop diamond earrings. A bouquet of roses.
Another Valentine’s Day. Another cliche.
Sure, these gifts are the embodiment of the Love Holiday. Hardly anyone would refuse a quality box of Belgian chocolates, especially with roses included.
But it’s time for a gift upgrade this year, one that will take your V-Day celebration from yawn to “YES!” in 30 seconds or less.
And it all starts when you bring a little silk to the Valentine’s Day gift-giving table.
Why Tried-and-True Valentine’s Day Gifts Don’t Always Please
Certainly, there’s nothing wrong with giving a box of chocolates to someone you love on Valentine’s Day. But with the advent of holidays, like Galentine’s Day on February 13th, the meaning of the Ode-to-Love holiday has changed over the years.
Valentine's Day once only celebrated the realm of romantic love. But the holiday has now become a way to celebrate love in all forms...the love between sisters, mothers and daughters, and even a group of besties.
Some gifts – jewelry and roses, in particular – still have a romantic association. As such, a pair of best friends or two sisters may not want to go with the old standbys.
Luxury Valentine’s Day Gifts: Some Fresh V-Day Ideas for You
Blissy’s silk pillowcases, hair scrunchies, and sleep masks bring the right touch of class to Galentine’s gift-giving. They’re such a treat to unwrap.
All our luxury silk products make excellent gifts. But we’ve noticed that three, in particular, tend to be popular as gift items from women to women.
1) Blissy Silk Pillowcases
Proper hair hydration means more than just using the right shampoo and conditioner. It also means buying products that keep your hair from getting brittle while you sleep. (Brittle equals breakage.)
Sleeping on Blissy Silk Pillowcases is like undergoing an all-night hydration treatment for hair. The properties of silk are such that it keeps the oils of your hair on your hair, leaving your hair soft and less prone to breakage.
It also hydrates your face to fight aging.
One mom had this to say about the Blissy Silk Pillowcases she bought for herself and her daughters.
"I bought one for each of my daughters and myself. All of us just love it. I don’t think I’ll ever use a regular pillowcase again."
2) Blissy 9-Piece Scrunchie Set
Your hair hydration efforts don't need to stop with a silk pillowcase. Blissy also makes silk hair scrunchies in an amazing assortment of colors, like hot pink. Blissy scrunchies are extra gentle on the hair and never snag or cause dents.
Aside from their usefulness, they’re just plain pretty. Our 9-Piece Scrunchie Set keeps the luxury vibe that a silk pillowcase does. Yet one of them looks perfectly smashing during a V-Day lunch out with the girls. Even though they're made of silk, they stay put and don’t slip and slide off the hair.
One recent review explained it this way.
"I had trouble with my hair ties always pulling on my hairline and these scrunchies are amazing. [...] Super soft but still a tight hold so it won’t just slip right out."
3) Blissy Sleep Masks
Just as Blissy's silk pillowcases are like a hydration treatment for hair, Blissy sleep masks are one for the face. Silk’s soft texture pampers the skin around your eyes the same way it pampers your hair when you sleep on a silk pillowcase.
Additionally, Blissy Sleep Masks coupled with Blissy Silk Pillowcases and Blissy’s Sleep & Pillow Mists make for a cozy night in on V-Day. They’re the perfect luxury if you’ve decided that you’re going to be romancing your own life this Valentine’s season. You’ll love the way you look on V-Day morning.
As one Blissy customer put it:
"I tried this Blissy Sleep Mask and it’s so comfy. I’ve been using it every night since purchasing. I definitely recommend!"
Final Thoughts on Alternative V-Day Gifts
It’s unlikely that couples will stop celebrating romantic love on Valentine’s Day. But these days, V-Day is about so many more kinds of love than just romantic love. So the gifts we give to those special gals we love should reflect love in all its forms. From the love we have for our besties to the amore we feel for our one-and-only.
So make sure to shop now from Blissy for the special ladies in your life to show them you care!
