6 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Your Bestie

I may be in a relationship, but Josh and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. I definitely prefer to have a girl’s night in with wine, Netflix and sushi. In honor of celebrating Valentine’s Day with your best friends, here are so awesome (and inexpensive) gift ideas for your BFF on the 14th.

1| Marble Notebook from Francesca’s, $14

Because who doesn’t want a notebook when you can track all your plans, ideas and #GirlBoss goals?! You can never go wrong with a simple gift like this for your best friend because it’s something she will always be able to use. P.S. I’m loving that the marble trend is still in for 2017!

2| Macron Rose Fragrance from Urban Outfitters, $18

I know so many people who love this perfume collection from Urban Outfitters. What’s better is that you can buy her this Macron Rose scent, and also pick up some macaroons to snack on as well. It’s the perfect gift combination! If you’re worried about her be picky about a fragrance, save the receipt if an exchange is needed.

3| Love iPhone Case from Forever 21, $8 

Phone cases are still in and who wouldn’t love a themed case for Valentine’s Day? Personally, I love when people have different phone cases to change out based on the time of year, so this would be the perfect addition to any phone case collection your bestie has.

4| The World Book of Love from Anthropologie, $25

If your best friend loves to read, or have cute coffee table books in her living room, pick up this unique gift from Anthropologie. It’s a collection of insights and testimonies from people all over the world about love. With 100 researchers from 50 countries summarize their particular views on the subject in 1000 words.

5| Be My Heart Pens from Barnes & Noble, $10

I don’t know about you, but I love fun, cute pens. Plus, there are something that everyone needs in their office. So, why not grab this cute, inexpensive set from Barnes & Noble? You can even add in a Starbucks gift card, and a journal (see #1) to have a complete, themed gift!

6| Valentine’s Day Wine Glass from Target, $22

Umm, need I say more? There’s nothing better than wine. Grab this wine glass for your bestie (grab one for yourself, too because #treatyoself) and get your wine on all night long as you binge-watch anything and everything on Netflix. Let’s be real, wine is every girl’s valentine!
