Hey lovely people,
Valentine’s day is just around the corner. Trust me, no one likes a last minute trashy gift. I have done ‘Gift Ideas’ post for this occasion before too, with ideas about products from various different stores. However, this time I am basing all ideas on my favorite online shopping site, iHerb, which is an amazing US based site that offers world’s best value plus also ships worldwide ultra fast via DHL (Other shipping methods available too).
This gift guide is mostly a ‘For Her’ guide with just 3 suggestions ‘For Him’. I have categorized the gift ideas to make it easy to browse/read. Give something thoughtful to your loved one, instead of just some flowers or a cuddly toy!. These are just a few examples. There are tonnes more on the site.
1] For the makeup addict
Brush sets are a great gift to give to someone who loves makeup. Here are 3 that caught my eye :
♡ Real Techniques has introduced a Limited Edition Deluxe Gift Set with 5 brushes and a gorgeous clutch, recently. Actually priced at $30 (AED 110.19), iHerb is offering it for a special price of $18.99 (AED 69.75) for a limited time!
