#WOOSHAPPROVED: THE BEST GIFTS FOR YOUR BEST GALS
Valentine’s Day might not be for everyone (*almost entire population puts up hand!) and Galentine's Day sometimes feels a little too... well... you know what we mean. However, you’ve got to love an excuse to celebrate the fabulous females in your life, right? And what better way than with an awesome gift to prove just how much you love them?
One of our favorite things about the holidays is buying gifts for our nearest and dearest. Guilt-free shopping? Count us in. Then the new year comes along and bam, the season of gift-giving is history. Well, not quite. V-Day is just around the corner and Galentine's – the time for spoiling your gal pals – is also well and truly here. Don't subscribe to either of those? Yeah, we hear you. But excuses for celebrating your BFFs? We know you can get on board with that. So, feast your eyes on these awesome treats we’re currently adding to cart.
We know very few females who aren’t obsessed with scented candles. Right? And having tried almost every jar-filled thing of waxing beauty, we can’t recommend Otherland’s offerings enough. The warmly scented Rattan is a big favorite with the Woosh team but if you’re looking to really make your best bud smile, why not go big with The Valentine’s Gift Set? Complete with three of their prettiest scented candles – Daybed, Georgette and Boudoir Rouge (we mean, c’mon!) – it also comes with to-die-for packaging, its very own box of matches and a personalized message. We love.
If you’re looking to win them over with cuteness, look no further than these Lou Rota Nature Table Monogram Mugs from Anthropologie. Each vintage-inspired mug is lovingly monogrammed and handpainted with an animal or plant that begins with the same letter as their name. Think alpaca for ‘a’ and hibiscus for ‘h.’ We just wish all our friends’ names began with a ‘u’ so we could hoard all the unicorn mugs!
Yes, the perfect soft, cozy socks do exist and we are obsessed. All hail Giften Market Cozy Socks which need little explanation other than the fact that they’re ridiculously soft, uncannily warm, and they’re pink – without being too, like, in-your-face pink if you get what we mean…
If food is the way to your girls’ hearts then you cannot go wrong with this Valentine’s Ciccetti Cheese & Charcuterie Board from awesome, family-run business, Boarderie. We’re talking delicious cheeses, meats, nuts, chocolates, olives, crackers, the works. The recipient even gets to keep the fabulous acacia wood serving board it comes on. Actually, that would be weird if they had to send it back. But still. Yay for a quality cheese board to add to their collection!
Lip gloss: everyone's favorite beauty must-have.And why gift your pal just one when they can have double the fun with our Mini Lip Gloss Duo. Complete with two of our best-selling shades, Pink Natural and Beige Frosted, these wear-anywhere glosses can be applied alone, over lipstick or even layered together for super-glossy pink lips with a side of subtle shimmer. Check out our founder, Andrea, rocking exactly that on her IG feed.
You know it’s going to be a great day when cupcakes are involved. And, honestly, we feel instantly happier just looking at these Hickory Farms Best Sellers Cupcakes. Neatly packed into reusable jars, each sweet treat contains the equivalent of two cupcakes which means your giftee gets to enjoy eating two whole cupcakes with no judging. Just remember to caveat this gift with a ‘you’d better save one more for me’ note.
Who knew Gua Shas were so on theme with the season of love? Especially when they’re crafted from rose quartz. It’s like they planned it! We don’t know about you, but we’re probably going to gift these Lula’s Garden Valentine’s Day Gua Shas to our entire crew. Because who doesn’t wanna receive the gift of great skin?
Celebrate being a woman with a delve into the lives and unique tales of some of the world's most interesting and empowering females. Wisdom of Wildly Creative Women, by Angela Lomenzo is full of real-life stories packed with passionate anecdotes and inspiring words from truly great women. With stunning photography as an extra bonus we could not put it down. A definite keeper.
Remember the excitement and genuine thrill of getting a new pencil case before the start of each school year? Good times. Well, those good times can be here again if you just switch out the ultimate pencil case for an even better makeup bag! And we know we’re biased (sorry, not sorry) but our Prism Pouch offers all the feels to your besties. Not only will it pack all their favorite beauty essentials inside but it even comes with an extra dose of holographic ‘90s vibes to take you both right back to those glory days.
Sometimes, you just need to let a gift speak for itself. And this Sisters Before Misters T-Shirt says it all. Created by Los Angeles-based, artist-owned brand, Boredwalk this soft, quality tee comes in a variety of colors and is hand-printed in the USA with eco-friendly water-based inks. Loving that. And the message? Spot on.
Now have we found the perfect gift for the gal who loves her plants more than her S.O. Oh hi there Desert Love Hoya Heart Succulents. They might be tiny but these incredibly cute succulents literally scream ‘love.’ Hello, they’re freakin’ heart-shaped! What’s more, they come as a pair so you could totally keep one for yourself. They would never know, right?
