Memo Valentines Gifts Under 100 Hero 16x9

Words by Ruby Devlin

Originally published on | January 31

If you’re wanting to participate in Valentines Day celebrations but are trying to play it right in the infancy of a new relationship (pre ‘what are we’ conversations), these thoughtful beauty gifts say “I enjoy spending time with you” without over-investing - emotionally or monetarily.

For the foodie

If they love to binge Claire Saffitz recipe videos, have an ever-growing cookbook collection and carry a travel sized Maldon flaky salt with them everywhere they go, we recommend a Flamingo Estate Roma Heirloom Tomato Candle. With the smell of fresh, juicy tomatoes straight from the garden, this candle will instantly transport them to a summer dinner party in Sicily. Hand-poured and made with 100% vegetable wax, it will be the fanciest addition to their kitchen – aside from their Le Creuset Dutch Oven.

For the person who prioritises good sleep

Are they a self-care lover who lives by the motto, 'Always be in bed by 9pm'? Give them a little something extra to add to their night-time routine. The kit: Good Night Balm is a rich cream that helps firm, smooth and hydrate the skin as you sleep. Plus, the calming smell of rosemary, lavender and sandalwood will help them wind down after even the most frantic days.

For the Cottagecore lover

If they spend their time daydreaming of warm country days spent gardening, baking and frolicking in overalls, we suggest the Baies Candle from Diptyque. With notes of blackcurrant and roses, this candle is arguably the most iconic from the French brand. And when the candle is done, they can clean out the glass and reuse it!

For the person who kisses their car goodnight

The DEDCool Air Fresheners are the perfect gift for the person whose Hinge profile featured one (or five) pictures of their car! Whether they prefer the uplifting sweetness of 'Taunt', the strong woodiness of '02' or the fresh, citrus-y 'Red Dakota' there is sure to be a scent they’ll love. Plus, they are all made from 100% recyclable paper so once they’re done, they can put them into their recycling bin!

For the person who uses 5-in-1 shower products

POV: you walk into the bathroom of your new fling and spot a do-it-all bathing product. While you suppress a full-body shudder, gift them the Malin+Goetz Rum Hand+Body Wash – a convenient multi-use product that’s just a touch more elevated. This gel wash is scented with the brand's signature dark rum scent and will leave their skin feeling clean and hydrated, not stripped. Plus, they can use it as a hand wash, body wash or even add a touch to a bath for a scented, foaming experience.

For the person who can't decide

Not sure what their skin type is? Not sure which blush shade they love the most? Not sure if they prefer fresh or sweet scents? Spoil them with the gift of choice and let them pick out their favourite with a MECCA gift card.
