As much as I try to escape to Denial Isle, Valentine's Day is almost here. I know this because my stomach is in knots at the very thought of Russell Stover chocolates. And cherubic Cupid? I have a few choice words for him.
So when I got an invite to attend the Accessories Council Top Valentine's Day Gifts event, I dared them (psychically, of course) to wow me.
Last night I sat with my fashion-blogging compadres sipping MOET & Chandon and promising myself a cupcake after the presentation. I was ready to behold affordable and pretty perfect gifts for Valentine's Day. All right, enough with the talk, check out the goods:
(from left to right...sorta)
A GIFT CERTIFICATE FOR A MOUTH FACIAL (A $250 VALUE)* & ORAL THERAPY TOOTHPASTE FROM REJUVENATION DENTISTRY
A BOX OF VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES FROM CORNELIA GUEST
A CUPCAKE DECORATING KIT FROM CUPCAKE CUTIES
NEVER SAY NEVER SHAPING PANTIES FROM COSABELLA (p.s. I never thought a shaper could be SEXY!)
ULTRA CONDITIONER FROM HAIR RULES
MR. POSTMAN SATCHEL FROM KATHY VAN ZEELAND
A CHAIN-LINK SHOULDER BAG FROM B. MAKOWSKY
A BRACELET SET FROM JOAN BOYCE FOR HSN & RING FROM AVON
SOLID PERFUME FROM BOYFRIEND
3-D SUNGLASSES FROM CALVIN KLEIN & A $40 GIFT CARD FROM AMC THEATERS
A PAIR OF SLIPPERS FROM DEARFOAMS
A HEART-SHAPED BOX OF CHOCOLATES FROM GODIVA
A SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL WATCH FROM ARMITRON
For the record, after this event, I almost felt excited about Valentine's Day.
*I'll fill you in on the details (including teeth cleaning and facial massage) as soon as I go!
