Seattle Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2022

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and it's the perfect occasion to shop local and support Seattle's best designers, brands, and boutiques. From cards to candy, fashion, beauty products, and experiences, this round-up has something for everyone on your list. 

For the ladies in your life, this beautiful Boma Jewelry Rose Quartz Pendant from the Treasured Collection makes a great gift. Featuring upcycled bi-disc stones, this necklace is available in 14k gold plated and sterling silver. Last year, the brand celebrated 40 years in business with a series of Seattle pop-ups featuring local AAPI brands. Learn more about Boma's backstory here.

The Beloved Beanie by Sskein originally made its debut last fall and it's a classic gift that gives back. For every beanie sold, a new beanie is donated to Seattle non-profit Mary's Place. The Beloved Beanie by Sskein is available in 9 colors including Cameo Pink (shown above). 

Seattle brand Lulumiére makes beautiful, hand-poured candles using plant-derived ingredients that are good for you and the planet. Available in a variety of scents, the Chai & Cinnamon candle is perfect for Valentine's Day. 

If you're been curious about trying the Lip Blush beauty trend, look no further than local make-up artist and beauty expert Heidi Nymark. She offers a service called the "Sula Lip" that customizes the perfect lip shade for each client, creating a natural look that beauty fans will love. Gift the service to a friend or book a treatment for yourself. Check out the results on my lips, above. Book during the month of February and get $50 off your service by mentioning promo code SYDNEY. 

For those on your list who are currently binge-watching Yellowstone on Paramout+, chances are they've been admiring the fashion worn by lead character Beth Dutton. Her low-cut floral dresses and cowboy boots are epic and these pink Lydia boots by Rachel Comey, available at Corre, are a total vibe. 

I love Seattle brand The Cura Co. because they make it easy to shop for Valentine's Day with your values in mind by curating an amazing mix of ethical brands. Their Black-Owned Gift Set features a Clarifying Face Mask by Ilera Apothecary, loose-leaf herbal tea by QBIPOC brand Aesthete Tea, and a fine art print by Marsha Robinson of Strange Dirt. Pick up this great gift set from the store or have the box shipped directly to your Valentine. 

This "Satin Mood" French fragrance by Maison Francis Kurkdjian is a great gift for beauty fans. Featuring notes of geranium, cinnamon, roses, and violet blossoms, a spritz of this parfum will definitely put romance in the air. Available locally at Nordstrom. 

Australian brand Frankie4 recently opened a beautiful new storefront in Seattle and their Mim II Blush Braid sneaker makes a beautiful gift for Valentine's Day. Podiatrist-designed to be stylish and good for your feet, this lightweight shoe features adjustable heel, arch, and foot support. Also available in white. 

I didn't understand all the fuss about the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer until my husband suprised me with one last year. I can honestly tell you, it's a TOTAL game changer. I have long, thick hair and this dryer saves me so much time. It used to take me 20-25 minutes to blow dry my hair in sections. With this dryer, I can dry my hair (without putting it into sections) in 7 minutes flat. Totally worth the splurge for your VIP Valentine. 

Help your Valentine relax and unwind with CBD oil by Seattle brand Two Cranes. The Attune 
Full Spectum CBD oil in 300+ mg is fast-absorbing and helps with stress, anxiety, and inflammation. Two Cranes CBD oils are made without herbicides, solvents, preservatives or fillers. They are also non-psychoactive and contain less than .3% THC. 

The Knours Komplete Kit from K Banana contains all my favorite k-beauty essentials and makes a great Galentine's Day gift.  This set features One Perfect Youth Cream, Your Only Cleanser, Double Duty Mist, and a pair of Sweet Enough Rescue Masks all packaged in an eco-friendly, biodegradable pouch that is great for travel. 

Cute notebooks, blank pages, endless possibilities. This trio of notebooks from Chez Gagné, available at Seattle boutique Foundation on Queen Anne, makes a gift for great Valentine's Day. They're small enough to tuck into a jacket pocket or handbag and perfectly sized for capturing moments of inspiration. 

It's a Golden Galentines, no but really. This adorable card available locally at Paper Source is exactly the kind of snail mail I want to give and receive on Valentine's Day. We miss you, Betty White! 

Set the mood for a romantic night in with this delicate incense burner from L'Objet, available locally at Flora & Henri. Scent has the power to transport us to another place and time and while we may not be able to travel as often as we used to, this incense burner is a great gift that can help recapture those precious memories. Made from porcelain and presented in a luxury gift box, this is the perfect Valentine's Day gift for a night in. Don't forget the incense sticks

You can't go wrong on Valentine's Day with a classic Red Velvet cupcake. Trophy Cupcakes masters this best-selling treat with traditional buttermilk cake paired with a hint of cocoa and topped with a swirl of cream cheese frosting. Shop the full assortment of Valentine's Day treats from Trophy Cupcakes here

Low key and perfect for a cozy Valentine's Day snuggle session, this crewneck sweatshirt featuring a lipstick kiss is available at Emry boutique and makes a great gift. Like many people, I've been living in sweatshirts during the pandemic and this one is SUPER cute. 

A spa day is always a good idea, especially when it's at the new Yuan Spa location at The Village at Totem Lake. Savvy spa fans will enjoy the new range of Ultraceutical Facials while purists will enjoy a Yuan Chinese signature massage. Stop by the spa to purchase a gift card in person or shop online and send a gift card via email. 

If you're looking for something fun to do around town to celebrate Valentine's Day, don't miss the Lipsology event at W Seattle featuring certified lipsologist Deni Luna. The event is taking place on Thursday, Feb. 10 from 5-8 p.m. in the Living Room bar. Register here

W Seattle is also offering a special Skyline Valentine hotel package now through the end of February that includes a room, 2 cocktails, an in-room dining experience, and an intimacy kit.  During your visit, don't miss the Indi-gogo cocktail featuring a fashionable twist on a classic gin and tonic, inspired by Pantone's 2022 Color of the Year, Very Peri (shown below).
