This gift set includes two lip colors by Besame Cosmetics and Wander Beauty; one lip plumper by GrandeLIPS; one mascara by MILK Makeup, and the Original Makeup Eraser (aka the best makeup remover tool known to men.)

This creamy, long-wearing formula instantly accentuates lip curves and provides essential moisture. Formulated with a Phyto-Endorphin Complex, it allegedly gives the recipient rushes of happy. Can't get better than that!

That is why any beauty addict will scream with delight when they discover this super cute and tremendously hydrating bath treat. Handmade in the USA with love.

6. Rose Gold Palette by Huda Beauty ($65): This eyeshadow palette is like the Holy Grail of the #beautyobsessed. Just check Instagram if you don't believe me! Highly pigmented and packed with an array of 18 gorgeous matte and iridescent unique shades, this palette is like a diamond ring to a lady's beauty bag.

7. Daily Renewal Treatment by Golden Door ($88): Want to give a luxurious gift under $100? Look no more! The very well-known Golden Door Spa has recently launched their latest treatment, rich in all-natural Alpha Hydroxy, Lactic, Glycolic, Malic and Tartaric Acids. This cutting-edge serum works wonders on all skin types by gently removing pollutants (aka nasty toxins), reducing the appearance of fine lines, smoothing discoloration areas and reducing the size of the pores. This is literally a radiant complexion in a bottle, so believe me when I say that yeah, your Valentine will LOVE this gift.

15. Hawaiian Body Scrub by Alba Botanica ($8.99 at Walgreens): This all-natural body scrub with sea salt screams a romantic getaway with some tropical action. Packed with a medley of jojoba, macadamia, avocado, and sweet almond oils, this oh-so-good purifying scrub will take you and your loved one to Oahu.

16. Voila French Nail Polish Collection by *Hype ($27): For a green gal, it is virtually impossible to find all-natural nail polish, as such a thing does not exist. The next best option comes from *Hype, a brand lovingly made in the USA with up to 85% natural ingredients. The French Collection features a palette that any macaron-lover would kill to own. Inspired by the classic French manicure, this collection offers three beautiful sheer colors plus an ultra white enamel. Such a chic gift will surely not leave her indifferent (especially if you pair up with an offer to go to Paris on a long and decadent honeymoon, wink wink.)

17. Pure Marula Facial Oil by Marula ($58): Remember all the hype with the now famous Argan oil? Well, Marula Oil is another skin superfood that has been the secret of supermodels for a long time. Clinically proven to have way more antioxidants than argan oil for supple skin, this golden elixir works wonderfully well on its own or mixed with other facial products to boost their efficiency. Yeah, this is the next BIG THING in green beauty. My skin loves this product, and as a little goes a long way it's a gift that will keep her thinking about you until the next Valentine's Day.

With a handful of vitamins blended with vitamin-rich apricot kernel oil, grapeseed oil, seabuckthorn oil and luxurious jojoba oil, this ultra-nourishing formula provides long-lasting hydration and a great excuse to share a full body massage. Hint: If you're not too good at that, you can always add 1-2 capfuls to a hot running bath for an intoxicating experience.

19. Damascus Rose Face Care Starter Set by Badger ($33.98): If you really want to gift high-quality skincare that is also certified organic, you should look at some of the terrific gift sets that the folks at Badger have put together. To celebrate the month of love, there's nothing better than their Damascus Rose Line, designed to pamper dry/delicate skin with roses, one of the most precious natural oils recognized for its anti-ageing and regenerating properties. The Face Care Starter Set includes a Damascus Rose Face Cleansing Oil (yes, you can learn more about my personal experience here) and a Damascus Rose Face Oil that works as a serum/moisturizer. Non-comedogenic, gentle, and restoring, this kit is a wonderful introduction to the world of chemical-free skincare that is also handmade in the USA.   {This is a 100% natural product certified 100% organic by the USDA}

20. Hungarian Thermal Mud Bath Bomb by Ildi Pekar ($18): Ildi Pekar is a well-known facialist to celebrities such as Miranda Kerr, so she knows her stuff. She has recently launched the first Thermal Mud Bath Bomb, designed to keep skin soft and luxurious all winter long. The formula is chock-full with all-natural goodness: The hungarian thermal mud minimizes breakouts, maximizes hydration, and is purifying and brightening; the poppy seed is an anti-inflammatory that pampers skin during the harsh winter months; the olive oil has powerful anti-aging benefits, and the ginger milk essential oil has a calming scent. I swear that any green gal will go absolutely GaGa for this gift. I do! {This is a 100% natural product.}

21. Botanical Bubbles Soap Set by LATHER ($23): If you're looking to impress your green Valentine, this is the perfect gift.

This beautiful gift set made in the USA includes a rosemary and peppermint soap, a rose tangerine lavender soap, a lemongrass soap, and a luxurious natural wood soap dish. I have been using LATHER's soaps for over two years and they are by far my favorite in the market. If you are looking for a high-quality gift, you've found it! Now dress to impress... and let LATHER work its magic on your behalf. {This is a 100% natural product.}
