Valentine’s Day is not a one-size-fits-all holiday!

latte-loveWhether the closest relationship you currently have is with the cute barista at Starbucks who knows exactly how you like your morning latte (double tall skinny mocha with whip) or you’re growing old (but not wrinkly because you wear spf 15 with pa++ every day) with the one you love, here are Miss Bliss’ top date + gift recommendations for every stage of the game.

1. For the couple who just started dating: Skip the candlelit dinners and avoid that uncomfortable feeling in your stomach as you watch couples get engaged. Instead, go ice skating together. It’s a great excuse to hold hands!

gift for him:-keep it practical bliss wild ‘beard’ stuff set ($32) includes a self-heating shaving cream that mimics an old-school barber shop shave and post-shave repair lotion to prevent ingrown hairs and minimize the appearance of 5 o’clock shadow, so his face will be kissable all day long.

gift for her: ‘Butter’ her up with our freshly-squeezed lemon + sage body butter.

2. For the couple who are in deep-like with each other: You haven’t said the 3 magic words yet. Save it for after Valentine’s day when the Godiva has worn off. Celebrating on a budget? Grab some gourmet groceries + cook up a fancy dinner at home, buy a bottle of wine, pop in a DVD and snuggle on the couch.

gift for him: building blocks iPod speakers available at Urban Outfiters are an adorable gift.

gift for her: Laura Geller Lip Makeover Set will leave her lips impossible to resist.

3. Call each other Snugglebums + Pookie Bear in public? Sounds like love to me!

gift for him: Our deep tissue treatment is a male favorite. You can’t go wrong with a deep-reaching rubdown intended to relieve those stubborn knots.

gift for her:Cook her breakfast in bed! Don’t know how to cook? No worries-foodnetwork.com has tons of recipe ideas and the level of difficulty is labeled on each recipe. Then, send her off to the spa. A bliss gift certificate makes the perfect gift and is guaranteed to please.

If you forgot the big day, you’re one easy click away from getting out of the dog house with an e-card!

Happy Early Valentine’s Day!
xoxo <3 Karen

About karenglidden

My name is Karen Glidden and I’m the web content coordinator for Bliss. I will be the primary author of Bliss n Tell. For all your beautification needs, please refer to blissworld.com My background is not beauty related at all. I graduated from Boston University and worked at Starbucks for many years climbing their corporate ladder. Pre-Bliss, my idea of a milky cleanser was the residue left on my face after making cappuccinos all day. I’ve been with Bliss since October 2007 and have been converted into a product worshipper. I’m the MacGyver of skincare. I love inventing new uses to beauty products. You’ll find me putting toner on my legs to help with dry skin, wearing my glamour gloves on the subway to smooth my hands, and using skincare in my hair to tame flyaways. Oh, did I mention that I’m totally frugal. Yes, this little Bliss girl is a ‘recessionista’ for sure (hey, I still have student loans to pay off!) My skin type is normal. I’m not particularly breakout prone unless it’s stress related or hormonal. I’m not too oily, but sometimes dry all over depending on the weather. I’ve got an even skin tone and not too many fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I have some sun damage from years of sun-worshipping sans SPF, my greatest skincare regret in life. My biggest skin concern are fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes and laugh lines around my mouth. Oh, and some uh….cellulite on my bum/thighs. Yes, I am human (you can stop pointing and laughing now, thanks!). My Favorite Bliss Product: I can’t choose just one. It’s a tie between Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and A Tan For All Seasons Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is my five minute beauty fix for just about everything (breakouts, dull/tired skin, dryness). A Tan For All Seasons is my best friend. It’s a stink-free tan in a can. I cannot live without a sun-kissed glow all year (without the UV damage, of course!)
