Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and for many that means red roses, heart displays everywhere and plenty of over-sized teddy bears and chocolate. For those who prefer to step away from those standard gifting options, we’ve created this collection of non-cliched gift ideas that are sure to please any woman, at any stage in your relationship.

1. Healing Crystal Wands

These Healing Crystal Wands come with a set of 3, 100% genuine crystal points including quartz, amethyst and rose quartz. If healing isn’t your thing, this set makes a great, modern gift to give as a decorative accent piece that can be placed individually or together around the house or office.

2. Christian Louboutin Limited Edition Nail Collection

Who doesn’t love anything by Christian Louboutin? If you can’t afford a pair of their coveted heels or are not at that point in the relationship to drop a grand on a gift, you can still give them a luxury gift featuring the brand’s signature red sole design with their nail polishes. This limited edition nail color set comes in a beautifully decorated origami box that when opened, reveals two miniature bottles of nail color shades from his collection. The polishes are ultra-pigmented, long-lasting and come in their signature hand-crafted glass bottles with silver pointed cap. If you don’t wear the polish, these would make a great décor piece on a makeup vanity or in a bathroom.
