Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Have you found the right gift for the loved one(s) on your list? Posh Beauty Blog has selected some favorite lifestyle, beauty and yummy treats that will be perfect for your Valentine, GALentine or MANtine! If you have suggestions, leave them.
Bouquet Bar is one of my very favorite things! With just a click of a button, send your special someone or bestie an unforgettable, gorgeous box of florals and delightful gifts, beautifully displayed in a box they won’t forget. The Bouquet Bar “Love Box,” for example, holds a mini-bouquet of delicate red spray roses along with lavender dark chocolate drops, sugar coated sour gummy hearts, old-fashioned caramel corn, gummy bears and a Lavender Fields scented candle, to leave a lasting impression. Or choose one of four designer boxes, mix and match two to six of your favorite treats and add a tall, stunning floral arrangement. Bouquet Bar’s newest Black Box is the ultimate win for the man who has everything and perfect for those who don’t know what to get the beau they just started dating! Prices range from $47.99 to $149.99. Oh, and check out Kim Kardashian’s reaction to her Bouquet Bar box on social media? See it HERE.
