Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that people seem to either love or hate, celebrate or avoid altogether. I’ve never been a huge proponent of Valentine’s Day, but it’s always fun to get gifts (because anyone who says they don’t love gifts is lying) and a good excuse to spend time with loved ones. And that doesn’t even have to mean spending time with a love interest. It could mean spending time with your friends, your child, your coworkers...just acknowledging the love in our lives because we should always take a minute to recognize how much we appreciate the people around us.
Valentine’s Day is an extremely important holiday for us at The KiT Undergarments. That’s mainly because people associate Valentine’s Day with love, and sometimes love with skin and sex and all things that touch your body, which then leads us to bras, underwear, and all the goodies that serve as a second skin. Everyone has their own interpretation of what’s “sexy,” and what they want that second skin to be. At The KiT Undergarments we care not just about fit but also about the fabric—the touch and the feel—so that you truly feel like you’re wearing nothing at all, but your bits still get the support you’re looking for! This Valentine’s Day, I’m going to be giving all the loved ones in my life the products that speak most to them. I have friends who wear soft bras, friends who prefer bodysuits to bras, friends that love cotton briefs, and those that prefer a seamless thong. We created The KiT Undergarments so that there was something for everyone. I can attest. I have at least 10 of each product we sell, and I live in them, through and through. Here are a few of those favorites, not to mention the picks I’ll be gifting and a few other ideas for this day of love.
The KiT Undergarments Starter Demi KiT ($98)
I think it’s fun to buy someone a little starter kit—with all our essentials—and you can choose which color to gift based on who’s getting it and what you think they’d like. The 3 piece set includes the Demi Bra, which is actually the perfect bra. I stand behind that statement! I have it in every color and wear it day in and day out. My favorites right now are onyx and cinnamon!
The KiT Undergarments Triangle Soft Bra ($38) and Bikini Brief ($22) in Sweet Pea
This is the bra for the girl who doesn’t need a ton of support. It’s the bra I choose when I want to feel like I’m not wearing one at all. I’m more of a cotton underwear gal, especially when I sleep, so these briefs are my go-to pick. I honestly cannot get enough of them.
The KiT Undergarments Long Sleeve Thong Bodysuit ($88)
I wear this at least 3 times a week—with jeans, with trousers, with skirts, under dresses...you name it. It’s the perfect, can’t-go-wrong gift for anyone on your list..
Larq Bottle ($95)
I absolutely love these self-cleaning water bottles that also have a built-in purification system. The Himalayan Pink bottle is the perfect color for Valentine’s Day!
Charvet Suede Slippers ($450)
Slippers or slides, I wear these around the house day or night. They’re simple, well made, beautiful, and come in different colors for women and men.
Pursome Digital Detox Bath ($34)
Because everyone needs a break from their devices...
Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick ($50)
This is the perfect blush for that dewy, rosy cheek look. My color of choice is Minette, but you truly can’t go wrong with their palette. And their sleek packaging makes for a beautiful present.
KNC Beauty All Natural Collagen-Infused Lip Mask, 10 pack ($40)
The look of DSL without any needles, these are my go-to for when I feel like I need an extra plump up.
SK-II Facial Treatment Mask, 10 pack ($139)
Women (and men!) love a good mask. Sure, you don’t normally see men using face masks...but they should! Especially this Facial Treatment Mask. It’s super hydrating and perfect for this time of year.
Dyptique Car Diffuser Set with Baies Cartridge ($105)
Living in LA, I spend a lot of time in the car. So, it’s nice to keep it looking good and smelling fresh with this incredible car diffuser! Even if you don’t live in LA, I suggest absolutely anything from this brand. My favorite scent is Baies. Both their room spray and their candles are oh.so.good.
Cuyana Leather Travel Case Set ($120)
These are my go-to travel cases, for men or women. They’re eco-friendly and you can even monogram them! I use them for my makeup when I travel, my jewelry, my accessories...you name it.
Comme Si The Essential Cotton Sock Set ($75)
Comfortable. Chic. Beautiful colors. Nice, easy packaging. I love these socks. And who doesn’t love a good pair of socks? Let alone 3!
Prada Silk Satin Headband ($235)
This headband feels like the kind of thing you wouldn’t buy for yourself, but if you got it as a gift you’d be so excited. Or, at least I would be. And actually, I have bought it for myself. So maybe I’m just projecting that I’d like another and that this soft pink color is so pretty and screams Valentine’s Day.
Sophie Bille Brahe Velvet Jewelry Box ($80)
The colors of these jewelry boxes are beautiful. They make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift...especially if there’s a little something special inside.
Bottega Veneta Gold-tone Hoop Earring ($620)
You can’t go wrong with a great pair of gold hoops. They’re earrings you can wear day or night, over and over and over again.
Alison Lou Mini Lip Huggy ($300)
This little guy screams Valentine’s Day. All of her huggies make great gifts for layering, and personalizing.
Irene Neuwirth One-of-a-Kind Single Earring (Price varies, around $3000)
If you want to know the way to my heart, well, this is it. I already have one and I’d love to add more to my collection. Wink wink!
