Valentine’s Day gifts to spread the love to her, him and YOU

Tis’ the season for all things love, but before you run out for roses and chocolates, consider a gift that lets your sweetie get in on some much-needed self-care. Here at Progressions Salon, the best hair salon in Bethesda, our beauty gurus have curated a Valentine’s Day gift guide that will help you find something that will delight everyone—him, her, and maybe most importantly, you! Because we believe that self-love is something to celebrate.

Whether you are shopping for your lady, mom, sister, or bestie, we love product kits because they are a convenient way to gift several goodies they’ll love all at once—plus, you can get in on some serious savings.

We know the men in your life can be hard to shop for, especially when it comes to their hair and skin care needs. That’s why we love Duke Cannon—not only are their grooming products the best on the market, but they also donate a portion of proceeds to support veteran causes.

  • Repair + Defend Lip Balm
  • Beard Oil
  • Bloody Knuckles Hand Cream

Why he’ll love it: These products are made specifically for men’s grooming needs, so he’ll look and feel great from beard to fingers. The lip balm is made with natural ingredients and is formulated with SPF 15 to protect against UV rays. The beard oil will make his beard healthy and shiny as it fights eczema and acne. And the hand cream provides much-needed moisture without making his hands feel sticky or greasy.



Now that you have some ideas for the people on your Valentine’s Day gift list, it’s time to think about extending the love to yourself.

Nothing says self-care like a beautiful candle. Whether you want to enjoy it while you read, or relax in a candle-lit bath, they bring a sense of relaxation that is hard to beat. Our faves:

  • Flatyz Candles are unique, handmade and decorated with love. They don’t drip or produce smoke, so they are perfect for smaller spaces.
  • Thompson Ferrier LOVE candles are elegant, gardenia-scented and have delicious notes of coconut milk and orange blossom.
  • Travalo refillable fragrance atomizer is perfect for when you need some good vibes (and good scents) on-the-go. This pocket-sized fragrance atomizer refills in seconds with no spills.

  • Glysolid Cream is ideal for when you feel like your skin could use a little extra “oomph.” It forms a light shield on your skin to protect it from dehydration and soothe any irritations.
