This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UCLA chapter.

With the Valentine’s Day season coming up, I’m sure we’re all on the lookout for the cutest gifts for our gals! So please enjoy this gift guide for a couple of amazing suggestions on how to spread the love this season to the ones closest you:

Ten Wilde “Amalfi Hoops”

A perfect accessory to spice up any outfit at all! We all love an elegant statement earring, so pair with jeans and a sweater for a cozy day walking the streets, or dress up and go for a night on the town with these gems!

Linjer “Mona Ring”

A staple for every jewelry collection that makes you feel like you can dress up any outfit. A simple and elegant touch that doesn’t rust and fits your finger perfectly. I highly recommend as it is also on sale (yay!) and available in multiple colors and sizes.

Poppy + Sage Luna Bag

A bag that adds a nice touch to any outfit. A very feminine and elegant look that can hold all of your essentials, with a great clasp on the front to keep all of your items safe and secure wherever you go.

Paradigm Polarized Sunglasses

Sunglasses that give you a little edge and make you feel empowered to take on your day! These glasses are polarized and are good for protecting you from the sun while looking fashion-forward at the same time.

PJ Salvage Lounge Top

Try these cozies for lounging around the house – a must-have for those cozy days at home! This brand of loungewear is truly top-notch (I own a lot of their other products) and they will not pill or fray after use.

Zodiac “Paradise Moccasin”

Very comfy for an at home, running errands, or whatever the day calls for! These will keep your feet warm and protected, and can also be paired with any outfit for your daily outings.

Knitted Cuffed Cashmere Hat – Bellemere New York

A cozy knit hat to keep you warm during those chilly days in the New Year, while also looking fashionable! This high-quality hat is a good buy for anyone that loves to take those chilly, early morning walks, or is out and about in the winter weather and needs that extra layer of warmth.

RAYCON Global “The Everyday E25 Earbuds”

A must-have for working out, listening to music or podcasts, or catching up on an audiobook. This item has great sound quality and is great for people that spend a lot of time working on the computer which, nowadays, is a lot of us!

DW Home Candles

Rose scented candles to get you in the mood of the season – and they burn for 56 hours! I truly recommend this item (as I have one burning in my home right now) as it smells amazing and makes your house feel like a flower shop.
