Valentine's Day Gifts At CVS!

A little over a week ago, I received a wonderful surprise in the mail! I had no idea what to expect as my husband (he's like a little kid when it comes to opening gifts!) ripped open the box. After removing the paper, he began to oooh and ahhh. Inside was a selection of three yummy chocolate valentines, a stuffed bear, a cool rose (with a message) in a vase, and an Elizabeth Arden "swag" bag full of perfumes! I knew CVS had a large selection of products, but I had no idea they offered such a variety of fragrances! I tried many new things from my gift box and I want to share a few of my favorites!
Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles. In a big, red, Valentine Heart! YUM. This, of course was my favorite. I hate to admit it, but I kept these to myself. With the exception of two. I wanted Logan and Sam to experience the creaminess and richness of my favorite truffle. Once...that's enough, right? I also received a big red heart containing another favorite, Godiva Gems! Inside were dark and milk chocolate gems. Listen up guys, you can't go wrong with either of these! I also received another larger, Russell Stover heart containing Turtles! If you like caramel and pecans surrounded by luscious chocolate, this one's for you! The heart shaped box was made with a really nice fabric and I think it would be a great gift idea for your Valentine!

Perfumes always make a nice gift but sometimes it's hard to pick out a fragrance for someone else. Once my husband did this for me and I didn't have the heart to tell him it just wasn't for me. I wore it rarely and I found myself telling a little fib when he asked why I didn't wear it all the time. I remember muttering something about saving it for really special occasions. Maybe that wasn't a total fib because I do wear it when we hang out together at home. I call that special, especially since he works all the time! With the huge assortment of perfumes in my gift bag, I found a few "safe" fragrances that may appeal to anyone with similar taste. I like floral (mostly) and my favorite everyday perfume is Burberry London. I really loved Go Couture Yourself and Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum Spray! Surprisingly, I liked the Brittney Spears and Mariah Carey fragrances that I received. I usually steer clear of those for more classic scents, but I am enjoying them immensely! I wore White Diamonds for years and my favorite aunt had a thing for Red Door. It was nice to see them in my bag and take a trip down memory lane!
There's no need to seach through the larger stores for that perfect gift. Avoid the lines and avoid the crowds and head over to your local CVS. They have almost everything you could want and they have awesome prices! And guess what? They have wrapping paper, gift bags, and greeting cards so you don't need to make any other stops! That's awesome!

Disclosure: I was sent a wonderful surprise box filled with an assortment of goodies! I was under no obligation to feature these products-all products mentioned were featured because I really enjoyed them and I hope you will too!

It sounds like you were sent a box filled with all kinds of goodies! What a wonderful surprise!
I like CVS, we have used CVS pharmacy a lot, I don't get there often because it's pretty far away, but when I do I really enjoy looking around the store, they have just about everything & they have some great deals too.
Nice review!

We actually find that CVS has great deals on fragrances. We daughter in laws wear more of the new scents like Brittany Spears etc.. where as the traditional standbys are still great gifts for other famile members~~

Nice review..
