Perhaps the woman in your life is striving towards an eco-friendly, chemical-free, plant-based lifestyle. If so, she will probably love Envision All Natural Eau de Parfum, $102.95, by Pour Le Monde. This natural perfume is free of petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, dyes, synthetic musk, sunscreens, phthalates, synthetic alcohol, chemical extenders and animal by products and is cruelty free. The top notes are citrusy, the middle notes are rose and geranium while the base notes are sandalwood and patchouli. It smells divine and goes through several iterations after being applied. The reason Envision All Natural Eau de Parfum is one of my recommendations for Valentine’s Day gifts under $150 for her is, unlike many other natural perfumes, Envision has staying power. Once applied to the skin, you don’t have to reapply it every hour or two – the scent lasts for many hours.

Defender Series Smartphone Case for Samsung Galaxy S7 from OtterBox
Even though I’m pretty careful with my smartphone, I have to admit that I have dropped it once or twice and held my breath while I checked to see if it was still working. That’s why you need a really good case for your smartphone and the woman in your life will appreciate the OtterBox Galaxy S7 Defender Series Realtree Case Xtra Camo, $59.95, for its solid construction and aesthetic appeal. The case The case also features a built-in screen cover to prevent scratches and there are port covers to prevent dust from entering openings. I love the nature theme of the back of the case and the coordinating orange case.
Herem Necklace in Cerise Cherry from Anne Marie Chagnon Jewelry
I found out about Quebec designer Anne Marie Chagnon Jewelry at the One of a Kind Show in Toronto and love her original pieces. The Herem Necklace in Cerise Cherry, $108, makes a great Valentine’s Day gift under $150 for her because it’s unique and stylish. I love the contrast in materials of the cherry wood beads and hammered pewter crescents – it gives the necklace a lot of versatility. I have worn this necklace casually with a sweater, but it could definitely be worn with a blouse or dress. You can purchase the Herem Necklace in Cerise Cherry online at Anne Marie Chagnon Jewelry.
Alitura Gold Serum
Admittedly, this might be a risky gift to give the woman in your life on Valentine’s Day since Alitura Gold Serum is anti-aging. I love this serum for its texture and its scent, but also for the wonderful things it does such as improving my skin’s elasticity due to the serum’s marine collagen. Also, one of the key ingredients – copper tripeptide – is known for tightening loose skin. Bonus! The serum is based in essential oils including Organic Hemp Seed Oil, Organic Rosehip Oil, Organic Hawaiian Frankincense Essential Oil, Organic Carrot Seed Essential Oil and Organic Australian Sandalwood Essential Oil. I readily endorse Alitura as a natural skincare brand because it is anti-lab, anti-chemical and anti-GMO. Alitura Gold Serum is $79 (50 ml) and can be purchased online. All kidding aside, I would love to receive Alitura Gold Serum as a Valentine’s Day gift!
