The iconic doll turned “Extra” fashion maven is here to curate your Valentine’s Day 2021 shopping list, whether you’re looking for your significant other or a BFF in need of a “Galentine’s Day” treat for a good pal or even a parent.
Barbie always knows what’s trending, and wouldn’t be caught just sending flowers or chocolates on Valentine’s Day.
Scrolling through her Instagram account @barbiestyle gives you a glimpse into her favorite products — but take a look below for this shopping expert’s giftable must-haves, chosen specifically for The Post.
“Treat your friends, and their hair, to this game-changing pillowcase. Self-care while you sleep? J’adore!” Barbie told The Post.
Wake up with Barbie’s sleek and frizz-free hair every morning, with this 100% organic bamboo pillow case from Vegamour. The cream-colored pillowcase fits most standard-sized pillows and has a zipper closure. It also comes with a travel bag to make sleepovers with the besties a breeze.
Treat her to the bubble bath of her dreams with this fiery pink pepper bath gel from SkinStore.
“Your friends will love the smell and feel of this anti-oxidant rich shower gel. Plus, it’s my favorite color,” Barbie said.
Made in England, the gel can be used in the bath or the shower for a luxurious lather and beautiful scent. The concoction features top notes of pink pepper and tangerine, as well as other notes of nutmeg, ginger oil and patchouli.
“Pajamas are getting so much love these days, what a treat to own a pair as comfy and chic as these!” Barbie raved.
Pajamas are now the acceptable attire for all-day wear, especially when working from home. Give the gift of ultimate comfort with this matching set, featuring dainty pink hearts and pink trim for the occasion. The set comes in a range of sizes from XS to XL and qualifies for free shipping with code FREESHIP.
For the girl who has it all and is a bit picky when it comes to gifts, here’s a foolproof idea for her.
“With so much time to spend at home, the redecorating bug is real!,” Barbie said. “Support your friend’s home makeover with a gift card for new, luxe linens.”
A gift card from bedding and home goods retailer Parachute is a great bet, as she can pick out whatever she likes and has you to thank. The cards range in amount from $50 to $500, making the entire store her oyster.
If you’ve been missing your yoga time with the girls, send her a reminder of great memories and get her ready for your next class once we can safely meet.
“A lightweight yoga mat is perfect for a friend looking to bring some namaste into their daily routine,” explained Barbie.
This mat is perfect for taking to and from your yoga class, or to and from the living room as the case may be. The mat comes in both Barbie-approved pink and a black color, complete with a carrying strap in the same color.
“In my book, it’s always time for pink! This will be a Valentine’s favorite for years to come,” Barbie said.
A reminder of your love every time they check the time, this pink and gold watch is sure to please this Valentine’s Day. From Coach, the Arden style is minimalist with a black and white face and gold rim, but adds a pop of V-Day color with a pink leather band.
“Bisou, bisou! This vegan and gluten-free treat is as sweet as it is chic,” said Barbie, in the language of love.
For those who don’t speak French, Barbie was talking about kisses, the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day. If you can’t give them a smooch in person this year, send some sugar instead, with these tasty gummy lips from Sugarfina.
“In a digital world, I love to send and receive handwritten notes. A beautifully crafted card gives it the perfect personal touch,” said Barbie.
She’s right that a handwritten card is the way to go when showing how much you care. From Rifle Paper Co., take it one step farther and pick out a stunning and unique design before making it even more heartfelt with your note.
“Milk Bar sets the bar for the sweetest, most decadent treats! These assorted cookies are impossible to pass up,” joked Barbie, slipping a pun into this pick.
The cookies from Milk Bar are no joke however, packing a flavorful punch in each pre-packaged treat. The assorted tin comes with six cookies, one of each flavor. They include a compost cookie, cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow cookie, corn cookie, blueberry and cream cookie, chocolate confetti cookie and a confetti cookie.
Make sure your love is eating right, and in style too, with a cute lunch box from Our Place.
“Chic, eco-friendly and leak proof, this lunch box is a foodie’s dream,” raved Barbie, probably during her lunch break.
The pink and white lunch set comes with a two-tier design to fit in all your favorite foods, as well as a fully stocked silverware compartment with a fork, spoon, knife and even chopsticks should you turn the lunch box into a bento.
“What can I say, I’m partial to this style,” said Barbie with a chuckle.
Stay comfy and stylish this Valentine’s Day by sending this sweatshirt to your Barbie-like bestie. The white sweatshirt from ASOS features the vintage logo and slogan, perfect for a friend in California or one that wishes she was. It features cuffed sleeves and a half-zip neck, and comes in sizes ranging from a zero to a 14.
Let your love for them grow and grow with this planter that serves a purpose.
“Set it and forget it! This gift is perfect for a first-time gardener or an at-home-chef,” explained Barbie, as this planter is great for essential kitchen herbs like basil and thyme.
From Click & Grow, this set comes with the indoor planter and light, a quick start guide and three soil pods with basil seeds. Wait a few weeks and then plan a pasta night when you see the plant sprout and grow before your eyes.
