Valentine's Day Gift Guide: Tokyo Milk Bon Bon Bubble Bath

I love Valentine's Day. It's a special day for Zach and I (we had our first date on Valentine's Day in 1998. 1998!! I know. I can hardly believe it was that long ago either). But beyond that, my mom always made it such a fun day when I was growing up. My sister and I would come home from school to heart-shaped cupcakes, and new heart-themed pajamas wrapped in pretty pink and red paper, and balloons bobbing over the dinner table. It was always a fancy day.

So February 14th is on my mind. Over the next few weeks I am going to post ideas for Valentine's indulgences. Indulgences that could work as gifts for another or for yourself. Because self-love is important on Valentine's Day too, don't you think?

To kick things off, I am going to start with Tokyo Milk Bon Bon Bubble Bath. My sister got some for me for Christmas, and I love it. Isn't the packaging gorgeous?
Each label is printed with a picture that you can see when you look through the back of the glass bottle. So lovely to look at when you're soaking and up to your chin in bubbles. And also- they smell amazing.

P.S. Tokyo Milk also has gift collections called things like Dead Sexy Kiss Collection and Kiss and Tell Collection. Perfect for your Valentine. Or to buy for yourself to celebrate the day.


  1. Wow. I don't think I've ever coveted something so much in such a short period of time. It's taking a fair amount of self control not to buy bottles and bottles to display in my bathroom.

    Also, what a great family celebration! My mom did the same with Easter, when my sister and I would each get a special present, and that relatively small extra touch made the day really special (even on top of it being a kid-friendly holiday, what with Easter baskets and Easter egg hunts).

  2. I, too, want one of these so badly. "French Kiss No. 15: Mandarin, Tuberose, Gardenia & Vetiver." Um, yes, please, now.

  3. I like your ideas about valentines day.we are planning to host a big party on my Mom birthday.I want to give a big surprise on her birthday to make is so special!can you share some more gift ideas?
