It can be difficult to choose a ‘personal’ gift, for someone - you run the risk of getting it wrong, of misunderstanding their personal tastes. Especially, when it comes to someone’s beauty/personal grooming regimens.


Perhaps, not on Valentine’s Day. Not when gifts coming from a place of purity, can inspire your special someone to try something new. Perhaps, the only thing that can go wrong in such situations, is someone not discovering their ideal beauty/grooming Holy Grail, as fast as they’d like to!


Say it with Roses



Roses have a mythological connection with the expression, or ‘flowering’ of beauty in all its charming, hypnotising forms. They are considered to be a symbol of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of sexual love, pleasure, procreation, and beauty; as well as those of her Roman counterpart, Venus.


Let alone incomplete, for many, the idea of Valentine’s Day is non-existent without these divine beings. For them, we present a collection inspired by its signature and bestselling applications of the Kannauj rose. The Rose Essentials Box, featuring the Rose Jasmine Face Cleanser, the Kannauj Rose Steam Distilled Pure Rose Water, a Rose Oil-infused Lip Balm, and handmade Rose, Cinnamon, and Orange soap, is truly the ideal gift for the Venus in your life. The box also carries a bottle of subtly decadent Rose Jasmine Bath and Body Oil, for top-toe hydration and anxiety release. This box is everyday rejuvenation and relaxation, and thoughtful pampering in a box.


Healing Hydration for on their toes angels



Our Signature Essentials for Her Gift Box is perfect for them. It harnesses the antioxidant (and aphrodisiac) qualities of Vanilla, through the handmade Vanilla and Oatmeal soap, and Vanilla Lip Balm, also laden with Vitamin E-rich oils and butters for thirsty skin. Mridul is a wholesome, herbaceous blend, carrying the exfoliating, and antibacterial qualities of Oat, Green Gram, Almond, Chickpea, Turmeric, Neem, and Cinnamon, with soothing Vetiver and a touch of Damask Rose. You can guarantee your partner incredibly soft and smooth skin, with this soap free cleanser. In this Box, you will also find the Pure Rose Water Face Mist, a potently efficient astringent that cleans out skin pores clogged with everyday pollution, and minimises their enlarged for smooth, evened-out skin texture.


A little goes a long way with pure love, and the same applies to the Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedic Cream, a charmingly fragrant concoction of Rose and Jasmine Essential Oils, and antioxidant-rich Cardamom, True Cinnamon, and Nutmeg, and anti-scarring Aloe. It is an appropriate addition to this gift box, for its ability to bring out radiant, supple, and clean skin, regardless of how hectic life may be.


Knights in Armour need a break too



Kama puts the spotlight on men’s efforts to make life beautiful this Valentine’s Day, with our Signature Essentials for Him Gift Box. The Vetiver Steam Distilled Face Mist with Pure Vetiver Water, and handmade Khus (Vetiver) soap are invigorating and anchoring with their cooling, earthy fragrance. Vetiver also makes its way into the Himalayan Deodar (Cedarwood) Face Cleanser, that pairs wonderfully with the Hydrating Ayurvedic Face Cream to fight early signs of ageing, grime, and dullness of texture.

A box filled with loving concern and care, with a refreshing finishing touch in the shape of the cooling, moisturising, Peppermint Lip Balm.


The pleasure-seeking soap savant



Everyone knows one. The compulsive collector and hoarder, who delights in the aesthetic appearance and olfactory titillation of soaps, sometimes more than in the actual usage of them! Put a smile on their face with our exquisite Gardens of India Gift Box featuring natural, handmade soaps highlighting traditionally Indian perfumes – Rose, Khus (Vetiver), and Tulsi (Holy Basil). A trio of cathartic, self-love soaps for rest, revival and resurrection of mind & body beauty.


True love is about finding touching ways to remind that special someone that they can always be as beautiful as they always were. There are more treasures to explore on the shelves of every Kama Ayurveda store and in-store staff at your nearest one will be more than happy to help you put together the perfect Valentine’s Day hamper.
