With Valentine's Day is just a few days away, here's a look at the Accessories Council top picks for your last minute gifts! 

The Petite Eye Cheek and Lip Palette by bella j. ($18, retail value of $75) has all the makeup essentials you need for touch ups at the office or going out after. The palette includes a blush (Pink Peony), lip gloss (BerryBash), four eye shadows (Espresso, Cafe Au Lait, Nude, and Cream) and a surprise charm. 

I love how pigmented the Jing Ai Velvet Shine Lip Jewels ($22) are! They are infused with 100% natural macadamia seed oil, shea butter and jojoba seed oil. You don't even need to ever sharpen the lip crayon - just twist it to advance the tip!

I've been addicted to Chuao Chocolate ever since I tasted the Baconluxious flavor. The new Strawberry Waffle Wild and Cinnamon Cereal Smooch flavors are as equally addictive!

The Crystal Kodada Limitless Tote ($498) was designed for the woman in need of functionality & versatility for her busy on-the-go lifestyle. I love the zipper and slip pockets, which are perfect for storing your phone or metro card. This tote allows you to be organized and efficient, yet stylish at the same time. 

If a backpack is your style, then you'll love this luxurious Mr. Parker Backpack ($395), made with Italian bubble lambskin. 

The BWESTIE oversized clutch from Steve Madden ($78 at Lord & Taylor) and the Mondrina Tallulah Fringed Bucket Bag ($485) are the Accessories Council's top fringe picks!

Betsey Johnson's Pushing Daisies Wallet ($58 at Belk and Dillards) works as a crossbody bag or as a fun addition to your tote bag. It's perfect for carrying your phone, credit cards and lipstick for a quick lunch outing or for going out after work.

Feel extra cozy and fashionable with these Boy Meets Girl sweatshirt ($55), leggings ($45) and Boy Meets Girl x Roman Luxe bracelet ($125).

Balancing emotions it restores inner peace, calm and lowers stress. Colors and sizes of the beads may vary slightly making each bracelet unique.

One of my favorites from the preview are Marcolin-Swarovski sunglasses. The Swarovski Eileen Sunglasses ($150) have a cat eye silhouette accentuated by a cascade of sparkling crystals, arranged linearly to create a bright geometric pattern.
