Since February 14 will be here before you know it, we thought it’d be a great idea to put together a little Valentine’s Day gift guide for you guys. We’ve kept it short and sweet, and tried to think of some non-traditional things. Anyone can go grab a bunch of flowers and a box of candy! We wanted to suggest some gifts that your loved one can enjoy year round, and maybe some things that he or she wouldn’t have thought to invest in for themselves.
Nickel & Suede Starter Pack Gift Sets – N&S’s leather earrings make a bold statement, while being lightweight and comfortable.
Sweet Pea – $75.00
Azalea – $75.00
Pretty Drink Cups – If your lady is anything like us, she wouldn’t turn away a pretty SB cup/mug/tumbler. Obviously, it wouldn’t have to be SB, but they sure have some lovely options. You can shop online or in store,you know, if you happen to be doing your VDay shopping last minute. 😉
Pink Hot Cup (10 floz) – $18.95
Personalized Jewelry – One of Ashley’s really good friends from college owns and operates an Etsy shop (Mississippi Mayhem) wherein she makes the cutest stuff including a ton of hand stamped metal jewelry, key chains, etc that are all completely handmade and most are customizable. She also has some really other great pieces of handmade jewelry for sale. We think this Dopamine Necklace would be a great VDay gift for any lady in your life. The dopamine molecule is central to the rewards systems in our brain, and it has become a modern symbol of love and pleasure. So why not gift your valentine some literal love? 😉
Dopamine Necklace – $8.99 plus shipping
Dollar Shave Club Subscription – Your first month of a 2, 4, or 6-blade razor is just $1, with free shipping. Then, they will ship a full cassette of cartridges every month for as little as $3. Cancel anytime with a few clicks. We use Dollar Shave Club ourselves and can vouch for the quality and service!
Dollar Shave Club Products – If you just want to get him some extra goodies, DSC also offers the option to just purchase their products. Maybe he already has a subscription? Maybe you don’t want to invest in the subscription? Either way, these luxurious products are things he would probably never buy for himself, but he most probably desperately needs them and deserves some pampering!
Easy Shave Butter (6oz) – $8
Disappearing Post Shave Dew (3.4oz) – $9
Mandatory Prep Scrub (3oz) – $9
Vital Pre Shave Oil (1oz) – $9
His Favorite Drinks – The simple gesture of a bottle of good whiskey or a case of craft beer goes a long way! Rhonda recommends beer from a local brewery and Johnnie Walker Black Label.
Bottle Opener – And speaking of dranks…what beer (or rootbeer?) loving guy couldn’t use a handy dandy portable and fashionable bottle opener?? This is another product from the Etsy Shop Mississippi Mayhem. Her credit card sized personalizable bottle opener would make such a cute gift for that guy in your life.
Credit Card Bottle Opener – $8.99 plus shipping
Books – Giving any kid, of any age, a book for any occasion is never the wrong choice. We found some really cute Love Inspired/Themed books from Target.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Mouse! by Laura Joffe Numeroff– $5.69
Love from The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle – $6.94
Arts and Crafts – Encouraging your children (or someone else’s child) to invest time in arts and crafts is a genuine act of love. Why? Because there are so many benefits that a child can reap from active involvement in various types of arts and crafts activities such as developing fine motor and bilateral coordination, increased imaginations, self regulation, self esteem booster, and bonding. Not to mention, arts and crafts are just a really fun way to spend your time!
Hand Made Modern – Stitch Kit – Heart Ornaments – $7.99
Kid Made Modern Driveway Party Outdoor Kit – $19.99
Hand Made Modern – Wood Grid Top Box – $5.99
We hope that our little list has inspired you, or possibly made your VDay gift a million times easier – because you just clicked one of our handy dandy links that we gathered. 😉 Either way we are wishing for a love-filled February 14th for all of you guys and your loved ones. And truth be told, Valentine’s Day should be about just that. A day that you set aside to show some extra love to all those you hold dear in your life. No presents required. 😉
