Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and it feels like we just wrapped the December holiday season. When it comes to Valentines gifts – some go big, some go small, some don’t go at all. If you’re in favor of gifts, it can be a challenge to come up with that something special after just exhausting all of your gift ideas for loved ones back in December.
So I wanted to share some ideas to help spread the love around this year – I think we could all use a little more love right now, don’t you? My favorite way to show love is through cooking and baking Valentines treats. But I know purchased gifts are the preferred option for many, and certainly always appreciated by the receiver! So here’s some ideas for him, for her and for kids.
GIFTS FOR HIM:
Whiskey Decanter | Copper Bottle Opener | Sphere Ice Molds | Minimalist Front Pocket Wallet | Hydro Flask Water Bottle | Bacon Letterpress Card | Bean Box Coffee Subscription | YETI Tumbler with Lid | Meat Loaf Letterpress Card | Timex Watch | Bamboo USB Charging Station | Brass Collar Stays | French Fries Letterpress Card | Chemex Glass Coffee Maker | Secret Wash Shirt | Weekender Bag
MY FAVORITE PICKS:
Sphere Ice Molds: these molds take drinks to a whole new level of cool. Water is transformed into ball shaped ice cubes that melt slowly into, say a glass of whiskey, or whatever is his drink of choice. BPA free and dishwasher safe.
Bean Box Coffee Subscription: for the guy who loves coffee, this is the ultimate way to try new blends. Sample sized bags of freshly roasted coffees from Seattle’s top-rated, small-batch roasters, mailed to your guy once a month. I gave a subscription to my husband for his birthday and we both loved it so much that we gifted it to my dad for Christmas. Pair this with the Chemex Glass Coffee Maker and you’ll have a pour-over coffee that rivals any coffee shop around.
Secret Wash Shirt: you can’t go wrong with these shirts. So soft and comfy that your guy will actually want to wear it. In an array of patterns and plaids, they pair nicely with jeans now and will work with shorts once the weather warms up. Just roll up the sleeves and go.
GIFTS FOR KIDS:
Cherry Cupcake Scratch and Sniff Cards | Bashful Beige Bunny | Heart Sunglasses | Valentine Tattoo Cards | Pete the Cat Valentine’s Book | Stripes The Long Earred Bunny | Ridley’s Magic Set | Inspiration Art Case | PlayShapes Building Blocks | Mermaid Doll | Glitter Emoji Purse | In My Heart Book | Strawberry Scratch and Sniff Cards
MY FAVORITE PICKS:
Pete the Cat- Valentine’s Day Is Cool: Pete The Cat books are always a big win in our house because they’re great for beginning readers. This one is cute for Valentine’s Day – but our current favorite is Pete The Cat and the Missing Cupcakes with its rhyming rhythm and adorable cupcake theme!
Inspiration Art Case: a suitcase full of washable crayons, markers and colored pencils to keep them creating for hours. My daughter has had this art case for over a year and it’s still a go-to favorite. The suitcase container makes cleanup and storage a snap – plus it’s easy to tote along.
In My Heart Book: this book made me misty-eyed the first time I read it. With beautiful illustrations, it covers emotions in a way that both you and your little one will love. It’s such a good one!
GIFTS FOR HER:
Sweet Talk Pen Set | Valentine Cookie Cutter Set | Hugs and Kisses Ring | Love Potion Tumbler | J Crew Scarf | Heart Bracelet | Nested Heart Cookie Cutters | Pink Hearts Confetti Push Popper | Beats | Eyelashes Mug | Copper Bunny Ring Holder | Heart Canvas Tote Bag | After This Pizza Bottle | Jill Sunglasses | Heart Shaped Marshmallows | Complement Greeting Card Set | Heart Shaped Waffle Iron | Mimimalist Necklace | Kate Spade Eat Cake For Breakfast Tumbler | Pink Packable Jacket | Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb | Heart Stud Earrings
This list has you covered for everyone from your sister to your best friend and back. Who can resist all the pink cuteness, especially that adorable Eyelashes Mug! And no one will shy away from a complement card declaring you are better than unicorns and sparkles, combined!
