Valentine’s Day. A glorified “hallmark” holiday as some claim. Although, I love Valentine’s Day. Always have. Even if I was single, I never considered it a holiday destined to celebrate with your significant other but a day to say “I love you” to all those you really love. I remember growing up, my Mother would also treat us to Valentine’s from her and my Dad, and now that I have Lo, I already have her little Valentine’s Day spread ready for cupid’s delivery.
I know what you are going to say, “Well, why tell someone you love you love them because it is Valentine’s Day. Shouldn’t we say it every day?” Yes,that is true, but let’s be real. Life is tough, hard, stressful and fast paced. Some days it is pure survival in my house. We show each other small acts of kindness and love but sometimes we do that out of habit. It becomes second nature, it isn’t really thought out or anticipated. But, with Valentine’s Day, it is a moment to make us pause and do something maybe out of the norm. It may be forced since it feels like a forced day, but I like that it is a kick in the butt to do something I would not think to do. Like a special dinner, bottle of wine, strawberries or just a sweet card. Regardless of what you do, say or buy, I encourage you to celebrate with your loves on this fun, festive day.
So, if your love is the “receiving gifts” love language type, I am sharing my Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her.
Adidas Suede Pink Sneakers – Okay, so sneakers – are so in right now. I know, gasp! There was a time (not long ago) that I would not wear sneakers. Except maybe to exercise, no wait, I never really do that either, so they just sat in my closet. But now, they are the perfect style accessory for rocking the “I may be a Mom but I am still hip, stylish and cool” look.
Urban Decay Lipgloss – I mean the name is everything?! Just kidding.
Kate Spade Mini Stud Earrings – I mean what else is there to say? Kate Spade for the simplicity perfection win again!
Philosophy Amazing Grace Perfume – This is my “go to” perfume of choice. It is soft and subtle. Plus, I love that it is light pink and matched my creative theme!
Le Creuset Cast-Iron Heart-Shaped Dutch Oven – Because nothing says “I love you” more than a dutch oven. No really. For the cook in your life, how fun is this?
Swell Stainless Steel Water Bottle – It is reusable, safe and hip. And, did you know that S’well has teamed up with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help provide clean drinking water to children around the world?
Hunter Boots – My favorite, favorite! I think they make every one of my gift guide lists and has a permanent home on the blog’s side column as a favorite thing. I just love Hunter Boots. If money was no option and space not a thing, I would buy one in every color.
All of these Valentine’s Day gifts and some additional favorites are featured below.
