Love is in the air as Valentine's Day is swiftly approaching. There is plenty of kitsch out there to buy...things that are pink, decorated with hearts and so forth. To me, that feels manufactured. My style is to give gifts that are all about love and connection. Those are sometimes harder to find, so I thought you might like it if I share some of the most intriguing gift ideas I found this year. Enjoy! (Be sure to go all the way to the bottom where you will find gift ideas for yourself! 💗)
They say that distance makes the heart grow fonder... the lovebox messenger closes the gap on that distance. This fun little desktop device is like a modern day cupid. Whenever a new message comes in, the heart on the box starts spinning. Your valentine can return the thought with a shower of hearts! I absolutely love the light beech wood material and multiple colored hearts you can choose from to adorn the box. Let someone know you're thinking of them....
What if you're constantly on the go and want to let your loved one know when you're thinking of them? This could be your significant other or a precious child or grand mum. These trendy touch bracelets go with you! Unlike the Lovebox Messenger above that sits on a desk or table, you can wear these messenger bracelets. The bracelets come in many different colors that range from opal white to emerald green.
Do One Thing Together Every Day
Your love is worth paying attention to! This journal is a fun way to prompt you and your loved on to make a habit of making everyday a bit more memorable together..
Sipping a cup of tea feels like a warm hug for your soul. Why not take it to the next level hug? These heart-shaped tea bags include classic flavors like Earl Gray, English Breakfast, and White Berry. Accompany your tea with some love note shortbread biscuits.
Have a special day or moment that you want to honor and remember? Maybe the day you got married, the moment you gave birth, or perhaps when you bought your first house. This is such an awesome idea! At the moment of an event, the stars were in a very specific configuration. Now, you can hold on to that moment with this map of the stars that watched over you that day. This is such a special and unique gift. Everyone who displays it in their home will inevitably be asked what it is and have the pleasure of reliving the moment over and over. It's a precious gift to give someone you care about because it shows you acknowledge the special moments
What could you want more for your loved one than to give them the gift of Health and Wellbeing? An Apple Watch is just that since it can monitor heart rate and record exercises, making tracking health easier than ever. Plus I think this is another great "techie" gift giving your loved one hours of fun figuring out all the widgets.
Help the man in your life step up his morning routine. The Bevel shave kit makes him look like he is always fresh from the barber shop! The ingredients in the kit preps, moisturizes, soothes and refines skin. Bevel makes the program straight forward so it is a super simple system to stick with when the novelty wears off.
For the Home
Your home needs some love too right?. This 'forever' dried roses box makes for a stylish centerpiece that can be set at a table nicely with the absolutely adorable heart plates. Maybe set them out with breakfast and a love note on them on Valentine's day. I don't know if you can see from the small picture below but this darling pink pillow case, has pearls sewn into it! It takes the design quotient way up and can be used all year long.
What About You?
I love to give and....it's also so wonderful to receive too. When you give a lot through out the year it's easy to forget to think about yourself I've included this little bonus section in case someone special asks you what you want or you just want to show some love to yourself..
I'm currently in love with pale rose and gold (you'll see this echoed in the theme here!)
The White Lotus tealight holder, makeup brushes, and rose scented oval must be made for each other, because they fit together so perfectly! I have to keep things organized in my home, and that's why I appreciate the gold jewelry stand so much.
Finally, CHANTECAILLE Brilliant Gloss, because you always deserve to shine 💛
I hope every day finds you feeling loved. Happy Valentine's Day! 💜
