Our Official Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

We’ve always had a thing for hearts… remember back to your childhood when heart-embellished shoelaces and hair accessories were a hot item? In honor of the big V day coming up next week, we’ve rounded up a ton of LOVE-ly, both affordable and splurge-worthy, fashionable items perfect for giving or self-gifting. Some even give back — an even better reason to treat yourself.

For Him

1 | The hearts are subtle enough that he can wear this Paul Smith tie to the office (or out for V Day dinner… just sayin’).
2 | Give him this yummy Diptyque candle with a bottle of bubbly and massage oil… and you fill in the blanks.
3 | He will wear his heart on his sleeve with these classic cuff links by David Donahue in power red.
4 | You’ve heard of wine clubs — now you can send your guy monthly tasting boxes full of premium spirits.
5 | This Bluetooth speaker by Bose is handy when you need tunes on the go or want to set a romantic mood…

For Her

1 |Porn for Women — a fun gift that says “I’m thinking about you” for your BFF or mom.
2 | Add a few hand-picked posies to a glass vase or chocolates to a hand-blown glass bowl for a thoughtful gift with a personal touch.
3 | The heart is a signature look for all things Brighton, from jewelry to frames and handbags adorned with the symbol of love. We have this pretty, perfect-for-everyday bracelet on our list.
4 | Reminiscent of the popular Lanvin design only with diamonds, this “love” necklace by Sydney Evan is so sweet. Or here’s a more affordable version, yes please!
5 | This Marc Jacobs heart case is the perfect place to stash a license and credit card for a night out.

For You!

1 | Nothing says “I love you” to yourself like this fabulous red Chloe bag. Or be pretty in pink with a Kate Spade New York mini-bag.
2 | Or if shoes are your preferred treat, these Louboutins (Inspired by Elle Woods, don’t you think?) and red Rockstuds are perfection.

For Little Loves

valentines-gifts-for-kids_01 | We are wondering if they have these darling Burberry boots in our size… do your kids love rain boots as much as ours do?
2 | Okay, we know that we’re not supposed to play with our food, but how cute is this mug?
3 | Lego fans will love this cute cupid dog in their bag of treats.
4 | What kiddo doesn’t love pancakes for breakfast? Treat them on Valentine’s Day to these delicious banana caramel flapjacks from World Market. Yum. And pink cocoa for the girls!

Gifts that Give Back

And on the day all about love, giving your loved one a gift that helps others is not only thoughtful, but impactful, and is sure to bring good karma.

2 | The gift of books and love of reading is so important to our children, and when you give a book from the Tiny Bee Gift Co., they donate a book to a school library in need for every book that you purchase. Read more about the program and Amy Bean, another one of our amazing Mom Muses.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours!
