I have always liked Valentine's Day. It's an opportunity to show the people you love that you love them. Parents, kids, boyfriends, girlfriends, yourself. There is nothing wrong with that as long as you don't get caught up in the pressure to make it an over the top romantic extravaganza. I whipped up a gift guide with cute thoughtful items that anyone would be happy to receive.
1) A sweet oatmeal hued Revival Ceramics 6" planter. Add a cactus to it and its a stylish low maintenance gift for the plant lover. 2) Going to Paris is tres romantic, but if you can't make it there this year, the Mejuri Croissant Dome bracelet is almost as a good for a dose of Parisian style. 3) Or beautifully subtle diamond bar earrings on my wish list 4) Thatch Jewelry Iris necklace has had my attention for a while, imagine it layered with the 5) Bella Lock necklace. Lovely. 6) A no brainer gift bundle where you actually want everything in the package from Verishop. 7) Consider a dried flower bouquet. It will last past V Day and is very au currant. 8) Muse vase from Midland shop for the flowers you get. Mic drop. 9) The Always Pan from Our Place is truly a gift from the heart for someone who loves to cook. 10) Printed photo books are crowd-pleasers. Children love them and will look through them with a smile again and again. Family members adore them. Partners appreciate them. You won't fail with this gift. It takes some time to put together but in a digital world, these photo books take on extra sentimental meaning. I found Artifact Uprising has some of most refined printing around. 11) Heathered cashmere sheets from Brooklinen are a more personal and intimate gift but a classy move in the affordable luxury -> good sleep category. I have a set and they are heaven.
