What do you get someone for Valentine's Day? I seriously miss the kindergarten and elementary school days when all you'd have to do is pick up a box of valentines from the store and attach a heart shaped sucker. It was simple but still fun, and besides the candy of course, the best part was the message inside. Luckily, Valentine's Day is more of a holiday for girls, but still. I'm trying to think about what I'd be excited to get and I'm having a hard time thinking of anything…I mean, of course I always want clothes and accessories, but what is a good gift to give for an “”artificial holiday,”” as some (grumpy guys who don't want to spend time or money on a gift for their significant other) call it?
So, here's the deal. This will be my first Valentine's Day having a boyfriend. So, while I admit that I'm looking forward to a
special evening, I don't know what to even look forward to really. A romantic dinner would make me happy. Flowers not so much. Chocolates? I buy those for myself on a weekly basis. A heart shaped necklace? Overdone and corny. I'd like something creative and original, but I can't really claim to be all that creative myself, so I certainly can't expect that from Kevin. Hmm..
After some searching online, below are some of my Valentine's Day gift ideas:
Urban Outfitters Grow Me Kit –$10 (So much better than a bouquet of roses that will die.)
Urban Outfitters LOVE Oversized Tee–$29
Ann Taylor Scarf in Salsa Picante–$48
I like this idea from Glamour Magazine to say I love you in a creative way–a custom I <3 U tee
A trip. It doesn't have to be a trip to the Bahamas or anything. Being romantic and renting a room in a nice hotel for one night could be the perfect mini getaway.
And of course I had to include some jewelry 🙂
Tiffany & Co. Paloma Picasso Love bracelet— $175
Okay, well obviously the last three pieces of jewelry below are more like fantasies and not realistic gift suggestions for Valentine's Day, but it's still nice to dream, right?
Tiffany & Co. Love bangle in 18k rose gold with two little diamonds– $3,800.
Cartier Love Bracelet in Rose Gold— $1,450
Happy shopping! I hope everyone has a wonderful February 14th whether you're celebrating it as a Single's Appreciation day (like I did last year) or a day to enjoy with your sweetheart.
