Today’s post isn’t technically sponsored but some items included in this guide were gifted to us for review.
Well, hello there, February! Time to celebrate L-O-V-E!
Traditionally, Dominic and I have not exchanged gifts for Valentine’s Day. We always try to go out for a little celebration sometime this month, but on the tail of Christmas it just never seemed necessary to go gift crazy.
But now, as we approach our Sweet Sixteen (What? how have we been married that long?!?), we both seem to enjoy surprising one another more often. Thus, Valentine’s Day is much more on our radar … the perfect time to say, “Hey, this made me think of you. Let’s celebrate us!”
Below you’ll find a fun mix of gift ideas that would work for both him and her. Or, both of you! Couples gifts, or things you can do together, really are the winner when it comes to celebrating togetherness.
Happy Valentine’s Month!
Get in the kitchen together this Valentine’s Day with a delicious appetizer spread! Start with an acacia cheese board from Lynn & Liana Designs and add all your love’s favorites snacks for the start to a wonderful home date. These boards are so beautiful; truly an heirloom piece.
Set the mood with a candle from Roam Homegrown. This Texas small business makes the most amazing candles and offers picture perfect scents like lavender driftwood, chili mahogany, and jasmine citron.
Did you see Nutr on Shark Tank? Well, there’s good reason! Homemade nut milk is the way to go these days! Almond milk is our favorite – I use it in our protein shakes almost every day. Cheers to healthier habits! That’s definitely something to celebrate together.
The Veer wagon has been part of our family for years now and I’m always thrilled to see what they come up with next. Recently they’ve debuted the Veer Adventure Blanket and it’s the very best! This rad blanket has interior pockets and a snap at the top to keep it positioned just so. Lightweight and washable, it’s ready for date days and nights anywhere and everywhere.
We’ve recently tried out some lovely products from August + Monroe and Marlowe. The Calm Cream from August + Monroe is a dream and my husband gave Marlowe’s bar soap a big thumbs up. Bonus – August + Monroe’s gua sha stone is a perfect wellness gift. Get that lymph system workin’ … together!
Skip the box of heart chocolates. Once you delve into Delve you will never go back. These truffles are AMAZING. So very hard to stop at just one … and at just 55 calories, you don’t have to! The perfect little sweet for your sweetie :)
There is a sort of peace in gifting a practical gift – something your loved one will enjoy on a regular basis. That’s Arvin Goods. Quality sock and beanies in the most beautiful neutrals inspired by the Pacific Northwest.
I’ve raved about Cozy Earth before, and, well, I’m back! The Rib-Knit Collection is my new favorite and their men’s line is divine too. Everything Cozy Earth creates is so simple, but so luxurious. The kind of second skin that clothing is meant to be. Best of all, everything on the site is on sale for Valentine’s Day!
Well Told customizes tumblers, wine glasses, flasks, and so much more with a map of your choosing. This is such a creative way to honor a special place or memory! Well Told doesn’t stop at maps though. You can choose a night sky, marathon route, or even a custom quote. Brilliant! And so thoughtful.
Speaking of drinkware, why not pair something from Well Told with a favorite liquor? We’re margarita folk over here and 1800 Cristalino has been our tequila of choice. Then again, a Paloma is always a treat and Fire Cider is perfect for the chilly winter months. Plus, I can’t get over how beautiful the 1800 Cristalino bottle is. Do you ever pick your adult beverages by the label or bottle design, or is that just me?
Does your partner have a little office or nook in the garage that always runs cold? Gift them the Dreo Space Heater! This little powerhouse is one of those functional gifts that will make them smile and feel loved every time they turn it on. Dominic has this exact one in his shop and loves that his toes no longer freeze under his desk!
Who wants to twin with their honey? It’s me! I do! Coalatree has the best eco-friendly outdoor gear and Dominic and I can’t wait to rock matching baseline mid layer jackets on our anniversary trip this spring. We’re going to hike for a few days in New Mexico! Stay tuned for more on that adventure!
Ok, now it’s your turn! What would you add to a Valentine’s Day wish list? What are you gifting this season to your special guy or gal?
