Hey guys! Tired of giving us flowers and candy every year for Valentine’s Day? We are too! YesISaidIt. As much as I love chocolate and roses, it gets pretty monotonous after a while. Not to mention if you girl is on the Weight Loss Resolution Train, she will resent you for bringing that box of Russel Stovers anywhere near her. Trust me on this one.
Valentine’s Day is a day that to celebrate your love. Yes, its a “Hallmark Holiday” – so what? It is also a grand opportunity to show each other how much you care. Yes you probably (hopefully!?) just got her something at Christmas – and yes she is going to expect something again for Valentine’s Day. Suck it up guys, its TWO GIFTS. You can do it.
And I am here to help. Because I know us girls are hard to shop for, and to save you from the boring “same ole thing” of flowers and candy I have put together this list of awesomely amazing gifts that you can get your gal for Valentine’s Day. I might even go so far as to promise you will be rewarded highly for it if you know what I mean.
Matching Pillow Cases
Want a great gift that she is sure to see every single day? These matching pillow cases are probably one of the cutest things I have seen in a long time. BoldLoft has tons of adorable Couples Pillowcases that are sure to remind her of your love every time she lays down… *wink wink*
In fact, while you are there, check out their couples bedding, couples mugs, and couples tshirts… this entire site rocks!
As much as I love those shopping mall jewelry stores, they all pretty much have the exact.same.thing. And really, how many tennis bracelets does one girl need? Fragments is an amazing website that has jewelry from more than 50 top designers – each piece with a unique look and style.
I personally love everything from the designer DJULA – it is sophisticated but sexy with just the right amount of bling. I also love everything in the Bridal Collection. Mike and I have chosen rings and they are not your typical wedding set – and that is what makes me love them even more. Your girl is unique – get her jewelry that says so.
A Mixed Tape
Or the 2014 version – a mixed playlist. Some love songs are timeless, and nothing is more romantic than a girl listening to songs that you have picked just for her.
Need some song inspiration? Billboard recently put out their list of 50 Greatest Love Songs Of All Time… and I agree with.. well some of them anyway. If you have been together a long time, songs like “You’re Still The One” and “Still In To You” are good picks. A new love? How about “I Knew I Loved You” or “You’ve Got A Way.”
Don’t think all of the songs have to be sappy though – Mike and I rocked out to “Kiss Me Through The Phone” and “Poker Face” when we were first getting started 🙂
Your Song In Art
Speaking of, do you have “a song?” Every couple needs a song – so whether you have one (better ask her…) or whether you pick the one that makes you think of her, Etsy Artist CraftyWeeGifts can create a beautiful print using the lyrics shipped for under $20!
Choose songs from your Mixed Playlist to make it even more special. You can get your lyrics in a variety of different shapes – like a star or heart – and a variety of different colors.
A Personalized Bottle Of Wine
If your girl is a wine lover like yours truly, a personalized wine bottle from EtchingExpressions.com is sure to be a huge hit this Valentine’s Day. They have several awesome Valentine’s Day Ideas or they can even put your picture right onto the bottle… how amazing is that?! Popping the question? Propose on a wine bottle and have that memory last forever… although don’t be surprised if she does not want to pop this cork – these bottles are WAY too beautiful to actually use!
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show your girl just how much you love her, and that your love is bigger than a heart shaped box and flowers that will only last a few days. Get her a gift that is as unique and wonderful as she is and that will last for years to come.
