Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. I happen to think that one of the reasons people hate Valentine’s Day is the cheese factor. Stuffed animals from CVS, cupids, and heart shaped jewelry (unless it’s this) I can do without.
I’d prefer to celebrate with a night out at one of my favorite restaurants and a heart felt card. But… if gifts were to be exchanged there are a few things I wouldn’t mind receiving. Hello, pink sapphire love knot ring and monogrammed robe.
If you’re not partnered up, there’s no reason not to show a little love to yourself, or maybe your mom, sister, or best girlfriend. I think this cheeky John Derian tray is pretty amazing (also available in “my love” and “desire“) and would actually prefer my roses in the form of a Diptyque candle instead of a bouquet.
Will you be celebrating or giving any gifts this year?
P.S for more Valentine’s Day gift ideas check out my Houzz post this month.
Wishing you the merriest Christmas and happiest holidays!

I think you guys might be a little gift guided out, so don’t worry, this is the last one! Last but certainly not least, because I think any of these subscriptions would make a pretty great gift.I marked two of my favorites above, which I’ve tested and can personally vouch for.
I’m sure most of you are familiar with Birchbox, but in case you haven’t heard of Kiwi Crate, I’d highly recommend it for any of the little ones in your life. I tested a holiday box with my 7 year old neighbor and we had a blast making the gingerbread house and swirl ornaments for her tree.
With art classes being cut back in schools across the country, these are an amazing way to foster creativity and make it a bit easier on mom and dad by providing the idea, directions, and materials. Much better than a video game, don’t you think?

Don’t we all secretly want to be the jet-setter, flitting off from one exotic location to the next? Unless you have a private plane at your disposal (which I most certainly do not, and if you do, do you have room for one more?) the actual getting there part of travel can be decidedly unglamorous.
Here are a few presents she’ll be happy to put to good use on her next getaway. They might not make up for the indignity of walking through security barefoot, but at least she’lll feel a bit more stylish holding on to a leopard print passport holder.

I have to admit, the first two gift guides in this series (The Decorator and The Accessorator) were a breeze to put together, but I was a little stumped at first when it came to The Boys. Ultimately I turned to my boyfriend for advice who reminded me that for most guys, comfort is king. You also can’t go wrong with the classics.
I’ve personally given at least four of these gifts, and each received rave reviews. My boyfriend particularly loves his Patagonia Classic Retro X jacket and J. Crew Sherpa Lined Hoodie. They’ve become somewhat of a uniform for his morning dog walking duty. Perhaps this year I’ll complete the outfit for him with some sensor touch gloves!
