Valentines Day Gift Ideas

Growing up my mom would always get us something for Valentines Day- but it HAD to be pink or red.  This rule was unquestionable and made for some interesting gifts for my brothers.  A few of you asked for some Valentines Day ideas for yourselves and others, so I pulled together some items (mostly adhering to Mom’s rule) to get you thinking…

You can’t go wrong with a little piece by John Derian. So lovely and appropriate for the holiday!



A framed print from Etsy artists are affordable and sweet (click on pic for link):


Make for a fun night by giving your Valentine a gift basket with a great bottle of wine, delicious cupcakes from Crumbs Bakery and my favorite game, Table Topics for Couples. It’ll stir up some very interesting conversations.

Sick of getting him boxers with hearts all over them? These tattoo “heart on his sleeve” pajamas are pretty cute without being “cutesie.”

I am still a sucker for a dude in a pink shirt in the summertime. J.Crew can hook him up with a snazzy one.

Send a sweet treat of adorably decorated cookies to anyone- from my favorite Fancypants Bakery!


Flowers ordered over the phone or internet do not have to be all roses and baby’s breath (ick)- chek out these choices designed by Martha Stewart and Vera Wang.



For jewelry that doesn’t bank the bank but ups the ante on style look no further than J.Crew and Banana. Valentines Day jewelry need not be delicate and heart shaped, surprise her with something trendy and super stylish she’ll love to wear.

And yes I’m posting this necklace again as a hint to someone specific who reads this blog and *might* be looking for a Valentines Day gift for me. To avoid any confusion, Andrew this is YOU. Subtlety is not my forte, folks. :)

Dying for that little blue box? These Morroccan inspired resin cuffs by Paloma Picasso are $150 and so modern!

For the fashionista, Anthropogie has some sweet and sexy tops that would be perfect for Valentines night out as well as some darling pajama pants that I ADORE!



Looking for something a smidge sexier that she’ll actually wear? I am loving the modern look of this Elle McPhearson set and loungewear set from Eberjey.


Happy shopping! xoxo
