Happy February! We had a reader request for a Valentine’s Gift Guide and we are happy to oblige. We love a good list but we especially love a list of Valentine’s gifts we would like to give and receive.

You can’t go wrong with jewelry. We love pieces that embody who we are, what we do and what we dream of. We especially love the delicate Dogearred Wish pendant and Kate Spade’s cheeky Tell All Smitten Emoji pendant and “One in a Million” pendant.
Both of our husbands gifted us with makeup at Christmastime. We think it would be a safe bet to do so again for Valentine’s Day. Grab the Love Flushed Blush Palette and the Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette both from Too Faced.
Is it wrong to want to stay in our pajamas all day this Valentine’s day? Brunch at home, wearing jammies and watching Netflix sounds like perfection. We love these fun, flirty and comfy sets from Splendid and Honeydew Intimates. If we must get dressed, we want to be wrapped up in the Barefoot Dreams Circle Cardigan and pretend like we’re wearing pjs.
The guys in our lives can be difficult to buy for. Let’s be honest, our husbands would probably be happy with a meal made with love and a nice back rub. We love the affordable line of bath, body and massage oils from Shea Moisture. They come in a variety of scents but the Lavender & Wild Orchid tops our list.
Our guys’ skin needs a little TLC too this time of year, doesn’t it? This natural shave soap from The Men’s Soap Company will get them a barber shop quality lather. And, if you guy prefers an electric razor, invest in this Phillips Norelco 3D.
If your guy is willing, we love this 3-year couples journal. Daily prompts and blank pages to profess your love for each other. Imagine your kids finding it 30 years from now! What a wonderful keepsake. On the opposite end of the spectrum, get some Sugru packets. We like putting these two items together for a cheeky play on “fixing” or putting things back “together.”
We agree a little something-something is fun for the kids, too. Fulfill needs with a V-Day twist. We love pajamas for the little ones, including these R2-D2 pjs good for both boys and girls. If your daughter likes pink, these J. Crew Doodle themed jammies are adorable.
Coloring books, new art pencils and books like, Nina’s Book of Little Things and Dear Dad: An Arts and Crafts Book, both encourage imagination and communication. For holiday themed stories, check out A Crakenstein Valentine.
Older kids might be more difficult. How about In Bloom, a lovely roller ball perfume from Clinique Happy? We’re obsessed with the rose gold wireless headphones from Beats by Dr. Dre. They come in a variety of colors, too. Or, grab a funky tee from Threadless and show them that you’re still (sort of) hip.
Valentine’s day doesn’t have to be exclusive to your sweetie. Friends, neighbors, parents, grandparents, teachers and so on would love to receive something special. Here’s our favorite picks that are perfect for anyone special. The I Heart Weekends tote bag from Dogeared and the Treat Yourself tote from Kate Spade are so cute and functional.
These limited edition monogramed mugs from Anthropologie are a steal at $10. Add a Starbucks gift card and call it done. For function and style, grab a water bottle from S’Well. For a little whimsy, gift these heart shaped egg molds to put a little love into an easy meal.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
