Tuesday is February 14th – the biggest Hallmark holiday of the year! I truly believe this day was created to boost chocolate and greeting card sales before the Easter holiday approaches. Because let’s be honest – we shouldn’t wait for one day of the year to remind those that we love how special they are! Al and I like to celebrate the holiday by planning a special activity together since our busy schedules sometimes don’t allow for as many things as we like. He will be meeting me in the city for a special night out on Tuesday 🙂 It’s also a great day to plan a night out with the girlfriends for a fun Galentine’s day!
Just in case the holiday has snuck up on you – I have put together a list of my favorite things! You can use this as a guide to grab something special for your best friend, forward the link to your man for some subtle hints, or maybe you want to pick up something for yourself as a reminder of how badass you are! Some of them may not arrive in time for Tuesday – but you can always extend the week of love with an IOU 🙂
Under Armour Tote Bag: You will not catch me without my tote bag these days. Perfect for my commuter life to go from work – to workout- to happy hour. These bag is both stylish and practical and the perfect present for a woman on the go!
Love Your Melon Beanie: These hats have became my favorite since I got my first one just over a year ago. They are perfect for the cold winter months and also support a great cause. They have also extended their line to include shirts, headbands, and blankets!
Victoria’s Secret Velvet Matte Cream Lip Stain: So while everyone has been stockpiling their Kylie Lip Kits – I found love in my VS Matte Lip Stain. I’ve been rocking the Adored color for both day and night and it doesn’t smudge as you dance the night away.
Shades Club: I first heard about Shades Club when they launched their Kickstarter over a year ago. I loved the idea and I was one of the first people to sign up! It was a great way to expand my sunglass collection while trying styles I probably wouldn’t have ever thought to buy. I also have gifted a few pairs to Al and he loves them just as much! You can sign up for 1 month or a whole year!
Eating Evolved: If you want to include chocolate – make it one she won’t feel guilty about. Eating Evolved cups is my go-to treat and the best part is that they are paleo, vegan, dairy free, and refined sugar free.
Personalized Wine Glasses: I love wine as much as I love customized wine glasses. I have ordered a ton of glasses from Alissa’s Etsy shop including my customized B&B glasses!
Gym Equipment: I love to have equipment at home so I can get in a workout anytime! My home gym requirements include a TRX, jump rope, sliders, mini bands, and more!
Other ideas include workout gear, dry shampoo, nail polish, wine, wine stoppers, nail polish, and last but not least a special home cooked meal ❤
Feel free to share any of your ideas! I’d love to hear them!
Happy Valentine’s Day! I love each and every one of you!
