Valentines Day is soon approaching – yep, we’re only 2 weeks away! I like to think that I’m always prepped in advance with great gifts but this year it kind of slipped my mind with so many other things going on. So while I’m doing some online shopping, I thought it might be helpful if I compiled a list of great Valentine’s Day gifts (that could also be referenced for birthdays or any sort of gifting!)
It might be obvious to you, but guys don’t always know what we want. Send him here for some good ideas.
Who doesn’t want a good pair of pajamas to lounge around in at home. A cute teddy is like the dressed up version of being comfortable or you can opt for an upgraded silky matching set.
Sleepy Jones Bishop Pajama Set $178
Hanky Panky Satin Cami & Shorts Sleepwear Set $92
Eberjey Lace Trimmed Playsuit $97
Equipment Lillian Classic PJ Set $368
Cosabella Amore Bella Pajamas $130
Because it’s so cold right now, a snuggly robe could be the perfect gift to use after a warm shower or to lounge around the house when you’re getting ready to brace the cold outdoors.
Eberjey Stretch Modal Jersey Robe $98
Bedhead Black Embroidered Mrs. Robe $110
This one is self explanatory, but candles make your house smell amazing. I light one everyday. They could also be used to set the mood on a special night.
Byredo Bibliothèque Scented Candles $85
Nest Fragrances Japanese Black Current Candle $42
Scents evoke memories and make you feel good. I don’t feel fully dressed before I spray myself with perfume. Why not have your loved one pick out something they like for you?
There’s nothing better than receiving chocolate. Whether it’s a box of mysteries, some truffles or chocolate covered fruit. Plus they’re easy to share – or not.

Godiva Milk Chocolate Gift Box $39.95
La Maison Du Chocolat Flavored Truffles $60

Who doesn’t love jewelry? I’m personally into stacking rings and dainty necklaces these days. These don’t have to be big ticket items, rather little investments that’ll always remind you of this Valentine’s.

Jenny Patinkin Luxury Vegan Brush Set $65
Bobbi Brown Classic Collection $265

Another classic, which is always welcome but now there are new brands that help keep your bouquet alive for a full year. Enough said.
One In A Million Roses Classic Collection $259
One In A Million Roses Basic Box $149
This is another easy piece that’s maybe too practical for you to think to buy for yourself. If you have a wallet you love already, you might need a card case to use in smaller bags or to just slip in your pocket while running errands. Plus, you’ll think of your partner every time you see it.

Every time I ask my husband what he wants as a gift, he says nothing. So without his help, here’s a little guide:

If he doesn’t already have these, he needs them. They’re great for hands-free calling and switching to music while running around in the cold.

This blog is all about gift giving, and what’s wrong with gifting yourself? There are some things that you might really want but they just don’t feel right as a gift. Treat yourself.
There’s nothing I love doing for myself more than rejuvenating my skin. Whether it’s the material I’m sleeping on or a quick facial, I don’t think I could have enough of these little gadgets.
