I love, love! Valentine’s Day is a difficult gifting season for me though. We just wrapped up the Christmas gift-giving season and now I feel like I get into the same place of wondering to get Alex and he needs ideas from me too. I always love sprinkling in any gifts that I didn’t get Alex for Christmas that I always thought he would like, that gives me a good starting point. Also, I don’t think you can go wrong with skipping gifting a lot of gifts and planning a trip or experience together, Winter is always a good time of year to get out of town and go somewhere warmer. I found this fun scratch-off date night ideas pack from Amazon and it looks so fun, Alex and I are going to have to try it.
I love going the self-care route for Valentine’s Day, I feel like it is such a time to treat yourself and even your significant other. Have you heard of The Skinny Confidential? Lauren Bosstick created these amazing products that sculpt your face and de-puff and I use all of them in my weekly self-care rotation.
A simple gift guide for him, I don’t know why but, I find gifting for the men and your life and parents to be the most difficult. These custom t-shirts are the greatest thing I have ever seen. You can put photos of yourself on them or even your dog? I just think they are hilarious and such an unexpected gift.
We simply can’t forget about our most beloved family members, our pets! Arlo is simply the best boy and I love spoiling him and getting him something for each holiday. I love these Valentine’s toys and the cute little bandana to dress him up.
After a Christmas full of gifting for kiddos, the ideas aren’t flowing as much after the holidays. I love these cute heart aprons for cooking in the kitchen and this neutral playhouse so that the playroom can still stay aesthetically pleasing.
Oh the gifts for the parents, I love giving something small to my parents for Valentine’s Day because its a nice gesture outside of the regular holidays to show how much you love them. This candle warmer has been a new favorite gift for me. It’s such a nice decor touch and avoids the “make sure you blow out your candles” thought before you leave your house.

And finally, why not treat yourself? From self-care with Lux Unfiltered products, to a new comfy set or silk sleep mask to improve your sleep, make sure you are treating yourself for Valentine’s Day this year. I love making this holiday about how I treat myself as much as gifting for others.
