Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

I know it’s a little obnoxious to talk about gift buying this soon after the holidays, but several of the things on my list are personalized and could take some lead time. Besides, it’s fun to treat the one’s you care about - including yourself. So here is a little list of ideas to inspire you and give you something to think about on these cold, dreary days.

For Her…Or You

Louisa Guild Jewelry

Louisa Guild Jewelry is the hand-sculpted brand by Designer, Louisa Colmore Hurst. Each piece is very special. Visit her site. I promise you will not be disappointed. The only problem will be deciding on what you like the best. She will also collaborate with you on custom pieces.

Ring Bowls From The Painted Press

These sweet little ring dishes can be personalized in several ways and they are very reasonably priced.


“The stylish flat that’s secretly a slipper” … I love these shoes! They are so comfortable and come in a wide variety of styles. Even the box is cute.

For Him

Leather Key Organizer

If he has a lot of keys help him tidy them up a bit.

Mark & Graham

They have a large variety of great looking small leather goods.

For Family Fun

Life Size Tumbling Timbers

Sorry for the terrible picture, but this giant size “Jenga” is so fun for the whole family! I know because we have one.

For The Pet Lover

Pet Slippers from Cuddle Clones

These aren’t cheap ($199), but the site does offer discounts to first time buyers and they are adorable.

Lovimals Custom Pet Socks

Who wouldn’t want to walk around all day with an image of their beloved pet?

For Your House

For Valentines Day this year show your house a little love with a treat or two…

Birch Logs

I love having birch logs in the house any time of year. They are always in my fireplace in the spring and summer and in the months when I am using my fireplace, they are stuffed in some kind of container like the one below. Ballard Designs offers bundles in two sizes and the mix is lovely.

Natural Stone Flowers

My kids gave me the purple ones pictured below for Christmas and I absolutely adore them! These came from The Collective Dallas. If their website says sold out - contact them anyway because they assured me they had more on the way. These flowers will make you smile with no watering required.

Umbrella Stand & Classic Black Umbrella

It is always nice to have a pretty umbrella stand by your front door. It is something very practical that can be pretty too. If you stock it with at least one classic black umbrella, it will seamless blend into your decor.

Fresh New Doormat

Spruce up your entryway with a fresh new doormat.

I hope I have given you some ideas. As I said in the beginning, I know we just wrapped up Christmas, and it seems crazy to talk about buying more now, but if you want to order something personalized - it’s time to get going so by the time February 14th rolls around you’ll be ready!
