Bespoke Post Canvas Weekender Bag
My husband travels a lot for work, and he is always looking for a great bag. Enter the Canvas Weekender Bag from Line of Trade. This bag is designed after a stonemason’s tool bag, but thoroughly updated for today’s needs. There’s even a pocket for a 15 inch laptop. Crafted of thick and sturdy cotton canvas on a metal frame, this bag has real panache. Add in the leather handles and metal feet, and the looks belie the $75 price tag.
Maison Miru Explorer Bracelet
Maison Miru makes great jewelry that’s genderless and unisex. The Explorer Bracelet is a perfect example. A bold, but not too chunky paperclip chain bracelet is the perfect bracelet for him, her, or them. Wear it as it is or use it as a jumping off point for a great charm bracelet. Personally, I love it paired with the Pave Heart charm and think that makes a great Valentine’s Day gift.
Have a date night at home with classic games like Dominoes and Cribbage – but with a twist. They’re totally updated and modern versions, yet still classic. The Frank Lloyd Wright Dominoes match up classic FLW designs rather than numbers. Perfect for the architect, graphic designer, or just someone who loves design. The Cribbage Set has the same classic design as the original game, but in all new modern yet retro colors.
18.21 Man Made Absolute Mahogany Spirits Cologne
Absolute Mahogany Spirits is a sophisticated cologne designed for the modern man. This parfum-grade fragrance is a crisp, herbaceous scent that is ideal for daytime wear. Absolute Mahogany is a masculine blend featuring Italian mandarin, bergamot, velvety cardamom, cassia bark, clary sage, cinnamon, night blooming jasmine, rustic Mahogany woods, creamy Tahitian vanilla bean, and golden amber. The scent is suitable for both men and women, transcending traditional gender boundaries.
Packaged in a vintage-inspired glass bottle that looks quite a bit like a cocktail shaker, the cologne pays homage to the spirited ambiance of Prohibition-era speakeasies. Adding to this ambiance, the cologne is crafted in small batches within a niche barrel house. 18.21 Man Made’s Absolute Mahogany promises a luxurious and memorable olfactory experience, making it a timeless and thoughtful gift for any occasion.
High on Love Plumping Lip Balm and Lip Gloss
Get bold kissable lips with High on Love and their lip plumping items. These are designed to be used on their own, but they’re even better with a partner. They definitely have a tingle, but you quickly get used to it. And while the lip balm smells a little bit like glazed donuts, it definitely does not taste like them! The Plumping Lip Gloss is great to wear on its own or add it as a topper to your favorite lip color. High on Love is cruelty free, vegan, and made with clean ingredients, too.
Jewelry is always a winning gift, and it doesn’t have to be pricy. These pieces from Hello Adorn are so cute, and items that they’ll reach for again and again. The dainty Paper Heart necklace is a great layering piece, but also looks great all on its own. The dimensional pendant adds that little sumtin-sumtin, and is appropriate for all ages.
The Sweetheart Slides earrings are a perfect everyday earring that adds a bit of personality to your look. They’re like classic hoops, but heart shaped. The pointy part of the heart is open, so they just slide right into your ear piercing. And they’re a great size to make a statement, but not so big that they overpower anything.
Give her the gift of warmth and style with a Pacas scarf. The pink and red plaid oversized scarf is super cute and perfect for Valentine’s Day – and beyond. Made from alpaca, these scarves are so soft and fluffy. They’re also really lightweight while also being incredibly warm. Alpaca also happens to be hypoallergenic, so you don’t have to worry about anyone’s allergies. This is also a great gift idea for Valentine’s Day for teens.
Tocca Gia Eau de Parfum
Tocca Gia is a fabulous floral fragrance that doesn’t lean too young, or too old. It has a somewhat sweet, but not too overpowering opening due to the tangerine and bergamot, but then develops into a luscious floral scent. It’s grounded by amber and sandalwood and just feels like warmer days. It’s a great year-round fragrance, and would make a great signature scent.
Also – can we talk about the gorgeous bottle? Designed after the classic perfume bottles of yesteryear, the bottle for Gia is absolutely stunning. The pinky red tones that fade into yellow then crystal, and the highly detailed antique brass cap just add to the allure. Gia is definitely a fragrance that is meant to impress.
For the Kids
Don’t leave out the littlest lovebugs. Tubby Todd, the renowned children’s bath and body brand, has created the cutest Valentine’s Day set just for them. Consisting of a Hair & Body Wash, an Everyday Lotion, and several bath bombs, all in a fantastic limited edition Raspberry Black Currant scent. Tubby Todd uses clean ingredients and natural scents in their products, so you can feel good about using them on your littles. Or for yourself, I won’t tell! The line is gluten free, dairy free, and
Squishmallow Take 4
If you have tweens, teens, or even young adults, you know the obsession that is Squishmallows. Take it to the next level with the Squishmallows Take 4 Card Game. Be the first to build your squad of 4 related Squishmallows squad cards. If two players try to grab the same card, you have to race to grab Benny first. The game is simple enough for young players, but fun for the whole family. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
I spent the majority of my life in SoCal, and one of the things that we did as a treat was take a trip to See’s Candy. See’s Candy has just about every kind of dipped candy that you could imagine. My favorites are Kona Mocha and Apricot Delight, but honestly, there’s not really a bad one on the lineup.
Get your loved one a box of See’s Candy for Valentine’s Day. You can choose your own mix and fill it with their favorites or get one of See’s prepackaged Valentine’s Day assortments. I highly recommend the Red Roses Box. It’s really impressive, and more than enough to share.
Original Crown Mill Stationery
What’s more romantic than a handwritten letter to your lover? Not a whole lot. Good stationery, like a set from Original Crown Mill, will take this up a notch or two hundred. The gorgeous cards and matching envelopes have a cream color and a laid texture, which just say elegant. It comes packaged in a gorgeous silver box, too, so all you really need is a bow. Pair this with a fantastic pen for a real treasure.
