Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her


Valentine’s Day is coming up and it has always been a holiday I truly love. I mean, how fun is it to spend an entire day reminding all your people just how much you love them. As a kid I always loved making Valentine’s Day cards and passing them out at school and to my family. I’m excited to sit down with Brynlee to make some special ones with her for her to give out this year, bring on the glitter, rhinestones and glue!

In case you are having a hard time coming up with something to give that special lady in your life, I am here today with a gift guide filled with things she’s sure to love!

Love Potion Tumbler– How cute is this tumbler, perfect for all the iced coffee or tea drinkers out there. I personally love having one of these for my water, cutting down on plastic water bottles and I prefer drinking out of a straw anyway. If your local you can pick on up here and not have to wait 2 days for shipping (you’re welcome).

Pink Travel Mug– If iced drinks aren’t her thing, never fear, here is an equally cute travel mug to keep those drinks nice and hot! I love the quilted texture on this mug.

Necklace and Earrings– Love these from Kendra Scott, there are tons of colors to choose from making them the perfect accessory for everyday wear.

Trinket Dish– And how about a lovely little dish for her to store her jewelry in.

Nail Polish– Some about some pretty pink or red nail polish paired with a gift card for a manicure and a pedicure. I don’t know very many (okay any) ladies out there who would love the chance to pamper themselves.

Pens– How darling are these pens, the perfect addition to any desk top.

Gift Set– Speaking of pampering, how lovely would it be to receive this little set with a candle, body scrub and soap.

Cozy Robe– I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but here in the dessert, winter has finally decided to show up. Nothing is better than snuggling up in a cozy robe on those cold winter mornings and evenings, and let me just say, there is nothing cozier than this robe, it really is a dream!

Favorite Things Friday – Nail Polish

This past week I cut out some time for myself and painted my nails for the first time in a long, long time! So long, that I can’t even remember when the last time was… Before Brynlee, I painted my nails all the time, but now, I always have a hard time finding the time.

A few weeks ago, I came across this nail polish brand while grocery shopping at Sprouts (Target and Ulta also sell it or you can get it on Amazon) and bonus, it was on sale for $5.99! It struck my interest because it is formaldehyde, toluene, camphor and butyl phthalate free. I’ve also become a lot more conscious about the harmful chemicals that we are subjecting ourselves to since having Brynlee and I am trying to find affordable alternatives. This nail polish fits the bill perfectly; regular price is $7.99, which is still cheaper than my prior OPI and Essie obsession. In my experience, the Mineral Fusion nail polish goes on incredibly smooth! I’ve had trouble with other brands bubbling up or having a bumpy finish. Maybe that’s just me, but I don’t feel like I did anything different this time than in the past when I’ve painted my nails and with the Mineral Fusion nail polish it looks like I had my nails done at the salon. I purchased Slate, the picture really doesn’t do it justice, it is the perfect color for fall and while I plan on trying additional colors I already know this one will be a go to.
