I’ll go ahead and admit right upfront that I am not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day. I refuse to go to eat dinner that day or even the weekend of, because I don’t want to wait an hour to get a table and another hour to get my food (don’t get in the way of my food!), I have no use for flowers and after being together with my guy for over 15 years… it kind of feels like a silly thing to celebrate one day of the year. For us, Valentine’s Day is more about our kids, getting them Valentine’s cards for their friends, buying candy and getting ‘gifts’ from them. One thing I don’t mind about Valentine’s Day is another excuse (like I need it) to eat chocolate and candy.
I can’t remember the last time we exchanged cards or flowers or a box of chocolates but there are a few gifts I have my eye on, not just for Valentine’s Day, but in general. Here are a few of the items on my wishlist that would also make great Valentine’s Day gifts for a lot of girls. 🙂
Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Her:
I looooove bralettes, especially the lacy kind like this. Who likes to wear bras all day long? Unfortunately, I need the support so these lacy bralettes are a lifesaver for me. I wear them every day when I’m at home and I even sleep in them. Most of the time they are cheaper than bras and a lot more comfortable than them.
Lounge-wear in general is a staple for me. Everything I do laundry, half of my clothes is lounge-wear and pajama-type clothes. These silky sleep shorts look so comfortable.
My feet are always freezing. It doesn’t matter if it’s summer or winter, my toes are gonna be cold. Socks aren’t enough for me (even when I wear two pairs) and the cold tile floor makes me even colder. The slippers I have right now are really old and I could really use a new and warmer pair.
I am not really a perfume kind of girl, mostly because my smell senses are really strong and almost all perfumes feel overpowering on me. I got a sample of this Calvin Klein Forever Now a few months ago and I immediately fell in love with it. It’s light and smells oh so good! I’m almost done with my sample and even though I’ve never owned a perfume, I want this one really bad. The Eternity For Now version for men also smells amazing.
I like to listen music all day long. Mostly, when I do household chores and workout. I use my iPod but it’s kinda messy to wear and move. I would love to have a cute portable bluetooth speaker, as they allow much more freedom while moving around.
Urban Decay/Gwen Stefani Blush Palette: I don’t need anymore makeup. I really don’t. I know this…and yet I can’t help but want this one really bad. I have been on the hunt for a blush palette and these colors are perfect for my skin tone.
Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm: I am kind of obsessed with lip balms. I have to have one on me at all times or else I get in a really bad mood. Fresh Sugar has some of the best lip balm products I’ve tried and I would love to try this Advanced Therapy Lip Balm.
In terms of jewelry, I prefer classic items that can become staples in your collection and will go with anything and everything. These simple, but beautiful light pink studs are perfect.
Like I said before, I love lounge-wear and sleepwear. I have a long black robe right now but this baby pink one from H&M is calling my name for the upcoming summer months.
