Keeping along with my Valentine’s Day gift lists (his & hers), here are my picks for kids, all inspired and approved by my 4 minis.

  • Jumbo gummy bears. If you’re one for giving sweet V-Day gifts, go all out!
  • Gliders. Fun for any kid in your life, my boys would love these
  • Heart robot tee. Personalize these with your minis’ name
  • Ring toss. Super cute for any V-Day party or just at home fun
  • Heart crayons. These handmade bits of cuteness are almost too cute to use
  • DIY mailbox craft kits. Anything arts and crafts and my minis are all over it. I love the free reign these bring for their creativity

V-Day gifts for him

I showed you my Valentines gift picks for the ladies yesterday, now it’s the mens turn.

I don’t like going mushy and romantic with men’s V-Day gifts, let’s face it, Valentine is more for women then men. Keeping that in mind, I always find it a little difficult to think of gifts for him that still keep with the Valentine’s Day heart/love theme and don’t just seem like an any-occasion present.

That being said, here are 5 of my picks that your guy is sure to love

  • RayBan Wayfarers. These classics never die and go with everything. This pop of red color is perfect for Valentine’s Day
  • Heart beat bowtie. I’m just swooning over the cuteness of this one, it’s my favorite thing on this gift list. I wish the hubbs wore bowties just so I could get this one for him!
  • Beer Basket. You can buy a pre-assembled one but they’re also a perfect & simple DIY
  • Star Wars cufflinks. For any Han and Leia fan in your life, I know you know one
  • Giant fortune cookie. Yum! A must buy for the sweet tooth guy. Add your touch with your own personalized fortune cookie message

V-Day gifts for her

Just a few weeks until cupid strikes; Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.

Today I’m sharing my gift ideas for her. Make sure to leave this out for the hubbs to stumble upon!

Here are my top picks for cute heart inspired finds.

  •  Heart sunnies. These deep red ones are adorable without looking like they’re made for a toddler
  • “I love you” dishes. Great for throwing jewelry on or keeping a handful of your favorite candy nearby
  •  Lipscrub & lipstick. Gift them together for a perfect pout. Splurge on the lipstick with this perfect Gucci red
  •  Slate cheese board. I’d package this with a bottle of wine, cheese and fruit. A ready to go picnic
  •  Gourmet hand-painted chocolates. These Ghyslain hearts with flavors like dark chocolate ganache espresso & bananas foster are a real treat
  • Key pendants. These Tiffany’s keys always get me. My mama heart loves them and wants one for each of my minis
