Valentine’s Day can be a tough holiday to celebrate. It’s become over-commercialized, making you feel like you have to spend a certain amount of money.
But really, Valentine’s Day is just a reminder to show the person you love, that you love them. Obviously this should be a year-round thing, but having a day dedicated to it isn’t so bad. Showing someone you love them can be as simple as spending time with them (and giving them your full attention), planning a fun activity together or writing them a nice note/telling them how important they are to you.
Of course, you may also want to give your valentine a gift. Here’s a list of some gift ideas I put together, ranging in price from $6 to $225.
As shipping deadlines quickly approach, now is the time to place last minute holiday orders! If you’re still filling stockings, here are 7 easy stocking stuffer ideas.
Opening my stocking has always one of my favorite parts of Christmas morning. When I was younger, I would wake up in the middle of the night, go downstairs and look at my stocking to get a “preview” of my gifts. Did anyone else do this? Then in the morning, me and my brothers would open our stockings first (all hurriedly and at the same time), before opening our gifts under the tree, one at a time.
This year, I made a conscious effort to read more. After years of not reading much, it was fun to get back into it and read some really great books. This gift guide has a book for everyone! For more of my all time favorite books, click here.
Earlier this week, I shared my first holiday gift guide: 5 of my favorite items I own. Today, I put together a holiday gift guide for her, all under $100. I hope it’s useful, whether you’re shopping for your girlfriend, sister, friend, wife etc…
For my first holiday gift guide, I thought I’d stick with what I know and love. These are items I own and really like. If you’re looking for gift ideas for yourself or someone else, hopefully this list will help!
Leather weekender bag, $398 // This was a Christmas gift last year. I use it every trip – it’s the perfect size for weekend getaways. I also love how it opens up like a vintage doctor’s bag. The leather has gotten softer and it’s been a little dinged over time, but that just makes it better in my mind. Always get compliments when traveling with this.
Patagonia vest, $99 // I recently bought this vest and have already worn it a lot. It great for layering in the fall and early winter. Will last forever.
Needlepoint card wallet, $55 // I use this thin wallet every day. It holds about 7 cards and a few bills, which is perfect for me. The front has leather pockets for cards, the back is needlepoint and it pops open at the top to store cash.
KJP braided belt, $88 // I wore this pretty much all summer. Was surprised at how soft the leather was. Bonus: it’s made in the USA.
Warby Parker sunglasses, $95 // After testing out 5 for free at home, these were my favorite. The lenses are polarized and are great for driving on really sunny days.
