This Valentine’s Day, I’m forgetting all your typical cupid kitsch and going with (mostly) practical choices that I hope will bring joy, comfort, or some utility into your home/relationship.
But don’t forget that the best present one can receive on Valentine’s Day is the gift of quality time. Pencil in a date night and lock away your cell phones for a few hours; you won’t regret it!
1 – Godiva Chocolatier Classic Gold Ballotin Chocolate — There are no calories in chocolate on Valentine’s Day, right?
3 – Studded Brass Flower Vase — I love brass vases. They’re heavy and provide a nice contrast to any flower arrangement in any season.
4 – Pure Colour Satin Kimono — This elegant little kimono is warm in the winter and breathes easy in the summer.
5 – Women’s Menton Leather Moto Jacket — I’m a huge fan of black leather jackets, and last spring, I wanted a jacket that I felt comfortable wearing to work. This white moto zip-up nailed it.
6 – Kate Spade Wilson Road Bradley Backpack — This stylish little black bag is perfect for day traveling.
7 – Leff Analog Alarm Clock — This handsome analog bedroom alarm clock was designed in Amsterdam and features high-quality, silent movement components.
8 – Cupcakes & Cashmere Marled Knit Jacket — It’s great if you want to look totally pro with the zipped look, but this cozy piece of outwear also has an amazing casual look to it when you let the zipper down.
9 – KitchenAid Professional Series Stand Mixer — Whether you love to bake or she does, this timeless mixer remains one of the essential tools of the American home.
10 – LED Vanity Mirror — A choice tool for aspiring makeup mavens everywhere.
11 – Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Milk Bath Soak — Any gift that encourages more baths is a good gift.
12 – Modern Deer at Night w/ Brown Frame — Because it’s adorable and every Pennsylvania home needs a deer portrait. Great for a modern or rustic vibe.
