Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day is approaching quickly and some guys have a problem narrowing down the perfect gift for their sweetheart. Well, I created a fool-proof guide if you need some ideas to impress your lady friend.

1. Pinterest

First and foremost, I recommend that you try and get access to her Pinterest account. Don’t be scared; it’s not all engagement rings and expensive shoes! Chances are, she has recently pinned a bracelet she likes, a cute knit sweater, or some dinner recipes to try out. This is a great way to see what she likes and surprise her with a very personal gift or date night. Pinterest is also a great place to browse even if you don’t have access to her account. She will be blown away if you give her a cute flower/card/candy DIY that you found and made especially for her!

 

2. Julie Ann Art Cards

The card aisle at a majority of the stores is especially vomit-worthy this time of year. If you don’t want to give your girl something too mushy or serious, try these cards. The one I pictured above is one of the more tame cards, and they are all absolutely hilarious!

 

3. Starbucks gift card

If you’re relationship is new and you don’t want to get something too serious, a gift card is perfect. It’s not super personal, but still thoughtful, and what girl doesn’t love coffee? Starbucks has these adorable ‘sweetheart’ themed gift cards right now that will get some extra points!

They are also hosting an event on February 13th called #StarbucksDate! Click here to find out more:  http://news.starbucks.com/news/starbucks-and-match-to-host-the-worlds-largest-date

4. Target Handbag

Target has been stepping up their game lately. Their swimwear line, shoes, and handbags have been ON POINT. Speaking of handbags, if you hate your girlfriend’s current purse, this is a great opportunity to get her one that you won’t hate holding for her when she asks you too. They have a variety of trendy colors, and best of all, they look a lot more expensive than they are.

5. Compartes Chocolatier

Every girl wants chocolate for Valentine’s Day. If she says she doesn’t, she’s lying. You don’t have to get her the life-sized chocolate bar that she will never eat in front of you, you can opt for something cuter and much more creative. That’s where Compartes comes in! They have super innovative flavor combos handcrafted in Los Angeles. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous and makes the perfect chocolate addition to any gift!

6. Ashley Brooke Designs ‘I Woke Up Like This’ Mug

If you’re girlfriend is as much of a coffee fiend as I am, these mugs are the perfect gift! They all come with cute sayings in bright colors. They even have his and hers mugs if you are at that level in your relationship.

7. Ban.do Thermal Mug

Again with the coffee theme, this tumbler is great for a girl on the go! I commute to work and stay for long hours, so this is perfect to always take with me when I need a mid-day pick-me-up (or two)… This online shop has a bunch of great gifts perfect for any girl!
