7 Valentine's Day gifts

Valentine's Day is just over a week away, so if you're looking for some treats, here are seven ideas...Silk flowers to look pretty on a desk all year, $20 to $24.
Wildflower candle to make your home smell like spring, $30.
Heart cheese that tastes like buttery Brie, $15.99. (They also have chocolate cheese!)
X-O temporary tattoo, $5.30, or sparkly heart temporary tattoo, $5, to wear all day.
Sexy silk lingerie, $130.
Love-etched bottle to use for water every night (or lemonade in the summer). $24.
Morse code necklace or bracelet, saying "amore" or "love," $80.

P.S. A kissing tip from Joan Rivers, and the #1 trick to make a date night sexier.

All so beautiful and creative... we never really do gifts for Valentine's day but these have me tempted! And suggestions for creative gifts for a special guy? :)

Laura Bear said...

What fantastic ideas. I just love starting my morning with your blog. And super excited about your pregnancy, as I am preggers with my first, so your helpful posts are always reassuring. Thanks for the great read!

Lovely gifts, however all I want for Valentine's Day this year is being able to sleep in past 6am (my 15-month old is an early to bed, early to rise kind of guy and still nurses in the morning).

The morse code necklaces are cute and secretive! I always shake my head at those chain jeweler commercials that show the guys getting girls generic heart-shaped sparkly fill-in-the-blanks.

Lulu Frost makes code jewelry too, and she also does numbers and letters, so it would be cute to pick out stacking rings with numbers that marked a special date or something along those lines.

A story from a friend:

" It occurred to me that while I think I have much wisdom to impart about love, I can learn from a twenty-something. A Valentine's Day present is not a half-dozen blushing roses; not a heart-shaped ganache to cap a carefully planned, meticulously prepared dinner; not a compilation of favorite love tunes; not a lavender-scented massage; not a hi-how-are-you phone call or email or txt. It is all that, blended, distilled, and gift-wrapped in words, to be unwrapped and relished anew on any February-fourteenth of the year. Words that instantly recall the unshakable your-annoying-quirks-are-why-I-love-you bond."

the rest of the story is here:

I love February :-) and your blog :-)

Sigh, these are delightful gifts. Hope to share some handmade love with my littles this heart day but am definitely thinking of something lovely for my main man.xxoo

thea said...

Hmmmm I'm busily marketing Spoonful 8 as a valentine gift. Papery soulful flowers ;) I know it's not usual but then - isn't it fun doing the UNusual? I reckon it'd be interesting to hear people's unusual valentines... there are some grand romantics out there - sigh... is it naughty that I figured that yummo popcorn would make a grand romantic gesture? hehehe Am I a lazy pregnant woman? Probably...

thea.

If it weren't for this list, I would never have found out a cheese chocolate exists! My partner is french, we live in France and he loves both. Never knew this existed! Hope they ship to Europe but doubt it!

Rachel Bowie said...

I love the heart cheese from Murray's! What a sweet—and delicious!—idea. Thanks for this list Joanna!

Natasha said...

Love the cheese! I'll try to cut a piece of gouda in hearts! :)

Good idea!

Oh my gosh heart shaped cheese is quite possibly the best thing I have ever seen.

If my boyfriend doesn't buy it for me, I'm going to be highly disappointed.

Oh my goodness, those tattoos! I am in giddy love with them. They are so very adorable. I now plan on chasing my other half around the house with a marker until he lets me kiss him with an X. What a lovely list of ideas.
