Can you believe it’s already time for Valentine’s Day? I’m really excited about our plans but more on that later next week. Trevor and I aren’t really ‘gift’ people. It’s more so me, I always get mad at him if he buys me anything and usually just ask for a card with a long note in it. He would much rather buy me a gift than pen me a letter, so I’m sure this annoys him????

In the beginning of our relationship we did the gift thing for holidays, birthday’s, etc but now I enjoy a dinner in or date night out more than a gift. That may also have something to do with the fact that I run this blog and find myself purging more than collecting. However, I love getting gifts for Trevor! He rarely spends money on himself (besides a watch every now and then…) and I always like seeing him use things I’ve picked out for him. I thought I would round up a few things I think would be a great gift this holiday and feel free to share anything you’ve found that you thought went over well too! 

As far as guys, I think personalized is always a great way to go! Etsy has so many great small shops to browse and I loved these travel bags. They’re currently on sale, you can monogram them and I love the colors. I also thought these cufflinks were adorable and perfect for weddings! If you want to go the more clothing friendly route, I included two things I’ve recently bought Trevor that he loves. This pair of sweatpant joggers (love both colors but I got him the grey) and these sneakers. If you haven’t heard of Allbirds, they are an amazing company and I got the whole family shoes from there. You don’t have to wear socks with them if you don’t want and I think they look so great as a casual shoe you can dress up or down. 

For the ladies, I tried to choose things I have and love. Herbivore is a favorite skincare brand that is all clean and natural. If your partner happens to be into that, their whole line is impeccable and you can’t really go wrong. These heels are my most worn pair (in the nude color) and they have so many options you are sure to find something you know she will like! I also should say, I don’t usually wear or use a lot of pink but this new muted shade of blush is giving me life. This cosmetic case and slip on’s are so cute and perfect for spring which we all hope is around the corner.
