‘Twas the Night Before Valentine’s Day

‘Twas the night before Valentine’s Day……are you scurrying to find the perfect gift this year? We’ve got some great suggestions (*that we’ve tried out and love!)  for you that you can still bring your sweetheart for a fun surprise.


Both men and women love surprises and ProFlowers  wants to change the idea that getting flowers on Valentine’s Day is just a tradition  for women.  Truth is, everyone wants to feel loved and special and you can find fantastic gifts for anyone and everyone in a one-stop shop.  I love the Hugs and Kisses Valentine’s Day arrangement that just so happens to be paired with a decadent box of six fancy strawberries from Shari’s Berries. Win-win for everyone, right? I’m not a huge fan of roses, so I love that this cheerful bouquet is loaded with blue irises and red tulips, the perfect arrangement for men and women to enjoy when walking in a room.

But if flowers aren’t your guy’s favorite thing, there are tons of other options on their site.  Plants, flowers, decadent treats, and more can be found and a gift from them can show that Chivalry is Shared and you can find something amazing for anyone you want to feel extra special tomorrow and every other day.

We are loving the great sporty options of eyewear from NikeVision to keep our eyes shielded from harmful UV rays and bright sun or snow glare.

I love the flattering shape around the eyes.  You will want to pick up your own pair, trust me!

For men, the Nike Bandit (shown here in Matte Dark Anthracite/White) is a great choice for someone who is active.  These are perfect for exercising due to their light profile and ventilation, not to mention they look fantastic on.  This would make a great gift for your favorite guy that spends anytime outdoors.

No better way to get your heart pumping than by exercising.  I’ll admit I do not love exercising, but I do love listening to great tunes to pass the time while I am working out.  That’s what makes it tolerable and somewhat enjoyable.  I am absolutely loving the Jabra Sport Pace wireless ear buds to use while on the treadmill.  The sound quality is fantastic and I no longer have to deal with accidentally grabbing the cord for my old wired headphones and ripping them out or throwing my cell phone off the machine mid-workout.  Instead these sit comfortably on my ears and wrap around the back of my neck, out-of-the-way.  Now all I have to worry about is blasting my favorite music and getting those miles behind me.  That’s definitely something I love!

clarinsI am loving the  gorgeous hues of red, pink and purple from Clarins this Valentine’s Day. Check out this 4-Colour eyeshadow palette in Lovely Rose.  Long last and versatile, you can create stunning looks using the colors either dry or wet for a more intense look. I love the quality of Clarins, their products are smooth and rich.

I am not a huge fan of lipstick, but I do love lip balm.  Have the best of both worlds, though, with Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector.  These tinted lip balms hydrate your lips and add a splash of light color that will enhance your lips.  The perfect addition to those beautifully done eyes!

I love personalized gifts, but I don’t love the hassle that can easily come with trying to create your own gift.  I love simple and high quality.  If it takes too long, it’s not likely that I will want to go through the process.  Well, MyPhoto had this in mind, apparently, because they have simplified the process of creating unique photo gifts.  So simple, in fact, all you have to do is email your favorite photo from your phone or computer to 123@myphoto.com and they will instantly email it back to you featured on all their products.  The hard part only comes when you have to pick which product you love the most.  Seriously, you can have an incredible gift created in minutes with very little effort on your part.  Once you order is placed, a quick turnaround delivers an awesome gift to your (or someone else’s) doorstep that will be cherished for years to come.  I loved trying out their services and products for myself.  I especially love their Moderna Metal prints and Atrium Acrylic prints.  They are products you don’t see often but will certainly make a bold statement.  Rest assured that this is a great company to do business with, their customer service is excellent!


swiss army for herWant to smell amazing?  We love Victorinox Swiss Army perfumes for both men and women. Check out the Swiss Army for Her Eau de Toilette, a classic, floral scent for the modern woman that knows what she wants.  This is a must-have fragrance that lifts spirits, energizing her for the day.  ♥️

swiss army unlimited

A great signature scent for men is Swiss Army Unlimited Eau de Toilette.  As hard as it can be to purchase fragrances for someone else, or to order online, Swiss Army is always a safe choice.  Their scents are timeless and unforgettable.  I love this scent in particular because it very masculine and clean, not too heavy. It’s a scent you want to keep smelling all day.


personalized Yankee Candle

Yankee Candles are a staple in my home and also gift giving repertoire.  They just can’t be beat for their high quality scents.  But, sometimes you want to give a little more.  Maybe you want to gift something that shows a fun memory in addition to an awesome candle.  I got to try out the coolest service that Yankee Candle offers both online and in stores.  You can personalize your very own candle.  Pick the size, the scent, and then add your own personal photo and message. It was very quick and easy to do, also fun to create.  The end product comes out perfectly and very professional looking. It’s a great combination gift that will be thoroughly enjoyed!
