Fannie May chocolates make a great gift for your sweetheart. Always so many delicious treats to choose from, you can’t go wrong. We recommend the Fannie May Colonial assortment so you get a bit of everything, pixies, Trinidads, buttercreams and many more all wrapped up in a giftable heart shaped box.

Flowers are always a great choice for Valentine’s, but truth be told, it’s even better when you gift a flowering plant. It lasts so much longer. We are loving the Lipstick Pink Hibiscus plant from Park Seed. These tropical blossoms are truly stunning as they bloom, lighting up the room. The petals are so delicate and pretty, she will love seeing this gorgeous plant each day. I am so impressed with the quality of their plants and know you will be, too!

You can find delicate pieces like their Jackie O. inspired Classic earrings, necklaces like the Vail, perfect for layering, statement pieces like their Lucinda earrings (just the perfect color for Valentine’s Day) or vintage earrings like their 2023 Valentine’s Day Limited Edition hearts. I love their Soiree Sparkle Necklace for the perfect pop of color. You can’t go wrong with whatever you choose from Holly Yashi, as their jewelry is beautiful and enjoyed by all!

I adore the products you can find at Papier. Personalized notebooks, journals, planners, menu planners, personalized stationery, pens and more. I love the idea of gifting a personalized journal to put pen to paper and express your feelings and emotions. There are so many patterns and styles to choose from, it may be hard to select just one. You can even select a bundle. Either way, Papier is my favorite retailer for gorgeous, high quality journals. Nothing beats a highly personal gift!

Speaking of personalized, create your own Valentine’s Day Gift by going to Mixbook! Have a bunch of shared memories you’d like to showcase? Create your own photo book. Personalize it in every single aspect, add your own text and pictures and before you know it, you’ll have a one of a kind creation that will be cherished for years to come. I am always amazed at how great their photo books turn out once they are printed and delivered. If making a photo book is more of an undertaking than you’d like to do (although it is easy to do and doesn’t take much time), I highly recommend opting for a photo gift instead. Gift your favorite someone special a memento. I love making acrylic photo gifts. Simply select a photograph you love and Mixbook does all the hard work for you. A photo of my husband and I from one of my favorite trips together will last forever in the beautiful acrylic print I created with the help of Mixbook. This 14″ x 11″ print is gorgeous and ready to hang when it arrives, no frame needed. You can even opt for smaller acrylic blocks–perfect for displaying in home or on your desk. I am always thrilled with the quality of my personalized gifts from Mixbook.

We are absolutely in love with The Carolina Jumpsuit in Fuchsia from sustainable and fair trade brand La Peony. Each stylish piece of clothing worn from them ensures that Oaxaca women earn a fair wage to support their families and keep the rich cultural traditions of textile weaving alive and well. What’s not to love about that?! The fuchsia color is absolutely stunning for this time of year, but we know you will love these jumpsuits so much that you will want one in Olivine….and black….and cream! You can dress up or dress down this amazingly comfortable jumpsuit, making it the perfect addition to your wardrobe.

We are in love with the incredible skin care available from Dermafirm. Finding products that make your skin glow and look amazing feels next to impossible, but this Korean skin care company definitely knows what they are doing. Pick up their Ultra Soothing R4 , Moist Barrier M4, or Age Reviving A4 systems for whatever problem area you have. Their three step system will help you achieve your skin care goals. Relying on the most advanced technology, Dermafirm’s proprietary, cutting-edge formulas feature three key building blocks – peptides, microbiomes, and liposomes – designed to effectively deliver powerful nutrients for optimal skin health. The products are incredible and you will instantly fall in love!

Another personal gift that is perfect for Valentine’s Day is a brand new fragrance for your favorite guy or gal. FragranceNet.Com is my go-to for all fragrance. You can always find the latest and greatest, classic scents, and tons of other accessories there for a fraction of the cost. I can always trust that what I purchase from them is high quality and it arrives very quickly. They even give great gift suggestions, if you are stumped. I recommend Tiffany & Love for her and him, Polo Blue or Polo Black. There are literally hundreds of perfumes and colognes to choose from, there is a scent perfect for everyone. They even have an incredible selection of cosmetics and haircare–Sexy Hair, anyone?

I love Cotopaxi clothing for everyday, outdoor adventures and traveling. They are the perfect clothing to take with you on the go because they are high performing, yet light weight and packable, easy to take with you in your luggage or backpack. They make traveling a breeze. So, if your Valentine loves to travel and go on adventures, I highly recommend you pick out some great gifts from Cotopaxi. Their signature colorful style is fun and wears so nicely. They are easy to wash and care for, too, which is an important feature in travel. I love, love, love their women’s Fuego down vest in Raspberry (a very fun color for the holiday and spring). Their men’s Teca Fleece Vest comes in multiple colors and is also perfect for in-between seasons. The ultimate travel piece for both men and women is the Viento Travel Jacket. These jackets are stretchy and move with you everywhere you find yourself adventuring. Even better, when not in use, they fold up easily into a pocket.

Public Rec is a company I was recently introduced to and honestly don’t know how I got through without knowing them. Their clothes are incredible and the ultimate in comfort. I adore their All Day Joggers and have stocked my closet with them because they are the greatest! But, they also have adorable dresses for women, amazing Workday Pant 2.0 for men (they are seriously the best! Perfect for work or going out on a date), and they are loaded with wonderful accessories, like their Adapt Belt Bag–you will want one and you will take it everywhere! No matter what you choose, your Valentine will absolutely love anything from Public Rec!
Love tea? Then we have the ultimate gift for you. Vahdam India x Emily in Paris Tea Entourage Collection is an exquisite assortment of teas inspired by the hit series. Packaged in a fun vintage suitcase, the gift set is loaded with delicious teas. Find these spectacular teas inside: La Vie En Rose, Ingénue Violet, Voila! Vanilla, and Le French Earl Grey. You can’t go wrong with this lovely gift!

Cooking a special dinner for your Valentine?

Want to make a special dinner for your Valentine? Then I can’t recommend cookware from Chantal enough. This is my favorite cookware, hands down. I adore their cast iron products, such as their 4 quart cast-iron skillet. Perfect for searing steaks and a multitude of other uses, this high quality pan is something that gets the job done and looks great while doing it. Available in a variety of stunning colors, you can pick just the right color for your kitchen. Beyond a lovely, romantic dinner, this piece of kitchen equipment will execute endless meals to enjoy with your loved ones. I also love their induction 5 quart chef’s pan to cook risotto, chicken, and fish.This versatile pan made of Japanese steel goes from the oven to the stove to the table. It’s safe to use in the dishwasher, too. Perfect for day to day use. Be sure to pick up some of Chantal’s utensils to serve up your incredible meal, as well. After trying them, I want to replace all my utensils with theirs!
Ok, now that you have the perfect equipment to cook your meal, you’re ready to go! You just have to decide what to make in it. Cooking isn’t your strong suit? It can be! With some practice and the right meals, you can get those skills honed in no time. If cooking isn’t something you’ve had a lot of experience with, I love the idea of selecting some meals from Blue Apron. Blue Apron makes the entire process a breeze. Go to their site, select some meals to be delivered to you and all you have to do is wait for them to arrive. Gorgeous and delicious meals will be ready to be prepared when you are ready to go. You won’t have the hassle of selecting a menu, grocery shopping, or anything. They will arrive, perfectly portioned and cold, with your recipe card and step by step instructions on how to create the perfect meal. They have a wide array of dinners you can choose from, including some special Valentine’s Day ones. It’s fun to prepare on your own or together, and you end up feeling like a master chef when you taste the fruits of your labor. Highly recommend!
For dessert, check out Red Velvet, a New York based dessert kit company, available on FreshDirect. Choose a Valentine Linzer Cookie Kit or a delectable Brownies with Salted Caramel Kit (or both for two totally different desserts). They arrive with everything you need to make yummy treats that everyone in the family will love. We loved making ours as a family, creating an experience instead of just a dessert. These were very easy to use and follow and would be fun to do together on a date, or with your kids, if you didn’t just want to make them on your own.
I love the gorgeous cocktail glasses from Caskata to add a special touch to a romantic dinner. The Celia Rose and Mocha Cocktail glasses are absolutely stunning and add the best ambiance to any dinner place setting. No matter what you put in your glass (I’m a sparkling apple cider kind of gal) it is sure to add just the perfect touch to every special occasion. Be sure to peruse their website for all their gorgeous glassware, too!
