his & hers valentine’s gifts

his & hers valentine's gifts


Valentine’s Day is tricky for guys. What do you buy them? Do they really want anything? Do they care? If you’re dating my boyfriend the answer to all of the above is “no”. So what do I do? I’m sneaky about it. This adorable candle holder can double as a catch-all once the candle burns out. These his & her mugs from Jonathan Adler are really cute, and not too “gifty”. Also, this Banana Republic cologne and perfume is so perfect. We’ve been wearing it for weeks and I love it. Better than that? He didn’t even know it was his Valentine’s Day gift.

And as a special treat, I’m over on Drew’s blog today sharing some things that I cannot live without (hint: one lives in my kitchen).

    We don’t really celebrate except for making each other a card with some sappy stuff written inside!

    My boyfriend is the same way…I decided to get him old school punk band t-shirts so it was a gift but he just thought I was awesome and got him new clothes. lol!

    I love those mugs!! Maybe I’ll sneak them into our cabinets!

    If I don’t get to comment tomorrow Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your boyfriend! =)

    I think I’ve been leaving the laptop open to too many blog-curated V-day gift guides, b/c my husband asked worriedly, “Gifts for Valentine’s Day? Is that a thing?” We do cards and dinner and adventures, and I think he thought he’d been missing something essential for the last however many years.

    LOVE those mugs!!! Guys don’t give a shit about valentines day. Mine only wants me to bake him treats. I got him a boardgame he wanted (NERD ALERT) and some beer. But really…I want those mugs.

    That BR fragrance is iconic in my book. It used to be one of my faves back in high school — thanks for putting it back on my radar (I can STILL remember what it smells like!)
