When I think back on my wedding day, it was the best moment ever, next to our first Valentine’s Day together. Valentine’s Day has a special way of bringing people together. As I share my wedding photos above, those picture perfect moments in time remind me of why it still matters to celebrate this holiday after all this time together. Exchanging a card or surprising each other with small tokens means more than the gift itself. Gifts show a recognition of love and loyalty. With every gift comes a memory that will endure, while creating new moments you can cherish forever.
Valentine’s Day Gifts for Women
Show that you cherish your moments together with a thoughtful photo gift. Design a photo album based on a special memory. One beautiful pick is the Hudson 3 photo album from Kolo, which comes in a vibrant, festive red. I tried this album out, and I was very impressed with its quality. The hard cover felt sturdy, and it was made with a soft fabric material.
In the album, you can fit 300 4X6 photos. Create an album that has a specific theme, such as holidays you’ve spent together, special memories, or travels. Because this item is so thoughtful, it would be very impressive. To add a special, handmade touch, you could print your photos on the Canon PIXMA MG7720 printer. I’ve been using it for a while now, and I love the photo quality. The printer was simple to get set up, and there was great customer service to help during the process.
Women adore a good pair of shoes. One of my new favorite pairs of shoes are from Nene shoes. The Emma flats in pink and taupe are festively colored for the holiday. I rarely wear pink, but these shoes are flattering and fun. Both of my daughters own a pair, so we can match when we go out together. I found the fit to be precise and comfortable. Usually, I wear a half size, but half a size up fit just right.
Although sweaters might not be a traditional Valentine’s Day gift, the symbolism of giving the gift of warmth is sure to be appreciated. One of my favorite styles would be oversized sweaters, meant to be worn loose. These make great gifts. Check out the BLK+BLU Midwest cardigan. This item can be worn casually off the shoulder with layers that can fit any occasion. I tried the cardigan out, and I found that the item fits very well and was incredibly comfortable. The cardigan is nice enough to wear with a dress or a skirt, and it would go well with jeans. With the recent cold weather, something warm to wear will be a thoughtful present. Starting Sunday, you can get a discount on all Valentine’s Day styles using the promo code LOVE30, or use THERESA20 for 20% off starting immediately.
Items for the house can make thoughtful gifts. When purchasing a home item as a gift for a woman, select a luxury item or something meaningful, rather than anything practical. For a creative woman, choose something artistic. From the company Classic Hostess, you could buy the Inspired Generations Lady Figure with Heart Tray sculpture. Since I studied sculpture in college, I liked that this sculpture added some of my personality to the home decor. Although I don’t have time to pursue creative endeavors anymore, this item reminds me of the fun I had majoring in art for a short bit of time.
Another thoughtful gift idea for the home is a personalized lamp. Check out Light Affection for unique photo gifts. You can turn a photo into a lamp she can treasure for years to come. This is a breathtaking way to treasure a moment. Choose a wedding photo, an old Valentine’s day photo, or a recent, meaningful photo. Visit my Instagram page to see the lamp that I customized. The lamp has excellent quality, is made well, and functions as promised.
Searching for a sweet gift? Give a Conversation Hearts Valentine Sweets Tower from 1-800-Baskets. Chocolate is a traditional, classic gift. This gift will be sure to make her smile, especially with the messages on the sides of the cubes. In the first box, I was delighted to find dark chocolate truffles. I’ve never had truffles so delicious! The next box had chocolate covered graham crackers that tasted sophisticated and fun. There were also a few other classic sweets from Lindt Lindor and Ghirardelli.
Now, after sampling so many wonderful Valentine’s Day gifts, I look forward to spending the evening without worrying about what to buy or what to do. That’s the positive thing about being a blogger, you celebrate holidays a month in advance. It’s hard to feel let down on Valentine’s Day when you’ve spent the past month, opening Valentine’s gifts and sharing them with your loved ones.
What do I really want on Valentine’s Day, now that I’ve got everything I wanted? Viv, the owner of Style Cite, says it best to me. All she wants for Valentine’s Day is quality together time, and so many women would agree. Viv says she most hopes for, “Just us and our thoughts and feelings, together in one space.” I love it, and I hope for the same.
