Valentine’s Gift Guide | For Her

Valentine’s is around the corner and sometimes the person who deserves the most love in our life is not the type Valentine’s Day ad. Often this love shows a man buying his woman flowers, chocolates, candies, gifts, and if she is lucky… anything from Nordstrom

Who said that Valentines is just for his-and-hers though?! The women in our lives need some love too! You know who I am talking about, your friend who went through a bad break-up, your co-worker who makes your days at work bearable, or your mom/gma/sister/aunt/cousin, just because you love them. They are all worthy of a new dress, handbag, beauty products, or anything else on this gift guide (more options, here)!

Good friends and family are hard to come by, it is never too late to show the women in your life how much you love and appreciate them!


Valentine’s Gift Guide | The Traveling Guy

Screen shot 2015-01-13 at 8.33.26 PM

I am going to be real honest in this post. I love my boyfriend but I hate shopping for him. I remember the first few holidays when we were together and I had so much fun picking out presents for him. Now, 3 years and 20ish presents later… I am out of ideas! The guy really has everything. Typically I go through the internet looking for something that pertains to his hobbies or lifestyle and something will magically appear (hours and sometimes days later)… so I am going to save y’all the pain that I know many of you have. I know I cannot be the only one who struggles!

I went through the internet this time with a different approach and picked out 12 of my favorite items for the guy who travels.

These headphones are stylish and completely drown out noise. Perfect for early Monday flights or late evening flights! I picked this pair of sunglasses because my boyfriend always tries to steal mine. I have a similar style but this particular pair has been designed to be travel proof. They fold up into about 1/4th the size of normal sunnies- making them easy to stow away in a pocket (even in the case)! If you are looking for a more affordable option, this pair of sunglasses is the exact same style but cannot fold to be compact like the first pair. I even found it 20% off for y’all! This Andrew Stewart throw is perfect for the traveling guy. It is easy to put in the front pocket of a carry on, and they can use it their entire trip!

These are all practical things that I know your honey will love and actually use. Whether they jet set across the globe for business, or road trip for pleasure, these are all great options! Click through the item list below to check out my picks!

This red coat has been with me for quite some time, and it isn’t going anywhere soon.

Coat shopping can be so hard- a constant decision between what is a want, and what will I actually wear?

If you’re undecided, get a pop of red.

Now is the best time to buy coats because they are on super sale! Here is a link to some fabulous picks. And let’s be (brutally) honest, hot weather is not around the corner.

If you follow along with Mr. Groundhog, spring is a good 6 weeks away, and even then… spring isn’t the warmest of times. So while your mind may be saying- get the maxi dress, get the coat. You will actually use it tomorrow, the next day, and for the next few months.
