His & Hers Gift Guide for Valentine’s Day (or any special occasion)

January 16, 2013

Let’s just say once you’re well into a relationship gifting starts to get a bit harder for Valentine’s Day, or any occasion, but I realize it doesn’t always have to be so complicated (or expensive!).  Here are some simple and affordable gifts that you can give for a good laugh, a day to relax, or a way to say I love you.

1. Customizable Collar Stays, NiciLaskin, $12
I think these are such a great gift to personalize.  Sometimes personalizing/engraving things can get cheesy, but I think these have just the right sentiment and subtly.

2. Bath Bombs, Lush, $5 and up
What girl doesn’t like to relax and lay in the tub?  Guys may never admit it, but I’m sure they’ll use you as an excuse to use one of these too!

3. You Are My Queen / You Are My King Letterpress Cards, Lisa Congdon for Hello!Lucky, $4.50 ea.
I fell in love with these cards when they were released.  You can write your letters and then frame them!

4. Knock Knock Notepads, Knock Knock, $6 and up
I always seem to gravitate towards these to read at the store, some of them are so funny to read and I’m sure even more funny to fill out.

5. Cucumber Mint Gumball Candle, Mine Design, $22 (cheaper at Urban Outfitters)
Candles never fail, and this candle’s packaging doubles as something pretty to look at / display in your home.

6. Heart Mugs, West Elm, $8
I think surrounding yourself with pretty things is a mood booster, even if it’s a mug sitting on your desk, and you can fill these up with miscellaneous goodies like their favorite candy or little trinkets.
