There are two types of girls on Valentine’s Day: the ones that want flowers to arrive at their desks & be wined and dined all night…and the ones that hate everything about the “holiday”. We tend to fall somewhere in the middle. It’s definitely nice to be thought of, but for us, Valentine’s Day is really just an excuse to cook a fancy meal in or make a reservation for dinner out the day after to avoid awkward dates & prix fixe menus. We are summer babies (Nick & David too!), so Valentine’s Day is also an excuse to exchange gifts between Christmas & our birthdays.
We’ve rounded up our favorite gifts for him & gifts for her this year! Nothing is too love focused, so feel free to gift to your friends too if you’re feeling generous.
Gifts for Him
Herschel Supply Co. ‘Novel’ Duffel Bag
Is it just us, or do most guys just use old backpacks or gym bags for a quick trip? This black & brown duffel bag is perfect for those weekend getaways and work trips, while remaining neutral and stylish.
MVMT Leather Watch
We’ve been seeing ads for MVMT all over Instagram, but knowing they sell at Nordstrom makes the brand that much more legit for us. This style with a dark leather band & brass watch face is so classy! We almost want one for ourselves.
CLIC Card iPhone Case
This classy leather iPhone case also has a pocket to carry your man’s credit card & ID. It’s perfect for the guy who always complains about carrying things in his pockets!
Bose SoundSport Headphones
These wireless headphones have awesome sound & are perfect for the guy on the go. They’re a bit pricey, so maybe save them for Christmas if you’re short on funds right now.
2(x)ist Union Suit
Okay, so this one is kind of a joke & play on men giving women lingerie for Valentine’s Day. Plus, it’d be pretty cute to see your man lounging around in this when you get home from a night out with the girls, right?
Gifts for Her
2ct. Earrings (cubic zirconia)
Our dad always joked that we should never accept anything less than 2cts., so we can’t help but smile when we look at these 2ct. precious metal earrings from Nordstrom! We LOVE the three prong gold detail!
WOLF ‘Caroline’ Jewelry Case
This pint-sized travel jewelry case is the perfect gift! We can’t tell you how many times we’ve gone on a trip or moved & when we get to our destination, our bracelets are tangled around our rings and so on. This case comes in so many cute colors & they’ve really thought of everything!
slip Pure Silk Eye Mask
B got one of these eye masks embroidered while at a beauty event for work in NYC & she loves it! It would be even more comfortable without embroidery, so we highly recommend this sleep mask! They make silk pillowcases (which are supposed to help prevent face wrinkles & lines) too, so we might have to indulge one of these days.
Diptyque Rose Delight Candle
It’s hard for Diptyque to do wrong. I don’t think there’s one scent that we haven’t liked & this packaging is so gorgeous that we don’t doubt it smells just as pretty too! Plus, it’s pink for Valentine’s Day!
Happy shopping!! & if you’re not in a relationship or the type to show your love by giving gifts, why not just treat yourself?
