My Complete Valentine’s Day Gift Guide – 34 Gifts For Her, Him, and the Kids!

Omg!! Valentine’s Day is coming up and while it might be a silly made up Hallmark holiday to some, I still love it, celebrate it, and make my hubby buy me a gift every passing year. Ha! Ok, I buy him Valentine’s Day gifts too because I’m a loving wife who embraces the love-filled holidays to their fullest. And as if that wasn’t enough, we fully embrace Vday with the kids as well! They get lots of cute gifts from the grandparents and we eat lots of chocolate and candy hearts {which I think are gross and taste like chalk but to each their own!}

With that, I have curated an epic list of Valentine’s day gifts for her, him and the kids! If you’re not in a relationship, have no fear, because any of the gifts for her would make awesome Galentine’s presents too! Okay, let’s not delay this any longer!! Check out my complete Valentine’s Day gift guide below!

Here’s the deets to these awesome gifts!

1. Tula Rose Glow & Get It Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm: This is the new version of the Tula eye balm that I’m totally obsessed with. Apparently it gives a rose glow sheen with that same cooling feeling to touch. Who doesn’t want that?

2. Relax Roller: Give this to your best mama friend. She’ll love you forever and forever. Roll it on before bed or whenever you need a moment of relaxation. Ahhhh.

3. Pure Silk Skinny Hair Tie Rose Gold Holiday Bauble: Gentle on hair + designed to reduce those annoying ridges caused by regular hair scrunchies. Sign me up!

4. Heart Sweater + Shorts: This sweater + shorts combo is exactly something I’d put on the second I got home from anywhere! Plus, the HEARTS!!!!!!

10. Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer in Fuchsia/Iron: This will forever be on my gift list because I will never buy it for myself. With that said, it’s the best of the best… fast drying, prevents extreme heat damage, light weight and easy to hold. People are OBSESSED.

11. Always Pan: My favorite purchase of 2020… the only stove-top pan you’ll ever need that is designed to replace 8 traditional pieces of cookware. They just came out with this new limited edition red hot color and I am in loveeeeee. {by the way: it’s in stock currently + comes with the Bamboo steamer and cooking chopsticks BUT it will sell out, and I’m sure sooner than later!}

12. Ugg Slippers: The only slippers you’ll ever want to slip your feetsies into. I’ve had mine for years, they last forever and then when you do wear them out, you’ll be running to the store the next day to replace them! Adore this red/pink color combo for Vday!
