| Marilyn and Chanel No. 5 |
Love is in the air. Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away and I want to share my Ultimate Valentine’s Day Gift Guides 2017. Starting today, I will blog about a gift guide for her, on Tuesday I will feature a gift guide for him and on Wednesday it is all about those precious little ones!
There are several items in this guide that are personalized, so if you are leaning towards any of those items, please don’t hesitate to order soon to make sure they arrive in time. However, because Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday this year, you could buy yourself a little more time by making dinner plans for Saturday night and giving her a gift then. Just a thought.
Ultimate Valentine’s Day Gift Guides 2017 – Gifts for Her
| ADIDAS Women’s Superstar Casual Sneakers / $79.99 via Macy’s |
For the women on the move who wants to keep stylish. These kicks will make her feel like a Superstar. The touch of gold adds a little bling that elevates the wardrobe and makes them less like sneakers.
| lightweight travel robe offered in three colors / free monogramming / $129.00 via Mark & Graham |
Robes are so versatile. In the winter, I like keeping a robe at the foot of our bed to chase away the chill when I get out of bed in the morning. When my family travels and we all share a room, a robe like this is ideal to wear after a shower and while I am getting myself ready.
| just for fun, accent lights to personalize a room / white or wood base / $79.00 – $99.00 via Mark & Graham |
I fell in love with this accent light. It isn’t something that you’d buy for yourself and I think it makes a charming gift. You could say “You light up my life” in the card. Great gift for little ones too, it can be used as a night-light.
| 2 in 1 Cosmetic Kit in white or black / free monogramming / $99.00 via Mark & Graham |
Pretty and practical. In addition to the handsome design, this cosmetic case is big enough for week-long vacations. It comes with a smaller inner case that I think is so smart. If you have ever opened up your cosmetic case to a gooey spill, you’ll appreciate how important it is to separate lotions and potions from your makeup.
| leather tassel key chain comes in many fabulous colors / free monogramming / $49.00 via Mark & Graham |
I recently got one of these and I can’t believe how much easier it has been to find my keys. A bright, fun color (the green is amazing) makes it easy to spot in your handbag or on the last horizontal surface you left it.
| Chanel No. 5 Eau de Toilette 1.7 oz / perfect size for the handbag and traveling / $82.00 via Sephora |
A lighter, more relaxed version of the classic perfume. Made famous by Marilyn Monroe, this delicate yet sensual scent has been around for a long time because it’s that good and smells great on everyone. Eau de Toilette is less concentrated than perfume which means that she can use it with confidence and not worry about the intensity. My motto for applying fragrance is to do so lightly, it should only be detected when you are embracing someone.
| Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette / $29.00 via Macy’s |
Six naked matte neutrals to wear alone or build on. A great all around palette that will be used often. When Kerry and I first started dating, one of the gifts he gave to me at Christmas was cosmetics. He was commuting into the city and stopped by M.A.C. Cosmetics to buy me some makeup. He described by skin tone, hair and eye color to the sales person and came back with an assortment of makeup that suited me perfectly. Do not shy away from giving women makeup, perfume or clothes – we LOVE them!
| Hidden Figures / $9.59 via Amazon |
For the Bibliophile. Give her a book that should have been published a long time ago. The phenomenal true story of the black female mathematicians at NASA whose calculations helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space. Now a major motion picture. I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about the book and the movie. It is on my bucket list to see soon. Everyone I have spoken with about this movie says the same thing. “Why did it take so many years to hear about this incredible story?”
| BootayBag / a monthly subscription for two pairs of undies $12.00/month via BootayBag |
| Trio Love Knot Earrings in 14k Tri-Color Gold (9.5mm) / $175.00 via Blue Nile |
How perfect are “Love” Knot earrings on Valentine’s Day! These tri-color gold earrings simply go with everything.
See you tomorrow for the Ultimate Gift Guide for him!
