Yet again, here we are…approaching Valentine’s Day…
America goes crazy over it and with a good reason. I honestly like the premise of the day – remembering the relationships in your life – or even lack thereof. But I’m also for the cliché that, every day should be special when you’re with that special someone.
And every day should be national doughnut day #ftw
I reckon now’s a great time to start thinking about your relationships and deciding what gifts to get each other… Hell, it can even be your bestie – ain’t gotta be a lover. Whether you’re a Valentine’s Day aficionado or not, you can always use a gift guide. After all, it gets confusing rifling through the noise out there…
So, here are 2 different gift guides for the girls and boys in your life.
Getting gifts FOR HER is my specialty. Truth be told, I have it easy. It’s not to say that I don’t know how to handle the other side of the equation, but being a girl, makes it far easier to relate. You know the classics: lingerie, make-up, a pretty scarf, et al. But if you’re ready to go over the top, add a little more…a nice purse, a candle, or a fun print t-shirt. We love surprises! And be sure you’re paying attention to any tips she might’ve been hinting…

And if you really want to go outside the box, what about a one year subscription to Azalle? Now that’s real value money-can’t-buy!
Guys can sometimes be hard when it comes to gift giving. If he’s anything like my husband, he never needs/wants anything. It’s a nightmare finding something, but fortunately he always ends up liking it. The trick is to be thoughtful – maybe something unexpected. But there’s nothing wrong with sticking to the classics. We’re talking a great watch, a fancy pair of socks, even cologne. Tech isn’t a bad investment… maybe he needs a pair of headphones or a camera. A cashmere scarf always does the trick.
