5 Simple Valentine's gift ideas

We don’t make a huge fuss in our house over Valentine’s day but we do love to spend the day loving on each other. Nothing to show your love more than a little treasure right?! This week I threw together some sweet things for my closest girlfriends and played Cupid with special deliveries to each of them. Here are some simple yet thoughtful fun ideas for anyone you want to love on on Valentine’s day!

  1. Special floral delivery- toss together a simple bouquet from Trader Joes super pretty flower selection ( you know you are already there at some point this week anyway, so you can grab a little bundle) Tie up the flowers and greenery with a cute ribbon and note. Deliver the bundles to your loved ones or friends in person and don’t tell them you are coming.

  2. Write a list of your top 10 favorite things about them and leave them a note or a text to share.

3. Bring them their fave coffee with a little love note written on it. Or put a gift card for coffee in an empty travel cup like this cute idea from Handmade Modern Home.


4. Tie a balloon to their car at school pick up or for your hubby before he leaves for work. No one can resist a smile when they find a surprise balloon.

5. This adorable nail polish goodie from Tomkat studios is just too precious! You can never have enough red nail polish too.


Best Valentine's gift for him or her

Valentine gifts

Erik and I aren't really big gift givers so Valentine's gifts are really nonexistent most of the time. I always love time together or a simple dinner at home with the girls.   I know Vday is usually splashed with jewelry and flowers. I  have never been  a huge jewelry person and really love simple classic pieces that are timeless and have some meaning.  Now give me some chocolates and we are talking another story.  

Valentine gift

 When I came across this Jord watch I fell in love immediately. I planned to give it to my hubby as a little surprise for Vday but the wood watch was just too gorgeous that I stole it for myself.   I loved it's classic frame and nautical feel with the wood frame.  You know I live for that timeless, coastal feel.  The design is so unique yet still feels lux.  The part that stole my heart is the watch personalization option.  I had it enscribed with my favorite verse.  Jeremiah 29: 11.  I know this is a very popular verse but it bears repeating.  "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  So good right?!  I chose this message because I feel like time moves so fast.  We all find ourselves rushing through our time, hurriedly to the next thing on our to do list.  Worrying about having enough time with our babies before they grow older.  Spending quality time wiht our spouses.  My whole life revolves around time and how to best lay it out each day.  Such a silly thing to fret about when God already knows our plans.  He has our whole life planned and all for good.  It's my favorite reminder to relinquish my stress about time and let God take it.

I feel like this is the perfect gift not only for your spouse but for yourself if you are single!  The styles are unisex and are so versatile.
