Hello and welcome back!
I don’t know about you, but I am growing more and more excited for Valentine’s Day and because we have just one week left, I thought it would be a good idea to showcase some really special and thoughtful gifts that will be sure to put a smile on your date’s face!
Generally, my feelings on Valentine’s Day fluctuate from year to year. There are years where I’m completely about it and I want to go all out, and then there are years where I’m completely nonchalant and am honestly content with eating a bowl of cereal with my boyfriend on the sofa and watching a Netflix show. That being said, this is not the year for cereal and reruns, this year I’m completely excited and ready for the gushiness!
I’m pretty sure that all of this excitement is coming from my blog as well. This time last year I wasn’t blogging so I wasn’t constantly reminded and counting down the days to V-Day, but either way, let’s get down to some of the most thoughtful gifts to give to your Valentine’s Day Date!
Tell them how you really feel with a LoveBook!
If you have never heard of LoveBook you are completely missing out! This is probably the sweetest little bookmaking company out there right now and they specialize in creating little fully customizable books for the special people in your life. I would say that the best part, other than the lovely and deeply personal messages, would be the illustrations, they all precious little stick figures and honestly, I can’t even! Just look at how cute Dillon and I are!!
The brand is mostly targeted to couples and presented as intimate and romantic tributes to significant others. However, they are so much more than just romance. You can create books for your best friend, your parents, even your favorite coworker if you are so inclined.
Since we are so close to Valentine’s and this is a completely customized book that has to be created, printed, bound and shipped, the deadline to get it by Valentine’s Day has passed, but I still think they are amazing and completely worth the wait! I was so completely moved by how much Dillon loved his book when he got it, I mean he stopped what he was doing and read every single page! I truly believe that this is the most thoughtful gift you can give to the person you love the most!
You can design your book and use this code VDAY19 for 20% off here!
For The Avid Reader…
Why get them one book when you can give them the gift of thousands! Amazon’s e-readers are frankly the best and when paired with a Prime Membership, your honey will have access to all kinds of incredible works of literature at amazing discounts, even free might I just add.
Amazon is having a pretty awesome sale on the kindle paperwhite for Valentine’s day right now and with their 2-day shipping, it will get to you right on time! It’s currently priced at $99.00 from $129.00 or if you want to make monthly payments, it’s $20.00 a month for 5 months. What a deal! Am I right?
I have the paperwhite and personally, I love it! It is super light and because the screen is made with glare-free technology, you can read it anywhere, even in the sun! The new ones are also now waterproof, I have the later edition and I am insanely jealous btw!
You can order it here on Amazon’s website!
For The Heartthrob That Loses Everything…
My boyfriend loses EVERYTHING! Okay, maybe not lose as in completely lost forever, but he definitely misplaces a lot of things and can never seem to find them. I’m sure I’m not the only one who is in love with someone who is plagued with this affliction.
If your significant other happens to always lose his or her things, you should definitely get them the Tile Pro. It is designed for both form and function. It is the size of a keychain and hooks on to anything, all they will need is their smartphone to make the Tile ring to find their keys, wallet, whatever. It also works vice versa if they’ve lost their phone, simply press the Tile and their phone will ring even when it’s on silent. I know amazing!
However, if they’ve managed to lose both the Tile and their phone, well then godspeed. You can order one or a few through Amazon here!
For Your Honey Who Loves Animals More Than People…
As a pet owner, there is no greatest fear than something terrible happening to your animal. We try to protect them from anything harmful and we microchip them so if they run away, there is a chance that we would be reunited.
For your significant other who holds their beloved dog or cat above all others, the Whistle 3 GPS and Activity Tracker is the perfect gift! It securely attaches to their collar and monitors everything, and I do mean everything. It monitors how long they rest, their low activity, when they walk, if they’re playing, how long they are engaged in high activity and where they are at any given time! Technology is amazing!
I actually have the Whistle Activity Tracker (no GPS sadly), I was randomly selected to try it out from a pool of Banfield Pet Hospital members. Once I received the email saying I was selected, I filled out my information and then a week and a half later I received two activity trackers, one for Rose and one for Harvey!
I’ve only had them for about a week, but my experience so far has been amazing. It really tracks everything and using the app on my phone, I can get a pretty good idea of what they are doing when I’m at work. I can only imagine what the ones with GPS can do!
You can get yours here on Whistle’s website.
I would like to add that I have not been paid nor am I in partnership with any of the brands listed above. Mostly everything that I am recommending I have purchased with my own money, with the exception of the pet trackers, I really was randomly selected and was honestly very skeptical at first by the email. I also do not own the Tile, although I am seriously considering purchasing it for Dillon. Cheers!
I honestly could keep this list going forever, but what are some other thoughtful gift ideas that I missed? Let us know in a comment below!
