valentine's gift ideas...

so last week I guest-posted over at All in My Twenties about some Valentines DIY gift ideas, as promised - if you're not a DIYer, check out these "run out the store or order online" gift ideas... while I love making gifts, I do also LOVE buying gifts for others and feel that I am a pretty thoughtful, fun gift-giver that loves to check out lots of places for gifts - hope you all get some good ideas from these!

here are some cute fun valentines gift ideas...
"I'm nuts about you" Keyring - $20, uncommongoods: a great way to be mushy without being too over the top, I got this for DJ our first holiday season and it still makes me smile when I see it on his keys [I like to think he likes it too, but maybe he just humors me]

KaPow cufflinks (or other fun cufflinks, found at various shops on etsy) - $25, whitetruffle on etsy

if your beau is a whiskey drinker then maybe some whiskey stones - a distinguished way to serve your drinks on "the rocks," literally - $19.99 (for set of 9), winestuff.com

Map coasters from TheBluePrint (on Etsy) - they have a variety of locations all for $35, these could be fun if you've taken a trip together somewhere or they have coasters for a place that is significant to the "two of you"
(Florida)
(South Carolina)

Jack Black First Class Five Gift Set [great products and a nice travel case] - $49, sephora

a more practical gift rather than lovey-dovey... Code Wallet for iPhone - slim leather case that holds an iPhone and 3-6 cards (available in brown, white and black) - $50, shophex.com

a valentines gift for your special lady... or yourself... adorable bow ring... $35 from muyinmolly on etsy

looking for an easy way to scrapbook all of your favorite moments together, personalize this "ticket stub diary" with tickets from your favorite concerts, movies and sporting events that you've attended together! $10 from uncommongoods.com
roadtrip map poster - if you and your love have taken a roadtrip or have/had a long distance relationship this could be a great personalized gift -- $26 from JanuaryJonesPrints on etsy

if you don't have the will or time to make your own "love coupons" buy some love tokens, set of 10 for $16 from uncommongoods.com


that's all for now - less than a month 'til our favorite red and pink themed hallmark holiday, get to shopping!

I'd take that bow ring...as a reminder of how much he loves me. I'd even let him say I love you 3 less times a day ;)
