Good morning. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine felt like it flew by. I spent Friday night with my boyfriend. We made some pizza (goat cheese on pizza is amazing – why haven’t I thought of that before?) and watched the second Lord of the Rings movie, The Two Towers. On Saturday I got a bunch of homework and blog stuff done. Then Sunday I did some stuff around the house and volunteered in the afternoon.
Today I thought I’d share a Valentine’s Day gift guide since Valentine’s Day is coming up next week. All of the items in my guide are $50 or less, so it’s perfect for people like me who are on a budget. I love useful gifts that I can use. Seeing them reminds me of the person who gave them to me. It’s a great reminder of the people that I care about.
Nail polish: $15 at Macy’s // Earings: $40 at Fred Meyer Jewelers // Phone case: $25 at Velvet Caviar // Bath bomb: $5 at Lush // Socks: $16 at Modalist // Mitts: $28 at Nic+Zoe // Water bottle: $46 at Bloomingdale’s
Although I don’t wear nail polish nearly as much as I used to, it always feels good to take a little time to pamper myself. The same goes with the bath bomb. Taking some time to myself always feels indulgent. Cute socks are the best, so when I saw these red and white heart socks I knew I wanted to add them to the gift guide. Since it’s still winter and cold here in Calgary in February these cute mitts would be something I would use every day. I take my water bottle every day with me to school, so this red S’well bottle would be perfect to stay hydrated during classes. While I’m not a coffee drinker, I do like to like hot chocolates and apple ciders. Having a cute travel mug to take them with me makes my day a little more fun.
Some of my favorite Valentine’s days have been low key ones. Dinner in is probably my favorite. I think it’s easy to get caught up in the hype, but as long as I’m with my boyfriend I’m happy. Last Valentine’s day I got some delicious chocolates from Bernard Callebaut. It’s a local chocolate shop that has amazing chocolates.
How do you like to celebrate Valentine’s Day? What’s the best Valentine’s Day gift you’ve received?
