Valentine Gift Guide for Him & Her

Just when you thought the holidays were over, nope! Valentine's Day is around the corner! Nine days, to be exact. So, while you're scrambling to find just the right gift for a romantic loved one or even a wonderfully special friend, let me share some of my top picks with you!

When it comes to gift giving, I like to not only be practical, but also think seasonly. Winter will be phasing out soon, so what are gifts that will transition into Spring?

Help your girlfriend transition her skin, fashion or home into the spring with some of these items.

New pillows and throw blankets for her home are always great gift.

I have recently fallen in love with the natural cosmetic brand SUGAR. They have the best lip moisture tints. This set of their top colors is a perfect gift. Help her, prep her skin for the change in seasons, or for your date night out with the Watermelon Facial Moisturizer. Trust me the smell is divine!

Whether your girlfriend is into tea, coffee or flavored water we all appreciate a modern canister. Black or white with a rose gold accents, take your pick.

And some stylish earring are never a bad idea.

Now onto the gents! Let's repeat the practicality and class. Help your gent get ready in the morning, smell nice and be on time. I love this Fossil watch classic and understated. Let your boyfriend or hubby travel to work in style with this top zip travel (laptop) bag.

In the event that he crosses a few sun rays during his outing he'll be prepared with these trendy sunglasses by Warby Parker. I especially love Warby Parker's brand. It's a interracial, multi-generational glassware line paving the way for affordable prescription and non-prescription glasses. I'm a big fan, I think you'll be too!

Nothing says HELLO like a nice smelling man. When in doubt of which cologne will smell best, try purchasing a sample set. That way he can determine which is his favorite and purchase the larger version when ready.

Lastly, a Unisex Valentine's gift. If you or someone you know are planning to tackle a design project in their home, send them a 2 Hour Design Consultation with a designer as a gift. Get a professional opinion and start your design project off on the right foot.

These are all thoughtful gifts sure to leave your loved one feeling, looking and even smelling special!

Hopefully I've made the stress of buying the "perfect" gift a little easier on you.

Happy early Valentine's to you and your loved ones. Oh yeah, and Happy early Birthday to me. That's right, I'm a valentines baby!
