Valentine’s Day is coming upon us very soon! Each year it seems to be harder than the last to come up with a thoughtful gift that shows my man how much I care. I imagine it’s the same for him. While I do love the customary heart shaped box of chocolates as much as the next person, sometimes it seems a little bit like our gift giving is on auto pilot. It’s nice to change things up a little bit. After browsing around the RedEnvelope site for almost three hours this evening, I believe they can help anyone kick their Valentine’s Day up a notch or two!
RedEnvelope.com offers a huge assortment of unique and fun gift ideas for so many occasions. RedEnvelope is surprisingly affordable too, they offer high quality gifts for all price ranges, including many very nice gifts under $50! I found myself looking at everything from snowball blaster guns for the kids to Father’s day gift ideas. This is when I snapped myself back to the cold reality that it is not June. It’s barely February, and I need a Valentine’s Day gift! More browsing, and some hard decision making ensued!
My first thought was to get something different for Super G. that he would really appreciate. There were many possibilities to consider. Would he most like something that is more romantic like a sizzling romantic board game or a sexy strawberries and champagne kama sutra kit… hmmm.
Or maybe a tasty treat of 6 Hand-Dipped Valentine’s Berries or the adorable 10 Reasons I Love You Truffle Box…
How about a nice functional gift that could be used everyday like this stylish leather watch case with a monogrammed plate? Or even this really cool recycled billfold wallet, it’s made out of old billboard signs and rubber bike inner tubes! How neat!
Any of these would be a perfect present. Then I thought maybe I would just get myself something instead. It’s always easier to shop for yourself! There are so many beautiful items for women on RedEnvelope, and if I’m going to be totally honest, I almost said the heck with it and bought myself a gorgeous personalized Mom’s Flower Garden Necklace! What stopped me? they didn’t have a flower for my daughter’s birth month of October available :(
In the end I decided that I should probably find something that both Super Genius and I could enjoy together. So…. because I am sitting here freezing to death, and because it’s STILL snowing outside, and while Punxsutawney Phil says spring is on its way soon, I don’t believe him… I bought these.
I bought us both the men’s version and I cannot wait to snuggle up with my honey wearing my flappy butted his and hers long johns pajamas :) Plus, I think they will make Super G. smile, and the kids will surely have a laughing attack when they see mom and dad sporting this stylish look. What about you? What are you thinking of getting your special someone this year?
