With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and with a few more Prime days left to shop, I thought it would be a good idea to break from the usual posts to give you some tips on some incredible gift ideas. Whenever I receive an email or a question about a gift, these are always on the top of my list as suggestions. I promise these are things that she actually wants!
Since I started using my Dyson hairdryer, I not only have smoother hair, I also cut my time by 25 minutes. This blowdryer is seriously like nothing else. I love that it helps me dry then style my hair without needing to use any other tools. I know it’s pricey, but you’ll only need to buy this once! An extra 25 minutes a day means you can get a 20-minute workout in and still have time to wash and dry your hair!
I promise this isn’t a Dyson sponsored post, but I do have a few of their products. This one too looks much like the blowdryer, but it is more of a styler. I use mine instead of a curling iron to create curls in my hair. I can also use it to blowdry my hair straight and add a little flip or wave at the ends. All without using a curling iron, you ask…YES! It is super simple to use, and because I no longer need a curling iron to curl my hair, I have cut out around 15 minutes of time on those days that I’m looking for a little more than just straight hair. I find it easier to travel with the Airwrap too!
This next one is tricky. I caution you to only buy this if your valentine is already exercising. Otherwise, as life would have it, you may start a fight. She might think you’re implying that she needs to start working out. Goofy, I know. If a girlfriend gave me a yoga mat out of the blue, I would be ecstatic, but if I had gotten this from my husband and I was not already doing yoga, there would be trouble! Since I do already do yoga, I was beyond excited to receive this mat. I love the pattern, and it’s way cuter than the ugly blue starter mats.
I know this might sound like a stretch, but the next gift is sooooo worth every penny. If your valentine likes to get a massage, I highly recommend getting her a massage subscription. I go to Massage Envy once a month, and on a good month, I go twice! I’ve been going for five years now, and I can’t emphasize enough how amazing it is to know that I have a massage to look forward to each month. It’s incredible for your health too!
If you read my post on my trip to Sedona, you’ll remember my big affection for my new jacket. This gift depends on location, but here in the midwest, you need a great coat. I know Sedona hardly seems like a place where one would need a nice warm jacket, but when we visited last month, it was 39 degrees!!!! I have a long winter coat, but what I wanted was a shorter coat that I could hike in. This coat was a lifesaver, and as a bonus, it has shoulder straps so you can wear it as a backpack if you get too warm.
The last gift is the one that I use just as much as the hairdryer, if not more, I love my Tumi backpack. I have traveled a ton with this bag. It has pockets in all the right places, a strap to keep it safely perched on top of my carry on, and it’s light & roomy! I use it as an everyday bag too. After my masseuse told me that it’s not good to carry so much weight on one shoulder, I started investigating the best alternatives.
I have loved and used the above gifts daily, and I couldn’t be happier with them! For whatever reason receiving flowers has never been that exciting to me. Maybe I’m too practical, but I always think about the money spent and the fact that the flowers will die in just a few days. Is that horrible? I’ll give my mom credit for that…she would always tell us NOT to buy flowers. Anywhooo…if she’s a flower kind of girl, then you have it easy. If not, then ONE flower with any of the above gifts would undoubtedly make her day!
Here’s a link to some interesting Valentine’s Day trivia. If you celebrate with a special someone or even just a friend, I hope you have a great day! And just in case you don’t want to run out and buy a card, here’s a free one for you to print. Works best if printed at 50%, cut and write your message on the backside.
