Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her!

Shopping for a significant other for Valentine’s Day or other holidays can be pretty stressful. I don’t know about you, but I always want to make sure I get the perfect gift for that person. My husband is the same way. He is always saying how hard I am to shop for…mainly because I really don’t want anything. With his work schedule keeping him from home a lot, the main thing I ever want is time…more time with him (awww…I know. How sweet!). To help him and you guys out, I have put together a list of great Valentine’s Day gifts you can pick up for that special lady in your life. Most can be to you in two days with Amazon Prime! Bonus!

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her!

If your significant other likes to read, then the best gift you could ever get her is a Kindle. They are affordable and come in a few different options. I personally have the Kindle PaperwhiteValentine's day gifts. I love it. It stays charged for weeks and I use it for a few hours every single day!

Kindle also has the Kindle VoyageValentine's day gifts that is supposed to stay charged even longer than the Paperwhite! Pretty cool! If you get a Kindle, you need to sign up for Kindle Unlimited. It is, by far, the best thing I’ve ever signed up for. It’s well worth the monthly charge.

If you are more of a traditionalist and want to get your loved one jewelry for Valentine’s Day, then these diamond stud earrings with screw backs (a must…trust me…a must) are beautiful and a great deal! My husband got me a pair two Christmas’s ago and they are my most favorite piece of jewelry, besides my wedding rings!

Chocolate! Valentine’s Day gifts have to include chocolate! Whether you get Chocolate Dipped Oreo CookiesValentine's Day gifts or a box of chocolates, your significant other will absolutely love it! If you really want to wow her on Valentine’s Day, then you need to get her this 2′ x 3′ box of chocolates!!

If you’re still stumped on what to get, then think about her favorite stores. Gift cards are always a favorite gift of mine! I don’t like to spend money on myself, but if I have a gift card, that’s a different story!

What gift idea would you add to this list?


Valentine’s Day Crafts Round-Up

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I don’t know about your family, but ours love that holiday! My daughter gets excited about the Valentine’s she gets to hand out to her classmates. My son is in middle school, so like most middle school kids, I’m sure he will want to get something for a girl, even if they are just friends. I think it’s pretty sweet. Besides writing out Valentine’s, my daughter also enjoys making Valentine’s Day crafts. So in honor of my daughter, I put together this round-up of Valentine’s Day crafts that are easy and fun!

Each of these crafts are very different and have varying degrees of difficulty. However, with that said, I am pretty sure my daughter (10 years old) could make each and every one of these crafts!

Bottle Flipping Craze with Flippin’ Awesome

Are your kids flipping bottles and pretty much everything they get in their hands like mine are? My son is OBSESSED with bottle flipping. I will say, it does drive me completely nuts. Mainly because he does it at times that are not really a good time. For instance, we will be running late in the morning and my son will have a few minutes before he has to walk out the door for the bus. I will ask him to bring me his bottle of medicine. What does he do? He grabs it and starts flipping it and won’t hand it over until he has flipped it at least three times. That drives me crazy! If your kids are into this bottle flipping craze as much as mine are, then you will want to get the book, Flippin’ Awesome by Sarah Doughty!

I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this post. All opinions are 100% my own.

About the Bottle Flipping Craze

If you haven’t heard of the bottle flipping craze that has and still is sweeping the nation, then you’ve been living under a rock! It started in 2016 with people posting videos of them flipping full or partially full bottles of water on the internet. As you can imagine, middle school kids and really any age kid, across the nation began attempting the to flip anything they got their hands on. And I do have to admit, while it is pretty annoying to here bottles hitting the ground repeatedly, over and over and over again, it is rather addicting. Especially when I want to show up my kids!

With the Flippin’ Awesomebottle flipping book, your children will master new tricks and flips to wow their friends! This book is filled with twelve target games for great head-to-head competition and fun! Your children (or you!) will learn new tricks and techniques that are sure to wow your friends! You get:

  • Winning techniques for landing each and every flip
  • 12 ready to play, fold out target games
  • Tear away score cards to track your stats and your wins

Doesn’t this sound like something your kids will like?

Personalized Books for Kids

Reading is a HUGE hobby of mine. I read every single chance I get. In fact, I set a reading goal for myself this year of 50 books. I ended up crushing that goal. I am in the middle of my 72nd book! My favorite thing is when one of my kids wants to read a book that I grew up reading and loved. So, as you can imagine, I absolutely love giving books as gifts. Especially if they are personalized books for kids! What kid wouldn’t want to read a story that they were in?!? Not only do they get excited that they are in the book, but they get excited about reading! It’s a total win-win! Put Me in the Story has a lot of different books for different ages and they are the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!

*I received a personalize book for the purpose of this post. All opinions are 100% my own*

Throughout the story my nephew is repeatedly told not to push the button. Of course, when a kid is told not to push the button, the first thing they want to do is push it! I can’t wait to read this book with him at Christmas!
