V-Day Treats

With a cute new puppy and a cute new husband I am just full of love these days :) Valentine's Day is just a few days away and I am looking forward to celebrating! This is our first V-Day as a married couple and I can't wait to see what Ram has up his sleeve.

There is something really nice about a day dedicated to celebrating love - no matter who you are or who you love! I made this little roundup of things that have caught my eye lately... feel free to send it onto your Valentine for ideas - hint hint! And if you are still looking for a the perfect gift for someone - your mom, your sister, your BFF - you're gonna love this list. Plus, the best part is they're ALL under $75! 

vday

ONE: I happen to LOVE patterned tights - nothing is cuter with a cocktail dress! I own polka dots and leopard print, but I'm thinking a pair of tights with hearts could make my Valentine's Day ensemble even cuter. Only $18!

TWO: A day-planner may seem to be a strange gift, but I own this Moleskine planner and I LOVE MINE. If you have a friend who is always scatter-brained, buy her one of these - they're 30% off right now, making them $12! My planner keeps me organized and I love how slim and light it is - I can throw it in any bag and be good to go!

THREE: "I Freaking Love You." Enough said! This mug is $13 and would make me laugh every time I used it.

FOUR: I am obsessed with these colors of these tassel bracelets - I want every single one! For $26, you could get someone a couple of them... magenta, coral, and tangerine would make a great V-Day stack! 

FIVE: These stacking heart bowls ($36) were actually on my Hanukkah wish-list... I would love to display all my bracelets and jewels in them on my dresser. I'm partial to pink, of course, but they also come in navy and a beautiful pale blue.

SIX: I love anything with a lipstick print. This little makeup bag is only $20 - stuff it with your favorite nail polishes and lipglosses and you've got a fabulous gift.

SEVEN: I am a huge fan of giving pictures frames as gifts - it's something everyone loves and can use in their homes, and it's even cuter if you take the time to print out a photo of you and the recipient and slip it into the frame. We actually registered for a few of these Michael Aram heart frames ($69) and put wedding photos in them - they're all around our house and I just love the fun, bold heart design.

EIGHT: In my opinion, Kendra Scott makes the best colorful earrings out there - I have like a dozen pairs. Every season, she comes out with new colors and new shapes - I have these drop earrings ($55) in turquoise but I'm thinking the magenta may need to join my collection!

NINE: Know any newlyweds? This Mr. & Mrs. dishtowel duo ($42 for two) would be the cutest gift for their first V-Day!

TEN: This is one of those quirky little gifts that I would personally love to get. It's a "Love Letter Tray" from West Elm, currently on sale for $12 - for that price you could buy one for everyone you love! 

ELEVEN: This heart-printed duffel bag could not be any cuter. It's the perfect size for an overnight or weekend get-away! I happen to already have a little duffel with hearts, but if I didn't, I'd snap this up in one second flat. I was also really surprised by the price - I think $54 for a bag this big is super reasonable!
