I like Valentine’s Day, but I don’t love the gifts pushed on us by the commercial marketing machine. Please, no heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, red roses, or lingerie for me.
What I do like is a small thoughtful something that I can use and enjoy every day: a gift that says, “I know you, I know what you like, and I like you the way you are.” I especially love gifts that last far beyond Valentine’s Day and will bring my loved one to mind whenever I see them.
1. Valise leather journal, $14.95.
2. On Target necklace, $22.
3. White poppy vase. $20.
4. Scharffen Berger chocolate squares. $14.17/50
5. Infinity X Infinity diamond earrings, $99.
6. My Ideal Bookshelf. $14.95
If you have something to say to a friend or loved one, don’t find a greeting card to say it for you. Go with a handwritten message in a nice card. I like these.
Not sure what to get the man in your life? Try these ideas. (If I were you, I’d go with the pie. Definitely the pie.)
