Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Affordable Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Does your significant other need some ideas for your Valentine’s Day gift? Or maybe you’re just looking for a reason to treat yourself??? I’ve rounded up my (mostly) affordable Valentine’s Day gift guide for fashionistas.

1. New Balance 24 Sneaker

I’ve had my eye on a new pair of tennis shoes, and these are adorable!  I’m loving the blush/millennial pink color, but they also come in cream. They’re only $65.

2. Kendra Scott Aragon Statement Earrings + 3. Kendra Scott Inez Long Pendant Necklace

These pieces are from the new Kendra Scott spring line.  The blush color is so romantic, and will pair well with almost anything.  If blush isn’t your thing, they also come in several other colors, including abalone shell.

4. Quilted Camera Bag

I’ve been carrying this bag for the last several weeks in black, but the hot pink shade is great for Valentine’s Day and beyond. It’s an awesome designer dupe that I’ve been pleased with, and it’s under $50.

5. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Backstage Bambi

Need a new lip color for spring?! This is it!  The shade is a vibrant hot/neon pink that pops. The formula is a little dry but it lasts on your lips for quite awhile.

6. Jo Malone Wood Sage + Sea Salt Cologne

This perfume has become my signature scent here lately.  It’s refreshing but also distinguishable. If you’ve been looking to switch up your scent game, then this is definitely one to try!

7. Too Faced White Peach Eye Shadow Palette

Am I the only one that wants a new eye shadow palette every season? The shades in this one are nice for Valentine’s Day and spring, but there’s also a couple of darker shades you can use to take your look from day to night.

8. Kate Spade Initial Pendant

Chauncey is an AWESOME gift giver.  He picked this out as part of my birthday gift over a year ago, and I have worn it almost every day since.  I love the length of it, and it layers well with many other pieces.

9. BP Round Sunglasses

Another designer dupe alert!  At only $14, these shades bring pack a serious style punch.

10. Express Strappy Sandal

I’m all about pastels right now, and these lilac sandals are no exception. They will pair well with your favorite dress or your favorite jeans!

11. OPI Nail Polish in Lisbon Wants Moor

This shade is so pretty!  It’s a neutral with a touch of pink.

12. Apple Watch (Series 3)

Chauncey really is an AWESOME gift giver! I had mentioned to him that I was going to get an Apple Watch before the baby arrives, and he surprised me with one for Christmas!  I love that it’s hands-free. It’s been good for getting me to put my phone down, too, instead of always having it in my hands. You can also get the cellular version that allows you to take calls, etc. while your phone isn’t nearby. Let me know if anyone’s interested in a full review of this watch, and I’ll either do a blog post or Instagram story.

13. Freshly Picked Diaper Bag

This is #1 at the top of my wishlist right now!!! I decided that this time around, I HAVE to have a backpack for my baby bag–I hate when the over-the-shoulder or crossbody ones slip off while you’re also trying to hold a baby. Freshly Picked just released new colors (in addition to the classic colors from their initial launch lat fall). I’m eyeing this birch color, but it also comes in a pretty blush color as well.

What do you have you eye on?  You can totally send this post to your significant other for gift ideas!
