Love is in the air!
I sincerely apologize for not getting this posted sooner, but I have been down for the count the past 3 days with the flu:( Thankfully I am on the mend and getting back to my normal self. I wanted to create a gift guide that not only included memorable gifts, but also experiences. Don’t stress about not celebrating on the actual day because it’s a-okay to celebrate BEFORE or AFTER the 14th, just make sure you communicate that with your significant other. No communication = big problems! My Mr. and I usually opt to celebrate either at home on the exact date or just choose another date later in the week that works better with our schedules. Do whatever works best for you, but never feel like a failure if you don’t do something that exact day!
Below you will find some of my top picks for him, her and experiences for both. Enjoy!
I have yet to meet a lady that didn’t love a great pair of shoes! Why not surprise your love with these unique black flats with feather adornment? All Josefina’s are handmade in Portugal so you are guaranteed to get a quality one of a kind product. Be sure to check out their site for more styles and personalization options:-)
I love finding different brands that you wouldn’t traditionally find in the department store, and Senreve is one of these brands. All of their bags are 100% made in Italy from genuine leather, come in a variety of colors and can be worn 4 different ways. The bag I have featured below is their mini-Maestra bag, but they also have various other styles including the larger version of this bag. I personally liked this one because it would make a great choice for date night or going out with the gals. I would definitely do a double take if I saw this beauty strolling past me on the street:-)
Are you both scent aficionados? Clive Christian took over one of the oldest British perfume houses and has crafted such unique scents such as these with the highest quality ingredients. Your lucky lady will be sure to stand apart from the crowd with a Clive Christian fragrance!
I love Bespoke Post’s slogan “Gift Boxes for Guys Who Give a Damn.” Does this sound like your guy? If so, keep reading! These aren’t like your typical subscription boxes where you keep getting a box every month, locked in for a year and usually getting products that you likely won’t even use. These boxes are $45.00/month and you have the option to browse it prior to having it sent out to you. If you don’t like your box, then simply pass on it that month and wait to see what next month has in store. My favorite part is that there are different categories available for your guy. I know my Mr. would love the Weekender box and the Alchemy box, shown below. Pssst ladies, you can even add a little something in the cart for yourself:-)
Why not treat your guy to a fresh shave and cut at The Cut Columbus? It will be something unexpected that in my opinion many gents don’t take advantage of. It’s a super easy option that your Mr. can use anytime and show up for your date night looking fresh!
Must love wine and spending time together:-) The historic Greenbrier hotel is hosting a Wine Weekend during President’s Day and will feature some of the best wineries in America. Don’t forget to indulge a little in their spa and see if you’ll hit it big in the casino!
Has your guy recently taken a liking to bourbon? Surprise him with a trip to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail! Obviously now isn’t an ideal time to go, but you take him out to a local restaurant or custom cocktail bar in Columbus and present him with the gift. If you don’t want to go out for dinner and drinks then carefully curate a bourbon themed package with a bottle and glasses.
