What do you usually do for Valentine's day? We always try to do something fun together that we wouldn't normally do, and we usually exchange a thoughtful gift or two- nothing extravagant, and make a meal together. Last week, however, my husband said he had something planned already (What?! This is the guy who rarely remembers any holidays), so I'm excited (and nervous) to see what's on the agenda. Just a few more weeks! In the meantime, here are some little gifts at all price points that I think are sweet, though maybe not totally romantic (car starter, I'm lookin' at you!).
1. Ono candle - I know most guys wouldn't be into a candle but this one, with its all natural ingredients, melts into massage oil, so I think it makes the cut. $12
2. LifeStraw - This is for the adventurous travel guy - the one who is gravitates off the beaten path. This thing will remove bacteria from the water instantly, making it completely safe to drink no matter where you are. $20
3. Remote car starter - Ok, I know this isn't the most romantic gift, but if you're in a cold weather climate, it's a thoughtful gift, because there's nothing inviting about climbing into a freezing cold car first thing in the morning. $44
4. Wireless headphones - Perfect for the guy who is equally serious about music and working out, and doesn't want any wires getting in the way. $150
5. Catchall - For the guy who is always misplacing his wallet, keys, and phone. $36
2. Non-toxic nail polish - It's pricey for nail polish, but it's a perfect little something for the girl who is into natural cosmetics. $17
3. Hair ties - I am always losing hair ties so these would make a simple, thoughtful gift. $7
4. Hanky Panky lace bra - These lacy bras are pretty and comfortable. $45
5. Evil eye bracelet - Always drawn to evil eye jewelry, I think this delicate bracelet is beautiful. $120
6. Sleep shirt - A soft, cozy sleep shirt is my favorite thing to put on after a hot bath at the end of the day. $19
