Valentine's Day Gift Ideas: For You.

Thursday, February 6, 2014

In keeping with what's become tradition on this blog, a few ideas for treating yourself on Valentine's Day. Instead of diamonds, why not wings? Instead of wine, tea?  In place of flowers, how about stained glass feathers or a perfume that smells like ghosts and roses? In lieu of lace, painted cotton?  (I obviously can't get enough of these.)

A personal favorite among this set: a little gray book called Dangerous Women, which features found photography commemorating mischievous girls. I like it as an alternative to a love poem.
Clockwise, from top left: Stained glass feather, $120; Wing earrings, $61.98; Striped britches, $36; Brushstroke mug, $26; Ghost Rose solid perfume, $34; Dangerous Women, $18.

Other ideas, no wallet necessary: write, paint, cook, wander. Plant a tree, make a fort, eat cookies for breakfast. Dance. Sing. Play hide-and-seek. Whatever you do, have a happy one.

You always put together the best gift guides, whether they be for others or for oneself! I see thyme and sea salt chocolate chunk cookies in my future...

That stained glass feather is beyond amazing, I keep looking at it lovingly - maybe by doing so it will come into my possession :P

Thanks for sharing! As my first valentines day being married to my best friend we are looking forward to it. We may be able to (in your words) make a fort and eat cookies for breakfast throughout the day. Anything to make the day fun and memorable. Happy Valentines day.
