While you might not guess this from the visual components of post, I’m not the biggest Valentine’s Day fan out there. My reasoning is something along the lines of: why are you only supposed to go above and beyond to show your love for someone one day of the year? The other reason is because I really don’t like seeing so many people get down/sad because of this holiday. Holidays like these are supposed to be festive and fun! Also, does anyone get really really pissed that all the good restaurants only offer elaborate prix fix menus? Same issue that I have with NYE… I don’t want a prix fix menu! I just want to pick out my own food and not pay a small fortune for it. That’s why I think we’re sticking with ordering in.
Anyway, despite those sentiments, V-Day is a great time to spoil the girls or guy in your life with a little treat. This post is definitely for the ladies… how fun (and practical!) are these gifts? I’ve heard amazing things about Swell water bottles and would love to have one (keeps things both hot or cold), can’t go wrong with my go-to neutral nail polish, love the accent of my macaron trinket box, smile whenever I see the monogrammed acrylic pen holder on my desk at work, want to take these plastic wine utensils on a picnic, and don’t run much but think these socks would be a really nice treat for those who do. The reason this post has a “(sort of)” in the title is because it could just as easily be titled “Anytime Gifts to Give Your Girlfriends.” So indulge your friends and put a little smile on their face, if you’re looking for a creative way to celebrate the holiday!
