Below I have included links to additional gift idea that I love for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and you know what that means… flowers, candy, jewelry, and shinny gifts galore!  This year Justin and I have dinner reservations at one of our favorite restaurant’s here in Charlotte, Bentley’s on 27th.  Being engaged to my best friend make’s the holiday all the more special, and I am excited to spoil him with a few unexpected gifts.  Speaking of gifts, who doesn’t love being surprised on Valentine’s Day?  Above I have put together a gift guide that includes everything from home decor to shinny new accessories (and lets face it… what lady doesn’t love to new jewels?!).

For me, the best gifts are those that come unexpected.   They always mean so much more, especially when there is thought behind them.   Personally, one gift you can’t go wrong with is candles, and if you have never owned a diptyque candle then run to your nearest Nordstrom’s and pick one up.  You will thank me later!   Yes, these candles are an investment, but it is worth it.  Justin and I live in a town home and 20 minutes is about all it takes to fill our home with their beautiful aroma!

Another designer favorite that you can never go wrong with is the always girly, Kate Spade! I love anything adorned in heart shapes, and am swooning over her heart shape earrings and matching bracelet!  It reminds me a lot of the Cartier love bracelet in you put it on and take it off!  You will have to check it out!

If you have any fun gift ideas for guys please do share them! I am always looking for creative ways to show my love for him
