7 Mind blowing Valentine’s Day Gifts

Okay guys, we’re coming up on a very important gift giving holiday. It’s called Valentine’s Day. Now some of you may say, “We really don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day anymore, we’ve been together for years.” Well, I’m here to tell you, even if you’ve been married for a week or thirty years, a romantic holiday should ALWAYS include presents!

There are many types of gifts out there, some more expensive than others, and some more dependable than others. Years ago, I would have given my husband the death stare if he bought me an Instant Pot for Valentine’s Day, but I’ve changed and so have the times. I’ve been a huge advocate of the IP for many years. Those who follow me know I have had several versions and recommend them all. I think it’s an amazing gift, so if you didn’t get one for your birthday or Christmas, there’s another holiday coming up!

You don’t have to spend a fortune to put a smile on a person’s face. I’ve included a variety of price points on my list.

Pandora Bracelet
Can any one resist a Pandora Charm Bracelet? I’ve had one for years, and I love receiving charms for various different occasions.
Jane Basch Designs Sideways Block Initial Pendant Necklace
I love the quirkiness and fun of this necklace. Available at Nordstrom.
Tiffany Silver Heart Tag Bracelet
There are many different versions of this classic bracelet, available at various price points. I have had my Tiffany bracelet and necklace for over twenty years and I still love it!
Longchamp Le Pilage Handbag
I love this bag. I have one in black, but you’ll need red for Valentine’s Day. This bag is so versatile. It’s light and fashionable. You can add a felt frame to the inside or leave it empty. Trust me, you will have fun with this tote.
Instant Pot
I’ve raved about this kitchen appliance for years and will continue to do so. I think IP needs to be a staple in all households, it just makes life a little easier.
Chanel Red Wallet
Classic fun and of course red! There are vintage versions available on sites such as Poshmark or Tradsey. I also have my eye on the YSL, but I don’t want to seem greedy.
Tiffany Leather Wrap Bracelet
I’m infatuated with wrap bracelets, especially one in Tiffany blue! I love the classic trendiness and fun of this bracelet.

Put the FAKE BAG down!

Lately I’ve been obsessed with fake designer bags. I’ve always been superficial (I’ll admit it). Even if I had the best looking designer imposter, (one even an expert would have to scrutinize), I would still know. I would not be able to strut around as confidently if my Gucci “G’s” were upside down. I watched […]

Why The Ugly Truth Will Set You Free

When Target introduced their designer lines for Target (i.e. Lilly Pulitzer for Target), I should have been excited. I love designer clothes and handbags; I love Target but…. Designers for Target? In my mind, these are two great things that should never be paired. In the 80’s, Jordache Jeans were hot commodities. If you weren’t […]

A Brutally Honest Letter to Parents

Dear Parents, Teachers and staff do not want to call you and report negative information about your student unless they have literally and figuratively tried everything to work with your child. When a teacher calls you, they expect your full support, not an argument or justification on why it’s okay to hit another student or […]

Call me a monster, call me shallow but I’m getting my list together…just in case my husband wants […]

The Lack of Diversity in the Influencer Market

Happy New Year! I took a little family vacation and was literally killed the first three weeks of December, trying to meet a sales goal at work. You’re probably thinking, but I thought she’s a high school principal? I am, but that’s another blog post all together. This evening I’m here to talk about something […]

Anyone Else Off The Wagon?

I confess, I’m off the wagon right now. I can feel my stomach getting ripe and juicy and I want to cry but in some ways I really don’t care. It’s the holidays, and I know it’s not an excuse but my mother-in-law just made homemade chocolate candies, stuffed with creamy peanut butter. Yes, not […]

Help! My Body Has Betrayed Me!

Have you ever felt like your body is betraying you? I know I have just turned fifty (have you heard?), but my body began doing things on its own around thirty-five. I’ve had five kids; I shouldn’t complain but the first four times I bounced back pretty easily. I ate what I wanted, although I […]
