Happy Monday, everyone! Today starts the last week of January, and the internet has already exploded with Valentine's Day madness. J and I aren't big celebrators of this day, mostly because we have several other "more important" holidays that follow close behind (birthdays and our anniversary, I mean). Because we'll be so far apart this year, and because he'll be coming to visit for his birthday/spring break in a month or so, J and I have decided to save our money and energy and not celebrate at all this year (not including a phone call or Skype chat, I'm sure). Nonetheless, it's hard not to love all the red and pink gorgeousness floating around the stores lately, so I've put together a few (budget-friendly) suggestions for gifts for the ladies. And yes, buying yourself a gift for Valentine's Day totally counts. Enjoy! (:
Hello! It's a chilly day here in Texas, perfect for starting to think about the holidays! I always like to get a head start on gift shopping, and by now I'm already starting to make my lists. So to help give you some ideas about what to give (or what to put on your own wishlist), the lovely Lexi from Basically Bubbly and I decided to swap ideas! We each came up with a few items we'd love to find under our trees. When you're done, check out what I'm wishing for. Here are a few of her favorite things (that are now a few of my favorites too)!
From Lexi @ Basically Bubbly -
J. Crew "I Love You" tee "Because those words aren't said enough"
Michael Kors "Selma" tote "So I can give my Dooney & Bourke a rest"
Kate Spade glitter coasters "To add just a touch of sparkle"
Boyfriend by Kate Walsh solid perfume "Just the right size to go everywhere with me, plus the smell is yummy"
Reiko Kaneko gold "Lip Tease" mug "Perfect for sipping hot cocoa on those chilly winter nights"

Madewell mini-bow ring "For subtle bling"
