February is finally here! So, today I am sharing a few Valentine’s Day gift ideas – all under $50 – for the ladies in your life. I also want to talk a little bit about the day before Valentine’s Day – Galentine’s Day! Unfortunately, we live in a world where it is totally normal for women to get really competitive, compare themselves to each other and put others down. Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day or both, this season is the perfect opportunity to spread kindness and lift up the ladies in our lives. I feel like so many of us can really use some extra TLC during the winter too. I came up with a fun challenge below that I hope you’ll take on with me!

Now, here are seventeen affordable Valentine’s Day gift ideas can be that little something to show them just how special you think they are. Of course, if you need to show yourself some love too, I won’t judge that at all! 😉

Gifts for Her

Another gift I love to give girlfriends, is a picture frame with a picture from a recent fun memory for you two. These can be such a lovely reminder of the strong and special friendships you have.

Don’t forget: there are also things you can do for each other or give someone, that don’t cost anything! Writing a little note to cheer up your friend or just texting them, “you’re awesome!” can go such a long way.

The Galentine’s Day Challenge:

However you decide to share the love this month, I challenge you to join me on Galentine’s Day, February 13th, by showing love to the ladies who mean the most to you.

Our friendships and relationships are one of if not the most valuable things in our lives. But sometimes we make the mistake of assuming that our friends and family know how we feel about them. We all need support and encouragement from each other, and it means so much when a girlfriend shows you that you matter – right?!

I would love to hear what you plan to do for your girlfriends. Do you have Galentine’s Day or Valentine’s Day plans, or both? What is your favorite Valentine’s Day gift to give or receive?

Cheers!

My Favorite Thing About Christmas

And just like that, Christmas is over! I’m always amazed at how quickly the holiday flies by. My holiday weekend was wonderful and included lots of quality time with family and friends. 

Last Friday, I did a secret santa gift exchange with a few of my closest girlfriends from high school. I love how we are always able to pick up right where we left off. I’m also super excited because one of them is moving back to DC.

On Christmas Eve, Will and I joined my family for our annual candlelight church service and dinner in DC. One of my favorite parts of Christmas Eve is singing Silent Night with a chapel full of candles and the lights dimmed. It’s just so peaceful and you can feel the happiness in the air.


Christmas Day began with stockings and presents with my family and our dogs in their Christmas PJs, of course! Then, we all gathered in the kitchen to cook a hearty brunch. After we ate, Will and I headed down to see his family in Richmond. We enjoyed an early dinner and presents exchange down there before coming back up to DC for the night. Will and I ended Christmas with exchanging our presents to each other. It was an action-packed day and I was very tired and the end, but it was SO lovely to have a day full of time with loved ones. That will always be my favorite thing about Christmas. It’s the things you can’t possibly put into words and the people who mean so much to me.

I’d love to hear how your Christmas was if you celebrated it or if you did something fun for the holiday weekend.

Cheers!

10 Last Minute Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Stockings are always one of my favorite parts of Christmas morning, and this is largely because my mom is so skilled at filling them up with a mix of candy, beauty products and small items that are just for us. Before any gifts are opened, my family always goes through the stockings one by one. It is a tradition I have always enjoyed and a fun way to kickoff the Christmas Day festivities together.

Since we have FIVE days until Christmas, I thought I’d share ten stocking stuffer ideas that you can easily get when you are in a time crunch. All the hyperlinks below will take you to products on Amazon. This way if you don’t have time to get to the store, you can choose two-day shipping and get your stocking stuffers delivered to your door before Christmas.

 

  1. Headphones, $8 — Am I the only one who is always loosing these? These Panasonic ones also come in eight different colors.
  2. Sunglasses, $10 — These Ray Ban knock offs are a steal at $10. Of course you can get fancy ones too.
  3. Cell Phone Camera Lens Kit, $20 — If you know someone who loves taking photos with their phone, they’ll love trying out these different lenses.
  4. Leather Luggage Tags, $9 — Perfect for any jetsetter, this pretty blue color will standout nicely on any luggage.
  5. Slotted Turner, $6 — Perfect for the cook in your family, this KitchenAid one is such a pretty color to add to your kitchen utensils.
  6. Portable Phone Charger, $13 — This is a gift that’s perfect for someone who travels regularly, or that person who is regularly glued to their phone! The black one on Amazon is regularly $40 but it is majorly discounted to $13.
  7. Kitchen Towel, $13 — This pineapple print is a fun way to brighten up the kitchen and put a smile on your face.
  8. Initial Key Chain, $5-$10 — Initially Yours on Amazon has every letter of the alphabet, and each is about $8 (no idea why some letters are cheaper than others!).
  9. Hand Cream, 2 for $15 — Winter can really dry out our skin, so this is something that is sure to be used. I like to keep one of these in my purse and at my desk.
  10. Bath Sponge, 3 for $8 —  These are great for anyone, but especially for those who enjoy relaxing in the shower or tub.

These items are great for a range of ages and personalities. I also tried to select practical gifts that will likely be used and enjoyed. Gift cards are also a fun extra item to add into stockings. I’d love to hear if you have any go-to stocking stuffers or family traditions with your stockings.

Cheers!
