My Top 3 Valentine’s Gift Suggestions
By Laura Carson Miller
Valentines Day is coming my friends and whether you look forward to it or greet it with a yawn, whether you spend it with your significant other or with friends or by yourself – hey, there is nothing wrong with loving your own company – it’s always nice to give and/or receive a little treat.
Here are my top 3 suggestions for Val Day gifts that will be met with a smile:
Michael De Feo for J. Crew Painted Tulips t-shirt – Flowers are kind of a given on Valentine’s Day, and as much as I appreciate a good bloom, quite frankly a bit of a bore. Be a hero and give the gift of flowers on this cool t-shirt that will be enjoyed waaaaay past the life of a flower bouquet. You or your receipient can rock this with jeans, a skirt or shorts. It would also look fab with skinny black pants, black heels and a long black cashmere cardigan. Show off simple diamond studs with a messy bun a la Olivia Palermo.
Rose Lip Balm by AERIN – Again with the flower theme and again with a present that embraces a lovely rose scent without being actual roses. Do you see what I did there? How cute is the gold topped pot, perfect to pull out at the table after brunch with the girls or post double dinner date? Not only is the packaging supreme and the subtle pink shade a dream, it actually treats your lips with Viamerine, an organic derivative of Sunflower, to boot! Beauty tip: You can use this as blush – and you should – on Valentine’s Day and beyond.
Sweet Treats from Corner Café – For those of you in Atlanta and surrounding areas, you owe it to yourself and your Val Day loved ones to get in on the splendid cookie treats from locally owned and operated Corner Café. They always have THE BEST cookies for every single holiday and Valentine’s is no accception. With festive colors and cute sayings such as ‘Text Me’ and ‘I Love You to the Moon and Back’ these visually pleasing and delicious tasting cookies will surely be a huge hit. Chocolates are yummy but super predictable. Get the Corner Café cookies. Trust me! To place an order, drop by or call Corner Cafe at (404) 240 – 1978.
However you play it, I hope you enjoy a Val Day filled with love!
