For The Romantically Challanged Man

Valentine’s day is quickly approaching, and I bet there are some guys out there who are stressing out about what to get their special someone. It always seems so obvious and easy to think of dates and gift ideas, but for some reason guys just can never get it.

That’s why the ladies over at Man Crates have challenged me to create a mini wishlist to help the romantically challenged man this holiday.

  1. If you are looking to really impress a girl: Homemade baked goodies and flowers

If you are looking to make a really good impression on your special someone, bake! Trust me, if a guy goes out of his way to turn the heat up in the kitchen for his girl, he wont be dissapointed with the outcome. It doesn’t have to be anything intricate, simple chocolate chip cookies would do. Or you could even go a step further, and bake her favorite goodie! Don’t forget to throw in some flowers, because a girl is always expecting flowers on Valentine’s day. (Mine would definitely have to be white chocolate chip cookies, yummm) Toasted-Coconut-White-Chocolate-Chip-Cookies-1

2. For the newbies: Her favorite candies and flowers

It’s so cliche, I know. But if you were lucky enough to find a new someone right before Valentine’s Day, it’s better to play it safe with good ole fashioned candy and flowers. Pick a cute basket and fill it with all her favorite candies! Of course you must add in some flowers. Try to avoid your average chocolates, like hershey bars and kisses. Buying your chocolate from an actual chocolate place is much more thoughtful and delicious.

One of my favorite gifts was a basket filled with every kind of white chocolate from my local chocolate store. I was in literal white chocolate heaven.

3. For the Valentine’s veteran: Something New

So you and your girl have been together for a while and you’re stuck on what to get her? Thinking of a spontaneous and different date night will definitely make her and you happy! Ditch that same Italian restaurant you go to once a month and plan a fun picnic, or camping trip.

If you really want to go all out travel to a romantic new spot and treat yourselves to a couples spa day. Throw in some flowers and chocolates to make her feel extra special, and this Valentine’s Day will be one for the books.

 

What is your most memorable Valentine’s Day gift?

As the seasons changed we all have broke out those cozy, comfy clothing items to make the cold holidays a little more comfy and even festive! Today I have put together a few things that I always gravitate towards this time of year!

If you are looking to buy large, oversized, comfy sweaters try the mens section! The sweater above is actually a mens sweater from Marshalls, but it is so comfy and no one would even know it was meant for a guy. (16% off Marshalls gift card here)

While browsing around during my holiday shopping I discovered Raise. Raise is a great site that allows you to find awesome discounts on gift cards from some of my favorite shops, such as Express, Zara, Marshalls and more; they have gift cards to Express for 11% off and even Marshalls for up to 16% off! And we all know gift cards are a great and easy gift to give to your friends or loved ones.

The holidays are not complete without a cute pair of Christmas socks! If you are on a budget, Target has super cute socks in their $1 section, and Marshalls always has those fluffy socks we all love! (5% off Target gift cards here)

This time of year we all have an excuse to go overboard with out glitter and glam! This essie nail polish ‘Rock at the Top’ is an amazing color for the holidays as well as their other colors in the luxeffects line. (10% off Ulta gift cards here)

You can also add a little sparkle to your plain sweaters with these wrennjewelry rings, that I have been obsessing over this season!

 

Stay tuned for an even more glittery and glamours full look on the blog this weekend.
