Vally Day is right around the corner so I figured I’d share some gift ideas for the little ladies and men in your life! It’s just now occurring to me that I probably should have made one for little boys too… Whoops! I promise to include both genders for my Easter basket blog post next month haha. The Big Gal’s Guide pictured above is basically a wish list of all the things I currently want (except for #4 and #6, I own both pairs and love them!). The V-day guides below have explanations/descriptions for each item. Hope this is helpful! <3
For the Little Gals:
1 – Pink Nighty: This is one of my favorite nighties that Presleigh owns! It’s so sweet and reminds me of the night gowns I wore when I was a little girl too.
2 – Pretend Makeup: This little set is SO cute and only $19. It’s pretend play, so no actual makeup is in there. There is another set I also loved (click here!) that is a little more life-like and might entertain P a little more, it’s just not as cute as this one haha (only $21 for the more life-like one!). Definitely getting one of these, just haven’t decided which one yet!
3 – Monogrammed plate/cup/marker-case: How cute is this?! So affordable too. The price includes mono! Plate $14, Cup $7, Marker Case $14. Checkout her instagram @katiescarletdesigns for other super cute gift ideas!
4 – Hunter Rain Boots: These are a staple for every little girl’s (or boy!) closet. I suggest sizing up for longer wear!
5 – Apron & Baking Kit: I can’t think of one little girl who wouldn’t love this little set! Only $18.99!
For the Gents:
I’ll be totally honest, I’m still not sure what I’ll be getting Matt this year… but these 6 items have all been home-run gifts in years past! Like he uses this stuff EVERY SINGLE DAY! Sooo if anyone has some A+ man approved recommendations for me I’ll gladly take them. ha! Hope these are helpful for you!
1 – Garmin Vivofit 3 Activity Tracker: AKA fitbit that you don’t have to charge. The battery on this thing lasts SO long, and it has a light-up option for night-time. It’s water-proof and tracks your steps, Matt is obsessed with knowing how many steps/miles he walks in a day! And it’s only $55 right now (normally $80!).
2 – Cajun Whiskey Glasses: These are perfect for your Louisiana man. Matt’s from New Jersey, but he’s convinced himself (and others) that he was born and raised in NOLA. I can’t blame him, it’s a pretty fantastic place! These glasses are 4/$30 and make the perfect gift. You could also do a monogram if you prefer that!
3 – Bulleit Bourbon: I don’t drink anything in the whiskey/bourbon family, but Matt is a huge fan and Bulleit is one of his favorites! Supposedly it’s a delicious and budget friendly option.
4. Calvin Klein Briefs: So, funny enough, my MOTHER of all people got Matt some Calvin Klein briefs for Christmas (he apparently told her I don’t wash his underwear enough so he needs more. This is unfortunately quite true.) Anyway, he is completely obsessed. His FAVORITE pair is this micro stretch version, which costs $28 per pair, but he’s into the cotton kind too which is a little better at 3/$50. Clearly he’ll only be getting these undies for special occasions, which means I should probably start doing laundry more frequently.
5. Bose Soundsport Wireless Headphones: So, I actually tried buying a cheap pair of wireless headphones off Groupon, but they crapped out almost immediately. So this past Christmas these headphones were one of Matt’s gifts and he uses them every time he works out. Says they are fantastic! Maybe one day I’ll start working out again and will get a pair. Maybe…
6. Coldbrew Coffee Maker: Matt gets up super early in the morning for work and never has time to make coffee, and he’s actually a bigger fan of cold coffee, so were super excited after discovering this coldbrew coffee maker! It sits in our fridge and one batch of coffee lasts several days. It doesn’t take up much space either. It’s a great investment if you’re into iced coffee!
