Fellas I know you lack creativity well at least most of you do, I know it’s kind of harsh but it’s true and when it comes to special occasion and holidays you guys are always in a funk and need a girls help. Well I am here to take that pressure of you and give you a good Valentine’s Day gift idea for your special lady. Yeah flowers and candies are nice but can a girl get a little effort put into our gift from time to time. I love this idea because if you know your girlfriend and pay attention like you should be doing then filling in these senses box/bags should be quite easy.
It’s called a senses box and it consist of 5 boxes or whatever you want to put the items in for example boxes, gift bags, etc. Label each box the following See/ Hear/ Smell/ Touch/Taste. Here are a few gift ideas to put in each box I think will be cute, but remember fellas not all girls like the same things. Good luck and happy lover’s day ladies and gents.
See: I would probably buy lingerie a lace bra or sexy underwear maybe your favorite color to add your own personal touch. Another idea maybe print her favorite photo of you two and frame it.
Hear: If you two have a favorite movie you like to watch together you can buy her a DVD of it. I know a lot of ladies like Disney movies makes them remember their childhood buy them that movie, every girl has a favorite princess! You can also throw it back old school and buy her a CD of her favorite singer or band, I would take out the paper from the front of the CD and customize the front with something you drew or wrote.
Smell: If you’re smart you’ll get lotion for massages, or candles to set the mood.
Touch: I am addicted to coffee mugs so I would love to touch a damn coffee mug every morning. If your girl loves makeup get her something she’ll like if your clueless get her a gift card for $20.00 to purchase the makeup makes it easier for you.
Taste: This is the easiest because this is where the Valentine’s Day candy isle comes in handy because you can stock up and load the bag or box.
February 14 the day the world splits in two and there is only two opinions either your head over heels in love, or your talking shit about every stupid romantic insta quote or couple picture you see. Come on now we have all been guilty of doing at least one of these in our lifetime. I like Valentine’s Day but since being with my boyfriend, we have switched it up we now celebrate it the day after on Feb 15 when everyone is home and the restaurants are back to normal and don’t have wait times of an hour or more. We started this last year which worked out very well and I really enjoyed it because what’s a calendar to tell me when I have to celebrate love day, not happening.
On to gift Ideas I know most people are either stuck on what the hell to buy their loved ones, and then there are others that pay attention when there boyfriend/girlfriend talk. Unlike those people I like to make my own DIY gifts because I feel like it means more than going to a store and buying something. Last year I bought a valentine’s day box and filled it with confetti, I bought all his favorite candies every size and filled the box with those. I purchased mini bottles of all his favorite liquor for example 2 fireballs, 2 Johnny Walker Black Label, and 2 Jack Daniels Tennessee Fire no ladies and gents he’s not a drunk he’s a man’s man who can drink whisky (lol). I then cut out 6 heart shaped papers and wrote cute silly drunk quotes on each heart, I then tied the hearts with red string around the bottle. Hopefully this gets your artistic juices flowing and makes you want to make your own gift for your loved one this year. For my single peeps no worries throw on your favorite movie order your favorite take out to avoid the long wait times and have your own day, or you can do the Miami thing and grab all your single friends and go out and forget its Valentine’s Day.
The second outfit is for those couples that love to celebrate this day, dress up, and take Miami for what it truly is: a fun and adventurous night out. I paired a simple white dress from Forever 21, and added these divine red studded heels, that I revolved this look around. To add a little more spice to the outfit, I went with 2 simple gold necklaces, and a gold bracelet. I hope this helped some of you that were in a fashion block; even if you don’t have a bf you can totally still dress up, and take your mom or brother out on vday.
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day, and what to wear omg help!!!???
Well, I’m here to make your life a little less hectic, and be a little more helpful. I decided on two outfits for today’s post: my first outfit is a casual/movie date, A pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, but this time they are a little more fitted, rather than the usual loose and baggy fit; I paired these Cotton On jeans with a plain white v- neck, also from Cotton On, which by the way, the material is like wearing clouds literally (lol). To add a bit of sexiness to the outfit, I spiced it up with nude strappy heels, and a matching clutch to give it a night life feel. To make it feel more Valentine’s Day-ish I added a red matte lipstick, and this gorgeous Channel inspired pearl necklace that I love, and it was just under $8.00. Enjoy your Valentine’s Day with whomever it shall be with that special night.
