Unique Valentine's Day Gift Ideas Under $60 - For Her

There are only 10 days until Valentine's Day! The day of love! And what better way to show your love than with a kind gesture and a thoughtful gift.  If you haven't purchased something for your special lady yet, I'd suggest getting those orders in soon. To help with the process, I've put together this list of unique gifts that are perfect for Valentine's Day! 


Accessories For Her Phone

Go ALL PINK this Valentine's Day with some practice gifts for her smartphone. These phone accessories by iDeal Of Sweden, are not only useful presents, but are also extremely trendy. Take for example this, Pilion Pink Marble Phone Case. Marble cases are all the rage right now, and the pink hues make it perfect for V Day.  The Mayfair Clutch is also a great option as it is both a wallet and phone case. It comes with a magnetic mechanism that allows you to remove and attach any of these iDeal Of Sweden phone cases, which means you could get her both of these pink products to use together. And last but not least, this iPhone Charging Cable in "Floral Romance" just screams Valentine's Day, which isn't surprising considering the name of the pattern right? 


If She Loves Wine..

A women who doesn't love wine? It's a pretty rare finding. So going with a wine accessory is a safe and practical option as a gift. My all time favorite wine accessory is the Pyrite Wine Stopper, by Downtown Alchemy. This is literally jewelry for your wine bottle! This product helps you keep the wine fresh while also acting as a decorative piece for the table. I can't get enough of this beautiful wine stopper, and I have a feeling she'll feel the same way too.



A Fix For Those Dry Winter Lips

Let me just say, that the winter weather has been rough on my lips like year. Between the bitter cold wind and dry air, my lips were starting to look horrendous. That is until I started using this Lip Scrub, by NaturalE. I'm telling you, this is probably one of the most useful (and V-DAY appropriate) gifts you can give a girl with chapped lips. This delicious scrub lightly exfoliates the lips and then leaves them feeling buttery soft! It's really simple to use too. All you needs to do is rub a little on your lips, massage it in, then rinse with cool water, and VIOLÁ! Lips as good as new. Better than new, I might argue! 


Fun Pajamas

Lingerie is a pretty cliche gift for February 14th. Instead, I'm suggesting you go with a pair of cute pajama's to brighten up her sleepwear! I myself am in love with this Pineapple Pajama Set, by SheIn. These PJs are both affordable and adorable, not to mention comfortable! One word of advice though, if you're choosing between two sizes, always go with the larger one because PJ's are meant to be a little baggy!


Accessories For Her Apple Watch

I've seen so many apple watch bands out there, but none like this Harris Tweed Merlot Apple Watch Band, by Vario! These bands work as a gift for either gender, but I think the Merlot color is especially appropriate to gift a women for Valentine's Day. Also featured here is the same tweed band but in the Ash Grey color. The apple watch isn't the most traditional looking watch if you know what I mean, but with the help of this tweed band it can be transformed into a classic and sophisticated accessory.

Unique Valentine's Day Gift Ideas Under $50 - For Him

Less than 2 weeks until Valentine's Day! Can you believe it? I feel like it was just yesterday that I was shopping for Christmas presents. But hey, I'll never give up a chance to shop (especially if it's for my best friend)! So today, I've put together a list of some unique, but affordable, Valentine's Day gifts that any guy would love!



WOOD You Look At That? 

Give your man a little piece of nature this V Day with one of these beautiful wood charging stations by Oakywood! Featured here are two separate products, the Wood Apple Watch Charging Station and the Wood iPhone Charing Station, my personal favorites. But Oakywood also offers this dual charging station which is a two-in-one. The simple geometric design of these products are on theme with the popular minimalist home decor trend that's been all the rage. The stations are made with quality wood and come with stickers on the bottom to hold them in place once you know where you want to keep them. What better way to charge your technology than in one of these beautifully designed charing blocks?



Upgrade That Old Wallet Of His

Does your man have a 10 y/o wallet that looks like it could use an upgrade? Yeah mine too. That's why I got my boyfriend this Personalized Leather Wallet, by Jeda Leather. This beautifully stitched leather wallet has a rugged stylish design, with an incredible amount of card slots, likely to fit everything a guy could ever want in there.  If he likes to carry the bare minimum, then I suggest checking out this Minimalist Personalized Leather Wallet, also by Jeda Leather. The fewer card slots and wallet clip interior are what contribute to it's slim design. The choice is difficult, I know! So instead, you could just go with both, which is what I did! One wallet can be for the hold-all purpose, and one can be for when he wants to carry light.



Accessories For His Apple Watch

I've seen so many apple watch bands out there but none like this Harris Tweed Ash Grey Apple Watch Band, by Vario! A tweed watch band?! How cool is that. Your man will be the most dapper guy at the party with this accessory. Also featured here is the same tweed band but in the Merlot color, which is just perfect for V Day don't ya think?. The apple watch isn't the most traditional looking watch if you know what I mean, but with the help of this tweed band it can be transformed into a classic and sophisticated accessory.



Accessories For His Phone

I've been obsessed with phone cases lately, so it's as no surprise that I'm including one in this gift guide is it? While I've featured quite a few products from iDeal Of Sweden, this Dual Card Wallet Case, is the first of their masculine designs to hit BTFL.  This case features a sophisticated leather design with a few card slots to keep the absolute necessities like his ID and a credit card. What better gift than this extremely practical and affordable one?



Instead Of Roses

A man giving a women a bouquet of flowers is probably one of the most cliche Valentine's Day gifts. To mix it up, you should considering gifting him some plants this year! And instead of roses, make it a succulent! Besides being extremely trendy right now, a succulent is a present that will last a lot longer than a bouquet of flowers. In fact, this gift could last forever if given the proper care, just like your love for each other. Too cheesy? Oh well, you see my point.

Gift Ideas For Her (A.K.A. Products I Know And Love, that She'll Love Too!)

Hello my friends and Happy December! Can you believe that the Holidays are only a few short weeks away? If you're still looking for a gift for a special gal in your life (whether it be a girlfriend, sister, daughter, or BFF) OR if you're just looking to treat yourself, then I'm here to help! Below, I've put together a list of products that I personally love (and know are of the highest quality), that will make great presents.


1. The World's Best Leggings


High Rise 3/4 Legging, by Girlfriend Collective

Is the person you're shopping for an on-the go person, a gym rat, or I don't know.. a girl? Well then she probably loves a good pair of leggings! I personally own leggings from so many different brands -- Lululemon, Nike, Calvin Klein, just to name a few. However, I don't own two pairs of leggings from the same brand and I think that's because I've always just continued to search for a better pair. Well I think that I've finally found the one! The High Rise 3/4 Legging, by Girlfriend Collective, are everything I've ever wanted in a pair of leggings -- 1) they're comfortable, 2) they're tight enough to stay in place but without making seam indentations in my skin, 3) they are camel-toe free, 4) they feature a high-waist design, 4) they show the perfect amount of ankle, 5) the high quality fabric doesn't wear easily from use or wash, and 6) they are a lot more affordable than the $98 Lululemon equivalent.  I have so many great things to say about these leggings, but the most honorable part is that Girlfriend Collective uses recycled bottles to make their leggings! How cool is that? I can promise you, these leggings will not disappoint!



2. Designer Handbag Lookalike

Genuine Leather Cross Body, by QZUnique

What girl doesn't like a cute handbag? What girl has "too many" handbags?.. None. And that's precisely why a purse is a great gift idea! But not trying to spend a thousand bucks on a designer handbag? No worries, I've found a high-quality Chloé Faye Small Shoulder Bag look-alike! This Genuine Leather Cross Body is made with real split leather and even features the two tone metal detailing that the Chloé one does! Oh and did I mention that it's only $56 and ships FO FREE with amazon prime.  Is your girl pick? Afraid she won't like it? No worries, The Amazon Seller, QZUnique, offers free returns for this item. 



3. Unique Sunglasses

Scenic Route, by VYE Eyewear

If you're looking for a more unique gift, I would suggest checking out the VYE Eyewear collection. VYE one of my favorite sunglasses brands. I own the Scenic Route (featured above) and the Hitchhiker (featured here), both of which I use regularly. Now sometimes sunglasses are made with cheap, unreliable materials, but not these bad boys -- they are around for the long haul. So if you're looking to give her a gift that will help her stand out from the crowd and will last a long time, these sunglasses aren't a bad place to start! 



4. Handy Dandy Kicks

Adidas Stan Smith Sneaker

Looking for a practical gift? A comfortable yet fashionable sneaker, might just be your best option! My go to shoe (of all time) is the Adidas Stan Smith. I wear these kicks at least 4 times a week. AT LEAST! Why, you may ask? Because they go with everything and are the most comfortable shoe I own! They never take away from the stylish appeal of an ensemble, something that is very important to me. And the white leather is surprisingly easy to keep clean (I've had these shoes for about 3 months now and they still look great). I'll always hold a special place in my heart for these sneakers, and I'm guessing she will too!



5. Statement Coat

Tall Double Breasted Coat, by Topshop

Help her stay warm and in style this winter with a stunning coat! Topshop has such a great collection of jackets and coats, almost all of which make quite the statement. My suggestion is to go with a checked or plaid option, as that's a popular trend this season. The exact Topshop coat that I'm wearing in today's post is no longer available but I've linked up a nearly identical option here!



6. A Bit Of Bling

Fiction Narrow Bangle, by Swarovski

Getting her some pretty jewelry is always a safe option! Swarovski is a great place to start looking because not only do they have some trendy designed, but also because their collection is always made with quality metal and crystals. I own the Rose Gold Fiction Narrow Bangle, except in yellow gold. Unfortunately, the yellow gold option is unavailable on the Swarovski website. But, I was able to find it on sale at Walmart, if you can believe it! Alternatively, if you're looking for a less expensive similar option, the Fiction Bangle from the Swarovski outlet is about half the price.
