Can you believe Valentine’s Day is almost here?! Is it just me, or does Christmas still feel like it’s around the corner. I was walking through my local JC Penney’s the other day and there was a blow up Santa in their appliances section with a sign that said “85 days until Christmas”. That means we get to do Halloween, Thanksgiving, AND Christmas all over again, right! 😂 At least I’m not the only one having a hard time letting go.
Thankfully my love for holidays is being fed by the upcoming Valentine’s Day. This will be our daughter’s first and I can’t wait to get her a cute gift! As far as my husband, I sometimes feel like I am major lacking in the unique gift ideas department. Especially since his birthday is only a couple weeks before and Valentine’s is also our anniversary! We will have started dating 10 years ago this Valentine’s so I want to make it extra special. Are you also lacking in gift ideas? Never fear! I’ve came across a couple great products and gift ideas that hopefully you’ll love and will make your Valentine’s easier!
1. JORD watches
Have you heard of JORD watches? If not, you’ll be thrilled to have found them! JORD watches are unique, wooden watches made for men and women. I don’t know about you, but I personally had never seen a wooden watch or even knew they existed really. The quality and uniqueness of each JORD watch is something you won’t find anywhere else. It truly gives your gift recipient (or yourself) a statement piece.
I was lucky enough to be sent one of their watches to gift my husband. Thanks for collaborating with me on this blog post JORD watches! My husband received the Koa & Ash watch in their Frankie series. It’s such a cool watch! The Koa wood is native to Hawaii and is widely considered the most beautiful of all the hardwoods. Let me tell you, I agree!
My favorite feature about JORD watches is that most are customizable! You can choose to have backplate or presentation box engraving done with block or script OR you can engrave a custom design! They use precision laser to engrave. What an amazing feature to personalize the watch, making your gift that much more special!
If you’re wondering about the upkeep on these gorgeous pieces, check out their recommended wood care here.

2. Qalo rings
Most of my readers are parents and/or know someone who’s a parent. We all know that being a parent is a very active lifestyle – always on the go, tending to your child/ren’s every need, having very little time to worry about yourself. Do yourself and/or your loved one a favor and pick up a Qalo silicon ring or two.
I have a beautiful wedding ring set and I love wearing my rings. After I became a mother, I found that my rings would catch and snag on so many things while caring for my baby. My engagement rings sits up tall and honestly seemed somewhat dangerous to wear while I was caring for my baby. This is where Qalo rings save the day. Their silicon rings are built for active lifestyles – able to be comfortable, durable and fashion forward. We were lucky enough to be gifted a few ring options from Qalo and I can honestly say both my husband and I love them!
3. Custom Gift Basket
If you’re really out of time, and don’t want to wait for one of the above two options to be shipped, consider this: create a custom gift basket!
Who knows your spouse/significant other/friend more than you! Grab a reusable bag or tote and fill that sucker with all their favorite things! Come up with a theme and follow it:
-Going to the movies: popcorn, candy, drinks, DVD, movie passes
-Spa: lotions, bath bombs, face mask, luxurious towel, room spray
-Be my Valentine: Stuffed animal, flowers, wine, wine glass, candy
The sky is the limit! This is one of my favorite last minute gift options because it’s fun and unique. You can also make this customizable to fit your budget! The gift recipient will know you took time to make their gift special!
I hope you and yours will have a memorable Valentine’s Day and enjoy looking into any or all of these wonderful ideas. As a reminder, all of these gifts are not only great Valentine’s Day gifts, but also any occasion gifts.
Whats after Valentine’s Day for me to look forward to? My BIRTHDAY! 🙌
