Valentine's Gift Ideas

12:50 PM

This year, Joe and I will be in New York for Valentine's day, which is gift enough, but that hasn't stopped me from eyeing down some goodies that I can buy for myself. These gifts are all wallet-friendly (I'm talking under 50$) and the perfect way to say I love yourself! *Click on the images to see where to get each of the items. 

I love my FitBit, but those silicone bands are really hindering my fashion. I thought about purchasing the Tory Burch gold bracelet option, but a quick skim of the reviews on her website had me second guessing whether the $195 price tag was worth it. That said, I stumbled across the newest addition to the Tory Burch for FitBit line...the silicone band. Yes, it's still silicone and it may still clash with some outfits (especially for work), but it's Tory Burch and it's less than $50 bucks...enough said. 

H&M has done it again. This coat is perfect for spring, which I am really hoping comes early this year despite what the groundhog said. Nevertheless, I can just see this perfect powder pink short coat, paired over a classic ivory dress, or for some added flair -  jeans, some gray over the knee boots and a cute sweater. Either way, this beauty is on my wish list..and for less than $50 bucks, it's not going to last long!

I have been eyeing these palette since I saw it mentioned on a fellow bloggers page, (by fellow I actually mean she is a huge name in blogging  and is worth checking out if you haven't already). For less than $50 bucks, I don't know why I haven't picked it up yet. I've admired it on three seperate occasions at Ulta and once tried to talk Joe into buying it for me for no reason at all (he's seen my makeup collection - he knows better!). I am thinking this is the perfect item to buy while in New York this weekend - if for none other than no sales tax. Done and done!

It's pink, it's read and it's bejeweled. This clutch is practically screaming "BUY ME FOR VALENTINES DAY!". And even if I don't get it in time to use this weekend, who cares?! It's a fabulous clutch that will get use all Spring and Summer. Nevermind my recent obsession with buying clutches. For less than $50 bucks, this is a must in my shopping cart!

Water is vital to our survival, so why not sip it from a fun and cute tumbler?!  Am I right? Plus I like drinking from a straw, weird I know. The "break the ice" slogan is practically begging me to just give in and purchase it already, which for $18 dollars, I mine as well do. And as an added bonus, this is going to be the perfect companion for my long train rides when I move back to Chicago!

So there ya go, 5 super cute, super cheap Valentine's gifts for yourself. And if your significant other asks, exchanging gifts "just isn't in the budget this year". Now take that money saved and invest it in some of these babies! I happen to think that it's a brilliant idea :)
