The V-Day Gift Guide

I know a lot of people hate Valentine’s Day because it’s a ‘consumerist holiday’ and it puts ‘unrealistic expectations on people’ and ‘I’m lonely’, BUT GET OUTTA HERE NEGATIVE NANCEYS. I LOVE VALENTINE’S DAY. I love love, and eating candy, and reds and pinks are good colours on me. Just like every other blogger who dabbles in ‘style’ blogging, I whipped up a little gift guide for you in case you’re stuck in what to get for your significant other/bff/yourself.

v day - for him

Listen, you probably tolerate your guy, or even like him! Show him your affection through buying things instead of through emotions or physical touch. Here are a few things you can pick up for your BF/Crush/That guy you haven’t broken up with yet.

1. Tickets – tickets for a sports game or some sort of performance are great because it’s something you can do together AKA it’s a present for you too.

2. Inniskillin Merlot – A great bottle of wine is something you can share together over a great dinner. Are you sensing a theme?

3. Plaid Shirt – Okay this one is just for him. A solid plaid can be dressed up or dressed down. Make sure it isn’t too similar to a plaid you own, because you don’t want to accidentally match. Take it from me.

4. Whisky Stones – These are a nice touch for any guy who loves his whisky strong and cold. Or just likes cold beverages in general.

5. Watch – For this kind of gift, you have to really love your significant other. The black on black on black is hella stylish.
