Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

Along with my official list of Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her, I’ve been sprinkling in a handful of gift ideas for his and littles, as well, that I’m loving. Today, we are focusing on gift ideas for him. From the classic clothing staples that he might love to wear to the techy side of him, I will help you find the right and simple unique gifts for your loved ones. Staying at home, cooking and spending quality time together is my preferred go-to when it comes to this time of the year, especially when you have tiny little ones at home to take care of.

Men’s Leather Belt____________
// ANDERSON’S 3.5cm Woven Leather Belt //

This handsome braided leather one will definitely suit him for when he is on a late night date with you. Belts tend to be the only thing that men don’t want to replace over the years, so having a few would be nice thing to give him on a special day.

Leather Tablet Case____________
// Mark & Graham Leather Tablet Case, Pro, Black //

il-794x-N-2050217504-dlel I have the original iPad for about a few years now and we’ve gone through our fair share of covers and protectors. This sophisticated pebbled leather case is lightweight and compact, and gives your iPad enough protection that it needs. It converts into a stand while you work and has a magnetic closure for your convenient.

Bluetooth Headphones____________
// Beats Studio Buds – True Wireless Noise Cancelling Earphones – Black // Bose SoundLink II Around-Ear Bluetooth Headphones //

il-794x-N-2050217504-dlel MJ4X3 I love bluetooth headphones with noise cancellation features. I’ve given my husband the Beats for Christmas this past year and he has been enjoying it everyday since. You can gift this for your brother or a close guy friend as well, initial their names and write something special inside. Beautiful leather items and pieces are always a must have go-to for men to treasure, make sure you let them know how special they are to you.

Turntable Radio____________
// Crosley Radio Cruiser Deluxe Turntable //

92d0fc79-206a-4b9f-8a3f-312a1bb7088b 92d0fc79-206a-4b9f-8a3f-312a1bb7088b 6b60a483-26d1-46b8-bf17-6cbb1481edc0 Charming suitcase-style vinyl-wrapped turntable is what you need in this modern-day age era when you are listening to music from a retro look or a modern feel the vibe is all there. It has all kinds of colorful picks for you to choose from with a fun, sleek, modern, funky, eclectic and retro feel.

Leather Wallet____________
// Swanky Badger Personalized Leather Wallet //

il-794x-N-2050217504-dlel I gave this particular wallet to Justin on Father’s Day last year. He absolutely adores it and wears it every out daily. I personalized his initials in the front and inside, it says “Happy Father’s Day! You’re the best dad in the world!” He’s had his first wallet that I gifted to him for almost fifteen years before I replaced it with this one. I feel happy that it is holding everything that he needs to get by every single day. He would rather put everything in a zip lock if he had to if I never gotten him a wallet. He’s such a practical guy, I hope your love one will enjoy it as well.

Apple iPhone 13____________
// Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max //

Mary-Juliane-Trelease iphone-13-pro-max-family-select In the beginning of January, I finally purchased my third – yes, it’s true! – third iPhone, the first one was 15 years ago which was the very first iPhone to ever release and the second one was my iPhone 7s plus! This happened to be the best purchase of my life / this year! I ended up getting a plan and purchased the iPhone 13 Pro Max 1TB and I’m so in love with it! The phone itself offers the most amazing quality in photos and videos.
I got the chance to video my whole entire birth and I feel so blessed to have it in my life. These little things in my life, matters the most to me because it is what I need to live throughout the entire day with my family. I enjoy taking photos of my little babies every morning and videoing everything – every aspect of my well-being, their well-being, I love capturing everything in my life, especially my children’s life.
It’s important to have something in mind like a camera that can capture beautiful photos and has an epic 4K resolution screen, this one has everything that I need to go on with my day to day activities and work. 6341047-sd
Fortunately, it arrived on time before the birth of our baby girl this past month in January. It was such an overwhelming process because the very first iPhone that I received got damaged through the carrier, so I had to wait for our second one to come on time. Thankfully, it came the next week, a little bit shy of my delivery due date. It was such an amazing feeling opening the package and activating it once finally. I was extremely happy and overjoyed because I knew this would capture everything when I delivery our baby. The company had sent me a universal iPhone as well – much more better than a normal iPhone that I had purchased, so I’m very happy with that.
The Apps that I have are Lightroom and VSCO to edit my photos, and the quality it gives is outstanding!
6472654-rd I purchased this iPhone 13 Pro Max Silicone Case with MagSafe – Chalk Pink case and this Joby Gorilla tripod to go with my lifestyle. 6356399cv16d open-uri20210921-18122-1t6lpe1 A beautiful charging unit is best paired with this device, I gifted this particular one for my husband and myself this past Christmas, and it’s held up quiet nicely. This is a multi-coil device wireless technology valet silhouette that allows you to thoughtfully organize accessories and charge your devices. Keep in mind though that it’s only compatible with Apple’s iPhone 12 and 13 models. T-Without-Zoom
I suggest placing it on the nightstand or entryway of your home. This one is a versatile way to charge all of the devices in your family. I do want to say one thing though, be careful charging your phone on the station because it can overheat at times. It will damage your phone, so avoid it at all costs. I hope you’ll enjoy using your iPhone and always remember, you don’t need the most expensive things to take a photo or video your life story, you just need a creative mindset and a simple camera will do. It’s the memories that you create that you will treasure the most in your life, not the things.

LG OLED 83″____________
// LG – 83″ Class C1 Series OLED 4K UHD Smart webOS TV //

6454854-sd It’s the best overall above 80″ tv. That’s perfect for tv shows, movies, gaming and most importantly, sports. Perfect for the man cave or the family room. It’s OLED that has great viewing angles. 6454854cv3d It is by far the thinnest that I’ve come across, it’s also very light by the look of it. Absolutely gigantic from a far, but since we have a eight-foot wide fireplace mantle, we have to consider this option. It is so cool and imagining playing games and watching movies with my family, that’s very exciting.
I would pair this with a gaming console and you can read about it down below in a moment. This is perfect to pair it with the PS5 or Xbox console, watch movies all night with the family, make content videos for your business, and have fun creating memories with your loved ones.

The Frame TV____________
// Samsung – 55″ Class The Frame Series LED 4K UHD Smart Tizen TV //

6451485-sd With an LG OLED for him, I chose this FRAME TV for her. I am obsessed with the way it looks. It’s so pretty! There’s some screen savers online that you can buy so it’ll look like an art piece on the wall. There’s also some way that you can make it look like an antique. You can DIY the frame around it and make it however you want it to look. A modern and sophisticated look to a traditional and vintage feel.

Gaming Console____________
// PS5 Digital Edition // Xbox Series X //

playstation-5-digital-edition-with-dualsense-front-product-shot-01-ps5-en-30jul20 Lastly, my top favorite is the gaming console edition for basically the whole entire family. I enjoy playing with my kids and my husband and I can get a little bit competitive. These two will surely make your husband or love one happy. I prefer the PS5 because it’s beautiful and but the Xbox Series offers more, it’s truly up to you which ever you go – both are amazing and your family will have a lot of fun playing! 6428324cv11d My daughters since they were 2, have loved playing games from RoBlox to Minecraft and now serious games like Call of Duty, Halo, Undertale, Five Nights at Freddy’s, Sims, and more. It’s fun watching them play and they’ve improved throughout the years as well. My husband, he’s the most serious type with gaming and some times it’s fun watching him play without the craziness. Make sure to also include a good headphone, since you’ll want to talk with other gamers online and communicate with them while playing.
Xbox Series X, the fastest, most powerful Xbox ever. Explore rich new worlds with 12 teraflops of raw graphic processing power, DirectX ray tracing, a custom SSD, and 4K gaming.
PS5 Digital Edition is an all-digital version of the PS5 console with no disc drive. Sign into your account for PlayStation Network and go to PlayStation Store to buy and download games.

Projector & Screen____________
// CINEWOOD Storyteller Portable Projector & Content Device // Projector Screen with Stand 100 inch Portable Projection Screen 16:9 4K HD //

8681b486-5620-4f65-a173-378c984c2dda The Storyteller projector is so unique, lightweight and portable. Point it at a blank wall or screen and pop some popcorn for a cozy night in. For the price, it’s hard to beat. I would set this up in our family room, take it everywhere with us on our road trips and watch movies and binge tv shows on our family vacations.
The tv shows that we are currently watching right now is Ozark, The Witcher, Games of Thrones, The Blacklist, Elementary, and a few more that I can’t remember. I also enjoy binge watching the classic tv shows like Star Trek, SG1, Supernatural, Friends and The Office. img46o
Well, I hope you are planning something special with your loved ones on Valentine’s Day. It doesn’t have to be extravagant or luxurious, it could just be hanging out and relaxing at home. As long as you are together having fun, that’s all should matter. Have a good time and be safe, careful and take care of yourself and your family!

What are you guys doing for Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her

Valentine’s Day is for those who shows how much they truly care for one another, a special someone in mind. I think when you write a lovely letter handwritten, that’s beautiful and enough. There’s so much more to gifts though, there’s words and actions that you can create and find the time to make that special someone feel loved. Whether you’re shopping for something extravagant for your mom, sisters, friend, there’s a few items below that might help find the right gifts for them.

// Dainty Stacking Name Ring Personalized Name Ring //

il-794x-N-2050217504-dlel I’ve been eyeing these lately since Liam was born. I’ve been wanting to own a few sets of stacked rings for my littles. These are definitely what I would imagine wearing in the daily. This would also be wonderful as a Mother’s Day or a birthday gift as well. Since the day my two oldest daughters’ been born, I’ve been collecting jewelries for them to keep. Now we have our youngest daughter, I’ve been collecting jewelries for her as well. I recently bought her a personalized bracelet with her name on it and now I’m looking for a beautiful piece of necklace for her to wear when she’s older.

// Love Story by Chloe // Chloe Signature Perfume Travel Set //

chloe s2477107-main-zoom
What I love about this day is gifting someone special a lovely scented perfume or candles. It’s truly your choice which way to go. I love perfume and I’ve owned a few over and the past few years, I’ve collected about a dozen. I only ever wear them when I go out, but the thing that I admire most about perfume is the way it makes you feel. I love Chloe, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, and Chanel (this would have to be my first pick!). I do believe that when you wear perfume, even when it’s a sad time of your life, it lifts you up and makes you feel wholehearted.

Fleeced Lined Robed____________
// Cozy Robe in Berry //

Screen-Shot-2022-01-28-at-12-12-24-PM I’ve had a few robes these past year that I’ve recently purchased from Victoria’s Secret, but I’ve been dreaming about owning one of these lately. Ever since I had my son, three years ago, I’ve always wanted one of these, but I’ve always been hesitating due to the price. I would love to own one of these days some day, but nowadays my robe that I have in my closet is enough. I do love the look and feel of this robe though, it’s beautiful and subtle. This would be so lovely in the evening during Christmas season, it’s so light and warm for the winter! I hope this gets on sale so I can buy one or a few for myself!

Scented Candles____________
// Diptyque Roses //

bougie-roses-190g Honestly, I’ve never owned a beautiful candle like these, so I’m not even going to say anything at all. I do love the way it looks though, I might get one for the looks and décor for our home. I love collecting candles and a few years ago, my daughters gave me candle making kit for my birthday. It was a lovely gift, I still appreciate it so much to this day. I love candles during a bubble bath, rainy days, and after I’m done cleaning the whole entire house. My favorite smell is red roses, champagne and fruit scented candles. I think it’s more of a reward than anything, to me it’s a want more than a necessity. It’s absolutely gorgeous – but it’s also quite expensive, so save up before you get one for yourself!

// VEJA + NET SUSTAIN Esplar leather and suede sneakers //

w920-q80 I believe every women should own a few pair of shoes in their lifetime. I am obsessed with my shoe collections. I have addidas, nike air, zara, converse, black boots, hunter boots, and vans in my closet. These shoes are beautiful! There are other colors to consider when buying these shoes, they are so cozy as well. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted a bookcase filled with Chanel shoes and black sandals. Now that I have three daughters and a boy, I would rather collect memories and handwritten letters from them. These shoes will also do! These with (here and here) will complete the look. It’s staple pieces to wear alongside long trench coats here and black top as well. More stylish and casual wear would be with a pair of denim jeans (here) or a black long dress (here). I prefer the denim jeans with a trench coat and black top the most, paired with black bag and layered gold stacked jewelry.

Jewelry Travel Case____________
// Jewelry Travel Case • Minimal Jewelry Box in Vegan Leather by Caitlyn Minimalist //

il-1140x-N-2636545438-sc0i This lovely little jewelry case is really wonderful if you are traveling with a few of your item jewelry pieces with you on the road or a plane. It’s so versatile, compact, clean and simple. I love how it’s so small that you can put it in your purse as well. The color is so lovely and if you want to buy something simple for your mom, sister, or a friend, this would be a perfect way of showing them that you care about what they love and keeping it safe – is always key to a happy girl and her jewelry! There are affordable finds as well in amazon, this beautiful blue one (here) and this lovely pink one (here) from potterybarn.

// Cuyana Purse – Small Structured Leather Tote //

Cuyana I’ve been wanting this same exact bag for a year now and somehow I wanted to wait until my birthday. I love the color of this bag so much, I’ve never seen such a lovely shade ever. I’ve had a few purses, my favorite ones are Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Zara and Louis Vuitton (in my wish list!). I love how there’s pockets in the inside for a wallet and keys, iPhone, make up and baby necessities. There are a few items that are similar to this type of bag and you can find it (here) – Michael Kors line, a recent gift from my lovely daughters and son! A very lovely shade of pink that I absolutely love! As well as this lovely black one (here) – my favorite!

// Ladurée – Pink Sugared Almond Gift Box //

93ebaeaa32e993a06dc61824508c0deb There’s something good about eating a macaroon in bed, in my case – in Paris. I wish there was a way to go to France without leaving home since we still have a pandemic. I love eating cookies while binge watching a movie or two in bed, snuggled up with my children and favorite hot tea. I’ve never eaten this type of snack before, I heard it’s to die for. I wouldn’t mind eating a thing or two with my littles. I had chosen this particular one because it has almond in it, I absolutely love anything with almonds! I have a few other ones that you might enjoy eating, ferrero rocher, is this one that I have on my night stand and my all time favorite to snack on in the middle of the night and my most recent find is this one here.

// Fresh Anemone Bunch // Fresh White Anemone + Eriostemon Bunch // Ranunculus, Roses, Anemone, Sweet Pea, Peony, Tulips & Calla Lilies //

32685653-000-e I’ve always admired flowers on Valentine’s Day, but I always tell my husband not to buy me anything and wait until our Anniversary or birthdays. This year, since we now have a baby, I want to buy a bouquet of flowers for her first Valentine’s Day and as well as the other two older sisters, from their darling little baby brother. I think it would be the absolute cutest thing ever if Liam shows up at home and gives his newborn baby sister a bouquet of roses and his older sisters as well. Wouldn’t be so lovely? I still have our first card when Justin was deployed and he sent me flowers. That was almost 15 years ago, now we make handwritten cards with our children and we make it fun for them with hand prints and foot prints of our babies! It’s fun when there’s little kids involve in the most cutest way possible! I love these flowers because they are so beautiful and you can gift it to your mother, sister, or a close friend for any occasion. I also love these ones here and here as well. 68289578-000-a 62384615-000-d No matter what you gift to your loved ones, it’s truly the time and thought that you’ve put into your gifting that truly matters the most. The time that you’ve spent with them, that’s valuable. You can never take that back and the memories that you’ve shared with them – with your children – is what you will treasure the most in life. I always knew I wanted to be a mom, I never knew all of my little ones would make me the happiest mom in the world. I truly feel so blessed. I choose their adorable laugh and kind words, long spontaneous kisses and hugs over anything! I am the luckiest momma in the world!

Shopterrain “The overall effect is lush, vibrant, and completely modern. We’ve stayed away from the traditional red tones and instead opted for a fresh spectrum of white, pink, burgundy, and black, staying true to the holiday’s tradition while infusing it with our own terrain spin. Ranunculus, roses, anemone, sweet pea, peony, snapdragon, stock, scabiosa, tulips, waxflower, eucalyptus, calla lily, riceflower, fern shoots, ti leaf, agonis, kraft paper, ribbon, care card”

Recipe Box Cards____________
// Victoria & Albert Museum William Morris Recipe Box Cards //

81z-BYKJ83-RL I think this particular box cards is so sweet and special to gift to your mom or sister. My daughters wouldn’t mind this in our kitchen. I do prefer the colors of blues and pinks, maybe light beige or whites, but this is also very lovely. The only thing that keeps me in our kitchen is cooking and cleaning. I love cooking unique recipes from all around the world. The challenges that Justin & I go through while cooking is insane. We have burnt through turkeys every single year in a row for our Thank you dinner on Thanksgiving Day. This recipe box is very easy to use, I usually look through Pinterest boards of homecooked meals and I print the recipes from there, and it goes straight to my card box. It’s simple, unique and fun!
