If you don’t know where to start for Valentine’s Day this year, I have some ideas. Hop on these fast so they’ll arrive in time and you can be the hero.
Let’s start with these pink druzy earrings from Amulette Jewelry, which are out of control. Stunning.
If your main squeeze is kind of a softie, I recommend this family of love birds on a gold chain. You can custom order the number of kids you have as baby birds.
If your baby mama is more rock ‘n roll, a bleeding heart from Lusasul should fit the bill.
This gorgeous, warm, and modern square sapphire ring from Prismera:
Is your wife the hippest? How hip is she? Survival of the Hippest crafts hashtag and @s for your girl
Do you wish you were the type who could remember flowers at least once a month but you always fail? Sign up for Darlybird’s Earring of the Month Club and a new pair will show up like magic on her doorstep all year. Who’s the hero? You are.
Step up your chocolate game and replenish her secret chocolate stash with a velvet heart from Leonidas–the Belgian chocolate masters. Every year I recommend these and every year someone calls me up crying because they’re so good. Is it cheap? No, goofball, it’s GOOD. If you want cheap, pick up some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Chocolates from the drug store.
Get some good flowers. Do you know what aren’t good flowers? Red roses with babies breath. Red roses with babies breath are from 1987 and you need to get better at flowers. Call up your LOCAL florist and ask them to create something from the flowers that they have. You can tell them things like, “She doesn’t like carnations” or “She loves tulips” and a real florist will create something awesome and have them delivered, often for cheaper than you can find them online.
What else does your wife really want for Valentine’s Day? For you to get up with the kid and leave her to sleep in–while you’re cleaning and folding seven loads of laundry. Get on that.
Because the truth is that moms just want you to think about what you’re getting them in advance. A day to sleep in, or cleaning out the fridge, scrubbing the kitchen, and getting take out for later is more awesome than grocery store chocolate samplers. Whatever you get, include a love note and you’ll be golden.
But seriously, make a plan, don’t be this guy:
