Be Mine. A Valentine Gift Guide.

slideshow_8

Ahhh….Valentine’s Day.  Just the thought can bring to the surface so much nostalgia from hand-made 4th grade Valentine mailboxes to anti-Valentine’s day piñata smashing (picture Jennifer Garner with a baseball bat in Valentine’s Day!). Whatever your heart-day memories connote, we promote choosing to share the love with your leading ladies – significant other, wife, mother, daughter or princess. And, if you’re the leading lady of your own life (as you should be!) don’t be shy – treat yourself! 

Here are a few Valentine’s that are sure to make any woman/mother/child/female feel special on 2/14 or any other day.

JEWELRY.  Alongside chocolates and roses, jewelry is a Valentine’s Day go-to!

Dogeared ($-$$) – Charming and elegant, these delicate and meaningful necklaces are the perfect touch for everyday wear and add love to a layered look.
