Ways to Make Valentine’s Day Feel Special

Before you start adding things to your cart, ask yourself how your kid/spouse/significant other feels most loved. Is it quality time? Is it acts of service? Is it words of encouragement? Try to pair any gift you buy with a bit of a personal touch. Here are some ideas:

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Kids

Doubleside Toffee

What a fun, unique gift this would be for kids or any person you love! You could support this small business and mail it to anyone as a special surprise.

Doubleside Toffee Company is an online candy company that makes the best chocolate-covered almond toffee, toffee popcorn, and savory almonds. They handcraft these gourmet, gluten-free treats that taste good and do good through donations to local, faith-based non-profits. Their goal is to make a difference in other’s lives and the community around us. They support Young Life, a youth ministry, and For Her, an organization supporting sexually exploited women in San Antonio, TX.

The toffee is double-coated with a blend of dark and milk chocolate that perfectly compliments the toffee and satisfies all chocolate lovers. It also has the perfect crunch- it’s not too hard to bite into and never chewy. Fresh toffee is best eaten straight from the freezer and stays fresh for several months!

Order now and see why everyone says this is the best toffee ever! Use code TH2021 for 10% off your purchase now through 2/10/21.

Hot Chocolate Bombs

Kids (of all ages) are OBSESSED with these. Pour hot milk over them and watch the chocolate melt away to reveal cocoa mix, marshmallows, and more goodies inside! You’ll probably have the most luck with finding these locally. (We recommend Plume, if you live in our neck of the woods.)

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Mom

Cherish Stack Rings

I am totally crushing on this jewelry company, Windblown. I seriously LOVE everything on their site. They have effortless jewelry for your everyday look which is what I love. It’s minimalist but still beautiful. I had a hard time picking just one thing for this gift guide but since their Cherish Stack is 21% off right now (because of 2021), I thought that would be a great one to feature. All the rings are 14k gold-filled which means they will not tarnish or turn. They are perfectly safe to literally never take off–working out, in water, sleeping, etc. 

If rings aren’t your thing, I highly recommend hopping over to their site and browsing around. I am also eyeing out their earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. Seriously, I love it all.

Don’t know your ring size? See their Sizing guide here.

Dazzle Dry Nail System 

By far the best nail polish I’ve ever used. It stays on so much longer than even quality brands like OPI. I got the starter set last year for Christmas and have pretty much used Dazzle Dry exclusively since then. Make sure to get on their email list for promos!
