Valentine’s Day Gift Guide For Her

Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Her #giftguide Those who know me know that I love a good gift, which means I love any occasion where I might receive a gift. Valentine’s Day definitely qualifies as one of those days, and I must admit it’s up there on my list of favorite holidays. This year, the husband and I set a $100 limit for our presents to each other. And lucky for him, many of the gift ideas in the collage above are under that limit. 😉

I really love this Bella J. candle for mom, and guys these heart-shaped Kate Spade earrings are great for your girlfriend. This “Sweetheart Minimergency Kit” is a great idea if you’re trying to just grab a smaller gift for a close friend. And for those willing to spend a little more on their lady, I love this Roberto Coin cross necklace (which I own in silver, it’s a great, classic piece) and this Valentino crossbody purse. The Hanky Panky underwear above (number 11) are also super adorable.

Happy Shopping!



You can find item Number 6 here and item Number 7 here.

Y’all the holidays are approaching very quickly, and I don’t know about you, but it always takes me forever to find just the right gifts for the men in my life. I try to think outside of the box and that can be tough, but lucky for me this year, No. 4 St. James came to my rescue!

If you’ve never heard of this awesome company, they’re a new lifestyle brand featuring the best products from the best brands Texas has to offer. And not only does No.4 St. James sell the best of Texas, they also celebrate everything Texas through beautiful photography and stories. Even their name celebrates Texas’ unique history. As we native Texans loooove to point out, Texas used to be its own nation and when we were, we had embassies in different countries around the globe. Our London embassy was located at No. 4 St. James’s Street, hence, the name of this company. Pretty clever throwback name if you ask me.

I recently stopped by their showroom and checked out the products for myself and fell so in love that I had to compile some of my favorites to share with y’all.

First, I know you can’t smell through your computer screen but I so wish you could because the Moonshine Cologne is the real deal. And Esquire Magazine agrees – they just named it one of the best new colognes out there. A little bit peppery with hints of leather and tobacco, it’s every bit manly. I also can’t get enough of the Copper Mexican Mule Mugs and the Gentlemen’s Glassware Whiskey Glasses. They’re perfect for accessorizing a bar cart (I say that because I think they’re much too pretty to be tucked away in a cabinet). Finally, I have a wee crush on the Republic of Texas Passport. As you’ll see in my post tomorrow, I love to travel Texas, and this passport offers a super fun way to keep a little diary of my journeys across the state. It’s also a great item for a coffee table as it’s a beautiful conversation starter.

Every one of these products has such a cool story, and they’re all made by artisans across Texas. So, definitely take the time to visit the links above to learn more about each one.

You can order everything online from their website, or via any of the links above. For your order to be delivered in time for Christmas, you need to order by December 19 (all orders over $50 ship for free!). And get this – they pack many products in raw, Texas cotton from Burton Farmers Gin. Now that’s authentically Texan!

Happy Shopping!


P.S. For those of you in Austin, No. 4 St. James has a showroom and through the month of December it will be open every MondayFriday from 10am-4pm. Their showroom is located inside the Canopy Complex on 916 Springdale Road, Building 2, #106B. I know they’d love for you to see some of their products in person, so feel free to stop by!
