As a follow-up to my popular holiday shop small gift guide, this Valentine’s Day Gift Guide features a variety of thoughtful tokens of love for the Valentine’s in your life including baubles and gifts by fabulous Chicago-based creators.
Copper-Plated Heart Cookie Cutter (Photo Credit: Sur La Table) Not into Valentine’s Day gifting? Surprise your loves with something as simple as a delectable and heart-shaped PB &J. (Similar cookie cutter set in red available from Target)
“Live What You Love” Sweatshirt (Photo Credit: House of Shan). This “Teddy” style sweatshirt, made from organic and recycled materials, is 100% huggable and is available in four cute hues: blush, creme, navy and black. Another reason to ADORE this pick: $5 from every purchase goes to support House of Good Shepherd Women and Children’s Shelter that provides a safe haven for families that are victims of domestic violence. Order by February 9 for delivery by Valentine’s Day. (Hint: Sweatshirts run one size small so order one size up!)
Monogrammed Baseball Hat (Photo Credit: Rey To Z). Monogrammed and custom embroidered caps from Chicago-based company Rey To Z are for babes, kids and adults. Go extra: Add a personalized embroidery on the back of each cap which are available in more than a dozen colors and prints.
Swarovski Crystal Heart Set. The coolest necklaces for sisters, BFFs or for a “mommy and me” look by Chicago-area jewelry designer Bella Colletta. Order by February 10 or visit Wild Willow in Highland Park, IL!
In My Heart: A Book About Feelings and Love From The Crayons (Photo Credit: Amazon). Don’t you just love LOVE? These books, beautifully illustrated and brimming with color, talk about love and all the feelings in a fun way for kids.
Long John PJs in Organic Cotton (Photo Credit: Hanna Anderson) Is there ever a reason not to invest in another pair of cozy PJs? The Hanna Anderson Valentine’s Day prints are bold, fun and available in sizes for everyone in the fam (and on sale for 30% off now!).
