valentine's day gift guide

Happy Monday!! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We have been trying to soak up these last weeks as a family of four and rest + relax as much as possible. With February quickly approaching, I'm so excited to kick the week off with a Valentine's Day Gift Guide!

Valentine's Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. I'm not much of a roses & chocolate kinda girl (but give me alllllll the coffee icecream and tulips); I just love that it's an excuse to express the love I have for my husband, our girls, and friends & family even more than usual. This year I am especially excited for Valentine's since our baby girl is due just a few days beforehand. It wasn't planned but all 3 of our girls are holiday babies, which I just love!

Having three little girls, Valentine's is also one of my favorite holidays to celebrate & shop for. I set up our favorite gathre mat for the girls to make their own Valentine's and they had so much fun. Books, toys and snacks of course were also involved ;) We try to keep things pretty simple around here when it comes to gift-giving so I focus on giving the girls practical gifts that they'll use everyday, but still items that are fun and sentimental.

first up, baby girl.

I absolutely love the modern wooden teethers from Lexy Pexy and this cotton candy one is darling. All her eco-friendly, non-toxic teethers are handmade in NYC and I love that this one says "love at first bite," it just seems so fitting for Valentine's Day.

Knowing I was due right around V-Day, this Yarning Made bassinet heart blanket in hot pink was another gift I knew she would get a lot of use out of but that would also become a special keepsake as she grows.

I have shared our love of Sugarboo Designs many times before and this Sugarboo Designs love letter pillow is the perfect addition to a nursery or master bedroom for Valentine's Day. We have this set of canvases in our kitchen and the matching pillow is equally gorgeous and so cozy! Definitely a new favorite piece in our home.

Last but not least, these pink dotted oxfords from Piper Finn are so sweet. The Size 1s are so tiny, I can't wait to put her little feet in them once she is born!

next, penelope (16 months).

I've had my eye on these gorgeous boots from Adelisa & Co. for quite some time and when they arrived in the mail they were even more beautiful than I imagined. I absolutely love Adelisa & Co. for what they stand for, and these boots are handmade by artisans in Nicaragua with so much care and attention to detail. A portion of every purchase goes back to support the artisans and their families. We have this gorgeous handmade swing from Adelisa & Co. as well that Poppy just loved when she was younger and will definitely be put to use with our littlest as she grows. Such a fun piece for a playroom, nursery or even outside in the Spring & Summer.

Poppy absolutely loves puppies and hearing her say "woof woof" is just about the cutest thing ever. I've had this book pre-ordered since November and was excited to see the original release date was moved from 2/21 to 2/14, just in time to be a sweet Valentine's Day gift. Written by the author of another one of the girls' favorite books, Gaston, this new release looks so sweet and I can't wait to read it to all 3 of the girls all year long. Another favorite book of ours for Valentine's is Romeo & Juliet by BabyLit.

our oldest, olivia (3.5).

I shared last week on instagram that I had the opportunity to curate a Valentine's Day clip set in collaboration with Ryan & Wren. These are my go-to snap clips for the girls; I love how sleek and classy they are, that they stay in place and all the fun patterns and colors Mary offers in her shop. Naturally, Olivia's favorite colors are pink & purple (so Valentine's Day is definitely her kind of holiday!) so she'll be getting this set as part of her gift this year to share with Poppy. You can shop the full set here.

Another favorite hair accessory for Olivia (and Poppy) are Cute Bird Kids Classy bows, which come in three different sizes. I absolutely love the size of the largest ones for Olivia; they make such a statement in her thick curls and are so well made. I especially love that so many Cute Bird Kids bows are made of corduroy in such bright and vibrant colors and patterns (orchid corduroy bow pictured above on Olivia); there is just something so timeless and nostalgic about the texture and material.

One of my favorite things about Olivia, especially at this age, is her imagination and watching her play & pretend. These Maileg mice from Rose & Rex have quickly become some of her favorite toys and for Valentine's I added this Princess Mouse and the Pea set to her collection as well as the Little Sister Mouse for Penelope. Both are seriously so darling.

Last but not least, as Spring approaches I knew one of the things I was most looking forward to doing with Olivia was taking her puddle jumping. It's just a childhood requirement, isn't it?! Mud, messes and just letting them be little. Of course for that I wanted to get her some classic Hunter boots, something I've had my eye on for a long time. After finding the exact black matte style I wanted in her size, I knew they would be a perfect gift that would last her through the rest of the year and into the next and then be passed down to Penelope once Olivia outgrows them. For Valentine's, I also love the hot pink ones. I love knowing the pieces we decide to invest in will get years & years of use with all three of our girls.

Hope this gives you some fun ideas for your tiny Valentines! Only two weeks away!! Hopefully by then we'll have our tiniest Valentine in our arms! XO
