3 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas Under $50 #Vaseline #RosyLips #ad @VaselineBrand

I am kind of excited about Valentine's Day this year mostly because it falls on a Saturday and Hubs and I are going out....sans kids. It's also a wonderful holiday to receive (and give) sweet gifts. Since I've gotten older, although I cherish occasional expensive gifts, I've learned that experiences give lasting memories and an awesome small gift goes a long way. 



I have a major sweet tooth. The Valerie Confections are delectable and the offerings are perfect for your loved one on this special day. An 18 piece Valentine's Chocolate Box ($40) is filled with an assortment of molded chocolate hearts; Red Hearts made of bittersweet chocolate with almond toffee pieces wrapped in red foil, Golden Hearts filled with bittersweet ganache and detailed with edible 23k gold, and Caramelia Hearts filled with a creamy milk chocolate ganache with notes of rich caramel. 

If you want to splurge a wee bit more, pick up a box of the Rose Petal Petit Fours ($50). They are like morsels of heaven in your mouth and since they are topped with candied rose petals, it's like a 2-in-1! 



If your love is obsessed with beauty products, you absolutely need to pick up the new Vaseline® Lip Therapy® Rosy Heart Jar ($2.29). It deeply moisturizes for soft, rose-tinted lips. Featuring a rose/vanilla/red berry scent, it’s the perfect product to perfect your pout just in time for Valentine’s Day! The limited Bejeweled Vaseline® Lip Therapy® Rosy Heart Jars are adorned with fine European crystals and with a heart on the lid. You can pick up these bling jars at Kitson or ShopKitson.com. Imagine all the jealous stares when you whip this out of your purse and quench your lips! Add it to the Valerie Petit Fours and you have a really fabulous Valentine's Day gift!


I have recently become aware of the buzz around ALEX AND ANI bracelets. The designs are beautiful and unique and the best part is selecting your favorites to create a wonderful arm candy stack. I have pretty thin wrists and the average bangle tends to be a bit large. However, the ALEX AND ANI bracelets are perfect since they self-adjust to fit around your hand and then close to fit your wrist comfortably. I am hooked with the Bamboo Beaded Bangle ($38), Nile Beaded Bangle ($38) and Open Love Charm Bangle ($28) received from ALEX AND ANI. Their new Infinite Love Collection ($28-$48) is drool-worthy and a must have addition (or start) to your jewelry box. Start with one or a few and build from there - you can't go wrong.



What are you planning for Valentine's Day? What do you think about my gift ideas?
