Valentine's Day Gift Guide- Vivid Hue Style

I have to admit, I'm not a huge Valentine's Day person.  Flower arrangements are typically doubled in price simply because of the occasion.  Restaurants are packed with lovey-dovey couples.   Singles hit the bars to trash talk love (or celebrate their independence).

With that said, Valentine's Day is just three weeks away!  While flowers are the obvious gift for a loved one or best friend for this occasion, why not consider something that has a bit more longevity?
I love the idea of giving a little something that will last well beyond February 14th.

A cheeky wine glass gift for the next girl-friend get together.  
A pastel pink gurgle pot or decorative coffee mug for the favorite teacher.  
A fun watermelon cooler bag for the soccer mom to keep juice boxes chilled for the game.  
A heart shaped duffle bag for a teenager's weekend sleep overs.  
A S'Well water bottle for him.  Or her.  Friend. Or boyfriend.  
Or, a set of chic elephant bookends or koi lotus pillows for you!  
Because even YOU deserve to treat yourself every so often.  

We have a range of gifts that are perfect for the day...and who says gifts have to be exchanged only between couples?  I love giving gifts when they're not expected.

Today, I'm showcasing a few of my favorite Vivid Hue Home items that are perfect for Valentine's Day or "just because" gifts.  

1. Koi + Lotus Leaf Chintz Pillow $95  |  2. Gold Elephant Bookends $42/pair | 3. "If the shoe fits, buy one in every color" Catchall Tray $20 | 4. Wine is My Valentine Glass  $14  | 5.

Now that I have littles, I like to give a little something to them on Valentine's Day.  They love getting a thoughtful care package and I try not to make it all about chocolates and sweets.  We have some items at Vivid Hue Home that would be the perfect "something" for your special little one.
