Valentine’s Day Gift Round-up @BetterCT

Always love visiting the folks @BetterCT and we gathered some really interesting gift ideas for mom, dad and the kids!

Jewelry is always a nice gift for mom, but why not make it a one of a kind design. From Carved Creations  their doodle pendant is one that mom will cherish.  At $189 you can customize your design – submit a drawing (hint, hint… dad have your kids do this for mom) and Carved Creations will transform it into a necklace.  Check out their Facebook page as people are submitting designs for likes!  I love the material as it is heavy:  It is made from PurLuxium which is Carved Creations fine jewelers grade stainless steel. You can also choose the shape you want from a square, triangle or rectangle and choose the color of the leather cord.  They also have other great gift ideas – rings, bracelets and other necklaces. Check out their site as they have the boldest designs and most contemporary looks in the personalized jewelry industry.

If you are heading out for date night for Valentine’s Day try a fun pink lipstick to brighten up! We love the Hourglass line at sephora or online. Hourglass Opaque Rouge liquid lipstick comes in several bright pink and red shades, perfect for Valentine’s Day.  Opaque Rouge is renowned for being long-lasting—even The Wall Street Journal identified it as one of the best long-wear lipsticks!  We are always on the lookout for more natural make-up and this line is great. It’s free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates and lanolin.  Starting at $28.00.

Chocolate is a great idea for a gift and who can resist those truffles from Lindt!  The The LINDOR Truffles Mini Gift Heart is the perfect gift to share– at an affordable price.  The Mini Gift Heart is available in new, limited edition milk chocolate shell with a white chocolate center or milk chocolate LINDOR truffles at $4.99. The LINDOR Gift Heart is so cute and every box is filled with smooth melting LINDOR Truffles. The LINDOR Gift Heart is available in a 5.5 oz heart with milk or assorted truffles and in an 8.5 oz heart filled with milk chocolate truffles. Price ranges from $7.99 – $9.99. Their NEW! Gourmet Truffles Heart comes in a romantic heart-shaped box filled with double-dipped gourmet truffles in six luxurious flavors ̶ milk chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla and dark orange. At $9.99 it is affordable.

For the kids I love to bake with them or at least try a new recipe. From the makers of Glee Gum  the Make Your Own Chocolate Kit is $13.95.  Anytime you involve the kids with treat making it’s so much fun! The Make Your Own Chocolate Kit offers a unique, affordable way to make delicious, dark chocolate from scratch, right at home.

A red outfit with matching headbands is a must for the younger kids. We love the adorable headbands and clips for Valentine’s day from Lizzie, Izzie and James   Felt and yarn never looked so cute.

I like to put together a box or bag of goodies with treats, stickers, crafts, and my kids will love it. Shop iparty as they have the best selection of goodies. I put together the treat box, the baking box and the craft box!

Enjoy your Valentine’s day!
