If you are looking for the perfect gift for your kids and spouse this Valentines Day, we’ve put together a little list to make your shopping that much easier.  Check out some of our picks, and see what strikes your fancy.


For your littlest Valentine, head to Hallmark.  You can do quite a bit of shopping there, but what we loved was the Love-a-Saurus Techno Plush, new for this year.  This cutie roars and dances when you push his button.  Perfect for boys or girls (and even “big kids”), this bright red dino will break it down to “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer, which kids will groove to, and moms and dads will wax nostalgic. It is $33, or $18 when you buy 3 cards. You can also find an assortment of adorable itty bittys- sweet toys that fit in the palm of your hand- including new Thing 1 and Thing 2. Your favorite troublemakers from Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat, with Valentine hearts for their antennae to be festive for the holiday.  They are available for $7 each. Of course, you can always get an assortment of cards perfect for Valentines Day (or any occasion) at Hallmark.  This year they also have new cards from the Signature collection, itty bitty Valentines (to go with your itty bitty stuffed toys) as well as from  Hallmark designers Justin & Tuesday Spray, which are just beautiful.  You can pick up these items at and at Hallmark Gold Crown stores.


For tweens, teens, and spouses, we loved the lovely gifts from Oragami Owl. Not only is the jewelry beautiful, but it’s unique because you customize it for the one you love (and it’s much more affordable then some other lines). Choose the color, size, shape, and more, as well as the charms that go inside and/or outside, the length and type of chain used, and all the other details. You can even add Swarovski crystals for a bit more color and sparkle. Origami Owl lets you pick out items that highlight special memories about your Valentine, and will be a truly cherished gift for that reason- it’s about the bond you two share. You can choose from necklaces, bracelets, wrap bracelets (a hot trend right now), lockets, and more at Prices vary, check out the site and choose the item(s) that you like best for the ladies in your life.


Another option for the girls and women in your life is the environmentally-friendly and non-toxic Duri nail polish collection. Also safe from DBP, Tolune, and Formaldehyde, you can buy these separately or in a cute Valentine’s Day set of four, in a sweetheart box ready for gift giving.

While there are more then 250 shades of Duri (sounds like a book, yes?), the Valentine’s Day collection includes “every day is a Valentine” red, “cupid rules” pink, the pastel “iced roses”, “unexpected kiss” in a light purple-pink, and “sweetheart”, a bright shade of orangy-red. This is a great gift for the female of nearly any age in your life- most women, from the littlest girl on up, love their mani-pedi’s. Grab singles for 6$ each, or the gift set for $24 at


For the coffee lover in your life, take a look at the Trudeau espresso maker. This bedside pot makes getting your morning java that much easier with a convenient stainless-steel stove top espresso maker. Just fill it up, brew your beans in true Italian style, and serve. It uses pressure for the water, and has a safety release valve for the steam to be released from. The handle stays cool to the touch, so you don’t need to worry about burns. It’s also portable, so you can take it with you anywhere you go- you can use it for regular coffee if you would like as well, making it a good camping tool. It cleans easily in the dishwasher, and has a 5 year warranty as well, so it is well worth the price of $70 at .


For the nerdy love in your life, head to and check out all the fun and funky wares they have in stock, perfect for those with a taste for the “dark side”, “Trekkies”, “brown coats” and more. Don’t know what I’m talking about, but know someone who will? Think Geek is for your shopping needs. If they love tech, comic books, or sci-fi shows, you will find a bounty of fun and unique items they soon won’t be able to live without.

For a fun twist on classic Valentine’s Day gifts, we love the ThinkGeek: iPhone Heart Charging Cable. Who needs another box of heart shaped candies? This cable goes with iPhone 5/6, but it also works with our iPad. It has 8 LED tiny, plastic, red hearts that also light up when it is plugged in and charging. One end goes into the i-device, the other into a USB port. It’s 46” long, and is available at for $14.99. Show how strong and bright your love is, and that it’s endlessly renewable.


Tired of the same old, same old floral arrangements? How much would they love to receive a Star Wars Bouquet. There are 3 options available, and they arrive wrapped and ready to be given. Each bouquet of nine “long stemmed” officially licensed Star Wars characters- in the Assortment (Boba Fett, Darth Vader, C-3PO, R2-D2 , two Ewoks , and three Stormtroopers), the Darth Vader bouquet (Darth Vader and eight Stormtroopers), or the Droid (three each of R2-D2, R2-Q5, and R2-D9) bouquet. They are available for $60 at for the assortment bouquet, each bouquet has a different link, but they and many other gifts can all be found at . These fun gifts are sure to be a conversation piece, and something to make all the other geeks jealous. Who has the best spouse? Yeah, you know it.
