Not a box of chocolates this Valentine’s Day <3

As much as everyone and anyone loves chocolate, since I’ve pushed Girl Scout cookies on anyone with a pulse lately, I’ll let up on the calories and switch it up for Valentine’s Day this year with some unique items via some of my favorite Etsy shops. I love giving hand made gifts made by people with an entrepreneurial spirit, hence a natural infatuation with Etsy. Here’s (in no particular order) a highlight reel for gifts I’m giving the ladies (big and small) in my life! (…No idea what to give Phil or Hudson yet…)

East Meets West Soap’s “Love Ewe” soap set

Let me say how amazing this adorable set smells! It’s also SUPER kind on my winter-ravaged hands (Must….must get back to Florida…), and leaves them soft. Made of goat milk, lavender & tea tree essential oils, this set is a now-favorite in our house. Straight from Vermont from the East Meets West Family Farm, how our family loves EWE!

Maks Chic Bowtique’s Toddler Diva Bow Bling Chunky Bracelet

Yep, I’m that mom. The one who will look for just about anything BUT candy to gift her kids. Look no further! Maks Chic Bowtique has you covered. If the little fashionista (or toddler diva) in your life is like mine, anything that sparkles and shines makes her SMILE! Tea adores her new bling! She’s spreading the love. (Her middle name is Love! No joke!)

Sweet Tee’s Apparel‘s Love slouchy shirt

Love is in the air! And it’s the message on this slouchy lightweight French Terry sweatshirt from Sweet Tee Apparel! Super soft, comfy and versatile, I’m going to be wearing this one all year round, once I pull it off my gorgeous sister. Want to switch it up? It also comes in pink and gray.

Jamberry Nails

Nope, these aren’t from ESTY, but you can check them out here. Remember when I said there is one thing I like to give myself? Jamberry nails! Jamberry nails stay on at least 2 weeks, and I punish them with however many hand washes X 3 kids a day + dishes + photography +life in general. They’re super easy to apply, there are a ton of styles to choose from. Happy Valentines day to me! (And to you!)
