Simple, Last Minute Valentine's Day DIY Gifts

With Valentine's Day coming up, I'm thinking about ways to gift my husband, Zachary, and I bet you are thinking about how to gift the man in your life, too.

What can we do to bless these amazing men in our lives & show them how much they are loved?! Especially when so little time is left before Valentine's! Here's a few ideas for you that I posted a few years ago. :)

An Encouragement Jar
Our first year of dating, I made Zachary a bag of all the things I loved about him.
 Everyone loves to hear the ways they are loved and we should never tire of telling our special men how wonderful they are. This year I made him an encouragement jar with 75 reasons I love him. Don't ask me why the number 75! You can pick any number, really.


A Box of Dates
Valentine's Day is a good excuse to start a date box.
Fill a box with fun date ideas or just simple ways to spend time together.



Truth or Dare Sticks
Going with the theme of fun things to do together, how about a classic; truth or dare. It may be a little corny but still fun. Make your truths and dares as naughty or nice as you'd like.

Homemade Massage Oil
This gift is fun & easy to make. Plus, it comes with an extra bonus-- It probably ensures you'll be getting a massage, too! A gift that gives back to you! :) Nice! 
But remember, this is Valentines' Day, a day devoted to love! So, make sure your one and only gets a massage, too!

Valentine's Massage Oil Recipe
6 tsp of grape seed, coconut or canola oil
8 drops of an essential oil of choice 
(lavender, mint, rose hip and jasmine are great, relaxing choices!)
Mix & store in a dark glass jar. 
Tie a ribbon around it and give it to your man!

As you can see above, all of these ideas are fun, thoughtful & super easy. Obviously, you can make them look better or use nicer materials. I made the above while in China, so paper & markers it was!

Wednesday Wishes: Stitch Fix Edition

Below is basically what I'm dying to have in my closet RIGHT NOW, as well as, pieces that I most definitely would be requesting for my next Fix, if I were you! :) 

 

This buttery faux suede tee is amazing! And I'm wanting it bad! I love the subtly sexy V-Neck & the versatility of this top! Dress it up with black jeans, heeled booties & a moto jacket for drinks with the girls. Dress it down with a pair of boyfriend jeans & ankle boots. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! 

 This Pixley Bixby Bird Print Blouse is such a beautiful take on a simple black & white blouse. I love the adorable hummingbird print. It can be paired with white skinny jeans & a coral cardigan for Spring or tucked in to a black pencil skirt with pumps for the office.


 
I'm needing these burgundy ponte pants bad! They're perfect for styling under all of my favorite long sweaters & tees. They're also thick enough that I could get away with wearing shorter tops with them, too. I'd love to transition these versatile pants with a floral blouse & blush flats for Spring. Blush & burgundy?! Oh yes! Rock it. :) 

 
Flare jeans are back in style this season. Thank the Lord this renewed denim is on trend because they're super flattering! I love the versatility of them & how they easily dress up your casual day look. Pair them with chunky closed wedges & a flowy blouse. Another great way to style them is with a pair of heels, a tucked in top & a skinny belt to elongate your body even further. 
 Obsessed with this burgundy robe coat. Obsessed. It's such a closet staple & a statement piece all in one. This style of coat flatters every figure, too! It's basically an all around win, win. I could care less that TX chilly weather is just about over-I want it! :) Please, and thank you.
 Coated denim is the edgy girls dream come true. Or maybe it's just my dream come true? I have yet to full fill this denim trend hole in my closet & it's getting a little sad for me. ;) Dress them down with a simple white tee & black flats for an effortlessly casual chic look. The possibilities of dressing these up are, of course, endless. Style them with a tank & fringe necklace for drinks. Pair them with a flowy floral blouse & nude pumps for a flirty dinner out look.
What coated denim is to edgy chics, faux suede is to the boho ladies. Faux suede is oh so buttery that you'll want to wear your clothes inside out. Wear this dress to the office with a printed blazer & heels. Style it running errands with a pair of gladiator sandals (should you be in the South right now where it's blazing hot already) & a long, boho necklace. Style it up north with an over-sized sweater cardigan, leggings & ankle boots.

Last, love of the day that I wanted to share with you all is this faux shearling detail draped jacket in a winter cream. It's gorgeous. I love the monochromatic look right now of pairing creams & whites. Style this over a white blouse with white jeans & nude pumps for a fresh, winter look!
