Valentine’s Gifts That Aren’t Lame.


Valentine’s Day is just a couple weeks away. In the spirit of the much beloved (and hated!) holiday, I have rounded up some of my favorite gift ideas. So… treat yourself, or send this post to your guy! Valentine’s Day gifts can admittedly be a little cheesy – I’ve combed my favorite sites to find some gifts that are 100% not-tacky… things you’ll actually really want!


Stripe Finds // Little discoveries you'll love

Bundle Up

My girlfriends are always shocked when I tell them I buy nearly all of my beanies at Forever 21. Their classic “skater beanie” is my favorite. It fits amazingly, is super warm, and comes in 15 colors! Neon yellow, hot pink, ice blue… and the best part? They’re only $2.80 each!


This is, most definitely, the perfect striped t-shirt. The thick fabric won’t cling, and it’s incredibly well made (especially when you consider its under-$30 price tag.) It’s available in five color combinations, and while I’m partial to the cream/navy, I love them all.


I discovered Mister Marvelous by Byredo, rather accidentally: I had a bunch of samples and thought I was putting on something else. Alas, I fell in love with the warm and woody fragrance. Though it’s meant for the boys, the neroli flower + green lavender make it a nice choice for the ladies, too!


I’ve long been a fan of Perpetual Shade’s sleep masks (see my post about them here!) and was delighted to discover “PS,” their less expensive line. Lined in cotton (instead of silk), this rose gold oversized sleep mask is luxe… without breaking the bank.
