Valentines Day Gifts For Him

I don’t know about you but I find it incredibly difficult to shop for my husband. He has everything he needs and barely anything that he wants (p.s. i wonder what that feels like!). So besides finding new experiences to enjoy as a family, or making arrangements for a date night, what do you get men? You can try this or do something more personal.

I sometimes wonder whether I should go down the personalised route as they can always be a win with anyone. I was talking to my friend who lives in the Netherlands the other day and she said she was thinking about getting her husband some face socks or as they call them over there, sokken met foto! I thought that was such a good idea, I wonder how my husband would take receiving a pair of socks with my face all over them! But then after talking to some other friends I found the personalization didn’t stop there and that you could even customize underwear and Put any face on boxer. This made me giggle even more so I might use this as a little extra gift for him this Valentine’s Day.

Yes, one more thing that I heard of was a customized rubix cube, which can be purchased from online gift shops. Apparently, a Custom Photo Rubiks Cube can have special pictures printed on it, which can be twisted and turned to return it to it’s original state. Additioanlly, every side of this cube can have a solid pattern on it.
Anyway, I’ve had a real think about this and I think I’ve come up with a few cool options. So, here are some gift ideas he is sure to love! I would still try to make that date night happen though…

1. Friends don’t let friends have floppy collars. Get your man some adorable “Love You” collar stays from If you haven’t discovered collar stays yet, you have to try them, they will change your life! Or at least the life of your button-down shirts.

2. I don’t know any guy who doesn’t secretly dream of being a stunt-double/action hero. The Go Pro is a fun way to make him realize this dream, even if it is only used for its intended purpose once, then for more creative endeavors like – attached to the dog’s collar or the toddler’s bike.

3. “Balls of Steel” is a catchy name for these steel drink chillers – and part of the proceeds of sales go to support testicular cancer research. I’d cheers to that!

4. Give him the gift of style with a Trunk Club gift card. A stylist will pick out clothes for an occasion, a season, or whenever they’d like. There are no membership fees – they only pay for what they buy. For a busy guy, or a guy that doesn’t particularly enjoy shopping, this club is definitely worth joining!

5. This hearts bow-tie from Vineyard Vines is such a cute gift – maybe he could even wear it taking you out for a romantic Valentine’s day dinner?

Last week we took a quick trip to escape the snow for some sunshine in Key Largo, Florida☀️ We spent every moment possible outside, Tom and Adam got their Scuba Diver PADI certification (yay!) while Sophia and I spent our days either swimming or drawing marine life and landscapes. This was my first trip after my sister passed last November, and even though I look so happy here, there were so many moments I felt the grief and sadness, as if it happened just yesterday. I am still figuring out how I want to show up in this space, as I have changed so much as a person since the loss. I just don’t feel called to post some of the things I shared before. Maybe that will change someday, or maybe it will just naturally evolve into something new. I think I will take this year to just process it all. (Even the idea of taking an entire year to think through something is a huge shift for my usually hyperactive type A personality) My focus at the moment is just living in the moment with my family and friends, spending time doing things that make me happy and healthy. I hope to share some of that journey here with you ~ thanks for following along ❤️
I had planned to shoot this outfit in collaboration with @lenacoutureofficial right before my dear sister passed away. Saba, the designer, was more than understanding if I didn’t want to anymore - but after thinking on it for a while I decided I wanted to - in my sister’s honor 💗 She was always my biggest hype woman. When i would feel like I’m not good enough or that I should quit (which was often) she would tell me I was unique and great and to keep it up. When I think of my sister, beauty and love is all that she embodied in her being. She expressed that on the outside also - as she loved to wear everything glam, bright & colorful, and full of bling. Hair done, nails done, everything did - that was Nusrat. For this shoot I took the time to get glam after a long hiatus - and makeup and hair took so long because I think I forgot how to do it, but afterwards I was surprised how I felt transformed. When I wore this gorgeous outfit that I know was designed with such love and incredible attention to detail by @lenacoutureofficial, I felt all of that beauty - like a walking piece of art, and very much at peace. Thank you so much to @divmophoto for capturing the feeling so well 💕
Ski weekend with my favorites ❄️❄️ So proud of Sophia for skiing on her own for the first time!
There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

Cozy for a coffee date ☕️
French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!
