Gotta admit, though Valentine's Day can be a little over-cheesy and I am a firm believer in writing love notes on the regular rather than just on one day of the year, there is something sweet about walking around the city and seeing so many people on their way home with bouquets of flowers.
My vote for non-cheesy and so-thoughtful gifts for someone you love? Lovely & simple personalized jewelry. Here are some of my faves:
Courtney Williams runs the Etsy Shop AdorablySimpleDesign and makes these sweet hammered metal rings with personalized initials on them. How cute for sisters or for your mom with a ring for each of her children!
Beth Macri makes these awesome hidden message necklaces that look so polished and refined. You can choose from gold, silver and rose gold characters, and they look great mix & matched.
A long time favourite of mine, COATT makes personalized morse code jewelry. They have various silk or chain necklaces to choose from, as well as bracelets or constellation (zodiac) patterns. These are so delicate and dainty and are a win for any special event if you ask me.
