Valentine’s day Gifts for Him

February 13, 2016

Sweatshirt/wallet/headphones

InEar Headphones/shaving kit/ cup {another option}

And now is the boys turn! I try to be creative and give something that makes sense to their loved one. My hubby loves the brand Vince and I found him this sweatshirt that’s perfect for any season, and the quality is amazing! How about a shaving kit from the Art of Shaving? Men tend to shave regularly right?  Well this is a bit of a fancy brand and the travel kit is a good intro to the brand without spending too much. Electronics are always a safe bet, headphones from Beats are super popular and an item that any man would love! A good wallet is a must, and this card holder wallet from Louis Vuitton in Damier Cobalt is perfect because is small and practical and oh so fancy, and just like the ladies, Gift cards! If not on a card holder, get a cool cup and put some in there, for maybe Starbucks, iTunes or Amazon. Most stores have them now, just go with the one he loves! Its practical and perfect for that last minute present, for when you want to help with a big purchase or when you just don’t know what to give. Anyways enjoy your day, and most important show that person you love that you care, and if the budget is limited, how about making him a nice candle lit dinner, as I said its all about showing your love! kisses and until next time!

Love,

Paola

Y no pueden faltar para los chicos! A mi me gusta ser creativa con mis regalos y dar cosas que se que le van a gustar a la persona. A mi esposo le gusta mucho la marca Vince, y le compre este suéter que es ligero para que lo use en cualquier temporada, la marca es muy buena y de buena calidad. Un kit de la marca The Art of Shaving es buena idea, todos se rasuran no? o bueno la mayoría jaja y esta marca es super buena y mas sofisticada, pero con el kit de viaje no gastas mucho. Una buena billetera como esta de Louis Vuitton en Damier Cobalt es super nice y sofisticada, además de practica. Y al igual que con las chicas, tarjetas de regalo! Si no quieres hacerlo con un tarjetero, compra una taza y se la pones allí, puede ser de iTunes, Starbucks, Amazon… todas las tiendas las venden y así le das de la que mas le guste a el! Las gift cards son perfectas cuando no hayas que dar, o cuando el quiere hacer una compra grande  y así le ayudas, o cuando dejaste el shopping del regalo a ultima hora! No te olvides que lo mas importante, es demostrar tu amor por esa persona especial, y si el presupuesto esta super limitado… hazle una cenita cute! anyways, que te la pases genial! Besos y hasta la próxima!

Love,

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her

February 12, 2016

Sweatshirt/ Perfumelotion/wallet

Ring/Card Holder

I’m back! After a couple of interesting months, where a new job, graduation paper and family took my life, I’m now coming back to something I love and thats blogging! It’s all in the organisation and thats my main goal for 2016!!! But anyways, lets talk about Valentine’s day! I’ve been married for a while but you can never let the details go away, I put together a few options for presents that I think are girl “approved”.  A good wallet is always cool, or a cozy sweatshirt like this one from Wildfox. I really love jewellery and I have my eyes on this ring from Monica vinader, I don’t think she’s has much retail presence in the USA yet, but here in England she’s is one of the most popular.

I love Jo Malone, they are such a lovely perfumery and you can mix the scents too, this is one of my fave. I think we all love flowers, so its always a good cute idea especially as an add on present {or a just because detail!}. I would say go with something different than roses, no? like Peonies! And since I’m quite the practical person, I love gift cards, so why not get a cool card holder and put some gift cards on it and offer a day of shopping for her? I would love that! Even though my hubby is not big fan of shopping hahaha. Big kisses for all and until next time.

Love,

Paola

Estoy de regreso!!! he pasado unos meses un tanto complicados, entre trabajo nuevo, mi paper de graduación y asuntos familiares, pero estoy de regreso porque escribir en el blog es algo que me apasiona, y todo esta en la organización! Mi meta para 2016! Pero bueno, el día de san valentin ya esta aquí, y les tengo algunas ideas para las chicas. Una buena cartera es siempre buena idea, o un top cute como este de la marca Wildfox, a mi me gusta mucho la joyería y le he puesto el ojo a este anillo de Monica Vinader, ella no tiene mucha presencia en USA pero aquí en Inglaterra es super popular.

Me encantan los perfumes de Jo Malone, y lo mas genial es que puedes mezclar los aromas, y este es mi favorito. Yo creo que a todas nos gustan las flores, y es un detalle lindo que puede ser un extra, pero yo digo que regala algo diferente a rosas, como estas Peonies! son lindas! Y la verdad yo soy bastante practica, por eso me parece que dar un tarjetero con unas tarjetas de regalo es super cool, y ofrecerle un día de shopping con ella! a mi me encantaría ese regalo, aunque a mi esposo no le gusta mucho el shopping pero ni modo hahaha. Besos y hasta la próxima!

love,

Paola
