Valetines.. or should I say, GALentines

For the fourth year in a row, my husband is headed up to the woods of Maine for his annual guys weekend. It is a serious man weekend. No running water, no heat, no cell phone service = no fun in my book! There is at least a cabin with electricity, a wood stove and outhouse and a few beds. With the men away, a few girlfriends and I spend most of the weekend together, inspired by Leslie Knope’s ‘Galentines’ tradition. There is usually a few beverages involved, crafts, attempts to work out and a snow storm. With the weekend upon us I figured I would share a few of my favorite Valentines Day gifts!


Mark & Graham heart shaped paperweight. A few different options and colors available.


A unique piece of art from Etsy – always have to support the makers when we can!


Set of 4 Valentines Heart plates from my favorite, Crate & Barrel


For Her: Cashmere infinity scarf from J. Crew – a great way to add a pop of pink to an outfit, and who doesn’t love cashmere?!



Dogeared ‘Chain Heart’ Pendant Necklace from Nordstroms


For Him: Wicked Good Moccasins from LL Bean With this weekend being one of the colder on record, they will come in handy.


Bose Soundlink Bluetooth speaker also from Nordstroms



These are just a few ideas – hope everyone has a lovely Valentines/Galentines!
