Valentine's Day Favorites

So we've got about a week until Valentine's Day! The day people either love, or love to hate. Even before I had a significant other (which was most of my life, Adam and I started dating when I was 22, and he was my first and only boyfriend. But that's a story for another day), I always just thought Valentine's Day was a lot of fun! All of the pink and red and candy and cute little cards passed out to classmates back in the day! Here are some of my favorite Valentine's themed goodies this year:

1. Starbucks Love Coffee Tumbler

I saw this in Starbucks the other day and I thought it was just so cute! It would be a perfect gift for a coffee lover! I couldn't find it to order on their website, but I know they have it in stores! Just, you know, if anyone wants to get it for me I wouldn't be sad about it...

2. Red Velvet Oreo Brownies

Sally's Baking Addiction

I made these for work on Valentine's Day last year and they were a huge hit! Layers of red velvet brownie, cookies and cream buttercream, and chocolate ganache topped with oreo pieces....ummm, what was I saying again??

3. Red Rose Dress

Ok, so I wouldn't like wearing it this short, I would prefer if it would come to my knees, but wouldn't this be SO cute for Valentine's Day?? Either for a date or a lunch with the girls! The red heels and cardigan just complete the look so perfectly, don't you think? 

4. Stud Muffin 

Is this not the cutest?? This would be a perfect, easy but thoughtful gift for the hubs! Bake up his favorite muffins, print out the tag, and voila! Grab the free printable for the tag here! She has some other really cute tags and gift ideas that any guy would love! 

5. Coffee Filter Heart Wreath

Tutorial here!

This is just SO pretty and fairly easy from the looks of the tutorial! (no I did not actually make this wreath, but I just like the idea of this wreath. That's pretty much how most of my Pinterest craft finds go) 

So there you have it! Some fun Valentine's goodies to get you in a Valentine's mood! Or not. Your call. 

What are your favorite Valentiney (totally just made that word up) finds? How do you feel about Valentine's Day? 

(I just realized I used the word "cute" or some variation thereof approximately eleventy times in this post. Oh well, not going back and changing it now)

  1. Stopping by from the link-up! That wreath is adorable! I should put it on my diy list.

  2. Happy Friday! Those red velvet brownies look amazing! Great finds. Neither of us are big into Valentine's Day. It feels like more of a Hallmark holiday. We actually prefer to celebrate either before or after because every restaurant tends to be overly crowded etc. But at the same time, who doesn't like receiving a few thoughtful things and getting some extra hugs :) Winks and Eyerolls

  3. How cute is the stud muffin!!! I wont even attempt making the brownies because I'll eat them all myself and we can't really have that lol!! Hope you have a great weekend!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  5. WOW. Those brownie things look amazing. And that dress is HOT!

  6. Ummm, yes please to those brownies! And that dress is amazing -- I'm with you though, just a tiny bit longer please!!! Also, great excuse to buy red heels! (I know I should already own them, but sigh.... I don't). Have a good weekend!!
