valentine’s gift guide – for you!

Today I’m bringing you a Valentine’s gift guide for the most important person in your life: YOU!

We don’t often celebrate Valentine’s Day in our house, at least not in the traditional sense. I do love to pick up something special for myself, though. February can be extra-dreary, so I pick-me-up is nice! I’ve included some things I have my eye on below.


valentine's gift guide - a modern agenda


1] this graphic dolman kimono from anthropologie is gorgeous! a great piece to transition into spring. it can also be layered with a slim turtleneck over the next few weeks.

2] these blush lace-up flats from old navy are adorable. everyone has a pair, so make sure you add them to your list!

3] H&M + Happy Plugs = the cutest ear buds. we’re always losing buds in our house (or the dog destroys them!). for the price, these can’t be beat and they come in tons of colors!

4] I added this lip set to the valentine’s gift guide because I can never pick just one color or formula. this is a great set of nude basics at a great price!

5] I’ve been debating a silk pillowcase for a long time. I do wash & dry my hair every day, plus color every 6 weeks, so this would probably be a great investment for my hair.

6] I’m probably going to go buy this olive green crossbody clutch this weekend. I’m madly in love with all things olive green + anything to keep my hands free!

7] this dr. jart face mask made it on to the valentine’s gift guide because I LOVE IT. a great price for a little treat and much needed in this dry winter air.

8] I’ve recently discovered Tony Moly products and really want to try their masks. they have a huge selection at sephora, so if tea tree isn’t your thing, you’ll definitely find something to love.

9] not only does my skin get super dry in the winter, so does my hair. I love amika products and this mask is no exception. grab this along with a face mask and pamper yourself.

If you aren’t into gifts for yourself, I wanted to include a few extras in the valentine’s gift guide. You can print out your own (adorable!) valentine’s over at Almost Makes Perfect. Or you can make a night of chocolate goodness with a grilled chocolate sandwich from food52, or diy chocolate dipped strawberries from Camille Styles.

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Do you traditionally do dinner out, make big plans or ignore the holiday altogether? Let me know in the comments!
