Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Get your special someone the perfect Valentine's Day gift with this epic guide. The best way to wow your love this Valentine's Day is by gifting two to three items. One is not enough! If you're looking for typical gifts you are in the wrong place. I like useful, fun, non-traditional gifts with my gift guides!

Gadgets for Valentine's Day
V.ALRT Personal Alert Device

This gadget can be worn on a necklace, on your wrist, on a keychain, or hidden away. The owner preselects three contacts to send messages to if the button is pressed, which is used for emergencies. It also calls them. Your emergency contacts will also receive your location from the GPS in your smartphone. There are no monthly fees. 

Listen to your favorite love songs with this waterproof and shockproof speaker. Use it in your car as a speaker phone for hands-free communications. Bluetooth stereo synch with voice confirmation.

Jabra STEALTH Bluetooth Headset

Give the gift of hands-free talking with this discreet headset. Never lose your headset with GPS tracking. Save energy with the powernap function, and enjoy up to six hours of talk time. It's easy to pair with your device, and can even work with two devices. 

DUBS Acoustic Filters Advanced Tech Earplugs

Filter out the noise of the world with DUBS Acoustic earplugs. Use at concerts, on the plane, in the city, or at a game. They only filter the noise, not block it. They are reusable and come with a box to keep them in. Take them with you everywhere. When the world gets too loud just pop them in. 

echo connect Echokey

Ditch those annoying cables and get yourself some Echokeys. Choose from an Apple licensed lightening connector and a micro USB connector, or get both! Comes in red, blue and black.

TerraCycle Circuit Board Picture Frame

Frame some beautiful art or your favorite photo in this upcycled picture frame from TerraCycle. These circuit boards have been made into a frame instead being thrown in a landfill. 

Mohu Leaf 50Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna

Cable sucks. It's expensive and annoying. Ditch it and get this Mohu Leaf 50 Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna. We started using it a few weeks ago and it gets about 20 channels. Plus, it's been snowing here for the last two weeks. It still works great. Since we ditched cable we've saved a small fortune. A one time fee for this antenna allows us to get some local channels, watch some good TV shows, and watch the news for more upcoming snow storms. The antenna can be hidden behind artwork, a TV, or anything else and it can be painted to match your decor.

Plug this gadget in and connect to your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm. It syncs with your smartphone so you can monitor your alarms from anywhere. It also notifies you when an alarm goes off and notifies your emergency contacts if you don't respond. It also monitors humidity and temperature. Plus, it has millions of colors to choose from for your nightlight.

Food for Valentine's Day
My favorite is the dark chocolate pumpkin seed with sea salt. So delicious and chocolaty!

I LOVE olive oil, so of course I think this would be a great Valentine's Day gift. The Amoretti Olive Oil Trio comes with Organic Extra Virgin Finishing Olive Oil Infused with Kalamata Olives, Pomegranate Balsamic Vinaigrette, and Aged Pomegranate Balsamic Vinaigrette. These will be perfect with my salads.
Amoretti also makes:
·         Premium Martini Mixes (with alcohol or virgin)
·         Premium Organic and Naturally Flavored Agave Nectars (blood orange and french vanilla, as well as regular)
·         Premium Syrups (crema di vanilla, crema di hazelnut, crema di caramel, as well as sugar free French vanilla, hazelnut and caramel)
Now, I'm only listing a few of the flavor options here. Amoretti has hundreds of them. I love that the Martini mixes can be non-alcoholic. The syrups are great in coffee. My favorite is the caramel! Agave nectar is a healthier alternative to sugar. Check out all of their offerings on their website and make your loved one a martini, flavored coffee, or bake something special this Valentine's Day!

Apps for Valentine's Day 

I know, it's a little unorthodox getting your love an app for Valentine's Day, but this one will help her stay safe. The SmartTek Systems Smart Alert app has a panic button with GPS and nationwide coverage. A press of the button puts you in contact with a live person that will stay on the line with you until help arrives.

Beauty for Valentine's Day

These innovative nail designs are spectacular! They are easy to apply, and come in some beautiful styles. I chose to review the red polka dots, pink roses and pink stripes - Valentine's Day related colors and designs of course. They are easy to apply and you can even get customizable nail designs (see link for more details). If your girl loves doing her nails, this is a great gift for Valentine's Day. 

Pamper her with some Mark Hill Hair Treatments. These leave your hair soft and silky.

Of course, shiny jewelry and chocolates are never a bad choice for Valentine's Day gifts! It all depends on who you are shopping for. The more you know your love, the better the gifts will be. Keep your ears open to what your special someone wants or enjoys. Keep a list of these things so you will know exactly what to get when a holiday comes around!

What are you getting your love this Vday?
