Show your Valentine the Love with an original Art gift

There are plenty of gift ideas for Valentine’s Day – jewelry, a box of chocolates, flowers, a plush animal… These are all great ideas, but sadly, some of them only last for a few days at best (chocolates, flowers…). I’m sure you would rather give a gift that would last forever and is something that can be enjoyed year round, not just on Valentine’s Day.

If an expensive piece of jewelry is not in your budget this year, I have another option – artwork.

If you’re looking for a unique Valentine’s gift that will last forever and will truly express your feelings, look no further than the art works at Saatchi Art.com.

Here are some examples of artwork from Saatchi Art’s Gifts for Valentine’s Day collection hand-chosen by Katherine Henning, Saatchi Art’s Associate Curator. If you want to explore other works, Saatchi Art offers a FREE advisory service to help you choose the perfect piece from its hundreds of affordable works.

The leading online art gallery, Saatchi Art has a huge collection: choose from more than 500,000 original paintings, drawings, sculptures, and photographs by over 50,000 emerging artists from over 70 countries. Original works at Saatchi Art wont’ break the bank –they start at as little as $135 (prints are as affordable as $35) and the average price range is from $2000 to $10,000.

I like that you can also get canvas print for many of the pieces of artwork. I prefer canvas prints because I find them easier to hang and I like how they add dimension to the walls (they pop out – they don’t lie flush against the wall).

I checked out some of the recommended pieces of art for Valentine’s Day. One of them stood out to me right away. It’s entitled Butterflies on Deep Crimson by artist Lily Greenwood from the United Kingdom.

Butterflies in Deep Crimson

It’s beautiful!

I LOVE the colors! I also love that you can hang it vertically or horizontally and it looks wonderful either way.

Saatchi Art sent me a canvas copy of this print. It’s just as lovely in person as it was online.

I have the 12″ x 16″ canvas print. It’s small but it still stands out against the wall. It’s rich, deep, dark crimson red background “pops” from the delicate light green walls in our living room. The colors of the butterflies brings the colors together.

Here is my print on top of our bookcase both horizontal and vertical (I keep it vertical).

Art 1

Art 2

I LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! this colorful canvas print. The photos do not do it justice.

You certainly don’t have to stick with the recommend artwork for Valentine’s Day. Saachi Art has a variety of artwork in different mediums to choose from such as photography, sculptures, paintings, collages and drawings.

Here are a few of my favorites from the site.

A car for the sky

Cat

Ceramic Balloon

End of the road Train Track Vase

A piece of art is something that can be enjoyed day after day. It’s not for the holidays and it’s not seasonal. It can also be passed down from generation to generation. Some artwork could even be an investment.

Saatchi Art has artwork that would appeal to most everyone. I love art and I found many pieces that I truly loved. At the same time I found some pieces that were a bit weird (in my opinion). Just like anything else, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

Saatchi Art also has a “room view” option that will give you an idea of how the artwork (except sculptures) will look on a wall. Look for this graphic (below) to see the piece of art and how it would look in a generic room.

View in Room

Even if there is not enough time to get the piece of art (I’m not sure of their shipping options), artwork still makes a great gift year round. It’s also something you can buy to decorate your home with.

For more information visit SaatchiArt.com. You can also find them on social media. All of their social media links are found on the bottom of their website.

What do you think about gifting a piece of artwork? Is it something you would love to receive as a gift?

Something yummy for Valentine’s Day (and I don’t mean a box of chocolates)

 

Breakfast in bed

Do plan on giving your special someone a box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day? Or, are you anticipating receiving a box of chocolates from someone?

I love giving and receiving chocolates. There is only one problem – I’ll eat it all! I don’t really need all those extra calories, but it’s hard for me to resist when the chocolate is calling my name.

Food is a big part of the Valentine’s Day holiday, from breakfast in bed to a romantic dinner – plus a big box of chocolates. I guess a lot of people equate love with delicious food.

Recently a survey was done with 500 men and women between the ages of 25-54. The survey came up with the following results, which I find very interesting.

  • 38% of respondents said that a creative Valentine’s Day would begin with breakfast in bed.
  • 63% of respondents said that they would want to awake on Valentine’s Day to the taste of something delicious.
  • 81% of respondents said that they would prefer to treat themselves to something if they are celebrating Valentine’s Day alone

I find it interesting that a lot of people responded to breakfast in bed and wanting to wake up to something delicious. I’m pretty sure no one was referring to a box of chocolates first thing in the morning for breakfast (although that would be yummy).

I have a better idea – Love Crunch Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter, a new flavor of granola from Nature’s Path. It’s made with whole grains, fiber and is low sodium. It does have chocolate, it’s delicious and it’s a sweet treat you can enjoy for Valentine’s Day (or any day).

Love Crunch Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter is made with the following ingredients.

Ingredients

In addition it has 2 grams of fiber, 13 grams of whole grains and 4 grams of protein per serving.

Love Crunch Dark Chocolate & Red Berries

Love Crunch Dark Chocolate & Red Berries

If your beloved loves chocolate dipped strawberries for Valentine’s Day, why not try Love Crunch Dark Chocolate & Red Berries, made with freeze dried strawberries and raspberries. Dark chocolate and strawberries are a match made in heaven.

Ingredients 2

It contains the same amount of fiber and whole grains as the peanut butter mix, but only 2 grams of protein instead of 4 grams.

You can enjoy these granola mixes “as it” straight out of the bag. They can also be used in delicious recipes – some of them ideal for breakfast in bed.

There are other recipes available utilizing Love Crunch granola mixes from Nature’s Path.

Granola mixes make great toppings on yogurt, oatmeal and cereal too.

There are other Love Crunch flavors also available.

If you are looking for other healthy breakfast ideas to enjoy on Valentine’s Day (or any day of the year), Nature’s Path has other great products available. One of my personal favorites is Flax Plus® Pumpkin Raisin Crunch cereal. I LOVE this cereal! I love pumpkin and I like to eat raisin cereals, so this is the best of both worlds. It’s very flavorful and it’s packed with goodness. One serving provides you with a whopping 7 grams of fiber, 19 grams of whole grains and 6 grams of protein.

Cereak

Not only is it great for breakfast, it’s also a great anytime snack including a topping on ice cream, yogurt and oatmeal.

Here are some more breakfast recipes you could make for your loved one. I wouldn’t mind having these breakfasts in bed.

Get Ready for a Romantic Valentine’s Day with a Romantic Movie Gift Basket Giveaway (ends 2/10/16)

 

Valentines

Love is in the air!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner – do you have something special planned for that day?

I’m still trying to think of something romantic to do with my husband. We just celebrated the 20th Anniversary of our first date this week. We went out for breakfast and saw a movie. Maybe for Valentine’s Day I’ll order food from his favorite restaurant and we’ll pop in a movie or two and enjoy a nice, quiet evening at home.

If you are looking for a romantic movie to watch with that special person in your life, you might enjoy these two titles that were just released on January 12, 2016. Both are Hallmark Channel movies.

All Of My Heart DVD-f

A young caterer’s (Lacey Chabert) life suddenly changes course when she inherits a country home and learns she must share it with a career-obsessed Wall Street trader in ALL OF MY HEART. At first, these opposites do not attract, but feelings begin to change when they find themselves having to work side-by-side to restore their newly acquired home. The heartfelt original movie also stars Ed Asner.

So You Said Yes DVD-f

In SO YOU SAID YES, when Annabelle (Kellie Martin), the owner of a specialty bridal shop, falls for Sam, the son of her fierce bridal shop competition, she must fend off Sam’s mother’s attempts at sabotage to be with the man she loves.

I haven’t seen either movie yet, but I will be receiving copies of both films to review in the near future. Keep an eye out for those reviews.

Look for both titles where ever movies are sold.

To help you create a special Valentine’s Day with that special person in your life, I have a special gift basket giveaway, courtesy of Cinedigm. The gift basket includes:

  • DVD copy of All of My Heart
  • DVD copy of So You Said Yes
  • Valentine Teddy Bear
  • Inflatable Rose Balloon

Because Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, this is going to be a quick giveaway.

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end on February 10, 2016. The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via email and will have three days to reply or a new winner will be chosen in their place.

Valentine’s Treats from Dancing Deer Baking Co.

 

valentine-teddy-1443872

It seems like only yesterday we were enjoying freshly baked holiday cookies, pumpkin pie and egg nog. Now we’re gearing up for Valentine’s Day. When did that happen? We blinked and the month of January sort of disappeared.

Flowers, chocolates, jewelry and fancy dinners are always nice Valentine’s Day gifts for that special someone in your life. They are also very cliché. Why not give your loved one something different this year as a token of your love.

I have a yummy idea – freshly baked, no artificial ingredients, made from scratch treats from Dancing Deer Baking Co.

Dancing Deer Baking Co. has treats that would make a sweet surprise for a spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, child, grandparent – even a neighbor or your mailman.

Their gifts range in price from $20 – $50.

50550_BeMyValentines_LGR

Be My Valentine Gift

Nothing says “Be My Valentine” quite like a box of delicious treats. This great collection includes:

  • 4 rich and decadent Chocolate Chunk Brownies
  • 8 soft and chewy Molasses Clove Cookies
  • A bag chock-full of Heart Medley Cookies

Send a box to someone you love today.

Dancing Deer Co. was kind enough to send me their Be My Valentine Gift set (above) to review.

Dancing Deer 1

I am not a good baker. I can cook, but I can’t bake. Nothing I bake ever comes out right. That means the only time I get to enjoy freshly baked treats is if someone gives us baked goods or I purchase them from a local bakery.

The brownies and cookies I received from Dancing Deer taste like they were freshly made that day. They taste as if they were baked with love from a relative or good friend. They do not have the look or taste of “mass produced” baked goods.

The brownies disappeared the very same day the gift box arrived. Each of my family members took one. They are a good size too – not too big, not too small, not too thick and not too thin. They are plain brownies (not frosted).

I am in love with the Molasses Clove Cookies. I have had molasses cookies before but they can’t even compare to the ones from Dancing Deer. They are amazing! I could have easily ate the entire package myself.

I am thrilled that Dancing Deer sells these cookies on their own (and not part of a gift set). I will be placing an order for those cookie real soon. They were “scrumdelicious.

Dancing Deer 2

The Heart Medley Cookies are “hearty” (no pun intended). They look small but they are really quite a mouthful. They go great with a cup of tea or coffee. I like how they are decorated for Valentine’s Day.

Even the packing was nice and all the treat arrived in great shape. Nothing was broken or crumbly.

Dancing Deer Co. sells other baked goods – and year round too (not just for Valentine’s Day). They have plenty of sweet treats that would make great gifts, as well as goodies you can enjoy for yourself.

If you would like to see what else Dancing Deer Co. has to offer visit www.DancingDeer.com. You can also check them out on social media. All of their links are found at the bottom of their website.

Rose Wreath 1

When it comes to gift giving, I always find that it’s easier to buy for women than it is for men. I have such a difficult time buying gifts for my husband, teenage son and father. For women I know I have a lot of gift ideas that they will love and appreciate – perfume, jewelry, flowers, chocolate, home decor, bake/cookware and so on.

I’m fortunate that my husband is just a big kid at heart, so he actually is amused by toys – most especially ones from his childhood. He is also into the Dallas Cowboys. Football gifts were my “go to” gift ideas, but there are only so many mugs and tee shirts one can own.

I find Valentine’s Day an especially hard time to buy a gift for my husband.

A popular men’s online shopping site, Touch of Modern, has some great gift ideas for the men in your life. Touch of Modern is a curated, online shopping destination for men to discover unexpected lifestyle products, fashion and accessories. From filet mignon beef jerky, meteorite cufflinks and all-terrain electric skateboards to vintage designer watches and custom-built electric motorbikes, Touch of Modern has something for every man in your life.

Touch of Modern even set up a special “Valentine’s Day Store” with gift ideas in categories such as men’s grooming, Tech/Gadgets, style/attire, Bar/Pub, outdoor and When the Lights go out (i.e., adult products).

Here are a few gift ideas from Touch of Modern you might want to consider for that special man in your life.

Skull Lip Balm: $16.99 – If you’re in the first dates stage, looking for something little to make him smile; how about some Skull lip balm. Every skull embossed with the Hamlet: “Be all my sins remember’d.”

Ring

I was sent the Secret Window Decoder Ring Set and Skull Lip Balm to review.

The rings come as a set. After all, you would need a ring to be able to come up with your secret message.

These are good size rings (wide band). My husband and I wear the same size ring. I wear this one on my right hand. You could even wear a ring on a chain around your neck.

Even our teenage son thinks they are pretty cool.

My husband and I text “secret messages” to each other from time to time using the decoder ring. It’s fun. Even if it’s just to send a message that reads “I love you” or “I’m thinking of you.”

I think it would be fun to give this ring as a gift along with a card written out in the secret code so your special man has to decode it to find out what the message says.

Lip Balm

I also received a set of Skull Lip Balm. I love unique things and this stood out to me right away.

Both my husband and teenage son use lip balm, but most of them are very “girly” (to quote my son). I like that this lip balm is not gender specific (men and women can enjoy it).

It came as a set of three so I kept one and gave one to each my son and husband.

The packaging is cool. If you happen to pick this up you need to TWIST the top of the skull off to open it. I was trying to pull it off with no luck. Then my son came along and twisted the top and it opened right up.

The lip balm is round (like a ball). It feels a bit greasy when it first goes on your life (it’s light – not heavy like a wax). It takes a few minutes to absorb but once it does your lips are left feeling soft and smooth.

The fun packaging also makes it a conversation piece.

The only downside is that it’s bulky compared to a regular lip balm which is in a small tube. I can slip it in my purse, but its a bit bulky to slip into your pants pocket (for men).

Now that I have seen some of the products offered by Touch of Modern, I have the site bookmarked so that I can check back the next time I am in need of a gift for that special man (my hubby) in my life.

For more information or to see what is for sale, visit TouchofModern.com. You can also check them out on social media. All of the links are found at the bottom of their website.

What do you think about these gift ideas? Do you think that special guy in your life would like any of them?
