Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas + {$75 Belk Gift Card Giveaway}

Valentine’s Day is only a few days away and with the crazy that is my life now, it’s barely even crossed my mind.  The good news is that there is still time to shop.  The even better news is that I have partnered with Belk to share some of my favorite Valentine gift ideas and to give away a $75 Belk gift card to two winners!  Since Brynlee’s arrival and diagnosis, I’ve found myself shopping online even more than usual.  Not only am I ordering essentials over the web, but I am also shopping for gifts.  In a rare turn of events, I decided to pick out some of my favorite items at  Once my kids came along, I began only buying for them and forgetting about myself.  Kids clothes and toys are just more fun!

Being cooped up in the house for 7 weeks has been a little depressing so I decided to treat myself for once.  We don’t spend ridiculous amounts on Valentine’s day gifts so every item on my list is under $100 with the exception of 1 that I just couldn’t leave off.  I tried to stick with a red/ heart/ Valentine-y theme but all of these gifts will work for any occasion!

 KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer  $349.99 (on sale!)

Ganz Heart 4 Piece Measuring Spoon Set  $14.99 (50% off!)

The super practical side of me had to include a couple kitchen gifts.  I’m the kind of person who loves gifts I can use often so my one splurge on the list is the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer.  I received mine as a gift several years ago and seriously love it.  I get so much use out of it and there are so many colors available.  Mine is the “Ice” color, but the “Aqua” is another favorite.
