1. Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

    valentines_fh gift guide for him

    Searching for a Valentine’s Day gift he will actually use? As I shared in yesterday’s post, I added the Art of Shaving full size kit to my list, but I have a few other things I am eyeing as well. My husband is on a total sneakers kick so I love these suede chukka boots that work from weekend days to date night, then a reversible belt in brown/black is great for his weekly office look, and then I know my husband has wanted a new rolling bag for all his travel. Shop my full list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas for him below!

  2. The Art of Shaving

    Finding a Valentine’s present for your guy can be a challenge, but this year I found the perfect gift. I wanted something my hubby would find luxurious, and that he would actually use consistently. So when my girlfriends all agreed that The Art of Shaving was a big hit with the men in their lives, I began browsing the website. Obsessed with the packaging, I also loved their philosophy that ‘shaving should be elevated from a chore to a craft’ {I mean how fun and retro is a shave brush!}! I am excited to say I found exactly what I was looking for!

    I decided to get the Full Sized Kit which includes Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, Shaving Brush and After-Shave Balm {which are all-natural}, and they come in a box great for gifting. Then I also got the Morris Park Collection Razor! My husband is all for the unscented, but the sandalwood scent is amazing too. So for those of you hunting for your gifts, definitely check this one out!

  3. Cutest and Sweetest Ideas for Valentine’s Day

    Cutest Ideas for Valentine's Day by Fashionable Hostess16

    Brainstorming ways to make this Valentine’s Day a bit more special? In today’s post I rounded up some of my favorite ideas to creating the perfect day, whether it’s for that someone special or for a full blown party!

    Cutest Ideas for Valentine's Day by Fashionable Hostess15

    Number one, go for the mini’s! Some of my favorite champagne brands, like Chandon does mini bottles of rosé! I love that everyone has a personal bottle {or two or three} for the night!

    Number two, for those of you hosting Valentine’s Day dinner, ditch the bread and serve dessert first {like I did in this post!}. Individual cupcake domes are super sweet at each setting filled with a stack of macarons or cupcakes!

    Number three, create a heart cheese plate! DIY it by taking a large Brie and tracing the shape with a heart cookie cutter, or browse your local Trader Joes where they come out with heart bries right before the Holiday!

    Number four, start the day with breakfast in bed like I did in this post! I bought a heart waffle maker, XO hangtags, and pink candies to make it romantic!

    Number five, make a Valentine’s Day cocktail! Of course go overboard with red garnishes and festive straws!

    Number six, decorate your bar cart like I did in this post. Hang heart garlands, create a lush bouquet, and prepare pre-made cocktails {all the details in my post!}!

    Number seven, instead of your usual dessert, create a DIY cookie decorating station! Pre-make {or buy} large cookies or brownies and place a selection of frostings, sprinkles, and candies to decorate with! May the prettiest cookie win!
