Whether it’s a night with your honey or a date with your bestie we can all agree this holiday is somewhat antiquated yes? Can we just go back to passing paper cutouts with suckers as gifts back and forth like we did in grade school? So, I made an executive decision to do a roundup that not only benefited your loves, but possibly may benefit you as well. Now, the term “loves” can serve as your mate, your date, your bestie or your pony. There are no rules here. And I’m not going to give it some stupid name like “Galentine’s day” to sell you stuff you don’t need. This stuff you need, or will want…I promise. These are a few of our favorite things, just like the song says. The links are in the product names. Today is human day and a post on products for ponies will follow later this week…

Everyone loves a scent that reminds them of the past. A walk through the neighborhood, a ride through a field, that first roll in the hay…which we can all agree is super uncomfortable. Give the gift of memory and scent. Candles are a fabulous way to go and this little Colorado company that could is right on the money. I’m a little bummed the Laurel Canyon candle is out of stock. Well here you go, not only is it appropriate for this day, it tells someone that your heart isn’t black and barren. Just kidding.
“That one time you fell in love and it was awesome,” candle has notes of fresh lavender and citrus blossoms. *soy candle *hand-poured in Colorado starting at $6.00
