Gifts For a Special Someone
Valentine’s Day has to be one of my top favorite holidays. For starters everything is pink, my favorite color, and it was the only day in elementary school I actually looked forward to. There was something magical about eating candy all day and opening cards for hours on end. For me, Valentine’s Day has never been about being single or being in a relationship; it has always been about showing every person in your life a little extra love. So whether you have a Valentine or not, (SIDENOTE: The only valentine I ever had was in the second grade and I got asked with a snoopy Valentine’s Day card) embrace what February 14th is about: LOVE. Therefore, to show someone special that you care here are a few gifts bound to make someone smile. Each one truly embodies the meaning of love by giving back to others.
Knee high socks are a wonderful gift to give this Valentine’s Day. My favorite way to wear knee high socks is to bed paired with a big flannel shirt. The best part about these sox by Gertie & Baxter is that sources over 95% of all their materials from the Downtown Los Angeles Fabric District, supporting local business owners and shops in the local community.
This heart shaped clutch by Whiting and Davis is the ultimate Valentine’s Day date accessory; it adds a great pop of color to any outfit. 30% of the proceeds of this unique heart shaped clutch are donated to six admirable and impactful charity organizations.
Men take note; if you are thinking of buying your lady friend sweet pair of lingerie look no further than Thinx. Thinx is the most thoughtful underwear you could ever give. It is specialty designed with moisture and stain resistant for that special time of the month. But wait, these super cute undies get even better. For every pair of underwear bought, you provide 7 Afripads to women in developing countries. Afripads are reusable and washable pads that are sold to women in developing countries. Not only does this help girls stay in school during that time of the month, but it also contributes to employing women to make the pads in Uganda.
Lastly, to our beloved Toms. These Toms are a great gift to tell any young girl in your life how much sparkle is inside of her. In addition for every pair of Toms purchased they give a pair to someone in need Toms is also giving $1 to UNICIF for every pair purchased for the month of February.
