Valentine's Day Gift Guide: 6 Gift Ideas for Simple Fun at Home

Monday, February 1, 2021
Valentine's Day might feel a little different this year, so I've whipped up a few gift ideas for fun at home, as well as simple gifts that will put a smile on anyone's face. I've also included some gifts that help to share moments from afar. Read on to see what I found!

Happy Eyes Valentine's Day Glasses 

You can literally become my favorite emoji 😍😍😍 with these fun Hearts Happy Eyes paper glasses from American Paper Optics! Put them on and look at a point of light and you'll see hearts! These are such a great idea for classrooms, card exchanges, family fun, or even just to mail to friends. You can purchase them right from American Paper Optics online. They have other glasses to choose from, too, including various holidays and special occasions (even birthday specs!).

Nixplay Smart Photo Frame (Metal Design)

One of the first things you'll notice when you visit my home is the beautiful Nixplay Smart Photo Frame on our mantle, which displays (in gorgeously bright and crisp quality) all of our favorite photos. It has a motion sensor so you never have to worry about turning it on our off. It links to the Nixplay app, so you can easily switch out the photos or create playlists of your favorites via your device (I love to make themed playlists each month- Christmas Faves, Spring Faves, Vacation Faves, etc.). You can share photos between frames, so if you have a family member with a Nixplay frame you can send them your photos and vice versa!! How cool is that? The Nixplay frame designs are beautiful and their customer service is top notch. I used to think digital frames were kind of a pain but the Nixplay is nothing like those frames of the past. It's a gift idea that I always recommend to people because it never fails to disappoint. Nixplay frames can be wall-mounted or remain free standing. I can't say enough good things about it. Their metal frame comes beautifully packaged and will truly make an impressive gift for anyone! For more info, check out Nixplay online and be sure to read my post, 5 Reasons You'll Love the Nixplay Smart Photo Frame. Nixplay also offers a subscription plan called Nixplay Plus to help you get even more out of your frame(s). **Good news!! From February 1st to February 21st, Nixplay is having a Valentine's Day Sale! Selected Nixplay Smart Frames are on sale with up to $160 off. Be sure to keep an eye out for these sales through this link:

Dash Heart Shaped Mini Waffle Maker

I've always loved the Dash mini waffle makers, and now their waffle makers come in so many fun colors and shapes. Their heart-shaped mini waffle maker is perfect for Valentine's Day (and I knw because I bought it!). They're not just good for waffles- pick up the Dash Mini Waffle Cookbook and you'll see that you can make desserts, lunches, snacks and so much more (Keto diet followers love the "chaffle," which is like a cheese waffle you can make with the Dash unit). You can find it on Amazon for around $17.99. 

Funko Snapsies

I had to include something small and cute in here for Valentine's Day, so I picked Funko Snapsies. Here's a little blurb from Funko about these totes adorbs lil' llamas:  "Funko released a new toy line called Snapsies™ currently available exclusively at Target and for $9.99. Designed and developed for children ages 6-11, Snapsies™ offers innovative snap-and-match technology allowing kids to customize their figures to create thousands of unique combinations. These undeniably cute Snapsies™ creatures, including Llamas, Hedgehogs, Unicorns can be transformed into Jett the rock star unicorn, Billie the super-athletic mountain goat, and hedgehog Boe. Snapsies™ come packaged in an enclosed ball container, adding an element of surprise to the play experience." Kids really love mixing and matching the parts, and they're the perfect way to brighten up a desktop (especially during these remote learning times!). 

Kess Ice Ball and Ice Hopper

Recommended for ages 6 and up, Ice Ball is a liquid glitter-filled bounce ball that is available in six sparkly pastel colors, including pink (perfect for Valentine's Day!). Their Ice Hopper (also recommended for ages 6 and up) is a glitter-filled take on a classic toy. As it spins around, it sparkles with liquid glitter providing for a colorful, fun shine effect. Both of these retail for under $10 and make a great gift for kids, including tweens (hey, even adults who like sparkly things would appreciate the Ice Ball!). You can currently find them at Books-a-Million. 

Sweet Treats for Your Sweeties

If you're looking for something new and different to send that special someone (instead of flowers or chocolate), check out this fun New Jersey business called Mb Bubbly & Such! Their candy charcuterie boards are the stuff that dreams are made of! And if that's not for you, why not order a treat tray featuring their cakesicles, chocolate dipped OREO cookies, and breakable hearts! Contact them through Facebook or Instagram to place an order!
