4. Ridged 6-in-1 Screwdriver-If your guy’s not the scotch-drinking type, why not make his V-day with a gift he’ll actually use? According to my husband, not all screwdrivers are created equal, but this one actually met his stringent engineer requirements, whatever that means. And this handy multi-tip version not only fits a variety of screws, it’s got almost all 5-star reviews! ($12.55, Amazon)
5. Good to Great-I love this book so much that I read it again almost every year! And I suggest it to all my close friends, family and colleges. The new book price changes frequently, but used you can snag it for as low as ($7.37, Amazon)
Gifts for Her:
6. Love Your Life Mug-Maybe it is just because I am a coffee addict, but I think our signature Love Your Life mug is a great reminder to love the life you have, not the one you only wish you had. It is also the perfect mug to inspire you to prioritize and focus on what matters most. The mug is also dishwasher and microwave safe. ($14.00, The Living Well Shop)
7. The Antelope in the Living Room-While at first glance a book about an antelope might not scream “Happy Valentine’s Day,” I implore you to take another look. I seriously laughed until I cried at least a dozen times. Melanie (aka Big Mama) nails the side-by-side beauty and frustration of being married to someone who is both your best friend and your polar opposite, and provides the reminder that we all need now & then that while marriage might not always look like it does in the movies, being with the one we love is like coming home. ($11.75, Amazon)
8. Popsockets– These pretty additions to your smartphone or tablet allow you to relax your hand while securely holding your phone. There are over 15 beautiful styles to choose from and with the super affordable price tag you could buy two. (One for your bestie and one for yourself) ($7.01, Amazon)
9. The Infinity Forever Love Knot Necklace by PAVOI. This beautiful Infinity Love Knot Necklace is a perfect way to say I’ll love you always. It is 14K Gold Plating which will ensure a very long lasting brilliant finish that is nickel free, lead free and hypoallergenic It also has an adjustable: 16-18″ chain. ($14.99, Amazon)
10. 50 First Dates–My husband and I are pretty much polar opposites when it comes to movies (and everything else), but this is one we can both agree on. In fact, we have probably watched this one together at least 50 times and it never gets old! If you haven’t seen it yet, or even if you have, this classic always makes for a perfect date night! If you want to make it a double feature, grab Hitch as well–that one is our 2nd favorite! ($8.91, Amazon)

13. Snowy Valentine-This adorable children’s book is making our list yet again. I just love the message that highlights the idea that Valentine’s Day is about love and not about gifts. So sweet! ($8.06, Amazon)
14. Melissa & Doug Sweet Hearts Wooden Bead Set-My girls have always been the creative type and this bead set comes with over 120 beads for them to make beautiful jewelry they can keep for themselves or share with their friends. It’s also the perfect gift for any other time of year. ($9.95, Amazon)
