It’s almost here—that dreaded of holidays, the one that has some men shaking in their shoes and some women scratching their heads. We’re talking about the Super Bowl of sappiness, the heyday for Hallmark, and the reason for Cupid’s career choice – Valentine’s Day.
For some people, Valentine’s Day is their chance to shine. They are masters of the grand romantic gesture and creative gifts. They have planned their Valentine surprise for weeks, and do not need any help with their last minute shopping. But I’m going to take a wild guess that you might still be struggling to come up with a Valentine gift that is just the right balance of sweet, romantic and fun.
Whether you are in a long term relationship or just getting to know that special someone, Wit & Whimzy is here to help with your gift. Here are some of our favorites that you can give instead of the standard fare, or add a surprise touch to the flowers and candy.
Guys can be tough to buy for, right? Have you been nagging him to shave that beard? Show him you’ve decided to embrace his beastly self by giving him Beard Oil or Beard Balm to pamper his whiskers. Does he have to dress up for the office? Unique printed ties from Cyberoptix or hand made bow ties from Lucky Tie Co. will provide cool style.
Want to keep it light hearted? How about our Man’s Man soap, or another funny soap from Whiskey River Soap? Perfect for the guy or girl who can laugh at themselves, and there’s a soap for every type including The Stoner, The Hipster, even the Middle Child.
Want to put together a thoughtfully themed gift? We have lots of items that work well together! For the taco lover, pair a shiny enamel pin with a “Taco is My Spirit Animal” journal (the cover is real wood!). Does she love cats? We have a variety of cat pins, itty bitty kitty figurines and lovely cat prints and cards. Add a coffee lover pin to a coffee mug, or a super scented bath bomb to a fun Emoji mug.
For romance with a twist of humor, our Tattly tattoos are perfect for “his and hers” temporary ink. There are two in a package and they are surprisingly realistic so you can sport a symbol of your love for days.
If you want to stick with the tried and true, Wit & Whimzy has plenty of artisan made jewelry including leather, semi-precious stones and our popular Ohio and West Virginia necklaces. And don’t forget the card—you won’t find mushy rhymes here but plenty of wit and whimsy!
So whether your are "Single", "In a Relationship" or even "It's Complicated" stop by before it's too late and Valentine's Day will be a breeze.
