With Valentines Day on the horizon, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite gift ideas. I love giving Rubina goodies on Valentines Day. My mom was so good about this fun holiday; cards, heart shaped cookies and sweet gifts. I have a very vivid memory of the 14th of February when I was in the fifth grade and my parents were going to be out of town. I was staying with a friend and was thrilled to wake up on Valentines Day to find that my mom had left me a sweet card, heart socks, a pink headband, beaded bracelet and a couple of chocolates. I will never forget each of those items and how treasured I felt that morning even though she wasn’t with me.
Here are a few of the gifts I’ve loved giving to my little love…
These Pantone books are SO much fun. Rubina loves them; the puzzle book especially. We are both obsessed. There aren’t many days her little fingers aren’t all over these colorful pages. Amazon.com
As you’ve seen in a previous post we are crazy over Twig Creative! Rubina wears a camera around her neck on most of our adventures; they evoke such imagination and creativity. Twigcreative.com
Of course, she always gets a headband and socks, for the reason mentioned above. You know how I love tradition. And one of my favorite finds ever is this sweet, little mushroom night light.
This adorable Sophie & Lili doll is very well loved. I had so much fun customizing her to look like Ruby! Sophieandlili.bigcartel.com
And, finally, I gave Rubina this necklace last year and I’m thrilled to report we haven’t lost it yet! She is always asking to wear it. I put the little charm on a gold chain that belonged to my late grandmother. I think it’s just darling and definitely one of my favorite things.
