♥ Keep Your Love Locked Down

 It's that time of the year again. When the lovebirds sing and the bitter single's booze. International Lovah's Day or Valentines Day (*The second largest greeting card sending day behind Christmas) comes around on the 14th of February every year. Flowers are sent, truffles are devoured, your finest lingéire is worn, all in the name of St. Valentine. We all try and steer clear of the "hallmark holidays" but here at Gigi Ouf, The Blog we want you to embrace this day of amore. It doesn't have to be a boyfriend, fiancé, husband, girlfriend or wife, just pick someone who brings happiness into your life and send them a Valentine to show your appreciation, it will surely bring a smile to their face.
Instead of opting for the typical ; Candles, Flowers, Red Wine, Chocolates + Champagne here is a list of cute little Valentines Day trinkets that anyone would love to receive. 
Find your favorite love, inspirational or funny quote or song lyric and send this Message in a Bottle
Its cute, different, cheap, personalized and after you write the message, YOU get to keep the XoXo Pencil :) 


I am a total sucker for cards. Anytime I see a card I love even if I don't have anyone to send it to at that particular time, I buy it anyway to have on hand. I am even more of a sucker for hand-made cards with any sort of embellishment thats adds a lovely flair. This particular greeting card company, You Send Me has been featured on The Martha Stewart Show, but I first saw the cards at a local Papyrus and fell in love! Pictured is the Be Mine, A Perfect Pair, My Love & 'Sending You a Love Note This Valentines Day' cards that all have delicate hand-glittered design's with the intention to "Celebrate the enduring and endearing nature of hand-held correspondence." You can tell someone you love them this Valentines Day in one of these fancy cards found at You Send Me
Know someone who needs a shoulder to cry or sleep on this Valentines Day? Send them a little piece of comfort with these Boyfriend and Girlfriend arm pillows. Not only will they probably get  good laugh, they will also get a good nights sleep! 
{Both found on Amazon}
Who doesn't love Tom's Shoes? They are comfy, fashionable, affordable and most importantly each pair of shoes you purchase provides a less fortunate child with a luxury most of us take for granted everyday, a pair of shoes. With Youth Sizes, Women's, Men's, Adult's even Vegan styles there really is a pair of Tom's for everyone. Check out Blake's inspiring story on the website here and support the One for One campaign by buying a pair of Tom's today! You wont just be giving your valentine a gift, but you will also be giving a gift to another child in need. 

Those are just a few of my ideas! 
Hope you enjoy them and most importantly on this Valentines Day, 
Make Love Not War! 
xoxo, 
Gigi
