Flowers, chocolates, sweets, and roses are just a few of the things that come to mind when most people think of Valentine’s Day. While the history of Valentine’s Day remains unclear (some speculate the holiday dates back to Saint Valentine, while others claim it’s tied to Lupercalia), there’s no question that today Valentine’s Day is a holiday meant for love and affection. In the Valentine’s Day spirit, these are the things I’m crushing on this year.

 

 

Bold Statement Colors

While this particular photo is courtesy of Flower Magazine, I love bold colors all around! Valentine’s Day may traditionally be about reds and pinks, but burgundy, plum, mauve, and vibrant purple are all colors that work well this time of year — whether in your home or your Valentine’s Day gifts!

 

 

Kate Spade Bow Sconce

I cannot get over this sconce. It’s perfect in every way. It’s part of the Kate Spade collection by Circa Lighting. I love the idea of including a few of these in a dressing area or powder room.

I love you X3 by Pure Photo

I’ve been crushing on this honest piece of artwork by Pure Photo. Although simple in design, from time to time I think we can all use a friendly reminder of all those that love us and all those we love.

 

 

Flawless Pink Nails

Valentine’s Day or not, what’s more classic than perfect pink nails? This February, I have a major crush on Romper Room by Essie.

 

 

Personalized Stationery by Minted

Minted has a massive selection of personalized stationery. Their Valentine’s Day options are beautiful, but there’s stationery for every occasion! I love the idea of sending handwritten notes letting everyone in your life know just how much you appreciate them.

 

 

My Two Valentines

Last but not least, my biggest Valentine’s Day crushes are my two babies! These two inspire me every day and have changed my life. Valentine’s Day or not, these two are always on my crush list!
