I’m no chocolate hater, something sweet is always a good idea. Yet, I’ve had sixteen years of Valentines day with my husband, he knows better than to walk in the door with a heart shaped box from CVS.

I would be extremely stoked if he was thoughtful enough to buy me candy from my favorite company, P.O.P. Candy!

They come in a variety of incredible flavors, my fave, rosemary, pecan, almond, cherry, cinnamon, fire pistachio, they are all really yummy.

You can never go wrong with cute, girlie things from Ban.do! I am amassing quite the collection of lovely sequin hearts but I could always use one more!

I’m still a sucker for pretty flowers. In my early twenties *which tragically took place during the nineties* I was a huge fan of red roses and daisies. Oh my but my taste in flowers has changed in my thirties. I can say peonies, ranunculus, poppies and succulents make me swoon. The fragrance, the bright, happy colors, they are perfection. It’s still early for peony season so I would be majorly happy to receive any of these gorgeous weeds.

Honestly though, flowers only last for a few days, I think it would be a lovely experience to take a floral class. I am all thumbs when it comes to arranging flowers and I have no idea how to make my flowers live longer than a week. I would love to take a class at Floral LA or Moon Canyon floral workshop. I think it’s worth it for the price of a bouquet.

I would absolutely die if cupid left these on my doorstep! Seriously, I have been wanting this lovely couple forever. They are so rad I can’t stand it.

What’s more romantic than a picnic in the park? I adore this basket set from Anthropologie. All we would need is a cute blanket, some bread, a bottle of wine and my favorite Trader Joe’s chocolate cheese.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to something special from your sweetheart? I will be pleased as punch even if I get a homemade card from the Mister and the kid, every day I spend with them is my gift.

Do you love her Hello Kitty purse?
