9 Sweet Valentine’s Day Treats

A bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates might be the most traditional, but when it comes to Valentine’s Day gift-giving, there is so much more out there to show your affection for the ones you love. Whether you’re looking for a special surprise for your spouse, child or friend (and don’t forget to treat yourself, too!), these options are as sweet as can be.

The hand-made details—a dark denim rosette, metallic heart cut-out and hand lettering—of this wood-grained Love Frame ($11.99) make it an extra-special perch for a favorite photo.

 

 

How cute is this Together Makes Life Beautiful pillow ($9.99)? One side features a heartfelt message, while the other is covered edge to edge with x’s and o’s.

 

With its heathered gray tones, comfy knit fabric and sweet screenprint, this Inspired Hearts Hacci Raglan Hoodie ($19.99) should be required attire for a cozy movie Valentine’s Day date at home.

 

Whether or not it’s sandals season where you live, you can’t help but go googly-eyed after one look at these Emoji Heart Eyes Flip Flops ($3.99).

 

Any modern romantics in the house? If you prefer crisp and clean-cut designs to pink, red and frills, pick up this Derek Heart High Neck Screen Tank ($4.99) with a simple black-and-white motif that nods to Valentine’s Day without seeming overly sappy.

 

With it’s powder pink hue and sugar-sweet message, this Heart String Art ($9.99) is just the right fit for the littlest valentine in your life. Bonus points for adding these utterly adorable Rainbow Heart Sunglasses ($3.99)

 

Wear your heart on your sleeve with this Crystal Bangle with Heart ($7.99). Between the rose gold-tone metal and the twinkly crystal heart and band, it’s right-on for Valentine’s Day.

 

Lapel pins are making a comeback, big-time! Your BFF would really dig the Orion 3 Piece Bff Heart and Donut Pins ($3), which would look super-cute pinned on a jean jacket or backpack.

Love is in the air at Gordmans in Springfield, Illinois! Sales Associate, Erica met the man of her dreams while working at Gordmans. And from there a Gordmans love story blooms.

How They Met

4 years ago, while in graduate school, Erica was working as a part time Sales Associate during the holidays. When doing markdowns in the Juniors department she noticed Joseph.  He was a cute guy who kept walking by the Juniors department, who was probably not shopping for Juniors clothing. He approached her and told her she was really beautiful and gave her his contact information.

Lost Information

Erica didn’t contact him right away. In fact, she thought she lost his contact information. 3 months later she was cleaning and found the business card that Joseph had given her. She took the plunge and called him and they talked for hours. This then lead to a first date. The rest of this love story is history.

The Proposal

Erica and Joseph were going to a friend’s early surprise birthday party. While she was busy with all the details of what to wear he was busy planning a surprise proposal at the end of the night. He was nervous but when it came time to give a toast he got up and started talking about Erica and got down on one knee. She said Yes! And the restaurant cheered them on!

The Engagement Photos

Since it all began at Gordmans they decided to do their engagement photo session at Gordmans.  This captured how they met and became a truly unique way to set their photos apart from everyone else.

The Wedding

In full planning mode Erica has most of the plans made for their special day. In fact, a week after the proposal she had the major plans already confirmed. Of course her colors are purple, just like Gordmans! She is adding her own unique touch with DIY projects for centerpieces, glittering the bridesmaid shoes and Joseph is even helping custom design the invitation.
