Valentine’s Day 2017: Top Gifts for the Season of Love
As Valentine’s Day approaches, many of us are left wondering what to get those that mean the most to us. The Christmas and holiday season seems as though it were yesterday, and we are all out of unique and thoughtful gift ideas. But Daily Mom is here to help with our Valentine’s Day gift guides. Below you will find some of the most interesting, unique, and thoughtful gifts perfect for anyone on your sweetheart list.
Women love to decorate (and then redecorate, and redecorate again) their homes. It brings them joy and pleasure to turn their house into a warm home. One of the best items that helps to bring together entire rooms are rugs. This year, you can choose the perfect rug and gift it to her for Valentine’s Day. Though it may not be what comes to mind as a traditional gift, unlike flowers and jewelry, a rug will last for years and years to come, and she will get pleasure out of seeing it everyday.
One of our favorite rugs which happens to feature the beautiful deep red color of the season is the Kohl Mohammadi Oriental Rug by eSaleRugs. This gorgeous rug is authentic and 100% hand spun, featuring 150 knots per inch. It is crafted with red, beige, burgundy, navy blue, orange, and tan, though the deep red is the first thing you will notice. This delightful color combination will be the first thing you see in any room, but it is also subtle enough to go with many types of decor. All of their hand-knotted rugs are professionally washed, treated, and inspected before leaving their warehouse. For a gift that shows top notch craftsmanship and will be loved all year long, you cannot go wrong with a rug from eSaleRugs.
Perfect gift for the woman who loves to decorate and appreciates high quality, authentic craftsmanship.
eSaleRugs is the ultimate online shopping place for all of your rug needs! They are America’s #1 rug store, and they offer over 25,000 styles of rugs of varying shape, size, pattern, and material.

Personalized gifts show love and creativity. In gifting a photo book, they will know that you spent the time to design the album, and really cherish the photos inside. We love the idea of creating a Layflat Photo Book from Artifact Uprising full of wedding photos, special memories, and personalized notes inside the book. Artifact Uprising has four different types of photo books to choose from: layflat photo albums, hardcover photo books, softcover photo books, and Instagram friendly books. The Layflat Photo Book is an instant favorite here, because it’s stunning in person. It features thick, luxurious pages that open flat, so your cherished photo can span from one side to the other, without a nasty seam or bend in the middle.
The stunning cloth cover looks rich and organic, and you can have your personalized message written to your true love and pressed in your choice of foil stamping. Silver foil on a grey book looks clean and modern, while gold stamping on an olive colored book looks classic and earthy. There are numerous colors and combinations available, so your choice can reflect the person’s preference, or you can opt for a color that would coordinate well in your home, as it’s likely to adorn your coffee table for years to come.
Sizing choices are also available, so your book can be 8″ x 11″ or a unique 12″ x 12″ for a statement piece unlike any other photo album. You can design the pages easily using your own template, or use the pre-designed formats available in the design program. We love switching up the page styles, and creating a book that is truly unique and special.
Perfect gift for the sentimental woman who loves personalized gifts.

What better gift is there than the gift of a good night’s sleep? As parents, those days may be few and far between, but when it does happen? It’s glorious! You don’t have the luxury of taking a chance with an uncomfortable pillow holding you back from your best sleep. A great pillow is the perfect combination of sexy and practical. We love the idea of gifting His & Hers pillows, along with two homemade coupons: one for a morning of their choosing for sleeping in, and another coupon for a fantasy night in bed, between the sheets (if you catch our drift.) The Pebble Pillow from Nook Sleep Systems is the perfect pillow for you and your lover (and maybe even a kid bed-crasher once in a while!)
You may have heard about Nook Sleep Systems because they are the leading company in infant bedding and sleep products. They take the time to consider every aspect of sleep, from breathability to non-toxicity to cleanliness. All of the products that Nook Sleep Systems releases are carefully inspected, analyzed, and tested prior to use. Nook Sleep System is independently owned and operated out of Southern California, and sources most of their materials organically and locally. The organic-certified wool comes from family-owned farms in Northern California and Oregon and the organic cotton comes from Texas.
You may be wary of a white pillow, however, the cover of the Pebble Pillow is soft, breathable, and repels stains. Even if you forget to take off your mascara perfectly every night, it won’t discolor the covering.
Pebble Pillow is made with a removable and washable TENCEL® and polyester Pebble cover, and is filled with resilient memory foam. The only ingredients in the production of this pillow are:
- Certified Organic Cotton
- Eucalyptus Lyocell
- Recycled Polyester
- Filled with Memory Foam
Perfect gift for the couple who values their time between the sheets.
About Nook Sleep Systems
Nook Sleep Systems was started by a group of moms that were tired of the typical baby mattress, filled with toxic materials and covered with vinyl or other like surfaces that do not promote breathability. The organic mattresses available were limited to cotton, which wouldn’t wick moisture away from the skin. With the risk of SIDS on the rise, these moms decided to create the best possible infant sleep solution, and set to work on the Nook crib mattress. Nook was born out of love for their children, and obsession with detail. Nothing that Nook creates needs a cover – from mattresses to pillow cases to chairs. They make the items in a variety of beautiful colors, with leading technology to promote a non-toxic lifestyle that’s durable, beautiful, and safe for your entire family.

This set can be used for its intended purpose of meditation, and when it is not in use for relaxation it can be used for everyday decor, a comfortable spot to sit on your living room floor while playing with the kids, or even the perfect spot for breastfeeding little ones.

All of their products are made in the U.S. and they approach all of their crafting from an ethical standpoint, using appropriate sourcing and production.

About Love Your Melon
Love Your Melon was founded by two students in an entrepreneurship course at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2012. Looking for a way to improve the lives of children battling cancer, the idea was born to provide a hat for every child. Their first goal of donating 45,000 hats was achieved, and the company then moved on to a new goal of raising and donating 1 million dollars to pediatric cancer research and providing support to children and their families, but far exceeded this goal by donating over 2.5 million dollars to date.

Drawing from their heritage and family history in the cacao industry, they started with one modest boutique in southern California, selling unique, signature flavors that have since become the heart of the brand’s chocolate experience.
