The Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer is a great Valentine’s Day gift because it’s something all women would love to have, but most likely wouldn’t buy it for themselves. As women, we’ve been put through the ringer when it comes to hairdryers over our lifetime. The Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer eliminates everything women hate about a hairdryer including being too bulk, fried hair, frizz, and taking forever to get the job done. The Dyson dries hair fast while keeping it smooth, less frizzy, and most importantly – no more fried hair. The gift of less hassle and no more bad hair days is priceless.

Yes as in John Elway, the Denver Broncos hall-of-famer. Also as in Elway’s the upscale steak restaurant in Denver. Elway’s is a 7 time recipient of the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator magazine and is known for it’s extensive wine list and high end cuisine. So naturally it makes sense that they capture that celebratory spirit and experience of the Elway restaurants and capture it in a bottle of wine. Elway’s Reserve comes in the form of a 2014 Carneros Chardonnay and a 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Even though the Super Bowl is now behind us, a bottle of 7 Cellars’ Elway’s Reserve is a touchdown addition to any Valentine’s Day. Yay sports!

“For him?” shouted Snape. “Expecto Patronum!”
“Expecto Patronum!” From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe: She landed on the office floor, bounded once across the office, and soared out of the window. Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears. “After all this time?” “Always,” said Snape. – Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows

Designed to go wherever her adventures may take both of you, the EcoSlate from ECOXGEAR is a fully waterproof, dust proof and drop-proof bluetooth speaker.

Another great design feature is the built-in 100 lumen lantern, which has an integrated dimmer – making it a great camping companion. The EcoSlate also allows you to recharge your phone or other devices via USB as well. However, the best feature of all is the acoustics. This little speaker can jam! Harnessing two 10W full range stereo speakers the EcoSlate has some nice sound quality.

The Jackson Glacier Parka provides the classic winter parka style which is, knee length, hooded and puffy. It isn’t flashy, just a practical winter coat. What sets it apart is the trimmer, more streamlined cut of the coat. Providing a more snug fit to keep you warm while looking much less boxy than other parkas. I love the way this coat looks with my snow boots and a chunky winter hat as well as some fashion booties and a scarf.
If your valentine is looking parka and lives in a region where weather conditions can get downright nasty-cold, this coat will not disappoint.
