Last week we gave you some gift ideas for the guys, and promised to return this week with some ideas for the ladies! While we definitely can’t argue that a nice home cooked meal or flowers is plenty for lots of folks, we also know that some people still love to give a little something extra.
Psstt… if you’re looking for step-by-step instructions on stuff you can DIY yourself, check out this awesome roundup from Craftfoxes. And if you’re feeling extra crafty, we suggest trying to make any of the things from our roundup yourself!
These wooden birds help support the heart nestled between them, acting as a symbolic representation of the compromise and compassion that it takes to make love work.

This bowl is perfect for your gal to keep her precious jewelry in while she showers, washes her hands, etc. Cribbed from the famous e.e. cummings poem, the dish is handmade by artist Caroline Colom Vasquez with the beautiful words, “I Carry Your Heart.” Made of fine, white ceramic with a semi-matte finish, the shallow dish holds a free-standing heart token as a symbol of lasting affection. (Uncommon Goods, $32)
Wanna get flowers and something awesome to put them in? How nice of you! We suggest this small vase (maybe make it a single stem?) for the lady who really saved you and makes your world more beautiful. Hand-painted in Vermont by Beth Mueller. (Uncommon Goods, $32)
