Plan a Made in USA Valentine’s Day: Our Women’s + Men’s Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! I’m excited but I know some people don’t enjoy it. Some see it as just another excuse to engage in consumerist behavior.  In any case, buying gifts that support the US economy is one way to feel justified in splurging for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re making a purchase for your special someone, a friend, or someone in your family, I selected gifts for men and women that I think appeal to a wide spectrum of interests. I hope you find a match!

I’ve tried all the following products. Read why they are my favorites to buy for yourself or as a Valentine’s Day gift for someone you love.

Made in USA Valentine's Day
I love this line of handmade eco-friendly bath products from Kevin’s Closet! I’ve tried the body balm and body lotion in the Lemongrass Calendula scent.  I love how luxurious they make your skin feel and how the lemongrass fragrance relaxes you. The lotion goes on a bit greasy, but quickly absorbs into your skin and leaves it feeling silky smooth.  I suggest the gift crate which includes two 8 oz body lotions, a 8 oz. body oil and a 6 oz. body balm with two toddler or infant tees. The site is offering 25% off with code HEART25, through February 8, 2013. Find out more about the line and why you’ll feel good about supporting it.

For Valentine’s day chocolate, I suggest Lake Champlain Chocolates. It’s one of my favorite American chocolate brands because it’s not sickening sweet. Their chocolate is creamy and smooth. There are Valentine’s Day gifts ranging from $6 to $109, so you can buy something for everyone on your list. I suggest the Be Mine Frog or the Friendly Frog Valentine’s Day 6 piece Box. Lake Champlain Chocolates are sold at many retailers across the country, including Whole Foods, but you can search easily on their website for the nearest location to you.

What man wouldn’t be happy with a koozie? I recently found cool ones by Beer Hugz, a line of stylish, and ergonomic beer bottle and can holders. Since they are stylish, I love these for everyday use, outdoor parties or game days, and so will everyone else!

Shop these suggestions as well. Be sure to tweet and pin your favorites and use the hashtag #LoveListed to let those you love see what you’re wishing for this Valentine’s Day!
