LET’S START WITH GETTING COZY
It’s the time of year that we love to get cozy at home, and Lovesac has the perfect gift to do just that: It’s the Lovesac Room for Two Footsac Blanket. It is soft and warm with a built-in pocket for your feet. It is big enough to share, to keep you and your partner warm at night.

For even more coziness, there’s also “The world’s most comfortable seat” known as The Sac. The Sac may look like a beanbag, but they are so much more. Filled with a proprietary blend of recycled foam remnants called Durafoam™, and available in multiple sizes and covers to complement any space, Sacs are the closest you’ll get to sitting on an actual cloud. They’re the perfect combination for a date night in. Get them at: https://www.lovesac.com/sacs.html

WHAT ABOUT PET OWNERS WHO LOVE TO GIFT THEIR PETS FOR HOLIDAYS?
We see in surveys that a majority of pet owners love to involve their pets in holidays. So, this is a practical way to do it for Valentine’s Day. It’s the BaBylissPRO PET Rose Gold Micro Trimmer. Now, this is part of the beautiful rose gold collection of brushes, shears, combs and trimmers.
Pets really love this because it has a quiet motor. It’s also palm shaped. it easily fits in your hand during light trimming. It’s cordless, battery operated, and really designed for freedom of movement. The dog thinks he’s getting a belly rub every time I take this out. Very reasonably priced as well. This is a BaByliss product and I wish that my hair accessories were this pretty.

Romantic, radiant colors of eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick. It is filled with velvet magic, gleaming metallics, think pinks, smoldering nudes. You can mix and match, go very smoky or very soft.
