Although we believe in celebrating loved ones every day of the year, Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion for showering them with sweet treats, thoughtful offerings and gifts from the heart. This year, we’re shying away from the classic teddy bear and a heart-shaped box of chocolates and opting instead for Southern-made goodies. Here are 14 gifts they’ll love — each available at SB Shop. Take a look! (Note: All orders must be placed by Monday, February 7 for on-time Valentine’s Day delivery.)
JEWELRY & ACCESSORIES
Carden Avenue necklace, earrings and bracelet
Carden Avenue pieces are always unique, wearable, personal, and affordable. This year, we’ve brought back some best-selling items from the past, including the gold-filled, tarnish-resistant open heart necklace ($88), the “XO” earrings ($42) and the golden links bracelet with a heart charm ($108). Shop these items and more HERE.
OMI Beads (in a color trending for fashion in 2021)
Brand new SB + OMI Beads exclusive sets have just hit SB Shop! As fashion designers turn away from the neutral colors and embrace color for 2021, we welcome it! These optimistic colors are making us happy. One big color play is pink. OMI Beads founder Joy Walling created this perfect-for-spring pink set ($120) complete with five multi-colored beads, gold charms and a soft pink geode. From your all-white outfits to ones filled with color, this arm candy will make you smile and complete your outfit. Shop this set and more HERE.
And, continuing with the pink color trend for Spring 2021 just mentioned, this gorgeous soft pink tote from Hanner Clarke completes your late winter outfit just as nicely as your spring and summer ones. “The Evelyn” ($650) is made from buttery-soft, lightweight Italian leather and is large enough to carry everything you need (even a laptop) without overpowering you. A light paisley print on durable cotton lining makes the inside just as beautiful as the outside, and the braided handles are the perfect added touch. Shop this bag and more HERE.
