RedEnvelope Valentine's Day Gifts {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Chantal!}

When it comes to Valentine's Day, it's always fun to get (or give) a creative, unique gift... but there is also something to be said for the classics.

I mean, flowers wouldn't be sent by the dozen, chocolates by the truckload and jewelry by box after sweet little box if there weren't recipients overjoyed about them year after year, right?

So wouldn't it be nice if there was a place that offered both? Somewhere that you could visit and know that you could find everything from beautiful Valentine's Day jewelry to creative, personalized apparel to something romantic that you and your loved one could enjoy together?

Well of course that's possible! Exactly that is found at none other than the site known for finding the perfect gift for each and every occasion: RedEnvelope.

As I discovered with my earlier RedEnvelope giveaway, the hardest part about shopping there is figuring out where to start. Should I browse RedEnvelope Valentine's Day gifts for her? Or think of my husband and start with gifts for him? There are just so many wonderful things!

And... I did look for something for my husband. Honestly, I really did. Because I thought items like the Dad Cuff Links and the Reasons I Love You Pajamas were incredibly fun and very sweet...

The pajama pants have adorable sayings like "I love it when we stay up all night and talk," "I love it when it seems we are the only ones in the room" and "I love it when your hand reaches for mine" on them. Awwwww!

But then I asked his opinion on an item or two and he was the one who decided to select something for me instead. How could I say no to that?

And when one of RedEnvelope's signature red boxes arrived, it was all that I could do to pull open the grosgrain ribbon and marvel what awaited me inside.

The Diamond Eternity Earrings were even more beautiful in person than I thought they would be. With 34 total diamonds measuring 0.1224CTW, I knew (and was glad) that these wouldn't be large, flashy earrings. Instead, I was hoping for something petite and elegant - something classic that could be worn to add sparkle to jeans and a sweater or to give a pop of dazzle if worn with a dress on a night out.

Which is just what these round-cut diamonds on their 5/16" diameter endless circle provide.
Not too big, not too small. Just right for beautiful sophistication and style.

I have worn previous sets of earrings in which the post is flimsy or the back is loose and I spent far too much time checking and rechecking every five minutes whether or not one had fallen out (which happened multiple times). But these Diamond Eternity Earrings are extremely sturdy and the friction back stays firmly in place the entire time I'm wearing them - no more worries about another lost earring!

These earrings were exactly what I was looking for and, retailing for $79.95, cost much less than those that are found in jewelry stores. They were definitely the perfect early-Valentine's Day gift!

When it comes to gift-giving, RedEnvelope makes it simple and fun... and, in the case of Valentine's Day, so sweet and romantic as well. With apparel, jewelry, accessories, roses, gourmet treats and more in a variety of price ranges, there is sure to be something to impress your loved one (or as a special treat for yourself) this holiday. Many can even be personalized with a monogram or custom message to make them even more special!

With fast shipping, easy returns and a guarantee that backs all of their products, RedEnvelope is the place to shop this February... and then return for future holidays and occasions as well. You can't go wrong! And, thanks to their generosity, one person will have an amazing Valentine's Day gift to surprise their sweetie with as well, because...

One person will win their choice of any RedEnvelope
Valentine's Day gift* up to $70!
