14 Gifts We Actually Want For Valentines Day

Here Are 14 Valentine's Gift Ideas To Save As Many Girlfriends As Possible From Receiving A Ridiculously Sized Teddy Bear.
Valentines Day is right around the corner..

For the typical 20-something American that means one thing- panic. Some of us are panicking because we are single on Valentines, yet again. The rest of us are panicking because we don't have a clue what to buy for our girlfriends or boyfriends that won't completely suck. With listening ears, and some strong opinions from many college students I came up with a go to list. So to save as many girlfriends as possible from receiving a ridiculously sized teddy bear they won't have room for in their apartments anyways, I am sharing this list of

Things People In Their 20-Somethings Actually Want For Valentines Day.

1. Dollar Shave club

Razors are like $24 a pop. Send razors directly to your special someone's door, and never worry about them prickling you when you snuggle again!


2. Alcohol

Okay, maybe not a bottle of Barefoot or a case of Natural Lite. Go out to a local brewery and buy your one-of-a-kind lover a one-of-a-kind brew!


3. Amazon Prime

What says I Love You more than free 2-day shipping for a year?! Not to mention all of the free movies, TV shows, Music, and more available through a prime membership. If you really want to make your special someone's day, you could even buy Alexa and give a gift that they will use every day to simplify their life.

4. K-Cups

These bad boys are pricey and essential! My advice to anyone who wants to win my heart- get me caffeinated. What's better than a gift that makes someone think for you every morning when they start their day?


5. Socks

Funny how the taboo gift of your childhood becomes an all-time favorite in adulthood. I'm not talking Hanes people. I'm talking wool. I'm talking insulated. I'm talking socks that will knock your socks off! My personal favorite are the brand FITS.


6. Spotify Premium

Hours of music that I can download and listen to anytime, and I don't have to use my data? Sign me up! Way better than an iTunes gift card.

7. A Corckcicle

This new insulated brand deserves 5 Stars! they've got everything from their signature whisky wedge to their insulated bottle that can hold a complete bottle of wine. These will keep your sweet tea cold for up to 24hrs and your coffee warm for 12hr; but mostly, its sure to warm hearts as a valentine gift.


8. Bose Mini Blu Tooth Speaker

This blu tooth speaker puts all others to shame! They're battery life is long lasting which makes this piece super portable for anywhere you may need it.


9. Tickets To A Music Festival

Everyone loves a music festival. The only thing that could make them any better is going with someone you love.

10. Birch Box $30

This is the gift that keeps on giving. Seriously, every month they'll get a new package full of great new beauty products sent to them.


11. Ancestry DNA $99

This one is fun and you can do it together. The only down side is that you have to wait a few weeks for the results.

12. Rubber wine glass

Great for tailgating, the beach, or just a clumsy drunk. These are so fun! They can be personalized, and they're dishwasher safe.


13. Jewelry with a purpose

I know, Walmart and Khole's have their finest selection of heart necklaces on display this time of year, but go off the beaten path-It will pay off. Puravida bracelets and wanderer Bracelets are two really popular casual brands that also give back. A step up from that would be the Alex and Ani line. All of theses brands offer personal jewelry that is unique to the person receiving it.




14. Pay a bill. ANY. BILL.

Whatever you give or get, and whoever you celebrate with-

don't forget to give some love this Valentines Day.

When You Give A Girl A Dad

You give her everything

They say that any male can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad. That dads are just the people that created the child, so to speak, but rather, dads raise their children to be the best they can be. Further, when you give a little girl a dad, you give her much more than a father; you give her the world in one man.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her a rock.

Life is tough, and life is constantly changing directions and route. In a world that's never not moving, a girl needs something stable. She needs something that won't let her be alone; someone that's going to be there when life is going great, and someone who is going to be there for her when life is everything but ideal. Dads don't give up on this daughters, they never will.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her a role model.

If we never had someone to look up to, we would never have someone to strive to be. When you give a little girl someone to look up to, you give her someone to be. We copy their mannerisms, we copy their habits, and we copy their work ethic. Little girls need someone to show them the world, so that they can create their own.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her the first boy she will ever love.

And I'm not really sure someone will ever be better than him either. He's the first guy to take your heart, and every person you love after him is just a comparison to his endless, unmatchable love. He shows you your worth, and he shows you what your should be treated like: a princess.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her someone to make proud.

After every softball game, soccer tournament, cheerleading competition, etc., you can find every little girl looking up to their dads for their approval. Later in life, they look to their dad with their grades, internships, and little accomplishments. Dads are the reason we try so hard to be the best we can be. Dads raised us to be the very best at whatever we chose to do, and they were there to support you through everything. They are the hardest critics, but they are always your biggest fans.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her a credit card.

It's completely true. Dads are the reason we have the things we have, thank the Lord. He's the best to shop with too, since he usually remains outside the store the entire time till he is summoned in to forge the bill. All seriousness, they always give their little girls more than they give themselves, and that's something we love so much about you.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her a shoulder to cry on.

When you fell down and cut yourself, your mom looked at you and told you to suck it up. But your dad, on the other hand, got down on the ground with you, and he let you cry. Then later on, when you made a mistake, or broke up with a boy, or just got sad, he was there to dry your tears and tell you everything was going to be okay, especially when you thought the world was crashing down. He will always be there to tell you everything is going to be okay, even when they don't know if everything is going to be okay. That's his job.

When you give a girl a dad, you give her a lifelong best friend.

My dad was my first best friend, and he will be my last. He's stood by me when times got tough, he carried me when I just couldn't do it anymore, and he yelled at me when I deserved it; but the one thing he has never done was give up on me. He will always be the first person I tell good news to, and the last person I ever want to disappoint. He's everything I could ever want in a best friend and more.

Dads are something out of a fairytale. They are your prince charming, your knight in shinny amour, and your fairy godfather. Dads are the reasons we are the people we are today; something that a million "thank you"' will never be enough for.

6 Reasons Crocs Are The Superior Shoe

Recent debates have come to light and it's time to set the record straight: Crocs are the superior shoe.


Long time Croc enthusiast Athena Schnorr states, "Crocs have always been there for me in the rough times, the good times, the bad weather, the good weather they have quite literally kept me afloat"

The days of sacrificing fashion over function are over. Crocs are bridging the gap in the fashion industry, but incase you aren't convinced here are six reasons why Crocs are superior to any other shoe.

1. Crocs Are Highly Functional 

Crocs are undervalued for their supreme functionality. I can not count the times I have needed to jump in a rain puddle, take a quick walk, or bounce along throughout my day without the hassle of lace and what better shoe than an easy and colorful Croc? Crocs offer wonderful support without the hassle of worrying about getting your feet or shoes permanently stained.

2. Crocs Are Water Resistant

They say April showers bring May flowers, but May actually has brought storms with rain equivalents feeling like a tsunami. Nothing ruins a day faster than wet socks and soggy shoes as you hike uphill to class and start your day. Crocs are made of supreme rubber material that hinders any challenge the rain could present. To make things even better, once it's time to dry your shoes off from the rain Crocs rise to the challenge and dry off in a jiffy, making them ready to wear again at any moment.

3. Crocs Offer Convenient Sports Mode

Some might argue that Crocs aren't the most reliable fashion statement because of the exposed heel. After all, how would you run through the summer with an exposed heel? Thank goodness for sports mode. Kick your Croc clogs into action by switching the front facing band into the down and locked position. Spots mode is the solution to all your problems.

4. Crocs Come In a Variety of Colors

In these trying times, self expression comes in so many forms and is so vital to our daily lives. Croc offer a wide variety of styles and colors that are bound to suit the needs of any individual. School colors, family matching, his and hers, even sparkly white crocs for your wedding day. There is no limit to the color Crocs can sport, and even better, they will match every outfit.

5. Crocs Can Be Decorative

Following on the coat tails of self expression, crocs offer a variety of customizable options for individuals to express themselves. Crocs are known for their accessories, Jibbittz. Jibbitz come in so many shapes and colors, that regardless of your age, are sure to please.

6. The Best Is Yet To Come

By now, I know it can be hard to believe, but the best season of Crocs are yet to come. Crocs are launching their newest addition to the rubbery life savers- fanny packs. That's right, something that was already great, just got even better. In their newest line, crocs will be adding small fanny packs to the sports mode straps on Crocs. By the looks of it, if Crocs keep improving their line, the best is yet to come.
