Here it is Day 3 of this fun Valentine’s Day Gift guide. Sorry it’s a day late but sometimes things happen and one thing has lead to another this past 24 hours. So please forgive me in not being consistent. For those of you just joining us here is a little background! I thought it would be fun to put a gift guide of sorts together for y’all who are struggling to buy those meaningful gifts for that special someone in your life! I have recruited some help from some beautiful ladies I know! I will be posting 3 ladies’ suggestions for a male and female gift that ranges from high end, to a lower end gift and also my personal favorite a charity or gifts that support a charity! Also, each gorgeous lady has told us about their favorite Valentine’s memory and might I add they all touch my heart! Yes, I am a romantic I would say hopeless romantic but I choose not to be hopeless because their is the right person for each of us out there who are ready to spoil us the best they can. Some just haven’t found their way to us yet hehe! But for you singles out there trust in God’s plan and His timing it is always spot on. So let’s get started with the last day!
Today I have asked 3 ladies who are just simply put just amazing! Each having an amazing story! I will include links to their websites so you can read more about each! So lets dive into to today’s Gift Guide!
Up first the Jenny Gilbert or Go Rope Clothing..
I just love this lady and her great big heart! She is a roper herself, a mom, a wife, a business owner and well she’s amazing! She is a huge supporter of helping others and supporting their dreams. As she says discover what brings you true joy, and use that joy and passion for His glory! I just love that! So let’s dive in and see her picks.
Here are her picks for this Valentine’s Gift Guide
High End Gift
It’s a little cliched, but I think a great Valentine’s Day gift for both men and women is a really good, high end cologne or perfume. Take the time to go pick one out that YOU like for your significant other. My favorite men’s cologne is Acqua di Gio by Armani. For women, I LOVE the scent called Liaisons Dangereuse, Typical Me, by Kilian. It is so unique and sultry–definitely a great perfume for a romantic date night.
(I love that!!)
Low End Gift
Male: Go Rope hats, Go Rope tee shirts, Go Rope pullovers….lol! Sorry, shameless plug there. A great lower end gift idea for a guy would be a Yeti coffee mug. I am constantly borrowing my husband’s. They’re stainless steel, very masculine in appearance, and retail for less than $30.
Female: I am a huge fan of gift cards, so for the ladies, my suggestion would be a gift card to her favorite coffee shop, or a gift card to get a manicure, etc. Pair that with a sweet card and a few hand written sentiments from the heart, and you can’t go wrong.
(These are my favorite for sure! Hey gotta love the plug I love love Go Rope stuff!! And the Yeti coffee mug! YES! I am not sure how I ever lived without mine! Your coffee litteraly stays warm all day in that thing!)
Charity/Gift Supporting Charity
Gosh, this one is tough for me because there are so many amazing charities out there! I want to support them all! I have been a supporter of St. Jude’s Children Hospital for years. They have a great online gift shop where 100% of the profits from the merchandise goes directly to St. Jude’s mission of finding a cure for childhood cancer. They have some really cute tee shirts and hoodies and benefit a wonderful cause.

You know, this might sound sad, but I don’t really have a favorite Valentine’s Day memory. My husband is really great at spontaneous gifts. Not long ago, I got to our office and found a dozen roses waiting on my desk with a note telling me how proud he is of how hard I’ve worked to get Go Rope off the ground running. Those things mean more to me than him showing affection on a designated day.
Awe how sweet is that! That would melt my heart as well I love the out of the blue things like that! I think it is because they just stopped and took the time to let you know. Thank you Jenny so so much for being a part! I’m sending you a big Valentine’s Hug you are amazing lady! xo
Up next is not 1 lady but 2! It is the gorgeous women of Cooped Up Cowboy’s Wife!
I was introduced to these beautiful ladies through their article on Brianna Hall aka The Bleacher Babe. I have fallen in love with their blogs. They have started a new series called The Brave Series and well you seriously need to hop over and read them! I look forward to each weeks blog!!! These lady’s divided up the questions because we get them as a beautiful pair! So lets find what Candace and Kirste have suggested for this Valentine’s!
Here are their picks for this Valentine’s Gift Guide
High End Gift: (Candace)
Male: This is like a way far out there in-his-dreams-kind-of-gift, but my husband, Kody, would love to get a Tracking Point Rifle. He tells me that it’s the most sophisticated shooting system in the world and would run around $8,000, haha, probably not gonna happen. But it’s okay to dream big, right? One year I got his pick-up bed Rhino-Lined and he really loved that, so I guess that’s a little more realistic.
Female: So I guess I’ll apply this to myself, a high end gift that I’d love to receive is a Nikon D3200 camera. I’m loving the memories that I get to preserve in pictures with my family and a better camera than my phone camera would be great!
(Haha I so love these the in his dreams is awesome! But yes Dream BIG!!!)
Low End Gift (Kirste)
Male: We have never been the “smooshy mushy” type of Valentine’s day givers. So at this point in life it’s more about what my husband would use that would be good as a gift. He is definitely a sports/ outdoors kind of guy. One gift that is easy enough to buy (as long as you know sizes) is sports rash guard shirts or any type of hunting wear/jacket ect. which are fairly affordable. If your husband likes anything outdoors from camping to hunting then a good old gift card would be easy enough. At stores like Cabela’s and Sportsmen’s warehouse a $50 gift card would suffice. This is great especially if your not quite sure what to get. They get to take a trip to the outdoors store and pick out whatever they like, and they are content!
Female: I would say for myself that I’m totally a sucker for flowers! I would love flowers because that “feels” more affectionate to me, but I also like a good gift. I like the gifts that have purpose and that you can use. A good lower end gift that I would enjoy is a massage or pedicure gift card. It’s something as mothers, wives that we don’t go and just do by ourself sometimes. We are always taking care of everyone else’s needs that we sometimes put ours behind. You can get away with spending under $100 for a gift card like this and trust me any woman would love getting pampered.
Charity/Gift Supporting Charity (Candace)
Male: The military is very near and dear to my husband’s heart because he views those people as the ultimate heroes. I know that he’d love to donate money towards the Lone Survivor Foundation. This is an organization that provides a place for wounded service members and their families through health, wellness and therapeutic support. You can even purchase commemorative brick that will be laid at the Retreat Facility in honor of someone.
Female: I’d love to support any charity that helps out young mothers. I know there are a few out there like Hope House of Colorado. These young girls are so brave in taking responsibility for raising their children and wanting to provide the best life for their family.
Wow I haven’t ever heard of those foundations but those would be some I would definitely like to be a part of too! Both are very dear to my heart as well!

Most Memorable Valentine’s (Kirste)
The best memory that I have from Valentines day is when I was first dating my husband. He was working in Kansas while I was in Cheyenne, Wyoming for school. I remember getting called out of my equine science class by the superintendent. I thought something must be wrong so I followed him out to the hallway where he told me I had someone waiting for me. I was thinking that it would be CW (my husband now) there to surprise me on valentines day. To my surprise it was another guy… standing there holding flowers. It kind of freaked me out for a moment as I was thinking, “what in the world”. The look on my face probably said it all because as he approached me he said don’t worry these aren’t from me they are from someone else. I was relieved they weren’t from this other gentleman but from my soon to be husband! He had put someone up to getting flowers for me and writing a card since he was so far away! It definitely made my day!
Oh my goodness melt my heart how sweet is that! Haha, I can only imagine what your face looked like! Lol! Thank you so much Candace and Kriste for being apart of this 3 day Valentine’s Gift Guide y’all are blessings and I am grateful to get to know each of you! Sending y’all some Valentine’s Love and Hugs! xo
Here we go last but not least to round out our 3 Day Guide is ME! hehe
Well let me start by saying I haven’t ever been a Valentine yet but I have given some Valentine’s! We have been discussing this a lot at my house though, if you are struggling with being single on Valentine’s Day what is to stop you from being a Valentine to someone who may need a little pick me up? So thus here is my personal interpretation the Single’s Valentine Giving Gift Guide hehe!
Here are my picks!
High End Gift:
Male: I think a gift card to buy a gun of their choice would be super fun! Most of the men in my life love to hunt and shoot!
Female: I think us ladies are always looking for some R&R so I would say a Cruise! They really don’t cost as much as you think either!
Low End Gift
Male: I would make a dessert and a hand written card! I love to bake and I know men like to eat! Hehe! My homemade brownies are a hit from young to old!
Female: Flowers! Even buy a dozen and give 12 roses away to random ladies! Watch them light up!
Charity/Gift Supporting Charity (Candace)
There have been so many amazing places talked about over the last 3 days. Something that has been very dear to my heart is children fighting cancer. It breaks my heart to know a child has to go through something so big, but to watch them rise up with strength and fight is so inspiring. So I would buy and have bought from Love Your Melon! They are on a mission to put a hat on every child’s head who fight cancer. Also, I will take this one step further! Jenny with Go Rope and our first lady up today introduced me to the story of sweet little Faith! Faith is so inspiring and she is fighting cancer. I know she will conquer this quest she is on as well! She is a beautiful little girl! I have only met her once but you can tell there is something so sweet and special about her! So I would donate to little Miss Faith! If you are looking to help and donate somewhere this Valentine’s Day or would love to bless someone just because this little girl would be a great place! A link to her Go Fund Me page is below just click her smiling face wearing the Love Your Melon hat! 😉

Well not so sure just yet! I love that my mom would always get me and my little sister a box of conversation hearts every year growing up! So they have grown to be a tradition even if I buy myself a box! Hehe! I just love those things! Even last year Momma Jo got me some which totally made my Valentine’s Day!

I pray for each and every one of these amazing guests and each reader that you are truly blessed this day and everyday! That your heart is overflowing with peace, love and joy!
