Thrifting and gifting comes as a breeze to style expert and author, Lilliana Vazquez. Her passion for fashion has led her to being an expertise in the craft, and with Valentine’s Day around the corner, she's partnering with T.J.Maxx and Marshalls to share her expert tips on finding the perfect gift for your amor.
Whether you’re in that awkward getting to know each other phase or in a deep relationship, see what type of gifts Vazquez suggests, below:
For Him: Shopping for guys can be just as difficult as shopping for girls, especially for a romantic holiday. However, Vazquez says you can never go wrong with technology! Whether you get him a pair of sleek headphones or a trendy watch, he’ll be sure to love it.
For Her: Fellas, if you really have no idea what to get your lady, jewelry is the way to go! If you just started dating and may not know her preference just yet, Vazquez says to opt for a classic piece like simple pair of oversized-stud earrings, or a delicate bracelet. If you’re deep in your relationship, Vazquez suggests buying something she'll be able to wear on special occasions like chandelier earrings or a glam cuff.
For Both: If you're low on cash this V-day, remember it’s the thought that counts. Our fave fashionista says that gourmet candy is always a safe bet. Fill up a woven basket with an assortment of gourmet candy or chocolates for a sweet delight — plus they’ll be able to reuse the basket. Setting the mood with champagne flutes and a cozy “love” pillow will also make for a great gift you both can share!
