Hipster Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2013

Are you a fan of Valentine’s Day?

I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day.

I spent so many years single that V-Day became a day of celebrating my bitter, unrelenting scorn.

But now this will be my second holiday with someone special and I realize that I didn’t dislike V-day because I was single, I just don’t like it period.


Actually, most holidays are stupid- except for Halloween. That is not a stupid holiday.

But you know what?

A lot of really cool people make really cool stuff that make great Valentine’s Day gifts.  Their stuff is so hip, it makes me want to celebrate Valentine’s Day every day (which I kind of do already- that’s why I think having a holiday to express your love  is silly-willy).

As some of you know, I’m friends with the fine folks over at Scoutmob.

Their artisan shoppe boasts a kick-ass collection of handmade art, clothing and decor by talented folks in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Detroit…and Austin. Our very own Austin-bred Vinca Jewelry, Creative Scratchings, Mischa Blaise and others are featured on the Scoutmob Shoppe.

The talented lady at Scoutmob who combs America’s hippest cities for unique wares so you don’t have to- Allie- hand-selected items on the Shoppe especially for this blog post. I added a few of my faves too.

Don’t get your lady or dude flowers or chocolates for V-day, get them something one-of-a-kind, and in doing so, help support local artists!

    I love Valentine’s day and I’ve never ever had a good one! I’m the happy nonbeliever. Who needs that dinosaur necklace.
