Red Envelope Review and $50 Giveaway

Winner Comment #138 - pmj said...Entered Special Edition Valentines Day Pillow Pet giveaway


Valentines Day is just two weeks away! So to get into the spirit of things, the next few weeks are going to be all about Love on One Day at a Time!  We're going to be highlighting products and stores that make finding that perfect Valentines Day Present easier.

It's okay to get creative and more personal in your Valentines Day present selection, but don't overlook the classics!  I know it sounds cliche, but some of my favorite things to get on Valentines Day from my Sweetheart are jewelery, flowers, and chocolate.  Actually I love getting them any time of the year! 

One of my favorite places to find jewelry is RedEnvelope.com.  They have chunky, simple, personalized, and modern!


When I was browsing around their site I absolutely fell in love with their Good Fortune Necklace.


I love the diamond-cut snake chain and the pieced together bamboo circle.  I also love the color!  I've been looking for a great green necklace for awhile and was afraid that the green jewel would have too much of a yellow tint.  But it's absolutely beautiful.  The green is just right and the necklace as a whole just looks expensive! 

Jewelry isn't necessarily a traditional mens' present, but Red Envelope has a great selection of mens' Valentines Day presents as well.


I love the pocket compass and the color of this tie is perfect for Valentines Day.  If you look closely at the tie you'll notice that there is a little envelope with a heart sticking out.  With these you can leave your Sweetheart a new secret message each time they wear the tie.  Love it.

To Buy - There is a reason that jewelry and other such items are one of the most common Valentines Day Presents - Classic elegance never goes out of style!  Red Envelop has a great selection of products for everyone on your list.  And right now you can get a 10% discount with 10OFFRED.
