Valentine’s Day Edition of Maria Falzo’s Hip List

Hip New Jersey’s own Maria Falzo has a few Valentine’s Day gift suggestions available through Grove Giftables in Cedar Grove. Maria and store owner Stacia have compiled a list of gift ideas for #HipNJ suitable for everyone in your life.

With the harsh winter we’ve had in New Jersey, what could be better than a cozy knitted hat? If there is a newborn in your life, the colorful hats for babies are an adorable and practical gift. Matching mommy-and-me hats are a cute option for parents and toddlers who like to maintain a chic wardrobe despite the winter weather.

Fitting for almost anyone in the family, the stylish S’ip by S’well bottles come in regular and large sizes. The caps are tethered to the bottle for children who have a penchant to misplace items. Grove Giftables can customize the bottles by etching your loved-one’s initials into the design. Regular-sized bottles cost $19.99 while large will run you $24.99.

For teachers or anyone who prefers to avoid sweets, there are fun and sparkly homemade soaps. Each soap is heart-shaped and comes in an assortment or V-Day colors. Individually, the soaps are $9 and a mason jar full of soaps cost $22.

Homemade cookies with Valentine’s Day messages inscribed in them are great for those with a sweet tooth. These go well inside a trendy #Love mug so you can enjoy your confections with a warm beverage.

The fashionable yet functional Bogg Bag is a excellent gift for any holiday but especially for that special lady on Valentine’s Day. The tote is waterproof and washable – great for a weekend away or a day at the beach. Stacia is offering a special for a Bogg Bag and a S’ip by S’well bottle purchased together.

Head down to Grove Giftables and check out their inventory of gifts for everyone in your life this Valentine’s Day.
