  *DISCLOSURE* Thank you to The Perfect Jean for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 

We have the perfect gift idea for men this Valentine'sDay...check out The Perfect Jean:


The folks at The Perfect Jean's mission was to find a reasonably-priced stretch jean that men could comfortably wear all day no matter what the day has in store.  Success!


The Perfect Jean comes in styles and fits for every man, plus enough color choices to keep things fresh.  We are loving the Slim Thick style...athletic, but not too baggy and not too skinny.  



We think they are the Goldilocks of men's jeans...just right!




 A medium rise jean, moderately fitted through the hips and thigh.  Proper room at the knees and calves without being baggy and tapered at the bottom with a leg opening perfect for your kicks.  These jeans are crazy stretchy and uber comfortable, plus they look great on!  It doesn't get much better than that!  Give your Valentine the gift of comfort and style that will last all year long.

#ValentinesDayGiftGuide - Tea Runners Subscription for Tea Lovers!

 *DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Tea Runners for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 

If your Valentine is a tea lover, today's gift idea can't be beat!  Check out one of our favorite places to get yummy teas and useful tea accessories...Tea Runners! 


Tea Runners is your one stop shop for amazing and unique teas and tea accessories.  They have awesome subscriptions that can be customized to your tea preferences.  Here is a peek at what a typical subscription looks like:


What's In Each Box:
Each box contains 4 loose leaf teas with tasting notes and steeping instructions
Each pouch contains about 1 oz of tea
Enough tea for about 30-40 cups per box
Over 350 teas on their roster with more added monthly, and less popular ones dropped
Rare, hard to find teas from small batch producers


Take a closer look at these fantastic teas:


White Chocolate Peppermint

This delicious caffeine-free tea tastes like an indulgence without the guilt. Green rooibos is given the holiday treatment with organic cacao nibs and a kiss of peppermint, beautifully balanced and rich.


Try it with warm milk and perhaps your favorite piece of chocolate on the side!

Almond Sugar Cookie Dessert


This gorgeous tea is the perfect caffeinated indulgence. Strong black tea gets the sweet treatment with toasted almonds and almond sugar cookie, while the chocolatey and slightly smoky flavor of safflower balances everything out. Try it on its own, or add warm milk to further its decadence.


Caramel Toffee Pu-erh

Rich and velvety, this pu-erh is great for a pick me up and serves as a delicious dessert, all in one.


Notes of toasted pistachio and hazelnut are at the forefront while creamy caramel and buttered toffee sweeten the deal.  Excellent on its own or further richened with a dash of warm milk.

Flowering Feng Qing Tea Cones

These delightful tea cones are hand-made from the highest quality Feng Qing Dian Hong black tea from Yunnan, China.


Buttery, malty, and naturally sweet, this deliciously fun tea is meant to be steeped multiple times. Watch your tea cone unfurl like a flower when brewed; a perfect fit for our chic glass teapots.

Speaking of glass tea pots, here is one of the gorgeous options Tea Runners offers:


Tea Runners Easy Brew Glass Teapot

The Tea Runners Easy Brew Glass Teapot is a very simple and effective way to enjoy your teas. This teapot is made of sturdy borosilicate glass, making it very resistant to cracks from thermal shock (hot temps) and breaks. 


Easy Brew teapots are perfect for allowing your full leaf teas to expand in water. Watch your tea leaves unfurl and dance around inside the container as they steep. Although it looks like a French press, this teapot is not a press and does not have moving parts. The strainer at the top simply filters the tea as you pour it in your cup.

Tea Runners is the only major tea subscription service that allows full customization of every shipment.  They have several subscription options, ranging from $22 to $26 per box.  Shipping to US and Canada is FREE for all subscription boxes.

Tea Runners is great for discovering all kinds of awesome teas and would make a lovely gift for your tea-loving Valentine this year!
