Sent With Love
As far back as I can remember we always celebrated Valentine’s Day; it was a tradition I grew up with and continued when I became a mom. My daughters (a UF graduate and a current UF student) have not been home for Valentine’s Day for years so I use the holiday as an opportunity to send them a little love from home.
There are so many gift ideas for Valentine’s Day. Just sharing the love from HaveUHeard. We’ve added links to websites and products, (and yes, the ads and links that appear on our blogs are partners of HaveUHeard. ALL opinions about products mentioned in our blogs are 100% our own. We hope you will patronize these businesses. Partnerships like these make HaveUHeard possible)
SWEETS FOR THE SWEET!
What student doesn’t love candy? For that matter, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love candy. We ALL love candy! Create a care package filled with chocolate hearts, chocolate kisses, Sweethearts Valentine ’s Day candy, M&M’s- everyone’s favorites! Yes, trust me, they are already out in the stores.
Another great option is a Valentines Day Gourmet Covered Chocolate Pretzel Gift Box.
COMFY & COZY
I’ve always given my kids comfy pajamas, decorative pillows, and throws or just something that they will use and think of home. Here are some comfy, cozy suggestions that will give your student a warm cozy feeling. Check out Gap boxers for the guys or Victoria’s Secret Pink for the girls. Kohl’s has cute Valentine’s Day pillows, Nordstrom has some warm, cozy items from and Francesca’s is a great place to find decorative wall art. All to remind your student of how much they are loved!

Beats by Dr. Dre
EVERYBODY WANTS THIS!
This is the most requested audio brands for headphones, earphones, and speakers and also one of the most in-demand holiday gift items by our student panel. Most students prefer the wireless version. Best Buy, Walmart, and Target all sell this brand.
Apple Watch – A great item to track your heart rate (and workouts) to encourage a healthy routine. Also, discreet way to check texts, emails, calendar, and social media. Check out Amazon, Walmart, Target or Best Buy.
Fitbit – today’s health-conscious students like to measure their fitness results and a Fitbit allows them to do that and so much more with their newer models. The Fitbit ionic works with Bluetooth headphones and stores and plays music- perfect for when they head to the gym or are out for a run. Check out Macy’s or Best Buy or Walmart
Yoga Pants – Of course, they wear yoga pants… all the time. If they are really doing yoga, great; if not, keep your equilibrium and walk around looking like they are on the way to a yoga class!- Check out Aerie, Athleta, Yoga Outlet, and Lululemon.
Water bottles-– Our environmentally conscious students love these popular water bottles. A red S’well bottle makes a great gift.
