Valentines Day Clothing and Accessories

When it comes to Valentine’s Day many people will put together an outfit that represents the holiday. For adults, this holiday represents the love that they feel for each other so they will wear the color red or pink. They may wear a heart pattern or they may wear a pattern that features red roses. For children its a day to “dress up” in a Valentine's outfit for school or parties.  On this holiday children will hand out friendly “will you be my Valentine” cards to their friends and their classmates.
Valentine's Day holiday is represented by red hearts, red roses, chocolates and the wearing of the clothing that indicates that you love the holiday or that you are in love with that special someone. Overall Valentine’s day is a fun day of gift-giving, exchanging of holiday cards and expressing love to each other.

Women will wear shirts with a valentines day pattern, or they may wear accessories, earrings, necklaces, scarf or even a belt. Men will wear a heart pattern tie to work and if they take their special someone out for dinner, they will dress to impress and wear Valentine’s Day printed tie.

Dressing up for Valentine’s Day is fun for kids and adults. Here are a few of my fashion and accessory designs and other designers products that I found at Zazzle.   

Happy Valentine's Day everyone, and don’t forget that this holiday is on February 14th

Beer Steins For Daily Use or Occasion Gifts

Beer steins come in a variety of styles, and shapes and are made out of stoneware, pewter, porcelain, glass, and ceramic. Some have hinged tops with a thumb lever that is used to open the lid so that you can drink from the stein. and others have open tops. Steins are used for drinking beer however at my house we use them as a display on our mantle and in a glass case. Rarely do we drink beer from them but that is not to say that we have not enjoyed them over the years during the holidays and at an Oktoberfest dinner.

The classic beer stein that you would find in Germany or Bavaria is made out of stoneware and the designs are quite unique. The steins are usually sold for special occasions like a housewarming party, a holiday, or for a special event. Many people collect the steins because of their style and the ornamental designs.

Since my husband is a collector I make a point to buy him a stein every Christmas. He has a few pewter steins with hinged tops that are from the early 1900s and are handmade German steins. These antiques never come out of the glass cabinet. They are truly prized for their craftsmanship. He also collects the Budweiser Clydesdale steins, the holiday series that began in 1980. Like any collector, my husband will buy steins that are part of a series, antique steins,s, and steins for everyday usage.

The beer steins at Zazzle are perfect for everyday use or for giving as a housewarming. birthday, Christmas or another occasion gift. The stein features a traditional German design that has ornate borders at the rim and base and a detailed handle. The beer stein is available in 2 colors; white with metallic gold and gray with blue color.  Another feature is that you can buy them as shown or you can upload your own photograph or logo and make your own.

What I liked about Zazzle’s beer steins is they have good look at them and we can use them daily if we want and do not have to worry if they are broken. They would also be thoughtful Christmas gifts or housewarming gifts for anyone who likes to drink beer.

Here are a few of my favorite stein designs. All were created by the independent designers at Zazzle.  Click the highlighted blue link under the stein image and this will take you to the designer's store where you can view a larger image of the stein, learn more and buy.
