Why Not Shop at Claire's?

If you frequently shop at the mall, it's no doubt you have seen Claire's. It is the cute store with jewelry, bags, boots, and other accessories aimed at teenage girls. You've probably seen small groups of pre-teens and teenagers hanging out at the store. Maybe you've even heard some Justin Bieber music blasting from the speakers. Naturally, if you are an adult, you might find this intimidating. You probably think you don't belong in a store like Claire's and you certainly don't think you should go shopping for Valentine's Day stuff in a place like that. Well, you are wrong.

Don't be afraid to shop at Claire's my fellow grown women readers (and hey, some grown men - I'm not here to judge). If you like cute accessories, Claire's a great store to visit. This is especially the case if you are looking for something cute and inexpensive for Valentine's Day. Many women like to wear just a cute bracelet or cute earrings to celebrate a holiday. For a holiday like Valentine's Day, naturally you don't want to go overboard. Claire's is the perfect store if you want to pick up a little something. Right now, they are even having a "buy one, get one 50% off sale" for Valentine's Day items. So what are you waiting for?

Valentine's Day Items for You!

If you'd like to pick up something inexpensive and not too fancy to wear for Valentine's Day, Claire's is probably going to be the best place to go. They sell jewelry for about $5 to $9. Yes, that is all. Now, of course, I am not talking about expensive Kay's quality jewelry or anything like that. I am talking about the type of jewelry that is pretty and suitable to wear the two weeks leading up to Valentine's Day. I mean the type of jewelry that says, "I am festive, but I am not going to overspend."

The earrings are especially nice at Claire's. Obviously they are not made to look expensive, but they really cute. You can find a number of heart shaped items, as well as pretty shiny or glittery earrings. If you like dangly earrings - they've got them. If you like studded earrings - they've got them. You won't pay much, so you won't be bummed out when they don't necessarily look appropriate for wear after Valentine's Day. Although, honestly, some of the Valentine's Day jewelry is completely fine to wear all year long.

You can also get other cute items like Valentine's Day hair accessories, Valentine's Day socks, sparkly red pens, and cute heart shaped paperweights. If you are the type of person that loves hearts and glitter, you should definitely shop at Claire's.

Valentine's Day Items for Girls...

Maybe you are not interested in Valentine's Day at all. Maybe wearing anything at all that celebrates the holiday is not a high priority in your own life. However, perhaps you have a girl in your life that would love that type of thing. Most "girly girls" aged from about 4 on up to high school like Claire's. Even if you don't want to wear glittery heart earrings, chances are, your 12 year old niece would enjoy them. Furthermore, there is even Valentine's Day Justin Bieber jewelry in Claire's!!! I know, I know. So for any of you with Justin Bieber fans in your family (and you know who you are!), now is the time to shop at Claire's for the perfect Valentine's Day gift for her.

Even for a picky teenager, you usually can't go wrong getting a pretty Valentine's Day necklace at Claire's, along with a Claire's gift card. If you know a teenage girl in your family enjoys Claire's, she will really enjoy that type of Valentine's Day gift. In all honesty, Valentine's Day is probably one of the most important holidays in the "girly girl's" world. It is best to play it safe and go to Claire's.

Don't Be Afraid!

I hope I've convinced you that shopping at Claire's can be fun and inexpensive. Even if you are in your 30s (like me), I'll bet you can find something you like in Claire's. I wear earrings from Claire's all the time and people compliment me about them. I am constantly having adults tell me they never knew Claire's sold such great stuff. I also carry a purse I bought there that looks more like it was bought at a store like Macy's rather than Claire's. So go in and check it out! You might find yourself walking out with a lot more than just Valentine's Day items.

    Thanks so much! I am glad you liked the hub. I really like Claire's no matter how I get. I even enjoyed the Justin Bieber song that was playing last time I went into the store.
