Kristin Cavallari is spending Valentine’s Day with people close to her heart.
“I have my kids on Valentine’s Day — they’re my Valentine,” the Uncommon James founder and CEO tells Page Six Style of her Feb. 14 plans.
Cavallari has sons Camden, 10, and Jaxon, 8, as well as daughter Saylor, 7, with ex-husband Jay Cutler.
And while her brand’s Valentine’s Day deals span skincare, homewares, and dazzling jewelry, you won’t see her exchanging gifts with anyone outside of the family this time around.
“I think Valentine’s Day is a very serious thing,” she says. “I think unless you’re in a relationship… if you don’t take someone that seriously, I’m not like, ‘Oh, let’s spend Valentine’s Day together.'”
Instead, for those who aren’t married this year, the star suggests getting Galentine’s Day gifts like David’s heart-shaped glass tea cups ($12 originally $20) or Cocotte de Le Creuset Enamelled Cast Iron Heart ($219), the latter of which she calls “a sweet, fluffy little treat” for making “chocolate soufflés” and more.
“Some of my favorite Valentine’s Days over the years have been with my girlfriends because there’s not so much pressure and then you can just have fun,” adds the “Laguna Beach” star, who says the holiday is “even more fun.” when you’re single.”
When it comes to choosing a more glamorous gift, however, Cavallari recommends her Uncommon James Triangle Diamond Vermeil Lariat Necklace ($128), which she says is “18k gold plated sterling silver and real diamonds, so with due due care [it] it will last a lifetime.”
And while the flowers might not last that long, the founder of Uncommon James says she has the celebrity-loved flowers of Venus et Fleur — which are designed to last at least a year — “all over the house.”

But while roses are red, Cavallari knows flags shouldn’t be; her top dating advice boils down to knowing that “red flags are there for a reason.”
“I don’t know if I should be giving out dating advice,” she laughs when asked about her top tips, later adding, “I think the only real dating tip I have is not to ignore red flags in the beginning… a lot of times we really just want to see the good in people or we want it to work so badly that we kind of ignore some things, and I think that’s the worst thing we can do.
Those vying for Cavallari’s heart these days might want to grab a pen and paper, as she says her “love language is words of affirmation” and her favorite gifts over the years have been “thoughtful cards.”
After all, she tells us that the best relationship advice she’s ever received comes down to finding your best friend.
“I think the older I get, the more people over the years tell me that you really should marry your best friend, and that really means a lot to me,” she says.
“I think that’s probably one of the most important things.”
