With Valentine's day around the corner it's a perfect time to celebrate your love to your significant other. According to Baptist minister Gary Chapman, there are 5 love languages; Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Receiving Gift, Quality Time, Physical Touch. Chapman wrote The 5 love languages: the secret to love last in 1992 but it is still a best seller today!
Understanding your partner's love language is the key in showing them love in a way that speaks to them. We drew inspiration from chapman's book to put together this list of things you can do for your partner this valentine's day.
Do you know which love language your partner is? If not, you both can take this quiz to help you find what love language you speak!
If your partner #1 love language is words of affirmation they values any spoken or written words that supports them, uplift, and motivates them. They want to hear how much you love them!
- Leave hidden love letters all over the house.
- Put positive sticky notes all over your bathroom mirror + let your partner find them!
- Create a playlist just for your partner with all the songs that remind you of significant other (pro tip: give the playlist a unique name)
If your significant other's love language is acts of service they feel your adoration by the things you do for them. They want you to support them in their everyday life + take responsibilities out of their hands.
- Let them have a weekend free of chores. (i.e. do laundry, dishes, paint the house, simply let them rest)
- Wake your significant other up with breakfast in bed + let them be lounge around all day long!
- Create a coupon book that they can claim at any time! You can include things such as doing the dishes, taking out the trash, cleaning the bathroom ect..
If your partner cherishes receiving gifts this does NOT mean you can go to the store + just pick anything up. They value you thinking of them and getting them a meaningful gift. Something that says "I've been thinking of you all day" + has a meaning behind it.
- A hat with a hat band of her favorite color.
- A picture frame with the first picture you ever took together.
- A personalize necklace
Receiving gift is one of the most miss understood love languages. It's not about how many shoes, bags or accessories you buy for your partner. It is about thinking about what will make your partner smile + make them feel like you really know them.
If your partner's love language is quality time they value being together. They want to have your undivided attention. Our girl Riri put it best, "Want you to make me feel, Like I'm the only girl in the world" To make your partner happy turn your phone off and focus on them!
- Have a game night with your partner! Choose some of your favorite games + have fun!
- Plan a road-trip with many surprise stops!
- Have a candle lit dinner at home prepare by you!
If your partner's number one love language is physical touch they feel admiration through kisses, hugs, and cuddles. They want to be caressed at all time!!
- Give them a massage with essential oils
- Cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie
- Go on a long walk and hold hands.

Finding your perfect hat starts with finding the perfect fit. Let's answer some common questions to help you find a Gigi Pip that will give you the best look and feel.
Hats are measured by the inside circumference at the bottom of the hat's crown (the sweatband) and most often measured in centimeters. While hats may be sized according to their measurement, it is fairly common for women's hats to be sized based on average women's head sizes and then adjusted down to fit.
For example - Since the average women's head size measures 57cm, a small to medium hat would be made to fit 57cm and then can be adjusted down to 55cm. Larger head sizes measure up to 59cm, so a medium to large size hat would be made to fit a 59cm head size and then can be adjusted down to 57cm. Children ages 7 and below are typically 53cm, and those ages 7+ tend to be 55cm. Because of this, Gigi Pip hats sizes are as followed:
Kids (53cm to 55cm)
S/M (57cm to 59cm)
M/L (59cm to 61cm)
Additional Sizing Chart (based on average women head sizes):
X Small - 55cm (21.65 Inches)
Small - 57cm (22.44 Inches)
Medium - 58cm (22.83 Inches)
Large - 59cm (23.22 Inches)
X Large - 61cm (24.01 Inches)
There are two primary methods of measuring your hat size and are based on the style in which you wear your hat. You will need to take both measurements (shown below) and then use the larger of the two measurements to determine your hat size. Once you've received your hat, you can decide on the style you'd like to size your hat to and adjust your hat accordingly.
TIP: If you don't have a textile measuring tape, use a string or piece of yarn to measure the distance around your head. After you have marked the yarn around your head, lay it out flat on the ground or table and measure the straightened out piece of yarn with a measuring stick or regular measuring tape.
Method 1: The Traditional Style
This is the traditional style of wearing a hat. The front tip of the hat is low on the forehead, just above your eye brows, causing the hat to sit nearly level with the ground. To measure your head using the traditional style method, measure the distance around your head from the center of the back of the head to the forehead just above the eyebrow as shown below.
1. Use a textile measuring tape (or string) to measure the distance around your head crossing through the center part of the back of your head and the forehead just above the eyebrow. The tape should be level with the ground.
2. Check the measurement of the tape wrapped around your head. Hat sizing is in cm. If you are in-between sizes, we suggest sizing up and adjusting your hat accordingly.
Method 2: The Halo Style
This is the halo style way of wearing a hat. The front of your hat is raised up and the hat sits on the back of your head. To measure your head size using the halo method, measure the distance around your head passing through the back of your head, just above your neck, and the front of you head up on your brow as shown below.
1. Use a textile measuring tape to measure the distance around your head passing through the back of your head, just above the neck, and the front of your head high on the brow. The tape should be higher in front than in back.
2. Check the measurement of the tape wrapped around your head. Wearing a hat Halo style is usually a smaller hat size than wearing a hat traditionally however we recommend using the larger of the two hat sizes. If you are in-between sizes, we suggest sizing up and adjusting down.
All Gigi Pip hats are made to adjust to the perfect fit. Before making any adjustments, check the inner band type and follow the directions below.
1. My hat has draw strings - If your inner band has draw strings located behind the tag on the rear side of the hat, simply pull them tight to adjust your hat size down a size or two. Pull gently to avoid a tare.
2. My hat DOES NOT have draw strings - Many types of inner bands do not allow for a draw strings such as leather, elastic or cotton with a foam lining. Hats without a draw string are adjusted by using Gigi Pip's Hat Sizing Tape (sold separately). Hat sizing tape has long been the preferred method of adjusting hats because it allows you to keep the inner band in its natural form and the foam molds comfortably to the head.
Directions to use Hat Sizing Tape: Place the foam tape on the inside of your hat, behind the sweatband, with the sticky side facing towards the hat wall. Wrap the tape completely around the hat for maximum size decrease or cut tape length in half for a more moderate decrease. Size to fit prior to removing the adhesive cover. Once the fit is correct, remove the adhesive cover, press firmly into place, and wa-lah.
