It’s no secret that I love Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate all the special people who bring love and happiness into your life.
I’ve got 5 incredible gifts your Valentines will absolutely love. (Plus, I’ve got a little bonus material to share with you.)
1. Usually you can’t go wrong with classics like candy or flowers. I’m a sucker for chocolate and roses never fail to delight me. If you want to change it up a little bit surprise your valentine with a balloon bouquet instead. If roses and balloons aren’t your style consider a cookie or fruit bouquet instead.
2. Another idea is bubble bath, bath bomb, soaps, perfume, or cologne. This can be a little more expensive and a little harder to choose for someone else. I recommend sticking with something you already know your valentine likes. If it’s for a child the risk is a lot less. My kids are grown now, but they used to love to get some bubble bath or colored soap.
3. Write your valentine a love letter or give them a handmade card. Maybe you could share all the secret reasons why you adore them.
4. Pajamas or slippers are a fun gift that my valentines love to receive. You are sure to be in their dreams when they are nestled in bed all snug in the gift from you.
Bonus Material: On a personal note, this year I am ahead of the game with a gift for my husband. No last minute shopping for me! (This happens to be because I planned to give this to him for Christmas, but didn’t quite have my act together to get it done in time. That’s another thing I love about Valentine’s Day – Any left over Christmas gift ideas that I couldn’t afford or didn’t have time to get can be given in February.) My husband has a gold necklace that needed a new end cap so I took it to the jeweler and had it replaced. I know he’ll be happy to have it wearable again. It is kind of an interesting story how he got the necklace. He is a golf pro and used to give lessons. The wife of one of his clients gave her husband this beautiful gold chain as a gift on a special occasion. The client then turned around and traded the necklace to my husband for a golf club! Boy did that client have some explaining to do when his wife found out. That is my bonus material- A little free advice: If your valentine gives you a gift please don’t trade it for a golf club. It’s likely that wouldn’t go over well.
