Best Ideas and Gifts to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just days away, I know. Bless you, if you are prepared and way ahead of the game. For the rest of us, it might be tempting to just ignore the day altogether and assume our spouses, kids, grandkids, friends, family, and co-workers, will think we forgot and give us a pass, but I do not recommend that! The way I see it we still have time, and that means options:

    My Mother passed on Valentines so it is always a special day here. She lived all of the holidays…

    I celebrate Valentine’s Day inexpensively by giving a special treat daily for a week leading up to Feb 14. I’ll buy a few packs of Valentines themed snack cakes or candies and give my husband and children one per day as a “just because” gift. I always try to include each of their favorites at least once and since the packs are usually larger than the number in my family, they will often get the same treat a few days later. My kids get them in their lunchboxes, book sacks, or on their dresser. My husband’s is usually laid next to his watch and wallet to be discovered each morning. Honestly, after many years of doing this, they never expect it. It’s as much fun for me as them.
