I swear it feels like January 97th…why is it that this month always seems to last an eternity?! I, for one, am so happy that February is right around the corner, which means we are a little bit closer to spring! And with the new month comes one of my favorite holidays too!
We always celebrate Valentine’s Day the same way each year – we have a candle-lit family dinner at home (heart-shaped meatloaf, pink mashed potatoes & red velvet cake). Then we send the kids on a fun treasure hunt to find their presents – although, this year they said they are “too old” for it, which broke my heart!
My husband & I usually try to sneak out for a belated date night on the weekend – I don’t mind not doing it on the actual holiday because the restaurants are typically less crowded & it’s easier to get a reservation. As we’ve gotten older, we’ve definitely cut back our budget for gifts because we’ve found that we’d rather spend our money on experiences vs. things. But, for those who’ve requested it, I’ve compiled some great gift ideas below – everything is affordably priced and I tried to focus on items that are both practical & beautiful, so you know they’ll be well-loved.
I personally always enjoy receiving any sort of sleepwear/loungewear, like these classic pajamas or these faux fur slippers. I’m also a big fan of giving beauty or skincare sets, which is a great way to try out new brands & they’re also perfect for travel (my favorites: here, here & here). Other gift ideas: pretty everyday jewelry like this layered pendant, these dainty stacking rings or these huggie hoop earrings. I’d love to hear what’s on your wish list for Valentine’s Day!
