Hi loves! Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and I’m usually not a ‘last minute’ type of gal but I’ve spent the last five days in bed…I’ve been so sick! Flu B + bronchitis ? But I’ll spare you the painful details and chat about cuter stuff like V-Day ? Some love the holiday, others can’t stand it – whatever your opinion, I like to think of it as a nationally recognized day to spread more love and kindness to everyone. With all the roses, chocolates and valentine’s, it’s easy to get caught up in the silly stuff. Whether the day gives you the excuse to love on your hubby a little extra, plan a fun day date with your best girls, buy your mom flowers, take the little people in your life (nieces, nephews, children) to overload on cupcakes, pay for the persons coffee behind you at Starbucks or treat yourself to a massage then let’s take it and celebrate it. It’s usually the little things that make us feel the most loved anyways, right?!
Although I am little late to the party I’m sharing some gift ideas (it’s never too late for gifts!) + a couple simple date night ideas below!
MY V-DAY WISHLIST + GIFTS FOR HER
I’ve been wanting this silk pillow case for months now. It’s anti-aging, anti-sleep crease and anti-bed head! Sounds like a dream.
This ring is definitely a splurge but such a gorgeous piece to add to your every jewelry collection.
This sweatshirt basically has my name on it. Wine lover!
GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM
Heard such good things about the Art of Shaving kits. Something most guys wouldn’t pick up for themselves!
SIMPLY DATE NIGHT IDEAS
I am all for the simple date nights or the dates that weren’t really planned in the first place. You don’t need to buy 400 roses and a million candles to show your love! Simply being together (with the phones off) is so important! Here are a few easy ideas…
– Cook dinner together! Something you’ve never made before (don’t worry about calories today, friends!)
– Hit your favorite happy hour then get a couples massage
– Do something for others together. Make a meal for someone, volunteer at church or donate your time at a shelter or hospital
– Go for a hike or a quick overnight trip to your favorite nearby destination
I hope you babes have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! Remember to cherish all the beautiful moments in life today and everyday ? Thank you so much for stopping by! Xoxox.
