With Valentine’s Day just a few short weeks away, it’s time to begin thinking about possible gift ideas; not just for your significant other, but also cute little things for your kids and close family. After all, with so much love in the air, it can be a lot of fun to get the whole family in the spirit.
Below are five Valentine’s Day gift ideas that take little effort but have a huge impact. Whoever the recipient is, they are sure to know that they were thought about, which is always a nice feeling.
Flowers are perhaps the most popular Valentine’s Day gift. Whether it’s a dozen red roses or a beautiful arrangement of lilies, tulips, or daisies, flowers can be given to your wife, girlfriend, mother-in-law, or grandmother. Whoever they’re for, you simply cannot go wrong with the gift of flowers.
Another classic but always appreciated gift, cards are a great way to let someone know you’re thinking about them. You can get crafty and make your own card, or purchase one from your favorite shop. Current Catalog has a wide selection of Valentines cards for loved ones that you can write a personal, sappy message in that the recipient can read and re-read for years to come.
I have been on the hunt for simple yet delicious baked goods for Valentine’s Day, as I continue along my 52-week baking project. Throughout my search, I have found that food bloggers and bakers are extremely clever and innovative, and I have found recipes for cookies, cupcakes, and even homemade gourmet popcorn. Whatever you love to bake, decorate it with red and pink sprinkles or heart-shaped chocolates and arrange it in festive tins or even on disposable plates wrapped in cellophane to make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for family, friends, neighbors, and even teachers.
Spa night at home
Who doesn’t love to be pampered? Gather together some bubble bath, shampoo and conditioner, body wash, a rich body butter, and a bath poof and place some small candles around the bathroom and you have the makings of a perfect couples bath. Slice up some cucumbers for your eyes, bite-sized chocolates to snack on, and a bottle of wine to enjoy together, and you have easily transformed your bathroom into an at-home spa for two.
Breakfast in bed
Whip up some waffles or pancakes (or red velvet pancakes to really set the mood), a few eggs, and a mug of coffee or glass of orange juice and wake up your special someone to breakfast in bed. This is a great way to start out your Valentine’s Day, and is simple and cheap, but really shows your partner that you care and wanted to do something special for them.
