Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope your day is filled with lots of smiles and laughter. And if you’re lamenting that you still don’t have that ‘perfect’ gift for your someone special, hopefully these ideas will inspire you. And they are all homemadeable (like my new word???) so its not a problem if you’re running out of time!

Write and frame a heart felt poem – this doesn’t have to rhyme or be catchy – and if you get stuck, you could always type up an old school romantic poem and frame.

Give them a box of Goldfish crackers with a note saying…”Of all this fish in the sea, I’m glad I caught you”

Make a bookmark for them with a romantic quote on one side and a sweet sentiment on the other. An office supply store can help you laminate it.

Have a special libation made for them when they walk in the door. This could be a pink concoction or something as simple as sweet tea. On our first Valentines I made my husband a gallon of homemade sweet tea, just because.

Make a special homemade Valentines card. Hopefully, my husband is not reading this…but this year I’m getting crafty with Cherokee and Danish languages since I’m got native american blood and he’s pure¬†Scandinavian.

Or get crafty and make them an old school Valentine showing how much you love them with your hand prints and an a piece of paper folded accordain style. (Our best ever babysitter handcrafted this the other day for us as a sweet surprise from our son!)

And remember, there is no ‘perfect’ gift. Its simply about finding little ways to show you care.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
