Yes, I am plugging my Etsy shop… and I have absolutely no shame about it.

I made this for Nick as a Christmas present, and he LOVED it!!  So if you want a thoughtful present for your valentine, this is a perfect option. 

Plus, it’s only $10 and made by yours truly. (;



You can’t go wrong with a simple bouquet of flowers!  I literally melt when people buy me flowers, so take it from me.

Plus, if you’re long distance, you can get a flower arrangement delivered to your significant other!!  How sweet would that be?!

This is one of the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas that won’t break the bank… it’s no wonder flowers on Love Day is such a classic move.

I made one of these for Nick years ago, and he said it’s one of the most memorable gifts I’ve ever given him.

Highly recommend if you like being crafty and giving gifts that show a lot of thought and effort was put into them. (:

matching pajamas

You can’t go wrong with matching jammies!!

I once bought Nick and I matching pajama pants for Christmas, and we still love them to this day.  But Valentine’s Day pajamas are on a whole other level!

favorite treats

Treat your valentine with their favorite snacks, candies, and more!

Grab a cute Valentine’s bag or bucket at Walmart or Target and fill that baby up!  

*Bonus: add a festive blanket, slippers, or something else they will love but isn’t for eating.

This can be a gift or date idea… but it’s great either way!

Take your valentine on a fun excursion they will LOVE!  Or plan an at-home date night that they won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

Don’t necessarily plan a date that YOU would enjoy; make sure you are thinking about what they would have fun doing, too.  That will make it all the more meaningful. (:

playlist for your person

One year for Christmas, Nick made a CD of some of his favorite songs that reminded him of me, and it was the best.

I loved playing it in my car, and sometimes we would listen to it together, and it gave us a feeling that’s hard to describe.

Now, whenever I hear a song that was on that CD, I think of that sweet gift Nick gave to me, and I’m so thankful for those memories. (‘:

Here are some lovey dovey songs to get you inspired!

love letter <3

Nick and I love writing love letters. (‘: It’s almost always my favorite part of gift-giving!

So, whether you write your valentine a love letter every day or you’ve never even picked up a pen, I challenge you to write one this year!

Talk about your favorite memories with them, the qualities you love about them, or anything else that’s super duper romantic. (;
