Since being married and having kids Valentine’s Day has never been much of a holiday in our books. It has always been a day we’ve just sort of forgot about except until Feb 13 when we have to write out 842 Valentine’s day cards for school the next day. Not exactly romantic.
While I am more along the lines of less is more and love should be celebrated everyday and not always with gifts, my love language is gifts and I love to receive them and give them. That is often the way I communicate my love to others. I gift my children with books and candies, and as they get older, sometimes clothing and iTunes cards. Things don’t mean much. They’re not important, but for me it means I took the time to pick out something for you, which means you are special to me.
So in that thought, here’s my Valentine’s gift guide ideas.
1. Gifts for her from her. Ways to spruce up your evening or products to help your self-care routines, and add a little extra self-love and beauty into your relationship (even if you’re single!)
And 2. Gifts for the kiddos.
How cute are those bracelets and necklaces? They’re from Etsy, which I super love. Get them customized with your important birth stones, or with the names of those you love. SO cute.
The lipstick and eyeshadow are divine. They are made with super clean ingredients: castor seed oil, sweet almond oil, candelilla wax, beeswax, vitamin 3, & tinted with mineral oxides. The lipstick is a nude-y pink colour and looks and feels so pretty. Love it!
