Valentines Day Ideas

Valentines Day gifts are always in the eye of the beholder. If you are looking for the perfect gift to get that perfect someone think outside the pretty package and give a gift from the heart. A handmade gift or thoughtful gesture can mean far more than the gift you get from the mall.

~Give the gift of time. Time spent together on Valentines Day is far more meaningful than any bouquet of roses. Make time for the person you love on Valentines Day. Do something special or out of the ordinary to make the day memorable. Time is much more of a gift, especially if the two of you have little of it together.

~Arrange for a babysitter. If your spouse or loved one is always the one who makes the babysitting arrangements they are sure to appreciate if you do it this time. Get her a nice card and inside of the card write a little note that tells her you took care of the babysitter. Let her know this is a rein check for a child free evening.

~Make dinner at home. Instead of going out in the cold and braving the Valentines Day crowds why not make dinner at home together. Quiet nights at home are underrated.

~Get a plant instead of flowers. Flowers are beautiful but they don’t last very long. Plants on the other hand can have years of shelf life. Instead of the traditional flowers why not buy a houseplant that can serve as a nice addition to the home. A plant that can be grown inside then replanted outside is a great gift for the Gardner or your special outdoors enthusiast.

Remembering the true meaning of Valentines Day can inspire you to think beyond the prepackaged expensive gifts and find one that is meaningful to the person giving it as well as the one receiving it.
