Valentine’s Day

The first big retail holiday of the year is almost here, Valentine’s Day. If you are in a relationship you are more than likely going to be celebrating V-Day in one way or another. Although you may feel pressured to spend extravagantly on a gift or night out, that’s not the only way to show the one you love you care.

However, believe me, when I say cheap is not in my vocabulary, that is not what I’m saying to do. It’s just that gifts with more thought and meaning behind them tend to make more of a long-term impact on your significant other, I know they do on me!

I’ve celebrated 18 wonderful Valentine’s Day’s with my husband. One of the most heartwarming was the first one we spent together. We were not yet married, and just starting to build a new company together, so we did not have alot of extra to cash to spare. He hand-delivered 3 roses to my office with a handwritten card with words that melted my heart! I was so touched he took the time and thought to do that during a very busy time of our lives!

He has bought me many roses since then, but those first three were the most special for sure!

Below are some romantic ideas that will keep your budget in line and hearts warm


Plan a daytime activity. Go for a hike or walk together, shopping and lunch with wine. If you have an ice skating rink close get your cute outfit and fuzzy mittens on and go! Think about what he likes to do in his free time and if that seems like a good activity to share in, plan everything to make it extra special. You could have something customized, like hot coco mugs or yeti cups. Whatever you do the most important thing is to unplug and be present with him. Give this special time you have together your full attention.


You can plan a special dinner at home, including all of his favorites, light the candles, uncork the wine and dress the table with flowers. I love to buy bulk flowers at Costco and spread them all around the house in vases. Maybe you don’t want to cook a full dinner, just bake special cookies and bring them to him during the day with a special note! Include a homemade gift certificate for something….he can use later 😉

The main thing is to get creative and think outside the box. Plan and do something special that you both will have the memory of for years to come!

Embrace the less is more this Valentine’s Day and leave your credit card in your wallet!

    I loved reading this post! I agree Valentines day has slowly become more and more superficial. While I think everyday should be filled with love, it doesn’t need to be in the form of spending money of material things. The best valentines days are just spent with your loved one doing anything right down to spending the evening at home relaxing. Great post!

  • I love this post too! I know you well and know you like a great piece of jewelry, but also know you well enough to know Sweet sentiments go a long way with you too. You just encouraged me to at least put some thought into Valentines Day, which I normally don’t do until the day before or it’s all about decorating a valentines box for school.

    • I’m so happy you like the post!! Your right about the jewerly;) but yes, when someone takes the time and puts thought into it, it’s means so much more!

  • Loving your style! You are so chic. Would you like to follow for follow on Bloglovin? 🙂
