Happy Friday and yay for another weekend. Looks like it is going to be a cold one everywhere. Better cover up those cyclamen!! I plant those every year knowing that I will have to drag out the covers if it gets below freezing. I like pansies and kale better because they seem to be able to withstand the cold weather. So we are really having winter this year and it’s a good time to warm up your hearts and think about some Valentine Gift Ideas for friends or little ones you want to spoil. I have always loved red and pink for Valentines Day and we sure need to spread some love around this year – don’t you think!? I haven’t thought of any ideas for men because I think most of them really hate Valentine’s Day and having to come up with a gift and fancy expensive dinner for their sweetie. Maybe I will work on men’s gift ideas later. Check out my blog last week for some ideas on what to wear for Valentines’s Day fun outings.
VALENTINE GIFT IDEAS
When I think of Valentine’s Day it brings back memories of scrambling to get little packs of Valentine’s Day cards for my kids’ class parties and gifts for them and their teachers. I remember a few handmade treasures and love notes from my children. Valentine’s Day is all about red and pink and hearts and love and I have some ideas for the little ones in your life. For me it is grand babies now and I kind of found more items for girls like Sloan. I had to let her have a starring role in this blog and love this little sweater I found at the Gap for her. And those pink Converse sneakers!! Too cute!! It’s a new kind of love for sure – these grand babies!!!
VALENTINE GIFTS FOR LITTLE LOVES
True confession – I am finally packing up my Christmas decorations today!!! No more excuses!! I realize not that I should not have taken off New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day to rest after the holidays. Little did I know that cute Jennings would decide to come a week early. Oh well, this will all be put away by Valentine’s Day for sure!! I”ll be in Memphis with the grand babies. I’ll bet Bill is so relieved that he gets off this year!! He can eat frozen Trader Joe’s pizza at home alone and be perfectly happy not having to take me out to dinner!! I hope you have a really special Valentine’s Day full of love and surprises and maybe some beautiful flowers!! XO Debby
