I remember my first boyfriend and my first valentines day like it was yesterday, me dressed in red & him with red roses, beautiful card and heart shaped chocolates. We didn’t go on a date per say it was kind of gift exchange type of date as I was only 12 or 13, I had written him a card and decorated my heart out ..aaah the good ol’ days of hand written letters.. nostalgia moment right there.
Things have moved on since then, nowadays we are at an advantage with so many options to choose from. We can go naughty or simple good old fashioned dinner date or what I like to call the ‘up and coming eat at home kinda date‘. Call me old fashioned but I do love the idea of a loved one cooking for me instead of spending money (though I am not averse to it). It’s more personal and more romantic I think if your partner or yourself cook a meal (even together), set the table and enjoy yourselves. Valentines like other celebrated holidays we give gifts of sorts and today I wanted to share with you some gift ideas for your partner and also one or two for yourself (yes I give myself gifts too).
Flowers – Flowers are a must for Valentines, your lady friend, mamma or auntie will appreciate these big time.
A Spa Experience Gift Basket – I love spa baskets, you can never go wrong with these especially with busy mamma’s who would love to just have a few minutes to themselves and indulge.
Chocolates (Artisan Truffle Box) ~ I love chocolates big time for me it doesnt even have to be Valentines but for some reason they always taste better on Valentines just like my mamma’s christmas chicken tastes better than chickens she cooks throughout the year.
