Love Is In the Air
I actually took a step back this year and did not decorate like I usually do. The only hint of Valentine's Day in the house is our Valentine's Day Door Wreath (check out tutorial here) and some mirror clings. O loves the mirror clings. In fact they have become aN educational tool. We practice our colors with these cute little conversational hearts.
So back to the gift giving. I love to give gifts. It's so much fun finding just the right gift for that special person or making that extra special something. I don't know about you, but Pinterest has definitely brought out the gift giving in me. There are so many ideas. The options of why and what to make, buy and give are endless. Sometimes, I go cross eyed as I scan my feed and surf from board to board.
Here is a glimpse of our Valentine's Day gifts this year. It's not too late to make your special someone a special little something.
I had the most fun making the Mister's gift- 12 Months of Pre-Planned Date Nights.
Head over to The Thinking Closet for this awesome printable.
What you'll need:
Creative date night/day ideas
Need to satisfy your sweet tooth? I love Rice Krispie Treats, always have. I originally bought these with O's class in mind. Then they asked us not to send in anything for Valentine's Day, they would be making treats in the class room. So I decided to send them to the office for the Mister's co-workers. I cheated and bought ready made Rice Krispie treats. They were on sale and I can't pass up a great deal.
Heart Krispie Treats
What you'll need:
Rice Krispie treats (store bought or home made, we don't judge around here)
Melting Chocolate (or chocolate morsels)
PS. One of my favorite things is finding little love notes my husband hides around the house. He usually does this when he goes aways. I'll open a cabinet to grab a cup and there I'll find a sticky with a special message. It's the little things that keeps a relationship strong.
