Valentine’s Day is a little over a week away, are you ready? My girls have been ready since we took down the Christmas tree, adding hearts around the apartment, hanging Valentine signs, and making Valentine’s for their friends. I however, always wait to the last minute to get the girls and their teachers a little something. Every year our Valentine favorites include flowers, something sweet, a good read, and/or a little piece of jewelry. This year, I’ve come across these sweet ideas for friends, family and/or your little Valenitne(s).
Teleflora’s Sweet Embrace Bouquet: Flowers are one of our favorite gifts for any occasion. They brighten a room and put a smile on a face. The Sweet Embrace is a 3-in-1 gift that includes a pink and red bouquet of roses, carnations and chrysanthemums in hand-blown red glass vase wrapped with an adjustable bracelet made of golden wire and shimmering red hearts. Once the flowers come to an end you can reuse the vase for many more occasions. The bracelet can be used as a great accessory. The perfect gift for friends, family or a teacher.
From the Heart, Homemade Raspberry Jam: Ever since the girls made homemade jam for jam cookies, it’s the only jam they want to eat. We use the Driscoll’s recipe and it is delicious. They decided they want to make more and give it as a gift to their teachers, friends and family. Add a special touch to the jar(s) by letting them write a special saying and decorating their jar. To make a cute saying on the top of your jar, trace the inside of the lid to create a template you can glue or tape on when you jam is complete. Make your own gift tags with this printable. Use red paint to create thumb print hearts. Tie your tag to the jar. An Awesome Book Of Love by Dallas Clayton: We stumbled across this book at Barnes & Noble and loved it. It’s an adorable book about the many faces of love. Recommended for kids ages 4-8. A great read to snuggle up on the couch to or a great gift for a teacher, to add to their classroom library.
Vintage Stamp Jewels Rose Gold Heart Bracelet on Etsy: I love this delicate bracelet. I came across it on Etsy when I was trying to find Valentine’s ideas. You can choose any chain length. My girls have a hard time separating. This would make a wonderful gift so they could have a reminder of how much I love them and that I will always be there.
