Valentine’s Day. The day where over 36 million boxes of chocolates are sold for Valentine’s Day alone. Coming in right behind Christmas, Valentines Day is the second largest card giving day of the year. So, what about Valentine’s Day gifts other than chocolate and cards? Well, men are likely to spend double what the women spend! Sorry, guys! When choosing a Valentine gift, spend your money wisely. Choose a Valentine gift idea that will speak directly to your love’s heart the most.
I know that Valentine’s is often thought of for a husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend situation but don’t forget the little loves in your life… your children! Showing love to your child can be simple but significant. Remember, we are training our children at a very early age to express their love for their future mate. That is a big responsibility as parents! Showing your child by example is the best way to teach. They will be watching how you love YOUR mate, others around you, and even how you love THEM! So, do it well, mama!
Valentines Day is when lovers everywhere spend a small fortune on stuffed animals, flowers, dinners and candies to give each other. All too often there seems to be a belief that the more you spend the more you love someone; this could not be farther from the truth. At times it’s not the amount of money that you spent on the gift but the amount of time and thought that you spent trying to find the perfect gift for the one that you love. When you are on a low budget you require some creative ideas that are still romantic.
