Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (less than a week away) and although it might be one of those overly commercialized holidays that everybody dreads/loves, there is also no one on the planet that wouldn’t enjoy a little something special from a loved on that day. Yes, Valentine’s is all about celebrating love, romance, and the person you are with. But so many of these ideas, gifts and DIY’s that we have sourced from the internet would be just as appreciated if given to a family member, friend, or someone else dear in your life. So – skip that bouquet of red roses and heart box of chocolates and instead here are a few of our favorites (done by other bloggers or crafters), all of which can be pulled together very last minute.
EATS & TREATS:
They say that the key to someone’s heart is through their stomach, and while we love a good date night out to the most romantic restaurant in town, there is something special, meaningful, and romantic about a homemade meal that you enjoy together. Whether that be breakfast in bed, a picnic for the park, a romantic rooftop dinner (on your own roof), or just a sweet treat for them to take to work in the morning here are some of our favorite ideas rounded up together.
SENTIMENTAL & SWEET:
There is no better way to pull at someone’s heartstrings than by giving them something that actually means something and feels heartfelt. All the bouquets of flowers, pink shaped pancakes, bubbly rosé, and monetary gifts won’t matter or feel as special as something that is sentimental and personal to the person that you are giving it to. So here are a few of our favorites that speak directly to the heart – and not by way of food, gifts, or cards. These are the ones that they will remember for many years to come and remind them why you care.
It’s not valentine’s without a little va-va-voooooom. And while we don’t need to go into deep detail of ALL the many romantic things you can do for “your person” (at this point hopefully you know them well enough to know what cranks there engine) here are a few simple but romantic ideas that might score you a few brownie points.
DIY & CRAFTS:
If you are feeling crafty then this roundup is for you. Not all are particularly quick or easy, but they are all special, festive, and fun for that special someone.
The “coupon book of dates/services” has gotten a major update with these printables. And we have included many more that we love for the holiday.
If you guys have any other good last minute sentimental and special gift ideas that we didn’t include be sure to leave them below.
