Valentines Gifting Guide

If you are a husband or wife that buys into all that this holiday of love has to offer, I'd like to offer you some great gifting ideas.  My husband and I have been married 10 years, Valentines Day went from a beautiful date (and the night we got engaged) to a night home with the kids and small gift giving.  Whether you are newly together or married for 40 years, you should show your significant other that you love them every day, not just 1 day a year.

My favorite Valentines tradition was always when my dad would pick up those stuffed animal filled balloons from the mall.  Every year he would grab one for my sister and I on his way home.  As we got older it would be chocolate and a rose or something equally as simple but it meant the world to me - he was the first man in my life and showed me what to expect from my future husband.

Here are my top 3 places for Valentines Day gifts with love, thought and memories.  What is your Valentine tradition?


  1. I love Red Envelope for some fun, non traditional, Valentines gifts.  They are now part of Personal Creations, just a heads up.  In the past I have purchased romantic collar stays, copper wallet cards and a few other items for my husband.
  2. is another great place to find the perfect gift because they have a direct link to their Valentines Day gifts for both.  I am all about the ease of locating the information.
  3. ETSY!  To obtain a personalized, custom gift for your love is worth so much more than anything.  Some of my favorite gifts from my husband are simple with a ton of meaning.
  4. For those that want to celebrate being single, here is a great site for you too!
