You may disagree, but personally I think Valentine’s Day has become too commercialized. I like to recognize it, but going all-out is not on my list of priorities for this single day.
Inevitably, the question “What do I buy so-and-so?” arises. Candy tends to be the automatic answer. Really, though, how much candy or chocolate does someone need? How much do you actually want to pay for your dentist’s next vacation?
What are some different gifts for Valentine’s Day? If you’re struggling, here are a few ideas. They’re basically in order from least to most personal and a variety of prices:
Pens, pencils, and erasers
Popcorn or favorite snack with a sweet note put around it
Stationery or personalized notecards
Mug & favorite coffee, tea, or hot cocoa mix
Make your own card
Gift Certificate for a massage
Something related to the recipient’s favorite hobby
Coupon book (you create and choose the topics)
Nice dinner out
Tickets to a movie, play, or concert
Pajamas or other clothing
Happy (early) Hearts Day! What gift would you add to this list?
