We don’t really make a big deal of Valentine’s Day and we never have done really. I think I remember maybe 1 Valentine’s Day where we did something special but that was the first one after John and I first got together. Now that we have Erin, and she’s at an age where she realises that some days are celebrated she asks what we’re doing and I feel terrible if I say nothing. So, with that in mind I wanted to come up with a list of things you can do as a family for Valentine’s Day. Homemade Valentine’s cards
AD – We received items to include in this post. All opinions are our own. Yesterday we posted about some budget Valentine’s Day gift ideas but today we’re bringing you some more ideas with a bit of a wider price range. Of course, Valentine’s Day only needs to cost what you want it to but there are plenty of ideas for various budgets in this post. Just before Christmas I fell in love with a foundation from Emani Vegan Cosmetics. It was a new brand to me but since then I have used the foundation every day and I’ll be purchasing
AD – We received items to include in this post. All opinions are our own. There was once a time when we were able to spend whatever we wanted on occasions such as birthdays or Valentine’s Day. Now that we’re a family with other things to prioritise we try to keep costs down and do things on a budget where possible. Also, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to cost a fortune if you don’t want it to. With that in mind, here are some lovely Valentine’s Day gift ideas that are all under £20! If, like us, you really can’t get out for a
Up until recently John and I have never been in a situation where we could go out together on our own without Erin. We don’t speak to the majority of John’s family and my family don’t live near us at all. Fortunately, my sister is living with us at the moment so we have had a bit more opportunity to have some time to ourselves. However, Valentine’s Day is not a thing for a husband and wife alone in our house but it’s a family affair. If you’re quite similar to us then there are plenty of ways that you
Now, if you’re spending Valentine’s Day with a loved one this year then a great way to do this is to curl up and watch a movie together. Traditionally these should be romantic films but they don’t really have to be if you don’t want them to be. I’m sure me and John have watched horror films in past years. Still, with romance in the air, here are 5 of my favourite films to watch this Valentine’s Day. Pretty Woman I think this was probably one of the first real films that I remember watching. It was certainly the first
Sometimes when it comes to big occasions people have their go to places. For me, this is Buy A Gift. Instead of maybe giving a present that you’re not sure about or that someone might not like, there are loads of options for experiences instead. For Valentine’s Day, there is the Fun Together Smartbox and I think it’s perfect! The Fun Together Smartbox is a bit different to some other experiences available on Buy A Gift because you’re not purchasing one particular experience. Instead, you buy a voucher where you can choose from over 2000 different experiences. I think this
John and I never really end up doing too much for Valentine’s Day. I remember one of our first together, back when I lived in Nottingham and he lived here in Norfolk. We spent the weekend in Norwich in an apartment and I was ill for most of it with the flu. Since then, we’ve never really made a big deal of it or done anything too extravagant. Now that we have Erin to think about, bills to pay and nursery fees to find, we really don’t have much money to spend on each other or to go out and
Sometimes I think men can be really difficult to buy gifts for, no matter what the occasion. With Valentine’s Day being so close to Christmas ideas may be few and far between so here’s a few to give you some inspiration! John has a massive sweet tooth and he gets so excited whenever we find a big sweet shop somewhere. As soon as I saw the Love Lolly May Sweet Hamper on Giftpup.com I knew he would love it. The hamper comes absolutely filled to the brim with retro and romantic sweets from Flumps to Love Hearts to Drumstick Lollies!
