AD | Post contains gifted items This year, Valentine’s Day will look a lot different than what we’re used to. Sadly, we won’t be able to go for weekends away, there will be no meals out and not even a trip into the city for a day with your partner. So, with that in mind I wanted to share some other ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts this year. Although we’re not able to go anywhere right now, it doesn’t mean that you can’t surprise someone with a treat to look forward to. A buyagift experience
AD | Gifted items and post includes affiliate links Valentine’s Day doesn’t need to be all about grand gestures and expensive gifts. Sometimes, smaller more thoughtful gifts can be the way to go. I think as you get older the way that you celebrate certain special days is different, especially when you have a family. You start to think about what everyone would like. Children tend to try to steal whatever present you’ve got (I don’t even get to open mine any more) so sometimes they need to be really family friendly. One of my absolute
AD | Gifted item With Valentine’s Day just around the corner it got me thinking back to our wedding. This year we’ll be celebrating our 7th anniversary and it honestly feels like it wasn’t that long ago. I used to have photos printed out all the time but now that we have Erin and a living room overtaken by toys, photo albums just take up a lot of room. But, I want to remember the special memories and I want Erin to be able to see the pictures too. So, when I was asked to
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
AD – Gifted items If you’re looking for some ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts, here are some to think about. Gifts don’t have to work on an individual basis for Valentine’s Day. As this is a celebration about love I thought these matching name cushions from GiftPup were a really nice idea. I love that we now have our own cushions and they can’t get mixed up. These are super comfortable as well! Not too long ago we were sent this beautiful personalised star map from GreaterSkies (full review coming tomorrow). These star maps can show the
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
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
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.
