If you’re newly dating someone cute, but you’re not exactly sure what’s happening, go for something simple: a playlist of flirty songs, a brownie that says how you feel, or a surprise walk to a fun landmark in your town.
Happy Galentine’s Day! If you want to surprise your friend with a treat that shows that you “get” her, how about a book you know she’d love; cozy socks to wear on your walks together; or a sweet card listing all the reasons you love her.
If kids end up snoring in your bed every night (just ours?) and you want a shot of romance in your marriage, bust out this sex oil for full-body massages. Also, heart earrings would be a cute everyday pick-me-up; and Alex recently gave me this AWESOME indoor fire pit and it gives you that gather-around-the-fire-and-chat feeling.
For those in long-distance relationships whose hearts are growing fonder, you could send a bacon spread to kick start their morning, a beautiful bouquet from Urban Stems, or a weekend trip to look forward to.
What if you don’t care about Valentine’s Day but still want to be sweet? Treat him to the best hot fudge around, go to a bookstore and pick out books for each other, or make her laugh with a mug with the Goodfellas painting (IYKYK).
Thoughts? How do you usually approach Valentine’s Day?
