Valentine’s Day is about celebrating YOUR love, not somebody’s idea of what love is or how to show it. How can you express your love to your partner? How can you celebrate yourspecial bond? Here are some ideas if you’re stuck on plans for Love Day.
It’s no secret that Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday. And yes–I think I like it even more than Christmas presents! In the spirit of my favorite holiday I opened a new line on Natural Essentials with 2 special products.
Aphrodisiac Blend ($6, 1 mL)
Definition: “an aphrodisiac food, drug, potion, or other agent that arouses sexual desire.” So I guess this falls under [love] potion? Spooky.
Diffuse this at sexy time so you and your partner associate the aphrodisiac scents with getting it on. It’s simple science and psychology.
Fun Fact: Cleopatra used essential oils as aphrodisiacs
Rose Essential Oil ($18, 1 mL)
This oil is so friggin’ expensive! *rolls eyes* What better way to celebrate V-Day than smelling like roses? Rose essential oil is also good for correcting blemishes and mood lifting, so it’s not just for Love Day.
Keep a look out for discounts on my blog posts if $18 is just too steep for you.
Uh-oh, it’s that time of the year again, and you feel like you’ve done everything before. Well guess what. You haven’t.
Basic clothing items from Forever 21 Men. XXI’s men’s linehas cheap, fashionable basics for your man’s closet.
Classic V-Neck Tees are $3.90, Classic Cotton Tanks are $3.90, etc.
Printed photos of you framed. If you join Snapfish.com you will get 100 free prints, and then you can go to the dollar store and purchase picture frames! You’ll end up spending probably $5.
Tech gear. Phone case, cute earbuds, new charger. Think about what you would want somebody to get you. For me it’s a long charger that actually works. I suggest all of the above and put it in a set.
Gift cards. Where does he always eat? I suggest $5-$10 on a couple of fast food joints.
Something new for his lifelong hobby. I would get my boyfriend a new basketball or a cool puzzle. This one is left up to interpretation because, while I’m great, I don’t know each and every one of your boyfriends. What does he like to do, and do often?
Religious things. My boyfriend is Christian
, so I would get him a pretty cross to hang in his room!
A clothing item he’s always wanted. My boyfriend loves Vineyard Vines, but he only has a few things from it. I would get him a couple of their iconic t-shirts!
A new video game he wants. The latest 2k or Call of Duty should do fine.
We all have friends that get bummed out on Valentine’s Day because they don’t have a significant other. Well, this year you can make their day by giving them this yummy and super easy Valentine! I’ll show you how I made 3.
A piece of construction paper
Yes. French fries. Who doesn’t ~love~ French fries?
To make the Valentines follow these easy steps:
Cut the construction paper into however many strips you’ll need (1 per friend)
Write “fries before guys” in a cute font
Purchase said fries (their favorites)
Tape your construction paper note onto the holder of the fries (the little cardboard thing they come in)
Give to your single friends for a laugh and yummy food indulgence!
Here’s what my construction paper notes look like:
