Last year I wrote about what Troy and I do for Valentines Day almost every year and this year will be the same if we aren’t traveling. I thought I’d add some other Valentines Day ideas this year. Of course, it’s also an excuse to wear shades of pink which I am ALWAYS down for. I’m loving this soft fleece jacket that my little sister got me for Christmas! It’s a perfect shade of soft blush, has pockets and is roomy enough to wear a sweater underneath.

DIY Gift For Him

Pick out a movie, make this Valentines Day chocolate drizzled popcorn, place in some cute popcorn containers. Put them on a tray with 2 glasses of wine and a sweet card. So easy and so perfect for spending the night IN.

This is our traditional Valentines Day dinner here, it’s also all DIY and all for staying IN on Valentines Day but still giving a nod to the day and to the one you love.

The heart shaped wooden spoon would be so cute with a small flour sack with pancake mix inside. The heart shaped tea bags are for that die hard tea lover in your life- you know who they are, lol. Crazy good deal on a beautiful Swarovski crystal pendant w/ February birthstone. It’s excellent quality and comes nicely packaged. Reg $40. And if you’ve never had Charbonnel et Walker Truffles from Britains oldest and finest chocolatier- they are to DIE for!
