I simply refuse to buy Valentine’s day merchandise. I don’t like giving nor receiving red teddy bears, chocolates, cards, roses and “I love you” good-for-nothings for Valentine’s day. I think they’re a complete waste of money and take up space in my already “cozy” home until I eventually decide to throw the stuff away. The day of romance and love should be a reason to give your significant other something thoughtful yet simple. Here are a couple of different ideas that are un-valentine’s-like yet still romantic.
The best way to show love and appreciation is by spoiling someone with something that’s homemade. I made these flavoured sugar body scrubs to give away as holiday favours to friends and aunts. They’re ideal as budget-friendly Christmas gifts, party favours or bridesmaid gifts. Give them a try – you’ll feel so proud – and remember to keep one for yourself!
