Simple ideas to win over your Valentine

Let’s start with a disclaimer: I’m simply offering my own opinion-based advice. No guarantees in swooning your Valentine. 

However, you may be browsing the interweb in search of the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. You’ve got a couple days left so congrats for planning ahead this year! Here are merely some suggestions. (And maybe secretly I’m hoping my Valentine will read this.)

1. Chocolate. I stand by this motto: If she says she doesn’t want chocolate, she’s probably lying to you. IMG_0349Unless, of course, she has an allergy or medical condition and in that case, you actually should NOT buy chocolate. You don’t have to buy an entire box. A simple chocolate covered cookie may be enough. 

2. If #1 is the case, you can resort to a more healthy option: FRUIT. That can be in the form of a fruit basket. Or simply a grocery heart applebag full of fruit. You should, however, include a card and perhaps a gift tag with a catchy line such as “You make my life sweeter” or “Like this bag of fruit, I cannot live without you.” Catching my drift?

3. Candy. [see #1]

4. Flowers. Now, while I’m someone who buys them regularly for myself (it’s OK, me & my hubs have a mutual tulipsunderstanding about it!) because they just add happiness to the clutter on my dining room table, I do love it when he brings home a lovely bouquet. Even if I have to remind him. I don’t think it’s cliche. I just like flowers and pretty things.

6. An apple pie. Again, include gift tag with catchy line such as “You make my life sweeter than pie” IMG_0187or “You’re the apple of my eye” or “A treat for my sweet.” And if you’re lucky, maybe your Valentine will share a piece with you.

This is by no means an exhaustive list. For more ideas, feel free to wander the aisles of D.O. and get creative. Good luck!
