Valentine’s Day For Him, Her And You
The History of Valentine’s day
There are many stories behind the history of Valentine’s Day, however our favourite is the story of Jack Valentine. It’s said in Victorian times, Jack Valentine left gifts on the doors of the people in his village on Valentine’s Eve, then disappeared into thin air.
We just love Valentine’s Day. It’s the perfect time to re-connect with love. Whether that’s with a partner, a friend, a family member or yourself. Don’t be pressured into over spending for Valentine’s Day as there are plenty of affordable gifts and fun and romantic ideas you can do in the comfort of your own home.
Here are our ideas for a Valentine’s Day to remember for him, her and you.
#1 Movie night
Switch off your digital devices and get stuck into a good film, include some popcorn (of course) and a soft blanket and settle in for the night with a loved one, your friend or why not enjoy the night in to yourself.
#2 Fill up a hamper crate
These wooden vintage storage crates, with heart shaped handles make the perfect base for a thoughtful hamper gift. Fill them with your favourite treats and then use as an attractive storage box afterwards. Don’t forget to add the Prosecco if it’s a gift (it would be rude not too)
#3 Write Cards & letters
Cards are so underrated now with the noise of digital devices. We love cards and they can be so much more special if they are dated, personalised and thought out with lovely words. Or why not write a hand-written letter? Filled with memories, laughter and love that they will be able to keep as a keepsake. These can be sent to a partner, friends or family members to show appreciation for how much they mean to you.
#4 Make a photo album/scrap book
Take some time to organise a photo album or a scrap book. We have already talked about what huge fans of recorded memories we are and this also includes printed photos. Taking the time out to choose some of your favourite memories and place them into a printed book makes such a wonderful and thoughtful gift.
Plus this therapeutic activity is a wonderful exercise to do as a couple or on your own for Valentine’s day.
How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day this year? We’d love to hear what you’ll be up to.
