Is it me or is Valentines day on steroids this year?
I happened to go shopping this weekend and everywhere I turned it seems the Valentines day factory had come to town. Not just chocolates and flowers and gifts but Valentines outfits and foods and everything.
I know lots of people hate it, and I must admit, Pete and I don’t really celebrate, settling for a card and usually a night in with some good food and wine, but I like Valentines day. I like the idea of spending time with the one you love and more than that I like the idea of little gestures and sweet surprises that make people smile, friend or stranger. (Last year I filled our living room with heart shaped balloons.)
So as is tradition I’ve rounded up a few V-day ideas that caught my eye. Most of them are food related admittedly and I might well make some valentines biscuits for work. Why not spread the love?
- Love hand/foot print
- Make a book out of your emails to each other
- Printable Valentine notes
- Heart Shaped hand pies
- Arrow cupcake toppers
- Free downloadable calligraphed valentine card
- Lemon curd filled sandwich hearts
- Pomegranate seed ice cubes
- White chocolate and raspberry cheesecake
Lots of heart shaped love,
