Valentines Day is, arguably, a holiday designed by greeting card manufacturers to make some extra bucks in card sales. However, what’s to hate about a day to remind those around you that you love them and value their presence? This year skip the high-cost and high-energy gifts, and take some time this weekend to make a few things.
- Valentines Day Cards are easy to craft and can be quite fancy with multi-material collages using scraps from around the house.
- Chocolate truffles or homemade cookies are always an easy and thoughtful way to say “Sweets to the Sweet!”
- If you want to go the extra mile, make up some gift certificates or coupons for things your sweetheart could always use – backrubs, free pass on bathroom cleaning responsibilities, or a nice homemade dinner.
It’s easy to get in the habit of feeling like we have to spend money to prove we care. This year, though, create a new paradigm. Make something special and assure your loved one that you thought of them through the entire process.
If you can, share your V-Day plans!
