Like it or not, Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. I feel pretty indifferent about Valentine’s Day. The most exciting part about it for me is that it’s my half birthday! Yes, you read that right: my half birthday. This means, there’s 6 months to get friends and family on board for whatever crazy birthday idea I have brewing. We do a pretty good job of showing love throughout the year so Valentine’s Day is an extra day to be obnoxious. I’m not that great at sourcing gifts but today I’m sharing 6 unique Valentine’s Day gift ideas for him or her.
These are all gifts under $70 and they’re not the typical flowers/chocolate type gifts. I will say though, however you feel about Valentine’s Day, there’s one thing I’ve always loved and that’s getting flowers at the office. Is there really someone out there who doesn’t like getting a beautiful bouquet of flowers? It doesn’t have to be V-Day either – just any old Monday would be great for receiving flowers too.
I’ll never forget in my first year of moving to Tennessee, I was working at an all-girls school and John surprised me with a beautiful spring bouquet at my office. All the girls were so giddy and excited. It was really the cutest.
Alright back to my
half birthday Valentine’s Day. I’ve always loved really unique cards when it comes to any holiday or birthday. Funny and creative cards are the best and I’ve seen some pretty good ones especially as it relates to Valentine’s Day.
Moving on – ready to shop a couple of random gifts?
