Valentine’s Day is rolling around and now we live in our home, without a noisy neighbour banging underneath us all the time, life is feeling really good. Because of this, I want to make Valentine’s Day a whole special day. We’re going to have an at-home date night, give each other a few small gifts and just make a special effort.
Some people say to me that you don’t need a special day to declare your love, which I agree with, but I do think my own marriage needs more date nights and effort, so it is the perfect excuse for us! This year I’ve decided that Valentine’s Day is going to be about more than just treating Thomas, my lovely husband, much like last year, and I will also be about treating myself! I work hard and I deserve to look and feel nice on the day.
The products featured in this guide were gifted by brands in exchange for this feature. Valentine’s Day isn’t something that we go mad on, to be honest. We no longer go out for lavish meals, and we rarely even cook a fancy meal to mark the day! However, as busy parents, working on buying a house and running our family, we like having a special day to make an effort. This year I’ve decided that Valentine’s Day is going to be about more than just treating Thomas, my lovely husband, and will also be about treating myself! I’m a hard worker and I deserve some nice treats too! Here is my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for 2019.
We were gifted a voucher in exchange for this coverage. My husband and I aren’t really known for our grand romantic gestures. I’ll treat my husband to a holiday. He’ll treat me to a piece of jewellery from time to time – although less so since I remarked that I had too much! Sometimes I’ll get flowers, sometimes I won’t – for most of the year. I am really happy with our marriage, the strength of it, and how well we work as a couple. I’d much rather be rock solid, and financially secure, than have any number of the expensive gifts that I secretly hanker after. A new car for example!
