Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and if you’re like me you’re scrambling to find some little gifts to show the ones you love just how much they mean to you.
You could always go the chocolates, roses or lingerie route, but this year, why not think outisde the box (of chocolates).
Sure, we all love chocolate, but aren’t most of us still trying to lose those few post- holiday pounds or stick to our “less sweets” new year’s resolutions? Why not give your chocolate in a non-edible form? Chocoholics rejoice, for The Body Shop has introduced a line of Chocomania products.
I’m a longtime fan of The Body Shop’s body butters. Especially during the dry winter months, this rich moisturizer is like giving my skin a little tropical vacation. This newest scent smells absolutely heavenly, it provides 48 hours of hydration, it’s made with 13 Community Fair Trade ingredients…and it’s only $18.
The line also includes shower cream, body lotion and a sinfully delicious lip butter.
Just promise me you won’t lick the tub when it’s empty!
Don’t be the sucker who pays ten times the amount to have flowers delivered on February 14th. Flowers are beautiful, but they’re just as beautiful on February 13 and 15, so bring your cut flowers on any other day.
If you really want deliver the power of flowers, why not do it with pictures?
I recently made a collage of some of my mom’s favourite flowers from the cottage.
If I were to print those on a Kodak Picture
Kiosk (they’re at almost every Walmart store, and take only minutes), that little taste of summer could get her through these last few months of winter.
The Kodak kiosks are easy, and you can upload your photos from a memory card, a stick or even from your Facebook page! You can make prints, collages, photo books and other novelty items…and they won’t wilt after February 14th!
Maybe it’s time to think in the box with lingerie. I’ve long been a fan of Hanky Pankys, and Valentine’s Day may be the perfect time to share these amazing thongs with the world (not yours…get them their own!)
How about a little box of Hanky Pankys? This limited edition holiday set is available in lingerie stores now for $54.
Whether you think inside the box or outside, consider your true love and his or her passions. What means the world to them? What would thrill them like nothing else? I’m kind of hoping my Valentine’s Day looks something like this…
Happy Vantine’s Day Lovers!!!
