Valentine's Day is coming up and while searching for gift ideas for my husband on Pinterest, I came across some pins for a cute thing to do called, '14 Days to Valentine's,' or '14 Days of Love.' Basically, you'd give a small gift and a sweet (or cheesy) note to go with the gift, on all 14 days leading up to Valentine's Day. This can also be done for your children and it sounds like fun, so I decided to do this for my husband starting on February 1st.
My plan is to give a small treat (like his favorite chocolate bar or can of beer) from days 1 - 7, then on days 8 - 14, I'll give some bigger gifts like a shirt, etc. If you're on a tight budget, you can check dollar stores (or the equivalent in your country) and the candy/snack section of your local supermarket for inexpensive gift ideas.
Now this all sounds very sweet and romantic, but as I've discovered it does take a bit of planning to come up with 14 different gifts, figure out how to present the gifts, as well as think of a sweet message to go with each gift. I'm really enjoying the process so far though, and can't wait to start with the gift giving!
If you'd also like to try doing this for that special someone this Valentine's Day, I created a simple planner to help with the process.
