I’ll say this a zillion times from now until February 14th, but I just love Valentine’s Day. I always have. Growing up, my mom and dad would get my sister and I little gifts and have them wrapped up on the breakfast table as a surprise on V-day morning. And we’d always get something extra sugary sweet which NEVER happened in our kale and quinoa lunch boxes (my mom has always been way ahead of the health curve… clearly!). And in college, I’d celebrate with my girlfriends exchanging little trinkets and Starbucks gift cards. Like I said, it’s always been a thing!
One of the reasons I love Valentine’s Day so much is because the gifts are small, thoughtful, and lovely. We try to keep the spending to a minimum on V-day and put the real effort into our cards and heart shaped pancakes! So I thought it would be fun to do an under $50 gift guide and have Ryan share some ideas for the boys as well!
Hopefully, we’ll spark some inspiration for your gifts this Valentine’s Season!
