Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and that means it's time to start thinking about how you're going to show your loved ones just how much you care. If you're looking for some fresh ideas, don't worry – we've got you covered. From fun date ideas to simple ways to make your home feel cosy and romantic, we've got something for everyone. So why not take a look at our top tips and get planning? You'll be glad you did!
Buy Experiences Not Things
I have always been a big believer that you grow and learn so much more from shared experiences than adding more clutter to what I am sure is your already full house. Flowers and chocolate are nice (at least those only take up space temporarily), but why not do something fun - together. Most of us have been cooped up at home for two years - it doesn’t even have to be something new, but it will be a nice change of pace. Go to museum, see a play a your local theatre, drive to a nearby town (or train) and spend the day exploring. As they say at Nike “Just Do It”
Make Your House Feel Like a Home
We all have that pile of clothes to give away or the box that needs to be taken to the recycling or that coffee maker we have been meaning to take to the dump - for 6 months. What a nice surprise if all those things were gone. There is nothing like a deadline to get things done, but now you have so much more room for activities! When there is less clutter and mess, you can focus on each other and less on all the chores that need to be done around the house
Get a Grab & Go Balloon Garland
I know I said buy experiences, not things, but there is a loophole with this one as it is the gift that keeps on giving. A grab and go balloon garland is 6-8 feet long and can be easily hung in any entry way, hallway or space to create a fun photo opportunity or backdrop for your family and friends. Valentine’s Day is about celebrating love - all kinds of love. Why not capture that love with an easy to install backdrop. When kept inside these garlands can last two or more weeks. So, go crazy. Have more than one party. They start at $65 + tax and come with everything you need to hang or place where ever you need it and can easily fit in most vehicles.
This is a great last minute gift or addition if you forgot or are running out of ideas for Valentine’s Day or any other occasion. Our grab-and-go balloon garlands can be made within 48 hours of your request.
And more importantly have fun… Because what is love if it isn’t fun.
