Valentine's Day is a special day for those who are in grade school and those who have someone to share it with.

I've never been a huge fan of Valentine's day because I either didn't have anyone to celebrate it with or because I didn't have very much money to spend on it.

When my husband and I first got together, (13 years ago) we had decided to keep Valentine's Day small. We were both college students with limited income. So we always did small things. One year I made him a hat with a kid's size felt cowboy hat, some sparkly glue sticks, and then baked him some really bad, burnt cookies. Another year, we wrote each other letters with candy and pictures.

Now that we're older, we say that we'll be ok with just a date night, but that's hasn't been very realistic with having three kids and no time. We'll tell each other that we'll just skip this year, and yet, somehow, we both don't follow through and end up getting each other something anyways.

I've sent my husband cookies and he's sent me flowers. It's always fun when you receive something in the mail and with Amazon Prime, your Valentine's Day can be so much easier! You'll get free shipping on qualifying orders and most orders will arrive within 2 days- even on Sundays!




So, husband! If you read this, these are ideas that I wouldn't mind having... I mean, we're not planning anything, this year, again.

Gift Ideas

When date night is hard to come by, Netflix and Chill or Amazon and chill can be a nice relaxing time, especially when you either take home some dinner or have it delivered.

Grubhub is a great app to order from restaurants around you and try something new. (click the link to use my referral code to sign up.)


Or really, any of these gift cards can help, as well. 




If eating out, isn't your thing and you want a more personal touch, here are other ideas!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries-
or if you'd rather not spend so much, you can try to make your own arrangements-





Instead of the traditional flower bouquet, maybe try something like this Bouquet of Chocolate Roses!



Or maybe this Bouquet of Hersey's Chocolate is more to your liking.




Or maybe Cookies will do for you- (These are the kind I sent to my husband last year and they were awesome)



How about this Care Package?




And for those who don't like sweets, there are always Beef Jerky Bouquets that you can send.


Don't forget your kids! They might feel left out if they didn't get something from you. For your daughter- Minnie Mouse Candy Tin



Or your son or any superhero lover in your family- Captain America Candy Tin

And if you really want to go above and beyond for your dog, you can always get them this Heart Shaped Rope to play with.

 

Your cat will probably love these Catnip Shaped Hearts.




Conclusion

There's something for everyone on Amazon if you know how to look for it or have an idea of what you'd like.

Living in a part of the country where the weather is unpredictable, it's nice to have the option to be able to order online- especially those very cold days when I don't want to head out to shop after my husband gets home and it already looks like it's midnight even though it's only 5:30 PM.

Keeping this kid friendly, what things have you ordered online? Have you ever ordered something for a friend or family member?

    1. I love gift cards, especially those for restaurants. It gives us an excuse to get out and do something together without feeling like we're spending money on something we don't need to do.
