I’m beyond excited to share a fun Valentine’s date idea from the Dating Divas.  Because it involves my favorite guy.  Channing Tatum.  You thought I was going to say Josh didn’t you?  Ha! Had you fooled.
I’m not a new Channing fan.  My love goes back to his Step Up days.  I went with some of my good friends to see it on the big screen and the rest is history.  I still claim that movie as one of my favorites.  (go ahead and judge me)  Given the option to share an idea with you, it seemed like the clear choice had to be The Vows date.  Josh scored MAJOR brownie points by taking me to see it in the theater for an early Valentine’s date.  My other favorite movie is the Notebook.  I love Rachel McAdams too.  Having both of them in one movie was fabulous.  Needless to say, this one was quickly added to the list of favorites.  I’m not always that girly and predictable but when it comes to movies, I’ll take chick flicks any day of the week.  Ok let’s get going on with this date shall we?
The Dating Divas shared their idea for writing their own vows because they didn’t get to share vows at their wedding.  Josh and I didn’t either so I think this is a fantastic idea.
I created another version of the printable shared over there:

Write your own vows for Valentine's day on this printable! www.thirtyhandmadedays.comI can’t wait to have Josh put his thoughts down.  He looks and acts like a big, tough guy but really he’s a big teddy bear.  He’s got everyone (but me) fooled.  He’s really romantic and sensitive when he wants to be.  And that’s what got me hook line and sinker.  Sixteen years ago on Valentine’s Day  he spoiled the heck out of me and then told me he loved me.  You see a cute picture of him from our first Valentine’s day.  We like to celebrate special days in a big way- see how I spoiled him on our anniversary a few years ago: Anniversary on the Hour.

Printable vows perfect for Valentine's Day www.thirtyhandmadedays.comDownload a copy of your own printable vowsFor personal use only.  Thanks!
Ok….. onto the basket!  This basket contains everything you’d want to have your own “Vow” date at home.

    It would be nice to go out to dinner. We haven’t been able to go out for valentines day since we got married and I would love to receive some flowers

  13. Shade Ibe says

    my favorite vday gift was my first at age 15…the cutest little bear and a picture of me and my valentine :)

  14. Lorrie says

    A massage table. I know it sounds weird, but hubby insists on never getting a massage. He only gives me massages on it. He calls it my table. ;)

  15. MeKell says

    Favorite valentine’s gift was hubby doing fourteen days of valentine’s countdown with cute stuff for everyday. It was super creative and he put a lot of time into it.

  16. Debbie says

    My favorite valentines gift was when my husband surprised me with tickets to see one of my favorite bands!

  17. Tiffany Talbert says

    Our Anniversary is a couple days before Valentine’s so we usually celebrate the two together. This year will be our 10th Anniversary and I am hoping for a nice night away with my hubby!

  18. Liz Fowble says

    I need help to celebrate valentines day with my husband. He isn’t big on cards and stuff so it is usually up to me.

  19. Melissa Moyers says

    My best vday gift was a necklace from my husband! Unfortunately we’ll both be working all night on valentines this year. :-(

  20. Emily says

    My most memorable valentines was the one after my husband and I got engaged. It was the first time he ever bought me flowers and since I had to work that night, he had them delivered to my work! It was very special!

  21. Valerie Brooke says

    My best valentines day present was the year my husband wrote and recorded a song for me! It was so sweet. Your gift basket looks great!!

  22. Diana Wyrick says

    I’ve always been a sucker for flowers wrapped in paper and chocolate <3 He knows this and he never let's me down. This year will be 29 years of Valentine's days together.

  23. Lisa L says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day was the first with my husband, 5 years ago. Not to say they haven’t been good since but you remember how exciting things are in the beginning ;)
    We were doing the long distance thing and I went to see him in Jersey. He had a fun filled weekend planned. All surprises <3

  24. Lisa says

    My best valentine gift was finding love notes and heart candies all over the house and in my bag for work when hubby had to go to a conference during valentines day.

  25. Maddie Davis says

    My favorite gift to many was strange but to fellow crafty people won’t be, a sewing machine, I asked for one and he got me one for Valentines day!

  26. Jessica says

    I usually make a rich, chocolatey dessert, but I haven’t decided what I’m making this year. Love the giveaway basket!!

  27. says

    I would love to win this! I’m hoping for a date this year with my husband… Something nice maybe a surprise date! :) I love getting thoughtful gifts from my husband that means something special to us.

  28. Kelly Yap says

    For our first Valentine’s date as a couple my husband surprised me with a couple’s dancing class and dinner at a fancy restaurant in downtown Chicago. Now, a little time spent just the two of us–no kids, no dog,no distractions would be heaven!

  29. Tabby Deitrick says

    I come here because there is an encouragement found in few very other places.
    My favorite V-Day gift was a basket my husband got that included a movie, a bottle of wine, some chocolate and a beautiful pink and purple (not sure what the jewels were this much later) ring that was absolutely beautiful!!

  30. LeAnn Johnson says

    My favorite was a night stay at a nice hotel with dinner and chocolate strawberries. Love the basket! What a great giveaway!

  31. Morgan says

    Honestly, I just want See’s every year… my husband isn’t creative, so I just tell him to get me that and a candle and there we go.

    P.S. Love the oreos!

  32. Cadence Morrison says

    My favorite Valentine’s day gift is a picture my daughter colored for me. I’ve never been one for the day, but seeing the excitement through her eyes made it the best ever! Happy Valentine’s day!

  33. Carol in E TN says

    Your basket is great, love the color! Going out for dinner was the usual, although sometimes I was surprised with a loving card and flowers. Thanks for the giveaway.

  34. Caroline says

    The Lindt chocolates look delicious! That’s really all I ever want is some really good dark chocolate!

  35. Sarah says

    One year my husband got me a diamond necklace for valentines day, which was a total shock since we don’t usually make a big fuss over gifts for each other. He tucked it inside a coffee mug and coffee gift card so I wasn’t expecting to find jewelry!

  36. Amy W. says

    favorite valentine’s day gift was a few years ago when my husband got me tickets to the lion king on broadway. :)

  37. Alicia Bailey says

    My favorite Valentine’s day gift is a card my husband gave me-three years in a row. He actually went out and bought the same card three years in a row! The best part is he didn’t realize it until I brought it up. His response was he must have liked the sentiment.

  38. says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was a pair of sunglasses…I could never find a pair that I liked on my face shape and somehow my Valentine was able to do so.

  39. Cynthia Rathunde says

    My husband and I go out to dinner each year. Valentine’s week is the anniversary of us getting together.

  40. says

    I LOVE that basket! I keep eyeing it at Target. My husband and I don’t really do much for Valentine’s Day. Sometimes we get each other a card and maybe go out to dinner!

  41. Tyler H. says

    I like to get flowers for Valentine’s Day, but this year I asked for something more practical – hiking socks! We are trying to get into hiking :) I’m gifting my boyfriend with Light Saber chopsticks! I found them online and he has been hinting about them – he’ll be thrilled!

  42. Sylvia says

    We’re empty nesters and able to enjoy romance at a new level. My husband’s recent medical test results, however, will make me grateful for a hug, kiss, and those three words that mean so much – I love you.

  43. says

    This year my fiance and I will be in Texas. I’ve never been there (I live in New York), so I have no idea what to expect! I love the basket!

  44. Amber says

    We plan to go out to dinner for Valentine’s Day. I also think I’ll make a big chocolate cake!

  45. says

    I am excited for V-Day because we are getting a sitter and going out to dinner!! Wahoo! Gone are those adventurous, young days where we did really exciting things. But I am seriously looking forward to an evening without the baby:)

  46. Meghan says

    When I was younger, my family had a Valentine’s tradition similar to Christmas stockings. We would decorate lunch bags or gift bags and set them out on the mantle to fill them up with fun stuff for each other in the days leading up to Valentine’s day.

  47. Wendy J says

    I would love to recieve your chocolate peanut butter cups (made from your recipe) for Valentine’s day!

    • Mary Parks says

      I love getting a gift certificate to my favorite spa. My husband likes to bring me flowers and my girls always makes me the sweetest valentines.

  48. nikelle says

    The best valentine gift i got was a surprise visit to my fiance! He was so surprised it made the day great! I like to see the things you make and ideas that you come up with! It inspires me to be crafty!! I really enjoy you giving us the printable to some the things you post! Thank you!!

  49. aprillee says

    My husband loves geography and maps so he would appreciate the globe valentine decor in your Valentines section.

  50. Alissa says

    My favorite Valentines gift was a trip to San Francisco. Of course, it was also our honeymoon. :)

  51. Sarah B. says

    I’ve never cared much about Valentine’s Day until now that I have kids old enough to enjoy it. Now I want to show them lots and lots of mushy love.

  52. McKenzie Kennedy says

    Your basket idea is perfect for Valentines Day. I came to your blog today as a part of this blog hop, but then I realized I’ve been to your blog before looking at recipes! Thanks!

  53. Judy Gregory says

    I’m just happy V-day is on a Friday this year. My fella lives 3 ans 1/2 hours away so, we”ll actually get to see each other.

  54. Denise A. says

    I have very traditional tastes in Valentine’s day gifts…. a little chocolate, flowers a card and a nice dinner

  55. Michelle says

    My boyfriend has always worked or had class on Valentine’s day so we haven’t really celebrated it, but this year will be the first time we actually get to spend it together. A few years ago, however, I did celebrate, but with a dear friend. We got dressed up and went to dinner and a special early preview of a movie and it was a fantastic best friend date! Movie dates are the best, so this giveaway is a wonderful idea!

  56. Tobin K. says

    I am madly in love with my guy AND with your basket! I love the romance of it all, and it sparks fresh ideas for me to try. Your creativity and whimsical flair are what draw me in to Thirty Handmade Days again & again. Thanks for the chance to win such a fun experience XOXO

  57. Christine Meyer says

    My husband is not exactly great at the Valentine’s Day gifts. He always defaults to flowers…but I’m ok with that. He gets my favorite: roses (cliche, I know).

  58. Mandi G. says

    My husband wrote me a poem called “What is Love?” for our first Valentine’s Day (we’d only been dating about a month and a half). I loved it! A few years later, I printed a large copy of it and framed it and gave that to him for Valentine’s Day. It now hangs on our bedroom wall. :)

  59. says

    LOVE this fun blog hop! My favorite Valentine’s gift? Hmm – well, I suppose at the time I didn’t see it as a gift but when our only was little, our babysitter backed out on Valentine’s Day night and instead of cancelling our Reservation for dinner out, we dressed up and brought her with us… which turned into a family tradition of celebrating love all together as a family! (Then of course – there is always chocolate!)

  60. danica w says

    My favorite v day gift was a fossil watch my hubby gave me when we were dating. It was so pretty! I loved that thing! Since we’ve been married though, we forgo the gift thing and just try to go out to a nice dinner. Where depends on our current circumstances. .. last year was smashburger… So really as long as I don’t have to cook then most anything qualifies as a nice dinner! Lol

  61. Katie says

    I’m excited for Valentine’s Day this year because it is our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple!

  62. Amy Savage says

    People say Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday and just created to get folks to spend money. I say poppycock! I will happily celebrate any day that is out there to show my hubs some love! Velentine’s Day is super fun! I kinda miss having Velentines for my whole class.

  63. Kelley T says

    Sad, I know… but I don’t remember a great Valentine’s Day. Our anniversary is in January and our daughter’s birthday is Feb 12, my birthday is in March, his in April, so Valentine’s Day usually gets overlooked…

  64. Kim in AZa c says

    One of my favorite Valentine’s traditions we do in our family is having mini mailboxes. Every day, our children wake to a treat from us – could be a candy, something handmade, a coupon for something special (no chores, ice cream date, etc.) They can also leave each other mail in their boxes secretly. It’s a fun activity that helps remind them how much we love each member of our family! :)

  65. Nicole says

    My FAVORITE gift for Valentine’s Day is chocolate covered strawberries and a card from my husband. I love to share the strawberries with him. It’s started to be come our Valentine’s Day tradition!

  66. CharityAngel says

    My husband and I met in February on OKCupid. So he has been the best Valentine’s gift ever!

  67. Marissa Jespersen says

    My favorite gift I have ever gotten was my husband!!! We were married Valentine’s Day 2014. This year will be our 10 year anniversary. We have 4 kids, the youngest being 6 months so we won’t be able to celebrate alone. The fact that after 10 years he is still the man of my dreams is gift enough though.

  68. Jennifer Speed says

    This Valentine’s Day I will be going to see a movie called About Last Night with Kevin Hart…

  69. Michele says

    My favorite Valentine gift would have to be a heart shaped amethyst ring my husband gave me on our first Valentine’s Day!

  70. Tia says

    I love valentine’s day more than most in my family. I love letting EVERYONE know that they are cared for. Not romantically, just loved. I love love. I remember making cupcakes for school with my mom when I was little and being all giddy inside to share them with my friends!

  71. says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gift was a small teddy bear, from my very first boyfriend when I was 14. I have not seen or heard from him in well over a decade, but I still have the teddy bear and still think back very fondly of him and wish him happiness. =)

  72. stephanie says

    My favorite gifts for valentines day is always flowers and chocolate!! Im a pretty simple gal!

  73. Michaela K says

    I’d really like to try to make those Meringue ice cream cones, very adorable!!! I don’t have much luck with Meringue thought, lol. Thanks for the chance!

  74. Melissa says

    Well, my present is always new jewelry but my favorite part is our day trip we take every valentines.

  75. jenni says

    We are going to celebrate Valentine’s with our kids! Maybe a special dinner out and a movie!

  76. Sarah C. says

    I think my favorite gift was an Edible Arrangement, when my husband was deployed. Other than that, just being able to spend time with those I love! :)

  77. Shana says

    Relax and spend time with the kids! the best gifts are the homemade ones :) or food. Can’t go wrong with food.

  78. Stefanie says

    I think one of my favorite gifts was my kindle touch, because my husband was very thoughtful about it. I was going to have a baby soon and he thought it would be good while I was nursing.

  79. Brittney says

    Chocolates, and I love to make valentines day crafts with my kids + chocolate dessert fondue for the whole family on Valentine’s day. Its sort of a family tradition. I would like some more creative ideas for it though. :)

  80. Melora Weeks says

    I love Valentine’s Day! I can not wait to spend it with my sweet boyfriend. We started dating around Valentine’s day last year.

  81. says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was the handwritten love note inside the goofy card my husband got me last year (our first Valentine’s day together).

  82. Maegan says

    My husband is a police officer, and he’s working on Valentines day. This year, I’m making dinner for the WHOLE SHIFT. :) Lasagna, bread sticks, salad and brownies. <3

  83. Vikki Billings says

    My first Valentines Gift was Roses and Oriental lilies, the were in a beautiful crystal red vase. Loved them!

  84. Jill Myrick says

    My favorite Valentines Day gift was the heart shaped ruby jewelry set that my husband gave to me on our very first Valentines Day together.

    jweezie43[at]gmail[dot]com

  85. Rebecca L says

    My favorite valentine’s day gift was dinner cooked for me by my husband. I didn’t even have to clean up!

  86. says

    My hubby has always gotten me amazing valentines day gifts! But the cutest most simple one he has ever given me was a homemade heart shaped valentines day card + homemade cupcakes. I’d love to receive my husband for valentines day, since he is currently DEPLOYED !

  87. Katelin Fish says

    Hi! I just found your website from The Dating Divas! I am so excited to check out your posts and try your awesome ideas! This is my first Valentine’s Day with my husband. We got married this past summer after dating for 5 years. I would love to win this basket to use for Valentine’s Day this year and make my husband’s day! Thanks for the opportunity!

  88. Tonya T. says

    My husband first asked me out on Valentine’s Day so it’s always had special memories for me!

  89. Cherie H. says

    Your gift basket looks like a wonderful way to help celebrate Valentine’s Day!!! My husband and I usually get special gifts for our children to express our love for them, but we never really do anything huge. After the kids go to bed, we usually have some quiet time with a glass of wine and some treats.

  90. Karen Propes says

    My favorite gift was a beautiful eternity ring. 10 yrs ago.. My husband use to always get me flowers and candy. Since our budget is tight, last year we sat by the fire and talked about our memories for the last 22 yrs. We also make each other cards. (I get good ideas from your site)
    Thanks for the chance.

  91. Rachel B. says

    I have no idea what our plans are this year because my husband is insisting on surprising me! I can’t wait to find out :)

  92. Rachel M says

    I haven’t had a whole lot of good Valentine’s days, but what I love best about it is making handmade cards for those I love.

  93. Brooke says

    My husband sent a letter to my favorite musician asking her to send me songwriting tips for V-day. SHE DID! on the back of a napkin. Best.gift.ever. I can never beat that. :)

  94. Rachel B. says

    My favorite Valentine’s day gifts have always been from my kids. My husband and I don’t normally do anything for each other for V-day. It’s the little items from the kids that make me tear up.

  95. Jenna says

    I would LOVE for my husband to be mushy on V-day…but he is exactly the opposite of me, so…I have to do the mushy things. So far, I guess my favorite Valentine’s gifts are the handmade ones from my kids! Especially the ones with their little feet made into a heart <3

  96. Alicia says

    Our first Valentine’s Day together he was still Active Duty Army. I went up to Ft. Hood to visit him and he had his barracks room decorated. Candles, rose petals, a bouquet of roses, a book of e-mails we had sent back and forth while he was deployed (we met while he was deployed…that’s a book in itself!), and a basket full of goodies. It was SO sweet!

  97. Meagan M. Greenan Liani says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gifts have been handmade cards from my kids! I would love to make your loom bracelet with printable with my kids…too cute! Thank you for this fabulous giveaway!! :)

  98. Brook says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was from my husband. He created a scavenger hunt all around the city we lived in. Stops included our favorite places and restaurants. The hunt ended back at our house where we had a low key night just the two of us!

  99. Jacqueline Garza says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gift was a Sweetheart Conversation cake and Heart Pendant Necklace. excited for this giveaway The Vow is my favorite movie!

  100. kesha says

    I love Valentine’s Day because it is another day to share my love with my daughter and husband! Love the gift basket!

  101. Sandra says

    I like the strawberry oreo idea. The bear v-day gift I received was a love note from my husband

  102. Gianna Tascione says

    The best valentines gift ive gotten was my boyfriend. he s the best thing that has ever happened to me

  103. Heather says

    My favorite Valentine’s surprise/gift was my boyfriend said he had to work over the weekend so we were going to celebrate Valentine’s Day the next weekend. When I got home from work on Valentine’s Day he had made a nice dinner, then had popcorn and a “chick flick” ready to watch. And of course he surprised me with our little black lab who is pretty much our everything and our kid for the moment :-)

  104. Lacey says

    Last year my husband gave me a picture of us inside of a picture frame that he made. I thought that was super sweet. I also love getting flowers!

  105. Jesye says

    Very excited about this giveaway! I really hope that I win your basket as I am 30 weeks pregnant and I LOVE taking baths!

    Love the basket. Sin e kids valentines day is always geared toward them. Which I love but this would be perfect for my hubby and me to focus on us.

  109. Melissa Garner says

    My favorite valentines day gift is the one I received from husband after we found out I was pregnant. 1 giant stuffed frog holding a heart and a smaller plush frog wearing little frog slippers that were for the baby! It was just an awesome time in our lives!

  110. Sam L says

    I make my kids t shirts to wear as we make heart shaped Rice Krispies dipped in oink chocolate. It’s their favorite treat.

  111. tamra says

    Last year my husband gave me a beautiful sparkly necklace, which was not something I ever would have expected from him. It was so so sweet!

  112. says

    My husband isn’t romantic at all, and I honestly can’t remember much of what he’s gotten me. My favorite memory is from college, when my boyfriend filled my dorm room with flowers, balloons, and wine and cheese. He even placed Christmas lights all over the room. It was really wonderful.

  113. Manuela says

    My favorite thing on Valentine’s Day is to spend the day with my favorite boys, my hubby and son. We keep it low key, bake some cookies, walk to the nearest park. just enjoying the wonderful Cali weather.

  114. Emillie says

    My favorite Valentines was last year when my amazing boyfriend (now husband) proposed using my mothers ring on the cliff where we first watched the sunset.

  115. Jeannie says

    My favorite valentine’s day gift was an ipod that was engraved with my name on the back. I was so surprised and it was such a loving gesture!

  116. Minette says

    The best gift I received was two years ago when I was pregnant with our second child. My husband cleaned our bathroom, put little candles around and started a bath for me with a new body wash/bubble bath and some new lotion for after along with a fun new Valentine’s decoration. It was so simple but I loved it because I had been saying how I wanted to take a nice bath for so long. I also love making little valentine’s with my kids for their Daddy!

  117. thia Beniash says

    I have only started celebrating valentines day over the past few years. My fave would be Berber daisies my hubby gave me.

  118. Christie says

    I love making homemade Valentines gifts! This has become even more fun now that I am a mom and I receive homemade gifts as well. This year I am going to make fun Valentines with my daughter to take to her daycare.

  119. Angie says

    This is our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple, so I want to make is special. Just not so sure how…

  120. says

    I found you bcs of the basket giveaways. Doing some Blog Hopping. I am hoping that my man puts some thought into VDay. Not necessarily a gift but plan something worthwhile. I know he kept my Christmas list so what I did not get he would get it later. He’s fun that way. Just being with him in a romantic way is great.

  121. says

    My mother-in-law had a diamond ring she never wore, so she gave two of the stones to my then-fiance’ so he could have them re-set into earrings. I only wear them about once a year, but they’re beautiful!

  122. Kathy Lane says

    I would love to get flowers for Valentines,but in 38 years of being married I have only received them one time.I always get a nice card and a box of candy.This year I want to go on a weekend getaway with my husband.

  123. Ami D. says

    My best Valentine’s day present was when I got to come home to my husband after being away for awhile and he had decorated the house with hearts.

  124. says

    I am looking forward to any time I get with my husband on V-Day. He works 2 hours away and stays with a friend during the weekdays and I only get to see him Fri-Sun. Just having him home is the best gift!

  125. Valerie Guerrero says

    the pink rose my husband surprised me with last year was the best valentines gift ive ever receeived. i would love to make the strawberry oreos this year for valentines. i dont know what we r going to do this year

  126. Kim says

    Love getting flowers from my love. I am planning on leaving love notes Feb 1 leading up to v-day.

  127. Amber says

    Planning a weekend getaway trip this Valentine’s day. Love spending some extra alone time with my hubby!

  128. Glenna says

    New to your site!! Love roses or tulips & dark chocolate. And I LOVE that mint basket also!!!

  129. Diana says

    This year we will likely be staying home and spending the evening with our 6 month old son. It will be better than any other Valentine’s because it will be the first one we get to spend with our little man.

  130. Rocio Mar says

    I am not creative at all so I just love the fact that I found your website. I am going to copy the You float my boat basket for my family for this valentine’s 2014!! And for my child’s school friends I’m making the love bug cookies Thanks for all the great ideas.

  131. Angela Larson says

    We love to do an all red & white dinner with our kids, complete with candles. They love it and my hubby & I celebrate later! (less crowds) :)

  132. Stacey Turner says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift is that my husband makes dinner for me. He rarely cooks except for in the summer when he can use the grill, but Feb. 14th is always the exception. :)

  133. Jennifer Asher says

    Actually, last year my hubby got me a whole selection of chick flicks and even watched a few with me!!

  134. Trish says

    He came home with the typical chocolates and my favorite flowers on our first Valentines Day. He also came home with groceries and scented bubble bath. The deal was while he was cooking, while I got to enjoy a relaxing bubble bath! It was so wonderful and romantic! He made me homemade Chicken Cordon Blue, homemade Scalloped Potatoes, Salad with homemade Dijon dressing and homemade Chocolate Mousse. I had many loves that night of delicious food and of my sweety. ;-)

  135. says

    We never do anything for Valentine’s Day so this year I would love to surprise my husband, even if it’s not a whole lot. My dream would be to be able to rent a hotel room for a night so we can have a night for just the two of us. The last time we had a night without the kids was 2 1/2yrs ago when we went to pick out tuxes for our wedding.

  136. Nikki Hammon says

    My husband is coming home on February 16th, after 6 months, so that is going to be my Valentine’s gift this year!

  137. Carlly Kate says

    Looking forward to spending V-day with my family and several sweet families in the mountains!

  138. Abbey says

    I love getting candy! Chocolate is my ultimate weakness! Especially if it’s peanut butter and chocolate! (=

  139. Emilie C says

    This vday I will just make a nice dinner and dessert for my man to enjoy while I’m at work :/ I work til midnight every friday

  140. Shonna Hast says

    I am loving that Valentines is making it’s way back….a lot of people don’t like Valentines day, but i think its a great holiday!!

  141. Donna says

    We don’t really do anything special on Valentine’s Day, but I would love to make the Strawberry Heart Oreos and use the cute bag toppers for the family.

  142. heather tarver says

    I hope to go out on a date night with my husband because it’s been a while since we’ve had time alone together!

  143. Kellie says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was my first phone call from my (now) husband. :) This Valentine’s day we will enjoy the day with our kids. Then perhaps on the weekend go out to see a movie together. We haven’t decided yet.

  144. Rachel B says

    I’d love to make that valentines french toast! haha. I’m just hoping to have some alone time away from work this valentines day. Would be heavenly!

  145. Judith says

    Unfortunately, this Valentine’s day lands on a Thursday and I have an evening class to attend….so I will be spending it with my professor and fellow students.

  146. Jen says

    I have already started making valentines! My mom always made valentines day special for me and my siblings and it has always been a favorite holiday of mine. I love showing love to my family!

  147. Jordan L says

    This year for Valentines Day my hubs and I are just hoping to steal some alone time! With three little ones it’s hard to find the time!

  148. Rebecca Brewer says

    My husband is working on Valentine’s day and he is usually beat when he gets home. So get the kids to bed and a quiet evening.

  149. Lindsey Morris says

    New here!! Love your site!! My husband sprinkled rose petals all over the bed that led to my present <3

  150. Jyna says

    My favorite Valentine’s day gift was when me and my boyfriend accidently ended up making each other the same valentine’s fruit dipped in chocolate bouquet and even our cards looked alike!

  151. says

    My favorite Valentines Day gift ever is a homemade card my husband made for me using various crafting supplies out of my craft room. He cut out hearts, used glitter and monoadhesive….the whole nine yards! He works construction and is definitely a “manly man” at heart, but his willingness to put that aside and use a little glitter completely melted my heart. :)

  152. Kim Ross says

    Cute basket. I actually haven’t ever heard of the movie, but the printable is a very sweet idea.

  153. Lauren Becker says

    What a fantastic basket! I would want to have a Valentine’s Day that was relaxing and full of things I love.

  154. Sarah H says

    My favorite valentine’s gift was a surprise gift of chocolates that were delivered to my school in high school from a friend.

  155. Karen says

    I hope to have my kitchen remodel done by Valentine’s Day!!! It will be nice to wash my dishes in my sink instead of my bathtub! I’ll be thrilled to be able to cook a meal on my stove or bake something again.

  156. Debra J Combs says

    My favorite Valentines Day gifts have been the sweet cards and “nick knacks” that my boys have made for me over the years. And as they have grown up the sweet cards and flowers that they bring. They are wonderful boys and have wonderful wives that I am sure help them remember to get my cards! LOL! But I love them greatly!

    How do I celebrate Valentines Day is with my day care children. We have lots of fun getting ready for the big day. We start out our day with special things like heart shaped pancakes and strawberries for breakfast, then heart shaped sandwiches for lunch, and to top off the day Valentine card exchange in the afternoon with all sorts of sweet treats! I love to see them having so much fun! And I have as much fun as they do! I love your site for the wonderful Valentines Day printables! Thank you for having the wonderful things that we can use with our families.

    What I would like to receive for Valentines Day this year????? A special question from that special someone that I am crazy about! TeeHeeHee!!!!

  157. Stacy Smith says

    What was your favorite Valentine’s Day gift? a necklace from my boyfriend in 3rd grade. My plans for Valentines Day this is year is to stay home and RELAX.

  158. Jenn Harrison says

    I just found your blog by blog hopping….so creative :) My favorite valentine’s gift was the proposal and engagement ring I got 6 years ago. been married 5.5 years and still my favorite :)

  159. Camille Hunt says

    My favorite valentines gift from my hubby was when he made a coupon book for me. My hubby isn’t to fond of valentines day so it meant a lot for him to do that.

  160. Wendy F says

    My husband isn’t a big fan of Valentine’s Day, and our wedding anniversary is Feb. 9th, so we usually just celebrate once for both days. I’d love to have a night out with just him – we haven’t done that in so long…I honestly cannot remember the last time!

  161. Shannon S says

    My favorite valentines day was my very first with my how hubby from HS. He brought me to a nice dinner and ate, even though he couldn’t since he was wrestling. Included a nice little balloon and candy. We haven’t celebrate much since….I’ve been pregnant a couple times during this holiday, but he tries to make special.

  162. Stephanie H says

    My fave gift (so far) was when my hubby (then fiancé) saved up and took me to my favorite local fancy restaurant for dinner and surprised me with some dried flower jewelry I’d been wanting. :)

  163. Robyn says

    My favorite Valentine’s day gift ever has got to be my now husband asking me to be his girlfriend!!! *Still cheesing*

  164. erika says

    would love to share this with my boyfriend of six and a half years… i’m really hoping for a commitment to make OUR vows soon

  165. Gabrielle says

    My favorite Valentine’s day gift thus far has been me and my significant other getting our names tatted. This year I don’t really have plans as my spouse is miles and miles away for the time being :/

  166. Sara says

    Looking forward to quality time with my hubby at home! I’ll make him his favorite meal and we’ll snuggle up on the couch together. We always avoid going out on Valentine’s Day!

  167. Gina says

    My favorite gift was homemade chocolate rosebuds from my three kids. My husbands helped them make them from Hershey Kisses!

  168. Mindy says

    Last year I made the 52 reasons why I love you cards and they were a big hit. He loved them and still flips through them. Right now my hubbie is out of a job and feeling very down. Winning one of these baskets will really help bring his spirits up!!!

  169. Sarah Beer says

    I got a lovely necklace from my husband with a little man with a blue diamond belly. I’m not a fan of jewelry, but I loved that!

  170. Diane Murray says

    21 years ago, my oldest son (who was 15 then and had an after school job) and his best friend Brady came home from working at Winn-Dixie at around 11:00 p.m. They knocked on my bedroom door came in and flooded my bed with roses! They got to bring home the left over roses and what it sweet surprise it was. I laughed and cried at the same time. I will never forget it.

  171. Ali says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day happened the year I met my hubby. We met on January 3, then he came to visit me and meet my family on Valentine’s weekend–he told me he loved me then and we decided to get married! We got married about a year and a half later!

  172. Adriana Delgado says

    This V-Day I’m going to send my husband flowers and fill all of his pockets with hearts for the entire month!

  173. Terressa T. says

    We will be celebrating early this year. My husband is a nurse and is scheduled that whole weekend to work. So I hope to make it a fun surprise to celebrate early :)

  174. Katie says

    The only Valentine’s Day gift I’ve ever gotten were teddy bears, but they were nice and soft at least! Great to cuddle with.

  175. Jaye L. says

    My favorite gift was the first hand made card my oldest daughter gave me 21 years ago, when she was in kindergarten.

  176. Monica says

    My favorite v-day gifts are cards from my hubby that let me know that he was thinking about me and that he still loves me after all these years!

  177. says

    My favorite valentines gift from my husband was the valentines day before he proposed. I told him I wanted something shiney and be wrapped a beautiful pair of earrings in tin foil haha. Was too funny!

  178. Traci says

    The best Valentine’s Day gift I ever received was when I was in high school. It was a year I did
    not have anyone to share the holiday with. So my wonderful sister sent me a dozen roses with a message attached that read “Admiring you from afar.” I was so touched that she wanted me to be happy!

  179. says

    My favorite gift was my husband getting me a gift certificate to a spa last year. The other gift I loved was when I was taken to the beach on Valentine’s Day for a picnic when I was a teen but I had no idea where we were going because I was blindfolded the whole time. :)

  180. Melissa Skeen says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was a heart-shaped pancake breakfast that my husband made for me

  181. Donna says

    My favorite gift is the extra attention to loving each other, husband, children & family on valentine’s day! And yes, that is a gift!

  182. Katie H says

    Honestly, I love it when I get some me-time on Valentine’s Day. As much as I love chocolate, some time reading a book in the bathtub without little kids banging on the door would just be heaven. :)

  183. Alicia says

    I got flowers for Valentines from my husband and 5 years ago I had my second daughter on the 16th. I think of her as my gift that year.

  184. Sophie Jennings says

    So unbelievably creative! Why wasn’t I born with a creative mind? Hahaha. I’m so jealous! I would love to win this for my husband and I. I would say the best gift I received on Valentines was my husband asking me to marry him 6 years ago and we have been married 5 years now. This is only the 2nd year we have been able to spend it together because he was always in Afghanistan so I’m SO grateful to have him home for holidays now!!

  185. Laura says

    I spent last valentine’s in Seattle! It was so perfect to walk around the city & go out to eat with my love!

  186. Alisha says

    My favorite V-day gift was a giant teddy bear when I was a junior in high school. My boyfriend (now husband) knew that I had always wanted one delivered to me in my classroom so he did it! :)

  187. Amy R says

    Best Valentine’s gifts ever were the boxes for goodies I would get from my mom while in college… she would always send some yummy treats, a little cash, and cute Valentine undies.

  188. Jennifer W says

    I love it and need date night planned out because Baby # 3 will be just a couple weeks old on Valentine’s Day.

  189. Sydney says

    My favorite valentines day gift ever was finally spending my valentine’s day with a great guy, who is now the love of my life! Cheesy, but so true. :)

  190. Ashley says

    My favorite valentines gift is a heart felt letter. They mean a lot to me and there always priceless.

  191. Diane McMahon says

    I believe that people should date a lot when they are younger to figure out what type of person they are most interested in. In college I dated several very nice guys and when valentines day came they all sent flowers and chocolate. My father could not believe all the flowers, but I am still partial to chocolate.

  192. TRACY says

    I love every Valentines Day as <3 are one of my favorite things. They are everywhere during Valentines Day. My favorite thing about Valentines Day is that my husband and I get the kids a pizza, put them to bed early with a book to read or listen to and we order take out from a nice restaurant and have a romantic dinner at home.

  193. Nancy Clark says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was a jewelry box given to me by my boyfriend of 4 years. In that jewelry box was an engagement ring, and after I opened the box my boyfriend asked me to be his wife.

    We were married three months later, and will celebrate our 38th anniversary this year.

    Saying yes to his proposal is something I have never regretted. He has made me the person I am, I am a better person as a result of it.

  194. Leigh says

    My favorite valentines day gift was when DH made me dinner… he is NOT a cook. But he bought a frozen pizza which he cut to be a heart. Also had some heart cookies and champagne. It was sweet because you could see he put thought into it without spending a lot of money. Super cute.

  195. Faith Dew says

    My husband doesn’t get me any gifts, let alone valentines. My ultimate gift would be a cruise anywhere warm and safe.

  196. Cortney says

    Not sure what the hubby is going to get me or what we will do but I am just excited to be with him– its our first valentines day together being married!!! Love it!

  197. Jaclyn B says

    My husband and I love Valentines day. He always gets me flowers and something cute. I love that we can have a day devoted to each others love! :)

  198. says

    I’m really looking forwad to this year … my husband got us concert tix and an overnight stay at a hotel, even arrange for his parents to watch the kids! woohoo! Kathy K

  199. Elizabeth says

    I just love spending time with my husband… hes in the navy so time is precious. I’m happy to say that this Valentines day we’ll get to spend it together :D He is graduating from his second part of school for nuclear mechanic (big deal! :D I’m very proud of him, and super excited that that’s how we are spending our day)

  200. says

    There is usually always something going on so we try to do a dinner the weekend before or after. Nothing too fancy, just a chance to get out.

  201. Amanda says

    The best gift I got was the year my husband planned a romantic date night….in front of our fireplace. We had cupcakes from my favorite restaurant, watched a DVD of our honeymoon. Looked through old photo albums. Then he surprised me with a DVD he had made with our old pictures set to music!

  202. Amanda Palmatier says

    Kind of corny, but… I just love getting roses every year. They spruce up the dining room table and the valentine’s day love lingers on for a week! I never like getting chocolates… I’m usually trying to lose the extra pounds from the holidays. LOL!

  203. Charity says

    Wow! Lots of comments! Do you actually get to read them all? I am a softie when it comes to flowers on Valentines day, but the look in my husband’s eyes beats any gift. :-)

  204. says

    This is my very first time on your blog. Luckily I subscribe to A Little Tipsy and I was introduced to you from there. There are so many cute projects that I can’t wait to try. As soon as I find the time for them all!

  205. says

    My favorite Valentines ever was my last before I moved in with my now husband. He lived in Michigan and I lived in Hilton Head, SC. I came up for a long weekend, he took me tubing (my first time in the snow!) And then gave me a locket inscribed with *my heart belongs to you*

    We had known from the first time we met in person (we met playing world of warcraft online…) That we were a…. Thing. This was it for us…. It was just a matter of time. Getting back on that plane to go home without him was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do….

    He and my angsty teenager are the only two things in my life I’ve ever been 100% absolutely sure of…

    I went home, turned in my notice on my water front rental and hospital job (that’s love y’all! I left the ocean and year round spring and summer to move to the arctic circle!). April 1, I and my kidlet and my two cats were residents of Michigan!

    Best. Valentine’s. Ever.

  206. Rose Ellis says

    My favorite holiday is Valentine’s Day, my hubs always surprises with the greatest gifts. My favorites are a Blue Topaz ring and Bracelet. I always cook him a special meal. We are not much for going out., due to his health problems. He has kidney cancer and it makes hard for dates out. But all that said, we both enjoy just staying home and being together. I love this basket idea. Would definitely like to be a winner. Your site is one of my favorites, it has really helped me be more organized. Thanks for all of your hard work.

  207. Carolsue says

    I love anything for Valentine’s Day — as long as the hubby remembers, I’m ok with it!

  208. Kelly S says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was my baby girl, she was due on Valentine’s day 2012 but she arrived a little early.

  209. Jessica says

    I would be SOOO excited to use the bath salts, rubber ducky and loofah! And we can use the gift card for new Valentine’s PJ’s to cuddle up in and watch the Vow. Thanks for doing this! How fun!

  210. Lesley M says

    I love just spending the day (and any day) with my husband. That alone means more than anything he can buy me!

  211. Darianna Lao says

    I haven’t received anything for Valentine’s Day. In fact when I was engaged my trip to the emergency room with my fiancee was enough surprise for me last year! I think I’ll stick with a nice romantic night cuddling and yummy food! But anything to make the night more romantic would be amazing.

  212. Cheri B says

    We really haven’t done Valentine Day gifts but I love that we strive to spend that time together in a special way.

  213. Candi S. says

    I love the bath crystals. Normally my husband and I don’t do anything special for Valentine’s day. Thanks for the chance to have a memorable evening with my husband.

  214. Melissa Vaught says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was a ring that my hubby got me a couple years ago. He picked it out all by himself and surprised me with it, which was the best part because he usually doesn’t pick out stuff by himself. He did a great job picking out a pretty ring! It really is special to me and I have worn it everyday since he gave it to me!

  215. says

    One of my favorite Valentine’s Days was in college when all the girls in my small group spent the evening getting dressed up and going out to dinner together. We took lots of pictures of our group in their fancy clothes and had a fun evening even though we didn’t have official dates.

  216. Lexi says

    We usually don’t do much for Valentine’s Day since we both of birthdays around the 14th, but my favorite Valentine’s Day was the year we picked out our wedding bands on Valentine’s Day!

  217. Susan Smith says

    This Valentines Day is my 25th Wedding Anniversary so we plan on going out to a nice restaurant to celebrate-without the kids.

  218. Carla says

    My hubby and have been together for 20 years. He doesn’t really ‘get’ valentines day. Every year I do all kinds of sweet things for him and the kids, but he’s really random. He’ll do nothing most years, flowers a couple times, out to dinner a couple times, cards on and off. So just doing SOMETHING is really special to me.

  219. Michelle says

    Love the basket!!!!
    It would be amazing to get out to a nice dinner or activity with the husband! Just some alone time away from the kids :)

  220. Brandi says

    I visited because you were in the blog hop. However, big fan of your blog now and I will be back often!

  221. Sunnymay says

    Chocolate, sugar cookies in Valentine shapes or motifs, perfume, wine and books are my usual Valentine’s Day gifts. This year, I can have the perfume and books because I’m maintaining a diet until summer when the weight I’ve been carrying for over 10 years will be gone. So far, 18 pounds down.

  222. April says

    I think one of the best things to celebrate on Valentine’s Day is God’s love for us that He sent Jesus to show us this love :)

  223. Betsy Barnes says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was a small box of chocolate my hubby gave me on our first date, which was 26 years ago on Valentines Day. We spent the day hiking, had a wonderful picnic. It was the best day and we’ve had so many more and many more to come. :)

  224. Michelle says

    One year when our first child was a baby, my husband bought me a MAC makeup brush that I had been pining for. It was such a surprise, and he said he bought it because it was a total luxury. It was, and still is!

  225. Brittani says

    My favorite valentines day is when I came home to clues around the house. I had to follow the heart path and balloons to the first clue. This led me to my CD player where I had to press play to my favorite love songs. Then I got my next clue that led me to my closet where there was a new outfit and finally the third clue led me outside where the car was on and ready to take me to a fancy dinner. !

  226. Samantha says

    I love your basket so much! It is a perfect valentines day date night. I made was your “dirty diet coke” gift and printable. My friend LOVED it, and needless to say, I’ve been hooked to your blog since!

  227. Susan Chester says

    My favorite Valentine’s gifts were the cards my children made when they were small. I still have them!

  228. Danielle says

    When we first started dating, my (very non-artsy) husband drew me a Valentine’s Day card with pictures of all of our dates. =}

  229. Crystal says

    I don’t really need to receive anything. I just want a night cuddled up watching a movie and eating some great take out.

  230. Debra says

    I love Valentine’s Day, since I’m a romantic at heart. Last year my hubby was battling cancer, so this year it’s time to CELEBRATE! We are hitting the town as only an older couple can. Dinner, a moonlit drive, and a cozy movie at home. : )

  231. Dezi A says

    I’ve always loved your “I wheelie like you” valentines for kids. This may be the year I have my 4 year old do it! :)

  232. says

    Best Valentine’s Day was when my boyfriend showed up at my door unexpectedly. He lived 1,500 miles away at the time and it was a total surprise.

  233. Robyn says

    My son was born on V-day so that’s the best gift i’ve ever received! But I like receiving my favorite sweet treats as a v-day gift!

  234. April was in CT now CA says

    I love that we celebrate all year long in unexpected ways of surprising each other instead of on a day we’re both expecting it.

  235. Jenny T says

    hmmm…trying to remember any valentine gifts…oh, my mom gave our family tickets to jerry seinfeld live one year!! very fun!!!
    and i love 30 days for organizing!! thanks!!

  236. Tori Durr says

    I have had lots of great presents on Valentines Day but i really just love having a night to spend with my husband and this will be our first one married! I really like all the cute printables on your website.

  237. Traci says

    What a wonderful idea! We spend valentines day with our children and celebrate together. Love grows as a family!

  238. Ashley says

    My daughter was born two days before Valentines Day last year which was the best present I could ever ask for, for many years to come! <3

  239. Allison Downes says

    What a nice basket! I would love to win this. I love those strawberry heart oreos. Thank you for the giveaway!

  240. Laralyn Smith says

    My husband is really wonderful about writing me a letter telling me how much he loves me each Valentines. It is by far my favorite and I keep them to pull out when I need a little pick-me-up during the year.

  241. Ashley C says

    My most memorable Valentine’s Day was when my husband and I were dating in high school. There was a school dance on Valentine’s Day we were planning to go to but I got mono the week of the dance so I couldn’t go and instead he bought me The Notebook and cooked me dinner and we just hung out at my parent’s house. Very sweet :)

  242. Terri Herman says

    My husband always buys me the most thoughtful cards. I sometimes hates the money he spends, but when I read them, they are so touching and I realize that they are the words he would like to say to me. So they are priceless!

  243. Melissa Goyette says

    we don’t do a lot for Valentine’s, but my husband and I usually get each other specialized boxes of See’s with our favorite chocolates.

  244. Suzanne T. says

    It use to be a card and maybe some flowers or candy, but nowadays its hugs and kisses from my grandchildren!

  245. Marlene says

    I love the idea of making loom bracelet as Valentine gifts. This will be the perfect gift for our church youth group.

  246. alyce poalillo says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day was the year I got engaged with a heart shaped diamond.

  247. Emma Spicer says

    My favorite Valentine was when my boyfriend got “crafty” and put all my gifts in separate mason jars. He even built me some goodies from old barn wood!

  248. Erin G. says

    You’re valentine’s day section post on creating bookmarks is tops! My hubby and I have started to read books aloud together and it’s been so much fun, your idea would make it that much better! Thanks.

  249. Rosemary R. says

    My husband once surprised me with homemade dinner and he even baked a red velvet heart shaped cake for me.

  250. Erika says

    My hubby and I, honestly customarily do something really simple for Valentines day because our wedding anniversary comes so quickly afterward. We have gotten in the habit of getting a heart shaped pizza every year and staying in to avoid the valentines day dinner rush. We actually just gave birth to our first child 2 weeks ago, and with all the lack of sleep and changes in our life Id like to do something a little different to keep things fun and interesting.

  251. Alysia Bischoff says

    My favorite valentines gift would be anytime I get to have a little get away with my cute hubby.

  252. Courtney says

    My favorite Valentines Day was when my husband and our best friends went to a Sarah McLachlan concert. Best Ever.

  253. Tina R says

    My favorite Valentine Day gift was a single red rose delivered by my boyfriend at work along with a note detailing our plans for the evening! I’m not telling what the note said!

  254. Kimberly says

    One year when I was single, my mom gave me a box of chocolates with a beautiful valentine attached saying she felt like God wanted me to be His valentine. I’ll never forget that!

  255. Felecia says

    My favorite gift was a Saturday afternoon experience. Before my 6 year old was born I would go out for breakfast with my sisters on Saturday morning. Well this Saturday (Valentine Weekend) after our brunch I was dropped off at my house and immediately I was greeted by little post cards lining the walk, each had a poem type note that led to the next and the next and then another was taped to the door with instructions. When I opened the door there were rose petals leading to my private quarters door which was closed and taped to it was another poetic instruction. Well, I was directed to bathroom filled with bubbles and frangrance, flowers and longerie….and I can’t say more, except there was also candy and sparkling cider too! Nuff said. It was a love Valentine Afternoon and Nite!

  256. Jackie says

    When we were first married my husband bought a romantic package and we had dinner, dancing, and a stay at the nearby Marriott! It was really romantic. In fact we met at a church valentines dance! But I’m not sure what we will be doing this year, things have certainly changed, three kids, my husband crazy career schedule, and no money… He has to work the Saturday after valentines so we can’t do anything to crazy or late and then our 6th anniversary will be on the 28th (it’s really on leap year buy we try to celebrate on the 28th and 1st). I have a feeling this v-day and anniversary will be really quiet and at home.

  257. Amy T. says

    My favorite valentine’s gift is one that is from the heart, and not necessarily bought(although buying food so I don’t have to make it is always a good gift). I am not someone who needs jewelry or candy. Just plan some time to spend together, offer to brush my hair or give me a back rub, and give me quality time. My husband is great at this!

  258. Shawna says

    With three children we usually don’t go out on Valentine’s Day. It’s too busy! We will do something simple at home for all of us:)

  259. Andrea says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gift was roses at work one year. They were beautiful and it was unexpected.

  260. Toneria M says

    My favorite Vday gift was last year when my boyfriend had me pampered all day and in the evening we had dinner on a private yacht cruise. I was absolutely speechless but I enjoyed and appreciated every minute of it.

  261. Brianne K says

    My plans for Valentine’s Day are:

    Taking a bath with bath salts, rubber ducky and shower pouf… then cuddling up with the hubby watching The Vow while eating Lindt chocolates and Swedish fish while we write our vows to each other… just saying ;)

  262. Teresa says

    My favorite VDay was when we were stationed in Germany with the US Army and got to have dinner at an Italian restaurant in Italy!

  263. Becki says

    Love the bubble bath my husband drew for me complete with wine, wine glass and homemade chocolate covered strawberries!

  264. Jenifer says

    My favorite Valentine’s date was when my husband brought me dinner in bed because I was pregnant and sick. He was so sweet!

  265. Janey says

    I love that green basket as well! My best Valentine gift was a trip back to our first date, including dinner, dessert and flowers.

  266. Wendy says

    I have always loved Valentine’s Day so much, but this year is especially special because I have a boyfriend this year. :) We are going to make dinner together (including chocolate-covered strawberries), watch romantic movies, and cuddle on the couch. :)

  267. Kelly says

    My husband is a very romantic person so I don’t have to wait for Valentine’s day for some romance in my life. That being said, I still can’t wait to see what’s in store this Feb 14th lol!!

    P.s. I have never heard of your blog until today, but you can bet I will be stopping by now that I do know. :-)

  268. Heather says

    My favorite gift was my first Valentines after I had moved away from home. Out of the blue, chocolate covered strawberries showed up at my door.

  269. Annie says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gift was a card from my son on his first Valentine’s Day with his handprint :)

  270. says

    Valentines is the day after our anniversary. This year is our 11th, and it has been a long, hard road. There have been many times that either he or I have wanted to call it quits, but we always manage to make it through somehow. I’ve learned to take it one day at a time. I have a chronic illness, and because my husband is my primary caretaker, he is seriously burned out. I would love to whisk him away on a vacation, but will have to make do with turning my daughter’s old bedroom into his home office. For the last two years, his desk has been in our bedroom, but we both dislike that. I am going to surprise him with a clean, organized, home office where he can grab quiet time while studying or playing a game.

  271. Erin says

    My favorite gift was a simple drawing that I received when I was just dating my husband in high school. It was a pencil drawing of a rose. A rose that will never die. I still have the drawing. :)

  272. Kathleen Ward says

    My favorite Valentine’s surprise was in college when, my then boyfriend, husband surprised me by flying out to visit me. :)

  273. Yuchen says

    My fav. V-day Present was when my best friend, whom I call Wifey, put like 30 electronic candles all over my room and made me paper roses that was also scattered all over my room. I came back and the lights were off and the whole place looked like a scene out of a movie. She had flowers on the table, candles everywhere and chocolates on the table as well. It was one of those “girls know what girls like” type presents. =) Never had a boyfriend out do her yet!

  274. Dawn Cox says

    My favorite vday present is the ring my hubby bought me our first year. It was then stolen and pawned for drugs about 2 years ago! not fun! but it’s still my favorite because it was in the shape of a heart!

  275. Jessica Hornibrook says

    On our first valentines’ my man (now husband) asked my dad if he could marry me – best gift ever!

  276. Linda Montes says

    When my husband and I were dating he gave me two plush puppies hugging each other. And roses. <3 <3

  277. Marilyn Sultar says

    I do love the basket!!! More, I love the idea of ordering out and cuddling with hubby to watch a romantic DVD and pigging out on candy and popcorn! Great idea!!!!

  278. Katherine says

    I am not big on Valentine’s Day, but my husband always goes all out. Flowers, candy, other presents. It’s one of his favorites!

  279. says

    The best Valentine I ever received was two years ago when I was student teaching in Kindergarten. I was engaged and when I walked into my classroom there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers on my desk from my fiance! I had never been sent flowers before in my life and it was so sweet and wonderful.

    Thanks for the giveaway! Such a good movie!

  280. Kiery W says

    Honestly, we have no idea what we would like to do for Valentine’s Day!! I would love to plan a fun getaway but with work and school I’m not sure what we will have time to do!

  281. Samantha says

    I get to spend my Valentine’s Day with the 3 sweet girls that I nanny for. I haven’t yet figured out what we’ll be doing, but I’m sure it will be TONS of fun!

  282. Mandi says

    Hubby and I are FINALLY getting to see George Strait in concert on V-Day. Our first dance was to one of his songs, so we’re VERY excited his playing in our area that night!

  283. Jenny says

    My man is not big on Valentine’s Day– but he has hinted this year, so I’m hoping for a ring! But whatever happens this year, my boyfriend and son will be the best valentine’s gift, period.

  284. Ariel says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was an engagement ring! That’s right, 2 years ago my now husband proposed on Valentine’s day! He knew I wouldn’t expect him to actually propose on a holiday so that was the best way to surprise me. :)

  285. Audrey M. says

    I love your “no food” Valentines. I have to limit the sweets my son eats so I always send fun goodies like those to all his class parties.

  286. Sarah S says

    I haven’t had many valentines with my man but my favorite gift was a stuffed animal (so cheesy but I’m a huge stuffed animal person!) that my dog ended up destroying ten minutes later! We laughed so hard about it, it’s a sweet memory.

  287. Rachel says

    Before we were married, my husband wrote me the longest sweetest poem on Valentine’s Day. Every year I get it out and read it!

  288. Casey Houghton says

    I love valentine’s cookies! One of the best gifts ever was a morning to sleep in and some cookies for breakfast!

  289. Loren says

    My husband made me a beautiful CD of “our music” and a great dinner to enjoy while we listened to the music. An act of love for sure!

  290. Amanda C says

    My favorite Valentines gift was from my boyfriend (now husband) on our first Valentines Day together. We went to different colleges and it was during the middle of the week so we decided to wait and celebrate the following weekend. After classes I was home hanging out with my roommates when he appeared at our door to take me out! He brought a small scrapbook of our first year together. He set the bar really high that first year! We’ve been together almost 10 years now!

  291. Shelly says

    My favorite gift was a box of chocolates from my husband, and a smaller box from my 3 year-old. He was so proud that he got to give me a big present just like his daddy!

  292. Vanessa says

    Thank you so much for the chance to win!

    To be honest, the hubby and I don’t celebrate V-Day, since our wedding anniversary is just days from “day of love”. So, we just celebrate our very own Valentine’s Day. ;)

  293. jenny says

    Love Valentines!!! Your basket is so cute and I love the Vow printables!!! You are very creative! We always celebrate with our kiddos with a gorgeous seafood dinner. My girls look forward to it all year. We eat on our china and have sparkling cider. The table is lit with candles. It is a fun night! Husband and I usually just hang out after the kids are all tucked in.

  294. Jenna V says

    I don’t need any over the top gift for valentine’s day. I just like an “I love you” and some time with my husband.

  295. ivette s says

    we have little boys so I usually make a yummy valentine’s dinner, decorate the house, and have a movie date with the hubs after they go to bed. its simple but its perfect, I have the best three valentines a girl could ask for!

  296. Kara C says

    My husband and I always go out to dinner to celebrate. This year I hope to surprise him with a new wedding band he was wanting!

  297. candi jeffery says

    Our last valentine date was a night in…with a quiet dinner and a romantic movie.(Snuggle time :0) We usually just go on a date for Valentines and each of us get a new outfit. Don’t spend alot of money..I love your bag and love the Valentines basket you put together.. We all need to VOW to treat other better, and enjoy more quality time together..

    Thanks

  298. Kirstin K says

    my iPad a few years ago – I was so surprised as we usually don’t exchange gifts – so thoughtful of him as he knew I really wanted one!

  299. Shannon says

    I received a handwritten poem from my husband about our love and how it has made him a better man. I bawled like a baby!

  300. Courtney says

    My hubby and I don’t usually get to do much for valentines day because we have little ones. I’d love to go on a romantic dinner date with him, and curl up to a movie afterwards!

  301. amanda goodenough says

    my favorite Valentines Day gift is just to spend quality alone time with my boyfriend. Getting to snuggle in bed all day is my perfect Valentines Day!

  302. Nancy Saller says

    Our anniversary is very close to Valentines Day so we usualy combine them with a dinner out. My husband is not very romantic but we have been married for 51 years this year!

  303. Delina says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was from the annual card from my Grandpa each year! Now my children get the cards from their Great-Grandpa and it just makes my holiday!!!

  304. shantelle stately says

    We both love chocolate and Valentine’s Day is our excuse to it lots of it. I would love to try some chocolate covered strawberries. A simple dinner and movie is my favorite date night. Love the giveaway!

  305. BrieAnn says

    A couple of years ago my husband bought a bottle with a cork, filled it about half way with small sea shells and then wrote a note on to a piece of canvas and tucked it into the bottle. I love that note, the bottle everything, and it still is displayed in our home.

  306. Suzanne B says

    It was just being with my husband on our first Valentine’s Day when we were dating. We did not give each other anything.

  307. Martha Schultz says

    As long as I get to spend quality time with my Husband without the kids, that is all I care about for Valentines!

  308. Hollias says

    I worked at a flower shop while I went to college, do for 4 years I dealt with the Valentine’s Day rush! I don’t know how many thousands of red roses I packaged up for lucky ladies to receive. So when I met my husband, I told him absolutely no red roses or chocolates. After 5 years we got married, our first Valentine’s Day he got me red roses and chocolates :)

  309. Jennifer Appleton says

    One year when I thought we weren’t really doing anything for Valentine’s Day, my husband surprised me with flowers! They were even in our wedding colors :) So sweet and thoughtful!

  310. rachel says

    My favorite gift was a small diamond necklace. My husband had hidden it in the glove box of our car. On the way to our valentines movie he pretended there was something wrong with the car and asked me to out the owners manual. I found the necklace instead. So cute!!

  311. Maria Wicks says

    I Love the heart locket necklace my hubby got for me last year.

    I would love to give the chocolate raspberry parfait a try, might try to make it sometime soon

  312. Jennifer says

    So far, my favorite Valentine’s Day was last year. My kids made handmade cards at school and they were so precious. Good Memories.

  313. Paige says

    One of my favorite Valentine’s was spent curled up on the sofa with my hubby, watching a movie and sharing a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. It was snowing outside, we had a fire going and it was very cozy and peaceful.

  314. christi in ma says

    my favorite Valentine’s Days are the ones when we have dinner at home and my husband cooks! steaks and chocolate mousse and prosecco in our wedding toasting glasses

  315. Mercedes says

    This Valentine’s Day I plan to send him snapshot picture clues as to what i’m going to wear when he gets home in the evening! I’m also working on a dinner menu and scratch-off coupons.

  316. Molly P says

    I cannot wait to just relax. We never go to a big fancy dinner since everything is always taken. So we just go to Panera and have soup and sandwiches.

  317. Beth Anne in PA says

    My husband does not ‘go’ for Valentines Day so I don’t have a fav gift, but maybe with this awesome giveaway, we can change his mind. :) A girl can dream, can’t she?

  318. Heidi Smith says

    My favorite part of valentines each year is the card my husband gets and he writes a sweet note inside! No plans for valentines yet. Hoping to be able to get out for dinner and a movie!

  319. SandyN says

    Love spending Valentine’s Day as a family! My kids are 14 and 12 now, so I know someday soon they’re not going to want to spend the evening together, so I’m enjoying it while I can!!!

  320. Danae Compagner says

    A pink rose.. before we were even dating.. He had written me a note saying “I’m not sure where we will end up.. but ever girl deserves to get flowers on Valentine’s day.” So sweet!

  321. Michelle LaClair-Ziembo says

    Last year I made my husband a 12 month gift, every month he opened an envelope and there was a date idea in it. He was always so excited to open the new envelope.

  322. Jennifer Auten says

    After 20 years Valentines day has become another day but this basket would sure liven it up again!

  323. Heather Braun says

    Our plans this Valentine’s Day this year are HOPEFULLY closing on our house! So I want something simple this year. Sushi, movie on the couch (of our hopefully new house), and holding hands with my man. Oh and Nana watching the baby! :)

  324. jaclyn love says

    Super excited for Valentine’s Day this year! We don’t usually do much for Valentine’s anymore (with 3 kids). This gift basket would be an awesome treat to have for a Date NIght even after the kids go to bed.

  325. says

    My favorite gift was 18 years ago. My husband gave me a wooden heart shaped puzzle box filled with tiny heart candies and a beautiful solitaire diamond engagement ring. Although he proposed on the 13th but it was the best V-day ever!!

  326. Amy McFarlane says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift is a stuffed puppy my husband gave me :) I still sleep with it every night!

  327. Marie says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gift was a beautiful necklace that my husband bought me on our first Valentine’s Day. He was so nervous that I would not like it… (honestly… it’s not really my taste), but I love him for working so hard to get it and worrying so much about whether I would like it. So sweet!

  328. Marijke says

    I love cards! To me a card means: I have been thinking of you! I cherish cards and keep some of them. Sometimes I go through them and they make me happy again!! :)

  329. Shelly T. says

    I love fresh donuts. My husband goes out early in the morning before he leaves for work and buys them for me every Valentine’s Day and they are waiting for me on the breakfast bar when I get up. :)

  330. RAchael says

    My favorite valentine’s gift was a week of no house cleaning or laundry. Rest and relaxation for a week!

  331. Terri says

    I love doing Valentine’s Day for my kids! I get them each some sort of candy and write them a love letter, telling them specifically what I love about them. I also decorate the house, and try to do a red, pink and white themed meal. :)

  332. says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day was when my husband and I were first dating. He dressed up in a suit, cooked me a lovely dinner, presented me with a dozen pink roses, and took me to the movies. We were so dressed up, that people actually laughed at us! We’re the ones laughing now…just celebrated 9 years of marriage!

  333. Rachell says

    I am due with our third baby in three weeks. Having Valentine’s Day already planned would be amazing!

  334. Nicole Marie says

    My favorite gift was the teddy bear (dog maybe?) that he got me last year. It was small, but it’s somethign I have to snuggle when he’s not there. Food/Dinner/Candy don’t last very long. this will.

  335. MaryB says

    I love Thirty Days! So many great ideas here. Thank you. And thank you for the chance to win a fun giveaway. My favorite Valentine’s Day was a special dinner out at a tiny restaurant that only served 6 couples that night. Lots of courses, delicious food, awesome night with my hubby.

  336. Chelsea says

    Best Valentines was when my husband surprised me at work with flowers, my favorite cupcakes and the sweetest card ever!!!!

  337. says

    Hi Mique! Just wanted to say hi! For valentines day, I just enjoy time with Jim…just the two of us. It doesn’t matter what we do. xoxo

  338. says

    I literally have no plans for this Valentine’s day with my boyfriend. My birthday is three days before so that’s usually my focus when it comes to plans, and he does the same. It’ll be fun to have our own little date night basket!

  339. Kimberly Knight says

    A night away from home! Staying in a hotel, even if just an hour away from home, is the best mini vacation!

  340. Kristy DeGraaf says

    I love V Day! It’s different every year. Sometimes we do dinner at home with the kids, sometimes Joey gets me roses. It’s fun to see what happens. I don’t have big expectations so when he goes all out it’s a nice surprise :)

  341. Cassandra Eastman says

    The best valentines was the first year my husband and I were married. He gave me a beautiful necklace and took me on a surprise dinner and movie date!
    I want to make the Strawberry Heart Oreos, yummy!!!

  342. Heather says

    This basket looks wonderful. I love learning new ways to spice things up a bit and to bring me and my hubby closer.

  343. Kellee P. says

    My favorite gift was a heart necklace from my husband. Mostly we just go out to eat for valentines and spend time together instead of giving gifts. :)

  344. Melissa says

    Last year was quite memorable! I spent the night at Urgent Care with my 3 year old! He had a horrible earache. Fingers crossed that this year will be better. :D

  345. Arah says

    No specific Valentines Day but when when my husband plans a date from start to finish and even get a sitter for the kids. That’s my favorite. I don’t have to do any planning :)

  346. Michelle Henning says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gift was a plaque my daughter’s had made for me in 2007, it has extreme sentimental value to me and I love it! This Valentine’s Day I am going to make my husband dessert from your website, the chocolate and raspberry parfait, his 2 favorite foods. I also want to make the reclaimed wood Valentine’s Day sign you have posted, I will have to make 3, one for me and one for each of my girls. Thank you for both posts, you made my life a little bit easier.

  347. callie b. says

    our first valentine’s my sweet husband made a shutterfly book of our favorite memories for me…it is my most treasured gift! i love it!

  348. Brenda says

    One year I got supply’s and had everyone make a Valentine’s day box (YES just like when in elementary school) We all decorated our own box and I had everyone contribute. I had cut out a bunch of different colored hearts for everyone to write nice messages and notes on. Valentine’s Night we sat around and got open them up and see at all as inside. (the kids are older and had our first grandchild and all of us were living together, blendinga new family)

  349. Ashley J says

    I love Valentines Day! All I need are some chocolate covered strawberries and Casablanca and I’m a happy girl.

  350. Lisa Kubin says

    My husband always gets me some kind of Hello Kitty gift for Valentine’s Day. I have quite a collection of Hello Kitty stuff.
    Lisa K.

  351. Shauna says

    My favorite gift was the diamond ear rings my husband purchased our 1st valentine’s as a married couple.

  352. Porsche says

    My favorite gift from V-day was our love story he wrote for me. This was one month before we got married. The second was Kate & Leopold (themovie). He gave that to me on our first V-day as a married couple.

  353. Ashley says

    My favorite Valentines memory was our first one! My boyfriend who is now my husband fixed a candlelit dinner with all my favorites. He had cut out red hearts and wrote reasons he loved me on them. I still have the hearts!!

  354. Brooke Beaves says

    I always look forward to my husband sending me flowers. But last year my teenage daughter gave me dozens of hearts she cut out & wrote the reasons why she loves me on every one. So sweet!!

  355. Cynthia B says

    a rock painted like a lady bug from my step daughter. I still have it to this day and she is 27.

  356. Marcie says

    i usually get some very pretty flowers and a nice card from my hubby. Nothing crazy, but its sweet! We could use something to spice it up this year.

  357. Jen says

    Our 12th Annie is in Feb. We love getting away without the kids. My guilty pleasure is also Channing & chocolate! Cute basket!!!

  358. says

    When my husband and I first started dating we went to the Olive Garden for Valentine’s Day and he gave me an adorable little bear that had a heart outfit on with his little head peeking out and on the heart it says, “Peek-a-boo, I Love You”…it was my first Valentine’s Day with him and my first Valentine’s Day gift from him and every year I always think of it!

  359. Melanie says

    My husband and I like to do a 14 day countdown to Valentine’s day with homemade cards, small candies, etc. This would be a fun surprise to make this year extra special!

  360. Marcella says

    We usually don’t do much for valentines day but love to make a fun dinner and dessert to enjoy with our kids

  361. Cynthia L Harvey says

    I would love to make the classroom valentines with the little vehicles. The how I roll ones are interesting it’s so hard to find good valentine ideas specific to young boys! ty

  362. Nicole says

    My favorite gift form my hub was a photo slide show set to our song, the one we did our first dance to. Made me cry.

  363. Jessica says

    LOVE this giveaway! We normally don’t spend much on Valentine’s day because it simply isn’t in our budget. This would be a wonderful surprise!

  364. Bambi Norris says

    My husband and I have been married 13 years. We usually have a special dinner together for Valentine’s Day we aren’t much for buying big gifts. We would love to have the movie you are giving away in your basket. It holds a special place in my heart because when we watched it when it first came out both of us cried. At the end my husband looked me and said “I wish I could meet you all over again, so we could experience all the magic one more time” I fell even more in love with him that moment!

  365. Shauna g says

    My most memorable gift was a care bear with a heart diamond necklace around its neck, from my husband while we were still dating

  366. Kirsten Grant says

    It turns out I am allergic to my wedding ring, I would love one I could wear…how cute would that be while renewing our vows…

  367. says

    Oh hello! You had me at mint basket! The gift that stands out to me is getting my very first dainty diamond ring from a boy… {pre-engagement} He did go on to be my bffhubby and I got the “BiG” diamond! I will never forget the moment and that ring is still a pretty heirloom now for my daughter. :) Fun Giveaway! My bffhubby & I would enjoy this!

  368. Kris Schmidt says

    My husband actually danced with me at a dinner club a few years ago (first time ever!). This year I have to work Valentines day and evening. Guess a special breakfast will have to do.

  369. Kathy E. says

    Mique, I happen to love Valentines Day too! It’s my favorite holiday. Love is in the air and spring ain’t too far away! I’ve been married to my sweetie for 30 years and we still feel like newlyweds. I love your basket!

  370. Jen Burk says

    A Tahitian Pearl necklace. My boyfriend (now husband) lived in Tahiti for a couple of years and picked one out for his “future wife.”

  371. Erin says

    My very first Valentines gift from my husband (the year we got engaged) was a beautiful star sapphire necklace. It will always be special simply because it was my first valentines gift from him.

  372. Megan says

    My husband made me a scrapbook one Valentine’s Day. It has forever been one of my all time favorite gifts!

  373. Terri C. says

    Anything at all from my husband is wonderful! We’ve been married for 24 years and I love anything he gives me.

  374. Calley Harvill says

    I can’t really remember that I’ve had an amazing V-day gift…Lol But when I was young and lived at home, my parents would always get my siblings and I a small gift, usually just candy and a card-but I thought it was cute!

  375. says

    I actually love Valentines Day more now that I have my two girls. It’s so fun decorating and finding special goodies for them. My favorite thing to do is write a message for them on a heart and put on their door so when they wake up every day (feb 1-14) they get a message from me. It’s such a small thing (pinterest idea of course!) but totally makes their day :-}

  376. Amy Hendrix says

    I plan to spend Valentines Day with my son and drive 6 hours to surprise my fiancé that night!! I’m soooo excited and can’t wait to see his face when I surprise him with dinner and gifts and the biggest hug and kisses ever : )

  377. Emily H. says

    My husband took me on a scavenger hunt one year, taking me to a lot of significant spots for us. That was my favorite!

  378. Allison Weger says

    This Valentine’s Day will be a special one as it is the first one I get to celebrate being married! :)

  379. says

    best valentine’s day gift is when someone wrote “i love you” with my favorite kind of chocolates and since i was running late from work took a picture and texted it to me so that i knew what was waiting for me at home :) it was simple but meant so much more than anything else i’ve ever gotten before

  380. meg says

    My valentine plans are to have a mini party with my daycare kids then have a pint of ben and jerrys (a tradition a group of us started in college) and a sappy movie on the couch with my dog :)

  381. says

    Mique, I visit 30 Days because I think YOU are a class act! I love your focus on Kindness and how things just feel real around here :) And I’m not saying that simply because of your giveaway here… it just gives me the prompt to let you know is all :)

  382. Sarai Cervantes says

    This year I’m hoping for a nice date night with my husband minus our 2 little ones. :)

  383. Shanna S says

    My son was in the Neonatal intensive care unit last year on valentine a day. He was born 2 months early and by God’s grace he survived! The nurses in the NICU put his hand and foot print a on two baseballs for valentines day. Loved this!!

  384. Regan Gilster says

    I LOVED the move The Vow! My husband took me to see it also on Valentine’s Day after we ate at my FAV restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory!

  385. Rachel C. says

    My favorite part of Valentine’s Day is the flowers. I love getting red roses. My husband and I have had to work or had class every single Valentine’s day we have been together, so we have yet to truly celebrate on the day. However, it seems to work for us. We go out within the week, and then there is no one else there. And then he gets me the markdown flowers. (It’s the thought that matters to me.) And I would rather the smaller price tag. And we just use it as a day to tell each other we love one another and reasons why. Something that we try to do outside of Valentine’s day as well.

  386. Debra Kay Neiman says

    I don’t often get a gift for Valentines, but My hubby did give me a sapphire and diamond ring once…my birthstone is sapphire. I wear it every day. Happy Valentines Day from Oklahoma, USA. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

  387. Amy S. says

    Valentine’s Day is one of those fun holidays to find cute things to make with or for my family!

  388. Ashley P says

    My favorite gift for Valentine’s Day is time together! He often has to work on Valentine’s Day, so when he has off, it’s like a rare treat.

  389. says

    I don’t know what our plans are this year, we have four kids, so we will probably have a family date out, and maybe an adult only date after bedtime.

  390. Janalyn H. says

    I would love to get some flowers. It has been awhile. Honestly though, I love giving gifts to my cute family more than I like getting, so I can’t wait to give them each something fun on Valentine’s Day. I agree with you it is one of my favorite holidays too!

  391. Malissa W says

    This valentines day my husband and I will be celebrating 10 years together. I had really wanted to go to Europe (we didn’t really go on a honeymoon) but sadly we just can’t afford it. So instead we are going the cheap and fun route by using hotel points to stay in a nice hotel in downtown Boston and seeing our favorite comedian Mike Birbiglia. Can’t wait! Thanks for the giveaway.

  392. Trinity Thornton says

    I am looking forward to the candies, loofah, bath crystals and mint basket! I DO LOVE THE BASKET!

  393. Debbie Robbins says

    Favorite V-day gift was diamond earrings when my hubby and I were first married! No plans this year as of yet.

  394. Melissa says

    The heart oreos would be a great gift to receive… the way to my heart is definitely my stomach!

  395. Michelle L says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was a night gown I was given the first Valentine’s Day after my son was born. My husband, of course, picked it out, but gave it to me from our son. Nineteen years later I still wear it. :)

  396. Jill McNeil says

    Every year my dad gave my sister and I a single pink rose for Valentines day despite it being his birthday! He’s in Heaven now but I will never forget this tradition and can’t wait to one day do the same for my kids!

  397. Teri says

    Those Lindor Chocolates are at the top of my list. I also like to receive a good perfume, none of that cheap stuff. Thanks for the giveaway and Happy Valentines Day!

  398. Kelly W. says

    My favorite gift was the year my then boyfriend (now hubs) bought me a McCoy Smiley Face Cookie Jar off of eBay and took it to the florist to have a tulip (my fav) arrangement made and delivered to my office. :)

  399. Calise Zollinger says

    My favorite gift was my husband, he was born on Valentine’s day, so he is the best gift. He has also given me a beautiful heart pear necklace for the big day, it is beautiful and I will treasure it as it was on our first valentine’s day together!

    • Cindy Leonard says

      I would love some essential oils! Sorry I couldn’t find where to comment…had to use ‘reply’ to post a comment.

  400. Autum says

    We never do much for valentines day but this year I’m hoping we can get out to eat and see a movie. If all else I’ll accept him doing dishes and a cheap box of chocolates. :)

  401. Olivia says

    I love valentines day! My first valentines day with my husband was last year when we made a fancy dinner and enjoyed a night just the two of us!

  402. Wendy says

    Love Valentines day It’s for all ages I love to give to my grandkids to show them I love them!

  403. Geanie says

    The best thing my husband has given me for Valentines Day, besides the many gorgeous flowers, and elegant dinners, was his undivided attention. He works a lot, and long hours, plus with 3 kids there’s not much time for talk. So, to go out for a meal, and just reconnect is perfect. Plus he watches whatever chick flick I want with me! :)

  404. Krista says

    Never gotten anything for valentines day other than from my son…this is the first valentines day with my boyfriend and I’m hoping it will be spectacular!

  405. Katie says

    I’m really excited about this Valentine’s Day, my husband and I are celebrating our first one as a married couple!

  406. Katy McKinnon says

    My favorite gift was when my missionary boyfriend (now husband) came home from his mission on valentines day. Best day ever!

  407. Nicole says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gift was from my boyfriend at the time (now husband!) who got me tickets to see my favorite group, Lady Antebellum. It was a blast!

  408. Judy Graves says

    My best Valentine, ever, was the first date with my husband in 1980. We’ve been married since March 1980 (yep, that was fast); but look at us, still in love 34 years later. MrsNat in TX

  409. says

    One year my hubby made a tiny photo album with all of my daughters photos in it after he heard me mention that I should get some photos to keep in my purse. It took him a long time to make it and I thought that was sweet.

  410. Dawn Monroe says

    My favorite gift was a tulip bulb that my granddaughter gave me because it comes back every year. I love the ” float my boat” gift idea, thanks.

  411. Wendy R. says

    Hmmm… I don’t remember the last Valentine’s gift I got from the hubs. We sorta cut out gifts when the economy went south.

  412. Melinda says

    I always love flowers, but especially love plants…I still have something growing from Valentine’s day years ago!

  413. Terri says

    My best Valentine’s present was when I received a dozen roses from my husband. He was deployed out at sea, so I totally wasn’t expecting anything. I was so surprised, I cried!

  414. Maggie Seagraves says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift is actually one I gave myself 11 years ago: a special edition yellow and pink Valentine’s Day Eeyore stuffed animal! I love him!

  415. Peyton says

    This year we will be joining a school trip out to the mountains of Idaho for a fun night of ice skating, sledding and a dinner!

  416. april says

    My favorite gift is the annual funny card that my husband gets all of our boys to sign and the pb cups that go with it. :)

  417. Mika Anderson says

    We don’t normally do a lot on V day, he usually buys me flowers and we spend the evening with the kiddos.

  418. Bridget Heiple Reich says

    Last year, my husband totally surprised me with a handmade nail polish rack that he painted purple! I totally love it! I have a bit of a nail polish obsession (especially Julep) and it already filled! :)

  419. Jasmine says

    I’d love to recieve a night off from the kids, some flowers and a nice dinner! My favorite gift I’ve recieved for Valentine’s Day was probably when I got a beautiful potted orchid.

  420. Xochitl Elizondo says

    We have 5 children so I usually celebrate for all of us at home. Since it would be very expensive for us to go out and a nice dinner, I plan and cook an amazing dinner with hearts and candles and the kids love it. It is also a surprise they never know how the table will look or what they will eat.

  421. Cami says

    My favorite Valentine’s gift was a thoughtful card from my boyfriend. It showed how much he cared.

  422. Shannon says

    My favorite was a romantic dinner with just the two of us…after having kids. We really reconnected and had a wonderful time!

  423. Katie says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gift was… hmm, I don’t know! :) My first ever gift from a boyfriend was when I was 16. He bought me a ring that had a red heart. I loved it. Until it turned my finger green. And my boyfriend broke up with me. On April Fool’s Day, no less. Valentine’s Day 2010.. I found out I was pregnant with my first son (2nd child). That would have to be on the top of the list. :) I don’t know what I would like.. but just for my husband to put effort into it.

  424. Brynn says

    Best valentines gifthas to be some furry handcuffs. They were a joke from a friend in high school but still make me giggle every time i think about them :)

  425. says

    When my husband and I were dating, he gave me tickets to rascal flatts! Best to date for sure. ;) love your blog! Love your family. ;)

  426. Danielle says

    On our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple my cute husband woke up early and drove all around the city getting me my favorite things. The items were small and mostly silly, but the thought and effort behind it was adorable and thinking about it still makes me smile!

  427. Sherilyn says

    I’m not sure what we’ll be doing this year for Valentine’s. We’re moving the day after, but I’m hoping to get something romantic put together for us. this would help! :)

  428. Mia Dentice Carey says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gift was when I got a 2 pound box of Godiva chocolate. =P

    from my hubby before we were married…he has yet to do that again =(

  429. Dawn Dibartolo says

    Fav V-Day was last year… first year married :) we went to a fancy place.. i got the traditional flowers and choc and diamond heart necklace… lol I am sure they won’t be all as “traditional” as that one! But it was a wonderful evening..

  430. Marcie says

    My favorite Valentine’s Gift is the first one my husband ever gave me. He gave me a dozen long stem red roses but he placed them all around town at special locations (my dresser in the morning, front seat of my car, my desk at my office) and with each rose he made a CD with a love song about that part of my day! It was so sweet!

  431. amber kampwerth stokes says

    well it has been a very long time since i got a v day gift i guess a red rose is the last one i remember getting, my husband does not buy me any gifts, i wish he did though it would be really nice, can always hope though i guess, thank you very much for the chance to win this nice basket, i appreciate the chance

  432. Robyn Norton says

    My favorite present was a book on how to write a Novel from my boyfriend :) I want to write more then anything, and it meant so much to me that he supports me in that.

  433. Sarah Nuttall says

    My favorite gift for Valentine’s day would have to be a surprise dinner that my husband, then finance, put together for me. My plans for Valentine’s this year? Anything where we can enjoy time together without the kids!

  434. Melissa K. says

    My favorite Valentine’s memory would have to be the tradition of my mom giving me a box of conversation hearts every year – and she still does it!

  435. sandra says

    After 50 yrs of marriage my dear husband buys me flowers, usually roses and we go out for a nice dinner!

    Thanks for this sweet Valentine give-away!

  436. Andrea Davis says

    My Favorite Valentines gift was a homemade video of photos. It was the first year my son was born and looking back over the year in photos with Jack Johnson playing in the background was enough for me to know how much I am loved by my whole family.

  437. Laura says

    We’ve never celebrated Vday before, but I feel like we need to make it special this year – no reason in particular.

  438. Nicole McNeil says

    My favorite gift though it was pretty cheesy was a bouquet of artificial roses, because he said he wanted them to last forever like his love for me.

  439. Taylor A. says

    I love the little vow sheet you made to fill out. I think that is really special! I love getting flowers and chocolate. I am a simple girl! Just knowing that my man loves me is good enough!

  440. Kelly D says

    I would like to make the pencil toppers to hand out to my kid’s classes. I always like to receive jewelry or candy.

  441. Melissa Rogers says

    Last Valentines Day, I received a set of Spiderman cards (yes, the kids kind) with bubbles. I am the biggest kid and this was perfect for me. Add the chocolate and dinner and it was beyond perfect for the simple couple that we are.

  442. Stephanie says

    I am super excited to surprise my husband with a homemade, enormously oversized Kit Kat bar!

  443. Carly Jasielum says

    My favorite Valentine’s Day gift was last year when my boyfriend got my dog a present!

  444. Stephanie C says

    I plan to have a quiet day with my husband with no electronics and just a moment of peace
