Amy’s post from Saturday really got me thinking about Valentine’s Day because it is literally right around the corner and trust me, I’m still recovering from Christmas! The good news is that we have a ton of great Valentine’s Day ideas from over the years, so whether you’re looking for ideas for drinks, gifts, crafts, or actual Valentines for the kids to take to school, we’ve got you covered.


If you missed Amy’s post on Saturday, be sure to take a look because she shared pink fashion and jewelry that is right on point right now. For example, this blush pink sweater is now 50% off with free shipping (just use our link here and coupon code NEWFAVES) and this pink color is almost universally flattering.

If you like a themed cocktail (and really, who doesn’t?), then this sweetheart martini is one to try over the next week or two.  It’s sweet and tart and just delicious!

My daughter and I have been dying to read Reese Witherspoon’s book based on Amy’s recommendation and we just received it a few days ago. I’m just a chapter or two in but I can already tell that it’s going to be a fun and easy read. The bright pink spine makes it a perfect gift to share with a friend for Valentine’s Day, too!

For a sweet craft idea, these anniversary pillows are a great way to commemorate a special couple.  It’s an easy DIY and only involves straight-line sewing.

I don’t know about you, but my Valentine is going to be on the other side of the world on February 14th, so I plan to enjoy a romantic evening with my teenager, binge-watching Netflix and eating takeout in our PJs.  That actually sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?

Thanks for stopping by~

  1. The Sweetheart Martini Recipe looks delish!
    Not-so-fun-fact about sweetheart candies this year:
    At least we can still make the martini. 🙂

  2. Heidi Colton says

    Did you hear that there will be no sweetheart candy hearts this year? How upsetting! That martini looks good . Is your husband deployed?

  3. i was disappointed that Loft would not give me the 50 percent discount on the beautiful sweater, even with your coupon code.

    • I’m sorry, too, Patty. It looks like that offer ended the day after I posted it (they don’t run those 50% off with free shipping codes for very long). Maybe keep the sweater in your cart and I will post on Facebook as soon as they offer that again!
