Valentine’s Day Gifts You’ll Love—and Love to Give!

Valentine’s Day is less than a month away and if you’re looking for a little something sweet for your better half, we’ve got some cute ways to make their heart beat just a little faster. Take a peek at our ideas below to get inspired for a Valentine’s Day they’ll not soon forget.

Valentine's Day Inspiration

1. Put Bliss on Display

Turn your favorite shot together into a cute photo gift. Put it out early somewhere in the house, or sneak it into their workspace the night before.

2. Stash Away Sweetness

Pick up your valentine’s favorite treats and hide them in their coat pocket with a little love note. A sweet surprise awaits! Image via themotherhuddle.com.

3. Make Love Last

Photo books are the ultimate in thoughtful gift giving. Browse loads of lovable designs and create a keepsake they’ll open again and again.

4. Say It Just Right

The perfect greeting card can convey so much more than words. Find a card that speaks their love language, from funny and romantic to something oh-so-suggestive.

5. Hit a Home Run

Baseball may be in the off-season, but hiding tickets to your honey’s favorite band, game or destination will surely hit a home run.

6. Focus on the Details

Steal your sweetie’s car and take it in for the works—a full detail and cleaning (or even a new stereo system?) will definitely make it a February 14th to remember. Image via Pinterest.

A Red and White Valentine’s Day from Beau-coup

Our wedding favors partner Beau-coup posted these gorgeous red and white Valentine’s Day images, and we couldn’t resist sharing them with you! Isn’t it perfectly lovely? For more party inspiration and wedding ideas, check out the Beau-coup blog.

Although it’s fun to play with different Valentine’s Day schemes, there is something to be said for the classic red and white palette. If you’re having a Valentine’s Day wedding, consider going with these romantic colors. Your setting can be anywhere, from a seaside party to a stately mansion or an elegant indoor venue such as a hotel ballroom.

For your decorations, you might use white linens and china, paired with bold red touches such as satin bows as place cards or napkins and lovely red bunches of flowers.

Add a dash of French je ne sais quoi by adding some stripes into the mix, or you could even tie in your love of reading by using red books as accents.

Have the men in the wedding wear red ties or quirky bow ties, and dress your bridesmaids in sophisticated red gowns. Opt for a tea length gown yourself to show off some killer red heels, and add some red lipstick to complete the look.

For your food, add some traditional Valentine’s Day fare such as heart-shaped lollipops and Valentines, or simply add some splashes of red by topping your main courses with tomatoes and red peppers and your dessert with raspberries and strawberries.
