Fashion & Beauty
Valentine's Day is just a day away, and whether you're spending it with your significant other or your friends, we've got some fun, sexy, and easy ideas to make this day of love, well, quite lovely!
Custom Candy Box
Buying a box of candy can be kind of complicated because you want to make sure you get exactly what the person wants, and there are just way too many options to choose just one. But what if you can't decide what to get and they like EVERYTHING? No worries: you can make your own custom candy box. All you need is a divided craft box (can purchase at Michael's or a craft store), some decorations (can purchase from Dollar Tree), and your recipient's favorite candies (Target & Dollar Tree). Add it all to the various sections of the craft box, and here you have a custom candy creation. Super easy and thoughtful.
DIY Body Scrub
Body scrubs are good for anyone on your list, but they are particularly special if you're giving them to your girlfriends (hello Galentine's Day!) We've found a great recipe for a Strawberry and/or Vanilla Extract Sugar Scrub that is super sweet on your skin and smells amazing. Grab a cup of brown or cane sugar, mix in about 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil, and add in a tbsp of strawberry extract or vanilla extract. Mix together and put in a self-decorated storage container of your choice. Double the recipe to make a large batch for all of your friends!
Breakfast Over Dinner
Switching it up on Valentine's Day can be both fun and cost effective. Instead of going out to dinner with the hundreds of other people who are out, change your plans and dine in. Create your own Valentine's Day Breakfast or Brunch...but make it special. You can do heart shaped pancakes using cookie cutters and cotton candy mimosas (or cotton candy mocktails) to get in the spirit of love. Not only is this crowd-free, but your loved one will appreciate the extra effort you put in to make this special meal.
Read & Write About Your Love
Books and journals are a great way to showcase your feelings, especially if you're not the verbal type. Hey There Hot Stuff ($7.99 - Target) has cute sayings that will make your significant other blush, while 642 Things About You (That I Love) ($8.99 - Target) is a more personalized expression to your S.O. in which you answer the book's pre-written questions about your relationship. This is a gift that doesn't expire after the holiday has passed!
Spice up your romance year-round with these Love Coupons ($6.99 - Target)! This is a great way to extend your Valentine's Day gift from now through December. Not only are these thoughtful, but they also keep the spontaneity going and add some extra spice to your relationship!
