When you think about Valentines Day you are often faced with the usual pink or fluffy tack that lines many high street stores and you think ‘this is all just over commercialised rubbish isn’t it?’ WELL.. although I firmly believe in trying to live by your means and attempt a frugal lifestyle, i also believe in love. I believe that couples, especially those with children, do not spend enough quality time with each other expressing their emotions, or even having the time to express them. Valentines Day for me, is a gentle nudge to get back to basics and spend some time with your partner, just rekindling that spark that gets oh so very lost in our daily humdrum lives; and Uncommon Goods can help you do just that… with no tack in sight!
So Valentines Day is fast approaching and finding the right gift to show you care can be an irritating task; so here at Rock and Roses Mama I have collated a few ideas of both amazing (and some delicious) gifts AND more frugal ways of saying ‘I Love You’.
So I know there are a lot of you out there who don’t buy in to the whole ‘Valentines Day’ thing, and I have to agree that it is far too commercialised, red and plastic heart orientated; but there is some good that can come of its celebration. Love. And free chocolates of course! Now what I also know, is that you should show love and appreciation all year through; however what is the harm in having a day where you get the prerogative to just spoil yourself and your other half with some well earned adoration? Maybe you are trying to impress someone you are not yet in a relationship with, but are simply admiring. If your parents then it is vital to spend time as a couple, getting back to basics; Valentines Day provides a non excusable opportunity to reignite the spark! So if you need some inspiration… here is my favourite things to do and gift in my ONE… and ONLY (not now Chesney…) Rockin’ Valentines Guide.
