We keep seeing this lovely chart and get inspired every time. @yeseengel, we loved your simple version and added on an extra bar to encourage not actually buying anything tangible. The biggest bar on the chart for us is now, "experience" and we are proud to pass it along as a reminder for what Valentine's Day should be all about....expressing and showing your love.
We suggest establishing a tradition with your loved one, making breakfast in bed for him or her, make the time for a tea or hot chocolate together, go out for a heart-shaped pizza.
MAKE something for your loved one. A handmade card, a frame with a photo of you inside, affix a heart to a votive, create art for them.
But we understand...sometimes it's nice to show someone your love with a tangible gift. If you do...show them how much they mean to you by giving them a gift that's either made in the USA, has zero impact on the environment or is fair-trade.
