I really don’t care about San Valentine’s, for me is cheesy, there’s hearts everywhere, people wear read on February 14th, couples feel obligated to be romantic and spend money of gifts or dates. I know it’s an excuse to show that you care, but for me is just another day. My husband and I don’t give each other gifts on San Valentine’s, he used to give me flowers but I don’t think he’s done it in a few years, but he’s very good at giving me gifts just because, so no complaints.
But don’t take me wrong I do celebrate San Valentine’s Day with my kids, this year since we’re in New York City I’m planning on taking them to lunch to a nice place as my dates since my husband won’t be with us that day and I got them a $10 gift card for Game Stop, which always makes them very happy. I think it’s important to show children the importance of LOVE and to care about someone else.
As I said I don’t get my husband a San Valentine’s Day gift but I’m not the majority, in 2017 Americans will spend $18.2 Billion Dollars in San valentine’s gifts, 90% of people in a relationship will buy a gift and the average spending amount will be around $140
But if you don’t want to break your wallet here are some ideas less than $100! That I found in JCPenney.
- For the man in your life, how about a Men’s Custom Valet Box, $80
- For a sister or a girlfriend the “I Love You Because Chalkboard Sign, $20
My favorite is the WallPops Large Chalk Message Board Decal ($50) I have it over my desk and I decided to use it as my calendar, I love it!
- Also for the hubby, boyfriend or Lover, I love the Maxwell and WilliamsTM Sensations 3-pc. Wine Decanter and Glass Set, $140 ($79.99 sale)
- And for the popcorn lover or the kids, the Nostalgia Electrics Coca-Cola® Series Mini Hot Air Popcorn Popper, $30 and Carnival Popcorn Bucket Serving Set, $43
