Inside: A free Valentine printable that makes the perfect gift. The Nuts About You printable tag is great for someone who has it all.
Available as an instant download, preparing your Valentine’s gift this year couldn’t be easier.
Yes I know Christmas has only just passed and now we are already talking about Valentine’s Day. That’s just how it goes though isn’t it.
Maybe that’s why the year rolls by so quickly. It feels like as soon as one event has finished the new one is just about to start.
But roll with the punches we must. Otherwise all that will happen is we end up in a mad panic feeling totally unprepared for the occasion.
Valentine’s day can easily be one of those occasions that creeps up on you out of no-where, and leave you frantically looking for a gift.
The Two Types of Valentine’s Day Gifts
It seems there is a lot of hype on the lead up to Valentine’s day for showering the one you love with the perfect gift. It’s almost like the bigger the gift you receive the more you are loved. Call me crazy, but am I the only one that feels this?
I think that Valentine’s gifts can be broken into two categories. These are;
- The all expensive gift including theater tickets, flash jewelry, nights away in hotels etc
- The small token of appreciation and love with a small but fun gift, such as using a Valentine printable.
My husband and I always opt for number 2!
Yes, I absolutely don’t deny that number 1 would be lovely. I would be more than happy to receive a lavish gift, and I certainly wouldn’t refuse it. However, with so many other things happening throughout the year, we don’t want to justify the expense of a gift “just because”.
We certainly don’t ignore the day either.
We we always like to plan a bit of a special dinner in the evening when the kids have gone to bed. But as far as gift giving is concerned, we make sure that this gift is a simple small little token of love.
How A Valentine Printable Can Make The Perfect Gift
In the past for Valentine’s day, my husband has received several printable gifts. He has received a pack of beer with printable labels. Then there was the year that he received the wine, also with a Valentine printable attached.
Despite these being relatively cheap gifts, he absolutely loved them.
The addition of the Valentine printable made all the difference.
Last year I stayed with the printable theme (he is kind of getting used to it now) and I gave him a bag of nuts. Yes of course this included a cute Valentine printable attached.
This gift certainly didn’t break the bank, but it was absolutely enjoyed when snuggling on the couch after dinner. And of course he showed his appreciation of love to me by sharing the chocolate covered ones with me…..my favorite!
I wasn’t organised enough to share this Valentine printable with you last year, but I have it for you now. You can download for FREE from the printable library.
I also do like to keep his Valentine’s gift a surprise too, so splashing it all over the blog before he has been given it, might give it away slightly. So stay tuned for what he will be receiving this year!
I gave the gift of just the bag of nuts, but if you wanted to bulk it out a bit, then it would look fantastic in a hamper basket with maybe the beer and wine included.
But otherwise, even as a stand alone gift, it is a pretty good one. Hubby certainly enjoyed it.
How To Use The Valentine Printable
1. The first thing you need to do is head to the free printable library and download the “Nuts About You” printable. You will find it located under the Valentine’s Printable’s heading.
2. I recommend printing onto a matte photo paper as it provides a nice quality finish.
3. Purchase a bag of nuts, and then attach the Valentine printable with double sided sticky tape.
That’s it, your done!
It’s a super simple, low budget and stress free Valentine’s gift. Sounds pretty good right?
