My Perfect Valentine's Day, PLUS My Can't Miss Gift Guide

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. I love all things pink, anything with hearts on it, flowers, and of course chocolate, so how could I not love this day? When you become a parent though, Valentine's Day becomes less of a romantic holiday and more about just love and family. At least for me anyway. 
My perfect Valentine's Day would be spent with my husband and my daughter. It would begin with the hubbie's homemade waffles, gluten free, of course, and then a lovely lunch al fresco, with plenty of mimosas! We don't like to go out for dinner usually on Valentine's, because literally EVERYONE else in the world is out, and it's always super crazy. The introvert in me can't handle crowds. To me there's nothing at all romantic about a loud, crowded restaurant. Normally we would cook a great dinner at home that night. 
This year Valentine's coincides with Nevada Ballet Theatre's production of Cinderella, so that is where we will be, and I am SOOO excited! If you're a Vegas local and still looking for gift ideas, tickets for Cinderella can be purchased here, or at the Smith Center box office. Nevada Ballet never disappoints, so it's sure to be a fabulous production! If you're still looking for other last minute gift ideas, I've got you covered!  
For the ladies, Adore Me has the most amazing lingerie styles at great prices, no matter what look you prefer. I've linked to a couple of lingerie looks I love, and some other cute gift ideas below.




If you want to go a different direction, or need something for your guy, give your special someone a membership to the Swarm, Locust Cider's Cider Club. They'll be able to enjoy some amazing hard cider, while contributing to an amazing organization, The Hydrocephalus Association. Check out Locust's website for their story and to read more on the club and their cause. 

I couldn't leave the kiddos out of this little gift roundup, since for me Valentine's Day is about family. Any of these trinkets will make your little ones smile.


I'm looking forward to a fun filled Valentine's weekend, but I want to hear from you! How's your ideal Valentine's Day spent?
