How to Spend Valentine’s Day

by

Love is in the air! Can you feel it? Whether or not you’re in a relationship, Valentine’s Day is a holiday for every one of us. While there are so many ways to celebrate the occasion, here are the top date and gift ideas so no matter who your Valentine happens to be, you’ll be looking forward to the 14th this year.

Your SO
The Date:

Dinner is a must, but restaurants are way overrated, not to mention way overcrowded for this occasion. Instead opt for a night in where you cook for your love, or maybe even prepare your meal together over some good conversation and a bottle of wine. Plus, when you’re already at home it’s much easier to transition into the Netflix and Chill part of the evening.

The Gift:
I’m not usually a fan of super cheesy but on VDay, I usually make an exception. When it comes to what to gift your Valentine, make sure it’s something that will remind them of you each time they see it. For example, these puzzle piece necklaces for two are so freaking adorable, not to mention absolutely ideal for this type of occasion. It’s a great reminder how perfectly you fit together and can even be engraved with coordinated messages to make them super special.

Your Friend
The Date:
What could be yummier than a brunch date for you and your Galentine? In true Leslie Knope fashion we encourage you to plan the ultimate waffle breakfast or brunch party to celebrate all your exceptional gal pals who make life all the better.

The Gift:
Remember when best-friend necklaces were all the rage? Good news is they’re totally back in style, and if that’s not exciting enough on its own, gifting one of these Share & Pair Rafiki Bracelets from ME to WE can actually make a difference to someone in need! Handmade with love by a woman in Kenya, every Rafiki purchase gives one of five life-changing impacts in a developing community, and these ones give health!

Yourself
The Date:
Self-love should never be put on the backburner, and especially not on Valentine’s Day. After all, you’re the most important person in your world, so don’t you forget it! If you’re solo this year, pick your favourite activity and make a day (or night) of it. When it comes to making yourself happy, you’re the only real expert.

The Gift:
There are literally a million different gift options to spoil yourself with, but since we’re all about gifting with intention around here I’m gonna suggest something a little off the cuff. Have you ever considered buying yourself an embroidered plush animal? Because if not, you definitely should!  Stuffed animals were once our greatest comfort and the amazing thing is their magical properties never go away, no matter how old we get. Embroider yours with a personal message to yourself to make it the ultimate self-gift!  

Which Rose Is Your Valentine?

by

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, it really is the thought that counts. But have you stopped to consider what thought your gift is actually conveying to its recipient? Because let’s face it, not all gifts are created equal, and more importantly, they’re not meant to be.

Every gift shares a different feeling. Take our silver-plated roses for example. You might say it doesn’t matter which rose you choose, because in the end, it’s the same gift – a rose that lasts. But that’s actually not true! Our silver-plated roses come in three distinct colours, and each has its own distinct meaning and message to share with your Valentine.

Red Rose
The ultimate symbol of everlasting love, our red silver-plated roses are for romantic couples to express their devotion and commitment to one another.

White Rose
Signifying purity and innocence, the white silver-plated rose is a gift to share with family members or children on this day that celebrates all types of love.

Pink Rose
If you’re a fan of Galentine’s Day, this one’s for you! The pink silver-plated rose is a perfect gesture of friendship for all your sisters from other misters.

The gift you give is only as good as the meaning behind it. So this Valentine’s Day, I encourage you all to be intentional about how you show your love to others.

P.S. All silver-plated roses are currently on sale for $19.99!
You can also buy two for $29.99 with promo code LOVEME2X or three for $39.99 with promo code LOVEME3X
