Valentine Gifts for Him

02112013 valforhim Valentine Gifts for Him

Valentine’s Day is almost here, but are you still wondering what to get the men in your life? Well, whether it’s your true love, your best bud, or that guy you’ve had your eye on, we’ve got some great ideas:

Heartfelt:  Of course he knows you love him, but reminding him is important, too.

  • Romantic Hidden Messages: Stay close to his heart by putting a little love note in his collar or tie. Or, you can fill your bedroom (his car or office will work, too) with red balloons, but first write little messages about what you love about him, or favorite memories and put them inside each of the balloons.
  • Coupon Books: Get even more intimate with a coupon book filled with love — you can buy one or make it on your own. Just use your imagination.

Flirty: Some gifts are perfect, whether you’ve been together a long time or are in that “what if?” stage.

  • Custom Bouquets: And, no it’s not about the flowers.  There are liquor and cigar bouquets, and even roses made out of rolled bacon–yep,what guy doesn’t love bacon!  This idea also works for male friends and relatives, too– try turning their favorite tools—from brushes to screwdrivers—into a manly arrangement.
  • Homemade Fortune Cookies: It’s a tasty way to customize your wishes–make them innocent, inspiring, or downright risqué.

Fun, Fun, Fun: These ideas can be tailor-made for all the great guys in your life and are sure to create lots of happiness, laughter and love!

  •  Lottery Cards:  Whether the receiver is your dad or your husband, he’ll have fun reading the personalized prizes beneath the silver scratch-offs.
  • Singing TelegramThink outside the box and surprise him with a personalized song or poem performed by any number of star attractions such as cupid, the goddess of love or perhaps, a pink gorilla.

Finally, don’t forget to include a card. After all, Valentine’s Day is all about love—all types—so let those great guys know just how you feel about them!

Vintage Valentines

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and it just may have you thinking about love. We’ve been coming up with different ways to say “I love you,” since what seems like the beginning of time – which got us thinking about all the ways we’ve seen love expressed in greeting cards throughout history. So we did a little digging and found some amazing cards dating all the way back to the 40s. We also came across cards from the 50s and 60s. From elaborate cut-out designs to retro and adorable characters – styles and language may have changed, but one thing always remains…the love!

This blog post features one design from the 40’s, but we thought it would be fun to display more of what we found on our Pinterest page where you can see all the designs on a special board titled, Vintage Valentine’s Day.”  Didn’t know we had a Pinterest page? Well, now you do and it’s the perfect place to visit to see our newest cards, birthday party theme ideas, special projects and all our blog moodboards!

It’s a Valentine’s Day Party!

020412 vday party Its a Valentines Day Party!

Thinking about throwing a Valentine’s Day party? You probably have a million ideas, but it’s best to start with a theme. Are you having this party for kids or adults? Do you want it to be sophisticated or silly? We have a few favorite themes you just might be able to draw inspiration from…

Chocoholics Unite!

This type of Valentine’s Day party can be fun and carefree, and of course, covered in chocolate. Instead of focusing all on love, focus on something a little more sweet – like desserts! Explain to your guests that this is a dessert-only party, so they may want to eat dinner ahead of time – but make sure they save room for sweets! A fun way to get everyone involved is to have them each bring their favorite dessert. Make tasting tables and you can even have a contest for “Richest Dessert,” “Most creative star ingredient,” and “Overall all Chocolate Champion!”

A single mingle!

Don’t have a plus one this Valentine’s Day? No big deal – especially for this party. Encourage everyone you invite to bring a coworker or another single friend and spend the day everybody hates to be alone – together! Hang out over good food and even better conversation. Need décor ideas? We say ditch the traditional Valentine’s Day red and pink hearts, and go for bright fun colors like Kelly Green, Cobalt Blue and Bright Orange

Love is in the air…

Ok, this one is for the lovers – the people who love Valentine’s Day, pass out candy at work and sign their name with a little  XOXO…  We get it, Valentine’s Day is the one time of year when you let everyone you love know that you’re thinking about them. Go ahead and deck this party out in all the shades of reds and pinksyou can find. Get crafty with DIY projects and bake all kinds of sweet treats! Encourage your guests to wear red and play trivia games about famous couples throughout history!
