14 Valentine’s Day gift ideas you probably haven’t thought of!

It never seems like Christmas is out of the way for very long before we have to dip into our pockets yet again to buy a Valentine’s Day gift for our better half! The worst part is often that you’ve used up all your ideas only a month and a half before! So, before the 14th February arrives, here are 14 ideas both for him and for her. Some of them are a little more traditional, but some of them are quirky and I’m absolutely sure you’d never have thought of them!

10 Reasons why I love my husband

10 Reasons why I love my husband

Today is Valentine’s Day and it’s made me think about all the reasons why I love my husband. I think as time goes on and when the dynamics of a relationship change after you have a child, it’s quite common for couples to undervalue each other and not appreciate each other enough a lot of the time. Dave usually reads all my blog posts before they go live, he’s so supportive of my blog (and anything I do, actually). He doesn’t know that I’m writing this one though, so I guess this is kind of my way of saying “I might not always show it, but I love and appreciate you so much! Happy Valentine’s Day, darling!” I know he’ll have a huge smile when this pops up in his inbox this morning. View Post

Pressure to have a partner, pressure to have a great gift idea (not everyone likes the standard chocolate and flowers), the pressure to be romantic.
