Valentine's Day Gift Ideas and GIVEAWAY

Valentine's Day is coming in the next few weeks and I'm ready to celebrate and share some love! I have compiled a list of unique and fun gift ideas for all your Valentines PLUS....I've put together a great prize pack full of goodies just for you! This giveaway ends soon so don't miss out!





I love Sock Grams! What's a sock gram? Well, it's a pair of socks and a personalized card that you can send to anyone! They have hundreds of styles to choose from, they last longer than flowers or chocolates and they are so much fun to send and receive! They also come with a packet of organic foot balm tucked inside the socks. I absolutely love the foot balm! It's perfect for this time of the year! Please visit www.sockgrams.com for more information!
















Kidz Bop just released Kidz Bop 15, including some of the greatest songs of today that kids love! Haley loves all of the Kidz Bop CD's. They make a perfect gift for kids! Another fun thing is that kids can now download a sing-a-long version of "Let It Rock" and create their own karaoke video at www.kidzbop.com. Their website offers videos, music, games and contests for kids too! Kidz Bop CD's are available for purchase at major retailers. Please visit http://kidzbop.com/ to check out all the fun activities for kids!










Make your purchases count with Greenheart! Greenheart is Chicago's premier eco-fair trade non-profit store, carrying both fair trade and eco friendly products. They offer unique and contemporary products that you can feel good about buying.

Greenheart adheres to seven principles commonly accepted by the fair trade community that outline the central facets of fair trade:
Producers receive fair wages for their goods and labor, working conditions are safe, producers and wholesalers develop long-lasting relationships, producers have access to credit and technical assistance, environmentally friendly practices are encouraged, equal employment opportunities for all, and practices are completely transparent, accountable and democratic.

All American Mommy has been very impressed and pleased with the quality and craftsmanship of Greenheart products and I also love what they stand for! Greenheart offers something for everyone and they can help you design a lovely gift basket to fit your budget. Please visit http://greenheartshop.org/ for more information!

I have the distinct pleasure of spending Valentine's day at school this year. I have a Saturday morning class & will be studying some yucky disease.

Hopefully hubby & I can do something that evening.

I usually spend my St. Valentine's day with my husband and my dog Tony. My husband and I go aout to dinner at IHOP to "celebrate" the day we met (which was St. Valentine's day). The day we met we wento to an IHOP for coffee. That was almost 19 years ago. What better way to celebrate than to "re-enact" our first coffee together. After that we go home and give our pooch a special treat.

May Canadians enter? I plan on spending Valentines Day as a quiet day at home (although if the weather is right we might go skiing).

Shel said...

Luckily, Valentine's Day falls on a weekend this year. Since this is also my birthday month, we're planning an overnight trip to the casino with hotel stay. Normally it's just dinner and a movie, but I convinced hubby to unleash the purse strings and splurge a bit this year. I'm pretty sure we won't come home winners (we've never won once) but we'll have a great time anyway.

We plan to have a quiet night in and maybe rent a movie. It costs too much to go out and eat and pay a babysitter!

gahome2mom said...

My nights are not so quiet since I have a toddler. lol I plan on spending it with my family. The girls and I usually hang out and watch a romantic movie unless NCIS or Eleventh Hour is on TV. We eat a snack together. Who knows maybe this year we will go out to Aqua Linda's as a family. Depends on if my dh is out of town or not for work. Thank. I know... blah blah blah...

Linda said...

Every year we celebrate with 6 other couples for a Valentine's Day dinner. Usually my husband and I spend a nice quiet evening at home with a special dinner and we do the friends dinner thing on an alternate night. It so happens that V-Day is on a Saturday this year, so we have planned a dinner at a nice restaurant and have a room for our group all to ourselves! I have posted on my blog about this and my email is Linspj@aol.com

Shelley K. said...

I will spend V-day with my hubby :) He is my best friend (how great is that?? It is really hard to "plan" anything out due to my illness but I will be happy to just spend time with him.

My husband and I aren't celebrating this year. We have had an awful year financially ( who hasn't, though?..) so we're just not doing presents for any holidays this year. I have a family, which is what I wanted most anyway. I'm sure the novelty of that will wear off eventually, but for right now, I'm completely satisified! lol. I would love to share these goodies with some single gal friends of mine who have had a really tough year.

Jennifer said...

We will be going out to dinner and to a comedy club and then getting a motel room! A night with not one of our 4 kids! I'm very excited!

We will be spending Valentines at home having a nice meal and a good time.

judybrittle said...

We will just stay at home and having a nice meal. Thank you!

VannyBean said...

We'll put our girls to bed and have a nice dinner with a glass of wine (& hopefully something with chocolate). Our girls are little, so this is the best option for us--simple, affordable & something special.

Anya said...

I plan to go fabric shopping with my friends!

Elizabeth said...

This year my hubby and I are going out the week before Valentine's day. The kids are going to Grandma's for the weekend and on Saturday I'm going to a friend's house where we are all making sweets and doing an exchange. That night my hubby and I are going to go to dinner and come home and have our sweets together.

Karin said...

Watch a romantic comedy--sip on wine....

dolls123 said...

I'll let the kids decide what we will do that day

Beth said...

My husband and I will probably go out for dinner. I don't really care where as long as we get to be together! What a nice giveaway - thanks!

A Family Completed... said...

My daughter's birthday is on that Friday so Saturday we will have a party for here and later either rent a movie or go to a family movie. Not the most romantic but I wouldn't have it any other way. I like to spent my heart day with ALL the people who share my heart and Love.

Jackie said...

I'll make a nice dinner for the family, decorate the table, buy small gifts for everyone and make a special dessert. After dinner, my teen daughters will probably go out, and my husband, who is in a band will have to leave to play a gig. It didn't hit me until just now, but I guess I'll be home alone on Valentine's night. Maybe I'll get a movie and enjoy the quiet. Thanks for a nice giveaway!

Julie said...

Great giveaway...we'll probably just keep it quite. It's too crazy to try to go out. Probably fix something at home.

Julie said...

I twittered your contest :)

Lissa said...

I will be treating myself & my family to a morning treat: fresh baked bagels & cream cheese! Hopefully someone will bring me chocolates, so I can enjoy them later, along with a late night movie.

getrichquick said...

Your Valentine Giveaway sounds fantastic. I think the sock gram is very fun and unqiue. My wife would especially love them because her feet are always so cold. As for Valentine's Day, www.thegenderdefenders.com are in town and I'm trying to score some affordable tickets to surprise my wife. We love to spend time together and laugh. Hope you have an unforgettable Valentine in 2009. Thank you.

one6ylady said...

My anniversary is 2/12, and my Anniversary gift for my hubby is 2 tickets to a NHL Hockey game on 2/14/09, so I plan to take let him sleep in, then him out for a steak dinner, then spend Valentines evening at a hockey game LOVING all the cross-checks and screaming for our team to win until we have no voices left. Sunday is his day to spoil me, and I have no idea what he has planned.

Melanie said...

my hubs and I plan on spending it together doing a basic date night. I would love to do something different though like go to a coffee shop and listen to some live music or something like that

I start the day with making heart shaped pancakes for the family. Then I am off to the schools to help out with their Valentine's Day party. Then I make dinner and watch a movie together. With our financial funds being low no way to go out for dinner but we are together and share the day with love

If I could get rid of my kids I will be doing a Gourmet Delight, which is from Intimate Issues.
It is a romantic dinner throughout the house, each part of the meal is in a different room and comes with "rules" of what touching is allowed at that part of the meal, lol.
If not, we'll be watching movies with the kids.
