Smile File 2/13/2011- Valentine’s Day gift ideas

I love Valentine’s Day. Call it a hallmark holiday if you’d like but to me there’s something so wonderful about having a day all about expressing love for special people in your life. I geek out on Valentine’s Day, I get stuff for my mamcita, my aunt, my bro, my friends and of course my bf…p.s. so excited about his gift this year!

So here are some Valentine’s Day ideas for your beau, your friend, your mom, your dad, your whoever…make someone feel special.

I swear this list is not a cheese fest! I really think Valentine’s Day is more about being thoughtful.

Green gift!!! My bf gave me a whole bunch of tees that don’t fit him…some are old concert tees and some say smarty things like “Ithaca is Gorges”…these would make great totes!! Annnnd the project is NO SEW, since my sewing machine is out of order at the moment I find this a very appealing option! Find instructions here.

This suggestion is from Oh joy!, she picked out some great things for her beau, check out her post here, but what really fits MY man is this chips of the month gift, lol.
