So Valentine’s Day is TOMORROW and so many people wait until the last minute to get the perfect gifts or make the most fabulous plans and I am here to tell you that while that is not always IDEAL, it is okay and you can still pull off a very romantic, very meaningful date night. I am also going to share a few gift suggestions that are fairly easy to do last minute to make the entire Valentine’s Day date night complete.
Before the date it is always nice to have something delivered to work. In lieu of flowers I prefer Edible Arrangements. They are the perfect gift because whether you want to say “I Love You,” “Happy Valentine’s Day,” or even “Just Because”, you can’t go wrong with fresh fruit and gourmet chocolate! I am pretty sure that chocolate is the way to most girl’s hearts! lol Check out their fun gifting ideas on their website.
Another thing you can NEVER go wrong with is giving the gift of fragrance. A perfume that I just smelled for the first time is Dolce by Dolce & Gabanna. It is a gorgeous fragrance with a floral, feminine mix that blends the freshness of Neroli with the opulence of White Amaryllis for a flirty, yet sophisticated scent. | Notes: Neroli, Water Lilly, Narcissus, Papaya Flower, White Amaryllis |
If you aren’t quite sure of which scent you wanted to give, a gift card is the way to go! Perfumania is the one-stop destination for fragrance. Hundreds of brands ranging from classic designer fragrances, to the newest trends, there’s a scent for everyone. Their team of fragrance experts will help you discover your next signature scent. From now until Valentine’s Day you can recieve 25% off AND free shipping by using my code MYNEWAD25!!! So a fun idea is to give a gift card and then pick out the fragrance during your date that night so you can still take advantage of the discount code! Last minute gift AND savings! #BOOM
Jewelry can be hard to get your hands on last minute for Valentine’s Day but a timepiece may be somewhat easier. Casio’s G-SHOCK S Series timepieces are created for the influential, fashion-forward woman that seeks a sportswear-inspired toughness to add to her modern style. The Casio G-SHOCK S Series GMA-S110CM-2A is the ideal gift for that special someone on your Valentine’s Day list that values advanced technology and precision time-keeping in a versatile fashion accessory. It also goes really well with the whole “athleisure” trend that is happening right now.
Moving onto the actual date night idea now.
An art night for two. For the last few years it has been trendy to do a wine and paint night at a studio with a big group of people where everyone is recreating a painting the person leading the group has done and broken into steps, but who says you can’t do that in the comfort of your own home on a date night. I personally love the idea.
It wouldn’t take much to set it all up and the thoughtfulness of the date night will win you points FOR SURE. For the past couple of years I have been using various Faber Castell art supplies and everything I have used is of the highest quality.
Castell 9000® graphite pencil quality and finely graduated degrees of hardness have made it a firm favorite with artists and illustrators. Its lead is fully bonded with the wood, making it break-resistant. These pencils have an environmentally safe water-based coating and are available in 16 degrees of hardness for writing, drawing and sketching.
PITT® Artist Pens offer odorless, permanent, waterproof, lightfast inks in 60 vibrant colors and a variety of nibs. Contains the highest quality India ink for unsurpassed lightfastness that also will not bleed through most paper, including Bible pages. Great for everything from Professional Artists to coloring books!
Gelatos® are super pigmented, acid-free sticks of color that can be used in your Mixed Media art projects. They glide on smooth for vibrant color and blend easily with or without water and can be used on any porous surface. Available in 68 colors including NEW Iridescents and Highlighter colors!
Go to your local craft/art supplies store. Grab yourself some canvas and these supplies from Faber Castell and set it up. I promise that your date will be super surprised and impressed.
While you are getting your art making skills on make sure to have snacks. Wine and chocolate is always going to fit the bill. Sunsweet Dark Chocolate PlumSweets are perfect to have sitting in little dishes beside your work stations. Easy to grab a handful and snack while you create. There is a downloadable coupon for $1.00 off one 6oz bag of PlumSweets HERE!
