Valentine’s Day Personalised

Valentine's Day Personalised Header

Beginning of January, the shops were overflowing with ‘Back to School’ images and advertising. Images of pens, crayons and books line the shelves.  Then the pens make way for pink and red with images of chocolate and hearts.  Yes, it is nearly Valentine’s Day –   again.  The commercialized day of Love.

The one day a year that the retail stores and media tell us to spoil, surprise and pamper our partner.  A commercialized romance day.  Not  my favorite day.  However, I think with all the hype and expectations that are created by advertising around Valentine’s Day, a very important message is lost.  In all the busyness of life, work, kids and goals, we sometimes forget to stand still and really appreciate our partner standing next to us.

I know it is true for my relationship.  John travels a lot and when he returns, there are so many things that need to happen.  Maintenance around the house, time with the little one, catching up with family and friends, groceries…  An endless list of domestic things that needs to happen in the short space of the time that he is home.  We get lost in the domesticated life and fail to stop and appreciated each other.

Simply appreciating your partner once a year is not really enough to sustain a long term relationship.  You need to stand still frequently to appreciated the other person.    However, it helps if you have  something to remind you, to take the time and look across the room to the other half of the partnership. 

And that is where my Valentine’s Day Personalised list comes in.  When Netflorist (you know I love them when John travels and misses important days) sent me their Valentine’s Day catalogue, I was so surprised with the increase in the number of  personalized items.  Beautiful every day items with a special message on. 

What better way to be reminded about how much someone loves you, when you see that special message on an item you use frequently.  It becomes Valentine’s Day Personalised every day. Herewith my top personalised items from Netflorist that will put a smile on John’s (and my) face.

  1. Wow!! That’s way more stuff from when I was last on there! Very cool. #lekkerlinky

  2. My husband works in the wine industry so I’m not brave enough to give him wine as a gift! but it often means I’m on the receiving end of a gorgeous bottle of bubbles. We’re not big on Valentine’s Day but we do date night once a month to stay connected.
    I wouldn’t mind that crate of chocolates though, let’s be honest!


  3. Forgot to add #lekkerlinky x_x

  4. We aren’t too big on Valentines, although this makes me want to get into the spirit. Thanks for the awesome ideas!

  5. That’s so true Jeannette, love should be celebrated everyday of the year so I’m quickly going to go give my hubby a hug and remind him how much he means to me and I’ll be back shortly to get some of that Red Rock Pilsner. The hubby is a big fan of craft beer #LekkerLinky

  8. A Personalised Love of My Life Chocolate Box? Um , yes please! 😁😋
    We don’t do Valentines Day; I much prefer being spoilt with gifts and surprises by my guy all year round. I do love these gift ideas though, and I don’t think anyone would mind receiving them at any time, not just 14 Feb. #LekkerLinky
