Valentine Gift Ideas For Family And Friends

January 26, 2018
Good Morning and welcome to a little post on one of my favorite times of the year and do you know why? Well it is because it's almost Valentine's Day! A day to celebrate kindness, care, and love to ourselves and others. Today I am sharing a variety of shops and Valentine gift ideas for family and friends. I do love all of the whimsy, color, playful and goodwill nature of this time of the year. Oh and maybe you'll find a little something for you too!

I have shared shopping links and ideas on the blog before. Many of you really liked it, so if you do or if you don't I'd really appreciate you leaving a comment or dropping me an email with your thoughts.

Today you will recognize some of the shops; some are new, one is mine and one of them is my most favorite Candy shop in the entire world! It also just happens to be in my hometown of Rexburg Idaho! (Go Bobcats!) You see I am already feeling the whimsy of the season!

Florence's candy shop is family owned and operated and our family favorite is the haystack!

Valentine's Day can be a challenging time for singles, especially after a painful divorce. If you or someone close to you needs to know the fairy tale isn't over, consider this inspirational book by Cecilia Lynne. When the Glass Slipper Shatters: Recreate Your Fairy Tale After Divorce offers hope and encouragement to create the best version of happily ever after for families struggling after divorce. Chapters feature journal prompts, scriptural references and practical resources. The book is available on Amazon as well this free reading app for any device,

    What a wonderful round up of gifts for Valentine's day. I love Laura's t-shirt, "Do the mashed potato." You have to love her sense of humor pairing that t-shirt, a wooden cooking spoon, and her lovely apron.


  16. Jemma, I love this! Debra at Common Ground used to have a weekly link party with folks who sold online, and they could link to her party. Then, she would feature one or two the week following. I found some great new shopping venues that way. Even though I don't sell online, I love this idea. I hope you continue it! Okay, now gotta go....armchair shopping. :)

You are dear, and deserve all the goodness that life brings you.
