So Valentine’s Day isn’t until tomorrow, but since I post Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, today will be the finale of my Valentine series of blog posts. 

So far I’ve posted all about everything you need for Valentine’s Day, from outfitsmakeup, to even gifts. “So what else is there, Emma?” you ask? 

Well, a thought that occurred to me this year that never even crossed my mind any other year was how some people once had a Valentine everyday, and then never had them again. I think it was when I was packing up an order to ship. At our store, you can leave a special message from the sender to the buyer, that we hand write. This note was along the lines of: “Happy Valentine’s Day. Dad would’ve wanted you to enjoy these.” 

This kind of hit me in the stomach. I never thought about how sometimes people lose their Valentine. So this year, my valentine and I decided to put together some valentines for others. 

We got some sugar cookies, chocolate covered pretzels, fun dip, and just a few other things to make an assortment of candy. We made up some really nice baskets to bring to a local nursing home, for the people that have unfortunately lost their lifelong valentine. 

This was a real rewarding thing for us to do. It didn’t cost us much. It was something we got to do together, and brought a lot of fun and happiness. 

I just wanted to share this to inspire others to think about someone in your life who might be a little lonely this year. And together we can help let everyone know that they’re loved. 

A few good places to start are

  • Nursing homes
  • Police families
  • Military families
  • Teachers
  • Aunts or uncles
  • Friends who had a bad breakup
  • Hospitals

Valentine’s Day is a day full of love. Spread a little more than usual, and you will receive a whole lot in return. Thanks for reading.
