As Valentines Day is once again upon us, ensure you are making the holiday celebration a special & meaningful one – despite the cliche heart-shaped boxes of chocolates and red roses.

A wonderful tradition to begin is the celebration of little luxuries, and I find it a particularly wonderful fit for Valentines Day as it is the little things in life that we should be celebrating anyways!

Set a little budget, whether it be $25, $50 or $100 and come up with the most special, meaningful, luxurious little thing you can to give to your sweetheart. Make sure it is something you would NEVER ordinarily spend that kind of money on so it is truly a luxury – even it if your budget is only $10 – imagine how creative you can get! And make sure it revolves around some small little detail in life to ensure it’s as meaningful as it can be!

Whether it’s a chunk of gourmet chocolate, a tiny bottle of fancy perfume, or even an apron, enjoy the tradition of gift giving.
