Tempting Tuesday-Valentine Love


Only 7 more days for you to get that one gift that tells your loved one just how much you love them. Need some help finding that a special gift? Here are some I’d like cupid to deliver to me.

Getting lucky just got easier with Get Lucky Dice from the Red Envelope.
This set of pewter dice is inscribed with action words, body parts and parts of speech. Take turns rolling the dice and acting out the various commands such as "brush lips against back." Includes one wild-card body part best left to the imagination. $39.95

Nothing says love like a Gift Card
May not seem romantic but to a reader or music lover this is the best gift in the world.
Can be purchased in any increment and sent by mail or digital delivery. Right now Amazon is offering a free gift box AND free on day delivery.

Slip into something slinky from Josie Natori.
I’m a huge fan of Josie Natori and right now you can get some of her wonderful lingerie from Target at super low prices. The camisole and tap pants set above is only $12.48.

Tempt your love with chocolate from Godiva.
This Valentine’s Day Satin Heart is a rose-embellished keepsake box that opens to a  hand-picked selection of chocolates from legendary Belgian classics to seasonal Milk Chocolate Mousse and White Chocolate Passion Fruit truffles. You can also get this in a 40 pc and a 15 pc set. $75.00

Don’t have a lot of money? Never fear. Sometimes the best gifts of all come from the heart.

Lace covered votives are easy to make and give off quite the romantic glow.
All you need are glass candle holders, candles, and some paper lace dollies. Cut dollies, glue to holders and volia!

Give a bouquet of love.
Skip overpriced store-bought bouquets, and follow these simple steps to personalize a valentine nosegay. Gather two or three stems in your hand (compact blooms like roses and ranunculus work best); add flowers one by one until you reach the size you want. Wrap a rubber band around the stems to hold — though not crush — them; trim stems. Tie with a ribbon, wrapping it completely around stems, then doubling back to tie a bow. The larger the bouquet, the wider the ribbon should be; usually 1 to 2 1/2 inches works best.
Bake some love in each bite.
Homemade confections say, "I love you...a lot." Use any recipe to create some yummy goodies Then, nestle the goodies in an empty clear plastic six- or 12-egg carton, cutting out the inner plastic flap and cushioning treats with mini-cupcake liners. Add a valentine note under the lid using double-sided tape, and wrap with festive ribbon.

What Valentine goodies are you looking for or giving to your loved ones this year?
