hey there fellow newlyweds!
with the ever so big Hallmark holiday around the corner, I can’t help but wonder what I’m supposed to do for hubby. we are not usually into vday or sweetest day — but I got him godiva choco covered strawberries and a cheesy card for this past sweetest since it was our first, as husband and wife.
Per the same thoughts, this valentine’s day will be the first we celebrate as a married couple. But I’m blank out of ideas on what to get or do for him! We’ve spent so many bdays, Christmases, vdays, etc. together that I can’t think of anything I haven’t already gifted him.
Do you bees have any creative ideas?
I’m on a budget and would like to be more thoughtful that $$$ful. 🙂
thanks for the help bees!

I need ideas too! I feel like Christmas was just a few weeks ago and I have no clue what to get him :/

I bought him some homemade caramels from Etsy. He’s been talking about these damn caramels his coworker keeps bringing in so I thought I’d pick some up for him.

Fiance isn’t a hubby, YET, but I’m going to burn him a “mixtape” (obviously it’ll be a CD). It’ll include a lot of different songs that remind me of us or make me think of him. I’m going to have a little letter to go along with it. I will explain the songs and what specifically they make me think of when I hear them.
For instance, “Rain is a Good Thing” by Luke Bryan makes me think of our engagement because he was singing it the entire day on the day he proposed! 🙂
Last year a friend gave her Fiance a huge canister of 365 Hershey Kisses. She wrote on the outside of the container “A Kiss for everyday of the year”. It was really cute. However, since ya’ll already live together idk that that’d be helpful! Lol

We usually don’t spend money on gifts, rather spend money on time together. Some things we have done are: fancy dinner, snowboarding, hike, or a day trip. That way we are spending some extra time with each other.

I ordered a set of three canvas paintings that are actually made into frames from Etsy. The paintings run into each other so you hang them on the wall in a row. I’m having our wedding pictures put in them. It was $75 but you can also order a single painting/frame for $35.

I went to the craft store, picked up some scrapbook paper, and made a card for him and wrote a really sweet note. The card came out super cute, and my SO keeps things like that, so I know he isn’t just going to throw all my hard work in the trash! I also bought him some slippers b/c his feet are always cold.

My Mother-In-Law is coming to visit for our first Valentines Day, so I don’t know that we’ll do anything that day. I’m actually being a pouty monkey about it, but it was the cheapest ticket she could find. Plus, I told her to come whenever she could.

@Moose1209: Can you please share which seller on etsy this is from? Thanks.

I am giving Fiance a “boys weekend” for V-day. He has been trying to get together with his two best friends for the past 2 years, yet none of them have any sort of organization skills. So, I called his two besties and got everything set up – I am so excited to give him this gift!!
(The boyz weekend won’t be over Feb 12, it is set up for a weekend in early April.)

We make cards for each other, and grab some take out food and head to the drive in..we might spend 25 dollars tops!

@stephinPA: Sure! The seller’s name is emily013. I haven’t received the paintings yet (should get them next week) so I can’t give a real review but so far she has been really great to work with. I sent her the three pics I want and then also a picture of one of our centerpieces so she could get an idea of the colors I wanted in order to customize the painting. If I’m happy with them I’m also going to order a single one for my dad’s birthday with a picture of us doing our father/daughter dance.

Boudoir pics of moi, a plant he asked for (he didn’t know I was already getting something and he kept hinting about how much he wanted it so now I have to get him two presents!) and a homemade card.

I usually do a homemade card and then we’ll have a special dinner together. Beyond that, I’m not sure yet….
