Valentine’s Day, Come and Gone

When I think of Valentine’s Day, the first things that immediately come to mind are candy, flowers, and stuffed animals, but people get much more creative with their gifts on this special holiday, especially now in 2017.

According to Readers Digest, these are some of the best gifts to buy your special someone on Valentine’s Day:

  1. Candles
  2. Puzzles
  3. Earrings
  4. Mittens or Gloves
  5. Bamboo hearts
  6. Couple’s Pillows
  7. Desserts
  8. Personalized Wallet Inserts
  9. Phone Cases
  10. Personalized Notes


Even though these may be among some of the more creative gifts, heart-shaped candies and chocolates still saturate my hungry mind when I think of Valentine’s Day. Since Valentine’s Day disappears as quickly as it comes, the candy stores slash their prices overnight, and with Easter right around the corner, stores are eager to clear their shelves of Valentine’s candy and restock with Easter goodies.

Not only can you get great deals on the Valentine’s Day candy, but you can also stock up and use your leftover candy for Easter and other holidays. Personally, the candy is the best part of any holiday, so I always take advantage of the sales.
