Valentines Day will be upon us before we know it. Yes, we just got through the major December's holidays and the start of the new year. But, the clock will not stop. There are no breaks. In a little over a month, it will be here whether we are ready or not.
“In the eighteenth century, historians tell us, 'valentinage,' from which Valentine's Day was derived, allowed wives in northern France to make love, on a few days each year and with the knowledge of their husbands, with a 'valentine' of their choosing.”
― Pascal Bruckner, The Paradox of Love
Now, times have certainly changed! 200 years later Valentines Day is a major event for some. You may not consider it a major holiday, but even if it's not a "big deal" to you, it is a day you want to be prepared for ahead of time. No last minutes shopping for this, the holiday of love. Try running to Target after work on the 13th and it will show.
In light of this, I have taken some time to gather some of the best gifts for women trending this year. Some are very pretty - like the clover necklace. Some are special treats - like the luxurious gifts sets. Some are very useful - like the crock pot (it's an awesome crock pot!) Some are unique - like the handmade flower preserver. And, some are just fun - like the teddy bear.
