Hi friends! Winston here. I’m ready to help you hit a home run this Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re planning an extra-special date or hosting a party for your kids, SampleHouse has everything you need to make this Valentine’s Day absolutely perfect.
If you’re the celebrate-at-home type, there’s plenty you can do to make this Valentine’s Day the best one yet for your special someone. Start with a few romantic scented candles from Trapp, Tyler Candle Company and Voluspa to make the house smell like fresh-cut tuberose, a field of clean cotton or a mountain of strawberries and cream. You can find most of our favorite scents in the form of oil diffusers and wax melts for a fire-free experience, perfect for an evening in with your favorite person — or your favorite tail-wagger. Candles also make a great gift for your Valentine or anyone on your list, including your kids’ teachers, your office pals and your veterinarian’s office! Trust me, they love a good candle.
Once you’ve got your gift nailed down, it’s time to wrap it! Now this I can’t help you with, because I don’t have thumbs. But I can tell you that the gift wrapping wall at SampleHouse has everything you need to make your presentation pop. Gift bags, sparkly bows, matching tissue paper and themed bags and boxes — we have it all! I’m partial to the crinkly tissue paper, but that’s just because I like the way it sounds when I tear it up.
Now it’s time to get cooking. Making dinner for your valentine is a surefire way to express your love. If you’re planning to pull off a romantic dinner for two, stop by SampleHouse to pick up a cookbook. We have books with plenty of recipes for fun finger foods, fancy three-course meals, and even just some new twists on old favorites. Bonus: Offer to clean up, and you’ll cement your place in the Valentine’s Day victory hall of fame.
Stealing some quality time on Valentine’s Day can be tough when you’ve got kids. If you’re planning a romantic evening out with your valentine, we have plenty of ways to help the babysitter keep the little ones distracted for the night. Coloring books are a great option for older kids, especially since there’s a coloring book for just about everything these days. For little kids, I have my eyes on a few toys that would definitely keep me distracted, so I know they’ll work for your little one too!
I hope this helps you ace Valentine’s Day this year. If you don’t even know where to start, just come see me or any of the holiday experts at SampleHouse and we’ll help you cross off that to-do list in no time. Happy Valentine’s Day friends!
