My Valentine Delivered….
I was so happy to receive a dozen roses from my Valentine! Roses are timeless, ageless, and so romantic….And, he didn’t stop there…he brought me a cake (yummy vegan chocolate) declaring his love.
Here are a few unique gift suggestions for the Valentine on your list:
For the first time in the US, you can now get Pistachio Liqueur from Dumante. According to Marty’s Fine Wines http://www.martysfinewine.com/ this delectable liqueur is made from the finest Sicilian pistachios. Marty says, “It’s delicately sweet and subtle,” and, comes in an attractive bottle perfect for gift-giving.
I would also like to suggest making your own cards for Valentine’s Day, or special occasion. You might not think you have time, but, it’s easier than you think. Whenever you see a picture that catches your fancy in a magazine, or a catalog, or one that reminds you of someone, cut it out and put it in a plastic bag or file. Next time you go shopping pick up some blank paper cards. They come in bunches at craft stores and such. Then, all you need is a glue stick and a colored pen or two. Over the years I have given many memorable cards this way. People seem to appreciate the effort, the creativity, and a tailor-made greeting especially for them. Granted, even though making your own cards is pretty simple, sometimes I don’t even have time to answer the phone or open the mail. But, when I do give a homemade card people notice. Give it a try… If Aunty can do it, so can you…
