Surprise Your Valentine Giveaway January 28 - February 3, 2014

Special days, like Valentine’s Day, can be difficult for a stay at home wife who doesn’t make money of her own to splurge on the love of her life. I know from my own experience and I’m happy to announce that I’m hosting the Surprise Your Valentine Giveaway, running from January 28th through February 3rd, 2014.

Before I get to the giveaway, I want to share some frugal ideas of how I have celebrated Valentine’s Day as a stay at home mom and then share some other ideas with you from the sponsors of this giveaway.  I hope you hop over to their post and get some free, frugal and extravagant ideas of how to surprise your Valentine, just incase you are the luck winner!

Several years ago, I started a tradition for our evening together… at home.

After I have made my husband the dinner of his choice and served him his requested dessert, we enjoy some cuddling together with the children (our other Valentines) and share what we love about each other, before we watch a movie together.

Once the children are in bed, the mood changes and I turn my focus on my Valentine!  He tends to the fire that we enjoyed with the children, being sure that it last for a while for our evening together.

Then he settles in for a once a year body massage!

I purchased a big bottle of massage oil and a palm massager.  If you have never given a body massage, you may find that learning a few useful massages could be beneficial.  Then again, if you are looking to make the evening one that will please your Valentine, you may want to skip the useful book and get a book for pleasure massages instead.

The way we spend our Valentine’s Day is more about each other and time together, then where we are and what we are buying for each other. And I love it!
