My kind of V-day celebration: A trip to the tattoo parlor.
Valentine’s Day is a holiday I tend to skip over – or at least forget about until the very last second. When gifts are involved, though, I’m OK with them being a bit traditional – perfume, pajamas, that kind of thing. But I also realllllly don’t like giving (or receiving) gifts that won’t actually be used. It makes me anxious.
Last year, around Valentine’s Day, Kendrick and I were going through a rough patch, and so I put in more effort than I think I’ve ever put into a gift in my life: I made him one of those personalized “The Story of Us” books, and it ended up being something we both pick up every once in awhile, when we need a reminder of what it is we’re doing here. (And it doesn’t have to be cheesy at all; I’ll do an IG story later on today showing you a few pages of the one I made for K in case you want to make one and could use some ideas.)
If you’d like something equally lovely – but perhaps less labor-intensive – below are a few of my favorite ideas.
