FUN DATE NIGHT GIFTS IDEAS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

The first couple years of our relationship, Trent and I only did experiential gifts for Valentine’s Day.

Growing up, I wasn’t thrilled to have my birthday on December 25th and sometimes had summer parties at my “½ birthday” instead since everyone was so busy during the holiday season.
