@Sugarfina – The first step to creating the perfect Valentine’s Day is securing the sweet treats, and Sugarfina is the absolute best for all of your sugar cravings. Whatever your significant other prefers…they have it. We love Sugarfina because they source high-quality ingredients from all over the world to ensure their candies are topnotch. Aside from their regular flavors and packaging, they also offer adorable Valentine’s packaging. A few of our favorites include their Champagne Bears “Cheers to Us,” Martini Olive Almonds “Olive You,” and Parisian “I Pine For You”. You can also design a candy bento box or even create a custom candy gift!

Planoly’s Guide to Valentine’s Day - Planoly Blog - A Beautiful Mess

@abeautifulmess – Homemade gifts can be daunting at first, but with a DIY blog/Instagram as good as A Beautiful Mess, you have no reason to worry. Make something that your significant other will use! We love the idea of making homemade beeswax candles, which can be scented with natural essential oils and put it in any container! Embroidered phrase kitchen towels can also be an adorable option. Put a funny inside joke on them and display them for all to see! Another fabulous gift idea is to create infused bath salts and give your love the gift of relaxation. Scroll through their Instagram or blog for even more amazing DIY ideas.

In the meantime, you can check out their Instagram for all of your card inspiration. Find a lovely card at your local paper store, spill your heart out and celebrate love! Even if you’re not in a dating relationship, galpals need love too. Write your bestie a heartwarming note and let them know how much they mean to you. Kind words are never wasted.

Planoly’s Guide to Valentine’s Day - Planoly Blog - The Modern Proper

@themodernproper – Going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day is overrated. Avoid the crowds and cook your love something special at home. We’re obsessed with The Modern Proper’s Instagram and blog because of their fantastic selection of recipes! They also have the most amazing photos —and good food photography is our weakness! For Valentine’s dinner, we suggest cooking their Salami, Jalapeno & Olive Pizza and the Dark Chocolate Firecracter tart for dessert. They also have a delightful array of cocktail recipes so a homemade Pimm’s Cup would be perfect to wash everything down! Money can’t buy that kind of meal made with love.

There you have it! Valentine’s Day isn’t so stressful after all. The most important thing to remember is to keep it personal and thoughtful. Planning ahead takes away the pressure as well. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
