Ideas for Valentine’s Day Gifts!

I always have a difficult time coming up with a great Valentine’s Day gift for Bob the Builder.

Since Valentine’s Day is only five days after Bob the Builder and I get back from our belated honeymoon, I’ve already started planning his gift. My first idea was an oldie but a goody. In fact, it’s kind of a cheat, because I got him this same gift two years ago. But he loved it, so I should get it again, right? I mean, he LOVED IT.

Tastykake I Love You gift tin

This was my perfect plan, you guys. I went to the Tastykake site, ready to click and purchase, and guess what? THEY DON’T SELL ONLINE ANYMORE. No more gift tins, no more mail order. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

 Well, shit.

I can still buy Tastykakes on Amazon.


Tastykake Mail order

Tastykake Chocolate Cupcakes – Four Family Packs

But there’s no fancy tin, which was the really cool part. Just a box of packaged baked goods? I mean, Bob the Builder would still love them (and eat them!), but I think I can do better.

I found some other super cute gifts on the internets. Planning a wedding is stressful and expensive, so let’s not break the bank on one holiday, yes? These gifts range from $7 – $77! Woo Hoo!

For The Reader

I Like You gift for Valentine's Day

 I Like You

This is a super cute book that I have given as a gift to both Bob the Builder and CraftyPants. I just love it. It’s illustrated in the style of Maurice Sendak, and the text is adorable. Here’s a bit: “I like you because / when I tell you something special / you know it’s special / and you remember it for a long time / You say / remember when I told you something special / and both of us remember” Awwww…I just love this book. It’s only $6.25 on Amazon. Go get it!

 For The Sleeper

I love sleep. I also love pillows. I also love to hoard all the pillows on my side of the bed and sleep with my head in a mountain of fluff. If I got Bob the Builder this pillowcase set, he would always be able to re-claim his pillow. And, it’s hilarious.

For the Hipster

Bob the Builder is SO NOT a hipster, but I thought it was worth mentioning that ModCloth has A LOT of Valentine’s Day prezzies for the hipster man in your life.

    You married Bob the Builder? I married a man I call “Mike Holmes.” Haha. Smartest thing I ever did. We have two toddlers in the house now, so Valentine’s Day is for them two. Lots of heart-shaped things all day – pancakes, cookies, stickers, cut-outs….but I always make chocolate cover strawberries for my sweetie.

      I meant “them, too,” of course.
