 Say what you will about Valentine's Day, but who doesn't like to be spoiled with gifts by the ones they love? Whether it's baking a special treat, creating an adorable card, or buying that certain someone a cool new gift that they wouldn't splurge on themselves, Valentine's Day is the perfect time to buy the one you love a gift. This Valentine's day think beyond the traditional Valentine's Day gifts of flowers and candy and buy a special gift that has a focus on self-care. 

There is nothing wrong with the gift of flowers or candy but some ladies or guys may not like them for gifts, due to special diets or allergies. There is also the fact that flowers and candy gifts are not unique Valentine's gifts. So a gift of a self-care item simply earns you bonus points as you took the time to shop for a gift that was unique and special. 

 I made a list of gifts that I would love to give to my husband. These are also gifts that I would want to receive for Valentine's Day. Many of the gifts can be enjoyed together as a couple. The gifts can be wrapped up by themselves or combined together in a Valentine's Day gift basket. You could even pair the gifts from my Valentine's day roundup with other gifts like flowers or candy. 

Spread the love with these perfect Valentine's Gifts 

1. Photo Gifts

 Personalize your sweetheart’s gifts with a wide assortment of cute gifting options that you created using your favorite memories and photos. Mpix has a wide variety of photo gifts from personalized blankets to adorable key chains. My favorite photo gifts that are on my list of Valentine's Day gift ideas are coffee mugs, luggage tags, and soft throw blankets. Mpix also offers other photo gifts like photo books, Valentine's Day cards, coasters, wall art, and so much more. You have to look at their list of photo gifts as I am sure you will have that special photo or two that will make the perfect gift for Valentine's Day.

  I had fun creating a personalized photo blanket with a watermelon pattern. I also designed a photo mug with a picture of fireworks that I had from the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta last year. These fun photo gift tags will be perfect for my many travel trips this year. I also created a mug with my grandbabies photos. Aren't they adorable?

 I was even able to personalize my blanket from Mpix. The watermelon print was many of several designs to select from. Mpix allows you to design your gift with your selected photos. You can use their templates or create your own. I was amazed at the huge selection of prints and designs. It was so simple to download my photos and create these fun gifts.

Wrapped in edible paper, all bars are non-GMO, USDA certified organic, and free from nuts, gluten, soy, and dairy. You won’t find artificial flavors, preservatives, or refined sugar either. Kids will love the edible paper wrapping (especially picky eaters) with different cute dinosaurs on each flavor. What’s in them? Just 10 healthy all-natural ingredients - fruits, oats, hemp hearts, coconut oil - and a mess-free coating that parents will love. It’s the ultimate snack for kids.

The Dino Bars were amazing. At first, I was not sure about eating the paper coating that was on the fruit bars. So I peeled the edible paper off the bar and tried it. The paper had a sweet taste but I could not get beyond that it was paper. So I was glad that I could peel the paper off the bar and eat it separately. The Dino fruit bars were so delicious and so sweet. I loved all the healthy ingredients in the bars.
