  1. LOVE this idea Gina. We don’t do Valentines Day because it’s our wedding anniversary around the same time, but I might just steal this idea as have been drawing a blank for anniversary gifts this year 😉

    1. It’s hard when special celebrations all seem to come at the same time. Hope you have a lovely weding anniversary and please do steal it 🙂
