When it comes to Valentine’s Day, Ryan and I like to keep things pretty low key. We’re all about budget-friendly romantic gestures and tend to shy away from super fancy dinners and overpriced gifts on February 14.
You guys know by now how much I love assembling a good gift basket. I’ve previously shared gift basket ideas to celebrate everything from a bachelorette party to a couples’ engagement and this year I figured I’d turn my gift basket love toward Valentine’s Day!
As new parents, Ryan and I don’t really have the desire to try to find a babysitter on Valentine’s Day. For those of you who might be in a similar boat, a cozy night at home might sound awfully appealing, but why not kick things up a notch and make a night in together a little more special with a Date Night In gift basket?
Assembling this Date Night In gift basket was a lot of fun! I wanted to be sure to include essentials for a delicious dinner (helloooo pizza!) and some sweet treats for dessert, but I also made sure to throw in a bottle of wine, a movie and some cozy new pajamas!
For this particular gift basket, I included his and hers pajamas. Victoria’s Secret reached out to me to share a little bit about their cute Valentine’s Day pajama sets and I couldn’t resist including a pair of them in the gift basket along with a comfy pair of flannel pajama pants for Ryan.
I picked out two pairs of Valentine’s Day cozies and selected The Mayfair Teejama, a classic tee and lightweight pajama bottom set, and a pair of cheetah-print thermal pjs. (These do not appear to be online, but I found them in-store last weekend.) Both came with matching eye masks that I thought were way too cute! I’ve been wearing Victoria’s Secret pajamas for years, so I had no doubt these would be just as soft and comfortable as my previous pairs. Just in case you want to snag a cute pair of their pjs (or something a little sassier!) for yourself, Victoria’s Secret is offering $15 Off $100, $25 Off $150 and $50 off $250 with the code SPRING2016.
Here’s a roundup of everything I included in the gift basket:
The gift basket is easy to customize for your loved one! Throw in their favorite bottle of their favorite wine or a bag of their favorite candy. Add in a new album from their favorite band. Include a bottle of lotion with the promise of a massage.
