Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays.  I'm a romantic.  I love "love".  I give gifts to not only the love of my life, but to my son, my best friend, and friends at work.  Valentine's Day is one of those holidays you can cheese up and have tons of fun with.  Every year I make little candy bags with Valentine's cards for my co-workers.  Nothing fancy or expensive, just cute little gifts like you gave in grade school.  I really get into spreading "love" all around!

This year I wanted to do something extra special for my best friend.  She's a full time student getting her Nurse Practitioners license, while working as a nurse too.  This leaves little time for her and her fiance to spend quality time together.  So for Valentine's Day this year, I've created a date night gift basket for her.

I took off to Target to pick up the goodies for my basket.  Instead of a traditional "basket" I went with a tote bag because she loves tote bags and I know she'll get lots of use out of it.  I wanted to create a fun date night where they could spend the evening baking together, then enjoying a movie with special popcorn I made.

K-Y® Love: the star of the show!

No Valentine's Day date night is complete without passion!  I wanted to make sure that they have a romantic night together.  As adults we tend to get all caught up in work, laundry, studies, the kids, etc and sometimes intimacy gets put on the back burner.  Intimacy brings the closeness that glues a relationship together.  It's very important!

K-Y® Love is exclusive to Target for Valentine's Day!  How neat is that?  I included both the Sensuality & Passion in my basket.  You can find them in the feminine care section of Target.  Using Target Cartwheel you can get 10% off K-Y® Love from 2/1/15-2/14/15.  I love using Target Cartwheel!  I pull it up on my phone as I enter the store every time!

For the Valentine's Day themed popcorn you'll need popped corn, candy coated chocolates in Valentine colors, and red cinnamon candy.  Mix them all together in a bowl.  I then put it in an air tight baggie and placed the baggie into the movie popcorn container seam side down.

Now they've got an adorable Valentine's Day movie night snack to go along with their heart shaped cookies they'll be making!  Add in the cinnamon scented candle, lights down low, turn on the string heart lights, pour some drinks... date night will be perfect!  I truly hope they have the best Valentine's Day ever!

Do you go all out for Valentine's Day too?
