We are obsessed with MomMeMatch’s off-the-cuff comment on their Facebook page >> “If there was such a thing as Valentine’s Day stocking stuffers, these Valentine’s Day bracelets and key rings would be perfect!” So we started searching and searching and searching some more. We cannot find anything that even remotely resembles Christmas Stockings for Valentine’s Day. But we did find some lovely examples of Valentine’s Day mantel decorations. We love red pillar candles combined with vases of pink tulips and red roses.

How the game is played…
The game is fun, because each person gets to select a wrapped gift, unwrap it and then possibly lose it to someone else and have to select again. Being able to select from unwrapped gifts or “steal” a gift someone is holding is what makes this game so much fun. Continue Reading →
