Sweet Valentines and an Etsy Giveaway


1371_Valentine-AffiliatesBanner-300x250-R1-4February 14th is just around the corner, y’all! Do you celebrate? No?  After this post you might start.  I’ve never been a big fan of celebrating Valentine’s Day myself but last year Alex and I had a lovely dinner at home, which consisted of a craft paper table runner and homemade pizza with heart-shaped pepperoni. It was amazeballs!

Valentines Day 2013We didn’t get one another anything, and we never do, but that didn’t stop me from browsing Etsy for some of their amazing handmade goods!  You know I have big love for Etsy and I put together a Valentine’s gift guide.  You’re sure to find something your other half loves (or something you love… because ain’t nothin’ wrong with a little gift to yourself).  Here we go… get ready for awesomeness!

Just so you know, all images are linked to their respective Etsy stores, and they are affiliate links, so if you happen to fall in love with one and purchase it, you also get to contribute to The Learner Observer.  YAY!

    I feel like I *should* want to win so I can get my hubby (whom I love mind, body and soul, OBVIOUSLY) a really nice V-day gift. But actually? I *really* want to win so I can get me some of those pencils. Because I’m a nerd… but a cheerful one :)

    Great giveaway – and an awesome list of gift ideas! Keeping my fingers crossed!

    Great picks! We usually have a low key Valentine’s Day too… I must admit I love all the pink & red cuteness that abounds this time of year more than the romantic pressures of the holiday.

      Thanks so much, Marisa! Low-key is always nicer in my books. I, too, just looooove all the pink and red around this time of year!

    Celebrating by having pepperoni pizza. I can achieve that! But without a table runner and probably in my bed, because, come on, it’s semester break and I hardly leave it anyway… ;)

    Some of you etsy finds are gorgeous and I would buy them even for me! And, how cute is that “rings & things” holder?! <3

    Love, Midsommarflicka

      HAHA I love it! Might as well enjoy that cozy bed as much as you can!

      I would totally want some of these for myself too!
