Are you Valentine’s Day ready?
At Darcy & Grey we are happily waving goodbye to January and all its blues. We welcome February with open arms and Spring is just a month away!
February, the month that is synonymous with love, hearts, roses, chocolates & cards, with the perfect excuse to shop, (not that we need one). At Darcy & Grey, we have pulled together some Valentine inspired items that lean toward pink and heart-shaped items. With love in the air, why not treat a gal pal or someone special in your life with a gift from our gift ideas or send on this link to your significant other-half, if you want to put him out of his misery and make his shopping experience for YOU easy.
Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Will you mark the occasion or hide under a big duvet until the day passes? In our house, with little people, celebrating Valentine’s Day takes on a whole new meaning. Homemade cards are presented and enveloped with uneven printed words and graphics of stick people holding crooked hearts in blue pen, lol. Romantic dinners with bubbles are a distant memory. Secretly, I love the fact that my husband gives me the same card he bought a number of years ago and sticks a 'post it' in it with a funny sentiment, he thinks it’s hilarious! What started as a joke now has become a tradition, the card is still in the cellophane wrapping. So we don’t really celebrate the day in the traditional way.
However, I do buy a gift for my Mum, it’s an opportunity to show her my love and appreciation and this small gesture means a lot to her. Valentine’s day doesn’t have to be lovey-dovey and gushy and gooey, it can be used to celebrate the love for someone special that’s unromantically associated that might not be communicated on a daily basis. So why not treat a loved one with a gift from Darcy & Grey.
Through the centuries Valentine’s Day is cloaked in history from saints named Valentine, pagan celebrations and birds begin mating at the start of February. Today, we are living in a generation that sends an estimated one billion (minus my husband’s recycled card) Valentine’s Day cards each year, with women accounting for the purchasing of 85%. We are a romantic bunch thanks to Esther A Howland who began selling the first mass-produced valentines in America. So however or with whoever, you decide to celebrate the day be prepared with our gift list.
