I love to celebrate Valentine’s Day as a celebration of my family. We usually get something small for the girls and just spend the night in at home together watching movies. I headed into Walmart earlier this week to find just the right gifts and a couple movies to complete our day.
The very first thing I saw walking into my local Walmart was the Valentine’s Day section! It’s so easy to find what I want when its all right there in one easy location. There were a few aisles filled with everything from Candy to Roses and everything in between that you might want to give for Valentine’s Day. There are even $1-$3 items that are classroom favourites.
I headed over to the stuffed animals first as I knew I wanted to get one each for the girls. I immediately noticed a certain little guy just looking at me and knew I had to get him and a friend, which was incredibly affordable to do at only $7 each!
I did have to stop and think twice about the puppies though once I saw the Olaf and the Hello Kitty gift sets, especially at those amazing prices. In the end though, cute little puppy dog eyes won out.
Next on my list was something for Anthony and I was seriously so tem[ted by all the chocolates. Don’t they look amazing? I grabbed Anthony’s favourite Chocolate plus two blu-ray movies (at only 7.97 each!) I found Crazy Stupid Love and Legends of the Fall. Oh man Legends of the Fall, what a classic!
My Valentine’s Day was made even better at the check out when all this rang in at less than $50! My family is going to be happy, I’m going to be happy with a little Brad Pitt in my day and my wallet is going to be very happy that this was all done without breaking the bank!
