Sure, the conversation hearts are fun and the boxes of decadent chocolate are tradition, but these days the Valentine aisle is so cramed with candy it resembles Halloween (except it’s pinker). If the family dentist gets enough money from you already, check out these sweet, non-sugary Valentine’s Day gift ideas. Because there are ways to show people you love them that don’t involve a diabetic coma.
These conversation heart pillows ($25) will last a lot longer than the real thing. Plus, they’re cuter, too. They come as a set of six so you can divide them up between dad and the kids.
Just add some sunshine, water, and a little love to this can of Dahlias ($12) and you’ll have a beautiful bouquet in no time. You can also get geraniums, pansies and impatiens, so treat each kids to his/her own bloom.
This one’s just for you and dad. After the kids are asleep, show him just how you are sweet on him with warm bath bubbling with this luxurious Philosophy Bubble Bath ($16).
