9 Last Minute Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Today is Valentine's Day and you meant to pick up a card for your sweetheart but...

Okay, don't worry, we've got this covered.  Here are 9 last minute Valentine's Day gift ideas sure to wow your valentine.

1.  Deliver a bouquet of flowers.  Not knocking floral delivery service but Valentine's Day is one of the busiest delivery days and there's no real guarantee your flowers will arrive on time so save your cash and pick up a bouquet and drop them off to your valentine.  

2.  Good chocolate.  It's Valentine's Day so splurge on the good chocolate.  Your sweetie probably doesn't want a big box of sweets so choose 3 pieces of their favorite chocolate.  1 for them, 1 for you and 1 to share. 

3.  Heart themed coffee mug.  Fill the mug with a few candies or better yet, fill with a couple of packets of hot chocolate or a couple of K-cups.

4.  Dinner at Home.  Nothing like a home cooked meal of your sweetheart's favorites.  

5.  A really nice card.  Don't splurge on the card.  Choose a card your valentine will remember for days to come.  Hallmark always has some amazing cards and this year they launched the More to Love Valentines Day cards with vinyl records.  
It's a real vinyl 45 record and perfect for music lovers.  I fell in love with the card featuring the INXS record.  The 80's music lover me knew my valentine would love the "Need You Tonight" and "Never Tear Us Apart" song selections.  

6.  Print one of those fab photos from your phone.  My Valentine and I have this one pic we snapped while on vacation last year.  It's my favorite pic of us and I finally printed it using the FreePrints app.  I get up to 1,000 free 4x6 prints each year of my favorite prints from my phone and the shipping is always affordable.  Or stop by your local Kodak Kiosk and print an 8x10 from your phone.  Check Walgreens online as they often feature freebie codes for a free 8x10 on Valentine's Day.

7.  Chocolate Dipped Strawberries.  Find the biggest, brightest strawberries you can find, melt some chocolate in the microwave, dip the strawberries, chill and serve.  Easy breezy.

8.  Bake a Cake.  In a large bowl, combine a 12 oz. can of your favorite soda and a box of cake mix.  Bake according to directions on cake mix box.  Add your favorite frosting and tada, you've got dessert.  If your valentine is cutting back on calories, use angel food cake mix and diet soda for a guilt free treat.

9.  Make a Playlist of your favorite songs and share with your valentine.  I have Pandora and I created a playlist of songs celebrating my 20+ years with my sweetie.  Our wedding song.  That one song he sings that makes me laugh.  The song from our first concert together.  My favorite back in the day jam.  Each song reminds me of something about my sweetie.

There you have it, 9 last minute Valentine's Day gift ideas sure to wow!

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…

Super Stocking Stuffer Giveaway Hop

Merry ALMOST Christmas!   Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?   I'm just about finished.  I have a couple of gifts to buy still but the majority of my shopping is done.  
Used my Swagbucks to earn gift cards for all my favorite stores.  I Stocked up on a few tech gifts for the kids from Best Buy.  Shoe Carnival had some cute boots on sale for $19.99.  JC Penneys also had some stylish boots on sale plus I had a $10 off coupon which I just had to use.  After my coupon I ended up spending a whopping $4 on a stylish pair of boots. Talk about savings. Cha-ching.
There was one thing on my list that I didn't get. *insert sad face*  I really wanted the Lego Women of NASA set.  I glanced at it, thought about adding it to my Amazon shopping cart and didn't.  The next day I woke up to see it go from $24.99 to nearly $100. *kicks rocks*  

So when I saw Target was offering "12 Days of Socks" box sets, I knew I had to have one.  

Each set retails for $15 and contains 12 pa…
