Valentine's Day Gift on a Budget

My Valentine's day gift to Hubby.  He can't have sweets, our trip was canceled, and I came up with this.  I purchased a small photo album, and have printed photos of him with me or just me, and I'm using scrap paper and stickers to decorate every other page.  I'll be writing personal notes on them as well.  I hope he likes it.

I love your Valentine's gift to hubby. Another economical gift is coupons like, "good for one shoulder rub," "good for one great piece of home made chocolate cake" etc. I use to have the kids make these in my daycare, not with those sayings, of course, but with appropriate ones for their ages, like picking up their toys, going to bed on time, etc.
I don't know if they worked or not for the kids, but I bet good ones would work well for adults.
Another good gift is buying or making a $1 journal from Dollar Tree, dating each page so it can be used as a calendar, and writing on the top of each page, something that you find awesome about them. Then when they turn to that page to check their appointments, to do's, etc., they will see something uplifting and encouraging.
Not doing much myself lately. Still trying to get all my energy back up and running. Seems like it got up and went to Timbuktu or something. Still, am blessed I'm feeling a bit better. Yesterday at acupuncture, therapist did front of body to try to break up congestion, and I think it helped. That stuff is really good. Trying to get the VA to approve more sessions cause Medicare doesn't cover them. :(
All kinds of weird weather crossing the US. Prayers everyone does fine with it all and has a great week.
God bless.
