What not to get me for Valentine's Day

Valentine's is a time to appreciate those around you. If we all show appreciation we will receive it in return. This year life looks differently than any other year. So I don't want an expensive gift for the sake of getting something just because it's expensive. So I'm giving experiences and gifts that are meaningful and will impact my loved ones' life. And that's what I hope for in return. (If you purchase through my Amazon Store, I may receive a small percentage at no additional cost to you. Thank you for supporting my small business!)

What NOT to get me

This is going to make me unpopular. But I don't want expensive gifts for the sake of getting an expensive gift. I'd rather you purchase me a share of VOO stock! Don't know what that is? You should join the Millionaire AchieveHers Money Club where we learn and discuss investments.

I would also want an experience that will allow me to disconnect and/or a gift that is functional for my life right now.

Candle Making Experience

In this photo you see Isaac and I making candles at a local candle bar. We had the place to ourselves.

For the family with kids, I recommend renting out a movie theater just for your family. All the big theater allow it and prices range from $99-$200 to have a theatre to yourself!

Here are my top experiences and gifts for men and women:

Foot Massage Experience. If your girlfriend or wife is anything like me, she love a great foot rub! So make it special with candles, foot scrub and foot cream and her favorite chocolates. Then gift her a massager to use at her desk while working so she will always remember you! Click the photos to see reviews and shipping details.

I also highly recommend another money saving platform. Rakuten! You simply sign up and shop online as you usually do at your favorite sites and earn cash back. Expedia, Macy's, VRBO and Gamestop are my favorites on Rakuten. I've earned almost $300 back since I joined! Do your own research and let me know what you think. If you sign up with my Rakuten link we both receive extra cash back!

Weighted Blanket - If you or someone you know suffers from being anxious or depression, consider the weighted blanket. It's comforting and feels as if you are being held tight and is shown to reduce nervousness and anxiety. Click the photo to read more.
