Valentine’s Day is not like any other gift-giving holiday (Christmas, Birthday, etc.) – it’s a holiday all about love. Not just romantic love for your spouse or significant other, but for your mom, your dad, your siblings, your children, your best friend. So when you’re giving a Valentine gift, you want to really pamper someone, not just give them something they need – give them something they want. Here are my Valentine’s Day gift suggestions for everyone in your life.

footballThis season was the year I finally convinced my wife to give watching football for fun a try, and slowly but surely she has come around to enjoying it. It doesn’t hurt that every Sunday when we do watch the games we make an event out of it and fire up the crockpot to make our favorite game-day delights.

With the regular season long-gone (and with that my favorite team long-eliminated from the post-season) and the playoffs in full swing, it is time to think about the big event that is coming up – the Super Bowl! This year’s NFL championship game will be played on February 3rd, so there is still time to get your game-day menu all set.

Don’t get me wrong, I love baskets, but for some storage jobs, they simply don’t fit right. Plus, sometimes a girl just wants a more updated look than a traditional woven basket can provide. Fabric storage bins provide the perfect alternative to baskets around the home. Fabric baskets have a more rectangular, streamlined design and therefore are just a tad bit more space-efficient.
