10 fancy chocolate boxes for Valentine’s Day that will blow your mind

Look, I’m never turning down that heart-shaped box from the drugstore, but nothing says I really, really love you like artisan chocolates made with natural ingredients, crazy good chocolate, and somebody’s hands instead of a machine. Trust me, these fancy chocolate boxes are all so impressive, you really can’t go wrong with any one of these. Because, chocolate. And, let’s just say, it’s a lot less messy in the bedroom than, uh, raw oysters.

Spicing things up this Valentine’s Day with…a box.

Sometimes it can be hard to think outside the box when it comes to date nights for me and my husband. Actually, as busy working parents of four kids, it can be hard to even think outside the house when it comes to date nights. Netflix and wine, anyone? So, when Datebox sent me a sample of their subscription boxes to try out, I was curious to see the fresh, new ideas it claimed would help amp up our couple time together. (Ha! Couple time! What’s that, says the mom of four?) Related: Condoms for Valentine’s Day that give in (ahem) more than...

Cute photo Valentines that make up for the fact you forgot to send holiday cards.

In the 10 years my husband, kids, and I have been a family, I’ve managed to send out holiday cards exactly three times. These are not good odds. Like, if I were a team in the Super Bowl, bookies would strongly advise against betting that I would even remember to show up. Luckily, for all the parents, like me, whose packed schedules and busy brains preclude us from sending out holiday cards, there’s still a chance to make up for it in a big way: Valentine’s Day photo cards!

Flowers that live on, long past Valentine’s Day

While I’m not big on fake flowers (sorry fake flower fans!) I am big on real flowers, especially when they’re used in a way as gorgeous as the modern, made-to-order resin floral jewelry spotted at Modern Flower Child on Etsy. Each piece from this Oregon artist is entirely one-of-a-kind, as Sarah incorporates real flowers, grasses, and bits of foliage into resin to beautiful effect. It’s funny but from that description alone, I wouldn’t think I would like them. Then I take a look at the result and actually I think they’re quite stunning. That birch bark bangle is just awesome. Or if you’re crushing...
