  2. When I was growing up, my Dad would give me and my sisters a plastic heart shaped box with cinnamon hearts in it for Valentine’s Day. Cinnamon hearts are still my favorite gift. Thanks!

  3. I’d love to have lobster in a fancy restaurant, so I’d have an excuse to get dressed up. Some dancing would be lovely too. I think the revolving restaurant in Edmonton would fit the bill.

  4. my fave valentine’s gift is a box of see’s dark chocolate nuts and chews. thanks for the giveaway.

  5. Flowers for sure! They are so cheery during these cold, snowy, winter months.
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  6. My favorite Valentine’s Day gift is chocolate…in a heart shaped box of course 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway!

  7. What a fun giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win. Can’t remember my favorite Valentines gift. hmmmm. My favorite wedding anniversary gift was Dewalt Power Tools !! LOL! My husband was tired of my borrowing his and I was so excited to have my own. He threw in a dozen roses as well and they looked awesome as a backdrop to the tools. Good day.

  8. A Kiss and a card would do it for me. Just the idea that you are remembered and loved is great. My husband always gets candy or flowers but it’s the card and kiss for me, but don’t tell him! 😊

  9. It may seem overly idyllic to some, but my favorite gift is just spending time with my husband. He spoils me constantly and I adore him, and this has worked for 22 years. Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

  10. A favorite Valentine’s gift is a “Happy Valentine’s” greeting from my husband of 45 years first thing in the morning. In the evening, we enjoy dining in a restaurant that is reserved for special occasions.

  11. Just being together with my husband of 44 years is all I ask for, but if he wants to throw in some fabric I wont complain. Thanks for an awesome give away.

  12. I like candy, I like fresh cut flowers, but I would have to say my favorite Valentines gift would be a potted plant, especially one the has flowers.

  13. Being totally spoiled by a bouquet of roses and having dinner cooked by my boyfriend. That’s true love. Thank you for the awesome giveaway and the chance to win.

  14. A heart shaped box of chocolates, dinner together, and fun. I would also appreciate a box of Aurifil and pretty fabrics. Any gift works as long as the giver has taken my passions into consideration. Thanks.

  15. Such a lovely giveaway! Winning your Love & Stitches prize would be pure heaven. Thanks for this opportunity and Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your wonderful sponsors!!!

  16. I would take fabric over chocolate. Thanks for a great giveaway. I would love it all. (debbie at wowilikethat dot com)

  17. I love those little conversation hearts. I may be the only one and I can only eat like 10 before I get a sugar headache but it is totally worth it.

  18. What a great giveaway! Thanks! My favorite Valentines gift is night out with my hubby but with 2 kids and no family nearby I don’t think that’s going to happen this year! I also love flowers though! Anything spring like or blue orchids!

  19. I like special flowers – not the run of the mill kind like mums or carnations – know what I mean. Some roses, or freesias are beautiful. I am grateful though for whatever I am given. Fabric would be great but it is not likely.

  20. Dinner out with my sweetie! I usually tell him to save buying the chocolate till after Valentines Day cause then he can get it for half price. Twice as much chocolate, yay!

  21. I love Valentine’s Day in every way! I don’t need gifts, but just spending time with my sweet husband is plenty for me!

  22. the man and all his loveliness, big heart that I fell for and married 35 years ago. He is still my GIFT:)

  23. Hugs and Kisses are my favourite Valentine’s gifts, or any day gifts! Chocolate and flowers are nice too 🙂

  24. Something thoughtful and from the heart is always much appreciated. Handmade cards are a personal favorite. And if it happens to be sitting on top of a box of chocolate, even better! 😉

  25. My favorite gifts were always the homemade/handmade things from my kids when they were little. I still have so many of them, and they are more precious to me than any dinner or jewelry I ever received. 🙂

  26. I really love to receive a handmade card from my loved ones on Valentine’s Day – they’re something beautiful that you can treasure forever!

  27. Valentine’s Day is also my birthday, so I usually get something for each. I love to get flowers for Valentine’s Day, and books, gift cards, or supplies for my hobbis (quilting/sewing and jewelry-making) for my birthday.

  28. So generous.. I’d love to win this bundle of goodies!!! Since my birthday is the day after Valentines Day, my fav gift is always a wonderful dinner out at one of my favorite restaurants with hubby & the kids.. this year I’ve chosen a new place for a Sunday brunch they have the most amazing omelettes on the menu!

  29. My favorite thing is to get out of the house (without the kids) and have someone ELSE make me a delicious dinner AND clean up after me! Heaven!

  30. To be shown all through the year how much my husband loves me and to get to relax on valentines day and just hold his hand and snuggle with or without our children around

  31. I would love to get cut flowers. I made the mistake ages ago telling my husband (then boyfriend) that cut flowers were a waste of money. I believe that’s the only thing he ever actually heard me say and remembered.

  32. My favorite gift is to spend one-on-one time with my husband at a lovely restaurant having uninterrupted conversation and reminiscing about how we first met.

  33. my treat for tomorrow would be for my husband to come home from the hospital but since that isn’t going to happen I will have to take him a surprise goodie of some sort and spend time with him.

  34. Quilt shop hopping is my candy store, and a bonus would be my hubby coming with me! Thanks sew much for this chance to win 😀

  35. My favorite valentines gift was always books or gift cards to my favorite craft store. My husband could buy flowers and candy any time but it was the little things that always made our Valentines days special.

  36. oh this is exactly what I need to make the card tonight , to go with a pillow I made for my littlest , sweetest Valentine – my granddaughter Juliana, for her first Valentine!!!
    Those little wooden spools are one thing I still don’t have from Aurifil and I must get me some – so super yummy!!!!
    Thanks for a fabulous giveaway, as always! HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!

  37. I love to spend Valentine’s Day with my husband: cooking together, long conversations, and the time devoted to each other is our recipe for this special day.

  38. Sitting together in front of the fire with a glass of something nice is the most romantic way to spend the evening. So, I guess that would make it the gift of time.

  39. My favorite Valentine’s Day gift……hand written cards from my daughter from when she was younger. She no longer does those kind of things.

  40. My favorite Valentine’s Day Gift was valentine’s day cards from my children..they wrote me such sweet little notes.

  41. Popped over from Sew & Sow Farm’s Blog…she says tell you HI! & she sent me over! lol (I am already a follower of yours…) Thanks for special give-a-way over there too!

  42. Hi, I am visiting from Sew and Sow Farm – a bit too late for the great giveaway, but I have signed up to follow by email! I sure enjoyed the 2014 BOM and miss it! I will keep watching for the mini’s 🙂
