My Valentine's Day Gift from Tiffany!

Okay, I know it's a recession ... but I bought myself a Valentine's gift. I just HAD to have something in that little blue box. And guess what? It only cost $30.

Tiffany and Co.

Momlogic's Julie: Due to the recession, my husband and I weren't doing Valentine's gifts this year.

But at the last minute, I decided it might be fun to have a little something for us to open on the big night. But it had to be within our budget (translation: CHEAP AS HELL).

Just for fun, I went on the Tiffany & Co. website on Thursday. A girl can dream, can't she? I noticed they were offering free shipping guaranteed to arrive by Valentine's Day. Now free I could work with.

But did EVERYTHING from Tiffany cost a small fortune?

I went to the Valentine's Gifts for Under $100 page (yes, I was shocked they had one) and focused in on the most inexpensive thing they offered: playing cards emblazoned with the Tiffany logo. Sure, they were $30 ... yes, INSANE to pay for two decks of cards ... but that came in that iconic blue box, and I thought it might be fun and decadent to open something from Tiffany on Valentine's Day, no matter how small.

So last night, when we opened our Valentine's Day gift from Tiffany, we felt positively rich cracking open that robin's egg blue box. And then we played three games of gin before heading to the bedroom.

Of course my man got lucky ... I had just gotten a Valentine's Day gift from Tiffany, hadn't I?

It was obvious, in the game of love, we had definitely played our cards right.

What did YOU get for Valentine's Day? Comment below.

At first, I thought this was really sad that you just had to have something from Tiffany for V.D. (which I think both are overrated) but then you said that you and your husband played cards together for awhile and then I thought well that’s good…my husband and I love to play cards and it’s such a great time hanging out together more like friends this spouses and I think that a great thing. When you’ve been married along time, you need those times as friends to make it feel more solid together. So I say: ENJOY!

We snuck to wal mart and darted around each other in the store and spent maybe 10 bucks on each other, very simple and cheap.

What did I get? I got laid off by Tiffany and Company two weeks before Valentine’s Day.
