I present you with my 2014 Valentine’s Wish List. I figure if my husband has good, firm hints I’m more likely to wake up on Feb 14th with something I can fully enjoy! (Remember, there’s nothing more satisfying to a gift giver than the knowledge that their gift is appreciated and loved. Sometimes a well-placed hint can make this possible!)
My favorite flavor, color, Spice Girl, movie trailer AND Namaste bag are PUMPKIN SPICE – and I’m giving a teeny little one away on my blog!

Here are a few suggestions that might work well, or that you might decide to ask for yourself! As with my previous gift idea post, I have no affiliation with these products, they’re simply things I’ve tried that I think would be helpful for a crafter.
One of the loveliest kindnesses we knitters & crocheters can engage in is to give a necessary gift. Maimonides wrote that there are 8 levels of Tzedakah (charity), the highest form being when neither the giver nor the recipient are aware of each others identity.
