As we tip our hat to January, we start dusting off and hanging our heart-shaped wreaths in honor of every romantic’s favorite upcoming holiday – Valentine’s Day! Thanks to sheknows.com we have a few fun facts to share about the big day!
Did you know: ~ Girls of medieval times ate bizarre foods on St. Valentine’s Day to make them dream of their future spouse? ~ In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned onto their sleeves for one week for everyone to see. This was the origin of the expression “to wear your heart on your sleeve.” ~ Over $1 billion worth of chocolate is purchased for Valentine’s Day in the U.S!
And, as always, we turn to the queen of Valentine’s crafts, Martha Stewart, for lots of great ideas to turn your humble abode into a sweet house of love!
With all that chocolate being doled out to the sweethearts don’t forget to give something for the salt-lovers! And what says “I love you” more than a personalized bag of Texas-shaped chips and personalized jar of Salsa?!
Send your love some Texas Treats Texas-shape Tortilla Chips (4 oz. bag) dipped in our tasty Salsa Ranchera (8 oz. jar) for a little afternoon pick-me-up. It’s a Texas comfort food! For only $2 more you can personalize the label to say “For My Sweetheart!” or “The Love Of My Life’s Salsa” ~ you can wear your heart on your label. Tell your Valentine how much you love him or her!
And for the extra Texas flare, you can wrap it up in this Texas Gift Bag! We all see hearts when we see the Texas flag anyways, so it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!
We hope you have a special someone in your life that you’re already thinking about showering with love this Valentine’s Day – but if you don’t, do the next best thing and shower yourself (or a friend!) with some yummy Texas Treats!
