Celebrate Valentine’s Day with everyone you love

(BPT) - Valentine’s Day is not just for lovers anymore. While we naturally want to show our significant others how much we love them on the sweetest holiday of the year, Valentine’s Day has become a wonderful day to celebrate everyone we care about, from your BFF to your furry, feathered and four-legged friends. In fact, last year the National Retail Federation reported that approximately 20 percent of Americans plan to buy Valentine’s Day gifts for their pets.

Here are some ways to share the love with everyone who is important to you this Valentine’s Day:

For him: For the special man in your life, put him in charge of capturing your special moments together with the nostalgic Fuijifilm Instax Mini Camera. Or for the gamer in your life, why not spend time playing Nintendo Switch? Maybe you’ll even let him win.

For her: For her, there’s nothing like setting a relaxing, romantic mood for a memorable evening together. Celebrate Valentine’s night with the help of a handmade Lavender Natural Soy Wax Candle infused with natural essential oils like lavender, orange, lemon and cedarwood. Then pour a glass of her favorite wine for both of you into All Purpose Wine Glasses and shower her with affection.

For your BFFs: Sometimes on Valentine’s Day, all you want to do is hang with your girls. Have your BFFs over for the perfect Galentine’s Day brunch. Get in the party mood with some great decor like a Glitter Galentine's Day Banner and the perfect playlist from Prime Music, then prepare a waffle feast fit for the queens you are with a Heart Maker Waffle Iron. End the day by watching an awesome girl-power movie like "Miss Congeniality" or "Lady Bird" on Prime Video.

For your kids: Valentine’s Day is a great time for a festive family party with your kids. Decorate the house for your event together with a Light-Up Love Easel Sign and Valentine’s Day Paper-Kit Party Decorations. Share some sweet treats and favorite games as a family, followed by a fun creative activity using an easy-to-make Plush Craft Heart Pillow Kit.

For your furry friend: More pet owners than ever are showing their appreciation for their animal companions by giving them special gifts on Valentine’s Day. No matter what size your dog is, you can find a comfy sweat suit to fit them from Scheppend Adidog Pet Clothes, which come in 12 different sizes and 9 cute colors. Spoil your pooch while also watching their health with snacks from the Petco Treat Bar while you indulge yourself with some yummy Chocolate Covered Strawberries by Golden State Fruit.

Help us save student newsrooms


In conjunction with Save Student Newsrooms day on April 25, we launched our $3,500 campaign to provide our newsroom with some of the tools and resources needed to compete in the digital world.

We are asking for your generosity at this time to help us update our multimedia equipment.

We have not been able be purchase any multimedia equipment since 2013 and are working with lenses that are 17 years old. Unfortunately, we often rely on students using their own equipment.

Your donations will not only help Emerald Media Group produce better content, but it will also better prepare our student journalists for professional positions by giving them opportunities to use state of the art equipment.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the Emerald Media Group and our student journalists.
