From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Kelsey Noland
We’re officially into February, the
most romantic time of the year! Though everyone immediately thinks of
Valentine’s Day, I love to use the whole month to show all my friends and
family how much I love and appreciate them. When it comes to gift-giving, I’ve
always enjoyed the act of giving rather than receiving. Some of my favorite
Valentine’s Day memories growing up were decorating Valentine boxes and writing
Valentines for everyone in my class. (I always spent so much time hand-picking
the perfect design for each friend.)
My love for those little cards still exists today and I still enjoy gifting small treasures—sometimes the smallest act of giving someone an unexpected gift, or even a handwritten card can really brighten their day. No matter who’s near and dear to you, Disney Springs has the ultimate selection of gifts, dining, and experiences that’ll surprise and delight your someone special. I’ve curated a gift guide with limited-time happenings below to help you find the perfect gift this year:
