A little daydreaming can go a long way

With Valentine’s Day approaching,, an online magazine for busy women provides readers with plenty of easy ideas to celebrate – without breaking the bank. Well known for their holiday gift guides, for Valentine’s Day, the editors explore all the angles.

This year, beginning February 2, 2009 and running through Thursday the 12th, all kinds of gifts will be featured, from sweet treats to bring to the office to a few more racy options appropriate for a more private get together. All kinds of ‘love’ theme gifts kicked things off yesterday. Favorites from that gift guide include a copy of the DVD Love Actually to a handmade vase inscribed with ‘love.’

Premiering today, February 4th is a special gift guide just for the guys, chock-full of suggestions – from a pretty pair of earrings or love charm necklace to ‘love coupons’ – that are sure to please the lady in his life.

Tomorrow, it’s all about men, with ideas ranging from bacon jam – the ultimate gift for a carnivorous foodie – to an inexpensive electronic gadget that can give a cell phone or Blackberry® two hours of call time when the battery’s dead.

Next week, the fun continues with Girlawhirl’s favorite sweets and goodies, including healthy options from Uli Mana, whose organic and raw Hemp Nut Brownies with Walnuts hold their own against the fudgiest bakery brownie in town.

It all ends on Thursday the 12th with editor in chief Linda LaSala’s favorite article, the Girlfriend Get Together. “We’ve called this one the ‘no guys – no problem’ article in the past and it’s so much fun to write. Just think about a night with all your girlfriends and then throw in some pink champagne or pink sparkling vodka, red velvet cupcakes and a deck of ‘love cards’ or other predict-the-future game, and it’s bound to be a great event.”

And while the editors at know the economy’s tough, they also support any kind of celebration that gets their readers’ minds off their worries – if only for an evening. “A little daydreaming can go a long way,” says LaSala, “and 80% of the items we’ve featured are under $50, with many of those under $20.”
