Video: Watch Justine Santaniello talk to Candace Rose about her top Valentine’s Day gifts for 2016!
Candace Rose: How can we make this Valentine’s Day one for the record books?
Justine Santaniello: “I think the best place for us to start is with chocolate, right? Valentine’s Day and chocolate, they go hand in hand, so I have this perfect chocolatey treat for you guys right here, it’s this limited edition TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk. It is so delicious and it’s nutritious. It’s made with low fat milk right from your local dairy. There’s no artificial growth hormones or high fructose corn syrup so you can feel good about serving it to your whole family.
Not all of us are lucky enough to spend this holiday with the person that we love, and if that’s the case for you, you want to make sure that you’re getting a gift that helps you to stay in touch and to stay connected. This Alcatel Pixi Glitz Android smartphone from TracFone – if your sweetie already has a smartphone that they love, that’s okay, you guys can check out TracFone’s bring your own phone program. That allows them to keep the phone that they love to talk, text and go online for less and you know that you’re getting coverage on America’s largest and most dependable network.” For more information you can go to TracFone.com.
Candace Rose: What are some things that can be done with kids?
Justine Santaniello: “One of my favorite traditions when I was a kid was going to school and exchanging Valentine’s. Instead of picking up those store-bought pre-packaged Valentine’s, why not make some together at home as a family? All you have to do is go to your local craft store to make little gift bags or maybe you already have a mason jar at home? You can bake and cut out heart shaped cookies, get some frostings to decorate. It becomes a bonding activity for you guys as a family, but then kids have something unique to hand out at school, and parents can also hand these out as well to coworkers, neighbors, friends! Everyone is going to love it because they are going to see that you really put that time and energy into it.” (Please see video above for Justine’s great Valentine’s Day DIY ideas).
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share with us?
Justine Santaniello: “I always like to leave you guys with a final note, this is a holiday about love, so if nothing else, don’t forget to tell the people that you care, just how much you love them. It’s a small thing but a little goes a long way.”
