Valentine’s Day Celebration Ideas
It’s just around the corner. The day of hearts, and love. I’m sure you all hear it every year…that we should show love every day of the year, but there something fun and special about Valentine’s Day that’s hard to ignore. We’re all have our own unique lifestyle. Some of us have small children, teen children, no children, spouse/significant other, no spouse significant other. But we all can celebrate this happy day in one way or another! Let’s break it down with these great Valentine’s Day celebration Ideas!
8 Valentine’s Day Celebration Ideas For Families With Children
As a family with small children, you probably want to have lots of fun and show your love for your kids. My top tip, before we go into the list, is time. Quality time. Of course, daily quality time is essential, but you can up the ante on Valentine’s Day for some extra special time, and add in some of these activities.
- Create home made Valentine’s Day cards together.
- Put notes of love in your child’s lunch box or back pack.
- Make breakfast together for the family, or for your child’s other parent, and bring it to them in bed.
- Host a family dance party!
- Have a small Valentine’s Day party for your child and a few of their friends. Play music they love, have a fun craft for them to make, and encourage appreciation for each other.
- Make sugar cookies and decorate them.
- Have a family scavenger hunt!
- Teach your child to do acts of service. For example, if mom always keeps the kitchen clean, dad can help the child clean the kitchen for mom to help her out and show their appreciation for her hard work.
No matter what you choose to do with your child/children, they’ll be happy and appreciate the time you spend with them.
11 Valentine’s Day Celebration Ideas for Couples
Whether you have children or not, couples need time to themselves, and these Valentine’s Day celebration ideas are not only fun, but they’re great when you’re on a budget. These days, spending a lot of money on dates can be difficult for many. Plus, we need to remember that it’s not about how much you spend. It’s about the quality of the time you spend together.
- Let’s start with a romantic scavenger hunt for your significant other.
- Acts of service. Just as with your kids, it’s always a wonderful feeling when another person does something that we usually do. Help your significant other out by doing their daily chores/tasks. It’ll give them a break, and make them feel appreciated.
- Unplug for 24 hours. Stay away from phones, tablets, laptops, etc. Just spend time together.
- Go out and take a walk together. If you live where it’s cold, a walk through the snow can be super romantic.
- After your walk, sit down with a nice hot cup of cocoa, or tea together, maybe by the fire, or just at the table for some light conversation.
- Leave love notes in places where your significant other will find them.
- Cook dinner together, then sit down to enjoy it.
- Have an indoor picnic (if it’s cold outside), or an outdoor picnic if you live in an area that’s warm in February.
- Have a movie night. And I’m not going to tell you that you have to watch romantic movies. Watch what the two of you love. Action/adventure, thriller, comedy, romance, whatever! The point is to spend time doing something you both love.
- Take a tour of your local area. Maybe you haven’t seen all that’s to be seen where you live. Go do some exploring, go on an adventure!
- Go ice skating together.
- Go horseback riding.
