5 Ways to Make This Valentine's Day Extra Special

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! It always feels like February is waaaay shorter than January. I don’t know what it is, but I do know that Valentine’s Day is coming right up and no matter whether you’re in a new relationship, married for 25 years, or spending this year with platonic friends, this is the perfect time to celebrate all the special relationships in your life! Make this Valentine’s Day one to remember with some of these ideas!

Romantic Breakfast Out

Dinner on Valentine’s Day is crazy busy – save yourself some time and effort and go to breakfast instead! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it’s totally an underrated meal for dining out. Pancakes, waffles, french toast…it’s totally a carb fest and I live for it! Brunch is always fun with girlfriends if you’re celebrating Galentine’s day this year!

Picnic in the Park

Not feeling the restaurant game this year? Dine al fresco! These past couple of days have been wonderfully warm. Take advantage of this uncharacteristically warm weather and get your Valentine’s Day picnic in early and pretend like spring has come early! Not warm enough for you yet? Picnic in front of the fire for an extra dose of romance.

Valentine's Day

See a Movie Matinee

Once you have kids, it can be hard to put together an entire date night. The coordination with the babysitter, the pressure to get dressed up – most days I’d rather stay home! A movie matinee might be the perfect solution if you have school-age kiddos who can take advantage of after-school programs.

There’s no pressure to look fancy and it kind of feels like playing hooky. Instead of being an adult, you’re at the movies. Fun!

Valentine’s Day Crafts With the Kids

Valentine’s Day isn’t just about your partner – it’s about all the love in your life! Get the kids involved and do some heart themed crafts. Or baking! Heart shaped sugar cookies look AND taste fantastic! The secret ingredient? Love!  

Or break out the paint and make some original art personalized for you and your family to hang on the fridge until next Valentine’s Day. This adorable Valentine’s Bingo is a craft and an activity all at once. Perfect for an entire afternoon of celebration!

Write Love Notes

This is the perfect activity to do together. You can write notes to open throughout the year, either on specific days or after specific events. I think it would be extra sweet to put them in a mason jar and leave them out where you can see them throughout the year – a little extra reminder of your love for each other.

This activity is totally adaptable for little ones too! Everyone can have their own adorable themed container. We can always put more love into the world!
