If you’re hoping for romance, you may find it’s easiest to achieve if you hire a sitter or call Grandma to be with the kids. Of course, you can still involve your children in part of the day, if they’re old enough; help them make cards, biscuits, or cupcakes for their friends. Later, enjoy reconnecting with your mate during a date night complete with a special dinner out.
Many of us have footage of our weddings but don’t watch it often, if ever. Valentine’s day is the perfect time to re-watch the ceremony and relive the excitement of your special day. You can do this with your spouse or let the little ones watch too.
This romantic holiday is all about expressing your feelings for the ones you hold dear, so make gift-giving part of the celebration. Candy disappears quickly and flowers fade, but personalised jewellery makes a meaningful, memorable gift that goes with just about everything in your closet. What about that special man in your life? Men’s personalised jewellery is hotter than ever, with lots of new, unexpected styles to choose from. If someone is looking for gift ideas for you, or if you’re looking for the perfect gift for your own mother, mum jewellery is the perfect way to put your love of family on display.
One of the simplest Valentines for mum involves favourite movies, snacks, and lots of cuddling on the couch. Perhaps the fun begins with a romantic family movie before the kids go to bed, and continues with a special film just for mum and dad after the little ones retire for the evening.
You need to feed your family, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself. Make more time to enjoy the festivities by ordering your favourite meal. Chinese takeaway, spicy Indian fare, or perhaps your favourite pizza will do the trick.
Someone very wise once said that friends are the family we choose. What better way to express your caring than by having a few friends over for a special meal, plenty of conversation, and maybe a fun movie? Decorate your home and make an evening of it!
Kids love the bright colors, sweet flavours, and warm sentiments associated with Valentine’s Day. There are so many fun things to do; create paper hearts to hang around your home, or hit Pinterest for valentine craft ideas you can do as a family. Involving your kids will help them understand just how special they are to you, so make a day of it!
