Record a Video
Don’t forget about your family far away. Use your computer’s built-in webcam to record a video e-card to send to grandparents and other relatives to let them know you’re thinking about them.
This is a Valentines tradition that my husband started 24 years ago. On our first February 14, he snuck into my bedroom and left me these amazing Neiman Marcus cookies.
Each year he goes to the store, buys all the ingredients and I know I can expect a batch of these warm cookies as part of our Valentines ritual.
Flower Petals on the Bed
Surprise your loved one by placing flower petals on the bed.
Something to note, rose petals can leave stains on the sheets and comforter. If that is a concern, you can use silk flower petals.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
While yes, you can make them – I’m just saying mine never come out as cute as when I buy them.
Even better, Amazon sells them.
Make Heart Shape Cinnamon Rolls
This is something small but meaningful that the kids will love.
For breakfast on February 14, make heart shaped cinnamon rolls. This is a super easy Valentines day idea.
Write a Love Letter
Remember those days before computers? Me neither. Apparently, back then – whenever then was… people wrote letters.
Bring back the good old days, apparently before we were born and write a handwritten love letter to your significant other.
Create a Modern Mix Tape
Create a modern mix tape! Remember the old cassettes or CDs made with love songs – here is a modernized approach to this old romantic concept.
