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.

Make Cookies

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.
