What is the next big gift giving day after the holidays? You guessed it Valentine’s Day. When we think of Valentine’s Day the first thing that comes to our mind is a mushy, cookie-cutter Hallmark movie kind of day, full of love, chocolates, and roses from a special someone in our life.
Nowadays, V-day is NOT just a lovers day anymore. It is a day of showing love to anyone we appreciate including our friends, co-workers, family, or maybe even yourself. If you are struggling with your plans for V-Day this year, then we have your back! This year we have put together some great ideas to make your Valentine’s Day a little brighter.
Celebrate with Family
Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to show your love with a meal. Gather your kids around, look up your favorite dinner and dessert recipe, and enjoy cooking a meal together, then sit together in the living room, dining room, or kitchen and enjoy a family meal! Do you already have dinner as a family? Add a fun topic to the dinner table and have a fun conversation for the night… for example bring a fun question to the table such as… If you could have a zoo animal as a pet, which animal would you choose & why? Trust us these questions will spark up a nice Valentine’s Day conversation.
When was the last time you treated yourself? Well, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to do that. Quality time alone not only helps us appreciate our accomplishments, increase our self esteem, but also helps us find happiness in our everyday life. This Valentine’s Day get a movie, pamper yourself with a spa, or get take out for dinner. Spend an hour or maybe two and reminisce on those recent accomplishments you have made, the good things that have happened in the week, and if it wasn’t such a good week perhaps think about how you can change that up.
