I’m super excited to help cohost #LoveBlog with Belle Brita again this year! This is a daily linkup during the month of February, talking about anything and everything having to do with love. Each day has it’s own topic and anyone is welcome to join! Today’s topic is on Valentine’s Day!
I am one of the lucky girl when it comes to Valentine’s Day. My birthday is on February 10, so birthday surprises and V-day surprises come nearly back to back. Justin really spoils me: I get a gift for my birthday (and chocolate), a special dinner and/or date in between, then a gift and chocolate for Valentine’s Day. He calls it Valentine’s Week. And poor Justin…he did such a great job our first year of marriage that he feels he has to live up to that every year!
This year, it’s going to be a little more casual (I hope), since we paid for plane tickets for me and the kids to be in Utah right now. I think the best Valentine’s Day gift I gave Justin were some bacon roses. He absolutely loved them!
But, since I’m not that comfortable about leaving both my toddler and my one month old with a babysitter just yet, I think we’ll forgo the dinner date this year (although Justin is more than welcome to make a special dinner!). So, I thought I’d share some inexpensive ways you could share Valentine’s Day together at home.
10 Ways to Celebrate V-Day At Home
(Without spending money)
- Make dinner together
- Bake each others’ favorite desserts
- If V-Day is on a weekend, make breakfast in bed for your spouse
- After the kids go to bed, cuddle (and more!! *wink wink*)
- Watch a favorite movie (for us, it would not be a lovey dovey romantic or rom-com…Justin disdains those)
- Give each other acts of service–clean the house, let him/her take a nap, give a back/foot massage
- Play a board or card game together
- Talk out on the porch, enjoying the evening together
- Build a fire, light some candles, and enjoy each others’ presence.
- Help your kids to create handmade Valentine’s for their parents.
