Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! So, it’s time to start thinking about how to celebrate. You can show your love for that special someone or for your parents, grandparents, or friends. One thing to think about is food! When you think about it, most everything we do revolves around food. Think about what your recipient would like most. A box of candy, home baked cookies, Chinese take-out, a home cooked meal, or going to a favorite restaurant are among some of the ideas to choose from.
Next, you are going to need a special gift. Gifts don’t always have to be bought. Gifts from the heart can often be simple. You can write a letter to your loved one to tell them how much you really care and to thank them for bringing such joy to you. Another fun idea is to make coupons for others. You could write as many as you want. Some examples would be: A coupon for cooking dinner OR making the beds OR pizza and a movie night with your parents/grandparents. Remember it’s the thought that goes into the gift that matters.
I hope some of these ideas help to make your Valentine’s Day extra special this year. Remember it’s not necessarily a time to spend money on others, but a time to speak from the heart about what matters most…..those you love!
