Love Tokens

This is a fun gift for the kids. Make your own love tokens out of heavy card stock. You can cut out quarter or fifty cent piece size shapes like circles and hearts and write messages of love on them for your loved ones to keep with them. Put them in an organza pouch for safe keeping.

What I Love About You

Create a love book with sentences about what is in your heart, but may not always be able to say out loud. Tell the most important person in your life just how much they mean to you by writing up a little booklet of all the things you love about them. Check out PurpleTrail.com to create a customized notebook. You can add unlimited photos and change text / color on the cover. Then use this notebook to write what you love about your loved one inside.

Sweet Nothings

Get out your baking supplies and bake up something sweet. Homemade brownies, rice krispie treats, or lemon short bread cookies can help you say I love you this Valentine’s Day. Use clever Vanlentine cut-outs like hearts, cupids and arrows. You don’t have to do a lot or make it complicated. Choose something you are comfortable baking and put it on a red plate. Even if you aren’t a baker, you can easily doctor up store bought cookies. Get some madelines and dip them in melted chocolate or make a plate full of chocolate covered strawberries and blueberries. The effort and thoughtfulness is what counts.

Night In

Surprise your significant other by organizing the kids to stay at grandma’s house for the night. You don’t even have to plan a big dinner or anything. Just having time alone may be present enough. Make the night something you both enjoy. Get that movie you’ve been wanting to watch, play your favorite board game, or simply open your favorite wine and have a conversation. Just relax and enjoy each other!

Scavenger Hunt

Create a scavenger of clues that lead a fun little Valentine’s treasure. For the kids you can get little things like a movie ticket, candy or something small they might enjoy. An adult version of this could lead your significant other to a candle lit dinner or decadent dessert. Put the clues in creative places like the freezer, laundry machine or even by the cat food. Kids and adults can enjoy this game and it’s not very expensive to create!
