Valentine’s Day should be celebrated on every single day! The 14 of February isn’t the only day of the year to show that you care and to spoil your loved ones! Couples celebrate this special day and so do family and friends.

While you care for those close to you all year round, Valentine’s Day is more special… You could be exchanging gifts, but I believe that spending time together is more valuable! It’s great to have both, gifts and quality time together. However, if you can’t afford gifts, you still can spend time that leaves behind golden memories to treasure!

I’m sure that you’ll find endless things that you can buy, so let me give you some ideas on activities to do on this tremendous day:

Valentine for couples

Plan for a surprise breakfast! Wake up earlier and prepare a special breakfast for your spouse, making sure to include his/her favourite delicacies. Arrange the table nicely or serve breakfast in bed!

Curl up together on the couch to watch your favourite movie. You can either choose a new movie or watch an older one that brings back best memories. In case you both don’t have the same taste, then give in to your spouse’s choice to spend a great time! Don’t argue!! Just smile!!!

Bake him/her heart cookies, decorate in a favourite colour and garnish nicely. Serve with tea/coffee/ice cream or perhaps some wine or champagne?

Cooking together is a lovely way to spend time together while catering for a special Valentine’s Day dinner. Light up candles and play soft music. Have dinner out on the terrace, for a change.

Go for a long drive together, maybe in the countryside. See nature, talk, and get out of the car to take photos of spectacular views!

Valentine with family/friends

Party with your kids, family & friends. Celebrate togetherness and have fun at the same time.

Sing karaoke, taking turns so that everyone has a chance to interact in the group. Show each and everyone that he/she’s special.

Play sports or games in teams. Of course, the best team will win. However, everyone needs to share the fun of playing together.

Do volunteer work together. This Valentine’s Day, your whole family or group of friends can opt for a visit to a home/orphanage. Make others know that they’re blessed, no matter in which circumstances they’re living today, the future should be better!

Valentine for singles

If you’re single but have family/friends to celebrate with, then see the above ideas.

If you have to spend Valentine’s Day in solo, then spoil yourself to the maximum! Take yourself out to your favourite places, doing things that you enjoy most. Don’t forget that your canine friend also needs to celebrate Valentine’s Day!

  1. It is such a joy for me to make up a Valentines gift bag for my three daughters. I love taking my time and finding meaningful items to include that show how much I care about them and how each of them is special and unique and loved.

  2. Being single on Valentine’s Day and going to one of my favorite places led me to the love of my life. We knew each other, but spending time together talking that night was the start of our relationship.
