Valentine’s Day is this Sunday! Are you looking for a couple simple gift ideas for someone special in your life? These unique ideas may be just what you need.
1. DIY Honey Jar Valentines – Joanna Gaines is delightful. If you haven’t watched Fixer Upper you might want to take a moment to look it up on Netflix. These Honey Jar Valentines are just a sweet, simple treat for anyone in your life.
2. Monthly Datebox. You finally have a night where it’s just you and your spouse and you both look at each other and think…what do we do? Now, you don’t have to worry about that. A date is delivered right to your door! Starting at $27.96 per month.
3. Mail your special someone a love letter to their work. It might seem simple, but words go a long way to encourage and uplift someone. And, they won’t expect to receive it at work. You could also try tuck a little note in a lunchbox or in their car!
4. Living room floor picnic! Seriously – this is a fun one. If you are having a full-on family Valentine’s Day this can be a great way to involve the kids. In our house, we always make a heart shaped homemade pizza and watch a movie. Usually we have some fun dessert we’ve bought ahead of time. The kids love being involved in making the food.
6. A jar of reasons why you love someone. This is a great way to not only seriously boost someone’s confidence and self-esteem, but is a really wonderful exercise to reminding yourself of the reasons you chose someone. Love is hard work, fight for it!
6. Love letters. I love how this looks like a tree carving. Those moments in the movies are just too sweet. Now, you can create your own moment.
7. Talk about and show love all month in your home. Read the verse 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 and talk about what it means to love one another. All month write down those things that you do to show love and then share them over dinner or in conversation.
8. Is there someone in your life that needs some extra love? Maybe they’ve gone through a tough time recently. Put together a Valentine gift basket for them, based on the things they love. This is a great way to show your kids #7 in action.
9. Hide little heart candies for your special someone to find – maybe in a coat pocket, lunch box or other special place.
10. Serve each other’s love languages. What I mean is find out what your children’s and your spouse or special someone’s love language is. Then, do something that specifically speaks to that love language. For example, I am all about the act of service. If I came home and dinner was cooked, the house was clean and everything was in order I would be ELATED. It would show love to me so much more than roses or a box of chocolates. We are all unique and there isn’t just one way to celebrate and show love.
Have some fun! Remember, love isn’t just for Valentine’s Day. Maybe these ideas give you some simple ways you can love your people well all the time. What are some other gift ideas you have? Add to the list!
