As Valentine's Day nears, those in relationships start looking for ideas to make their significant other feel special. Some say there are only so many ideas out there and we've been together for years so it's harder. If you get creative, you'll find that it's not as difficult as you think. Years ago before it was so easy to share information via Internet, there may have been an excuse, but these days, there are entire web sites devoted to Valentine's Day. Here are a few fun ideas.
They say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach, so if you're a baker, surprise your sweetie with a heart-shaped dessert. You can pick up a heart-shaped cake pan or a jello mold at Bed Bath and Beyond if you don't have one on hand.
Dry Erase Picture Frame
Pick up a 5x7 picture frame and then replace the generic photo with a light-colored background paper or a paper with a colorful border. Then use a dry erase marker to leave your valentine love notes leading up to Valentine's Day. If the frame is boring, hot glue some flowers or buttons on to jazz it up.
ABC's of Love
This idea is an age old classic! Create a mini scrapbook of all the things you love about your significant other from A to Z. An old day planner can be transformed for this or a set of index cards covered with cardstock. However it's made, your valentine is sure to melt!
To really wow your valentine, take him or her for a couples massage. Relax together with a swedish, deep tissue, or hydrotherapy session to set a romantic tone for the rest of your evening.
Family Valentine's Day
For those spending Valentine's Day with all their valentines, including the little ones, create a special night by making heart-shaped food for dinner. This is easiest with breakfast food and who doesn't love breakfast for dinner? Heart-shaped pancakes and sausage patties are easy and it may just become a family tradition.
