Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers

Valentine Card & GiftsWhile Valentine’s Day has a reputation for only being for lovers and sappy romantics, it is actually a wonderful holiday for everyone. Everyone has love in their life – love for your parents, your closest girlfriend, your thoughtful big brother or your special friend that’s recently gone through a rough patch, etc. We ALL have love and precious people in our lives – and Valentine’s Day is a great day to acknowledge and honour those relationships.

Here are a few non-romantic/sappy relationships to celebrate this Valentine’s Day this year and some gift ideas to go with each other.

Surprising people who need a pick-me-up
There are always people in your life who could use a sweet surprise.  Take a moment to send a card or yummy treat to your close friends.  Take the time to do something that lets other people know that they are loved, sometimes that isn’t some ‘something’ vs some time and a bend of your ear.
Having some fun with your kids
Valentines’ Day is a great time to enjoy family time.  Remember how fun it was get all those Valentine;s Day cards at school. Well, don’t let all the fun happen at school this year. Work on some crafts with your kids (maybe making cards to send to grandma and other people they love). Also, consider having some fun in the kitchen with heart-shaped meals and fun, colorful food decoration
Enjoy some much needed time with your girls
Taking time to enjoy food and drinks while catching up with your girls is good for your soul – actually all souls involved and it makes your realize how much you love them and what they add to your life. Also Valentine’s Day is a Wednesday this year, great excuse to enjoy a long lunch in the middle of the day

Start spring cleaning a bit early
One of the things that stands out about Valentine’s Day the most are the bright colors.  It just makes me happy.  Is your home cluttered.  Are the colors in your house dull?  Does your place need a lift?  If so, this is the perfect time to do it.  Get organized, buy yourself some flowers and add a few items that pop.  Your home needs some love, too.
Show yourself some love
Show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day and everyday.  Give yourself a couple hours to go to the spa, get a mani/pedi, treat yourself to some perfume, a new pair of shoes or your favorite chocolates and some bubbly or simply take a nice hot bath by candlelight alone.  Your deserve it.

Take some time to have a little fun this Valentine’s Day and remember its not just for those sappy young lustying lovers only 🙂

Smiles,
