Valentine’s Day is a whole day devoted to love. A typical day would include flowers, gourmet chocolates, and romantic dinners for two. While nothing beats spending time with your significant other, why not make it a day to remember for all of your loved ones and celebrate Valentine’s Day as a family? We’ve created an outstanding selection of entertaining family Valentine’s Day ideas to ensure your day is nothing short of extraordinary.
Crafting is the place for kids who want to celebrate and parents who need a break. This makes everyone feel connected and as if they are indeed a part of the experience you’re hosting, even if they are geographically separated. You can also get Valentine day flowers for your family members and make them feel special on this day.
Go Out For A Meal
Make Valentine’s Day extra memorable for your loved ones by going out on the town! When was the last time you all went out for supper and performance, or a movie, or a stroll along the boardwalk? Now is the ideal moment for a family night out. When selecting a restaurant, keep in mind that you will be competing with countless other couples who have made their dinner reservations in advance – so do the same! Make a reservation for your table of two, three, or seven a week in advance. Make sure to inquire if the restaurant will be offering a special menu. Select a family-friendly restaurant where you can order from the menu and save money for after-dinner activities.
A Couple Activity
Finding a fun activity in your region is another of my inventive Valentine’s Day gift ideas. Enroll in a pair of activity dancing classes, the gym, or simply a morning stroll in the park. This will allow you to spend quality time together while doing something you both enjoy.
Bake Something Together
Sweets and Valentine’s Day go together like clockwork. Rollout sugar cookies are ideal for bringing your family together around the table for some fun. Allow your children to use the heart-shaped cookie cutters to make festive treats as you roll out the cookies. Then, after baking, you’re bound to laugh as you decorate them with icing and sprinkles. You can also bake a heart-shaped Valentine cake to make this day even more memorable.
Cook Food Together
A home-cooked dinner prepared with affection. Cook the favorite meal for your family. As long as you don’t forget to include the secret ingredient of love, it will be a memorable supper.
On a particularly excellent year, we do something similar: instead of random acts of kindness. Use the month of February to share God’s never-ending love with people by focusing on the theme of love. From writing cards and delivering them to nursing facilities to covertly delivering candy to neighbors at night, these 14 activities were a fantastic way for our family to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Read A Book Together
This is one of the best low-cost family bonding activities you can do together. Gather in a small circle with your favorite Valentine’s Day book and read aloud to one another. This is a fantastic learning experience and memory for younger children. Check out a couple of more books for the rest of the week if you want to make family reading time a daily or weekly ritual.
The important thing is to take a step back and consider what might make a great memory other than flowers and chocolates.
