My Top 5 Valentines Day Ideas

Updated on June 19, 2013

There are so many things that I could and want to do on Valentines day. Though if I had it my way I would do everything on my list. I have narrowed it down to my top 5 ideas for other couples who need a little extra help deciding on what to do.

1. The original home cooked candle lit dinner

Nothing tells your significant other how much you love them by cooking their favorite meal with a romantic ambiance. Light some candles and take it to where ever the night leads you. Not only is it more personable but it is very easy on your wallet.

2. Picnic at the park

Just like the original home cooked candle lit dinner. Sometimes people have homes with limited space. So depending on where you live and weather permitted you can have a picnic at the park or on the beach. During the day or under the starlit sky.

3. On the go couples with a little extra money

Take your Valentine to a nice restaurant. **Remember roads will be packed and so will restaurants.** With Valentines day around the corner it is very important to get your reservations in as soon as you can. That way you can avoid waiting in long lines to get a table. If you want to take your Valentine to a restaurant that does it on a first come first serve basis, make sure you reserve ample time to get there before the rush and also be able to find parking that will not cost you an arm and a leg if they do not already provide free parking.

4. Family oriented

Valentines day to me is not about the flowers your buy or the chocolates you receive. It's about surrounding yourself with the people that you love. Look for kid friendly establishments. For example, a museum, adventure park, Dave-n-Busters or even Chuck-e-Cheese for the tots. Being together and involving your children is important and it sets a good example of family togetherness.

5. The Long-Distance Relationships

This year on Valentines day I will be apart of the long distance group. My husband is in the Military and will be deployed. There are many things you can do for your Valentines no matter the distance between you. Decorate and fill up a flat rate box with their favorite goodies. Write a romantic letter to also add to your goodie box. Order flowers from 1-800-Flowers and have them delivered with a cute note right at their doorstep. Your only limited by your imagination. My favorite is baked goods. (I have another hub on how to keep your baked goods fresh in the mail).

Sky's the limit. I hope you all have an amazing Valentines Day and that my hub can help clarify some other the ideas you might already have.
