Updated on October 14, 2013

Creating Valentines Day Ideas For The Whole Day

When we think of Valentines Day ideas we generally think of what is fed to us in jewelry and candy commercials on the television and radio. It's called Valentine's Day, meaning it encompasses the whole day not just the part where you exchange gifts and cards.

Make the decision this year for the one you love to take some extra time and plan out the whole day to make it special. That doesn't mean that you have to spend an enormous amount of money showing your sweetheart how much you love them. But if you do take a little bit of your time starting now and plan out February 14th your chosen love will remember it long after they eat some expensive chocolate.

Below find out how you can take some Valentines Day ideas and turn them into the most special day of the year for your sweetie.

Fuel Your Day With This Romantic Breakfast Idea

If this year's sweetest day falls during the week you still need to eat breakfast. Heart shaped pancakes with strawberry syrup or preserves are a quick and thoughtful way to start the day for the both of you.

Heart Shaped Pancakes

  • Pancake batter for four small pancakes
  • Heart-shaped pancake mold
  • Butter
  • Your favorite red preserves, fresh raspberries, or strawberries.

For super rushed mornings buy some pre-made toaster cook style pancakes and cut them out with the cookie cutter. Although the freshly made ones taste better and making them yourself may get you extra points for the effort.

Standing in the card aisle of the local pharmacy trying to find a special message to show how much you love someone is a sign of true love. All the while rummaging through the floor to find the matching envelope to a $7 card that almost covers your thoughts. Not much fun.

Get creative this year and put some thought into

      @athomemomblog: We do those little things too and they are probably the most appreciated by both of us. Thank you for your comment

      We don't do much for Valentine's Day around here, but often it's the little things. A rose on the pillow before bed, an extra kiss and an "I love you" or even a gesture of love like doing the dishes when you normally don't.
