The 8 Fun Ideas To Celebrate Valentine’s Day
At Wednesday, we know that you don’t need a reason or special day to plan a delicious dinner date with your partner, but Valentine’s day reminds us to make time for those we love. Everyone knows that Valentine’s Day is supposed to be romantic. You know what’s anything but romantic, though? Fights over money. Looking for something to do besides dinner and a movie on Valentine’s Day (or Singles Awareness Day)? Want to celebrate, but don’t want to do anything ultra romantic? The following tips can help you brainstorm fun-yet-frugal ideas for what could turn out to be your best Valentine’s Day yet.
The Most Fun Ideas for Valentine’s Day
- Make a pan of Rice Krispies Treats, cool slightly, and then let your kids use a heart-shaped cookie cutter (coated with cooking spray) to punch out edible valentines. Decorate with frosting and/or candies.
- Part of your romantic day in could include a trip to the “spa” you create at home. Clean your bathtub and the rest of your bathroom thoroughly before Saturday so you won’t have to be bothered with such chores on your day off together, and get your “spa” all ready before the big day.
- Stellenbosch is a beautiful place to spend Valentine’s Day and Devonvale Golf and Wine Estate is hosting a sunset concert featuring guitar duo Amy and Willem, also known as Moonshine. Book a delicious picnic basket from their restaurant and enjoy your dinner under the stars.
- Melt a bag of chocolate chips in the microwave, then stir in raisins, marshmallows, candy hearts, etc. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a baking sheet, and let set in the fridge until hard. Wrap the candies in pink cellophane and tie with ribbon to give to friends, sitters, and teachers.
- Your local entertainment listings just may reveal that a college or university in your area is offering up all sorts of nifty live entertainment on Feb. 14. Performances by a college music or theater department may be free or may cost a fraction of the price charged by professional orchestras or opera and theater houses.
- There are great places to picnic all over the country – from beaches to botanical gardens, pack a picnic basket and celebrate with your friends and family. Since Valentine’s Day is on a Wednesday this year, evening picnics are a great option.
- Have a heart-y laugh! What do you call a very small valentine? A valentiny! How about this one: What does a caveman give his wife on Valentine’s Day? Ughs and kisses!
- With the help of a package of inexpensive Valentines from the drugstore or grocery store or, for that matter, any kind of paper you could write out dozens of reasons why you love your mate. Leave the messages all over the house, in both noticeable and hidden-away places.
