Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about giving expensive or elaborate gifts; it can be about celebrating simple acts of kindness and love. You can show the special people in your life how much you care for them with small, but meaningful gestures, and best of all, you won’t have to spend a lot of money. We have found a few creative and fun ideas, and can’t wait to share them with you!
Start Their Day Off With a Heart-y Breakfast!
It only takes a little extra planning and time to give your loved ones a “good morning hug” with a yummy Valentine’s Day breakfast. Make it extra special with heart-shaped cinnamon rolls or French toast and fresh fruit. You will be sending them off to school or work feeling the love! (Recipe courtesy of Simply Being Mommy)
Message in a Lunchbox
Keep the love going with a lunchbox surprise – and this might be the easiest Valentine’s Day idea ever, courtesy of Cake Whiz. Can you imagine the surprise and delight when your kids (and hubby, too!) open up their lunchbox or bag, only to find a handwritten message from you? All you need is fresh fruit and an edible fine-tip marker.
