As I think about making this Valentine’s Day special with my family, I thought I would share my picks – 10 Valentine’s Day Ideas for Families. Sometimes I see ideas out there that are cute and fun, but realistic? Not so much. Not for me anyway. Last year my husband and I enjoyed a getaway for a couple of nights but usually we are together as a family.
Fancy dinners or dinner reservations are nice, but around Valentine’s Day, restaurants are busy. Plus, it can be really expensive. I like this idea for a Brown Bag Date Night. Either make your own or pick up your favorites and enjoy it at home together, either as a couple or a family. Great idea!
Cute food is neat to look at but honestly, I don’t have a lot of time for it. Bacon in the morning before work and school is pushing it as it is, but these Bacon Hearts are completely do-able.
There are a lot of ideas out there for sweet treats, but how about sending your loved one out the door with a bottle of pretty and refreshing infused water? Maybe cut the watermelon and cucumbers with a small heart shaped cookie cutter.
What better way is there to wake up in the morning than to cinnamon rolls? Cinnamon rolls are special any day but Sweet Heart Cinnamon Rolls are extra special for Valentine’s Day!
Making a Valentine Tree can involve the whole family plus serve as decor. To make this a meaningful family activity, each family member could decorate a heart or write a love note.
Maybe instead of going out with Valentine’s day decorations, treats, and gifts, just make a fun mocktail beverage that everyone in the family can enjoy. So festive and fun for all ages!
We can’t just celebrate with sweets (we can’t?!) so a family project would be fun. This family hand print art is a treasure.
I love the idea of a Valentine Hot Cocoa Bar. Cinnamon hearts, chocolates, sprinkles and whipping cream – yum!
This is something
my family would totally do I would absolutely subject my family to: fun family photos! The heart umbrella looks easy enough, but balloons would be a super simple prop too. Lots of ideas at the link that follows.
What a treat! Strawberry glazed donuts made with real strawberries? And they’re baked, not fried. The perfect way to start or end a sweet day with your favorites.
