Valentine’s Day sets back to around 3rd century in Europe, according to a legend. The legend’s love and affection has been carried on throughout history. February 14th is the day to spread the love and exchange affectionate gifts to one another. If you are unsure of what to do on Valentines Day, here are some tips!

  1. Spend quality time with a loved one. Go out to a nice restaurant or create a special dinner. Cuddle with your significant other on a couch and watch a movie. Try to avoid distractions, such as surfing the internet, chatting on the phone while around people, or deciding to do other things by yourself or with another group of people.


  1. Make a homemade card for someone. The card will have more meaning to it if it’s created by you instead of buying a card from a store. Use your own words to describe the person you’re giving it to. Create a poem or a note of appreciation. Add a little “copyrighted” symbol on the back of the card for fun


  1. Think of candy, chocolate, and sweets: If you are getting something for a school classmate, get a small box of those sugary hearts with the little sayings on them. If you wish, feel free to stop by your local store and buy those big heart shaped boxes with assorted chocolates.


  1. Express yourself with a flower: Express your words with a rose. While lavender is seen more on first dates, white roses are a tradition for weddings. The red rose is a rose that expresses and emphasizes beauty and love. Red roses are traditionally exchanged by couples and people whom wish to express their feelings towards another.

  1. Enjoy Valentines Day Alone: Who says that people need a companion for this one day of the year? Treat yourself to a spa or a long bubble bath. Take a long drive and enjoy the scenery. If it’s too cold or too hot, stay inside and watch a movie. Have kids? Take them out and spend your Valentines with the little ones who deserve more.

We hope you enjoy your Valentines Day no matter what you do. Happy Valentines Day to you and your family!
