Valentines Day is the perfect excuse to celebrate love.
Valentine’s Day may be a time to appreciate one another and celebrate your love, but this does not necessarily mean that we have to lavish each other in expensive gifts, where the price tag may have been raised because of the holiday associated with the time of year.
Why not celebrate Valentines Day this year with a lovely duvet day for all the family, grab some comfy cushions, put your pyjamas on and pad out the living room in front of the fire. All decide on some favourite DVDs, snacks and treats and spend some quality time as a family. Just relax! You could even try some relaxation exercises together, so that you all experience being calm and serene in this manic world together.
You could also make some hearts and write what you love about each other in the hearts.
Why not send each other a secret love letter and list all the reasons why you love each other or leave love notes around the house.
You could make heart shaped cookies or fortune cookies and leave love notes inside each one.
Get the children involved in dinner and let each member have their favourite item. Decorate the table and light candles to make it special.
