Remember mixed tapes? This Valentines Day, make your husband or wife a cd with all their favorite music.
Send them a You-Tube video with a song or a poem singing their virtues!
Send a special Skype video message instead of a traditional love note, listing all the reasons you love them still.
Take a family walk – be sure to hold hands and talk about the good old days.
Put the kids to bed early and share a candle light dinner with your favorite foods.
Bring them breakfast in bed with a handmade card.
Place sticky notes around the house – like on the bathroom mirror, by the coffee maker, on a breakfast tray, in a briefcase – all with different messages telling them why you love them.
Create a coupon book full of favorite date night ideas and romantic notions that can be redeemed monthly, weekly, and daily. These don’t need to be expensive to be appreciated. Think: evening picnic, a foot rub and a favorite movie, a drive in the country, or a stroll through downtown and out for coffee.
Create a practical book with redeemable coupons for the chores they hate to do. How about: wash the car, cut the grass, or weed the garden? Use whatever may be a small sacrifice on your part, but will mean the most to them!
Bust out the apron and get to baking! No need to spend lots of money on chocolate candy when the homemade kind is even better.
