Sometimes we need to be reminded to pause and give our loved ones a little extra attention – whether it be your “honey”, your kids, a family member, or someone you know who just needs a special reminder that they are loved. Here are 5 Frugal Ideas…
For Your Honey:
- Have a Date Night “In” and plan some special touches. After the kids are in bed, make a late supper together, eat by candlelight, listen to grown-up music (No “Kids Bop allowed!), and watch a romantic movie together. Room for desert? Try chocolate-covered strawberries or something decadent and delish.
If you’re looking for a romantic date at home without breaking the bank, check out this FREE Valentine Cards Date-Night Game for a sweet and fun night in! Just print out the sheet of 30 Free Valentine Cards with ideas of fun and thoughtful conversation starters.
Cut them out and fold them in half, and place them in a bowl on the table. Set the scene with some music, special snacks, and get ready to learn more about each other!
Teachers love Valentine’s Day just as much as the students! It is a fun time to make Valentine’s as a class, learn more about the history of the holiday, and exchange little gifts. Teachers typically receive lots of goodies to enjoy on Valentine’s Day from their students, including the traditional chocolate and flowers. And while these gifts are very thoughtful and sweet, perhaps you are looking for something a little more unique this year to give? If you want to give your child’s teacher a fun and purposeful Valentine’s Day gift this year, look no further!
