Valentine’s Day Cookies
Making cookies for Valentine’s Day is a fun tradition for many families. You won’t be able to resist these delicious recipes.

I would eat a cupcake any day of the year, but an unusual Valentine’s Day spin on your typical cupcake makes them even more amazing than usual!
Homemade from Scratch Strawberry Cupcakes Strawberry Cupcakes With Vanilla Buttercream these cupcakes are moist and delicious. They are not dense but they are not fluffy either they are right in the middle the perfect balance.
Valentine’s Day Games
A favorite game that we like to play is “I love you because…” I hand out a stack of post it notes to each member of the family. Then we write why we love each member of our family and hide the notes throughout the house. (The idea is to hide it somewhere that the person will naturally find it as they move throughout their day. Near bedrooms or toothbrushes, for instance.)
Valentine’s Day Dinner (at Home)
Dinner at home can be as simple or as fancy as you like. Even if you splurge for steaks that you might not normally purchase, it will still be cheaper (and less crowded!) if you grill them at home rather than going out.
Set the mood with candles and your favorite romantic music.
You can end the meal with a delicious dessert like this Valentine’s Day Chocolate Raspberry Cream Cheese Mousse from The Rebel Chick.
Valentine’s Day Gifts
A romantic or just fun idea to try is writing down memories you have with your significant other on to scraps of paper. Place the papers in a jar or fun container so your giftee can pull one out to reminisce whenever they need a smile.
Valentine’s Day Boxes
If you managed to save the shoe boxes from your child’s latest pair of shoes, it is easy to make that into a fun box to collect cards in! If not, don’t worry. There are other things you can use.
Valentine’s Day Card Ideas
Don’t forget to have a Valentine’s Day card ready to give to your sweetie! If you balk at the idea of spending $5 at the store, try this instead.
Rather than making a card, consider writing a love note to your sweetie. Talk about your favorite things about your loved one and reminisce about your favorite memories that you have shared.
