Now that I have been married for 15 years. Flowers and candy get old and I have found simple things go farther than a card that you buy at a store. Here are 10 free or almost free ideas to show your love on that day or any other day.
Get the kids together and compose a love song with a simple tune like happy birthday. Example: " We love you so much, hope you had a great day, With kisses from us, Happy Valentines day." Once I met my son at the door with a personalized birthday song and he said it was one of the best gifts he received.
Make a CD of their ten favorite songs.
Prepare a special bubble bath, everyone loves a bubble bath.
Copy a picture of his favorite character, make a valentine card for him with the picture.
Get the kids together and compose a play or dance for your special one. Grandma is now a computer user too so send it via the computer.
Find a day when just your love will be home and prepare a romantic room. I'll let you use your imagination.
For the kids take a huge piece of paper and make a huge card covering their bed room door.
At an unexpected moment kiss your love on the cheek in public.
Along the same line at an unexpected moment do something unexpected like opening the car door.
I could go on and on use you're imagination to show your love to the special people around you.
