February is a month for romance and, sure, we love Valentine’s Day as much as the next person (although, if we’re being honest, we’re mostly in it for the chocolate). But all kinds of relationships are important! Whether it’s romantic or platonic, there’s nothing like knowing someone will always be there for you.
If you ask us, celebrating love should happen every day, not just one day a year. There are so many types of love to appreciate - friendship, family love, romance, caregiver to child. Let’s normalize telling the important people in our lives that we love them!
Candlelit dinners are nice, but we also love non-traditional, creative ways to celebrate, like having a dance party or going for a hike. What could be better than building new memories that you’ll remember for years to come, while spending quality time with family and friends? Plus, you can take pictures of your fun activities and compile them into a photo book to give as a gift next Valentine’s day!
Looking for more ideas? Throw a party, bake a cake, wear pink and red from head to toe, make a list of all the things you love about your people and share it with them, take over a chore that your family member usually does, give a gift, write and perform a song, throw confetti, or buy flowers.
