Great Valentines Ideas....

These Are Great Ideas.
This week is Valentines week, I am picking out 1 special thing to do for my husband every day this week. I encourage you to do the same! No excuses, that you don't know what to is a list to choose from :)
Make Him Feel Special!
Have FUN with it!!!

1)For young couples with kids, get them involved in an all-family fun Valentine's Day dinner at home. Mom can prepare a dessert for two and light the candles while dad puts the kids to bed.
2)Since Valentine's Day is on a Saturday, celebrate with a day full of low-cost activities you both enjoy doing (depending upon your location and weather). Do something with your significant other that he/she rarely has time to do, but loves.
3.)Make the entire day full of his favorites: the breakfast of his dreams, the dinner of his dreams, TV that is his favorite, his music, etc. Don't say anything about it, surprise him all day long.
4.)Create a framed group of photos that put your relationship in chronological order of events, by months or years (depending on how long you've been together).
5.)Give each other long-lingering back rubs or head-to-toe body massages. Invest in luxurious lotion or oils.
6.)Watch an old movie at home together, with popcorn and soft drinks and candy - movie-theater style.
7.)On Valentine's Day, place three pair of sexy undies on your bed and let your mate pick out which one you should wear. It's your secret!
8.)Write a "Top 10 Reasons Why I Love You" list.
9.)Leave a note on your mate's pillow expressing how special you think he/she is. Place a couple of mints on the pillow, too (or a single rose)...all to be discovered at bedtime.
10.)Use a bar of soap to draft a love note on your bathroom mirror. Or, if you shower first, write a love note to your sweetheart in the steam on the mirror.
11.)Use fabric paint to decorate a Valentine's Day pillowcase for your loved one. Check arts-and-crafts web sites for other easy-to-make gifts.
12.)In the morning, tuck a love note in his pocket or her pocketbook or other certain-to-be-found spot. Jot down some meaningful words on a piece of paper - "Can't wait to wrap my arms around you tonight!"; "What's for 'dessert'?"; "You make me happy every day!" - and tuck it in a conspicuous location to be easily discovered during the day.
13.)Have a 15-minute kissing session and try some new ways and places to kiss. The same old smoocheroo can get boring. Use your imagination...and perhaps a little whipped cream, chocolate syrup, etc.
14.)What are your mate's quirks and habits that irk you? Don't nag about any of them the entire day. Then try to extend the no-nagging effort to every day of the year. Remember, you're never going to change the other person.
15.)If you don't have a special sweetheart, focus on bringing a smile or laughter to everyone you come in contact with on Valentine's Day.

Do you have any ideas to add, or something special you do for your husband? Please share with us in comment section.

WELL.....since you asked we went and bought a new bed---it is being delivered on Valentines Day---which is a blessing as my husband will be home and I won't have to deal with delivery guys--it was a big purchase and not because of the day...think we will probably grill salmon, rain or shine or snow...or something like that...
We have a low keyed V-day---it seems so close right after Christmas...I have in the past made HEART -shaped meatloafs...given candlelight breakfast before everyone left for school or work...etc...maybe I need to bring some of those things back once this house is settled...hmmmm--hope yours is great.
