Being a single mom I personally enjoy celebrating valentine’s day with my kids so it totally depends on who you celebrate the day with, generally some people celebrate it with their partners and romantic interest, while some with their parents or siblings and so on. In my honest opinion, all days of the year are filled with love and I assume the same applies to most of you, but we should still take this one day to celebrate love, and share the love we have for people we love the most in our lives. And express it to them in whatever manner we can. There are tons and tons of ways to express your love for your loved ones from making them cards to getting them gifts. Chocolates and flowers express love in the best way possible, but even a little pampering or cooking a meal for someone you love gets the message across.I see how some people gift their loved ones various health and beauty hampers. So this valentine’s let’s break the norm of buying the same stuff and spill your creativity beans. I have a few tips, tricks & DIYS down here in my blog to show you how to create personalized presents! Make this Valentine’s Day more special by introducing interesting little fun activities that can be done with kids and your loved ones, both.
