Valentine’s Day might be my favorite holiday. I love the cheesy hearts and forced signs of affection. I love that the stores are overflowing with flowers and one of those $20 bunches may end up on my dining room table. I have also learned to be very comfortable with buying my own flowers (since I am the one who loves them so much), besides what I REALLY LOVE from my husband on Valentine’s Day (or for any date) is creativity, a date made just for me because he knows it is a unique idea or activity that we will love. So, if you like creativity or need last minute ideas, here are 9 date/gift options for your honey and you plus 8 kid-friendly activities to make the best memories for your family this Valentine’s Day!
