KB Moms’ Valentine’s Day Traditions and Gift Ideas

“My husband I have a tradition of each picking a new recipe to make on Valentine’s Day, and then we cook together.”

“We make a fancy dinner at home. Once I got my hubby a gift from Man Crates, and it was a hit.”

“We usually get a heart-shaped pizza and watch A Charlie Brown Valentine with the kids. I try to surprise him with French pressed coffee in the morning - might get him a bag of freshly roasted coffee beans from our local coffee shop! That and a new French press would be a great gift for a tired partner! Other things that come to mind are a subscription to Dollar Shave Club, Google Home Hub, or maybe some great wine or beer - something local?”

“My husband and I are doing a cooking class. We started this a couple years ago. We do the cooking class a week or so before, then make the dinner together for Valentine’s Day. What I’m getting him from my son is a daddy playdate. I am setting them up with a full day of activities that will include breakfast, the children’s museum, and a dance party after a nap.” 

“I got my husband some locally made cufflinks last year. He loves them and wears them often since he wears a suit and tie to work daily.”

“Starting February 1, for each of our kids, we put a heart with something we love about them on their door; we do that every day until Valentine’s Day. On Valentine’s Day, we love for them to wake up to something special... balloons or flowers and donuts. And usually chocolate. It always made me feel special as a kid when my dad would do that (and he would leave for work before we even woke up!), so we do the same."

"We do a hearts-themed dinner. I make whatever they’re into eating at the time. Dye the milk pink, cut the sandwich into a heart. Last year, I cut up string cheese into heart shapes. I sprinkled pink sprinkles over it, threw some appropriately colored/shaped fruit on the plate, etc.: easy, cheap, and reproducible in its own way every year. I also like to use Valentine’s Day-themed paper plates and napkins. And of course, we all wear pink/red during the day.” 

No matter how you celebrate Valentine's Day, we hope you remember you're loved – this day and every day.
