“The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing.”
Love is in the air with this month of hearts and roses. February 14th is a wonderful day to spend Valentine’s Day with your family, and a wonderful time to celebrate and strengthen your family bond.

Though it maybe the day for lovers, it is a great day to express your love and feelings for your own family. Feel blessed to have a wonderful family, a wonderful husband or wife, wonderful kids, and a wonderful God who blesses us beyond measures.

There are various things all of you as a family can do, to celebrate Valentine’s Day together.

  • Moms can give out flowers and chocolates at breakfast, heard-shaped cookies in lunch boxes, and end dinner with a heart-shaped cake. Dads can plan out special family outings for everyone.
  • Get your family and kids together to celebrate Valentine’s Day with you, if you do not want to go out.
  • Invite your whole family for dinner, though don’t work too much and get dinner from outside, unless all of you also help cooking it up!
  • Get ready in your best clothes and ask your kids to set the table nicely. All of you as a family can decorate the dining area with red paper hearts cut outs, candles and roses.
  • As a family each one of you can exchange hand-made cards with a few nice thoughtful words, or exchange small token gifts.
  • Spend Valentine’s Day with your family and organize a few games like treasure hunt, which kids are simply going to love. Small notes about how you feel about them accompanied with small gifts, hidden around the house will surely make them happy.
  • If you have grandparents, brother, sisters, moms, dads, husband, wife, son, daughter etc in your large family, then create a family Valentine’s Day poem to express your love.
  • Spend Valentine’s Day with your family by playing special music and get everyone in the mood.
  • If you want to spend Valentine’s Day with your family by going out for a picnic, then cook up some yummy dishes at home, pack then into your Valentine basket along with some goodies and games to have a wonderful time. You could try out heart shaped pizzas, heart-shaped pancakes or plan to eat out with your family at your favorite eating joint.

Even though Valentine’s Day has got very commercialized, the true meaning of the day is to show your appreciation and love to your loved ones, so take out that quality time to spend Valentine’s Day with your family and express your love to them.

    I said this on the other post and I am saying it again! I love the sense of family you bring in with every post!

    One Valentines; our family decided to dress in red that day and yes we did! It was so much fun just to see all of us in red that day; we exchanged gifts and all and that picture still remains a favorite!

    Surprising how many of my best memories are mostly related to times spent with family. You will always fall in and out of live with other people; but family is something you can never fall out of love with! :) So, yes, they are like the permanent date every Valentines! :)

      Thanks for those kind words Hajra!

      Guess my family always comes first, so it must be showing through my posts- but I don’t mind that one bit and am in fact happy if it does :)

      Dressing in red as a whole family for Valentine’s is such a cute idea! Just the thought has me all smiling! And it’s these smallest of deeds or actions that we do together as a family that bring us so much closer to each other.

      Yes indeed, you can never fall out of love with your family, even though with others that may happen. So, it does make sense spending your Valentine’s with them- isn’t it?!

      Thanks so much for stopping by :)

        I love that you manage to highlight family values. It makes me feel so connected to your posts. I come from a family with strong bonds and I love how I relate to your posts! :)

        Valentines with family is probably the best idea for singles! ;) And for people who are in a relationship – getting back to family! :)

          I can see that you too are family oriented like me Hajra! Nice to know that :)

          Family bonding is of utmost importance to me, and no matter the occasion, or even if there is none- just to be able to connect to your dear ones is what really matters- isn’t it?

          You are absolutely right there, though people often forget to get back and connect to their families on Valentine’s! I wish they did, just as we do- as my husband’s idea of a Valentine is always with the family, never just the two of us. :)

          Thanks for adding to the conversation. :)
