Where the Heart Is: Valentine’s Day Ideas

Valentine’s Day is all about feeling the love, so why not start at home? After all, home is where the heart is. So, round up your family and get creative in how you show each other how much love is packed into your happy home. From fun crafts to sweet treats, we have the inspiration you need to make your loved ones’ hearts melt this Valentine’s Day.

Invite Love In 

Specializing in custom homes, we love the special touches that make a house uniquely yours. One of the most inviting areas of the home is the entryway. We love having something festive announce the holiday you’re celebrating, right when guests walk in. From a creative wreath adorning your door to a Valentine’s Day trail mix to greet your guests in the foyer with something sweet, Valentine’s Day smiles start when you ring the doorbell.

Handmade From the Heart

Nothing says, “I love you” more than a handmade gift. There are so many different crafts you can do with your family. From handmade cards to family artwork, the options are endless. And, the best part is the preparation! Cutting, assembling, gluing, painting and presenting the final product is a bonding experience in itself. Let your family’s creativity flow freely by doing some of these fun Valentine’s Day projects. Everyone from teachers and classmates to neighbors and grandparents will love to receive these heartfelt gifts.

Family Date Night

Instead of the typical dinner-and-a-movie combo, try a family date night at home! You’ll save money and the kids will treasure the time spent with you. While the menu for family date night can range from a fun and fancy Valentine’s Day salad to sweetheart-inspired s’mores in a jar, it’s the activities that your family won’t forget. Try playing musical hearts or making DIY Valentine’s Day crackers to pull before dinner. Whatever you do, it will be cherished time together.

Heart-Healthy Treats

During the school/work week leading up to Valentine’s Day, what nicer way to brighten someone’s day than making their lunch even more lovable? You can write love notes on fruit peels or get creative with your lunchbox staples. Fruits and veggies provide a wide variety of options to make everyday snacks special. From heart-shaped strawberries to a chicken-noodle soup you’ll love, there are plenty of ways to make Valentine’s Day food your family will love that’s also heart healthy.
