5 Ways to Show Love for Friends and Family on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and you may be wondering what you can do for the holiday. Showing your love on Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be extravagant or expensive, the thought is what matters most. Valentine’s isn’t just for relationships, it’s a time to show your friends and family how special they are to you and to demonstrate your appreciation.

Here are 5 ways you can show your care to your friends and family on Valentine’s Day.

DIY Spa Day
We could all use some self care right now. Show your appreciation by holding a do-it-yourself spa day for your best girlfriends. Use ingredients from your kitchen and make homemade face masks, a natural skin exfoliant, and hair masks for various hair types. Grab a couple festive colored nail polishes from the nearest drug store and pamper yourselves together this holiday!


Crafts
Remember back in the day when you made fun Valentine’s Day crafts in elementary school? It was something we looked forward to and had a blast doing. Crafts aren’t only for kids, you can bring some creativity and playfulness into your holiday as an adult too. Create some fun crafts with your loved ones or for your loved ones. You can make homemade cards, a heart-shaped wreath, candy hearts garland, photo frames, candles, and more.

Cook a Meal or Make Desserts
Dinner nights are so much more fun with your favorite people and perhaps some delicious wine. Have everyone pick a fun and unique dish to make or bring and try some new recipes! Maybe desserts are more your style? Have a baking party and make some festive cupcakes or mouth-watering cookies.

Go on a Picnic
Spending time outside to appreciate nature alongside your best pals or family is a great way to get in some quality time. Pack up a picnic and head to your favorite spot in town - your favorite park, the beach, or maybe even someone’s backyard. Enjoy the sights and sounds of your environment and take time to be present and catch up on life with your people.

Heartfelt Cards or Thank You Notes
We often forget to tell our loved ones how much we appreciate all that they do and how much they mean to us. Take this Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to write a heartfelt card or thank you note for those people that make your life brighter and make their days a bit brighter too with your kind words.

It’s time to get festive this Valentine’s Day and show your love for friends and family!
