A couple of years into the relationship

Cute Valentines Day Ideas - Love Jar

By Creme de la Craft

The longer we are in a relationship, life and other distractions tend to get in the way. Sometimes after the honeymoon period, we can accidentally get in the habit of taking each other for granted and we often forget to remind each other we appreciate them.

Instead of spending a lot of money this Valentine’s day, why not put together something that reminds your partner that despite the fact they always leave their dirty socks on the floor and they fart in their sleep, you still think they are a bit of all-right?

Hide heart shaped post-it notes with your favourite qualities of them in their lunch or the book they are reading or their jacket pocket. Create a jar of notes starting with I Love You Because….. Or pre-plan 12 dates- one a month for the rest of the year and make sure you go on them.

Family with Kids

Having a family is hard work. Creating miniature versions of the both of you is the best thing you’ll ever achieve in life, but it’s also challenging, stressful and time-consuming. And leaves very little time for romance in your relationship.

So this Valentine’s Day, why not declare the day a child-free zone? We don’t care who you have to pay, bribe or blackmail, get someone to mind the kids for the day and ban all conversation that involves them. Spend the day being just a couple again. Maybe you just want to relax in each other’s company, take a walk, go to the beach with a bottle of wine or do whatever you used to do pre-kids.
