Remember that love is an action word– I cannot stress this one enough. Why wait until the big day? Schedule time leading up to February 14th to not just tell that special someone in your life that you love them, but to show them as well. Stumped on ideas? Try these:
- During the next 48 hours, do something for your spouse/mate/loved one that you have rarely (or never) done before (Remember: little love surprises can lead to big love rewards).
- Make your spouse/mate/loved one instantly happy by asking, “Honey, what can I do for you?”
- Throw your spouse/mate/loved one off-guard by giving them a gift prior to Valentine’s day. (Remember: spontaneity). Whether you want to say “I Love You,” “Happy Valentine’s Day,” or even “Just Because” to your spouse, significant other, mother, daughter or even best friend, you can’t go wrong with fresh fruit and gourmet chocolate!

And don’t let the celebration end once the Valentine’s Day is over! Here are some more ideas for couples to celebrate love all year long:
Commit to communicating love on a consistent basis by making the most of the time that you spend together. Eliminate the urge to “capture the moment” for sharing on social media, and focus on being fully in the moment instead.
Purchase a mini journal. Keep it on hand to jot down any ideas for celebrating your love that come to mind. Additionally, keep a log of things you’ve done and places you’ve gone to avoid (boring) repetition. Lastly, record the reactions and responses of your special someone at each event. Were they pleasantly surprised? Disappointed? Excited? Use these as tools to brainstorm new ideas for the future. Always plan for things that you know will put a smile on your loved one’s face.
