A Somewhat New Approach to Valentine's Day

Love is the air and a celebration of love, Valentine's Day, is just around the corner. It is amazing to read about how this occasion has evolved over the centuries. It is even celebrated in other countries. Some have told me Valentine's Day is a time for men to give a special gift, i.e. flowers, chocolates and/or jewelry to women opposed to Sweetest Day, celebrated in the Northwestern region of the country, where women are to give a gift to the special men in their lives.
Here are a few ideas to make THIS Valentine's Day a bit different from others you have celebrated in the past, whether you are single, in a relationship or celebrating as a family:
  1. Meal With A Theme – A Valentine's Day meal doesn't have to be synonymous with dinner... how about breakfast!  Try tossing a few cinnamon hearts in your favorite cereal, instead of orange juice enjoy cherry or cranberry juice, shape your toast, waffles or pancakes into a heart shape.
  2. Flowers – They are always lovely to receive and last for a moment, but the scent of your favorite flower can take you to another place and time over and over floral sprays. They come in the form of room mists, body splashes and even perfumes. Instead of a department store, check them out at your local health food store.
  3. Travel – Want to get the essence of travel without all of the hassle? Think of your favorite vacation destination...whether you have been there yet or not. Find a local restaurant that caters to the cuisine of that locality. Or create dishes at home that either you have experienced when traveling or are synonymous with your favorite vacation spot. For example, my dream vacation is Spain...I plan to dine at Mallorca in downtown Cleveland. Going to Don's Pomeroy House in Strongsville, might bring a variety of travel memories with its array of seafood, vegetarian, Italian dishes and steaks....and the desserts, WOW!
  4. Crafts - Hearts of a Different Color. Red screams Valentine's Day but it may not be your favorite color, create heart shape crafts using another color...even a variety of colors.
  5. Giving to Someone Outside the Norm – Most think of Valentine's Day and the ones they love or maybe even themselves but God tells us to love our neighbors too. How about giving something special to someone at church or a caregiver, single parent or senior citizen in your neighborhood. Check out stores like Big Lots, Target and Marc's for wonderful, affordable theme related gifts.
