Share the Love with These Valentine's Day Ideas

February 6, 2023

Listen & Read

With Valentine’s Day coming up on February 14th, there’s no better time to get into a romantic mood. Is there someone you have your eye on? Or maybe you want to show your long-term partner some appreciation or even send some warm vibes to your friends and family? If so, I’ve got you covered.

In this post, you’ll find three ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

A classic card

Offering your loved one a card on Valentine’s Day, along with a box of chocolates, is never a bad idea. Include a few lines of verse to get your message across. This timeless Valentine’s Day poem can do the trick:

Roses are red.

Violets are blue.

Sugar is sweet,

And so are you!

But why not make your own variation? Notice how the second and fourth line rhyme. It is easy to substitute these two lines with your own rhyming lines, like this:

Roses are red.

Your eyes are brown.

You are the cutest 

Girl in this town!

Of course, Valentine’s Day cards don’t have to follow a formula. Any personal sentiment is sure to make your loved one swoon! And if you want to get things just right, check out this post on Valentine's Day Capitalization & Punctuation Rules.

A home-cooked meal

It’s no secret that restaurants tend to be very busy on Valentine’s Day. So why not re-create the restaurant experience at home? Bring out your best tablecloth and light some candles. Then serve your loved one their favorite home-cooked meal. Or, even better, cook the meal together!

A treasure hunt

If you’re looking for something a little more unique, you might want to try a treasure hunt. Grab a stack of notecards and number them from 1 to 10. On each card, write a clue about where to find the next card. Hide all the cards in your house, except the first one, which should be somewhere obvious. Your loved one will have a blast searching for each clue! And if you’re feeling especially romantic, why not hide a gift along with the last card?


  • appreciation: a feeling of thankfulness
  • vibes: feelings
  • verse: poetry
  • timeless: always relevant
  • variation: version
  • substitute: to put one thing in the place of another
  • formula: a standard plan 
  • sentiment: expressed emotion
  • swoon: to feel an emotion, such as romantic love, so strongly that you almost faint
  • tend to: to usually do or have
  • obvious: clear, not hard to figure out
  • have a blast: to have fun
