Valentine's Day Ideas

Put cinnamon red hots in water in ice tray. Serve them in a glass of juice or tea.

Take a small clay pot and decorate by painting little red hearts on it. Fill up the pot with Hershey's Hugs, Hershey's Kisses, cinnamon red hots, Valentine's Day Conversation candies, etc.

Spray paint a basket any color and put you favorite stuffed animal in it. Trim with Valentine's red bows, lace, etc.

Get Sundae fixings (ice cream, fudge and butterscotch toppings, whipped cream, chopped nuts, cherries, the works!). Don't forget dishes and spoons. Set everything up and let your family make their own Sundaes or make a Sundae or Banana Split for your special someone.

Make some heart shaped pizzas. Use a heart cookie cutter to cut hearts out of toasted bread. Spread a little pizza sauce on it and top with some mozzarella cheese and broil long enough to melt the cheese.

Make some heart shaped breakfast. Melt butter (or olive oil) in frying pan. Using heart cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes in bread. Put the bread in the frying pan and toast one side. Flip bread and crack an egg in the heart shape in the center of the bread. Slowly cook to make a poached egg/soft fried egg in the bread.

Or make heart shaped pancakes. Take a large tuna can and cut off the top and the bottom. Scrunch and pinch one side in to make the can a heart shape. Place in the frying pan and pour the pancake batter in the heart shape.

Make a no-sew red-and-white ribbon tablecloth. Drape wide red ribbons over the length and width of a plain white tablecloth for a dramatic, romantic effect. Sprinkle a few rose petals on top and place lacy paper doilies under your china.

Leave sticky notes around the house for your loved one to find.

Add a love note to their lunch bag.

Surprise a spouse or loved one at work with a picnic lunch at the office (if it's appropriate). Make a nice basket and a small cooler and fill with some of your best recipes. Here are some ideas: condensed tomato soup cut with a can of beef broth and add a 1/2 tsp of horseradish; washed and topped fresh strawberries; deli cheese with some gourmet crackers; roast beef sandwiches on special bread; sliced cucumbers in sour cream with dill; some expensive chocolates; raspberry tea; strawberry tea; crab cakes on toast; etc.

Use a video camera and microphone to make a music video for your loved one. Lip sync to a love song and share it after dinner.

Go dancing without leaving home. Remove all the furniture from the dining room to create a dance floor. String white holiday lights around the room, play a romantic compact disc and perhaps even dress up.

Back rubs are very romantic. Make a fun guessing game by using different items from around the house to give each other back rubs. Award kisses for correct guesses.
