Want to know a secret? I didn’t start celebrating Valentine’s Day until about two years into my marriage. I thought it was the most cliche and overrated holiday out there. Sometimes I still do. Sometimes it all just seems so commercial. Little red dress (or little black dress), roses, flowers, dinner and a movie. Chocolates and teddy bears. For some people that’s perfect, but for me, it’s all a bit much. I wanted to try something different. Something creative that neither of us had done before. When I came across these DIY Date Ideas from the Dating Divas I knew I had found EXACTLY what I was looking for! There are two that really caught my eye. They’re fun, romantic, and maybe even a little bit steamy (who says marriage can’t be steamy?). Well, I can’t in good conscience keep them to myself, so today, I’m going to share them with you!
A Week of Hot DIY Dates for You And Your Valentine
What really resonated with me when I first saw these DIY ideas is that they are not just a one and done kind of Valentines Day. These kits have you celebrating your love for each other all week long! For me, that’s really important. I want my LIFE to reflect the love I have for my husband. And I love that these kits can teach you how to foster a marriage that makes every day special, and not just Valentines Day. Ok, enough talk. Let’s get talking about these date nights!
Treat Your Man to A Week of Spoiling
This is a great way to lead up to Valentines Day! You could call it a countdown I guess. Or a fabulous week of incredible Valentines Day Dates. It’s called 7 Days of Spoiling. We learned a while ago that material gifts just aren’t really our thing. We’ve worked so hard to declutter our home, we want to keep it looking clean and spacious (it’s amazing how spacious your home looks when it’s not full of stuff). The gift of spoiling your spouse means that you’re giving the gift of experiences, ones that you can both enjoy together.
You know what I love about it?! It’s 100% customizable! That’s about as personal and heartfelt a gift as you can give. You choose ways to spoil your spouse that match their tastes and interests. It’s really easy to assemble and it’s a digital product so you could print it off now and have it ready to set out for the big day, OR if you’re the procrastinating type (no judgment here ;p ) you can throw it together last minute. He’ll never know!
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve ordered gifts for my husband using the quickest (and most expensive) delivery method available because I waited until the very last second. With this gift, I can keep my money in my pocket and can almost guarantee that my man is going to have the best Valentine gift on the block!
14 Ways to Shower Your Spouse With Love
We know that there’s often a lot of pressure to find the perfect meaningful and romantic gift as love day draws near. But like you and I both know, there aren’t always endless hours available to us prep something special for the man we love (as much as we wish otherwise). ESPECIALLY when you’re busy making classroom valentines and mailboxes for each kiddo in the family. They want to celebrate the big day too! Am I right? (I get it. I’m a busy mom and wife too). Which is why you’ll LOVE this 14 Day Valentines Countdown! Most of the work is already done for you, so all you have to do print and prep. Simple as pie! And it’s a fun memorable way to celebrate St. Valentines Day.
