Five Fun Valentine's Day Ideas for Any Stage of Life

6:00 AM


Have chocolate dipping fun with friends. Now, don't panic if you're an introvert. This doesn't mean you need to invite your whole church or several friends. But invite a couple of friends or a couple you know and make chocolate-dipped strawberries and such together. This can be fun and festive no matter your relationship status.

Read by candlelight. Sadly, I'm not allowed to light candles in my apartment. However, I've been blessed with some awesome electric candles. Candles set such a relaxing mood or a romantic one. If you're going to read by candlelight, you need a lot of candles (real or electric). Try it. It might not be something you do every day, but it is fun.

Write notes telling people what they mean to you. You don't have to buy Valentine's Day cards or even give them on the 14th, but this is a good reminder to express our feelings and appreciation for the people around us. 

Make a heart-shaped something. My mom gave me a heart-shaped pan I plan to use and it should be a lot of fun. You might make a heart-shaped pizza or cookies. This can even be a group project or something fun to do as a couple. Even if you just make something for yourself, it can be a simple but fun activity. 

Reflect on God's love for you. Even though this is a largely secular holiday, we can use it as a reminder to pause and reflect on the best love we've been given. All the love we ever show, even romantic love, should flow out of the love God has given to us. You can do this by remembering in your heart, reading a passage or story in scripture that reflects God's love for you, or talking about it with a friend or family member.
