I'm not sure how many men read our blog, so you may have to accidentally on purpose show it to him if you like these ideas...oops! If you are a man and do read it, leave us a comment and tell us what you have planned.
Why Men Need Valentine's Day
- I think men need this day, and there is one reason why:
For many men, without this "deadline," they would never tell their wife they love her. They would never buy her flowers or take her to dinner. Romantic Hallmark cards would become a thing of the past.
So guys, let's take action. Let's show and tell our wives how much they mean to us. Here's one way I do:
Years ago I bought this journal for my wife. Frankly, I was tired of searching through Hallmark cards each Valentine's Day and birthday. They never quite seemed to say what I wanted to say, and I got into the habit of simply writing, "I love you" after the script on the card.
This has really become a sweet gift for her each holiday. I typically steal it a few days before the occasion, spend a while writing in it while drinking a cup of coffee, and then present it to her on the special day. I am no longer confined to what the generic card says, but I can now do my own thing.
Let’s face it: camping isn’t always sexy (bug spray and outdoor toilets can be a romance buzzkill, to say the least). But "glamping" (glamorous camping) can make for the ultimate Valentines Day staycation. Tents are optional in the backyard or even the bedroom, whip up a batch of s’mores, light up the fireplace, turn on a good movie and get all cozy in that sleeping bag for deux.
A friend of mine told me her and her husband were taking the Love Dare. Remember that? Pretty awesome Valentine gift!!
